1 Samuel 2:17-23

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 2

17 And so the sin of the young men was very great before the LORD, for the men treated the offering of the LORD disrespectfully.
18 Now Samuel was ministering before the LORD, as a boy wearing a linen ephod. 19 And his mother would make for him a little robe and bring it up to him from year to year when she would come up with her husband to offer the yearly sacrifice. 20 Then Eli would bless Elkanah and his wife, and say, 'May the LORD give you children from this woman in place of the one she requested of the LORD.' And they went to their own home.
21 The LORD indeed visited Hannah, and she conceived and gave birth to three sons and two daughters. And the boy Samuel grew up before the LORD.
22 Now Eli was very old; and he heard about everything that his sons were doing to all Israel, and that they slept with the women who served at the doorway of the tent of meeting. 23 So he said to them, 'Why are you doing such things as these, the evil things that I hear from all these people?
King James Version

Chapter 2

17 Wherefore the sin of the young men was very great before the LORD: for men abhorred the offering of the LORD. 18 But Samuel ministered before the LORD, being a child, girded with a linen ephod. 19 Moreover his mother made him a little coat, and brought it to him from year to year, when she came up with her husband to offer the yearly sacrifice. 20 And Eli blessed Elkanah and his wife, and said, The LORD give thee seed of this woman for the loan which is lent to the LORD. And they went unto their own home. 21 And the LORD visited Hannah, so that she conceived, and bare three sons and two daughters. And the child Samuel grew before the LORD. 22 Now Eli was very old, and heard all that his sons did unto all Israel; and how they lay with the women that assembled at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. 23 And he said unto them, Why do ye such things? for I hear of your evil dealings by all this people.

Chapter 2

17 So the servants' sin was very severe in the presence of the Lord, because the men treated the Lord's offering with contempt.
18 Samuel served in the Lord's presence--this mere boy was dressed in the linen ephod. 19 Each year his mother made him a little robe and took it to him when she went with her husband to offer the annual sacrifice. 20 Eli would bless Elkanah and his wife: "May the Lord give you children by this woman in place of the one she has given to the Lord." Then they would go home.
21 The Lord paid attention to Hannah's need, and she conceived and gave birth to three sons and two daughters. Meanwhile, the boy Samuel grew up in the presence of the Lord.
22 Now Eli was very old. He heard about everything his sons were doing to all Israel and how they were sleeping with the women who served at the entrance to the tent of meeting. 23 He said to them, "Why are you doing these things? I have heard about your evil actions from all these people.
New Living Translation

Chapter 2

17 So the sin of these young men was very serious in the LORD's sight, for they treated the LORD's offerings with contempt.
18 But Samuel, though he was only a boy, served the LORD. He wore a linen garment like that of a priest. 19 Each year his mother made a small coat for him and brought it to him when she came with her husband for the sacrifice. 20 Before they returned home, Eli would bless Elkanah and his wife and say, 'May the LORD give you other children to take the place of this one she gave to the LORD.' 21 And the LORD gave Hannah three sons and two daughters. Meanwhile, Samuel grew up in the presence of the LORD.
22 Now Eli was very old, but he was aware of what his sons were doing to the people of Israel. He knew, for instance, that his sons were seducing the young women who assisted at the entrance of the Tabernacle. 23 Eli said to them, 'I have been hearing reports from all the people about the wicked things you are doing. Why do you keep sinning?
English Standard Version

Chapter 2

17 Thus the sin of the young men was very great in the sight of the LORD, for the men treated the offering of the LORD with contempt.
18 Samuel was ministering before the LORD, a boy clothed with a linen ephod. 19 And his mother used to make for him a little robe and take it to him each year when she went up with her husband to offer the yearly sacrifice. 20 Then Eli would bless Elkanah and his wife, and say, “May the LORD give you children by this woman for the petition she asked of the LORD.” So then they would return to their home.
21 Indeed the LORD visited Hannah, and she conceived and bore three sons and two daughters. And the boy Samuel grew in the presence of the LORD.
22 Now Eli was very old, and he kept hearing all that his sons were doing to all Israel, and how they lay with the women who were serving at the entrance to the tent of meeting. 23 And he said to them, “Why do you do such things? For I hear of your evil dealings from all these people.

