1 Samuel 1:13-16

1:13 Now Hannah was speaking from her heart. Although her lips were moving, her voice was inaudible. Eli therefore thought she was drunk. 1:14 So he 1  said to her, “How often do you intend to get drunk? Put away your wine!”

1:15 But Hannah replied, “That’s not the way it is, 2  my lord! I am under a great deal of stress. 3  I have drunk neither wine nor beer. Rather, I have poured out my soul to 4  the Lord. 1:16 Don’t consider your servant a wicked woman, 5  for until now I have spoken from my deep pain and anguish.”

1 tn Heb “Eli.” The pronoun (“he”) has been used in the translation in keeping with contemporary English style.

2 tn Heb “No.”

3 tn Heb “I am a woman difficult of spirit.” The LXX has “for whom the day is difficult,” apparently mistaking the Hebrew word for “spirit” רוּחַ (ruakh) to be the word for “day” יוֹם (yom).

4 tn Heb “before.”

5 tn Heb “daughter of worthlessness.”
