Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 1 Samuel 1:12


1:12 Continued - Heb. multiplied to pray. By which it appears that she said much more than is here expressed. And the like you are to judge of the prayers and sermons of other holy persons recorded in scripture, which gives us only the sum and substance of them. This consideration may help us much to understand some passages of the bible.

    Another significant part about Hannah was that she kept to her vow.We should learn from this.God keeps vow and always honours it.It has always been men who do not keep their own side of the vows.I want you to know that you can turn around your situations by engaging God in a vow.May God help us and give us grace to overcome all our challenges in life,amen

    High Priest Eli mistakenly thought that Hannah was drunk. He did not have all the facts and he made a wrong assumption. We can learn a lesson from this and refrain from making assumptions too fast.
  • Shaneika Roberts
    The Lord hears the cries of his children. What Hannah had to go through was hard but she kept the faith and trusted God and her reward was great.
  • Danielle
    It is amazing how Hannah was able to withstand all of that torment, and still trust God!
  • Nikelwa
    Comment The story of Hanna is very painful but when you trust in God and believe in him nothing is impossible, I'm also like Hanna.