Chapter 2

17 El pecado de los jóvenes era muy grande delante del SEÑOR, porque los hombres menospreciaban la ofrenda del SEÑOR.
18 Samuel siendo niño, ministraba delante del SEÑOR, usando un efod de lino. 19 Su madre le hacía una túnica pequeña cada año, y se la traía cuando subía con su marido a ofrecer el sacrificio anual. 20 Entonces Elí bendecía a Elcana y a su mujer, y decía : Que el SEÑOR te dé hijos de esta mujer en lugar del que ella dedicó al SEÑOR. Y regresaban a su casa. 21 Y el SEÑOR visitó a Ana, y ella concibió y dio a luz tres hijos y dos hijas. Y el niño Samuel crecía delante del SEÑOR.
22 Elí era ya muy anciano; oyó todo lo que sus hijos estaban haciendo a todo Israel, y cómo se acostaban con las mujeres que servían a la entrada de la tienda de reunión, 23 y les dijo: ¿Por qué hacéis estas cosas, las cosas malas de que oigo hablar a todo este pueblo?

Chapter 2

17 Así que el pecado de estos jóvenes era gravísimo a los ojos del SEÑOR, pues trataban con desprecio las ofrendas que le pertenecían.
18 El niño Samuel, por su parte, vestido con un efod de lino, seguía sirviendo en la presencia del SEÑOR. 19 Cada año su madre le hacía una pequeña túnica, y se la llevaba cuando iba con su esposo para ofrecer su sacrificio anual. 20 Elí entonces bendecía a Elcaná y a su esposa, diciendo: «Que el SEÑOR te conceda hijos de esta mujer, a cambio del niño que ella pidió para dedicárselo al SEÑOR». Luego regresaban a su casa.
21 El SEÑOR bendijo a Ana, de manera que ella concibió y dio a luz tres hijos y dos hijas. Durante ese tiempo, Samuel crecía en la presencia del SEÑOR.
22 Elí, que ya era muy anciano, se enteró de todo lo que sus hijos le estaban haciendo al pueblo de Israel, incluso de que se acostaban con las mujeres que servían a la entrada del santuario. 23 Les dijo: «¿Por qué se comportan así? Todo el pueblo me habla de su mala conducta.

Chapter 2

17 Era, pues, muy grande delante de Jehová el pecado de los jóvenes; porque los hombres menospreciaban las ofrendas de Jehová.
18 Y el joven Samuel ministraba en la presencia de Jehová, vestido de un efod de lino. 19 Y le hacía su madre una túnica pequeña y se la traía cada año, cuando subía con su marido para ofrecer el sacrificio acostumbrado. 20 Y Elí bendijo a Elcana y a su mujer, diciendo: Jehová te dé hijos de esta mujer en lugar del que pidió a Jehová. Y se volvieron a su casa.
21 Y visitó Jehová a Ana, y ella concibió, y dio a luz tres hijos y dos hijas. Y el joven Samuel crecía delante de Jehová.
22 Pero Elí era muy viejo; y oía de todo lo que sus hijos hacían con todo Israel, y cómo dormían con las mujeres que velaban a la puerta del tabernáculo de reunión. 23 Y les dijo: ¿Por qué hacéis cosas semejantes? Porque yo oigo de todo este pueblo vuestros malos procederes.

Y se volvieron a su casa. 21 Y visitó el SEÑOR a Ana, y concibió, y dio a luz tres hijos, y dos hijas. Y el joven Samuel crecía delante del SEÑOR. 22 Elí empero era muy viejo, y oía todo lo que sus hijos hacían a todo Israel, y cómo dormían con las mujeres que velaban a la puerta del tabernáculo del testimonio. 23 Y les dijo: ¿Por qué hacéis cosas semejantes? Porque yo oigo de todo este pueblo vuestros malos procederes.
