Hannah’s Prayer

2And HannahH2584 prayedH6419, and saidH559, My heartH3820 rejoicethH5970 in the LORDH3068, mine hornH7161 is exaltedH7311 in the LORDH3068: my mouthH6310 is enlargedH7337 over mine enemiesH341; because I rejoiceH8055 in thy salvationH3444. 2There is none holyH6918 as the LORDH3068: for there is none besideH1115 thee: neither is there any rockH6697 like our GodH430. 3TalkH1696 no moreH7235 so exceedingH1364 proudlyH1364; let not arrogancyH6277 comeH3318 out of your mouthH6310: for the LORDH3068 is a GodH410 of knowledgeH1844, and by him actionsH5949 are weighedH8505. / arrogancy: Heb. hard 4The bowsH7198 of the mighty menH1368 are brokenH2844, and they that stumbledH3782 are girdedH247 with strengthH2428. 5They that were fullH7649 have hired outH7936 themselves for breadH3899; and they that were hungryH7457 ceasedH2308: so that the barrenH6135 hath bornH3205 sevenH7651; and she that hath manyH7227 childrenH1121 is waxed feebleH535. 6The LORDH3068 killethH4191, and maketh aliveH2421: he bringeth downH3381 to the graveH7585, and bringeth upH5927. 7The LORDH3068 maketh poorH3423, and maketh richH6238: he bringeth lowH8213, andH637 lifteth upH7311. 8He raiseth upH6965 the poorH1800 out of the dustH6083, and lifteth upH7311 the beggarH34 from the dunghillH830, to setH3427 them among princesH5081, and to make them inheritH5157 the throneH3678 of gloryH3519: for the pillarsH4690 of the earthH776 are the LORD'SH3068, and he hath setH7896 the worldH8398 upon them. 9He will keepH8104 the feetH7272 of his saintsH2623, and the wickedH7563 shall be silentH1826 in darknessH2822; for by strengthH3581 shall no manH376 prevailH1396. 10The adversariesH7378 of the LORDH3068 shall be broken to piecesH2865; out of heavenH8064 shall he thunderH7481 upon them: the LORDH3068 shall judgeH1777 the endsH657 of the earthH776; and he shall giveH5414 strengthH5797 unto his kingH4428, and exaltH7311 the hornH7161 of his anointedH4899. 11And ElkanahH511 wentH3212 to RamahH7414 to his houseH1004. And the childH5288 didH1961 ministerH8334 unto the LORDH3068 beforeH6440 EliH5941 the priestH3548.

The Wicked Sons of Eli

12Now the sonsH1121 of EliH5941 were sonsH1121 of BelialH1100; they knewH3045 not the LORDH3068. 13And the priests'H3548 customH4941 with the peopleH5971 was, that, when any manH376 offeredH2076 sacrificeH2077, the priest'sH3548 servantH5288 cameH935, while the fleshH1320 was in seethingH1310, with a fleshhookH4207 of threeH7969 teethH8127 in his handH3027; 14And he struckH5221 it into the panH3595, or kettleH1731, or caldronH7037, or potH6517; all that the fleshhookH4207 brought upH5927 the priestH3548 tookH3947 for himself. So they didH6213 in ShilohH7887 unto all the IsraelitesH3478 that cameH935 thither. 15Also before they burntH6999 the fatH2459, the priest'sH3548 servantH5288 cameH935, and saidH559 to the manH376 that sacrificedH2076, GiveH5414 fleshH1320 to roastH6740 for the priestH3548; for he will not haveH3947 soddenH1310 fleshH1320 of thee, but rawH2416. 16And if any manH376 saidH559 unto him, Let them not failH6999 to burnH6999 the fatH2459 presentlyH3117, and then takeH3947 as much as thy soulH5315 desirethH183; then he would answerH559 him, Nay; but thou shalt giveH5414 it me now: and if not, I will takeH3947 it by forceH2394. / presently: Heb. as on the day 17Wherefore the sinH2403 of the young menH5288 was veryH3966 greatH1419 beforeH6440 the LORDH3068: for menH582 abhorredH5006 the offeringH4503 of the LORDH3068.

Samuel’s Childhood Ministry

18But SamuelH8050 ministeredH8334 beforeH6440 the LORDH3068, being a childH5288, girdedH2296 with a linenH906 ephodH646. 19Moreover his motherH517 madeH6213 him a littleH6996 coatH4598, and broughtH5927 it to him from yearH3117 to yearH3117, when she came upH5927 with her husbandH376 to offerH2076 the yearlyH3117 sacrificeH2077. 20And EliH5941 blessedH1288 ElkanahH511 and his wifeH802, and saidH559, The LORDH3068 giveH7760 thee seedH2233 of this womanH802 for the loanH7596 which is lentH7592 to the LORDH3068. And they wentH1980 unto their own homeH4725. / loan…: or, petition which she asked, etc 21AndH3588 the LORDH3068 visitedH6485 HannahH2584, so that she conceivedH2029, and bareH3205 threeH7969 sonsH1121 and twoH8147 daughtersH1323. And the childH5288 SamuelH8050 grewH1431 beforeH5973 the LORDH3068.

