1 Sam. 2 :1 2:1 aAnd Hannah prayed and said:
My heart exults in Jehovah;
My bhorn is exalted in Jehovah;
My mouth is enlarged against my enemies,
Because I rejoice in Your 1csalvation.
1 Sam. 2 :2 2:2 There is none aholy like Jehovah,
For there is none besides You;
Nor is there a brock like our God.
1 Sam. 2 :3 2:3 Talk no more so very proudly;
Do not let arrogance go forth from your mouth;
For Jehovah is a God of aknowledge,
1And actions are bweighed by Him.
1 Sam. 2 :4 2:4 The bows of the mighty men are broken,
And those who stumbled are girded with strength.

For the pillars of the cearth are Jehovah’s,
And He has set the world upon them.

But the wicked will be silenced in darkness;
For not by astrength shall any man prevail.

C. His relationship with the stale and waning Aaronic priesthood 2:12—7:17
1. Observing the deterioration of the degraded Aaronic priesthood 2:12-26
1 Sam. 2 :12 2:12 Now the sons of Eli were worthless men; they did not aknow Jehovah,
1 Sam. 2 :13 2:13 Nor did they regard the priests’ rightful adue with the people. When any man offered a sacrifice, the priest’s attendant would come with a three-pronged fork in his hand while the flesh was boiling,
1 Sam. 2 :14 2:14 And he would thrust it into the pan or kettle or cauldron or pot; all that the fork brought up, the priest took with it. Thus they did in Shiloh to all the Israelites who came there.
1 Sam. 2 :15 2:15 Indeed before they burned the afat, the priest’s attendant would come and say to the man sacrificing, Give some flesh to roast for the priest, for he will not accept boiled flesh from you, but only raw.
1 Sam. 2 :16 2:16 And if the man said to him, Let them burn up the fat first, then take as much as your soul desires; he would say, No, but you shall give it now; otherwise, I will take it by force.
1 Sam. 2 :17 2:17 And the sin of the young men was very great before Jehovah, for the men despised the offering of Jehovah.
1 Sam. 2 :18 2:18 And Samuel ministered before Jehovah, as a boy wearing a linen aephod.
1 Sam. 2 :19 2:19 And his mother would make him a little robe and bring it up to him yearly when she went up with her husband to offer the yearly sacrifice.
1 Sam. 2 :20 2:20 And Eli would bless Elkanah and his wife and say, May Jehovah give you seed by this woman in place of the one she requested of Jehovah; and they would go back to their place.
1 Sam. 2 :21 2:21 1And Jehovah visited Hannah, and she conceived and bore three sons and two daughters. And the boy Samuel agrew before Jehovah.
1 Sam. 2 :22 2:22 Now Eli was very old, and he heard of all that his sons did to all Israel and how they lay with the women who were engaged in service at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting.
1 Sam. 2 :23 2:23 And he said to them, 1Why do you do such things? For I hear of your evil dealings from all this people.
1 Sam. 2 :24 2:24 No, my sons; for it is not a good report 1that I hear Jehovah’s people spreading.
1 Sam. 2 :25 2:25 If one man sins against another man, God will arbitrate for him; but if a man sins against Jehovah, who will arbitrate for him? But they would not listen to the voice of their father, for Jehovah was pleased to kill them.
1 Sam. 2 :26 2:26 And the boy Samuel continued to agrow in stature and in favor both with Jehovah and with men.
2. Realizing God's severe judgment on the house of Eli 2:27—3:21
1 Sam. 2 :27 2:27 And a man of God came to Eli and said to him, Thus says Jehovah, I arevealed Myself to the house of your father when they were in Egypt 1as slaves to Pharaoh’s house.
1 Sam. 2 :28 2:28 And I chose him out of all the tribes of Israel to be My apriest, to go up to My altar, to burn incense, and to wear the ephod before Me. And I gave the house of your father all the offerings by fire of the children of Israel.
1 Sam. 2 :29 2:29 Why then do you kick at My sacrifice and My offering, which I have commanded in My habitation, and honor your sons more than Me by making yourselves fat with the best of all the offerings of Israel My people?
1 Sam. 2 :30 2:30 Therefore Jehovah the God of Israel declares, I surely said that your house and the house of your father would walk before Me aforever; but now Jehovah declares, Far be it from Me; for those who honor Me I will honor, and those who spurn Me will be lightly esteemed.
1 Sam. 2 :31 2:31 The days are now coming when I will acut off your arm and the arm of the house of your father, so that there will not be an old man in your house.
1 Sam. 2 :32 2:32 And you shall see the adistress of My habitation in the midst of all the good that 1I will do to Israel, and there shall not be an old man in your house forever.
1 Sam. 2 :33 2:33 And that man of yours whom I do not cut off from My altar shall be left to consume your eyes and to grieve your soul, and all the increase of your house shall die 1by the swords of men.
1 Sam. 2 :34 2:34 And this will be the sign to you, which will come upon your two sons, upon Hophni and Phinehas: In one day both of them shall die.
1 Sam. 2 :35 2:35 And I will raise up for Myself a faithful 1apriest, who will do according to what is in My 2heart and in My 2mind; and I will build him a sure bhouse; and che will 3go before My anointed continually.
1 Sam. 2 :36 2:36 And everyone who is left of your house will come and bow down to him for a piece of silver and for a loaf of bread, and will say, Please put me in one of the priests’ offices that I may eat a morsel of bread.
