Story 06: Samuel’s Birth and Childhood 1 Samuel 1:The Family of Elkanah The Birth of Samuel 1 Now there was
a certain man of Ramathaim Zophim, -- and his name was Elkanah --. 2And he had two wives: the name of one was Hannah, and the name of the other Peninnah. Peninnah had children, but Hannah had no children. 3This man went up from his city yearly to worship and sacrifice to the LORD of hosts in Shiloh. Also the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, the priests of the LORD, were there. ْ ِ َ ََ وكان متزوجا من امرأتين هما حنة وفننة. وكان لفننة أولد؛ أما حنة فكانت عاقرا. 3 وكان من ً ِ َ ْ َ َ َ ُ ّ َ ّ َ ٌ َ ْ َ َ ّ ِ َ ِ َ َ َ ُ ّ ِ َ َ ُ ّ َ َ ُ ِ ْ َ ََ ْ ِ ِ ً ّ َ َ ُ َ َ َ ،عادة ألقانة أن يذهب من مدينته مع عائلته في كل عام ليسجد ويقدم ذبائح للرب القدير في شيلوه َ ُ ِ ِ ِ ِ َ ْ ّ ّ ِ َ ِ َ َ َ ّ َ ُ َ َ ُ ْ َ ٍ َ ّ ُ ِ ِ ِ َِ َ َ َ ِ ِ َ ِ َ ْ ِ َ َ ْ َ ْ َ َ َ َ ْ َ ِ َ َ .وكان حفني وفينحاس ابنا عالي هما كاهنا الرب في ذلك الوقت ِ ْ َ ْ َ َِ ِ ّ ّ َ ِ َ َ ُ ِ َ َ ْ ُ َ ْ ِ َ ِ ْ ُ َ َ َ
And whenever the time came for Elkanah to make an offering, he would give portions to Peninnah his wife and to all her sons and daughters. 5But to Hannah he would give a double portion, for he loved Hannah, although the LORD had closed her womb. 6And her rival also provoked her severely, to make her miserable, because the LORD had closed her womb. 7So it was, year by year, when she went up to the house of the LORD, that she provoked her; therefore she wept and did not eat. Hannah's Vow -- 9 So Hannah arose after they had finished eating and drinking in Shiloh. Now Eli the priest was sitting on the seat by the doorpost of the tabernacle of the LORD. 10And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed to the LORD and wept in anguish. 11Then she made a vow and said, "O LORD of hosts, if You will indeed look on the affliction of Your maidservant and remember me, and not forget Your maidservant, but will give Your maidservant a male child, then I will give him to the LORD all the days of his life, and no razor shall come upon his head."
And it happened, as she continued praying before the LORD, that Eli watched her mouth. 13Now Hannah spoke in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard. Therefore Eli thought she was drunk. 14So Eli said to her, "How long will you be drunk? Put your wine away from you!" 15 But Hannah answered and said, "No, my lord, I am a woman of sorrowful spirit. I have drunk neither wine nor intoxicating drink, but have poured out my soul before the LORD. 16Do not consider your maidservant a wicked woman, for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief I have spoken until now." 17 Then Eli answered and said, "Go in peace, and the God of Israel grant your petition which you have asked of Him." 18And she said, "Let your maidservant find favor in your sight." So the woman went her way and ate, and her face was no longer sad. Samuel Is Born and Dedicated 19 -- And Elkanah knew Hannah his wife, and the LORD remembered her. 20 So it came to pass in the process of time that Hannah conceived and bore a son, and called his name Samuel, -- 21Now the man Elkanah and all his house went up to offer to the LORD the yearly sacrifice and his vow. 22But Hannah did not go up, for she said to her husband, "Not until the child is weaned; then I will take him, that he may appear before the LORD and remain there forever." 23 So Elkanah her husband said to her, "Do what seems best to you; wait until you have weaned him. Only let the LORD establish His word." Then the woman stayed and nursed her son until she had weaned him. 24 Now when she had weaned him, she took him up with her, with three bulls, one ephah of flour, and a skin of wine, and brought him to the house of the LORD in Shiloh. – Samuel's Childhood Ministry 2: 18 But Samuel ministered before the LORD, even as a child, wearing a linen ephod. 19Moreover his mother used to make him a little robe, and bring it to him year by year when she came up with her husband to offer
