1 Samuel 1:20

Living Bible

19-20 The entire family was up early the next morning and went to the Tabernacle to worship the Lord once more. Then they returned home to Ramah, and when Elkanah slept with Hannah, the Lord remembered her petition; in the process of time, a baby boy was born to her. She named him Samuel (meaning “asked of God”)[a] because, as she said, “I asked the Lord for him.”

1 Samuel 1:26-28

Living Bible

26 “Sir, do you remember me?” Hannah asked him. “I am the woman who stood here that time praying to the Lord! 27 I asked him to give me this child, and he has given me my request; 28 and now I am giving him to the Lord for as long as he lives.” So she left him there at the Tabernacle for the Lord to use.

1 Samuel 2:1-10

Living Bible

2 This was Hannah’s prayer:

“How I rejoice in the Lord!

How he has blessed me!

Now I have an answer for my enemies,

For the Lord has solved my problem.

How I rejoice!

2 No one is as holy as the Lord!

There is no other God,

Nor any Rock like our God.

3 Quit acting so proud and arrogant!

The Lord knows what you have done,

And he will judge your deeds.

4 Those who were mighty are mighty no more!

Those who were weak are now strong.

5 Those who were well are now starving;

Those who were starving are fed.

The barren woman now has seven children;

She with many children has no more!

6 The Lord kills,

The Lord gives life.

7 Some he causes to be poor

And others to be rich.

He cuts one down

And lifts another up.

8 He lifts the poor from the dust—

Yes, from a pile of ashes—

And treats them as princes

Sitting in the seats of honor.

For all the earth is the Lord’s

And he has set the world in order.

9 He will protect his godly ones,

But the wicked shall be silenced in darkness.

No one shall succeed by strength alone.

10 Those who fight against the Lord shall be broken;

He thunders against them from heaven.

He judges throughout the earth.

He gives mighty strength to his king,

And gives great glory to his anointed one.”
