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