1 Samuel 1
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And there was a man from Ramtha d' Dawqay from the Mountain of Aphreim and his name, Halqanah, son of Yarkhum, son of Elihu, son of Takhu, son of Tsuph the Ephrathite 2And he had two wives; the name of one, Khanna, and the name of the other, Pannana, and Pannana had children and Khanna had no children

3And that man was going up from his town from time to time to worship and to sacrifice to LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts in Shilo, and there were two sons of Eli there, Khaphni and Phinkhas, Priests to LORD JEHOVAH 4And the day came and Halqanah offered and he gave to Pannana his wife, and to all of her sons and her daughters he gave portions 5And to Khanna he gave one double portion, because he loved Khanna, and LORD JEHOVAH had shut her womb 6And his rival wife was provoking her also to anger, so that she would grieve her because LORD JEHOVAH had shut in the face of her womb 7And thus Pannana was doing every year by year in the time that she was going up to the house of LORD JEHOVAH, so she was provoking her, and Khanna wept and she was not eating 8And Halqanah her husband said to her: “Khanna, why are you weeping, and why have you not been eating, and why is your heart sad? Behold, I am better for you than ten sons”

9And Khanna arose after she had eaten in Shilo and after she had drunk, and she went up to the house of LORD JEHOVAH, and Eli the Priest was sitting on a seat by the door post of the temple of LORD JEHOVAH 10And her soul was bitter and she was praying before LORD JEHOVAH, and was weeping greatly 11And she vowed a vow and she said: “LORD JEHOVAH of Hosts, if surely you shall look on the obedience of your Maid Servant and you will remember and not forget your Maid Servant, and you will give to your Maid Servant a son, I shall give him to LORD JEHOVAH all the days of his life, and a razor shall not go up on his head”

12And it was that when she continued to pray before LORD JEHOVAH and Eli was watching her mouth 13And Hannah was speaking in her heart only, and her lips were moving and her voice was not heard, Eli considered her as drunk 14And Eli said to her: “How long will you be drunk? Put away your wine from you!” 15Khanna answered and she said to him: “No, my Lord! I am a woman distressed of spirit, and wine and strong drink I have not drunk, and I have poured out my soul before LORD JEHOVAH! 16Do not consider your Maid Servant before you a daughter of sin, because I have spoken from an abundance of my adversity and of my passion until now!” 17And Eli answered and said to her: “Go in peace, and the God of Israel will grant your request that you have asked from him” 18And she said: “May your MaidServant find favor in your eyes.” And the woman went her way and her soul did not trouble her again

19And they arose at dawn and they bowed before LORD JEHOVAH and they returned and they went to their house at Ramtha. And Halqanah had sexual relations with Khanna his wife, and LORD JEHOVAH remembered her 20And it happened at the time of days, and Khanna conceived and she bore a son, and she called his name Shemueil, because she requested him from LORD JEHOVAH

21And the man Halqanah came up and all his household to sacrifice to LORD JEHOVAH a sacrifice of the days of his vow 22And Hannah did not go up because she said to her husband: “Until the boy is weaned, and I will bring him and he will appear before LORD JEHOVAH and he shall dwell there forever” 23And Halqanah her husband said to her: “Do according to what is excellent in your eyes. Remain until you will wean him, however may LORD JEHOVAH establish your word.” And the woman stayed and nursed her son until she had weaned him 24And she took him up with her on a three year old ox when she had weaned him, and one basket of meal and one pot of wine, and she brought him to the house of LORD JEHOVAH to Shiloh, and the boy was young 25And they slaughtered the ox and they brought the boy to Eli 26And Khanna said to Eli: “I beg of you, my Lord, your soul is living, my Lord, I am the same woman who was standing with you here praying before LORD JEHOVAH for this boy 27And I prayed, and LORD JEHOVAH gave me my request which I asked from him 28Also I lent him to LORD JEHOVAH all the days that he lives, for he is borrowed by me from LORD JEHOVAH.” And they worshiped LORD JEHOVAH there.
