1 Samuel 2 - Versions
1 Samuel 2 Text (WEB)
  1. Hannah prayed, and said: "My heart exults in Yahweh! My horn is exalted in Yahweh. My mouth is enlarged over my enemies, because I rejoice in your salvation.
  2. There is no one as holy as Yahweh, For there is no one besides you, nor is there any rock like our God.
  3. "Talk no more so exceeding proudly. Don't let arrogance come out of your mouth, For Yahweh is a God of knowledge. By him actions are weighed.
  4. "The bows of the mighty men are broken. Those who stumbled are armed with strength.
  5. Those who were full have hired themselves out for bread. Those who were hungry have ceased [to hunger]. Yes, the barren has borne seven. She who has many children languishes.
  6. "Yahweh kills, and makes alive. He brings down to Sheol, and brings up.
  7. Yahweh makes poor, and makes rich. He brings low, he also lifts up.
  8. He raises up the poor out of the dust. He lifts up the needy from the dunghill, To make them sit with princes, and inherit the throne of glory. For the pillars of the earth are Yahweh's. He has set the world on them.
  9. He will keep the feet of his holy ones, but the wicked shall be put to silence in darkness; for no man shall prevail by strength.
  10. Those who strive with Yahweh shall be broken to pieces. He will thunder against them in the sky. "Yahweh will judge the ends of the earth. He will give strength to his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed."
  11. Elkanah went to Ramah to his house. The child did minister to Yahweh before Eli the priest.
  12. Now the sons of Eli were base men; they didn't know Yahweh.
  13. The custom of the priests with the people was that when any man offered sacrifice, the priest's servant came, while the flesh was boiling, with a fork of three teeth in his hand;
  14. and he struck it into the pan, or kettle, or caldron, or pot; all that the fork brought up the priest took therewith. So they did in Shiloh to all the Israelites who came there.
  15. Yes, before they burnt the fat, the priest's servant came, and said to the man who sacrificed, "Give meat to roast for the priest; for he will not accept boiled meat from you, but raw."
  16. If the man said to him, "Let the fat be burned first, and then take as much as your soul desires;" then he would say, "No, but you shall give it to me now; and if not, I will take it by force."
  17. The sin of the young men was very great before Yahweh; for the men despised the offering of Yahweh.
  18. But Samuel ministered before Yahweh, being a child, clothed with a linen ephod.
  19. Moreover his mother made him a little robe, and brought it to him from year to year, when she came up with her husband to offer the yearly sacrifice.
  20. Eli blessed Elkanah and his wife, and said, "Yahweh give you seed of this woman for the petition which was asked of Yahweh." They went to their own home.
  21. Yahweh visited Hannah, and she conceived, and bore three sons and two daughters. The child Samuel grew before Yahweh.
  22. Now Eli was very old; and he heard all that his sons did to all Israel, and how that they lay with the women who served at the door of the Tent of Meeting.
  23. He said to them, "Why do you do such things? for I hear of your evil dealings from all this people.
  24. No, my sons; for it is no good report that I hear: you make Yahweh's people disobey.
  25. If one man sin against another, God shall judge him; but if a man sin against Yahweh, who shall entreat for him?" Notwithstanding, they didn't listen to the voice of their father, because Yahweh was minded to kill them.
  26. The child Samuel grew on, and increased in favor both with Yahweh, and also with men.
  27. A man of God came to Eli, and said to him, "Thus says Yahweh, 'Did I reveal myself to the house of your father, when they were in Egypt [in bondage] to Pharaoh's house?
  28. Did I choose him out of all the tribes of Israel to be my priest, to go up to my altar, to burn incense, to wear an ephod before me? Did I give to the house of your father all the offerings of the children of Israel made by fire?
  29. Why do you kick at my sacrifice and at my offering, which I have commanded in [my] habitation, and honor your sons above me, to make yourselves fat with the best of all the offerings of Israel my people?'
