1 Samuel 1:5

Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

1 Samuel 1:5  (King James Version)
But unto Hannah he gave a worthy portion; for he loved Hannah: but the LORD had shut up her womb.

a worthy portion
or, a double portion.
The Hebrew phrase, {manah achath appayim,} is correctly rendered by Gesenius, {ein Stud fur zwei personen, doppelle Portion,} "a portion for two persons, a double portion;" for {aph} in Hebrew, and [prosopon] in Greek, which literally mean
a face, are used for a person. Genesis 43:34 ; 45:22

he loved
Genesis 29:30 Genesis 29:31 ; Deuteronomy 21:15

shut up
Genesis 20:18 ; 30:2
