7 Samuel did not yet know the because he had never had a message from the before.
8 So the called a third time, and once more Samuel got up and went to Eli. “Here I am. Did you call me?” Then Eli realized it was the who was calling the boy.
9 So he said to Samuel, “Go and lie down again, and if someone calls again, say, ‘Speak, , your servant is listening.’” So Samuel went back to bed.
10 And the came and called as before, “Samuel! Samuel!” And Samuel replied, “Speak, your servant is listening.”
11 Then the said to Samuel, “I am about to do a shocking thing in Israel.
12 I am going to carry out all my threats against Eli and his family, from beginning to end.
13 I have warned him that judgment is coming upon his family forever, because his sons are blaspheming Goda and he hasn’t disciplined them.
