1 Samuel 2:5-11

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 2

5 Those who were full hire themselves out for bread, But those who were hungry cease to be hungry. Even the infertile woman gives birth to seven, But she who has many children languishes. 6 The LORD puts to death and makes alive; He brings down to Sheol and brings up. 7 The LORD makes poor and rich; He humbles, He also exalts. 8 He raises the poor from the dust, He lifts the needy from the garbage heap To seat them with nobles, And He gives them a seat of honor as an inheritance; For the pillars of the earth are the LORD’S, And He set the world on them. 9 He watches over the feet of His godly ones, But the wicked ones are silenced in darkness; For not by might shall a person prevail.
10 Those who contend with the LORD will be terrified; Against them He will thunder in the heavens, The LORD will judge the ends of the earth; And He will give strength to His king, And will exalt the horn of His anointed.'
11 Then Elkanah went to his home at Ramah. But the boy continued to attend to the service of the LORD before Eli the priest.
King James Version

Chapter 2

5 They that were full have hired out themselves for bread; and they that were hungry ceased: so that the barren hath born seven; and she that hath many children is waxed feeble. 6 The LORD killeth, and maketh alive: he bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up. 7 The LORD maketh poor, and maketh rich: he bringeth low, and lifteth up. 8 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD'S, and he hath set the world upon them. 9 He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail. 10 The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall he thunder upon them: the LORD shall judge the ends of the earth; and he shall give strength unto his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed.
11 And Elkanah went to Ramah to his house. And the child did minister unto the LORD before Eli the priest.
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 2

5 Those who are full hire themselves out for food, but those who are starving hunger no more. The woman who is childless gives birth to seven, but the woman with many sons pines away. 6 The Lord brings death and gives life; he sends some down to Sheol, and he raises others up. 7 The Lord brings poverty and gives wealth; he humbles and he exalts. 8 He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the trash heap. He seats them with noblemen and gives them a throne of honor. For the foundations of the earth are the Lord's; he has set the world on them. 9 He guards the steps of his faithful ones, but the wicked perish in darkness, for a person does not prevail by his own strength. 10 Those who oppose the Lord will be shattered; he will thunder in the heavens against them. The Lord will judge the ends of the earth. He will give power to his king; he will lift up the horn of his anointed.
11 Elkanah went home to Ramah, but the boy served the Lord in the presence of the priest Eli.
New Living Translation

Chapter 2

5 Those who were well fed are now starving, and those who were starving are now full. The childless woman now has seven children, and the woman with many children wastes away. 6 The LORD gives both death and life; he brings some down to the grave but raises others up. 7 The LORD makes some poor and others rich; he brings some down and lifts others up. 8 He lifts the poor from the dust and the needy from the garbage dump. He sets them among princes, placing them in seats of honor. For all the earth is the LORD's, and he has set the world in order.
9 'He will protect his faithful ones, but the wicked will disappear in darkness. No one will succeed by strength alone. 10 Those who fight against the LORD will be shattered. He thunders against them from heaven; the LORD judges throughout the earth. He gives power to his king; he increases the strength of his anointed one.'
11 Then Elkanah returned home to Ramah without Samuel. And the boy served the LORD by assisting Eli the priest.
English Standard Version

Chapter 2

5 Those who were full have hired themselves out for bread, but those who were hungry have ceased to hunger. The barren has borne seven, but she who has many children is forlorn. 6 The LORD kills and brings to life; he brings down to Sheol and raises up. 7 The LORD makes poor and makes rich; he brings low and he exalts. 8 He raises up the poor from the dust; he lifts the needy from the ash heap to make them sit with princes and inherit a seat of honor. For the pillars of the earth are the LORD’s, and on them he has set the world. 9 “He will guard the feet of his faithful ones, but the wicked shall be cut off in darkness, for not by might shall a man prevail. 10 The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken to pieces; against them he will thunder in heaven. The LORD will judge the ends of the earth; he will give strength to his king and exalt the horn of his anointed.” 11 Then Elkanah went home to Ramah. And the boy was ministering to the LORD in the presence of Eli the priest.

9 He will guard the feet of his faithful servants, but the wicked will be silenced in the place of darkness. 'It is not by strength that one prevails;
10 those who oppose the LORD will be broken. The Most High will thunder from heaven; the LORD will judge the ends of the earth. 'He will give strength to his king and exalt the horn of his anointed.'
11 Then Elkanah went home to Ramah, but the boy ministered before the LORD under Eli the priest.

Chapter 2

5 Los que estaban saciados se alquilan por pan, y dejan de tener hambre los que estaban hambrientos. Aun la estéril da a luz a siete, mas la que tiene muchos hijos languidece. 6 El SEÑOR da muerte y da vida ; hace bajar al Seol y hace subir. 7 El SEÑOR empobrece y enriquece ; humilla y también exalta. 8 Levanta del polvo al pobre, del muladar levanta al necesitado para hacerlos sentar con los príncipes, y heredar un sitio de honor; pues las columnas de la tierra son del SEÑOR, y sobre ellas ha colocado el mundo. 9 El guarda los pies de sus santos, mas los malvados son acallados en tinieblas, pues no por la fuerza ha de prevalecer el hombre. 10 Los que contienden con el SEÑOR serán quebrantados, El tronará desde los cielos contra ellos. El SEÑOR juzgará los confines de la tierra, a su rey dará fortaleza, y ensalzará el poder de su ungido.
11 Entonces Elcana se fue a Ramá, a su casa. Y el niño servía al SEÑOR delante del sacerdote Elí.

