1 Samuel 2:18-26

CEB 18 Now Samuel was serving the LORD. He was a young boy, clothed in a linen priestly vest. NRS 18 Samuel was ministering before the Lord, a boy wearing a linen ephod. CEB 19 His mother would make a small robe for him and take it to him every year when she went up with her husband to offer the annual sacrifice. NRS 19 His mother used to make for him a little robe and take it to him each year, when she went up with her husband to offer the yearly sacrifice. CEB 20 Eli would bless Elkanah and his wife: "May the LORD replace the child of this woman that you gave back to the LORD." Then they would return home. NRS 20 Then Eli would bless Elkanah and his wife, and say, "May the Lord repay you with children by this woman for the gift that she made to the Lord"; and then they would return to their home. CEB 21 The LORD paid attention to Hannah, and she conceived and gave birth to three sons and two daughters. Meanwhile, the boy Samuel grew up in the LORD's service. NRS 21 And the Lord took note of Hannah; she conceived and bore three sons and two daughters. And the boy Samuel grew up in the presence of the Lord. CEB 22 Eli was very old, but he heard everything his sons were doing to the Israelites, and how they had sex with the women who served at the meeting tent's entrance. NRS 22 Now Eli was very old. He heard all that his sons were doing to all Israel, and how they lay with the women who served at the entrance to the tent of meeting. CEB 23 Eli said to his sons, "Why are you doing these terrible things that I'm hearing about from everybody? NRS 23 He said to them, "Why do you do such things? For I hear of your evil dealings from all these people. CEB 24 No, my sons. Don't do this. The report I hear spreading among God's people isn't good. NRS 24 No, my sons; it is not a good report that I hear the people of the Lord spreading abroad. CEB 25 If someone sins against someone else, God can intercede; but if someone sins against the LORD, who will intercede then?" But they wouldn't obey their father because the LORD wanted to kill them. NRS 25 If one person sins against another, someone can intercede for the sinner with the Lord; but if someone sins against the Lord, who can make intercession?" But they would not listen to the voice of their father; for it was the will of the Lord to kill them. CEB 26 Meanwhile, the boy Samuel kept growing up and was more and more liked by both the LORD and the people. NRS 26 Now the boy Samuel continued to grow both in stature and in favor with the Lord and with the people.
