King James Version

1 Samuel 1

1Now there was a certain man of Ramathaimzophim, of mount Ephraim, and his name was Elkanah, the son of Jeroham, the son of Elihu, the son of Tohu, the son of Zuph, an Ephrathite:

And he had two wives; the name of the one was Hannah, and the name of the other Peninnah: and Peninnah had children, but Hannah had no children.

And this man went up out of his city yearly to worship and to sacrifice unto the Lord of hosts in Shiloh. And the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, the priests of the Lord, were there.

And when the time was that Elkanah offered, he gave to Peninnah his wife, and to all her sons and her daughters, portions:

But unto Hannah he gave a worthy portion; for he loved Hannah: but the Lord had shut up her womb.

And her adversary also provoked her sore, for to make her fret, because the Lord had shut up her womb.

And as he did so year by year, when she went up to the house of the Lord, so she provoked her; therefore she wept, and did not eat.

Then said Elkanah her husband to her, Hannah, why weepest thou? and why eatest thou not? and why is thy heart grieved? am not I better to thee than ten sons?

So Hannah rose up after they had eaten in Shiloh, and after they had drunk. Now Eli the priest sat upon a seat by a post of the temple of the Lord.

10 And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the Lord, and wept sore.

11 And she vowed a vow, and said, O Lord of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the Lord all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head.

12 And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the Lord, that Eli marked her mouth.

13 Now Hannah, she spake in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken.

14 And Eli said unto her, How long wilt thou be drunken? put away thy wine from thee.

15 And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the Lord.

16 Count not thine handmaid for a daughter of Belial: for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief have I spoken hitherto.

17 Then Eli answered and said, Go in peace: and the God of Israel grant thee thy petition that thou hast asked of him.

18 And she said, Let thine handmaid find grace in thy sight. So the woman went her way, and did eat, and her countenance was no more sad.

19 And they rose up in the morning early, and worshipped before the Lord, and returned, and came to their house to Ramah: and Elkanah knew Hannah his wife; and the Lord remembered her.

20 Wherefore it came to pass, when the time was come about after Hannah had conceived, that she bare a son, and called his name Samuel, saying, Because I have asked him of the Lord.

21 And the man Elkanah, and all his house, went up to offer unto the Lord the yearly sacrifice, and his vow.

22 But Hannah went not up; for she said unto her husband, I will not go up until the child be weaned, and then I will bring him, that he may appear before the Lord, and there abide for ever.

23 And Elkanah her husband said unto her, Do what seemeth thee good; tarry until thou have weaned him; only the Lord establish his word. So the woman abode, and gave her son suck until she weaned him.

24 And when she had weaned him, she took him up with her, with three bullocks, and one ephah of flour, and a bottle of wine, and brought him unto the house of the Lord in Shiloh: and the child was young.

25 And they slew a bullock, and brought the child to Eli.

26 And she said, Oh my lord, as thy soul liveth, my lord, I am the woman that stood by thee here, praying unto the Lord.

27 For this child I prayed; and the Lord hath given me my petition which I asked of him:

28 Therefore also I have lent him to the Lord; as long as he liveth he shall be lent to the Lord. And he worshipped the Lord there.

撒母耳记上 1

撒母耳的出生

1有一个以法莲人名叫以利加拿,住在以法莲山区的拉玛·琐非城。他是苏弗的玄孙、托户的曾孙、以利户的孙子、耶罗罕的儿子。 他有两个妻子,一个叫哈娜,一个叫毗尼娜。毗尼娜有儿有女,哈娜却无儿无女。

以利加拿每年都从家乡到示罗去敬拜万军之耶和华,献上祭物。当时以利的两个儿子何弗尼和非尼哈在那里做耶和华的祭司。 每当献完祭后,以利加拿就会把祭肉分给毗尼娜和她的儿女。 但他会给哈娜双份祭肉,因为他爱哈娜,虽然耶和华使她不能生育。 毗尼娜见她不能生育,便常常羞辱她、气她。 每年来到耶和华的殿时,毗尼娜总是惹她伤心哭泣,以致她吃不下饭。 她的丈夫以利加拿对她说:“哈娜,你为什么哭?为什么不吃饭?为什么心里难过?有我不是比有十个儿子更好吗?”

一天,他们在示罗吃完饭后,哈娜起来祷告。当时,祭司以利正坐在耶和华殿门口的座位上。 10 哈娜心中愁苦,一边祷告一边伤心地哭泣。 11 她向上帝许愿说:“万军之耶和华啊,如果你眷顾婢女的痛苦,不忘记婢女,赐给婢女一个儿子,我必让他终生事奉你,永不剃他的头[a]。” 12 哈娜在耶和华面前祷告,以利注视着她的嘴唇。 13 哈娜在心中默祷,只动嘴唇,不出声音,以利以为她喝醉了, 14 便对她说:“你要醉到什么时候呢?醒醒酒吧!” 15 哈娜答道:“我主啊,我没有喝醉,我淡酒和烈酒都没有喝。我是心里非常愁苦,在耶和华面前倾诉心事。 16 请不要以为我是堕落的女人,我心中非常悲伤痛苦,所以一直在祷告。” 17 以利说:“你安心地回去吧,愿以色列的上帝答应你的祈求。” 18 哈娜说:“谢谢你恩待婢女。”于是,她就去吃饭,不再愁容满面了。

19 第二天,以利加拿一家清早起来敬拜耶和华,然后回到自己的家乡拉玛。以利加拿与哈娜同房,耶和华顾念哈娜, 20 使她怀孕。她后来生了一个儿子,给孩子取名叫撒母耳,因为她说:“他是我向耶和华求来的。”

21 第二年,以利加拿带全家人前往示罗,向耶和华献年祭并还所许的愿。 22 哈娜没有跟他们同去,她告诉丈夫说:“孩子断奶以后,我会把他带去献给耶和华,让他永远住在那里。” 23 以利加拿说:“就依你的意思吧。愿耶和华成就祂的应许。”于是,她就留在家中哺养孩子,直到孩子断奶。 24 孩子断奶以后,她就把他带到示罗耶和华的殿,并带去三头公牛、十公斤面粉和一袋酒。 25 他们宰了一头公牛后,就把孩子带到以利面前。 26 哈娜说:“我主啊,我敢在你面前起誓,我就是那一次站在你这里向耶和华祈求的妇人。 27 我求耶和华赐给我一个孩子,祂应允了我的祈求。 28 现在,我将他献给耶和华,让他终身事奉耶和华。”

他便在那里敬拜耶和华。
