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 H341 over my enemies; H8055 because I rejoice H3444 in your salvation.
2 H6918 There is none holy H3068 as the Lord: H1115 for there is none beside H6697 you: neither is there any rock H430 like our God.
3 H1696 Talk H7235 no more H1364 so exceedingly H1364 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 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 are full: H6135 so that the childless H3205 has born H7651 seven; H7227 and she that has many H1121 sons H535 is now feeble.
6 H3068 The Lord H4191 kills, H2421 and makes alive: H3381 he brings down H7585 to the grave, H5927 and brings up.
7 H3068 The Lord H3423 makes poor, H6238 and makes rich: H8213 he brings low, H637 and H7311 lifts up.
8 H6965 He raises up H1800 the poor H6083 out of the dust, H7311 and lifts up H34 the beggar H830 from the dunghill, H3427 to set H5081 them among 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 upon 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 H376 shall no man H1396 prevail.
10 H7378 The adversaries H3068 of the Lord H2865 shall be broken to pieces; H8064 out of heaven H7481 shall he thunder H3068 upon them: the Lord H1777 shall judge H657 the ends H776 of the earth; H5414 and he shall 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 the Lord H6440 before 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 priests' H4941 custom 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 in seething, H4207 with a fleshhook 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 fleshhook H5927 brought up H3548 the priest H3947 took H6213 for himself. So they did H7887 in Shiloh H3478 unto all the Israelites H935 that came there.
15 H6999 Also 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 you, but raw.
16 H376 And if any man H559 said H6999 unto him, Let them not fail H6999 to burn H2459 the fat H3117 presently, H3947 and then take H5315 as much as your soul H183 desires; H559 then he would answer H5414 him, No; but you shall 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 the Lord: H582 for men H5006 abhorred H4503 the offering H3068 of the Lord.
18 H8050 But Samuel H8334 ministered H6440 before 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 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 The Lord H7760 give H2233 you seed H802 of this woman H7596 for the loan H7592 which is lent H3068 to the Lord. H1980 And they went H4725 unto their own home.
21 H3588 And H3068 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 H1121 all that his sons H6213 did H3478 unto all Israel; H7901 and how 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 H6213 unto them, Why do H1697 you such things? H8085 for I hear H7451 of your evil H1697 dealings H5971 by all this people.
24 H1121 No, my sons; H2896 for it is no good H8052 report H8085 that I hear: H3068 you make the Lord's H5971 people H5674 to transgress.
25 H376 If one man H2398 sin H376 against another, H430 the judge H6419 shall judge H376 him: but if a man H2398 sin H3068 against the Lord, H6419 who shall entreat H8085 for him? Nevertheless they listened H6963 not unto the voice H1 of their father, H3068 because the Lord H2654 decided to H4191 kill them.
26 H5288 And the child H8050 Samuel H1432 grew H1980 on, H2896 and was in favor H3068 both with the Lord, 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 says H3068 the Lord, H1540 Did I plainly H1540 appear H1004 unto the house H1 of your father, H4714 when they were in Egypt H6547 in 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 offer H4196 upon my 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 your father H801 all the offerings made by fire H1121 of the sons H3478 of Israel?
29 H1163 Why kick H2077 you at my sacrifice H4503 and at my offering, H6680 which I have commanded H4583 in my habitation; H3513 and honor H1121 your sons H1254 above me, to make yourselves fat H7225 with the best H4503 of all the offerings H3478 of Israel H5971 my people?
30 H3068 Why the Lord H430 God H3478 of Israel H5002 says, H559 I said H559 indeed H1004 that your house, H1004 and the house H1 of your father, H1980 should walk H6440 before H5704 me for H5769 ever: H3068 but now the Lord H5002 says, 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 your arm, H2220 and the arm H1 of your father's H1004 house, H2205 that there shall not be an old man H1004 in your house.
32 H5027 And you shall see H6862 an enemy H4583 in my habitation, H3190 in all the wealth which God shall give H3478 Israel: H2205 and there shall not be an old man H1004 in your house H3117 for ever.
33 H376 And the man H3772 of your, whom I shall not cut off H4196 from my altar, H3615 shall be to consume H5869 your eyes, H109 and to grieve H5315 your heart: H4768 and all the increase H1004 of your house H4191 shall die H582 in the flower of their age.
34 H226 And this shall be a sign H935 unto you, that shall come H8147 upon your 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 my anointed H3117 for ever.
36 H3498 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left H1004 in your house H935 shall come H7812 and bow down H95 to him for a piece H3701 of silver H3603 and a morsel H3899 of bread, H559 and shall say, H5596 Put H259 me, I pray you, into one H3550 of the priests' offices, H398 that I may eat H6595 a piece H3899 of bread.
