1 Samuel 3:3-9 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
3 The lamp1 of God had not yet gone out, and Samuel was lying down in the templea2 of the LORD, where the ark3 of God was. 4 Then the LORD called Samuel. Samuel answered, "Here I am.4" 5 And he ran to Eli and said, "Here I am; you called me." But Eli said, "I did not call; go back and lie down." So he went and lay down. 6 Again the LORD called, "Samuel!" And Samuel got up and went to Eli and said, "Here I am; you called me." "My son," Eli said, "I did not call; go back and lie down." 7 Now Samuel did not yet know5 the LORD: The word6 of the LORD had not yet been revealed7 to him. 8 The LORD called Samuel a third time, and Samuel got up and went to Eli and said, "Here I am; you called me." Then Eli realized that the LORD was calling the boy. 9 So Eli told Samuel, "Go and lie down, and if he calls you, say, 'Speak, LORD, for your servant is listening.' " So Samuel went and lay down in his place.
