1 Samuel 1:20-28

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 1

20 It came about in due time, after Hannah had conceived, that she gave birth to a son; and she named him Samuel, saying, 'Because I have asked for him of the LORD.'
21 Then the man Elkanah went up with all his household to offer to the LORD the yearly sacrifice and to pay his vow. 22 But Hannah did not go up, for she said to her husband, 'I will not go until the child is weaned; then I will bring him, so that he may appear before the LORD and stay there for life.' 23 Elkanah her husband said to her, 'Do what seems best to you. Stay until you have weaned him; only may the LORD confirm His word.' So the woman stayed and nursed her son until she weaned him. 24 Now when she had weaned him, she took him up with her, with a three-year-old bull, one ephah of flour, and a jug of wine, and brought him to the house of the LORD in Shiloh, although the child was young. 25 Then they slaughtered the bull, and brought the boy to Eli. 26 And she said, 'Pardon me, my lord! As your soul lives, my lord, I am the woman who stood here beside you, praying to the LORD. 27 For this boy I prayed, and the LORD has granted me my request which I asked of Him. 28 So I have also dedicated him to the LORD; as long as he lives he is dedicated to the LORD.' And he worshiped the LORD there.
King James Version

Chapter 1

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.

Chapter 1

20 After some time, Hannah conceived and gave birth to a son. She named him Samuel, because she said, "I requested him from the Lord."
21 When Elkanah and all his household went up to make the annual sacrifice and his vow offering to the Lord, 22 Hannah did not go and explained to her husband, "After the child is weaned, I'll take him to appear in the Lord's presence and to stay there permanently."
23 Her husband, Elkanah, replied, "Do what you think is best, and stay here until you've weaned him. May the Lord confirm your word." So Hannah stayed there and nursed her son until she weaned him. 24 When she had weaned him, she took him with her to Shiloh, as well as a three-year-old bull, half a bushel of flour, and a clay jar of wine. Though the boy was still young, she took him to the Lord's house at Shiloh. 25 Then they slaughtered the bull and brought the boy to Eli.
26 "Please, my lord," she said, "as surely as you live, my lord, I am the woman who stood here beside you praying to the Lord. 27 I prayed for this boy, and since the Lord gave me what I asked him for, 28 I now give the boy to the Lord. For as long as he lives, he is given to the Lord." Then he worshiped the Lord there.

Chapter 1

20 and in due time she gave birth to a son. She named him Samuel, for she said, 'I asked the LORD for him.'
21 The next year Elkanah and his family went on their annual trip to offer a sacrifice to the LORD. 22 But Hannah did not go. She told her husband, 'Wait until the boy is weaned. Then I will take him to the Tabernacle and leave him there with the LORD permanently.'
23 'Whatever you think is best,' Elkanah agreed. 'Stay here for now, and may the LORD help you keep your promise.' So she stayed home and nursed the boy until he was weaned.
24 When the child was weaned, Hannah took him to the Tabernacle in Shiloh. They brought along a three-year-old bull for the sacrifice and a basket of flour and some wine. 25 After sacrificing the bull, they brought the boy to Eli. 26 'Sir, do you remember me?' Hannah asked. 'I am the woman who stood here several years ago praying to the LORD. 27 I asked the LORD to give me this boy, and he has granted my request. 28 Now I am giving him to the LORD, and he will belong to the LORD his whole life.' And they worshiped the LORD there.

Chapter 1

20 So in the course of time Hannah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Samuel, saying, 'Because I asked the LORD for him.'
21 When her husband Elkanah went up with all his family to offer the annual sacrifice to the LORD and to fulfill his vow, 22 Hannah did not go. She said to her husband, 'After the boy is weaned, I will take him and present him before the LORD, and he will live there always.'
23 Do what seems best to you,' her husband Elkanah told her. 'Stay here until you have weaned him; only may the LORD make good his word.' So the woman stayed at home and nursed her son until she had weaned him.
24 After he was weaned, she took the boy with her, young as he was, along with a three-year-old bull, an ephah of flour and a skin of wine, and brought him to the house of the LORD at Shiloh. 25 When the bull had been sacrificed, they brought the boy to Eli, 26 and she said to him, 'Pardon me, my lord. As surely as you live, I am the woman who stood here beside you praying to the LORD. 27 I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. 28 So now I give him to the LORD. For his whole life he will be given over to the LORD.' And he worshiped the LORD there.

Chapter 1

20 Y a su debido tiempo, después de haber concebido, Ana dio a luz un hijo, y le puso por nombre Samuel, diciendo: Porque se lo he pedido al SEÑOR.
21 Subió el varón Elcana con toda su casa a ofrecer al SEÑOR el sacrificio anual y a pagar su voto, 22 pero Ana no subió, pues dijo a su marido: No subiré hasta que el niño sea destetado; entonces lo llevaré para que se presente delante del SEÑOR y se quede allí para siempre. 23 Y Elcana su marido le dijo: Haz lo que mejor te parezca. Quédate hasta que lo hayas destetado; solamente confirme el SEÑOR su palabra. La mujer se quedó y crió a su hijo hasta que lo destetó. 24 Después de haberlo destetado, lo llevó consigo, con un novillo de tres años, un efa de harina y un odre de vino, y lo trajo a la casa del SEÑOR en Silo, aunque el niño era pequeño. 25 Entonces sacrificaron el novillo, y trajeron el niño a Elí. 26 Y ella dijo: ¡Oh señor mío! Vive tu alma, señor mío, yo soy la mujer que estuvo aquí junto a ti orando al SEÑOR. 27 Por este niño oraba, y el SEÑOR me ha concedido la petición que le hice. 28 Por lo cual yo también lo he dedicado al SEÑOR; todos los días de su vida estará dedicado al SEÑOR. Y adoró allí al SEÑOR.