  30. "Therefore Yahweh, the God of Israel, says, 'I said indeed that your house, and the house of your father, should walk before me forever.' But now Yahweh says, 'Be it far from me; for those who honor me I will honor, and those who despise me shall be lightly esteemed.
  31. Behold, the days come, that I will cut off your arm, and the arm of your father's house, that there shall not be an old man in your house.
  32. You shall see the affliction of [my] habitation, in all the wealth which [God] shall give Israel; and there shall not be an old man in your house forever.
  33. The man of yours, [whom] I shall not cut off from my altar, [shall be] to consume your eyes, and to grieve your heart; and all the increase of your house shall die in the flower of their age.
  34. "'This shall be the sign to you, that shall come on your two sons, on Hophni and Phinehas: in one day they shall both die.
  35. I will raise me up a faithful priest, that shall do according to that which is in my heart and in my mind. I will build him a sure house; and he shall walk before my anointed forever.
  36. It shall happen, that everyone who is left in your house shall come and bow down to him for a piece of silver and a loaf of bread, and shall say, "Please put me into one of the priests' offices, that I may eat a morsel of bread."'"

  13. ומשפט הכהנים את־העם כל־איש זבח זבח ובא נער הכהן כבשל הבשר והמזלג שלש־השנים בידו׃
  14. והכה בכיור או בדוד או בקלחת או בפרור כל אשר יעלה המזלג יקח הכהן בו ככה יעשו לכל־ישראל הבאים שם בשלה׃
  15. גם בטרם יקטרון את־החלב ובא נער הכהן ואמר לאיש הזבח תנה בשר לצלות לכהן ולא־יקח ממך בשר מבשל כי אם־חי׃
  16. ויאמר אליו האיש קטר יקטירון כיום החלב וקח־לך כאשר תאוה נפשך ואמר כי עתה תתן ואם־לא לקחתי בחזקה׃
  17. ותהי חטאת הנערים גדולה מאד את־פני יהוה כי נאצו האנשים את מנחת יהוה׃
  18. ושמואל משרת את־פני יהוה נער חגור אפוד בד׃
  19. ומעיל קטן תעשה־לו אמו והעלתה לו מימים ימימה בעלותה את־אישה לזבח את־זבח הימים׃
  20. וברך עלי את־אלקנה ואת־אשתו ואמר ישם יהוה לך זרע מן־האשה הזאת תחת השאלה אשר שאל ליהוה והלכו למקמו׃
  21. כי־פקד יהוה את־חנה ותהר ותלד שלשה־בנים ושתי בנות ויגדל הנער שמואל עם־יהוה׃ ס

  24. אל בני כי לוא־טובה השמעה אשר אנכי שמע מעברים עם־יהוה׃
  25. אם־יחטא איש לאיש ופללו אלהים ואם ליהוה יחטא־איש מי יתפלל־לו ולא ישמעו לקול אביהם כי־חפץ יהוה להמיתם׃
  26. והנער שמואל הלך וגדל וטוב גם עם־יהוה וגם עם־אנשים׃ ס
  27. ויבא איש־אלהים אל־עלי ויאמר אליו כה אמר יהוה הנגלה נגליתי אל־בית אביך בהיותם במצרים לבית פרעה׃
  28. ובחר אתו מכל־שבטי ישראל לי לכהן לעלות על־מזבחי להקטיר קטרת לשאת אפוד לפני ואתנה לבית אביך את־כל־אשי בני ישראל׃
