And the childH5288 SamuelH8050 ministeredH8334 to the LORDH3068 beforeH6440 Eli.H5941 And the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 was preciousH3368 in thoseH1992 days;H3117 there was noH369 openH6555 vision.H2377
And it cameH1961 to pass at that time,H3117 when EliH5941 was laidH7901 downH7901 in his place,H4725 and his eyesH5869 beganH2490 to wax dim,H3544 that he couldH3201 not see;H7200
And ereH2962 the lampH5216 of GodH430 wentH3518 out in the templeH1964 of the LORD,H3068 whereH834 H8033 the arkH727 of GodH430 was, and SamuelH8050 was laidH7901 downH7901 to sleep;
That the LORDH3068 calledH7121 Samuel:H8050 and he answered,H559 HereH2009 am I.
And he ranH7323 to Eli,H5941 and said,H559 HereH2005 am I; for you calledH7121 me. And he said,H559 I calledH7121 not; lieH7901 downH7901 again.H7725 And he wentH3212 and layH7901 down.H7901
And the LORDH3068 calledH7121 yetH5750 again,H3254 Samuel.H8050 And SamuelH8050 aroseH6965 and wentH3212 to Eli,H5941 and said,H559 HereH2005 am I; for you did callH7121 me. And he answered,H559 I calledH7121 not, my son;H1121 lieH7901 downH7901 again.H7725
Now SamuelH8050 did not yetH2962 knowH3045 the LORD,H3068 neither was the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 yetH2962 revealedH1540 to him.
And the LORDH3068 calledH7121 SamuelH8050 againH3254 the thirdH7992 time. And he aroseH6965 and wentH3212 to Eli,H5941 and said,H559 HereH2005 am I; for you did callH7121 me. And EliH5941 perceivedH995 that the LORDH3068 had calledH7121 the child.H5288
Therefore EliH5941 saidH559 to Samuel,H8050 Go,H3212 lieH7901 down:H7901 and it shall be, ifH518 he callH7121 you, that you shall say,H559 Speak,H1696 LORD;H3068 for your servantH5650 hears.H8085 So SamuelH8050 wentH3212 and layH7901 downH7901 in his place.H4725
And the LORDH3068 came,H935 and stood,H3320 and calledH7121 as at other times,H6471 Samuel,H8050 Samuel.H8050 Then SamuelH8050 answered,H559 Speak;H1696 for your servantH5650 hears.H8085
And the LORDH3068 saidH559 to Samuel,H8050 Behold,H2009 I will doH6213 a thingH1697 in Israel,H3478 at whichH834 bothH8147 the earsH241 of everyH3605 one that hearsH8085 it shall tingle.H6750
In that dayH3117 I will performH6965 againstH413 EliH5941 allH3605 things whichH834 I have spokenH1696 concerningH413 his house:H1004 when I begin,H2490 I will also make an end.H3615
For I have toldH5046 him that I will judgeH8199 his houseH1004 for everH5769 for the iniquityH5771 whichH834 he knows;H3045 becauseH3588 his sonsH1121 made themselvesH1992 vile,H7043 and he restrainedH3543 them not.
And therefore I have swornH7650 to the houseH1004 of Eli,H5941 that the iniquityH5771 of Eli'sH5941 houseH1004 shall not be purgedH3722 with sacrificeH2077 nor offeringH4503 for ever.H5769
And SamuelH8050 layH7901 untilH5704 the morning,H1242 and openedH6605 the doorsH1817 of the houseH1004 of the LORD.H3068 And SamuelH8050 fearedH3372 to showH5046 EliH5941 the vision.H4758
Then EliH5941 calledH7121 Samuel,H8050 and said,H559 Samuel,H8050 my son.H1121 And he answered,H559 HereH2009 am I.
And he said,H559 WhatH4100 is the thingH1697 that the LORD has saidH1696 to you? I prayH4994 you hideH3582 it not from me: GodH430 doH6213 soH3541 to you, and moreH3254 also,H3541 ifH518 you hideH3582 any thingH1697 from me of allH3605 the things that he saidH1696 to you.
And SamuelH8050 toldH5046 him everyH3605 whit,H1697 and hidH3582 nothingH3808 from him. And he said,H559 It is the LORD:H3068 let him doH6213 what seemsH5869 him good.H2896
And SamuelH8050 grew,H1431 and the LORDH3068 was with him, and did let noneH3808 of his wordsH1697 fallH5307 to the ground.H776
And allH3605 IsraelH3478 from DanH1835 even to BeershebaH884 knewH3045 that SamuelH8050 was establishedH539 to be a prophetH5030 of the LORD.H3068
And the LORDH3068 appearedH7200 againH3254 in Shiloh:H7887 for the LORDH3068 revealedH1540 himself to SamuelH8050 in ShilohH7887 by the wordH1697 of the LORD.H3068