the yearly sacrifice. 20And Eli would bless Elkanah and his wife, and say, "The LORD give you descendants from this woman for the loan that was given to the LORD." Then they would go to their own home. 21 And the LORD visited Hannah, so that she conceived and bore three sons and two daughters. Meanwhile the child Samuel grew before the LORD. Prophecy Against Eli's Household 22 Now Eli was very old; and he heard everything his sons did to all Israel, and how they lay with the women who assembled at the door of the tabernacle of meeting. 23So he said to them, "Why do you do such things? For I hear of your evil dealings from all the people. 24No, my sons! For it is not a good report that I hear. You make the LORD's people transgress. 25If one man sins against another, God will judge him. But if a man sins against the LORD, who will intercede for him?" Nevertheless they did not heed the voice of their father, because the LORD desired to kill them. 26 And the child Samuel grew in stature, and in favor both with the LORD and men. 27 Then a man of God came to Eli and said to him, “-- 29Why do you kick at My sacrifice and My offering which I have commanded in My dwelling place, and honor your sons more than Me, to make yourselves fat with the best of all the offerings of Israel My people?' 30Therefore the LORD God of Israel says: "I said indeed that your house and the house of your father would walk before Me forever.' But now the LORD says: "Far be it from Me; for those who honor Me I will honor, and those who despise Me shall be lightly esteemed. 31Behold, the days are coming that I will cut off your arm and the arm of your father's house, so that there will not be an old man in your house. -33 But any of your men whom I do not cut off from My altar shall consume your eyes and grieve your heart. And all the descendants of your house shall die in the flower of their age. 34Now this shall be a sign to you that will come upon your two sons, on Hophni and Phinehas: in one day they shall die, both of them. 35Then I will raise up for Myself a faithful priest who shall do according to what is in My heart and in My mind. I will build
him a sure house, and he shall walk before My anointed forever. 36And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left in your house will come and bow down to him for a piece of silver and a morsel of bread, --.""' سفر صموئيل الول سفر البدايات الرائعة، مع نهايات مفجعة. فهو يبدأ بعالي الكاهن رئيس الكهنة في عصر القضاة. ولبد أن عالي، باعتباره قائدا دينيا، قد بدأ حياته في شركة وطيدة بال، ففي ً ً حديثه مع حنة وفي تدريبه لبنها صموئيل، أدرك بوضوح مقاصد ال ودعوته )1صم 1، 3(. ولكن حياته انتهت بالعار ووقع ولداه تحت دينونة ال، ووقع تابوت العهد المقدس في أيدي العدو )1صم .4(. وكان موت عالي نقطة انهيار نفوذ الكهنوت وبروز دور النبياء في إسرائيل ،لقد كرست حنة ابنها صموئيل لخدمة ال، فأصبح أحد عظماء أنبياء إسرائيل. لقد كان رجل صلة أنهى خدمة القضاة، وبدأ مدرسة النبياء، ومسح أول ملكين في إسرائيل. ولكن حتى صموئيل لم يكن محصنا ضد المشاكل، فكما حدث في عائلة عالي، ابتعد ابنا صموئيل عن ال وأخذا رشوة ً 5 :8) "وعوجا القضاء، فرفض الشعب قيادة القضاة والكهنة، وطلبوا ملكا "كبقية الشعوب ً 1 Samuel 3: Samuel's First Prophecy Samuel Warns Eli 1 Now the boy Samuel ministered to the LORD before Eli. And the word of the LORD was rare in those days; there was no widespread revelation. 2And it came to pass at that time, while Eli was lying down in his place, and when his eyes had begun to grow so dim that he could not see, 3and before the lamp of God went out in the tabernacle of the LORD where the ark of God was, and while Samuel was lying down, 4that the LORD called Samuel. And he answered, "Here I am!" 5So he ran to Eli and said, "Here I am, for you called me." And he said, "I did not call; lie down again." And he went and lay down. 6 Then the LORD called yet again, "Samuel!" So Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said, "Here I am, for you called me." He answered, "I did not call, my son; lie down again." 7(Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, nor was the word of the LORD yet revealed to him.) 8 And the LORD called Samuel again the third time. So he arose and went to Eli, and said, "Here I am, for you did call me."
