Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 1 Samuel 1:3


1:3 Yearly - At the three solemn feasts, when he, together with all other males were obliged to go to worship God in the place appointed; and at other times, when he as a Levite, was to go thither in his course. To sacrifice - Not in his own person, which the Levites could not do, but by the priests. Were there - Or, were the priests of the Lord there, under their father Eli, who is generally conceived to have been the high - priest, but being very old and infirm, his sons ministered in his stead. This is the first time in scripture, that God is called the Lord of hosts or Armies. Probably Samuel was the first who used this title of God, for the comfort of Israel, at the time when their armies were few and feeble, and those of their enemies many and mighty.

    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.

    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.
