1 Samuel 1:1-20

Now there was a certain
<0259>
man
<0376>
of Ramathaimzophim
<07436>_,
of mount
<02022>
Ephraim
<0669>_,
and his name
<08034>
[was] Elkanah
<0511>_,
the son
<01121>
of Jeroham
<03395>_,
the son
<01121>
of Elihu
<0453>_,
the son
<01121>
of Tohu
<08459>_,
the son
<01121>
of Zuph
<06689>_,
an Ephrathite
<0673>_:
And he had two
<08147>
wives
<0802>_;
the name
<08034>
of the one
<0259>
[was] Hannah
<02584>_,
and the name
<08034>
of the other
<08145>
Peninnah
<06444>_:
and Peninnah
<06444>
had children
<03206>_,
but Hannah
<02584>
had no children
<03206>_.
And this
<01931>
man
<0376>
went up
<05927> (8804)
out of his city
<05892>
yearly
<03117> <03117>
to worship
<07812> (8692)
and to sacrifice
<02076> (8800)
unto the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>
in Shiloh
<07887>_.
And the two
<08147>
sons
<01121>
of Eli
<05941>_,
Hophni
<02652>
and Phinehas
<06372>_,
the priests
<03548>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
[were] there. {yearly: Heb. from year to year}
And when the time
<03117>
was that Elkanah
<0511>
offered
<02076> (8799)_,
he gave
<05414> (8804)
to Peninnah
<06444>
his wife
<0802>_,
and to all her sons
<01121>
and her daughters
<01323>_,
portions
<04490>_:
But unto Hannah
<02584>
he gave
<05414> (8799)
a
<0259>
worthy
<0639>
portion
<04490>_;
for he loved
<0157> (8804)
Hannah
<02584>_:
but the LORD
<03068>
had shut up
<05462> (8804)
her womb
<07358>_.
{worthy: or, double}
And her adversary
<06869>
also provoked
<03707> (8765)
her sore
<03708>_,
for to make her fret
<07481> (8687)_,
because the LORD
<03068>
had shut
<05462> (8804)
up
<01157>
her womb
<07358>_.
{provoked: Heb. angered}
And [as] he did
<06213> (8799)
so year
<08141>
by year
<08141>_,
when
<01767>
she went up
<05927> (8800)
to the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
so she provoked
<03707> (8686)
her; therefore she wept
<01058> (8799)_,
and did not eat
<0398> (8799)_.
{when...: or, from the time that she, etc: Heb. from her going up}
Then said
<0559> (8799)
Elkanah
<0511>
her husband
<0376>
to her, Hannah
<02584>_,
why weepest
<01058> (8799)
thou? and why eatest
<0398> (8799)
thou not? and why is thy heart
<03824>
grieved
<03415> (8799)_?
[am] not I better
<02896>
to thee than ten
<06235>
sons
<01121>_?
So Hannah
<02584>
rose up
<06965> (8799)
after
<0310>
they had eaten
<0398> (8800)
in Shiloh
<07887>_,
and after
<0310>
they had drunk
<08354> (8800)_.
Now Eli
<05941>
the priest
<03548>
sat
<03427> (8802)
upon a seat
<03678>
by a post
<04201>
of the temple
<01964>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
And she [was] in bitterness
<04751>
of soul
<05315>_,
and prayed
<06419> (8691)
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
and wept
<01058> (8799)
sore
<01058> (8800)_.
{in...: Heb. bitter of soul}
And she vowed
<05087> (8799)
a vow
<05088>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
O LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
if thou wilt indeed
<07200> (8800)
look
<07200> (8799)
on the affliction
<06040>
of thine handmaid
<0519>_,
and remember
<02142> (8804)
me, and not forget
<07911> (8799)
thine handmaid
<0519>_,
but wilt give
<05414> (8804)
unto thine handmaid
<0519>
a man
<0582>
child
<02233>_,
then I will give
<05414> (8804)
him unto the LORD
<03068>
all the days
<03117>
of his life
<02416>_,
and there shall no razor
<04177>
come
<05927> (8799)
upon his head
<07218>_.
{a man...: Heb. seed of men}
And it came to pass, as she continued
<07235> (8689)
praying
<06419> (8692)
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_,
that Eli
<05941>
marked
<08104> (8802)
her mouth
<06310>_.
{continued...: Heb. multiplied to pray}
Now Hannah
<02584>_,
she spake
<01696> (8764)
in her heart
<03820>_;
only her lips
<08193>
moved
<05128> (8801)_,
but her voice
<06963>
was not heard
<08085> (8735)_:
therefore Eli
<05941>
thought
<02803> (8799)
she had been drunken
<07910>_.
And Eli
<05941>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto her, How long wilt thou be drunken
<07937> (8691)_?
put away
<05493> (8685)
thy wine
<03196>
from thee.
And Hannah
<02584>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
No, my lord
<0113>_,
I [am] a woman
<0802>
of a sorrowful
<07186>
spirit
<07307>_:
I have drunk
<08354> (8804)
neither wine
<03196>
nor strong drink
<07941>_,
but have poured out
<08210> (8799)
my soul
<05315>
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_.
{of a sorrowful...: Heb. hard of spirit}
Count
<05414> (8799)
not thine handmaid
<0519>
for
<06440>
a daughter
<01323>
of Belial
<01100>_:
for out of the abundance
<07230>
of my complaint
<07879>
and grief
<03708>
have I spoken
<01696> (8765)
hitherto. {complaint: or, meditation}
Then Eli
<05941>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Go
<03212> (8798)
in peace
<07965>_:
and the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>
grant
<05414> (8799)
[thee] thy petition
<07596>
that thou hast asked
<07592> (8804)
of him.
And she said
<0559> (8799)_,
Let thine handmaid
<08198>
find
<04672> (8799)
grace
<02580>
in thy sight
<05869>_.
So the woman
<0802>
went
<03212> (8799)
her way
<01870>_,
and did eat
<0398> (8799)_,
and her countenance
<06440>
was no more [sad].
And they rose up
<07925> (0)
in the morning
<01242>
early
<07925> (8686)_,
and worshipped
<07812> (8691)
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_,
and returned
<07725> (8799)_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
to their house
<01004>
to Ramah
<07414>_:
and Elkanah
<0511>
knew
<03045> (8799)
Hannah
<02584>
his wife
<0802>_;
and the LORD
<03068>
remembered
<02142> (8799)
her.
Wherefore it came to pass, when the time
<03117>
was come
<08622>
about after Hannah
<02584>
had conceived
<02029> (8799)_,
that she bare
<03205> (8799)
a son
<01121>_,
and called
<07121> (8799)
his name
<08034>
Samuel
<08050>_,
[saying], Because I have asked
<07592> (8804)
him of the LORD
<03068>_.
{when...: Heb. in revolution of days} {Samuel: that is, Asked of God}