  29. למה תבעטו בזבחי ובמנחתי אשר צויתי מעון ותכבד את־בניך ממני להבריאכם מראשית כל־מנחת ישראל לעמי׃
  30. לכן נאם־יהוה אלהי ישראל אמור אמרתי ביתך ובית אביך יתהלכו לפני עד־עולם ועתה נאם־יהוה חלילה לי כי־מכבדי אכבד ובזי יקלו׃
  31. הנה ימים באים וגדעתי את־זרעך ואת־זרע בית אביך מהיות זקן בביתך׃
  32. והבטת צר מעון בכל אשר־ייטיב את־ישראל ולא־יהיה זקן בביתך כל־הימים׃
  33. ואיש לא־אכרית לך מעם מזבחי לכלות את־עיניך ולאדיב את־נפשך וכל־מרבית ביתך ימותו אנשים׃
  34. וזה־לך האות אשר יבא אל־שני בניך אל־חפני ופינחס ביום אחד ימותו שניהם׃
  35. והקימתי לי כהן נאמן כאשר בלבבי ובנפשי יעשה ובניתי לו בית נאמן והתהלך לפני־משיחי כל־הימים׃
  36. והיה כל־הנותר בביתך יבוא להשתחות לו לאגורת כסף וככר־לחם ואמר ספחני נא אל־אחת הכהנות לאכל פת־לחם׃ ס

  1. και ειπεν εστερεωθη η καρδια μου εν κυριω υψωθη κερας μου εν θεω μου επλατυνθη επι εχθρους το στομα μου ευφρανθην εν σωτηρια
  2. οτι ουκ εστιν αγιος ως κυριος και ουκ εστιν δικαιος ως ο θεος ημων ουκ εστιν αγιος πλην
  3. μη καυχασθε και μη λαλειτε υψηλα μη εξελθατω μεγαλορρημοσυνη εκ του στοματος υμων οτι θεος γνωσεων κυριος και θεος ετοιμαζων επιτηδευματα
  4. τοξον δυνατων ησθενησεν και ασθενουντες περιεζωσαντο
  5. πληρεις αρτων ηλαττωθησαν και οι πεινωντες παρηκαν γην οτι στειρα ετεκεν επτα και η πολλη εν τεκνοις
  6. κυριος θανατοι και ζωογονει καταγει εις αδου και
  7. κυριος πτωχιζει και πλουτιζει ταπεινοι και
  8. ανιστα απο γης πενητα και απο κοπριας εγειρει πτωχον καθισαι μετα δυναστων λαων και θρονον δοξης κατακληρονομων
  9. διδους ευχην τω ευχομενω και ευλογησεν ετη δικαιου οτι ουκ εν ισχυι δυνατος
  10. κυριος ασθενη ποιησει αντιδικον αυτου κυριος αγιος μη καυχασθω ο φρονιμος εν τη φρονησει αυτου και μη καυχασθω ο δυνατος εν τη δυναμει αυτου και μη καυχασθω ο πλουσιος εν τω πλουτω αυτου αλλ' η εν τουτω καυχασθω ο καυχωμενος συνιειν και γινωσκειν τον κυριον και ποιειν κριμα και δικαιοσυνην εν μεσω της γης κυριος ανεβη εις ουρανους και εβροντησεν αυτος κρινει ακρα γης και διδωσιν ισχυν τοις βασιλευσιν ημων και υψωσει κερας χριστου
  11. και κατελιπον αυτον εκει ενωπιον κυριου και απηλθον εις αρμαθαιμ και το παιδαριον ην λειτουργων τω προσωπω κυριου ενωπιον ηλι του
  12. και οι υιοι ηλι του ιερεως υιοι λοιμοι ουκ ειδοτες τον
  13. και το δικαιωμα του ιερεως παρα του λαου παντος του θυοντος και ηρχετο το παιδαριον του ιερεως ως αν ηψηθη το κρεας και κρεαγρα τριοδους εν τη χειρι
  14. και επαταξεν αυτην εις τον λεβητα τον μεγαν η εις το χαλκιον η εις την κυθραν παν ο εαν ανεβη εν τη κρεαγρα ελαμβανεν εαυτω ο ιερευς κατα ταδε εποιουν παντι ισραηλ τοις ερχομενοις θυσαι κυριω εν
  15. και πριν θυμιαθηναι το στεαρ ηρχετο το παιδαριον του ιερεως και ελεγεν τω ανδρι τω θυοντι δος κρεας οπτησαι τω ιερει και ου μη λαβω παρα σου εφθον εκ του
