1 Samuel 2

  1 H2584 And Hannah H6419 [H8691] prayed H559 [H8799] , and said H3820 , My heart H5970 [H8804] rejoiceth H3068 in the LORD H7161 , my horn H7311 [H8804] is exalted H3068 in the LORD H6310 : my mouth H7337 [H8804] is enlarged H341 [H8802] over my enemies H8055 [H8804] ; because I rejoice H3444 in thy salvation.
  2 H6918 There is none holy H3068 as the LORD H1115 : for there is none besides H6697 thee: neither is there any rock H430 like our God.
  3 H1696 [H8762] Talk H7235 [H8686] no more H1364 so exceeding H1364 proudly H6277 ; let no arrogance H3318 [H8799] come H6310 out of your mouth H3068 : for the LORD H410 is a God H1844 of knowledge H5949 , and by him actions H8505 [H8738] are weighed.
  4 H7198 The bows H1368 of the mighty men H2844 are broken H3782 [H8737] , and they that stumbled H247 [H8804] are girded H2428 with strength.
  5 H7649 They that were full H7936 [H8738] have hired out H3899 themselves for bread H7457 ; and they that were hungry H2308 [H8804] ceased H6135 : so that the barren H3205 [H8804] hath borne H7651 seven H7227 ; and she that hath many H1121 children H535 [H8797] is become feeble.
  6 H3068 The LORD H4191 [H8688] killeth H2421 [H8764] , and maketh alive H3381 [H8688] : he bringeth down H7585 to the grave H5927 [H8686] , and bringeth up.
  7 H3068 The LORD H3423 [H8688] maketh poor H6238 [H8688] , and maketh rich H8213 [H8688] : he bringeth low H637 , and H7311 [H8789] lifteth up.
  8 H6965 [H8688] He raiseth H1800 the poor H6083 out of the dust H7311 [H8686] , and lifteth H34 the beggar H830 from the dunghill H3427 [H8687] , to set H5081 them among princes H5157 [H8686] , 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 [H8799] , and he hath set H8398 the world upon them.
  9 H8104 [H8799] He will keep H7272 the feet H2623 of his saints H7563 , and the wicked H1826 [H8735] shall be silent H2822 in darkness H3581 ; for by strength H376 shall no man H1396 [H8799] prevail.
  10 H7378 [H8688] The adversaries H3068 of the LORD H2865 [H8735] shall be broken to pieces H8064 ; out of heaven H7481 [H8686] shall he thunder H3068 upon them: the LORD H1777 [H8799] shall judge H657 the ends H776 of the earth H5414 [H8799] ; and he shall give H5797 strength H4428 to his king H7311 [H8686] , and exalt H7161 the horn H4899 of his anointed.
  11 H511 And Elkanah H3212 [H8799] went H7414 to Ramah H1004 to his house H5288 . And the child H1961 H8334 [H8804] ministered H3068 to the LORD H6440 before H5941 Eli H3548 the priest.
  12 H1121 Now the sons H5941 of Eli H1100 were worthless H1121 men H3045 [H8804] ; they knew H3068 not the LORD.
  13 H3548 And the priests H4941 ' custom H5971 with the people H376 was, that, when any man H2076 [H8802] offered H2077 sacrifice H3548 , the priest's H5288 servant H935 [H8804] came H1320 , while the flesh H1310 [H8763] was boiling H4207 , with a fleshhook H7969 of three H8127 teeth H3027 in his hand;
  14 H5221 [H8689] And he struck H3595 it into the pan H1731 , or kettle H7037 , or caldron H6517 , or pot H4207 ; all that the fleshhook H5927 [H8686] brought up H3548 the priest H3947 [H8799] took H6213 [H8799] for himself. So they did H7887 in Shiloh H3478 to all the Israelites H935 [H8802] that came there.
  15 H6999 [H8686] Also before they burnt H2459 the fat H3548 , the priest's H5288 servant H935 [H8804] came H559 [H8804] , and said H376 to the man H2076 [H8802] that sacrificed H5414 [H8798] , Give H1320 flesh H6740 [H8800] to roast H3548 for the priest H3947 [H8799] ; for he will not have H1310 [H8794] boiled H1320 flesh H2416 of thee, but raw.
  16 H376 And if any man H559 [H8799] said H6999 [H8686] to him, Let them not fail H6999 [H8763] to burn H2459 the fat H3117 presently H3947 [H8798] , and then take H5315 as much as thy soul H183 [H8762] desireth H559 [H8804] ; then he would answer H5414 [H8799] him, Nay; but thou shalt give H3947 [H8804] it to me now: and if not, I will take H2394 it by force.
  17 H2403 Therefore the sin H5288 of the young men H3966 was very H1419 great H6440 before H3068 the LORD H582 : for men H5006 [H8765] abhorred H4503 the offering H3068 of the LORD.
  18 H8050 But Samuel H8334 [H8764] ministered H6440 before H3068 the LORD H5288 , being a child H2296 [H8803] , girded H906 with a linen H646 ephod.
