Samuel lay down until morning and then opened the doors of the house of the LORD. He was afraid to tell Eli the vision,
but Eli called him and said, "Samuel, my son." Samuel answered, "Here I am."
"What was it he said to you?" Eli asked. "Do not hide1 it from me. May God deal with you, be it ever so severely,2 if you hide from me anything he told you."