Then Eli perceived that the LORD had called the boy. 9Therefore Eli said to Samuel, "Go, lie down; and it shall be, if He calls you, that you must say, "Speak, LORD, for Your servant hears."' So Samuel went and lay down in his place. 10 Now the LORD came and stood and called as at other times, "Samuel! Samuel!" And Samuel answered, "Speak, for Your servant hears."

Then the LORD said to Samuel: "Behold, I will do something in Israel at which both ears of everyone who hears it will tingle. 12In that day I will perform against Eli all that I have spoken concerning his house, from beginning to end. 13For I have told him that I will judge his house forever for the iniquity which he knows, because his sons made themselves vile, and he did not restrain them. 14And therefore I have sworn to the house of Eli that the iniquity of Eli's house shall not be atoned for by sacrifice or offering forever."
by Matthew Henry, 1 Samuel 3: 11-18 What a great deal of guilt and corruption is there in us, concerning which we may say, It is the iniquity which our own heart knoweth; we are conscious to ourselves of it! Those who do not restrain the sins of others, when it is in their power to do it, make themselves partakers of the guilt, and will be charged as joining in it. In his remarkable answer to this awful sentence, Eli acknowledged that the Lord had a right to do as he saw good, being assured that he would do nothing wrong. The meekness, patience, and humility contained in those words, show that he was truly repentant; he accepted the punishment of his sin.
So Samuel lay down until morning, and opened the doors of the house of the LORD. And Samuel was afraid to tell Eli the vision. 16Then Eli called Samuel and said, "Samuel, my son!" He answered, "Here I am." 17 And he said, "What is the word that the LORD spoke to you? Please do not hide it from me. God do so to you, and more also, if you hide anything
from me of all the things that He said to you." 18Then Samuel told him everything, and hid nothing from him. And he said, "It is the LORD. Let ".Him do what seems good to Him 91 So Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him and let none of his words fall to the ground. 20And all Israel from Dan to Beersheba knew that Samuel had been established as a prophet of the LORD. 21Then the LORD appeared again in Shiloh. For the LORD revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh by .the word of the LORD كثيرا ما نتساءل عن طفولة الناس العظام، فليس لدينا سوى القليل من المعلومات عن السنوات ً المبكرة للناس المذكورين في الكتاب المقدس. ولكن صموئيل استثناء جميل، فقد جاء نتيجة لصلة حنة من أجل ابن )واسم "صموئيل" معناه في العبرية : "الذي طلب من ال"(. وقد صاغ ال صموئيل منذ البداية. وقد دعي صموئيل، مثل موسى، للقيام بالكثير من مختلف الدوار: فكان ُ قاضيا وكاهنا ونبيا ومشيرا ورجل ال في نقطة فاصلة في تاريخ شعب إسرائيل. وقد عمل ال من ً ً ً ً .خلل صموئيل لن صموئيل كان مستعدا أن يكون شيئا واحدا : خادم ال فقط ً ً ً وقد أثبت صموئيل أن من يجدهم ال أمناء في المور الصغيرة، يعهد إليهم بأمور أعظم. وقد نشأ صموئيل مساعدا لرئيس الكهنة )عالي( في خيمة الشهادة، وقام بكل ما استطاع أن يقوم به، إلى أن ً .وجههه ال إلى مسئوليات أخرى، واستطاع ال أن يستخدم صموئيل لنه كان مكرسا تماما له ً ً وقد تقدم صموئيل لنه كان يستمع لتوجيهات ال. وكثيرا ما نطلب من ال أن يسيطر على حياتنا ً دون أن نتخلى عن الهداف التي نسعى إليها. نطلب من ال أن يعيننا على الذهاب حيث نريد. وأول خطوة لتصويب هذه النزعة، هي أن نعطيه هو السيطرة على حياتنا والغاية منها. والخطوة الثانية أن نطيع كل ما نعرف فعل أن ال يريده منا. والخطوة الثالثة هي أن نستمع لتوجيه آخر من كلمته ً .التي هي خطته لحياتنا Van Dyke - Arabic KJV - English 6002 Arabic explanation from : Copyright © Life Application Bible Posted in Scribd by Viviansteven Read my other publications
