2:1 And Hannah [H2584] prayed [H6419] , and said [H559] , My heart [H3820] rejoiceth [H5970] in the LORD [H3068] , mine horn [H7161] is exalted [H7311] in the LORD [H3068] : my mouth [H6310] is enlarged [H7337] over mine enemies [H341] ; because I rejoice [H8055] in thy salvation [H3444] .
2:2 [There is] none holy [H6918] as the LORD [H3068] : for [there is] none beside [H1115] thee: neither [is there] any rock [H6697] like our God [H430] .
2:3 Talk [H1696] no more [H7235] so exceeding [H1364] proudly [H1364] ; let [not] arrogancy [H6277] come [H3318] out of your mouth [H6310] : for the LORD [H3068] [is] a God [H410] of knowledge [H1844] , and by him actions [H5949] are weighed [H8505] .(arrogancy: Heb. hard)
2:4 The bows [H7198] of the mighty men [H1368] [are] broken [H2844] , and they that stumbled [H3782] are girded [H247] with strength [H2428] .
2:5 [They that were] full [H7649] have hired out [H7936] themselves for bread [H3899] ; and [they that were] hungry [H7457] ceased [H2308] : so that the barren [H6135] hath born [H3205] seven [H7651] ; and she that hath many [H7227] children [H1121] is waxed feeble [H535] .
2:6 The LORD [H3068] killeth [H4191] , and maketh alive [H2421] : he bringeth down [H3381] to the grave [H7585] , and bringeth up [H5927] .
2:7 The LORD [H3068] maketh poor [H3423] , and maketh rich [H6238] : he bringeth low [H8213] , and [H637] lifteth up [H7311] .
2:8 He raiseth up [H6965] the poor [H1800] out of the dust [H6083] , [and] lifteth up [H7311] the beggar [H34] from the dunghill [H830] , to set [H3427] [them] among princes [H5081] , and to make them inherit [H5157] the throne [H3678] of glory [H3519] : for the pillars [H4690] of the earth [H776] [are] the LORD'S [H3068] , and he hath set [H7896] the world [H8398] upon them.
2:9 He will keep [H8104] the feet [H7272] of his saints [H2623] , and the wicked [H7563] shall be silent [H1826] in darkness [H2822] ; for by strength [H3581] shall no man [H376] prevail [H1396] .
2:10 The adversaries [H7378] of the LORD [H3068] shall be broken to pieces [H2865] ; out of heaven [H8064] shall he thunder [H7481] upon them: the LORD [H3068] shall judge [H1777] the ends [H657] of the earth [H776] ; and he shall give [H5414] strength [H5797] unto his king [H4428] , and exalt [H7311] the horn [H7161] of his anointed [H4899] .
2:11 And Elkanah [H511] went [H3212] to Ramah [H7414] to his house [H1004] . And the child [H5288] did [H1961] minister [H8334] unto the LORD [H3068] before [H6440] Eli [H5941] the priest [H3548] .
2:12 Now the sons [H1121] of Eli [H5941] [were] sons [H1121] of Belial [H1100] ; they knew [H3045] not the LORD [H3068] .
2:13 And the priests' [H3548] custom [H4941] with the people [H5971] [was, that], when any man [H376] offered [H2076] sacrifice [H2077] , the priest's [H3548] servant [H5288] came [H935] , while the flesh [H1320] was in seething [H1310] , with a fleshhook [H4207] of three [H7969] teeth [H8127] in his hand [H3027] ;
2:14 And he struck [H5221] [it] into the pan [H3595] , or kettle [H1731] , or caldron [H7037] , or pot [H6517] ; all that the fleshhook [H4207] brought up [H5927] the priest [H3548] took [H3947] for himself. So they did [H6213] in Shiloh [H7887] unto all the Israelites [H3478] that came [H935] thither.
2:15 Also before they burnt [H6999] the fat [H2459] , the priest's [H3548] servant [H5288] came [H935] , and said [H559] to the man [H376] that sacrificed [H2076] , Give [H5414] flesh [H1320] to roast [H6740] for the priest [H3548] ; for he will not have [H3947] sodden [H1310] flesh [H1320] of thee, but raw [H2416] .
2:16 And [if] any man [H376] said [H559] unto him, Let them not fail [H6999] to burn [H6999] the fat [H2459] presently [H3117] , and [then] take [H3947] [as much] as thy soul [H5315] desireth [H183] ; then he would answer [H559] him, [Nay]; but thou shalt give [H5414] [it me] now: and if not, I will take [H3947] [it] by force [H2394] .(presently: Heb. as on the day)
2:17 Wherefore the sin [H2403] of the young men [H5288] was very [H3966] great [H1419] before [H6440] the LORD [H3068] : for men [H582] abhorred [H5006] the offering [H4503] of the LORD [H3068] .
2:18 But Samuel [H8050] ministered [H8334] before [H6440] the LORD [H3068] , [being] a child [H5288] , girded [H2296] with a linen [H906] ephod [H646] .
2:19 Moreover his mother [H517] made [H6213] him a little [H6996] coat [H4598] , and brought [H5927] [it] to him from year [H3117] to year [H3117] , when she came up [H5927] with her husband [H376] to offer [H2076] the yearly [H3117] sacrifice [H2077] .
