1:1 Now there was a certain [H259] man [H376] of Ramathaimzophim [H7436] , of mount [H2022] Ephraim [H669] , and his name [H8034] [was] Elkanah [H511] , the son [H1121] of Jeroham [H3395] , the son [H1121] of Elihu [H453] , the son [H1121] of Tohu [H8459] , the son [H1121] of Zuph [H6689] , an Ephrathite [H673] :
1:2 And he had two [H8147] wives [H802] ; the name [H8034] of the one [H259] [was] Hannah [H2584] , and the name [H8034] of the other [H8145] Peninnah [H6444] : and Peninnah [H6444] had children [H3206] , but Hannah [H2584] had no children [H3206] .
1:3 And this [H1931] man [H376] went up [H5927] out of his city [H5892] yearly [H3117] [H3117] to worship [H7812] and to sacrifice [H2076] unto the LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] in Shiloh [H7887] . And the two [H8147] sons [H1121] of Eli [H5941] , Hophni [H2652] and Phinehas [H6372] , the priests [H3548] of the LORD [H3068] , [were] there.(yearly: Heb. from year to year)
1:4 And when the time [H3117] was that Elkanah [H511] offered [H2076] , he gave [H5414] to Peninnah [H6444] his wife [H802] , and to all her sons [H1121] and her daughters [H1323] , portions [H4490] :
1:5 But unto Hannah [H2584] he gave [H5414] a [H259] worthy [H639] portion [H4490] ; for he loved [H157] Hannah [H2584] : but the LORD [H3068] had shut up [H5462] her womb [H7358] .(worthy: or, double)
1:6 And her adversary [H6869] also provoked [H3707] her sore [H3708] , for to make her fret [H7481] , because the LORD [H3068] had shut [H5462] up [H1157] her womb [H7358] .(provoked: Heb. angered)
1:7 And [as] he did [H6213] so year [H8141] by year [H8141] , when [H1767] she went up [H5927] to the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] , so she provoked [H3707] her; therefore she wept [H1058] , and did not eat [H398] .(when: or, from the time that she, etc: Heb. from her going up)
1:8 Then said [H559] Elkanah [H511] her husband [H376] to her, Hannah [H2584] , why weepest [H1058] thou? and why eatest [H398] thou not? and why is thy heart [H3824] grieved [H3415] ? [am] not I better [H2896] to thee than ten [H6235] sons [H1121] ?
1:9 So Hannah [H2584] rose up [H6965] after [H310] they had eaten [H398] in Shiloh [H7887] , and after [H310] they had drunk [H8354] . Now Eli [H5941] the priest [H3548] sat [H3427] upon a seat [H3678] by a post [H4201] of the temple [H1964] of the LORD [H3068] .
1:10 And she [was] in bitterness [H4751] of soul [H5315] , and prayed [H6419] unto the LORD [H3068] , and wept [H1058] sore [H1058] .(in: Heb. bitter of soul)
1:11 And she vowed [H5087] a vow [H5088] , and said [H559] , O LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] , if thou wilt indeed [H7200] look [H7200] on the affliction [H6040] of thine handmaid [H519] , and remember [H2142] me, and not forget [H7911] thine handmaid [H519] , but wilt give [H5414] unto thine handmaid [H519] a man [H582] child [H2233] , then I will give [H5414] him unto the LORD [H3068] all the days [H3117] of his life [H2416] , and there shall no razor [H4177] come [H5927] upon his head [H7218] .(a man: Heb. seed of men)
1:12 And it came to pass, as she continued [H7235] praying [H6419] before [H6440] the LORD [H3068] , that Eli [H5941] marked [H8104] her mouth [H6310] .(continued: Heb. multiplied to pray)
1:13 Now Hannah [H2584] , she spake [H1696] in her heart [H3820] ; only her lips [H8193] moved [H5128] , but her voice [H6963] was not heard [H8085] : therefore Eli [H5941] thought [H2803] she had been drunken [H7910] .
1:14 And Eli [H5941] said [H559] unto her, How long wilt thou be drunken [H7937] ? put away [H5493] thy wine [H3196] from thee.
