Hannah Prays for a Son

9So Hannah rose up after they had eaten in Shiloh, and after they had drunk. Now Eli the priest sat on a seat by a post of the temple of the LORD. 10And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed to the LORD, and wept sore. 11And she vowed a vow, and said, O LORD of hosts, if you will indeed look on the affliction of your handmaid, and remember me, and not forget your handmaid, but will give to your handmaid a man child, then I will give him to the LORD all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come on his head. 12And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the LORD, that Eli marked her mouth. 13Now Hannah, she spoke in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken. 14And Eli said to her, How long will you be drunken? put away your wine from you. 15And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the LORD. 16Count not your handmaid for a daughter of Belial: for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief have I spoken till now. 17Then Eli answered and said, Go in peace: and the God of Israel grant you your petition that you have asked of him. 18And she said, Let your handmaid find grace in your sight. So the woman went her way, and did eat, and her countenance was no more sad.
