Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:1 - Now there was a certain man from Ramathaim-zophim from the hill country of Ephraim, and his name was Elkanah the son of Jeroham, the son of Elihu, the son of Tohu, the son of Zuph, an Ephraimite.

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:2 - He had two wives: the name of one was Hannah and the name of the other Peninnah; and Peninnah had children, but Hannah had no children.

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:3 - Now this man would go up from his city yearly to worship and to sacrifice to the LORD of hosts in Shiloh. And the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were priests to the LORD there.

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:4 - When the day came that Elkanah sacrificed, he would give portions to Peninnah his wife and to all her sons and her daughters;

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:5 - but to Hannah he would give a double portion, for he loved Hannah, but the LORD had closed her womb.

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:6 - Her rival, however, would provoke her bitterly to irritate her, because the LORD had closed her womb.

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:7 - It happened year after year, as often as she went up to the house of the LORD, she would provoke her; so she wept and would not eat.

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:8 - Then Elkanah her husband said to her, “Hannah, why do you weep and why do you not eat and why is your heart sad? Am I not better to you than ten sons?”

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:9 - Then Hannah rose after eating and drinking in Shiloh. Now Eli the priest was sitting on the seat by the doorpost of the temple of the LORD.

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:10 - She, [fn]greatly distressed, prayed to the LORD and wept bitterly.

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:11 - She made a vow and said, “O LORD of hosts, if You will indeed look on the affliction of Your maidservant and remember me, and not forget Your maidservant, but will give Your maidservant a [fn]son, then I will give him to the LORD all the days of his life, and a razor shall never come on his head.”

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:12 - Now it came about, as she [fn]continued praying before the LORD, that Eli was watching her mouth.

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:13 - As for Hannah, she was speaking in her heart, only her lips were moving, but her voice was not heard. So Eli thought she was drunk.

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:14 - Then Eli said to her, “How long will you make yourself drunk? Put away your wine from you.”

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:15 - But Hannah replied, “No, my lord, I am a woman [fn]oppressed in spirit; I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but I have poured out my soul before the LORD.

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:16 - “Do not [fn]consider your maidservant as a worthless woman, for I have spoken until now out of my great concern and [fn]provocation.”

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:17 - Then Eli answered and said, “Go in peace; and may the God of Israel grant your petition that you have asked of Him.”

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:18 - She said, “Let your maidservant find favor in your sight.” So the woman went her way and ate, and her face was no longer sad.

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:19 - Then they arose early in the morning and worshiped before the LORD, and returned again to their house in Ramah. And Elkanah [fn]had relations with Hannah his wife, and the LORD remembered her.

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:20 - It came about [fn]in due time, after Hannah had conceived, that she gave birth to a son; and she named him Samuel, saying, “Because I have asked him of the LORD.”

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:21 - Then the man Elkanah went up with all his household to offer to the LORD the yearly sacrifice and pay his vow.

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:22 - But Hannah did not go up, for she said to her husband, “I will not go up until the child is weaned; then I will bring him, that he may appear before the LORD and stay there forever.”

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:23 - Elkanah her husband said to her, “Do what seems best [fn]to you. Remain until you have weaned him; only may the LORD confirm His word.” So the woman remained and nursed her son until she weaned him.

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:24 - Now when she had weaned him, she took him up with her, with a three-year-old bull and one ephah of flour and a jug of wine, and brought him to the house of the LORD in Shiloh, although the child was young.

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:25 - Then they slaughtered the bull, and brought the boy to Eli.

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:26 - She said, “Oh, my lord! As your soul lives, my lord, I am the woman who stood here beside you, praying to the LORD.

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:27 - “For this boy I prayed, and the LORD has given me my petition which I asked of Him.

Unchecked Copy Box1Sa 1:28 - “So I have also [fn]dedicated him to the LORD; as long as he lives he is [fn]dedicated to the LORD.” And he worshiped the LORD there.
