Na Eli mmabarima baanu a wɔn din de Hofni ne Pinehas na wɔyɛ Awurade asɔfo wɔ hɔ saa bere no. 4Da biara a Elkana bɛba abɛbɔ afɔre no, ɔde nam no mu nkyɛmu bi ma ne yere Penina ne ne mma no mu biara. 5Nanso Hana de, na ne kyɛfa yɛ sononko, efisɛ na ɔdɔ no yiye. 6Nanso na Awurade ato nʼawode mu nti, na Penina di ne ho fɛw. 7Na saa asɛm yi kɔɔ so afe biara. Bere biara a wɔbɛkɔ Awurade fi no, Penina bɔ Hana akutia. Na eyi ma Hana su na onnidi mpo. 8Ɛba saa a, ne kunu Elkana bisa no se, “Hana, adɛn na woresu? Adɛn nti na wunnidi? Adɛn nti na wo werɛ ahow? So mensom bo mma wo nsen sɛ anka wowɔ mmabarima du mpo?”

Hana Bɔ Mpae Sɛ Ɔpɛ Ɔba

9Da koro bi a na wɔwɔ Silo no, Hana fii adi anwummere bi a wɔadidi awie sɛ ɔrekɔ Awurade fi akɔbɔ mpae. Na ɔsɔfo Eli te baabi a ɔtena daa wɔ Awurade fi pon ano hɔ. 10Hana fi awerɛhow a ano yɛ den mu sui, bere a na ɔrebɔ Awurade mpae. 11Na ɔhyɛɛ bɔ se, “Ao Asafo Awurade, sɛ wobɛhwɛ wo somfo awerɛhowdi so, na woatie me mpaebɔ ama me ɔbabarima a, ɛno de mede no bɛsan ama wo. Ne nna a obedi nyinaa ɔbɛyɛ wo de. Nea ɛbɛyɛ adansedi sɛ wɔde no ama Awurade ne sɛ wɔremfa oyiwan nka ne ti da.”

12Ogu so rebɔ mpae no, na Eli hwɛ no. 13Ohuu sɛ ɔrebesebese nʼano, nanso ɔnte nne biara no, Eli susuw sɛ wanom nsa. 14Obisaa no se, “Ɛsɛ sɛ woba ha bere a woabow nsa ana? Ma wʼani nna hɔ!”

18Hana teɛ mu se, “Ma wʼafenaa nya wʼanim anuonyam a, awura” Ɔsan kɔ kodidii, na wanni awerɛhow bio.

Wɔwo Samuel De No Ma Onyankopɔn

19Ade kyee anɔpahema no, ofi no mu nnipa sɔre kɔsom Awurade bio. Afei, wɔsan kɔɔ Rama. Bere a Elkana de ne ho kaa Hana no, Awurade kaee Hana adebisa no, 20na anni da bi, ɔwoo ɔbabarima. Ɔtoo no din Samuel na ɔkae se, “Mibisaa no fii Awurade nkyɛn.”

21Afe akyi no, Elkana, Penina, ne wɔn mma kɔɔ sɛ wɔrekɔbɔ afirihyia afɔre ama Awurade. 22Hana ankɔ bi. Ɔka kyerɛɛ ne kunu se, “Sɛ abofra no twa nufu a, mede no bɛkɔ Awurade fi na makogyaw no wɔ hɔ ama Awurade afebɔɔ.”

24Otwaa no nufu wiei no, ɔde no kɔɔ Awurade asɔre fi wɔ Silo. Wɔde nantwinini a wadi mfe abiɛsa ne esiam lita dunsia ne bobesa kakra bae. 25Wɔde nantwinini no bɔɔ afɔre wiee no, wɔde abofra no brɛɛ Eli. 26Hana kae se, “Owura mesrɛ wo. Sɛ wote ase yi, mene ɔbea a obegyinaa wo ho bɔɔ Awurade mpae no. 27Mebɔɔ saa abofra yi ho mpae, na Awurade ayɛ mʼabisade ama me. 28Enti mprempren, mede abofra yi rema Awurade. Ne nkwa nna nyinaa, ɔbɛyɛ Awurade dea.” Na ɔsom Awurade wɔ hɔ.

1 Samueli 1:1-28

Banja la Elikana

1Panali munthu wina wochokera ku Ramataimu, Mzofimu wa ku dziko la mapiri la Efereimu. Iyeyu dzina lake anali Elikana ndipo anali mwana wa Yerohamu, mwana wa Elihu, mwana wa Tohu, mwana wa Zufu wa fuko la Efereimu. 2Iye anali ndi akazi awiri, Hana ndi Penina. Penina anali ndi ana, koma Hana analibe.

