1Sa:2:32: And thou shalt see an enemy in my habitation, in all the wealth which God shall give Israel: and there shall not be an old man in thine house for ever.
1Sa:2:33: And the man of thine, whom I shall not cut off from mine altar, shall be to consume thine eyes, and to grieve thine heart: and all the increase of thine house shall die in the flower of their age.
1Sa:2:34: And this shall be a sign unto thee, that shall come upon thy two sons, on Hophni and Phinehas; in one day they shall die both of them.
1Sa:2:35: And I will raise me up a faithful priest, that shall do according to that which is in mine heart and in my mind: and I will build him a sure house; and he shall walk before mine anointed for ever.
1Sa:2:36: And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left in thine house shall come and crouch to him for a piece of silver and a morsel of bread, and shall say, Put me, I pray thee, into one of the priestsí offices, that I may eat a piece of bread.

Chapter 3


1Sa:3:1: And the child Samuel ministered unto the LORD before Eli.  And the word of the LORD was precious in those days; there was no open vision.
1Sa:3:2: And it came to pass at that time, when Eli was laid down in his place, and his eyes began to wax dim, that he could not see;
1Sa:3:3: And ere the lamp of God went out in the temple of the LORD, where the ark of God was, and Samuel was laid down to sleep;
1Sa:3:4: That the LORD called Samuel: and he answered, Here am I.
1Sa:3:5: And he ran unto Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou calledst me.  And he said, I called not; lie down again.  And he went and lay down.
1Sa:3:6: And the LORD called yet again, Samuel.  And Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me.  And he answered, I called not, my son; lie down again.
1Sa:3:7: Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, neither was the word of the LORD yet revealed unto him.
1Sa:3:8: And the LORD called Samuel again the third time.  And he arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me.  And Eli perceived that the LORD had called the child.
1Sa:3:9: Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, Go, lie down: and it shall be, if he call thee, that thou shalt say, Speak, LORD; for thy servant heareth.  So Samuel went and lay down in his place.
1Sa:3:10: And the LORD came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel.  Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth.
1Sa:3:11: And the LORD said to Samuel, Behold, I will do a thing in Israel, at which both the ears of every one that heareth it shall tingle.
1Sa:3:12: In that day I will perform against Eli all things which I have spoken concerning his house: when I begin, I will also make an end.
1Sa:3:13: For I have told him that I will judge his house for ever for the iniquity which he knoweth; because his sons made themselves vile, and he restrained them not.
1Sa:3:14: And therefore I have sworn unto the house of Eli, that the iniquity of Eliís house shall not be purged with sacrifice nor offering for ever.
1Sa:3:15: And Samuel lay until the morning, and opened the doors of the house of the LORD.  And Samuel feared to shew Eli the vision.
1Sa:3:16: Then Eli called Samuel, and said, Samuel, my son.  And he answered, Here am I.
1Sa:3:17: And he said, What is the thing that the LORD hath said unto thee?  I pray thee hide it not from me: God do so to thee, and more also, if thou hide any thing from me of all the things that he said unto thee.
1Sa:3:18: And Samuel told him every whit, and hid nothing from him.  And he said, It is the LORD: let him do what seemeth him good.
1Sa:3:19: And Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him, and did let none of his words fall to the ground.
1Sa:3:20: And all Israel from Dan even to Beer-sheba knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of the LORD.
1Sa:3:21: And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh: for the LORD revealed himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the LORD.
