1 Samuel Chapter 1 Summary


1 Samuel Chapter 1 Summary

Welcome to the books of Samuel, the prophet of God. This book is broken in two, first and second. Chapter one of first Samuel begins with the story of a man named Elkanah, who had two wives.

He was a believing man who went to worship and sacrifice to God on a yearly basis, but his problem was that the wife he loved, her name Hannah, was barren and could not have children.

He tried to encourage her, but it wasn’t enough. She was sad and depressed about this and could not be cheered. She went to prayer to God. She went before the priest at the time, Eli, and petitioned God to allow her a child, Eli being her mediator.

She made a vow before God that if God gave her a son, she’d give him back to the Lord, through service all the child’s days and would not put a razor to his head. That is cut his hair, not kill him!

Eli the priest saw her praying and his first thought was that she was a drunk women, but she corrected him and told him her petition. “I want a child,” she said. He replied, go in peace and the God of Israel grant your petition.

God Hears Hannah

In the process of time, Hannah and Elkanah knew each other and the Lord remembered her request. They had a child, a son they named Samuel. She took young Samuel to Eli and told that she is loaning him to the Lord because the Lord had granted her petition she requested.

This is the opening chapter to first Samuel.
