Wesley's Notes for 1 Samuel 1:24


1:24 Three bullocks - One for a burnt - offering, the second for a sin - offering, and the third for a peace offering; all these sorts being expedient for this work and time. Flour - For the meal - offerings belonging to the principal sacrifices, which to each bullock were three tenth - deals, or three tenth parts of an ephah, and so nine parts of the ephah were spent, and the tenth part was given to the priest. Wine - For drink - offerings.

    God is God of promise:and every drop of tear you pour in the presences of the eyes of God there is a reward
  • Tim George
    Hannah is an example of a woman of God, who kept her composure, in a very difficult situation in life. She could have easily said, woe is me, but instead she submitted to the will of God. By offering Samuel to God, all the days of his life, she demonstrated that serving God is our highest calling in life, no matter what we have to suffer in order to do so.
  • Toni
    I think what stood out to me was that Hannah was so focused on what she didn't have, that she couldn't see what she did have. Be grateful for what you have and trust that God will reward you with the desires of your heart.
  • BSP
    In verse 7 Hannah was taunted so bad that she would weep and not eat. This shows how negatively our words may affect other people if we don't use them in an encouraging way.

  • TIMOTHY IFIDON
    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