  16. και ελεγεν ο ανηρ ο θυων θυμιαθητω πρωτον ως καθηκει το στεαρ και λαβε σεαυτω εκ παντων ων επιθυμει η ψυχη σου και ειπεν ουχι οτι νυν δωσεις και εαν μη λημψομαι
  17. και ην η αμαρτια των παιδαριων ενωπιον κυριου μεγαλη σφοδρα οτι ηθετουν την θυσιαν
  18. και σαμουηλ ην λειτουργων ενωπιον κυριου παιδαριον περιεζωσμενον εφουδ
  19. και διπλοιδα μικραν εποιησεν αυτω η μητηρ αυτου και ανεφερεν αυτω εξ ημερων εις ημερας εν τω αναβαινειν αυτην μετα του ανδρος αυτης θυσαι την θυσιαν των
  20. και ευλογησεν ηλι τον ελκανα και την γυναικα αυτου λεγων αποτεισαι σοι κυριος σπερμα εκ της γυναικος ταυτης αντι του χρεους ου εχρησας τω κυριω και απηλθεν ο ανθρωπος εις τον τοπον
  21. και επεσκεψατο κυριος την ανναν και ετεκεν ετι τρεις υιους και δυο θυγατερας και εμεγαλυνθη το παιδαριον σαμουηλ ενωπιον
  22. και ηλι πρεσβυτης σφοδρα και ηκουσεν α εποιουν οι υιοι αυτου τοις υιοις
  23. και ειπεν αυτοις ινα τι ποιειτε κατα το ρημα τουτο ο εγω ακουω εκ στοματος παντος του λαου
  24. μη τεκνα οτι ουκ αγαθη η ακοη ην εγω ακουω μη ποιειτε ουτως οτι ουκ αγαθαι αι ακοαι ας εγω ακουω του μη δουλευειν λαον
  25. εαν αμαρτανων αμαρτη ανηρ εις ανδρα και προσευξονται υπερ αυτου προς κυριον και εαν τω κυριω αμαρτη τις προσευξεται υπερ αυτου και ουκ ηκουον της φωνης του πατρος αυτων οτι βουλομενος εβουλετο κυριος διαφθειραι
  26. και το παιδαριον σαμουηλ επορευετο και εμεγαλυνετο και αγαθον και μετα κυριου και μετα
  27. και ηλθεν ανθρωπος θεου προς ηλι και ειπεν ταδε λεγει κυριος αποκαλυφθεις απεκαλυφθην προς οικον πατρος σου οντων αυτων εν γη αιγυπτω δουλων τω οικω

1 Samuel 2 Text (Latin)
  1. Exultavit cor meum in Domino, et exaltatum est cornu meum in Deo meo : dilatatum est os meum super inimicos meos : quia lætata sum in salutari tuo.
  2. Non est sanctus, ut est Dominus, neque enim est alius extra te, et non est fortis sicut Deus noster.
  3. Nolite multiplicare loqui sublimia gloriantes : recedant vetera de ore vestro : quia Deus scientiarum, Dominus est, et ipsi præparantur cogitationes.
  4. Arcus fortium superatus est, et infirmi accincti sunt robore.
  5. Repleti prius, pro panibus se locaverunt : et famelici saturati sunt, donec sterilis peperit plurimos : et quæ multos habebat filios, infirmata est.
  6. Dominus mortificat et vivificat, deducit ad inferos et reducit.
  7. Dominus pauperem facit et ditat, humiliat et sublevat.
  8. Suscitat de pulvere egenum, et de stercore elevat pauperem : ut sedeat cum principibus, et solium gloriæ teneat. Domini enim sunt cardines terræ, et posuit super eos orbem.
