1 H259 Now there was a certain H376 man H7436 of Ramathaim Zophim, H2022 of the hill H669 country of Ephraim, H8034 and his name H511 was Elkanah, H1121 the son H3395 of Jeroham, H1121 the son H453 of Elihu, H1121 the son H8459 of Tohu, H1121 the son H6689 of Zuph, H673 an Ephraimite:
2 H8147 and he had two H802 wives; H8034 the name H259 of the one H2584 was Hannah, H8034 and the name H8145 of other H6444 Peninnah: H6444 and Peninnah H3206 had children, H2584 but Hannah H3206 had no children.
3 H1931 This H376 man H5927 went up H5892 out of his city H3117 from year to year H7812 to worship H2076 and to sacrifice H3068 to Yahweh H6635 of Armies H7887 in Shiloh. H8147 The two H1121 sons H5941 of Eli, H2652 Hophni H6372 and Phinehas, H3548 priests H3068 to Yahweh, were there.
4 H3117 When the day H511 came that Elkanah H2076 sacrificed, H5414 he gave H6444 to Peninnah H802 his wife, H1121 and to all her sons H1323 and her daughters, H4490 portions:
5 H2584 but to Hannah H5414 he gave H259 a H639 double H4490 portion; H157 for he loved H2584 Hannah, H3068 but Yahweh H5462 had shut up H7358 her womb.
6 H6869 Her rival H3707 provoked H3708 her severely, H7481 to make her fret, H3068 because Yahweh H5462 had shut H1157 up H7358 her womb.
7 H6213 As he did H8141 so year H8141 by year, H1767 when H5927 she went up H1004 to the house H3068 of Yahweh, H3707 so she provoked H1058 her; therefore she wept, H398 and didn't eat.
8 H511 Elkanah H376 her husband H559 said H2584 to her, "Hannah, H1058 why do you weep? H398 Why don't you eat? H3824 Why is your heart H3415 grieved? H2896 Am I not better H6235 to you than ten H1121 sons?"
9 H2584 So Hannah H6965 rose up H310 after H398 they had eaten H7887 in Shiloh, H310 and after H8354 they had drunk. H5941 Now Eli H3548 the priest H3427 was sitting H3678 on his seat H4201 by the doorpost H1964 of the temple H3068 of Yahweh.
10 H4751 She was in bitterness H5315 of soul, H6419 and prayed H3068 to Yahweh, H1058 and wept H1058 bitterly.
11 H5087 She vowed H5088 a vow, H559 and said, H3068 "Yahweh H6635 of Armies, H7200 if you will indeed H7200 look H6040 on the affliction H519 of your handmaid, H2142 and remember H7911 me, and not forget H519 your handmaid, H5414 but will give H519 to your handmaid H582 a H2233 boy, H5414 then I will give H3068 him to Yahweh H3117 all the days H2416 of his life, H4177 and no razor H5927 shall come H7218 on his head."
12 H7235 It happened, as she continued H6419 praying H6440 before H3068 Yahweh, H5941 that Eli H5941 saw H6310 her mouth.
13 H2584 Now Hannah H1696 spoke H3820 in her heart. H8193 Only her lips H5128 moved, H6963 but her voice H8085 was not heard. H5941 Therefore Eli H2803 thought H7910 she had been drunken.
14 H5941 Eli H559 said H7937 to her, "How long will you be drunken? H5493 Put away H3196 your wine from you."
15 H2584 Hannah H6030 answered, H113 "No, my lord, H802 I am a woman H7186 of a sorrowful H7307 spirit. H8354 I have drunk H3196 neither wine H7941 nor strong drink, H8210 but I poured out H5315 my soul H6440 before H3068 Yahweh.
16 H5414 Don't count H519 your handmaid H6440 for H1100 a wicked H1323 woman; H1696 for I have been speaking H7230 out of the abundance H7879 of my complaint H3708 and my provocation."
17 H5941 Then Eli H6030 answered, H3212 "Go H7965 in peace; H3212 and may the God H3478 of Israel H5414 grant H7596 your petition H7592 that you have asked of him."
18 H559 She said, H8198 "Let your handmaid H4672 find H2580 favor H5869 in your sight." H802 So the woman H3212 went H1870 her way, H398 and ate; H6440 and her facial expression wasn't sad any more.
19 H7925 They rose up H1242 in the morning H7925 early, H7812 and worshiped H6440 before H3068 Yahweh, H7725 and returned, H935 and came H1004 to their house H7414 to Ramah: H511 and Elkanah H3045 knew H2584 Hannah H802 his wife; H3068 and Yahweh H2142 remembered her.
20 H3117 It happened, when the time H8622 had come, H2584 that Hannah H2029 conceived, H3205 and bore H1121 a son; H7121 and she named H8034 him H8050 Samuel, H7592 saying, "Because I have asked H3068 him of Yahweh."
21 H376 The man H511 Elkanah, H1004 and all his house, H5927 went up H2076 to offer H3068 to Yahweh H3117 the yearly H2076 sacrifice, H5088 and his vow.
22 H2584 But Hannah H5927 didn't go up; H559 for she said H376 to her husband, H5288 "Not until the child H1580 is weaned; H935 then I will bring H7200 him, that he may appear H6440 before H3068 Yahweh, H3427 and stay H5704 there H5769 forever."
23 H511 Elkanah H376 her husband H559 said H6213 to her, "Do H5869 what seems H2896 good H3427 to you. Wait H1580 until you have weaned H3068 him; only may Yahweh H6965 establish H1697 his word." H802 So the woman H3427 waited H3243 and nursed H1121 her son, H1580 until she weaned him.
24 H1580 When she had weaned H5927 him, she took him up H7969 with her, with three H6499 bulls, H259 and one H374 ephah H7058 of meal, H5035 and a bottle H3196 of wine, H935 and brought H3068 him to Yahweh's H1004 house H7887 in Shiloh. H5288 The child H5288 was young.
26 H559 She said, H994 "Oh, H113 my lord, H5315 as your soul H2416 lives, H113 my lord, H802 I am the woman H5324 who stood H6419 by you here, praying H3068 to Yahweh.
27 H5288 For this child H6419 I prayed; H3068 and Yahweh H5414 has given H7596 me my petition H7592 which I asked of him.