Prophecy Against Eli’s Household

22Now EliH5941 was veryH3966 oldH2204, and heardH8085 all that his sonsH1121 didH6213 unto all IsraelH3478; and how they layH7901 with the womenH802 that assembledH6633 at the doorH6607 of the tabernacleH168 of the congregationH4150. / assembled: Heb. assembled by troops 23And he saidH559 unto them, Why doH6213 ye such thingsH1697? for I hearH8085 of your evilH7451 dealingsH1697 by all this peopleH5971. / of your…: or, evil words of you 24Nay, my sonsH1121; for it is no goodH2896 reportH8052 that I hearH8085: ye make the LORD'SH3068 peopleH5971 to transgressH5674. / transgress: or, cry out 25If one manH376 sinH2398 against anotherH376, the judgeH430 shall judgeH6419 him: but if a manH376 sinH2398 against the LORDH3068, who shall intreatH6419 for him? Notwithstanding they hearkenedH8085 not unto the voiceH6963 of their fatherH1, because the LORDH3068 wouldH2654 slayH4191 them. 26And the childH5288 SamuelH8050 grewH1432 onH1980, and was in favourH2896 both with the LORDH3068, and also with menH582. 27And there cameH935 a manH376 of GodH430 unto EliH5941, and saidH559 unto him, Thus saithH559 the LORDH3068, Did I plainlyH1540 appearH1540 unto the houseH1004 of thy fatherH1, when they were in EgyptH4714 in Pharaoh'sH6547 houseH1004? 28And did I chooseH977 him out of all the tribesH7626 of IsraelH3478 to be my priestH3548, to offerH5927 upon mine altarH4196, to burnH6999 incenseH7004, to wearH5375 an ephodH646 beforeH6440 me? and did I giveH5414 unto the houseH1004 of thy fatherH1 all the offerings made by fireH801 of the childrenH1121 of IsraelH3478? 29Wherefore kickH1163 ye at my sacrificeH2077 and at mine offeringH4503, which I have commandedH6680 in my habitationH4583; and honourestH3513 thy sonsH1121 above me, to make yourselves fatH1254 with the chiefestH7225 of all the offeringsH4503 of IsraelH3478 my peopleH5971? 30Wherefore the LORDH3068 GodH430 of IsraelH3478 saithH5002, I saidH559 indeedH559 that thy houseH1004, and the houseH1004 of thy fatherH1, should walkH1980 beforeH6440 me forH5704 everH5769: but now the LORDH3068 saithH5002, Be it far from meH2486; for them that honourH3513 me I will honourH3513, and they that despiseH959 me shall be lightly esteemedH7043. 31Behold, the daysH3117 comeH935, that I will cut offH1438 thine armH2220, and the armH2220 of thy father'sH1 houseH1004, that there shall not be an old manH2205 in thine houseH1004. 32And thou shalt seeH5027 an enemyH6862 in my habitationH4583, in all the wealth which God shall giveH3190 IsraelH3478: and there shall not be an old manH2205 in thine houseH1004 for everH3117. / an enemy…: or, the affliction of the tabernacle, for all the wealth which God would have given Israel 33And the manH376 of thine, whom I shall not cut offH3772 from mine altarH4196, shall be to consumeH3615 thine eyesH5869, and to grieveH109 thine heartH5315: and all the increaseH4768 of thine houseH1004 shall dieH4191 in the flower of their ageH582. / in the flower…: Heb. men 34And this shall be a signH226 unto thee, that shall comeH935 upon thy twoH8147 sonsH1121, on HophniH2652 and PhinehasH6372; in oneH259 dayH3117 they shall dieH4191 bothH8147 of them. 35And I will raise me upH6965 a faithfulH539 priestH3548, that shall doH6213 according to that which is in mine heartH3824 and in my mindH5315: and I will buildH1129 him a sureH539 houseH1004; and he shall walkH1980 beforeH6440 mine anointedH4899 for everH3117. 36And it shall come to pass, that every one that is leftH3498 in thine houseH1004 shall comeH935 and crouchH7812 to him for a pieceH95 of silverH3701 and a morselH3603 of breadH3899, and shall sayH559, PutH5596 me, I pray thee, into oneH259 of the priests' officesH3550, that I may eatH398 a pieceH6595 of breadH3899. / Put: Heb. Join / one of…: or, somewhat about the priesthood