  19 H517 Moreover his mother H6213 [H8799] made H6996 him a little H4598 coat H5927 [H8689] , and brought H3117 it to him from year H3117 to year H5927 [H8800] , when she came up H376 with her husband H2076 [H8800] to offer H3117 the yearly H2077 sacrifice.
  20 H5941 And Eli H1288 [H8765] blessed H511 Elkanah H802 and his wife H559 [H8804] , and said H3068 , The LORD H7760 [H8799] give H2233 thee seed H802 of this woman H7596 for the loan H7592 [H8804] which is lent H3068 to the LORD H1980 [H8804] . And they went H4725 to their own home.
  21 H3588 And H3068 the LORD H6485 [H8804] visited H2584 Hannah H2029 [H8799] , so that she conceived H3205 [H8799] , and bore H7969 three H1121 sons H8147 and two H1323 daughters H5288 . And the child H8050 Samuel H1431 [H8799] grew H5973 before H3068 the LORD.
  22 H5941 Now Eli H3966 was very H2204 [H8804] old H8085 [H8804] , and heard H1121 all that his sons H6213 [H8799] did H3478 to all Israel H7901 [H8799] ; and how they lay H802 with the women H6633 [H8802] that assembled H6607 at the door H168 of the tabernacle H4150 of the congregation.
  23 H559 [H8799] And he said H6213 [H8799] to them, Why do H1697 ye such things H8085 [H8802] ? for I hear 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 [H8802] that I hear H3068 : ye make the LORD'S H5971 people H5674 [H8688] to transgress.
  25 H376 If one man H2398 [H8799] shall sin H376 against another H430 , the judge H6419 [H8765] shall judge H376 him: but if a man H2398 [H8799] shall sin H3068 against the LORD H6419 [H8691] , who shall plead H8085 [H8799] for him? However they hearkened H6963 not to the voice H1 of their father H3068 , because the LORD H2654 [H8804] would H4191 [H8687] slay them.
  26 H5288 And the child H8050 Samuel H1980 [H8802] continued H1432 to grow H2896 , and was in favour H3068 both with the LORD H582 , and also with men.
  27 H935 [H8799] And there came H376 a man H430 of God H5941 to Eli H559 [H8799] , and said H559 [H8804] to him, Thus saith H3068 the LORD H1540 [H8736] , Did I plainly H1540 [H8738] appear H1004 to the house H1 of thy father H4714 , when they were in Egypt H6547 in Pharaoh's H1004 house?
  28 H977 [H8800] And did I choose H7626 him out of all the tribes H3478 of Israel H3548 to be my priest H5927 [H8800] , to offer H4196 upon my altar H6999 [H8687] , to burn H7004 incense H5375 [H8800] , to wear H646 an ephod H6440 before H5414 [H8799] me? and did I give H1004 to the house H1 of thy father H801 all the offerings made by fire H1121 of the children H3478 of Israel?
  29 H1163 [H8799] Why trample H2077 ye at my sacrifice H4503 and at my offering H6680 [H8765] , which I have commanded H4583 in my habitation H3513 [H8762] ; and honourest H1121 thy sons H1254 [H8687] above me, to make yourselves fat H7225 with the chiefest H4503 of all the offerings H3478 of Israel H5971 my people?
  30 H3068 Therefore the LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel H5002 [H8803] saith H559 [H8804] , I said H559 [H8800] indeed H1004 that thy house H1004 , and the house H1 of thy father H1980 [H8691] , should walk H6440 before H5704 me for H5769 ever H3068 : but now the LORD H5002 [H8803] saith H2486 , Be it far from me H3513 [H8764] ; for them that honour H3513 [H8762] me I will honour H959 [H8802] , and they that despise H7043 [H8799] me shall be lightly esteemed.
  31 H3117 Behold, the days H935 [H8802] come H1438 [H8804] , that I will cut off H2220 thy 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 [H8689] And thou shalt see H6862 an enemy H4583 in my habitation H3190 [H8686] , 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 [H8686] of thine, whom I shall not cut off H4196 from my altar H3615 [H8763] , shall be to consume H5869 thy eyes H109 , and to grieve H5315 thy heart H4768 : and all the increase H1004 of thy house H4191 [H8799] shall die H582 in the flower of their age.
  34 H226 And this shall be a sign H935 [H8799] to thee, that shall come H8147 upon thy two H1121 sons H2652 , on Hophni H6372 and Phinehas H259 ; in one H3117 day H4191 [H8799] they shall die H8147 both of them.
  35 H6965 [H8689] And I will raise up for myself H539 [H8737] a faithful H3548 priest H6213 [H8799] , that shall do H3824 according to that which is in my heart H5315 and in my mind H1129 [H8804] : and I will build H539 [H8737] him a sure H1004 house H1980 [H8694] ; and he shall walk H6440 before H4899 my anointed H3117 for ever.
  36 H3498 [H8737] And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left H1004 in thy house H935 [H8799] shall come H7812 [H8692] and bow down H95 to him for a piece H3701 of silver H3603 and a morsel H3899 of bread H559 [H8804] , and shall say H5596 [H8798] , Put H259 me, I pray thee, into one H3550 of the priests' offices H398 [H8800] , that I may eat H6595 a piece H3899 of bread.