Chapter 2

5 Los que estaban saciados se alquilan por pan, Y dejan de tener hambre los que estaban hambrientos. Aun la estéril da a luz a siete, Pero la que tiene muchos hijos desfallece. 6 El SEÑOR da muerte y da vida; Hace bajar al Seol (región de los muertos) y hace subir. 7 El SEÑOR empobrece y enriquece; Humilla y también exalta. 8 Levanta del polvo al pobre, Del muladar levanta al necesitado Para hacerlos sentar con los príncipes, Y heredar un sitio de honor; Pues las columnas de la tierra son del SEÑOR, Y sobre ellas ha colocado el mundo. 9 El guarda los pies de Sus santos, Pero los malvados son acallados en tinieblas, Pues no por la fuerza ha de prevalecer el hombre. 10 Los que se oponen al SEÑOR serán quebrantados, El tronará desde los cielos contra ellos. El SEÑOR juzgará los confines de la tierra, Dará fortaleza a Su rey, Y ensalzará el poder de Su ungido.”
11 Entonces Elcana regresó a Ramá, a su casa. Y el niño Samuel se quedó sirviendo al SEÑOR delante del sacerdote Elí.

Chapter 2

5 Los que antes tenían comida de sobra se venden por un pedazo de pan; los que antes sufrían hambre ahora viven saciados. La estéril ha dado a luz siete veces, pero la que tenía muchos hijos languidece.
6 »Del SEÑOR vienen la muerte y la vida; él nos hace bajar al sepulcro, pero también nos levanta. 7 El SEÑOR da la riqueza y la pobreza; humilla, pero también enaltece.
8 Levanta del polvo al desvalido y saca del basurero al pobre para sentarlos en medio de príncipes y darles un trono esplendoroso. »Del SEÑOR son los fundamentos de la tierra; ¡sobre ellos afianzó el mundo! 9 Él guiará los pasos de sus fieles, pero los malvados se perderán entre las sombras. ¡Nadie triunfa por sus propias fuerzas!
10 »El SEÑOR destrozará a sus enemigos; desde el cielo lanzará truenos contra ellos. El SEÑOR juzgará los confines de la tierra, fortalecerá a su rey y enaltecerá el poder de su ungido».
11 Elcaná volvió a su casa en Ramá, pero el niño se quedó para servir al SEÑOR, bajo el cuidado del sacerdote Elí.

Chapter 2

5 Los saciados se alquilaron por pan, Y los hambrientos dejaron de tener hambre; Hasta la estéril ha dado a luz siete, Y la que tenía muchos hijos languidece. 6 Jehová mata, y él da vida; El hace descender al Seol, y hace subir. 7 Jehová empobrece, y él enriquece; Abate, y enaltece. 8 Él levanta del polvo al pobre, Y del muladar exalta al menesteroso, Para hacerle sentarse con príncipes y heredar un sitio de honor. Porque de Jehová son las columnas de la tierra, Y él afirmó sobre ellas el mundo. 9 Él guarda los pies de sus santos, Mas los impíos perecen en tinieblas; Porque nadie será fuerte por su propia fuerza. 10 Delante de Jehová serán quebrantados sus adversarios, Y sobre ellos tronará desde los cielos; Jehová juzgará los confines de la tierra, Dará poder a su Rey, Y exaltará el poderío de su Ungido.
11 Y Elcana se volvió a su casa en Ramá; y el niño ministraba a Jehová delante del sacerdote Elí.

Chapter 2

5 Los saciados se alquilaron por pan, y cesaron los hambrientos; hasta dar a luz siete la estéril, y la que tenía muchos hijos enfermó. 6 El SEÑOR mata, y él da vida; él hace descender al sepulcro, y hace subir. 7 El SEÑOR empobrece, y él enriquece; abate, y ensalza. 8 El levanta del polvo al pobre, y al menesteroso ensalza del estiércol, para asentarlo con los príncipes; y hace que tengan por heredad asiento de honra. Porque del SEÑOR son las columnas de la tierra, y él asentó sobre ellas el mundo. 9 El guarda los pies de sus santos, mas los impíos perecen en tinieblas; porque nadie será valiente por su propia fuerza. 10 SEÑOR, serán quebrantados sus adversarios; y sobre ellos tronará desde los cielos. El SEÑOR juzgará los términos de la tierra, y dará fortaleza a su Rey, y ensalzará el cuerno de su Mesías. 11 Y Elcana se volvió a su casa en Ramá; y el niño ministraba al SEÑOR delante del sacerdote Elí.
