1 Samuel 2

  1 H2584 And Hannah H6419 prayed, H559 and said, H3820 My heart H5970 rejoices H3068 in the LORD, H7161 my horn H7311 is exalted H3068 in the LORD: H6310 my mouth H7337 is enlarged H5921 over H341 my enemies; H3588 because H8055 I rejoice H3444 in your salvation.
  2 H369 There is none H6918 holy H3068 as the LORD: H369 for there is none H1115 beside H369 you: neither H6697 is there any rock H430 like our God.
  3 H1696 Talk H408 no H7235 more H1364 so exceeding proudly; H6277 let not arrogance H3318 come H6310 out of your mouth: H3068 for the LORD H410 is a God H1844 of knowledge, H5949 and by him actions H8505 are weighed.
  4 H7198 The bows H1368 of the mighty H2844 men are broken, H3782 and they that stumbled H247 are girded H2428 with strength.
  5 H7646 They that were full H7936 have hired H3899 out themselves for bread; H7456 and they that were hungry H2308 ceased: H5704 so H6135 that the barren H3205 has born H7651 seven; H7227 and she that has many H1121 children H535 is waxed feeble.
  6 H3068 The LORD H4191 kills, H2421 and makes alive: H3381 he brings H3381 down H7585 to the grave, H5927 and brings up.
  7 H3068 The LORD H3423 makes poor, H6238 and makes rich: H8213 he brings H8213 low, H7311 and lifts up.
  8 H6965 He raises H1800 up the poor H6083 out of the dust, H7311 and lifts H34 up the beggar H830 from the dunghill, H3427 to set H5973 them among H5081 princes, H5157 and to make them inherit H3678 the throne H3519 of glory: H4690 for the pillars H776 of the earth H3068 are the LORD’s, H7896 and he has set H8398 the world on them.
  9 H8104 He will keep H7272 the feet H2623 of his saints, H7563 and the wicked H1826 shall be silent H2822 in darkness; H3581 for by strength H3808 shall no H376 man H1396 prevail.
  10 H7378 The adversaries H3068 of the LORD H2865 shall be broken H8064 to pieces; out of heaven H7481 shall he thunder H3068 on them: the LORD H1777 shall judge H657 the ends H776 of the earth; H5414 and he shall give H5797 strength H4428 to his king, H7311 and exalt H7161 the horn H4899 of his anointed.
  11 H511 And Elkanah H3212 went H7414 to Ramah H1004 to his house. H5288 And the child H1961 did H8334 minister H3068 to the LORD H854 before H6440 H5941 Eli H3548 the priest.
  12 H1121 Now the sons H5941 of Eli H1121 were sons H1100 of Belial; H3045 they knew H3068 not the LORD.
  13 H3548 And the priest’s H4941 custom H5971 with the people H3605 was, that, when any H376 man H2076 offered H2077 sacrifice, H3548 the priest’s H5288 servant H935 came, H1320 while the flesh H1310 was in seething, H4207 with a meat hook H7969 of three H8127 teeth H3027 in his hand;
  14 H5221 And he struck H3595 it into the pan, H176 or H1731 kettle, H176 or H7037 caldron, H176 or H6517 pot; H3605 all H4207 that the meat hook H5927 brought H3548 up the priest H3947 took H3602 for himself. So H6213 they did H7887 in Shiloh H3605 to all H3478 the Israelites H935 that came H8033 thither.
  15 H1571 Also H2962 before H6999 they burnt H2459 the fat, H3548 the priest’s H5288 servant H935 came, H559 and said H376 to the man H2076 that sacrificed, H5414 Give H1320 flesh H6740 to roast H3548 for the priest; H3947 for he will not have H1310 sodden H1320 flesh H2416 of you, but raw.
  16 H376 And if any man H559 said H6999 to him, Let them not fail to burn H2459 the fat H3117 presently, H3947 and then take H5315 as much as your soul H8378 desires; H559 then he would answer H5414 him, No; but you shall give H3588 it me now: H6258 H518 and if H3947 not, I will take H2394 it by force.
  17 H2403 Why the sin H5288 of the young H3966 men was very H1419 great H854 before H6440 H3068 the LORD: H582 for men H5006 abhorred H4503 the offering H3068 of the LORD.
  18 H8050 But Samuel H8334 ministered H854 before H6440 H3068 the LORD, H5288 being a child, H2296 girded H906 with a linen H646 ephod.
  19 H517 Moreover his mother H6213 made H6996 him a little H4598 coat, H5927 and brought H3117 it to him from year H3117 to year, H5927 when she came H376 up with her husband H2076 to offer H3117 the yearly H2077 sacrifice.
