"Do what seems best to you," Elkanah her husband told her. "Stay here until you have weaned him; only may the LORD make good2 hisa word." So the woman stayed at home and nursed her son until she had weaned3 him.
After he was weaned, she took the boy with her, young as he was, along with a three-year-old bull,b4 an ephahc of flour and a skin of wine, and brought him to the house of the LORD at Shiloh.
