Hannah’s Prayer

2And Hannah prayed, and said, My heart rejoiceth in the LORD, mine horn is exalted in the LORD: my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies; because I rejoice in thy salvation.H2584H6419H559H3820H5970H3068H7161H7311H3068H6310H7337H341H8055H3444 2There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.H6918H3068H1115H6697H430 3Talk no more so exceeding proudly; let not arrogancy come out of your mouth: for the LORD is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed.H1696H7235H1364H1364H6277H3318H6310H3068H410H1844H5949H8505 4The bows of the mighty men are broken, and they that stumbled are girded with strength.H7198H1368H2844H3782H247H2428 5They that were full have hired out themselves for bread; and they that were hungry ceased: so that the barren hath born seven; and she that hath many children is waxed feeble.H7649H7936H3899H7457H2308H6135H3205H7651H7227H1121H535 6The LORD killeth, and maketh alive: he bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up.H3068H4191H2421H3381H7585H5927 7The LORD maketh poor, and maketh rich: he bringeth low, and lifteth up.H3068H3423H6238H8213H637H7311 8He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD's, and he hath set the world upon them.H6965H1800H6083H7311H34H830H3427H5081H5157H3678H3519H4690H776H3068H7896H8398 9He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail.H8104H7272H2623H7563H1826H2822H3581H376H1396 10The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall he thunder upon them: the LORD shall judge the ends of the earth; and he shall give strength unto his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed.H7378H3068H2865H8064H7481H3068H1777H657H776H5414H5797H4428H7311H7161H4899 11And Elkanah went to Ramah to his house. And the child did minister unto the LORD before Eli the priest.H511H3212H7414H1004H5288H1961H8334H3068H6440H5941H3548

The Wicked Sons of Eli

12Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not the LORD.H1121H5941H1121H1100H3045H3068 13And the priest's custom with the people was, that, when any man offered sacrifice, the priest's servant came, while the flesh was in seething, with a fleshhook of three teeth in his hand;H3548H4941H5971H376H2076H2077H3548H5288H935H1320H1310H4207H7969H8127H3027 14And he struck it into the pan, or kettle, or caldron, or pot; all that the fleshhook brought up the priest took for himself. So they did in Shiloh unto all the Israelites that came thither.H5221H3595H1731H7037H6517H4207H5927H3548H3947H6213H7887H3478H935 15Also before they burnt the fat, the priest's servant came, and said to the man that sacrificed, Give flesh to roast for the priest; for he will not have sodden flesh of thee, but raw.H6999H2459H3548H5288H935H559H376H2076H5414H1320H6740H3548H3947H1310H1320H2416 16And if any man said unto him, Let them not fail to burn the fat presently, and then take as much as thy soul desireth; then he would answer him, Nay; but thou shalt give it me now: and if not, I will take it by force.H376H559H6999H6999H2459H3117H3947H5315H183H559H5414H3947H2394 17Wherefore the sin of the young men was very great before the LORD: for men abhorred the offering of the LORD.H2403H5288H3966H1419H6440H3068H582H5006H4503H3068

Samuel’s Childhood Ministry

18But Samuel ministered before the LORD, being a child, girded with a linen ephod.H8050H8334H6440H3068H5288H2296H906H646 19Moreover his mother made him a little coat, and brought it to him from year to year, when she came up with her husband to offer the yearly sacrifice.H517H6213H6996H4598H5927H3117H3117H5927H376H2076H3117H2077 20And Eli blessed Elkanah and his wife, and said, The LORD give thee seed of this woman for the loan which is lent to the LORD. And they went unto their own home.H5941H1288H511H802H559H3068H7760H2233H802H7596H7592H3068H1980H4725 21And the LORD visited Hannah, so that she conceived, and bare three sons and two daughters. And the child Samuel grew before the LORD.H3588H3068H6485H2584H2029H3205H7969H1121H8147H1323H5288H8050H1431H5973H3068

Prophecy Against Eli’s Household

22Now Eli was very old, and heard all that his sons did unto all Israel; and how they lay with the women that assembled at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.H5941H3966H2204H8085H1121H6213H3478H7901H802H6633H6607H168H4150 23And he said unto them, Why do ye such things? for I hear of your evil dealings by all this people.H559H6213H1697H8085H7451H1697H5971 24Nay, my sons; for it is no good report that I hear: ye make the LORD's people to transgress.H1121H2896H8052H8085H3068H5971H5674 25If one man sin against another, the judge shall judge him: but if a man sin against the LORD, who shall intreat for him? Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto the voice of their father, because the LORD would slay them.H376H2398H376H430H6419H376H2398H3068H6419H8085H6963H1H3068H2654H4191 26And the child Samuel grew on, and was in favour both with the LORD, and also with men.H5288H8050H1432H1980H2896H3068H582 27And there came a man of God unto Eli, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Did I plainly appear unto the house of thy father, when they were in Egypt in Pharaoh's house?H935H376H430H5941H559H559H3068H1540H1540H1004H1H4714H6547H1004 28And did I choose him out of all the tribes of Israel to be my priest, to offer upon mine altar, to burn incense, to wear an ephod before me? and did I give unto the house of thy father all the offerings made by fire of the children of Israel?H977H7626H3478H3548H5927H4196H6999H7004H5375H646H6440H5414H1004H1H801H1121H3478 29Wherefore kick ye at my sacrifice and at mine offering, which I have commanded in my habitation; and honourest thy sons above me, to make yourselves fat with the chiefest of all the offerings of Israel my people?H1163H2077H4503H6680H4583H3513H1121H1254H7225H4503H3478H5971 30Wherefore the LORD God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the LORD saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.H3068H430H3478H5002H559H559H1004H1004H1H1980H6440H5704H5769H3068H5002H2486H3513H3513H959H7043 31Behold, the days come, that I will cut off thine arm, and the arm of thy father's house, that there shall not be an old man in thine house.H3117H935H1438H2220H2220H1H1004H2205H1004 32And thou shalt see an enemy in my habitation, in all the wealth which God shall give Israel: and there shall not be an old man in thine house for ever.H5027H6862H4583H3190H3478H2205H1004H3117 33And the man of thine, whom I shall not cut off from mine altar, shall be to consume thine eyes, and to grieve thine heart: and all the increase of thine house shall die in the flower of their age.H376H3772H4196H3615H5869H109H5315H4768H1004H4191H582 34And this shall be a sign unto thee, that shall come upon thy two sons, on Hophni and Phinehas; in one day they shall die both of them.H226H935H8147H1121H2652H6372H259H3117H4191H8147 35And I will raise me up a faithful priest, that shall do according to that which is in mine heart and in my mind: and I will build him a sure house; and he shall walk before mine anointed for ever.H6965H539H3548H6213H3824H5315H1129H539H1004H1980H6440H4899H3117 36And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left in thine house shall come and crouch to him for a piece of silver and a morsel of bread, and shall say, Put me, I pray thee, into one of the priests' offices, that I may eat a piece of bread.H3498H1004H935H7812H95H3701H3603H3899H559H5596H259H3550H398H6595H3899