  20 H5941 And Eli H1288 blessed H511 Elkanah H802 and his wife, H559 and said, H3068 The LORD H7760 give H2233 you seed H2063 of this H802 woman H7596 for the loan H834 which H7592 is lent H3068 to the LORD. H1980 And they went H4725 to their own home.
  21 H3068 And the LORD H6485 visited H2584 Hannah, H2029 so that she conceived, H3205 and bore H7969 three H1121 sons H8147 and two H1323 daughters. H5288 And the child H8050 Samuel H1431 grew H5973 before H3068 the LORD.
  22 H5941 Now Eli H3966 was very H2204 old, H8085 and heard H3605 all H1121 that his sons H6213 did H3605 to all H3478 Israel; H854 and how H834 H7901 they lay H802 with the women H6633 that assembled H6607 at the door H168 of the tabernacle H4150 of the congregation.
  23 H559 And he said H4100 to them, Why H6213 do H428 you such H1697 things? H8085 for I hear H7451 of your evil H1697 dealings H3605 by all H428 this H5971 people.
  24 H408 No, H1121 my sons; H3808 for it is no H2896 good H8052 report H8085 that I hear: H3068 you make the LORD’s H5971 people H5674 to transgress.
  25 H518 If H376 one man H2398 sin H376 against another, H430 the judge H6419 shall judge H518 him: but if H376 a man H2398 sin H3068 against the LORD, H4310 who H6419 shall entreat H8085 for him? Notwithstanding they listened H6963 not to the voice H1 of their father, H3588 because H3068 the LORD H2654 would H4191 slay them.
  26 H5288 And the child H8050 Samuel H1432 grew H2896 on, and was in favor H1571 both H3068 with the LORD, H1571 and also H582 with men.
  27 H935 And there came H376 a man H430 of God H5941 to Eli, H559 and said H3541 to him, Thus H559 said H3068 the LORD, H1540 Did I plainly H1540 appear H1004 to the house H1 of your father, H4714 when they were in Egypt H6547 in Pharaoh’s H1004 house?
  28 H977 And did I choose H3605 him out of all H7626 the tribes H3478 of Israel H3548 to be my priest, H5927 to offer H4196 on my altar, H6999 to burn H7004 incense, H5375 to wear H646 an ephod H6440 before H5414 me? and did I give H1004 to the house H1 of your father H3605 all H1121 the offerings made by fire of the children H3478 of Israel?
  29 H4100 Why H1163 kick H2077 you at my sacrifice H4503 and at my offering, H834 which H6680 I have commanded H4583 in my habitation; H3513 and honor H1121 your sons H1254 above me, to make yourselves fat H7225 with the most chief H3605 of all H4503 the offerings H3478 of Israel H5971 my people?
  30 H3651 Why H3068 the LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel H5002 said, H559 I said H1004 indeed that your house, H1004 and the house H1 of your father, H1980 should walk H6440 before H5769 me for ever: H6258 but now H3068 the LORD H5002 said, H2486 Be it far H3513 from me; for them that honor H3513 me I will honor, H959 and they that despise H7043 me shall be lightly H7043 esteemed.
  31 H2009 Behold, H3117 the days H935 come, H1438 that I will cut H2220 off your arm, H2220 and the arm H1 of your father’s H1004 house, H2205 that there shall not be an old H1004 man in your house.
  32 H5027 And you shall see H6862 an enemy H4583 in my habitation, H3605 in all H834 the wealth which H3190 God shall give H3478 Israel: H2205 and there shall not be an old H1004 man in your house H3605 for ever. H3117
  33 H376 And the man H3772 of yours, whom I shall not cut H4196 off from my altar, H3615 shall be to consume H5869 your eyes, H109 and to grieve H5315 your heart: H3605 and all H4768 the increase H1004 of your house H4191 shall die H582 in the flower H582 of their age.
  34 H2088 And this H226 shall be a sign H935 to you, that shall come H8147 on your two H1121 sons, H413 on H2652 Hophni H6372 and Phinehas; H259 in one H3117 day H4191 they shall die H8147 both of them.
  35 H6965 And I will raise H539 me up a faithful H3548 priest, H6213 that shall do H834 according to that which H3824 is in my heart H5315 and in my mind: H1129 and I will build H539 him a sure H1004 house; H1980 and he shall walk H6440 before H4899 my anointed H3605 for ever. H3117
  36 H1961 And it shall come H3605 to pass, that every H3498 one that is left H1004 in your house H935 shall come H7812 and crouch H95 to him for a piece H3701 of silver H3603 and a morsel H3899 of bread, H559 and shall say, H5596 Put H4994 me, I pray H413 you, into H259 one H3550 of the priests’ H398 offices, that I may eat H6595 a piece H3899 of bread.