2:20 And Eli [H5941] blessed [H1288] Elkanah [H511] and his wife [H802] , and said [H559] , The LORD [H3068] give [H7760] thee seed [H2233] of this woman [H802] for the loan [H7596] which is lent [H7592] to the LORD [H3068] . And they went [H1980] unto their own home [H4725] .(loan: or, petition which she asked, etc)
2:21 And [H3588] the LORD [H3068] visited [H6485] Hannah [H2584] , so that she conceived [H2029] , and bare [H3205] three [H7969] sons [H1121] and two [H8147] daughters [H1323] . And the child [H5288] Samuel [H8050] grew [H1431] before [H5973] the LORD [H3068] .
2:22 Now Eli [H5941] was very [H3966] old [H2204] , and heard [H8085] all that his sons [H1121] did [H6213] unto all Israel [H3478] ; and how they lay [H7901] with the women [H802] that assembled [H6633] [at] the door [H6607] of the tabernacle [H168] of the congregation [H4150] .(assembled: Heb. assembled by troops)
2:23 And he said [H559] unto them, Why do [H6213] ye such things [H1697] ? for I hear [H8085] of your evil [H7451] dealings [H1697] by all this people [H5971] .(of your: or, evil words of you)
2:24 Nay, my sons [H1121] ; for [it is] no good [H2896] report [H8052] that I hear [H8085] : ye make the LORD'S [H3068] people [H5971] to transgress [H5674] .(transgress: or, cry out)
2:25 If one man [H376] sin [H2398] against another [H376] , the judge [H430] shall judge [H6419] him: but if a man [H376] sin [H2398] against the LORD [H3068] , who shall intreat [H6419] for him? Notwithstanding they hearkened [H8085] not unto the voice [H6963] of their father [H1] , because the LORD [H3068] would [H2654] slay [H4191] them.
2:26 And the child [H5288] Samuel [H8050] grew [H1432] on [H1980] , and was in favour [H2896] both with the LORD [H3068] , and also with men [H582] .
2:27 And there came [H935] a man [H376] of God [H430] unto Eli [H5941] , and said [H559] unto him, Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , Did I plainly [H1540] appear [H1540] unto the house [H1004] of thy father [H1] , when they were in Egypt [H4714] in Pharaoh's [H6547] house [H1004] ?
2:28 And did I choose [H977] him out of all the tribes [H7626] of Israel [H3478] [to be] my priest [H3548] , to offer [H5927] upon mine altar [H4196] , to burn [H6999] incense [H7004] , to wear [H5375] an ephod [H646] before [H6440] me? and did I give [H5414] unto the house [H1004] of thy father [H1] all the offerings made by fire [H801] of the children [H1121] of Israel [H3478] ?
2:29 Wherefore kick [H1163] ye at my sacrifice [H2077] and at mine offering [H4503] , which I have commanded [H6680] [in my] habitation [H4583] ; and honourest [H3513] thy sons [H1121] above me, to make yourselves fat [H1254] with the chiefest [H7225] of all the offerings [H4503] of Israel [H3478] my people [H5971] ?
2:30 Wherefore the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of Israel [H3478] saith [H5002] , I said [H559] indeed [H559] [that] thy house [H1004] , and the house [H1004] of thy father [H1] , should walk [H1980] before [H6440] me for [H5704] ever [H5769] : but now the LORD [H3068] saith [H5002] , Be it far from me [H2486] ; for them that honour [H3513] me I will honour [H3513] , and they that despise [H959] me shall be lightly esteemed [H7043] .
2:31 Behold, the days [H3117] come [H935] , that I will cut off [H1438] thine arm [H2220] , and the arm [H2220] of thy father's [H1] house [H1004] , that there shall not be an old man [H2205] in thine house [H1004] .
2:32 And thou shalt see [H5027] an enemy [H6862] [in my] habitation [H4583] , in all [the wealth] which [God] shall give [H3190] Israel [H3478] : and there shall not be an old man [H2205] in thine house [H1004] for ever [H3117] .(an enemy: or, the affliction of the tabernacle, for all the wealth which God would have given Israel)
2:33 And the man [H376] of thine, [whom] I shall not cut off [H3772] from mine altar [H4196] , [shall be] to consume [H3615] thine eyes [H5869] , and to grieve [H109] thine heart [H5315] : and all the increase [H4768] of thine house [H1004] shall die [H4191] in the flower of their age [H582] .(in the flower: Heb. men)
2:34 And this [shall be] a sign [H226] unto thee, that shall come [H935] upon thy two [H8147] sons [H1121] , on Hophni [H2652] and Phinehas [H6372] ; in one [H259] day [H3117] they shall die [H4191] both [H8147] of them.
2:35 And I will raise me up [H6965] a faithful [H539] priest [H3548] , [that] shall do [H6213] according to [that] which [is] in mine heart [H3824] and in my mind [H5315] : and I will build [H1129] him a sure [H539] house [H1004] ; and he shall walk [H1980] before [H6440] mine anointed [H4899] for ever [H3117] .
2:36 And it shall come to pass, [that] every one that is left [H3498] in thine house [H1004] shall come [H935] [and] crouch [H7812] to him for a piece [H95] of silver [H3701] and a morsel [H3603] of bread [H3899] , and shall say [H559] , Put [H5596] me, I pray thee, into one [H259] of the priests' offices [H3550] , that I may eat [H398] a piece [H6595] of bread [H3899] .(Put: Heb. Join)(one of: or, somewhat about the priesthood)
