View In My Bible
13 As for Hannah, 1she was speaking in her heart, only her lips were moving, but her voice was not heard. So Eli thought she was drunk. 14 Then Eli said to her, "2How long will you make yourself drunk? Put away your wine from you." 15 But Hannah replied, "No, my lord, I am a woman aoppressed in spirit; I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but I 3have poured out my soul before the LORD. 16 "Do not bconsider your maidservant as a worthless woman, for I have spoken until now out of my great concern and cprovocation." 17 Then Eli answered and said, "4Go in peace; and may the God of Israel 5grant your petition that you have asked of Him." 18 She said, "6Let your maidservant find favor in your sight." So the woman went her way and ate, and 7her face was no longer sad.

19 Then they arose early in the morning and worshiped before the LORD, and returned again to their house in 8Ramah. And Elkanah dhad relations with Hannah his wife, and 9the LORD remembered her. 20 It came about ein due time, after Hannah had conceived, that she gave birth to a son; and she named him Samuel, saying, "10Because I have asked him of the LORD." 21 Then the man Elkanah 11went up with all his household to offer to the LORD the yearly sacrifice and pay his vow. 22 But Hannah did not go up, for she said to her husband, "I will not go up until the child is weaned; then I will 12bring him, that he may appear before the LORD and 13stay there forever ." 23 14Elkanah her husband said to her, "Do what seems best fto you. Remain until you have weaned him; only 15may the LORD confirm His word." So the woman remained and nursed her son until she weaned him.
