1 H2584 And Hannah H6419 prayed [H8691] H559 , and said [H8799] H3820 , My heart H5970 rejoiceth [H8804] H3068 in the LORD H7161 , mine horn H7311 is exalted [H8804] H3068 in the LORD H6310 : my mouth H7337 is enlarged [H8804] H341 over mine enemies [H8802] H8055 ; because I rejoice [H8804] H3444 in thy salvation.
2 H6918 There is none holy H3068 as the LORD H1115 : for there is none beside H6697 thee: neither is there any rock H430 like our God.
3 H1696 Talk [H8762] H7235 no more [H8686] H1364 so exceeding H1364 proudly H6277 ; let not arrogancy H3318 come [H8799] H6310 out of your mouth H3068 : for the LORD H410 is a God H1844 of knowledge H5949 , and by him actions H8505 are weighed [H8738] .
4 H7198 The bows H1368 of the mighty men H2844 are broken H3782 , and they that stumbled [H8737] H247 are girded [H8804] H2428 with strength.
5 H7649 They that were full H7936 have hired out [H8738] H3899 themselves for bread H7457 ; and they that were hungry H2308 ceased [H8804] H6135 : so that the barren H3205 hath born [H8804] H7651 seven H7227 ; and she that hath many H1121 children H535 is waxed feeble [H8797] .
6 H3068 The LORD H4191 killeth [H8688] H2421 , and maketh alive [H8764] H3381 : he bringeth down [H8688] H7585 to the grave H5927 , and bringeth up [H8686] .
7 H3068 The LORD H3423 maketh poor [H8688] H6238 , and maketh rich [H8688] H8213 : he bringeth low [H8688] H637 , and H7311 lifteth up [H8789] .
8 H6965 He raiseth up [H8688] H1800 the poor H6083 out of the dust H7311 , and lifteth up [H8686] H34 the beggar H830 from the dunghill H3427 , to set [H8687] H5081 them among princes H5157 , and to make them inherit [H8686] H3678 the throne H3519 of glory H4690 : for the pillars H776 of the earth H3068 are the LORD'S H7896 , and he hath set [H8799] H8398 the world upon them.
9 H8104 He will keep [H8799] H7272 the feet H2623 of his saints H7563 , and the wicked H1826 shall be silent [H8735] H2822 in darkness H3581 ; for by strength H376 shall no man H1396 prevail [H8799] .
10 H7378 The adversaries [H8688] H3068 of the LORD H2865 shall be broken to pieces [H8735] H8064 ; out of heaven H7481 shall he thunder [H8686] H3068 upon them: the LORD H1777 shall judge [H8799] H657 the ends H776 of the earth H5414 ; and he shall give [H8799] H5797 strength H4428 unto his king H7311 , and exalt [H8686] H7161 the horn H4899 of his anointed.
11 H511 And Elkanah H3212 went [H8799] H7414 to Ramah H1004 to his house H5288 . And the child H1961 did [H8804] H8334 minister [H8764] 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 [H8804] H3068 not the LORD.
13 H3548 And the priests H4941 ' custom H5971 with the people H376 was, that, when any man H2076 offered [H8802] H2077 sacrifice H3548 , the priest's H5288 servant H935 came [H8804] H1320 , while the flesh H1310 was in seething [H8763] H4207 , with a fleshhook H7969 of three H8127 teeth H3027 in his hand;
14 H5221 And he struck [H8689] H3595 it into the pan H1731 , or kettle H7037 , or caldron H6517 , or pot H4207 ; all that the fleshhook H5927 brought up [H8686] H3548 the priest H3947 took [H8799] H6213 for himself. So they did [H8799] H7887 in Shiloh H3478 unto all the Israelites H935 that came [H8802] thither.
15 H6999 Also before they burnt [H8686] H2459 the fat H3548 , the priest's H5288 servant H935 came [H8804] H559 , and said [H8804] H376 to the man H2076 that sacrificed [H8802] H5414 , Give [H8798] H1320 flesh H6740 to roast [H8800] H3548 for the priest H3947 ; for he will not have [H8799] H1310 sodden [H8794] H1320 flesh H2416 of thee, but raw.
16 H376 And if any man H559 said [H8799] H6999 unto him, Let them not fail [H8686] H6999 to burn [H8763] H2459 the fat H3117 presently H3947 , and then take [H8798] H5315 as much as thy soul H183 desireth [H8762] H559 ; then he would answer [H8804] H5414 him, Nay; but thou shalt give [H8799] H3947 it me now: and if not, I will take [H8804] H2394 it by force.
17 H2403 Wherefore the sin H5288 of the young men H3966 was very H1419 great H6440 before H3068 the LORD H582 : for men H5006 abhorred [H8765] H4503 the offering H3068 of the LORD.
18 H8050 But Samuel H8334 ministered [H8764] H6440 before H3068 the LORD H5288 , being a child H2296 , girded [H8803] H906 with a linen H646 ephod.
19 H517 Moreover his mother H6213 made [H8799] H6996 him a little H4598 coat H5927 , and brought [H8689] H3117 it to him from year H3117 to year H5927 , when she came up [H8800] H376 with her husband H2076 to offer [H8800] H3117 the yearly H2077 sacrifice.
