King James Version

1 Samuel 1:1-28

1Now there was a certain man of Ramathaim-zophim, 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: 2And 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. 3And 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.1.3 yearly: Heb. from year to year

4¶ And when the time was that Elkanah offered, he gave to Peninnah his wife, and to all her sons and her daughters, portions: 5But unto Hannah he gave a worthy portion; for he loved Hannah: but the LORD had shut up her womb.1.5 worthy: or, double 6And her adversary also provoked her sore, for to make her fret, because the LORD had shut up her womb.1.6 provoked: Heb. angered 7And 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.1.7 when…: or, from the time that she, etc: Heb. from her going up 8Then 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?

9¶ 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. 10And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the LORD, and wept sore.1.10 in…: Heb. bitter of soul 11And 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.1.11 a man…: Heb. seed of men 12And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the LORD, that Eli marked her mouth.1.12 continued…: Heb. multiplied to pray 13Now Hannah, she spake in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken. 14And Eli said unto her, How long wilt thou be drunken? put away thy wine from thee. 15And 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.1.15 of a sorrowful…: Heb. hard of spirit 16Count not thine handmaid for a daughter of Belial: for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief have I spoken hitherto.1.16 complaint: or, meditation 17Then Eli answered and said, Go in peace: and the God of Israel grant thee thy petition that thou hast asked of him. 18And 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. 20Wherefore 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.1.20 when…: Heb. in revolution of days1.20 Samuel: that is, Asked of God 21And the man Elkanah, and all his house, went up to offer unto the LORD the yearly sacrifice, and his vow. 22But 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. 23And 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. 25And they slew a bullock, and brought the child to Eli. 26And she said, Oh my lord, as thy soul liveth, my lord, I am the woman that stood by thee here, praying unto the LORD. 27For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him: 28Therefore 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.1.28 lent him: or, returned him, whom I have obtained by petition1.28 he shall…: or, he whom I have obtained by petition shall be returned

1 Samuel 1:1-28

Ang Kapanganakan ni Samuel

1May isang lalaking mula sa angkan ni Zuf na ang pangalan ay Elkana. Nakatira siya sa Rama, sa maburol na lupain ng Efraim. Anak siya ni Jeroham na anak ni Elihu. Si Elihu ay anak naman ni Tohu na anak ni Zuf, na mula sa lahi ni Efraim. 2Si Elkana ay may dalawang asawa. Sila ay sina Hanna at Penina. May mga anak si Penina pero si Hanna ay wala.

3Taun-taon, pumupunta si Elkana at ang sambahayan niya sa Shilo upang sumamba at maghandog sa Panginoong Makapangyarihan. Ang dalawang anak ni Eli na sina Hofni at Finehas ang mga pari ng Panginoon sa Shilo. 4Sa tuwing maghahandog si Elkana, hinahati niya ang ibang bahagi ng kanyang handog para kay Penina at sa mga anak niya. 5Pero doble ang bahagi na ibinibigay niya kay Hanna dahil mahal niya ito kahit hindi siya nagkakaanak, dahil ginawa siyang baog ng Dios. 6At dahil hindi nga siya magkaanak, lagi siyang iniinis at hinihiya ni Penina na kanyang karibal. 7Ganito ang laging nangyayari taun-taon. Sa tuwing pupunta si Hanna sa bahay ng Panginoon, iniinis siya ni Penina hanggang sa umiyak na lang siya at hindi na kumain. 8Sinasabi ni Elkana sa kanya, “Bakit ka umiiyak? Bakit ayaw mong kumain? Bakit ka malungkot? Mas mahalaga ba para sa iyo ang sampung anak kaysa sa akin?”