  9. Pedes sanctorum suorum servabit, et impii in tenebris conticescent : quia non in fortitudine sua roborabitur vir.
  10. Dominum formidabunt adversarii ejus : et super ipsos in cælis tonabit : Dominus judicabit fines terræ, et dabit imperium regi suo, et sublimabit cornu Christi sui.
  11. Et abiit Elcana Ramatha, in domum suam : puer autem erat minister in conspectu Domini ante faciem Heli sacerdotis.
  12. Porro filii Heli, filii Belial, nescientes Dominum,
  13. neque officium sacerdotum ad populum : sed quicumque immolasset victimam, veniebat puer sacerdotis, dum coquerentur carnes, et habebat fuscinulam tridentem in manu sua,
  14. et mittebat eam in lebetem, vel in caldariam, aut in ollam, sive in cacabum : et omne quod levabat fuscinula, tollebat sacerdos sibi : sic faciebant universo Israëli venientium in Silo.
  15. Etiam antequam adolerent adipem, veniebat puer sacerdotis, et dicebat immolanti : Da mihi carnem, ut coquam sacerdoti : non enim accipiam a te carnem coctam, sed crudam.
  16. Dicebatque illi immolans : Incendatur primum juxta morem hodie adeps, et tolle tibi quantumcumque desiderat anima tua. Qui respondens aiebat ei : Nequaquam : nunc enim dabis, alioquin tollam vi.
  17. Erat ergo peccatum puerorum grande nimis coram Domino : quia retrahebant homines a sacrificio Domini.
  18. Samuel autem ministrabat ante faciem Domini, puer, accinctus ephod lineo.
  19. Et tunicam parvam faciebat ei mater sua, quam afferebat statutis diebus, ascendens cum viro suo, ut immolaret hostiam solemnem.
  20. Et benedixit Heli Elcanæ et uxori ejus : dixitque ei : Reddat tibi Dominus semen de muliere hac, pro fœnore quod commodasti Domino. Et abierunt in locum suum.
  21. Visitavit ergo Dominus Annam, et concepit, et peperit tres filios, et duas filias : et magnificatus est puer Samuel apud Dominum.
  22. Heli autem erat senex valde, et audivit omnia quæ faciebant filii sui universo Israëli : et quomodo dormiebant cum mulieribus quæ observabant ad ostium tabernaculi :
  23. et dixit eis : Quare facitis res hujuscemodi, quas ego audio, res pessimas, ab omni populo ?
  24. Nolite, filii mei : non enim est bona fama, quam ego audio, ut transgredi faciatis populum Domini.
  25. Si peccaverit vir in virum, placari ei potest Deus : si autem in Dominum peccaverit vir, quis orabit pro eo ? Et non audierunt vocem patris sui : quia voluit Dominus occidere eos.
  26. Puer autem Samuel proficiebat, atque crescebat, et placebat tam Domino quam hominibus.
  27. Venit autem vir Dei ad Heli, et ait ad eum : Hæc dicit Dominus : Numquid non aperte revelatus sum domui patris tui, cum essent in Ægypto in domo Pharaonis ?
  28. Et elegi eum ex omnibus tribubus Israël mihi in sacerdotem, ut ascenderet ad altare meum, et adoleret mihi incensum, et portaret ephod coram me : et dedi domui patris tui omnia de sacrificiis filiorum Israël.
  29. Quare calce abjecistis victimam meam, et munera mea quæ præcepi ut offerentur in templo : et magis honorasti filios tuos quam me, ut comederetis primitias omnis sacrificii Israël populi mei ?
  30. Propterea ait Dominus Deus Israël : Loquens locutus sum, ut domus tua, et domus patris tui, ministraret in conspectu meo, usque in sempiternum. Nunc autem dicit Dominus : Absit hoc a me : sed quicumque glorificaverit me, glorificabo eum : qui autem contemnunt me, erunt ignobiles.
