1Samuel 1
King James Version (with Strongs Data)
1Now there was a certainH259 manH376 of RamathaimzophimH7436, of mountH2022 EphraimH669, and his nameH8034 was ElkanahH511, the sonH1121 of JerohamH3395, the sonH1121 of ElihuH453, the sonH1121 of TohuH8459, the sonH1121 of ZuphH6689, an EphrathiteH673: 2And he had twoH8147 wivesH802; the nameH8034 of the oneH259 was HannahH2584, and the nameH8034 of the otherH8145 PeninnahH6444: and PeninnahH6444 had childrenH3206, but HannahH2584 had no childrenH3206. 3And thisH1931 manH376 went upH5927 out of his cityH5892 yearlyH3117H3117 to worshipH7812 and to sacrificeH2076 unto the LORDH3068 of hostsH6635 in ShilohH7887. And the twoH8147 sonsH1121 of EliH5941, HophniH2652 and PhinehasH6372, the priestsH3548 of the LORDH3068, were there. 4And when the timeH3117 was that ElkanahH511 offeredH2076, he gaveH5414 to PeninnahH6444 his wifeH802, and to all her sonsH1121 and her daughtersH1323, portionsH4490: 5But unto HannahH2584 he gaveH5414 aH259 worthyH639 portionH4490; for he lovedH157 HannahH2584: but the LORDH3068 had shut upH5462 her wombH7358. 6And her adversaryH6869 also provokedH3707 her soreH3708, for to make her fretH7481, because the LORDH3068 had shutH5462 upH1157 her wombH7358. 7And as he didH6213 so yearH8141 by yearH8141, whenH1767 she went upH5927 to the houseH1004 of the LORDH3068, so she provokedH3707 her; therefore she weptH1058, and did not eatH398. 8Then saidH559 ElkanahH511 her husbandH376 to her, HannahH2584, why weepestH1058 thou? and why eatestH398 thou not? and why is thy heartH3824 grievedH3415? am not I betterH2896 to thee than tenH6235 sonsH1121? 9So HannahH2584 rose upH6965 afterH310 they had eatenH398 in ShilohH7887, and afterH310 they had drunkH8354. Now EliH5941 the priestH3548 satH3427 upon a seatH3678 by a postH4201 of the templeH1964 of the LORDH3068. 10And she was in bitternessH4751 of soulH5315, and prayedH6419 unto the LORDH3068, and weptH1058 soreH1058. 11And she vowedH5087 a vowH5088, and saidH559, O LORDH3068 of hostsH6635, if thou wilt indeedH7200 lookH7200 on the afflictionH6040 of thine handmaidH519, and rememberH2142 me, and not forgetH7911 thine handmaidH519, but wilt giveH5414 unto thine handmaidH519 a manH582 childH2233, then I will giveH5414 him unto the LORDH3068 all the daysH3117 of his lifeH2416, and there shall no razorH4177 comeH5927 upon his headH7218. 12And it came to pass, as she continuedH7235 prayingH6419 beforeH6440 the LORDH3068, that EliH5941 markedH8104 her mouthH6310. 13Now HannahH2584, she spakeH1696 in her heartH3820; only her lipsH8193 movedH5128, but her voiceH6963 was not heardH8085: therefore EliH5941 thoughtH2803 she had been drunkenH7910. 14And EliH5941 saidH559 unto her, How long wilt thou be drunkenH7937? put awayH5493 thy wineH3196 from thee. 15And HannahH2584 answeredH6030 and saidH559, No, my lordH113, I am a womanH802 of a sorrowfulH7186 spiritH7307: I have drunkH8354 neither wineH3196 nor strong drinkH7941, but have poured outH8210 my soulH5315 beforeH6440 the LORDH3068. 16CountH5414 not thine handmaidH519 forH6440 a daughterH1323 of BelialH1100: for out of the abundanceH7230 of my complaintH7879 and griefH3708 have I spokenH1696 hitherto. 17Then EliH5941 answeredH6030 and saidH559, GoH3212 in peaceH7965: and the GodH430 of IsraelH3478 grantH5414 thee thy petitionH7596 that thou hast askedH7592 of him. 18And she saidH559, Let thine handmaidH8198 findH4672 graceH2580 in thy sightH5869. So the womanH802 wentH3212 her wayH1870, and did eatH398, and her countenanceH6440 was no more sad. 19And they rose upH7925 in the morningH1242 earlyH7925, and worshippedH7812 beforeH6440 the LORDH3068, and returnedH7725, and cameH935 to their houseH1004 to RamahH7414: and ElkanahH511 knewH3045 HannahH2584 his wifeH802; and the LORDH3068 rememberedH2142 her. 20Wherefore it came to pass, when the timeH3117 was comeH8622 about after HannahH2584 had conceivedH2029, that she bareH3205 a sonH1121, and calledH7121 his nameH8034 SamuelH8050, saying, Because I have askedH7592 him of the LORDH3068. 21And the manH376 ElkanahH511, and all his houseH1004, went upH5927 to offerH2076 unto the LORDH3068 the yearlyH3117 sacrificeH2077, and his vowH5088. 22But HannahH2584 went not upH5927; for she saidH559 unto her husbandH376, I will not go up until the childH5288 be weanedH1580, and then I will bringH935 him, that he may appearH7200 beforeH6440 the LORDH3068, and there abideH3427 forH5704 everH5769. 23And ElkanahH511 her husbandH376 saidH559 unto her, DoH6213 what seemethH5869 thee goodH2896; tarryH3427 until thou have weanedH1580 him; only the LORDH3068 establishH6965 his wordH1697. So the womanH802 abodeH3427, and gave her sonH1121 suckH3243 until she weanedH1580 him. 24And when she had weanedH1580 him, she took him upH5927 with her, with threeH7969 bullocksH6499, and oneH259 ephahH374 of flourH7058, and a bottleH5035 of wineH3196, and broughtH935 him unto the houseH1004 of the LORDH3068 in ShilohH7887: and the childH5288 was youngH5288. 25And they slewH7819 a bullockH6499, and broughtH935 the childH5288 to EliH5941. 26And she saidH559, OhH994 my lordH113, as thy soulH5315 livethH2416, my lordH113, I am the womanH802 that stoodH5324 by thee here, prayingH6419 unto the LORDH3068. 27For this childH5288 I prayedH6419; and the LORDH3068 hath givenH5414 me my petitionH7596 which I askedH7592 of him: 28Therefore also I have lentH7592 him to the LORDH3068; as long as he livethH3117 he shall be lentH7592 to the LORDH3068. And he worshippedH7812 the LORDH3068 there.
