And HannahH2584 prayed,H6419 and said,H559 My heartH3820 rejoicesH5970 in the LORD,H3068 my hornH7161 is exaltedH7311 in the LORD:H3068 my mouthH6310 is enlargedH7337 overH5921 my enemies;H341 becauseH3588 I rejoiceH8055 in your salvation.H3444
There is noneH369 holyH6918 as the LORD:H3068 for there is noneH369 besideH1115 you: neitherH369 is there any rockH6697 like our God.H430
TalkH1696 noH408 moreH7235 so exceeding proudly;H1364 let not arroganceH6277 comeH3318 out of your mouth:H6310 for the LORDH3068 is a GodH410 of knowledge,H1844 and by him actionsH5949 are weighed.H8505
The bowsH7198 of the mightyH1368 men are broken,H2844 and they that stumbledH3782 are girdedH247 with strength.H2428
They that were fullH7646 have hiredH7936 out themselves for bread;H3899 and they that were hungryH7456 ceased:H2308 soH5704 that the barrenH6135 has bornH3205 seven;H7651 and she that has manyH7227 childrenH1121 is waxed feeble.H535
The LORDH3068 kills,H4191 and makes alive:H2421 he bringsH3381 downH3381 to the grave,H7585 and bringsH5927 up.
The LORDH3068 makes poor,H3423 and makes rich:H6238 he bringsH8213 low,H8213 and liftsH7311 up.
He raisesH6965 up the poorH1800 out of the dust,H6083 and liftsH7311 up the beggarH34 from the dunghill,H830 to setH3427 them amongH5973 princes,H5081 and to make them inheritH5157 the throneH3678 of glory:H3519 for the pillarsH4690 of the earthH776 are the LORD's,H3068 and he has setH7896 the worldH8398 on them.
He will keepH8104 the feetH7272 of his saints,H2623 and the wickedH7563 shall be silentH1826 in darkness;H2822 for by strengthH3581 shall noH3808 manH376 prevail.H1396
The adversariesH7378 of the LORDH3068 shall be brokenH2865 to pieces; out of heavenH8064 shall he thunderH7481 on them: the LORDH3068 shall judgeH1777 the endsH657 of the earth;H776 and he shall giveH5414 strengthH5797 to his king,H4428 and exaltH7311 the hornH7161 of his anointed.H4899
And ElkanahH511 wentH3212 to RamahH7414 to his house.H1004 And the childH5288 didH1961 ministerH8334 to the LORDH3068 beforeH854 H6440 EliH5941 the priest.H3548
Now the sonsH1121 of EliH5941 were sonsH1121 of Belial;H1100 they knewH3045 not the LORD.H3068
And the priest'sH3548 customH4941 with the peopleH5971 was, that, when anyH3605 manH376 offeredH2076 sacrifice,H2077 the priest'sH3548 servantH5288 came,H935 while the fleshH1320 was in seething,H1310 with a meat hookH4207 of threeH7969 teethH8127 in his hand;H3027
And he struckH5221 it into the pan,H3595 orH176 kettle,H1731 orH176 caldron,H7037 orH176 pot;H6517 allH3605 that the meat hookH4207 broughtH5927 up the priestH3548 tookH3947 for himself. SoH3602 they didH6213 in Shiloh H7887to allH3605 the IsraelitesH3478 that cameH935 thither.H8033
AlsoH1571 beforeH2962 they burntH6999 the fat,H2459 the priest'sH3548 servantH5288 came,H935 and saidH559 to the manH376 that sacrificed,H2076 GiveH5414 fleshH1320 to roastH6740 for the priest;H3548 for he will not haveH3947 soddenH1310 fleshH1320 of you, but raw.H2416
And if any manH376 saidH559 to him, Let them not fail to burnH6999 the fatH2459 presently,H3117 and then takeH3947 as much as your soulH5315 desires;H8378 then he would answerH559 him, No; but you shall giveH5414 it me now:H3588 H6258 and ifH518 not, I will takeH3947 it by force.H2394
Why the sinH2403 of the youngH5288 men was veryH3966 greatH1419 beforeH854 H6440 the LORD:H3068 for menH582 abhorredH5006 the offeringH4503 of the LORD.H3068
But SamuelH8050 ministeredH8334 beforeH854 H6440 the LORD,H3068 being a child,H5288 girdedH2296 with a linenH906 ephod.H646
Moreover his motherH517 madeH6213 him a littleH6996 coat,H4598 and broughtH5927 it to him from yearH3117 to year,H3117 when she cameH5927 up with her husbandH376 to offerH2076 the yearlyH3117 sacrifice.H2077
And EliH5941 blessedH1288 ElkanahH511 and his wife,H802 and said,H559 The LORDH3068 giveH7760 you seedH2233 of thisH2063 womanH802 for the loanH7596 whichH834 is lentH7592 to the LORD.H3068 And they wentH1980 to their own home.H4725
