First Reading

1 Samuel 1,20-22.24-28

Hannah conceived and, in due course, gave birth to a son, whom she named Samuel, 'since', she said, 'I asked Yahweh for him.'

Elkanah, the husband, went up with all his family to offer the annual sacrifice to Yahweh and to fulfil his vow.

However, Hannah did not go up, having said to her husband, 'Not before the child has been weaned. Then I shall bring him and present him before Yahweh and he will stay there for ever.'

When she had weaned him, she took him up with her, as well as a three-year-old bull, an ephah of flour and a skin of wine, and took him into the temple of Yahweh at Shiloh; the child was very young.

They sacrificed the bull and led the child to Eli.

She said, 'If you please, my lord! As you live, my lord, I am the woman who stood beside you here, praying to Yahweh.

This is the child for which I was praying, and Yahweh has granted me what I asked of him.

Now I make him over to Yahweh for the whole of his life. He is made over to Yahweh.' They then worshipped Yahweh there.
