Wesley's Notes for 1 Samuel 1:28


1:28 Lent him - But not with a purpose to require him again. Whatever we give to God, may upon this account be said to be lent to him, that tho' we may not recall it, yet he will certainly repay it, to our unspeakable advantage. He worshipped - Not Eli, but young Samuel, who is spoken of in this and the foregoing verse, and who was capable of worshipping God in some sort, at least with external adoration.


Discussion for 1 Samuel 1

  • 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.
  • Getrude
    It indeed an encouraging scripture.No matter what people say about our situations,never stop crying to your God for one day,God will answer you!
  • Karl
    responds to Devlin; thanks for answering back, don't know Hebrew, trust the scholars for that, but as I understand it -eli eli lema sabachthani- my god my god why hast thought forsaken me. My question then to you would be simply who do you think JESUS was; mere prophet, jewish demigod, divinely inspired rabbi, or the LORD made flesh? What was the LORD trying to teach with those last words?
  • Monica
    God is a very loving Father and he will never abandon those that call to him in the name of Jesus his only Son. Regardless of how long Hannah being barren, she knew in her heart that God, and God alone could change her situation. When she prayed, she prayed without doubt that God was listening to her prayer and that he would answer. We sometimes pray without believing - whether what I have asked for will come through or not? Or the doctor has said I have few weeks to live before I die so I'm not quite so what will happen! Doubts closes the door to God's mercy throne. Hannah prayed believing and she received but she also lived up to the promise she made to give back the child for God's glory. Wonderful lesson and one of my favorites.
  • Gerald Bankhead
    Jesus is the Son of God, but is Himself a God. I believe this is the Son praying to His Father. Rather than a God praying to a God. At the time Jesus spoke to God, The Father, He knew He was answering to someone with more power, so to speak. If not, why ask? Jesus was asking the only person, He knew could
    Help Him.