  31. Ecce dies veniunt : et præcidam brachium tuum, et brachium domus patris tui, ut non sit senex in domo tua.
  32. Et videbis æmulum tuum in templo, in universis prosperis Israël : et non erit senex in domo tua omnibus diebus.
  33. Verumtamen non auferam penitus virum ex te ab altari meo : sed ut deficiant oculi tui, et tabescat anima tua : et pars magna domus tuæ morietur cum ad virilem ætatem venerit.
  34. Hoc autem erit tibi signum, quod venturum est duobus filiis tuis, Ophni et Phinees : in die uno morientur ambo.
  35. Et suscitabo mihi sacerdotem fidelem, qui juxta cor meum et animam meam faciet : et ædificabo ei domum fidelem, et ambulabit coram Christo meo cunctis diebus.
  36. Futurum est autem, ut quicumque remanserit in domo tua, veniat ut oretur pro eo, et offerat nummum argenteum, et tortam panis, dicatque : Dimitte me, obsecro, ad unam partem sacerdotalem, ut comedam buccellam panis.
1 Samuel 2 Text (KJV)
  1. And Hannah prayed, and said, My heart rejoiceth in the LORD, mine horn is exalted in the LORD: my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies; because I rejoice in thy salvation.
  2. There is none holy as the LORD: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God.
  3. Talk no more so exceeding proudly; let not arrogancy come out of your mouth: for the LORD is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed.
  4. The bows of the mighty men are broken, and they that stumbled are girded with strength.
  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.
  12. Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not the LORD.
  13. And the priests' custom with the people was, that, when any man offered sacrifice, the priest's servant came, while the flesh was in seething, with a fleshhook of three teeth in his hand;
  14. And he struck it into the pan, or kettle, or caldron, or pot; all that the fleshhook brought up the priest took for himself. So they did in Shiloh unto all the Israelites that came thither.
  15. Also before they burnt the fat, the priest's servant came, and said to the man that sacrificed, Give flesh to roast for the priest; for he will not have sodden flesh of thee, but raw.
  16. And if any man said unto him, Let them not fail to burn the fat presently, and then take as much as thy soul desireth; then he would answer him, Nay; but thou shalt give it me now: and if not, I will take it by force.
  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.
  24. Nay, my sons; for it is no good report that I hear: ye make the LORD's people to transgress.
  25. If one man sin against another, the judge shall judge him: but if a man sin against the LORD, who shall intreat for him? Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto the voice of their father, because the LORD would slay them.
  26. And the child Samuel grew on, and was in favour both with the LORD, and also with men.
  27. And there came a man of God unto Eli, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Did I plainly appear unto the house of thy father, when they were in Egypt in Pharaoh's house?
  28. And did I choose him out of all the tribes of Israel to be my priest, to offer upon mine altar, to burn incense, to wear an ephod before me? and did I give unto the house of thy father all the offerings made by fire of the children of Israel?
  29. Wherefore kick ye at my sacrifice and at mine offering, which I have commanded in my habitation; and honourest thy sons above me, to make yourselves fat with the chiefest of all the offerings of Israel my people?
  30. Wherefore the LORD God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the LORD saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.
  31. Behold, the days come, that I will cut off thine arm, and the arm of thy father's house, that there shall not be an old man in thine house.
  32. And thou shalt see an enemy in my habitation, in all the wealth which God shall give Israel: and there shall not be an old man in thine house for ever.
  33. And the man of thine, whom I shall not cut off from mine altar, shall be to consume thine eyes, and to grieve thine heart: and all the increase of thine house shall die in the flower of their age.
  34. And this shall be a sign unto thee, that shall come upon thy two sons, on Hophni and Phinehas; in one day they shall die both of them.
  35. And I will raise me up a faithful priest, that shall do according to that which is in mine heart and in my mind: and I will build him a sure house; and he shall walk before mine anointed for ever.
  36. And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left in thine house shall come and crouch to him for a piece of silver and a morsel of bread, and shall say, Put me, I pray thee, into one of the priests' offices, that I may eat a piece of bread.
1 Samuel 2
