THE FIRST BOOK OF SAMUEL
THE BIRTH OF SAMUEL
Welcome back to Daily Bread! So glad you're here to share more Old Testament
Bible stories. As you know, before we studied the Book of Ruth, we learned about
when judges were the leaders in Israel. In the First Book of Samuel, you will
learn how kings became the leaders in Israel. Most of this book focuses on three
main people: Samuel, the judge and Prophet; Saul, the first king of Israel, and
David, the Lord's personal favorite king, who was anointed, but had not yet
taken the throne, because Saul was still alive. There are of course, other
stories to discover as well.
THE BIRTH OF SAMUEL STUDY ON THE BIRTH OF SAMUEL STORY WITH THE BIRTH OF SAMUEL MESSAGE
to note that the books of First and Second Chronicles have many of the same
stories as the books of Samuel and Kings plus some additional details that were
omitted from Samuel and Kings, so Daily Bread has
already done the leg work for you and matched up the stories from Chronicles
with the stories from Samuel and Kings and combined the information for you,
just like we combined our studies of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John in the Daily
Bread Gospels. We have indicated these "parallel" chapters at the beginning of each study, so
without any further ado, let's get started, shall we?
There was a man named Elkanah, and he had two wives; Peninnah and Hannah. Peninnah had
children, but Hannah did not, and every year Elkanah went to the house of the
Lord in Shiloh to worship and sacrifice.
Thou mayest not eat within thy gates the tithe of thy corn, or of thy
wine, or of thy oil, or the firstlings of thy herds or of thy flock, nor
any of thy vows which thou vowest, nor thy freewill offerings, or heave
offering of thine hand: But thou must eat them before the LORD thy God in
the place which the LORD thy God shall choose, thou, and thy son, and thy
daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite that is
within thy gates: and thou shalt rejoice before the LORD thy God in all
that thou puttest thine hands unto.
Each year at this
celebration, Peninnah would taunt Hannah, to make her cry because she was
barren. It would make Hannah so sad that she wouldn't eat, so Elkanah said to
her, Why are you so unhappy? Why do you cry and not eat? Am I not better to you
than ten sons? And Elkanah gave portions (for feasting) to Peninnah and her children, but he gave more
to Hannah because he loved Hannah, but the Lord kept her childless.
THE BIRTH OF SAMUEL BIBLE READING WITH THE BIRTH OF SAMUEL INFORMATION
So after they had eaten and drank in Shiloh,
Hanna went to pray at the Temple, and she made a vow to the Lord, that if He
would allow her to have a baby boy, she would give him to the Lord
all the days of his life and never cut his hair. As Hannah prayed, she was very
sad and cried, and as she spoke in her heart, her lips moved, but her voice was
There in the
Temple, sitting by a pillar, was Eli, the high priest. Noticing that Hannah
moved her lips as she prayed, Eli assumed that she was drunk. When he mentioned
this observation to her, she told him that she had nothing to drink, but that
she had a sorrowful spirit. Eli said, Go in peace, and my god answer your
And God did indeed
answer Hannah's prayer, and she had a son who was named Samuel. When he was
weaned, they brought him to the Temple in Shiloh at the time of the yearly
worship and sacrifice, and Hannah said to Eli, I am the woman who prayed to the
Lord for this child, and He has answered my prayer. I vowed that I would grant
him to the Lord as long as he lives. And Hannah left Samuel under the care of
Eli the priest, who raised him in ministering to the Lord in the Temple.
This story may remind you a little of how Samson was conceived, because his
mother was barren before that. Matter of fact, we've seen many times when the
Lord has blessed women with children who were once barren. There was Sarah (Genesis
Genesis 21:2), Rebekah (Genesis
25:21), Rachel (Genesis
Genesis 30:22), Samson's mother (Judges
13:2-3), and now Hannah.