20 H5941 And Eli H1288 blessed [H8765] H511 Elkanah H802 and his wife H559 , and said [H8804] H3068 , The LORD H7760 give [H8799] H2233 thee seed H802 of this woman H7596 for the loan H7592 which is lent [H8804] H3068 to the LORD H1980 . And they went [H8804] H4725 unto their own home.
21 H3588 And H3068 the LORD H6485 visited [H8804] H2584 Hannah H2029 , so that she conceived [H8799] H3205 , and bare [H8799] H7969 three H1121 sons H8147 and two H1323 daughters H5288 . And the child H8050 Samuel H1431 grew [H8799] H5973 before H3068 the LORD.
22 H5941 Now Eli H3966 was very H2204 old [H8804] H8085 , and heard [H8804] H1121 all that his sons H6213 did [H8799] H3478 unto all Israel H7901 ; and how they lay [H8799] H802 with the women H6633 that assembled [H8802] H6607 at the door H168 of the tabernacle H4150 of the congregation.
23 H559 And he said [H8799] H6213 unto them, Why do [H8799] H1697 ye such things H8085 ? for I hear [H8802] H7451 of your evil H1697 dealings H5971 by all this people.
24 H1121 Nay, my sons H2896 ; for it is no good H8052 report H8085 that I hear [H8802] H3068 : ye make the LORD'S H5971 people H5674 to transgress [H8688] .
25 H376 If one man H2398 sin [H8799] H376 against another H430 , the judge H6419 shall judge [H8765] H376 him: but if a man H2398 sin [H8799] H3068 against the LORD H6419 , who shall intreat [H8691] H8085 for him? Notwithstanding they hearkened [H8799] H6963 not unto the voice H1 of their father H3068 , because the LORD H2654 would [H8804] H4191 slay [H8687] them.
26 H5288 And the child H8050 Samuel H1432 grew H1980 on [H8802] H2896 , and was in favour H3068 both with the LORD H582 , and also with men.
27 H935 And there came [H8799] H376 a man H430 of God H5941 unto Eli H559 , and said [H8799] H559 unto him, Thus saith [H8804] H3068 the LORD H1540 , Did I plainly [H8736] H1540 appear [H8738] H1004 unto the house H1 of thy father H4714 , when they were in Egypt H6547 in Pharaoh's H1004 house?
28 H977 And did I choose [H8800] H7626 him out of all the tribes H3478 of Israel H3548 to be my priest H5927 , to offer [H8800] H4196 upon mine altar H6999 , to burn [H8687] H7004 incense H5375 , to wear [H8800] H646 an ephod H6440 before H5414 me? and did I give [H8799] H1004 unto the house H1 of thy father H801 all the offerings made by fire H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel?
29 H1163 Wherefore kick [H8799] H2077 ye at my sacrifice H4503 and at mine offering H6680 , which I have commanded [H8765] H4583 in my habitation H3513 ; and honourest [H8762] H1121 thy sons H1254 above me, to make yourselves fat [H8687] H7225 with the chiefest H4503 of all the offerings H3478 of Israel H5971 my people?
30 H3068 Wherefore the LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel H5002 saith [H8803] H559 , I said [H8804] H559 indeed [H8800] H1004 that thy house H1004 , and the house H1 of thy father H1980 , should walk [H8691] H6440 before H5704 me for H5769 ever H3068 : but now the LORD H5002 saith [H8803] H2486 , Be it far from me H3513 ; for them that honour [H8764] H3513 me I will honour [H8762] H959 , and they that despise [H8802] H7043 me shall be lightly esteemed [H8799] .
31 H3117 Behold, the days H935 come [H8802] H1438 , that I will cut off [H8804] 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 thine house.
32 H5027 And thou shalt see [H8689] H6862 an enemy H4583 in my habitation H3190 , in all the wealth which God shall give [H8686] H3478 Israel H2205 : and there shall not be an old man H1004 in thine house H3117 for ever.
33 H376 And the man H3772 of thine, whom I shall not cut off [H8686] H4196 from mine altar H3615 , shall be to consume [H8763] H5869 thine eyes H109 , and to grieve H5315 thine heart H4768 : and all the increase H1004 of thine house H4191 shall die [H8799] H582 in the flower of their age.
34 H226 And this shall be a sign H935 unto thee, that shall come [H8799] H8147 upon thy two H1121 sons H2652 , on Hophni H6372 and Phinehas H259 ; in one H3117 day H4191 they shall die [H8799] H8147 both of them.
35 H6965 And I will raise me up [H8689] H539 a faithful [H8737] H3548 priest H6213 , that shall do [H8799] H3824 according to that which is in mine heart H5315 and in my mind H1129 : and I will build [H8804] H539 him a sure [H8737] H1004 house H1980 ; and he shall walk [H8694] H6440 before H4899 mine anointed H3117 for ever.
36 H3498 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left [H8737] H1004 in thine house H935 shall come [H8799] H7812 and crouch [H8692] H95 to him for a piece H3701 of silver H3603 and a morsel H3899 of bread H559 , and shall say [H8804] H5596 , Put [H8798] H259 me, I pray thee, into one H3550 of the priests' offices H398 , that I may eat [H8800] H6595 a piece H3899 of bread.
