King James Version

The Family of Elkanah

1Now there was a certain man of Ramathaimzophim, of mount Ephraim, and his name was Elkanah, the son of Jeroham, the son of Elihu, the son of Tohu, the son of Zuph, an Ephrathite:H259H376H7436H2022H669H8034H511H1121H3395H1121H453H1121H8459H1121H6689H673 2And he had two wives; the name of the one was Hannah, and the name of the other Peninnah: and Peninnah had children, but Hannah had no children.H8147H802H8034H259H2584H8034H8145H6444H6444H3206H2584H3206 3And this man went up out of his city yearly to worship and to sacrifice unto the LORD of hosts in Shiloh. And the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, the priests of the LORD, were there.H1931H376H5927H5892H3117H3117H7812H2076H3068H6635H7887H8147H1121H5941H2652H6372H3548H3068 4And when the time was that Elkanah offered, he gave to Peninnah his wife, and to all her sons and her daughters, portions:H3117H511H2076H5414H6444H802H1121H1323H4490 5But unto Hannah he gave a worthy portion; for he loved Hannah: but the LORD had shut up her womb.H2584H5414H259H639H4490H157H2584H3068H5462H7358 6And her adversary also provoked her sore, for to make her fret, because the LORD had shut up her womb.H6869H3707H3708H7481H3068H5462H1157H7358 7And as he did so year by year, when she went up to the house of the LORD, so she provoked her; therefore she wept, and did not eat.H6213H8141H8141H1767H5927H1004H3068H3707H1058H398

Hannah’s Vow

8Then said Elkanah her husband to her, Hannah, why weepest thou? and why eatest thou not? and why is thy heart grieved? am not I better to thee than ten sons?H559H511H376H2584H1058H398H3824H3415H2896H6235H1121 9So Hannah rose up after they had eaten in Shiloh, and after they had drunk. Now Eli the priest sat upon a seat by a post of the temple of the LORD.H2584H6965H310H398H7887H310H8354H5941H3548H3427H3678H4201H1964H3068 10And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the LORD, and wept sore.H4751H5315H6419H3068H1058H1058 11And she vowed a vow, and said, O LORD of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the LORD all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head.H5087H5088H559H3068H6635H7200H7200H6040H519H2142H7911H519H5414H519H582H2233H5414H3068H3117H2416H4177H5927H7218 12And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the LORD, that Eli marked her mouth.H7235H6419H6440H3068H5941H8104H6310 13Now Hannah, she spake in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken.H2584H1696H3820H8193H5128H6963H8085H5941H2803H7910 14And Eli said unto her, How long wilt thou be drunken? put away thy wine from thee.H5941H559H7937H5493H3196 15And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the LORD.H2584H6030H559H113H802H7186H7307H8354H3196H7941H8210H5315H6440H3068 16Count not thine handmaid for a daughter of Belial: for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief have I spoken hitherto.H5414H519H6440H1323H1100H7230H7879H3708H1696 17Then Eli answered and said, Go in peace: and the God of Israel grant thee thy petition that thou hast asked of him.H5941H6030H559H3212H7965H430H3478H5414H7596H7592 18And she said, Let thine handmaid find grace in thy sight. So the woman went her way, and did eat, and her countenance was no more sad.H559H8198H4672H2580H5869H802H3212H1870H398H6440

Samuel Is Born and Dedicated

19And they rose up in the morning early, and worshipped before the LORD, and returned, and came to their house to Ramah: and Elkanah knew Hannah his wife; and the LORD remembered her.H7925H1242H7925H7812H6440H3068H7725H935H1004H7414H511H3045H2584H802H3068H2142 20Wherefore it came to pass, when the time was come about after Hannah had conceived, that she bare a son, and called his name Samuel, saying, Because I have asked him of the LORD.H3117H8622H2584H2029H3205H1121H7121H8034H8050H7592H3068 21And the man Elkanah, and all his house, went up to offer unto the LORD the yearly sacrifice, and his vow.H376H511H1004H5927H2076H3068H3117H2077H5088 22But Hannah went not up; for she said unto her husband, I will not go up until the child be weaned, and then I will bring him, that he may appear before the LORD, and there abide for ever.H2584H5927H559H376H5288H1580H935H7200H6440H3068H3427H5704H5769 23And Elkanah her husband said unto her, Do what seemeth thee good; tarry until thou have weaned him; only the LORD establish his word. So the woman abode, and gave her son suck until she weaned him.H511H376H559H6213H5869H2896H3427H1580H3068H6965H1697H802H3427H1121H3243H1580 24And when she had weaned him, she took him up with her, with three bullocks, and one ephah of flour, and a bottle of wine, and brought him unto the house of the LORD in Shiloh: and the child was young.H1580H5927H7969H6499H259H374H7058H5035H3196H935H1004H3068H7887H5288H5288 25And they slew a bullock, and brought the child to Eli.H7819H6499H935H5288H5941 26And she said, Oh my lord, as thy soul liveth, my lord, I am the woman that stood by thee here, praying unto the LORD.H559H994H113H5315H2416H113H802H5324H6419H3068 27For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him:H5288H6419H3068H5414H7596H7592 28Therefore also I have lent him to the LORD; as long as he liveth he shall be lent to the LORD. And he worshipped the LORD there.H7592H3068H3117H7592H3068H7812H3068