1:15 And Hannah [H2584] answered [H6030] and said [H559] , No, my lord [H113] , I [am] a woman [H802] of a sorrowful [H7186] spirit [H7307] : I have drunk [H8354] neither wine [H3196] nor strong drink [H7941] , but have poured out [H8210] my soul [H5315] before [H6440] the LORD [H3068] .(of a sorrowful: Heb. hard of spirit)
1:16 Count [H5414] not thine handmaid [H519] for [H6440] a daughter [H1323] of Belial [H1100] : for out of the abundance [H7230] of my complaint [H7879] and grief [H3708] have I spoken [H1696] hitherto.(complaint: or, meditation)
1:17 Then Eli [H5941] answered [H6030] and said [H559] , Go [H3212] in peace [H7965] : and the God [H430] of Israel [H3478] grant [H5414] [thee] thy petition [H7596] that thou hast asked [H7592] of him.
1:18 And she said [H559] , Let thine handmaid [H8198] find [H4672] grace [H2580] in thy sight [H5869] . So the woman [H802] went [H3212] her way [H1870] , and did eat [H398] , and her countenance [H6440] was no more [sad].
1:19 And they rose up [H7925] in the morning [H1242] early [H7925] , and worshipped [H7812] before [H6440] the LORD [H3068] , and returned [H7725] , and came [H935] to their house [H1004] to Ramah [H7414] : and Elkanah [H511] knew [H3045] Hannah [H2584] his wife [H802] ; and the LORD [H3068] remembered [H2142] her.
1:20 Wherefore it came to pass, when the time [H3117] was come [H8622] about after Hannah [H2584] had conceived [H2029] , that she bare [H3205] a son [H1121] , and called [H7121] his name [H8034] Samuel [H8050] , [saying], Because I have asked [H7592] him of the LORD [H3068] .(when: Heb. in revolution of days)(Samuel: that is, Asked of God)
1:21 And the man [H376] Elkanah [H511] , and all his house [H1004] , went up [H5927] to offer [H2076] unto the LORD [H3068] the yearly [H3117] sacrifice [H2077] , and his vow [H5088] .
1:22 But Hannah [H2584] went not up [H5927] ; for she said [H559] unto her husband [H376] , [I will not go up] until the child [H5288] be weaned [H1580] , and [then] I will bring [H935] him, that he may appear [H7200] before [H6440] the LORD [H3068] , and there abide [H3427] for [H5704] ever [H5769] .
1:23 And Elkanah [H511] her husband [H376] said [H559] unto her, Do [H6213] what seemeth [H5869] thee good [H2896] ; tarry [H3427] until thou have weaned [H1580] him; only the LORD [H3068] establish [H6965] his word [H1697] . So the woman [H802] abode [H3427] , and gave her son [H1121] suck [H3243] until she weaned [H1580] him.
1:24 And when she had weaned [H1580] him, she took him up [H5927] with her, with three [H7969] bullocks [H6499] , and one [H259] ephah [H374] of flour [H7058] , and a bottle [H5035] of wine [H3196] , and brought [H935] him unto the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] in Shiloh [H7887] : and the child [H5288] [was] young [H5288] .
1:25 And they slew [H7819] a bullock [H6499] , and brought [H935] the child [H5288] to Eli [H5941] .
1:26 And she said [H559] , Oh [H994] my lord [H113] , [as] thy soul [H5315] liveth [H2416] , my lord [H113] , I [am] the woman [H802] that stood [H5324] by thee here, praying [H6419] unto the LORD [H3068] .
1:27 For this child [H5288] I prayed [H6419] ; and the LORD [H3068] hath given [H5414] me my petition [H7596] which I asked [H7592] of him:
1:28 Therefore also I have lent [H7592] him to the LORD [H3068] ; as long as he liveth [H3117] he shall be lent [H7592] to the LORD [H3068] . And he worshipped [H7812] the LORD [H3068] there.(lent him: or, returned him, whom I have obtained by petition)(he shall: or, he whom I have obtained by petition shall be returned)