También llevó un novillo de tres años, un efa (22 litros) de harina y un odre de vino.
25 Entonces sacrificaron el novillo, y trajeron el niño a Elí. 26 “¡Oh señor mío!” dijo Ana. “Vive su alma, señor mío.

Chapter 1

20 Ana concibió y, pasado un año, dio a luz un hijo y le puso por nombre Samuel, pues dijo: «Al SEÑOR se lo pedí».
21 Cuando Elcaná volvió a salir con toda su familia para cumplir su promesa y ofrecer su sacrificio anual al SEÑOR,
22 Ana no lo acompañó. ?No iré hasta que el niño sea destetado —le explicó a su esposo—. Entonces lo llevaré para dedicarlo al SEÑOR, y allí se quedará el resto de su vida.
23 ?Bien, haz lo que te parezca mejor —respondió su esposo Elcaná—. Quédate hasta que lo destetes, con tal de que el SEÑOR cumpla su palabra. Así pues, Ana se quedó en su casa y crió a su hijo hasta que lo destetó.
24 Cuando dejó de amamantarlo, salió con el niño, a pesar de ser tan pequeño, y lo llevó a la casa del SEÑOR en Siló. También llevó un becerro de tres años, una medida de harina y un odre de vino. 25 Luego sacrificaron el becerro y presentaron el niño a Elí. 26 Dijo Ana: «Mi señor, tan cierto como que usted vive, le juro que yo soy la mujer que estuvo aquí a su lado orando al SEÑOR. 27 Este es el niño que yo le pedí al SEÑOR, y él me lo concedió. 28 Ahora yo, por mi parte, se lo entrego al SEÑOR. Mientras el niño viva, estará dedicado a él». Entonces Elí se postró allí ante el SEÑOR.

Chapter 1

20 Aconteció que al cumplirse el tiempo, después de haber concebido Ana, dio a luz un hijo, y le puso por nombre Samuel, diciendo: Por cuanto lo pedí a Jehová.
21 Después subió el varón Elcana con toda su familia, para ofrecer a Jehová el sacrificio acostumbrado y su voto. 22 Pero Ana no subió, sino dijo a su marido: Yo no subiré hasta que el niño sea destetado, para que lo lleve y sea presentado delante de Jehová, y se quede allá para siempre. 23 Y Elcana su marido le respondió: Haz lo que bien te parezca; quédate hasta que lo destetes; solamente que cumpla Jehová su palabra. Y se quedó la mujer, y crió a su hijo hasta que lo destetó. 24 Después que lo hubo destetado, lo llevó consigo, con tres becerros, un efa de harina, y una vasija de vino, y lo trajo a la casa de Jehová en Silo; y el niño era pequeño. 25 Y matando el becerro, trajeron el niño a Elí. 26 Y ella dijo: ¡Oh, señor mío! Vive tu alma, señor mío, yo soy aquella mujer que estuvo aquí junto a ti orando a Jehová. 27 Por este niño oraba, y Jehová me dio lo que le pedí.
28 Yo, pues, lo dedico también a Jehová; todos los días que viva, será de Jehová. Y adoró allí a Jehová.

Chapter 1

20 Y fue que al pasar el tiempo, Ana concibió, y dio a luz un hijo, y le puso por nombre Samuel (demandado de Dios), diciendo: Por cuanto lo demandé al SEÑOR. 21 Después subió el varón Elcana, con toda su familia, a sacrificar al SEÑOR el sacrificio acostumbrado, y su voto. 22 Mas Ana no subió, sino dijo a su marido: Yo no subiré hasta que el niño sea destetado; para que lo lleve y sea presentado delante del SEÑOR, y se quede allá para siempre. 23 Y Elcana su marido le respondió: Haz lo que bien te pareciere; quédate hasta que lo destetes; solamente el SEÑOR cumpla su palabra. Y se quedó la mujer, y crió su hijo hasta que lo destetó. 24 Y después que lo hubo destetado, lo llevó consigo, con tres becerros, un efa de harina, y un odre de vino, y lo trajo a la Casa del SEÑOR en Silo; y el niño era aún pequeño. 25 Y matando el becerro, trajeron el niño a Elí. 26 Y ella dijo: ¡Ruego señor mío! Como vive tu alma, señor mío, yo soy aquella mujer que estuvo aquí junto a ti orando al SEÑOR. 27 Por este niño oraba, y el SEÑOR me dio lo que le pedí. 28 Yo, pues, le vuelvo también al SEÑOR; todos los días que viviere, será del SEÑOR. Y adoró allí al SEÑOR.
