Elkanah goeth yearly up to the feast at Shiloh with his two wives: Hannah is barren; Peninnah upbraideth her, 1-6. Hannah prayeth fervently to the Lord for a son; promising to separate him a Nazarite unto God, 7-12. Eli thinking her drunk rebuketh her; upon her answer, blesseth her, 13-18. She returneth home with Elkanah, and conceiveth; beareth Samuel; offereth her sacrifice; performs her promise concerning him, 19-28.