And the LORDH3068 visitedH6485 Hannah,H2584 so that she conceived,H2029 and boreH3205 threeH7969 sonsH1121 and twoH8147 daughters.H1323 And the childH5288 SamuelH8050 grewH1431 beforeH5973 the LORD.H3068
Now EliH5941 was veryH3966 old,H2204 and heardH8085 allH3605 that his sonsH1121 didH6213 to allH3605 Israel;H3478 and howH854 H834 they layH7901 with the womenH802 that assembledH6633 at the doorH6607 of the tabernacleH168 of the congregation.H4150
And he saidH559 to them, WhyH4100 doH6213 you suchH428 things?H1697 for I hearH8085 of your evilH7451 dealingsH1697 by allH3605 thisH428 people.H5971
No,H408 my sons;H1121 for it is noH3808 goodH2896 reportH8052 that I hear:H8085 you make the LORD'sH3068 peopleH5971 to transgress.H5674
IfH518 one manH376 sinH2398 against another,H376 the judgeH430 shall judgeH6419 him: but ifH518 a manH376 sinH2398 against the LORD,H3068 whoH4310 shall entreatH6419 for him? Notwithstanding they listenedH8085 not to the voiceH6963 of their father,H1 becauseH3588 the LORDH3068 wouldH2654 slayH4191 them.
And the childH5288 SamuelH8050 grewH1432 on, and was in favorH2896 bothH1571 with the LORD,H3068 and alsoH1571 with men.H582
And there cameH935 a manH376 of GodH430 to Eli,H5941 and saidH559 to him, ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORD,H3068 Did I plainlyH1540 appearH1540 to the houseH1004 of your father,H1 when they were in EgyptH4714 in Pharaoh'sH6547 house?H1004
And did I chooseH977 him out of allH3605 the tribesH7626 of IsraelH3478 to be my priest,H3548 to offerH5927 on my altar,H4196 to burnH6999 incense,H7004 to wearH5375 an ephodH646 beforeH6440 me? and did I giveH5414 to the houseH1004 of your fatherH1 allH3605 the offerings made by fire of the childrenH1121 of Israel?H3478
WhyH4100 kickH1163 you at my sacrificeH2077 and at my offering,H4503 whichH834 I have commandedH6680 in my habitation;H4583 and honorH3513 your sonsH1121 above me, to make yourselves fatH1254 with the most chiefH7225 of allH3605 the offeringsH4503 of IsraelH3478 my people?H5971
WhyH3651 the LORDH3068 GodH430 of IsraelH3478 said,H5002 I saidH559 indeed that your house,H1004 and the houseH1004 of your father,H1 should walkH1980 beforeH6440 me for ever:H5769 but nowH6258 the LORDH3068 said,H5002 Be it farH2486 from me; for them that honorH3513 me I will honor,H3513 and they that despiseH959 me shall be lightlyH7043 esteemed.H7043
Behold,H2009 the daysH3117 come,H935 that I will cutH1438 off your arm,H2220 and the armH2220 of your father'sH1 house,H1004 that there shall not be an oldH2205 man in your house.H1004
And you shall seeH5027 an enemyH6862 in my habitation,H4583 in allH3605 the wealth whichH834 God shall giveH3190 Israel:H3478 and there shall not be an oldH2205 man in your houseH1004 for ever.H3605 H3117
And the manH376 of yours, whom I shall not cutH3772 off from my altar,H4196 shall be to consumeH3615 your eyes,H5869 and to grieveH109 your heart:H5315 and allH3605 the increaseH4768 of your houseH1004 shall dieH4191 in the flowerH582 of their age.H582
And thisH2088 shall be a signH226 to you, that shall comeH935 on your twoH8147 sons,H1121 onH413 HophniH2652 and Phinehas;H6372 in oneH259 dayH3117 they shall dieH4191 bothH8147 of them.
And I will raiseH6965 me up a faithfulH539 priest,H3548 that shall doH6213 according to that whichH834 is in my heartH3824 and in my mind:H5315 and I will buildH1129 him a sureH539 house;H1004 and he shall walkH1980 beforeH6440 my anointedH4899 for ever.H3605 H3117
And it shall comeH1961 to pass, that everyH3605 one that is leftH3498 in your houseH1004 shall comeH935 and crouchH7812 to him for a pieceH95 of silverH3701 and a morselH3603 of bread,H3899 and shall say,H559 PutH5596 me, I prayH4994 you, intoH413 oneH259 of the priests'H3550 offices, that I may eatH398 a pieceH6595 of bread.H3899
