1 Samuel 2

  1 H2584 Hannah H6419 prayed, H559 and said: H3820 "My heart H5970 exults H3068 in Yahweh! H7161 My horn H7311 is exalted H3068 in Yahweh. H6310 My mouth H7337 is enlarged H341 over my enemies, H8055 because I rejoice H3444 in your salvation.
  2 H6918 There is no one as holy H3068 as Yahweh, H1115 For there is no one besides H6697 you, nor is there any rock H430 like our God.
  3 H1696 "Talk H7235 no more H1364 so exceeding H1364 proudly. H6277 Don't let arrogance H3318 come H6310 out of your mouth, H3068 For Yahweh H410 is a God H1844 of knowledge. H5949 By him actions H8505 are weighed.
  4 H7198 "The bows H1368 of the mighty men H2844 are broken. H3782 Those who stumbled H247 are armed H2428 with strength.
  5 H7649 Those who were full H7936 have hired themselves out H3899 for bread. H7457 Those who were hungry H2308 are satisfied. H6135 Yes, the barren H3205 has borne H7651 seven. H7227 She who has many H1121 children H535 languishes.
  6 H3068 "Yahweh H4191 kills, H2421 and makes alive. H3381 He brings down H7585 to Sheol, H5927 and brings up.
  7 H3068 Yahweh H3423 makes poor, H6238 and makes rich. H8213 He brings low, H637 he also H7311 lifts up.
  8 H6965 He raises up H1800 the poor H6083 out of the dust. H7311 He lifts 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 Yahweh's. H7896 He has set H8398 the world on 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; H376 for no man H1396 shall prevail H3581 by strength.
  10 H7378 Those who strive H3068 with Yahweh H2865 shall be broken to pieces. H7481 He will thunder H8064 against them in the sky. H3068 "Yahweh H1777 will judge H657 the ends H776 of the earth. H5414 He will give H5797 strength H4428 to his king, H7311 and exalt H7161 the horn H4899 of his anointed."
  11 H511 Elkanah H3212 went H7414 to Ramah H1004 to his house. H5288 The child H1961   H8334 served H3068 Yahweh H6440 before H5941 Eli H3548 the priest.
  12 H1121 Now the sons H5941 of Eli H1100 were base H1121 men; H3045 they didn't know H3068 Yahweh.
  13 H4941 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 fork 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 fork H5927 brought up H3548 the priest H3947 took H6213 therewith. So they did H7887 in Shiloh H3478 to all the Israelites H935 who came there.
  15 H6999 Yes, before they burnt H2459 the fat, H3548 the priest's H5288 servant H935 came, H559 and said H376 to the man H2076 who sacrificed, H5414 "Give H1320 meat H6740 to roast H3548 for the priest; H3947 for he will not accept H1310 boiled H1320 meat H2416 from you, but raw."
  16 H376 If the man H559 said H6999 to him, "Let H2459 the fat H6999 be burned H3117 first, H3947 and then take H5315 as much as your soul H183 desires;" H559 then he would say, H5414 "No, but you shall give H3947 it to me now; and if not, I will take H2394 it by force."
  17 H2403 The sin H5288 of the young men H3966 was very H1419 great H6440 before H3068 Yahweh; H582 for the men H5006 despised H4503 the offering H3068 of Yahweh.
  18 H8050 But Samuel H8334 ministered H6440 before H3068 Yahweh, H5288 being a child, H2296 clothed 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 Eli H1288 blessed H511 Elkanah H802 and his wife, H559 and said, H3068 "Yahweh H7760 give H2233 you seed H802 of this woman H7596 for the petition H7592 which was asked H3068 of Yahweh." H1980 They went H4725 to their own home.
  21 H3068 Yahweh H6485 visited H2584 Hannah, H3588 and H2029 she conceived, H3205 and bore H7969 three H1121 sons H8147 and two H1323 daughters. H5288 The child H8050 Samuel H1431 grew H5973 before H3068 Yahweh.
  22 H5941 Now Eli H3966 was very H2204 old; H8085 and he heard H1121 all that his sons H6213 did H3478 to all Israel, H7901 and how that they lay H802 with the women H6633 who served H6607 at the door H168 of the Tent H4150 of Meeting.
  23 H559 He said H6213 to them, "Why do you do H1697 such things? H8085 for I hear H7451 of your evil H1697 dealings H5971 from all this people.
  24 H1121 No, my sons; H2896 for it is no good H8052 report H8085 that I hear: H3068 you make Yahweh's H5971 people H5674 disobey.
  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 Yahweh, H6419 who shall entreat H8085 for him?" Notwithstanding, they didn't listen H6963 to the voice H1 of their father, H3068 because Yahweh H2654 intended H4191 to kill them.
  26 H5288 The child H8050 Samuel H1432 grew H1980 on, H2896 and increased in favor H3068 both with Yahweh, H582 and also with men.
  27 H376 A man H430 of God H935 came H5941 to Eli, H559 and said H559 to him, "Thus says H3068 Yahweh, H1540 ‘Did I reveal H1540 myself H1004 to the house H1 of your father, H4714 when they were in Egypt H6547 in bondage to Pharaoh's H1004 house?
  28 H977 Did I choose H7626 him out of all the tribes H3478 of Israel H3548 to be my priest, H5927 to go H4196 up to my altar, H6999 to burn H7004 incense, H5375 to wear H646 an ephod H6440 before H5414 me? Did I give H1004 to the house H1 of your father H1121 all the offerings of the children H3478 of Israel H801 made by fire?
  29 H1163 Why do you kick H2077 at my sacrifice H2077 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 "Therefore Yahweh, H430 the God H3478 of Israel, H5002 says, H5002 ‘I said H559 indeed H1004 that your house, H1004 and the house H1 of your father, H1980 should walk H6440 before H5704 me H5769 forever.' H3068 But now Yahweh H5002 says, H2486 ‘Be it far from me; H3513 for those who honor H3513 me I will honor, H959 and those who 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 You shall see H6862 the affliction H4583 of my habitation, H3190 in all the wealth which I shall give H3478 Israel; H2205 and there shall not be an old man H1004 in your house H3117 forever.
  33 H376 The man H3772 of yours, whom I shall not cut off H4196 from my altar, H3615 shall consume H5869 your eyes, H109 and 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 "‘This shall be the sign H935 to you, that shall come H8147 on your two H1121 sons, H2652 on Hophni H6372 and Phinehas: H259 in one H3117 day H8147 they shall both H4191 die.
  35 H6965 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 I will build H539 him a sure H1004 house; H1980 and he shall walk H6440 before H4899 my anointed H3117 forever.
  36 H3498 It shall happen, that everyone who 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 loaf H3899 of bread, H559 and shall say, H5596 "Please put H259 me into one H3550 of the priests' offices, H398 that I may eat H6595 a morsel H3899 of bread."'"
