  • 1. And there was a certain man of
    Ramathaim Zophim from the hills of
    Ephraim, and his name was Elkanah, the
    son of Jeroham, the son of Elihu, the son
    of Tohu, the son of Zuph, an Ephrathite.
  • 2. And he had two wives, the name of the
    one was Hannah, and the name of the
    second, Peninnah. And Peninnah had
    children, but Hannah had no children.
  • 3. And this man went up out of his city
    from year to year to worship and to sacrifice
    to the LORD of hosts in Shiloh.
    And the two sons of Eli, Hophni and
    Phinehas, the priests of the LORD, were
    there.
  • 4. And the time came that Elkanah offered,
    he gave portions to Peninnah his
    wife and to all her sons and her daughters.
  • 5. But to Hannah he gave one double
    portion, for he loved Hannah. However,
    the LORD had shut up her womb.
  • 6. And her foe also provoked her grievously,
    in order to frustrate her because
    the LORD had shut up her womb.
  • 7. And as he did so year by year, when
    she went up to the house of the LORD, so
    she provoked her. And she wept and did
    not eat.
  • 8. And Elkanah her husband said to her,
    “Hannah, why do you weep? And why
    do you not eat? And why is your heart
    grieved? Am I not better to you than ten
    sons?”
  • 9. And Hannah rose up after they had
    eaten in Shiloh and after they had drunk.
    And Eli the priest sat upon the seat by the
    side post of the temple
    starThis was the tabernacle as the temple
    of Solomon had not yet been built
    pointer
    of the LORD.
  • 10. And she was in bitterness of soul,
    and prayed to the LORD, and wept sorely.
  • 11. And she vowed a vow and said, “O,
    LORD of hosts, if You will indeed look
    upon the affliction of Your handmaid
    and remember me, and not forget Your
    handmaid, but will give to Your handmaid
    a manchild, then I will give him to
    the LORD all the days of his life, and
    there shall no razor come upon his head.”
  • 12. And it came to pass as she continued
    praying before the LORD, Eli noticed her
    mouth.
  • 13. Now Hannah spoke in her heart, only
    her lips moved, but her voice was not
    heard. And Eli thought she had become
    drunk.
  • 14. And Eli said to her, “How long will
    you be drunken? Put away your wine
    from you!”
  • 15. And Hannah answered, “No, my
    lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit.
    I have neither drunk wine nor strong
    drink, but have poured out my soul before
    the LORD.
  • 16. Do not count your handmaid for a
    daughter of wickedness, for out of the
    abundance of my anxiety and grief I have
    spoken until now.”
  • 17. And Eli answered and said, “Go in
    peace, and the God of Israel grant to you
    your petition that you have asked of
    Him.”
  • 18. And she said, “Let your handmaid
    find grace in your sight.” So the woman
    went her way and ate, and her face was
    no longer sad.
  • 19. And they rose up early in the morning
    and worshiped before the LORD,
    and returned, and came to their house to
    Ramah. And Elkanah knew Hannah his
    wife, and the LORD remembered her.
  • 20. And it came to pass when the time
    had come, Hannah conceived and bore a
    son and called his name Samuel, saying,
    “Because I have asked him of the
    LORD.”
  • 21. And the man Elkanah and all his
    house went up to offer to the LORD the
    yearly sacrifice and his vow.
  • 22. But Hannah did not go up, for she
    said to her husband, “Until the child is
    weaned, and then I will bring him so that
    he may appear before the LORD and stay
    there forever.”
  • 23. And Elkanah her husband said to her,
    “Do what seems good to you. Stay until
    you have weaned him. Only may the
    LORD establish His word.” So the
    woman stayed and gave her son suck
    until she weaned him.
  • 24. And when she had weaned him, she
    took him up with her, with three bulls
    and one ephah of flour, and a skin of
    wine, and brought him to the house of
    the LORD in Shiloh. And the child was
    young.
  • 25. And they killed a bull, and brought
    the child to Eli.
  • 26. And she said, “O, my lord, as your
    soul lives, my lord, I am the woman who
    stood by you here, praying to the LORD;
  • 27. For this boy I prayed, and the LORD
    has given me my petition which I asked
    of Him.
  • 28. And I have returned him to the
    LORD. As long as he lives, he shall be
    given to the LORD.” And he worshiped
    the LORD there.
