1 Samuel 1:4-8 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
4 Whenever the day came for Elkanah to sacrifice,1 he would give portions of the meat to his wife Peninnah and to all her sons and daughters.2 5 But to Hannah he gave a double portion3 because he loved her, and the LORD had closed her womb.4 6 And because the LORD had closed her womb, her rival kept provoking her in order to irritate her.5 7 This went on year after year. Whenever Hannah went up to the house of the LORD, her rival provoked her till she wept and would not eat.6 8 Elkanah her husband would say to her, "Hannah, why are you weeping? Why don't you eat? Why are you downhearted? Don't I mean more to you than ten sons?7"