9-10Minsan, pagkatapos nilang kumain sa bahay ng Panginoon sa Shilo, tumayo si Hanna at nanalangin nang umiiyak dahil sa labis na kalungkutan. Nakaupo noon ang pari na si Eli sa may pintuan ng bahay ng Panginoon.1:9-10 bahay ng Panginoon: sa Hebreo, templo ng Panginoon. 11Nangako si Hanna sa Panginoon. Sinabi niya, “O Panginoong Makapangyarihan, tingnan po ninyo ang aking paghihirap. Alalahanin ninyo ang inyong lingkod at huwag ninyo akong kalimutan. Kung bibigyan nʼyo po ako ng isang anak na lalaki, ihahandog ko siya sa inyo para maglingkod sa inyo sa buong buhay niya. At bilang tanda nang lubos niyang pagsunod sa inyo, hindi ko po pagugupitan ang kanyang buhok.”

12-13Habang patuloy siyang nananalangin sa Panginoon, nakita ni Eli na bumubuka ang bibig ni Hanna pero hindi naririnig ang kanyang boses. Inakala ni Eli na lasing si Hanna, 14kaya sinabi niya sa kanya, “Hanggang kailan ka maglalasing? Tigilan mo na ang pag-inom!” 15Sumagot si Hanna, “Hindi po ako lasing, at hindi po ako nakainom ng kahit anong klase ng inumin. Ibinubuhos ko lang po sa Panginoon ang paghihirap na aking nararamdaman. 16Huwag po ninyong isipin na masama akong babae. Nananalangin po ako rito dahil sa labis na kalungkutan.”

17Sinabi ni Eli, “Sige, umuwi kang mapayapa. Sanaʼy ipagkaloob ng Dios ng Israel ang hinihiling mo sa kanya.” 18Sumagot si Hanna, “Salamat po sa kabutihan ninyo sa akin.” Pagkatapos ay umalis na siya at kumain, at nawala na ang lungkot sa kanyang mukha.

19Kinabukasan, maagang bumangon si Elkana at ang kanyang pamilya, at silaʼy sumamba sa Panginoon. Pagkatapos ay umuwi sila sa bahay nila sa Rama. Sinipingan ni Elkana si Hanna at sinagot ng Panginoon ang panalangin ni Hanna na bigyan siya ng anak. 20At dumating ang panahon na nagbuntis siya at nanganak ng isang lalaki. Pinangalanan niya itong Samuel,1:20 Samuel: Maaaring ang ibig sabihin, dininig ng Dios. dahil sinabi niya, “Hiningi ko siya sa Panginoon.”

Inihandog ni Hanna si Samuel

21Muling dumating ang panahon na si Elkana at ang buo niyang pamilya ay maghahandog sa Panginoon gaya ng ginagawa nila taun-taon. Ito rin ang panahon na maghahandog siya bilang pagtupad sa panata niya sa Panginoon. 22Pero hindi sumama si Hanna. Sinabi niya sa kanyang asawa, “Kapag naawat na ang sanggol sa pagsuso sa akin, dadalhin ko siya sa bahay ng Panginoon para ihandog sa kanya. Doon na siya titira sa buong buhay niya.” 23Sumagot si Elkana, “Gawin mo kung ano ang sa tingin moʼy mabuti. Dito ka na lang muna hanggang sa maawat mo na ang sanggol. Tulungan ka sana ng Panginoon na matupad ang ipinangako mo sa kanya.” Kaya nagpaiwan si Hanna at inalagaan ang kanyang anak.

24Nang maawat na ang bata, dinala siya ni Hanna sa bahay ng Panginoon sa Shilo. Nagdala rin siya ng tatlong taong gulang na toro, kalahating sako ng harina at katas ng ubas na nakalagay sa balat na sisidlan. 25Matapos katayin ang toro, dinala nila si Samuel kay Eli. 26Sinabi ni Hanna kay Eli, “Kung natatandaan nʼyo po, ako ang babaeng tumayo rito noon na nanalangin sa Panginoon. 27Hiningi ko po ang batang ito sa Panginoon at ibinigay niya ang kahilingan ko. 28Kaya ngayon, ihahandog ko po siya sa Panginoon. Maglilingkod po ang batang ito sa Panginoon sa buong buhay niya.” Pagkatapos ay sumamba sila sa1:28 sila sa: o, siya sa. Panginoon.