3Chaka ndi chaka Elikana ankachoka ku mudzi kwawo kupita ku Silo kukapembedza ndi kukapereka nsembe kwa Yehova Wamphamvuzonse. Ku Siloko kunali ana awiri a Eli, Hofini ndi Finehasi amene anali ansembe a Yehova. 4Tsiku lopereka nsembe likafika Elikana amapereka magawo a nsembeyo kwa mkazi wake Penina ndi kwa ana ake onse aamuna ndi aakazi. 5Ngakhale ankamukonda Hana, koma ankamupatsa gawo limodzi popeza Yehova sanamupatse ana. 6Tsono popeza Yehova sanamupatse Hana ana, mkazi mnzakeyo ankamuyamba dala ndi cholinga chomukwiyitsa. 7Izi zimachitika chaka ndi chaka. Hana ankati akamapita ku Nyumba ya Yehova mkazi mnzakeyo ankamunyogodola. Choncho Hana ankangokhalira kulira osafuna ndi kudya komwe. 8Tsono mwamuna wake Elikana ankamufunsa kuti, “Hana ukulira chifukwa chiyani? Wakhumudwa ndi chiyani kuti sukufuna ndi kudya komwe? Kodi ine kwa iwe sindili woposa ana aamuna khumi?”

9Tsiku lina atatha kudya ndi kumwa ku Silo kuja, Hana anayimirira kukapemphera. Nthawiyi nʼkuti wansembe Eli atakhala pa mpando pa khomo la Nyumba ya Yehova. 10Hana anavutika mʼmoyo mwake, ndipo anapemphera kwa Yehova akulira kwambiri. 11Ndipo iye analumbira kuti, “Inu Yehova Wamphamvuzonse, ngati muyangʼana kusauka kwa mtumiki wanune, ndi kuyankha pemphero langa osandiyiwala ine mtumiki wanu pondipatsa mwana wamwamuna, ine ndidzamupereka mwanayo kwa inu Yehova masiku onse a moyo wake. Lumo silidzapita pa mutu pake.”

12Akupemphera choncho kwa Yehova, Eli ankamuyangʼana pakamwa. 13Hana ankapemphera chamumtima ndipo milomo yake inkangogwedera koma mawu ake samamveka. Choncho Eli anaganiza kuti anali ataledzera. 14Ndipo anamufunsa Hana kuti, “Kodi mukhala chiledzerere mpaka liti? Pitani, ayambe wakuchokani vinyo mwamwayo.”

15Koma Hana anayankha kuti, “Sichoncho mbuye wanga. Ndakhala ndikumukhuthulira Yehova chisoni changa. Sindinamwe vinyo kapena chakumwa choledzeretsa chilichonse, popeza nthawi yonseyi ndakhala ndikupereka kwa Yehova nkhawa yayikulu ndi mavuto anga. 16Musaganize kuti mtumiki wanu ndi kukhala mkazi wachabechabe. Ine ndakhala ndi kupereka nkhawa yanga yayikulu ndi zowawa zanga.”

17Eli anayankha, “Pitani mu mtendere, ndipo Mulungu wa Israeli akupatseni zimene mwamupemphazo.”

18Hana anati, “Mundikomerebe mtima mtumiki wanune.” Kenaka anachoka nakadya, ndipo sanaonekenso wachisoni.

19Elikana ndi banja lake anadzuka mmawa mwake nakapemphera pamaso pa Yehova. Pambuyo pake anabwerera kwawo ku Rama. Elikana anakhala pamodzi ndi mkazi wake, ndipo Yehova anamukumbuka Hanayo. 20Motero Hana anakhala ndi pakati ndipo anabereka mwana wamwamuna. Anamutcha dzina lake Samueli, popeza anati, “Ndinachita kumupempha kwa Yehova.”

Hana Apereka Samueli kwa Yehova

21Elikana ndi banja lake lonse anapita kukapereka nsembe ya pa chaka kwa Yehova ndi kukakwaniritsa malonjezo ake. 22Koma Hana sanapite nawo popeza anawuza mwamuna wake kuti, “Mwanayu akadzaleka kuyamwa, ndidzapita naye ndi kukamupereka pamaso pa Yehova ndipo adzakhala kumeneko moyo wake wonse.”

23Elikana mwamuna wake anamuwuza kuti, “Chita chimene chakukomera. Tsala kuno mpaka utamusiyitsa kuyamwa, Yehova yekha akwaniritse mawu ake.” Choncho mkaziyo anatsala ku nyumba ndi kusamalira mwana wake mpaka atamuletsa kuyamwa.

24Atamuletsa kuyamwa, Hana anatenga mwanayo ali wachichepere, ndikupita naye ku nyumba ya Yehova ku Silo. Anatenga ngʼombe yamphongo ya zaka zitatu, ufa wa makilogalamu khumi, ndi thumba lachikopa la vinyo. 25Tsono anapha ngʼombe yamphongo ija ndi kupereka mwana uja kwa Eli. 26Ndipo Hana anati kwa Eli, “Mbuye wanga, ine ndikunenetsadi pamaso panu kuti ndine mkazi uja amene anayima pamaso panu ndi kumapemphera kwa Yehova. 27Ndinapempha mwana uyu, ndipo Yehova wandipatsa chimene ndinamupempha. 28Ndiye tsopano ine ndikumupereka kwa Yehova. Pa moyo wake wonse adzakhala wa Yehova.” Ndipo onse anapembedza Yehova kumeneko.
