← 1 Samuel 1   1 Samuel 3 →

1 Nato se Ana pomoli ovako: "Kliče srce moje u Jahvi, raste snaga moja po Bogu mom. Šire mi se usta na dušmane moje, jer se radujem pomoći tvojoj.

2 Nitko nije svet kao što je Jahve (jer nema nikoga osim tebe), i nema hridi kao što Bog je naš.

3 Ne govorite mnogo hvastavih riječi, neka ne izlazi drskost iz usta vaših, jer Jahve je sveznajući Bog, pravo on prosuđuje djela.

4 Lomi se luk junacima, nemoćni se snagom opasuju.

5 Nekoć siti sad se za kruh muče, nekoć gladni ne gladuju više. Nerotkinja rađa sedam puta, majka brojne djece svježinu izgubi.

6 Jahve daje smrt i život, ruši u Šeol i odande diže.

7 Jahve čini uboga i bogata, obara čovjeka i uzvisuje.

8 Diže slabića iz prašine, iz bunjišta izvlači uboga, da ih posadi s knezovima i da im odredi počasna mjesta. Jer Jahvini su stupovi zemlje, na njih je stavio ovaj svijet.

9 Korake čuva svojih vjernika, zlikovce stiže propast u mraku (svojom snagom čovjek ne stječe pobjede).

10 Koji se protive Jahvi, padaju, Svevišnji grmi s nebesa. Jahve sudi međama zemlje, daje silu svojemu kralju, uzdiže snagu pomazanika svoga."

11 Potom se Ana vrati u Ramu, a dječak ostade da služi Jahvi pod okom svećenika Elija.

12 A Elijevi sinovi bijahu nevaljali ljudi jer nisu marili za Jahvu

13 ni za prava svećenika nasuprot narodu: kad bi tko prinosio žrtvu, došao bi sluga svećenikov, dok se meso još kuhalo, s trorogom vilicom u ruci

14 i zabadao njom u kotlić ili u lonac, u tavu ili u zdjelu, i što god bi se nabolo na vilicu, uzimao je svećenik sebi. Tako su činili svim Izraelcima što su dolazili onamo, u Šilo.

15 Tako i prije nego bi se spalilo salo, došao bi sluga svećenikov i rekao čovjeku koji je prinosio žrtvu: "Daj mi mesa da ispečem svećeniku! On neće od tebe kuhana mesa nego samo sirovo."

16 Ako bi mu čovjek tada rekao: "Neka se najprije spali salo, a onda uzmi što ti duša želi", on bi odgovorio: "Ne, nego daj odmah! Ako ne daš, uzet ću silom."

17 Grijeh je mladića bio vrlo velik pred Jahvom, jer su ljudi prezirali žrtvu koja se prinosila Jahvi.

18 A Samuel služaše pred Jahvom, još dijete u oplećku lanenom.

19 Mati bi mu njegova napravila dolamicu i donosila mu je svake godine kad bi dolazila s mužem svojim da prinese godišnju žrtvu.

20 A Eli bi blagoslovio Elkanu i njegovu ženu govoreći: "Neka ti Jahve dade poroda od te žene na uzdarje za dar što ga je dala Jahvi." Nato bi se vraćali svojoj kući.

21 Jahve pohodi Anu i ona zatrudnje i rodi još tri sina i dvije kćeri. A mladi je Samuel rastao pred Jahvom.

22 Eli je bio već vrlo star, ali je ipak čuo sve što su njegovi sinovi činili svemu Izraelu.

23 I on im reče: "Zašto radite takvo što da o tome moram slušati od svega ovog naroda?

24 Nemojte tako, sinovi moji! Nisu dobri glasovi što ih čujem ... Sablažnjujete narod Jahvin.

25 Ako čovjek zgriješi čovjeku, Bog će prosuditi. Ali ako čovjek zgriješi Jahvi, tko će se zauzeti za njega?" Ali sinovi ne poslušaše glasa oca svojega, jer je Jahve odlučio da ih pogubi.

26 A mladi je Samuel sve više rastao u dobi i mudrosti i pred Jahvom i pred ljudima.

27 Uto dođe jedan Božji čovjek k Eliju i reče mu: "Ovako govori Jahve: 'Nisam li se jasno objavio domu oca tvojega kad su bili u Egiptu, robovi u kući faraonovoj?

28 Odabrao sam ih između svih plemena Izraelovih da mi budu svećenici, da se uspinju na moj žrtvenik, da prinose žrtve paljenice i da nose oplećak preda mnom: i dao sam domu oca tvojega sve paljene žrtve sinova Izraelovih.

29 Zašto gledaš zavidnim okom žrtvu i prinos što sam ih odredio za svoj Dom? I zašto paziš sinove svoje više nego mene, toveći ih najboljim dijelovima svih žrtvenih prinosa naroda moga Izraela?

30 Zato sam - riječ je Jahve, Boga Izraelova - rekao doduše da će dom tvoj i dom oca tvojega stupati preda mnom dovijeka, ali sada - riječ je Jahvina - neka je to daleko od mene! Jer ja častim one koji mene časte, a koji mene preziru, bit će osramoćeni.

31 Gle, dolaze dani kad ću odsjeći mišicu tvoju i mišicu doma oca tvojega, tako da više neće biti starca u tvom domu.

32 Ti ćeš kivnim okom gledati na sve dobro kojim ću obasuti Izraela, i nikada više neće biti starca u tvom domu.

33 Zadržat ću ipak nekoga od tvojih kod oltara svoga, samo zato da mu sahnu oči i vene duša njegova, ali sve mnoštvo doma tvoga poginut će od ljudskoga mača.

34 Znak će ti biti ono što će stići oba tvoja sina, Hofnija i Pinhasa: obojica će poginuti istoga dana.

35 Ja ću sebi podići vjerna svećenika koji će raditi po mom srcu i po mojoj želji i njemu ću sazdati trajan dom, i on će svagda stupati pred pomazanikom mojim.

36 A koji god ostane od tvoga doma, dolazit će da mu se pokloni i da izmoli srebrn novčić ili hljeb kruha i kazat će: 'Molim te, primi me u kakvu god službu svećeničku, da imam zalogaj kruha.'"

Exploring the Meaning of 1 Samuel 2      

Chapter 2 of the Book of Samuel begins with Hannah’s prayerful song of praise to God. It's a big contrast to the sadness and desperation of her prayer in the previous chapter when she begged for a child. In many ways this is a model for the song that Mary sang, in Luke 1:46-55 after hearing from the angel Gabriel that she was to be the mother of the Lord.

In this chapter, the High Priest, Eli, had grown so old that he had turned his priestly duties over to his sons Hophni and Phinehas. However, these sons were corrupt and had separated themselves from God. They took the best part of the meat offerings for themselves, even before the meat had been properly sacrificed, and took advantage of the woman who worked at the gate of the sanctuary.

That corrupt state is contrasted with the wholesome ministry of the young boy Samuel, who wore a simple tunic (called an ephod) given to him each year by his mother as he grew.

Reports of his sons’ wrongdoings reached Eli, and he pleaded with them to stop, but they did not change their ways and he did nothing to punish them. Then, a messenger from God came with a message of doom for not only the two sons, but for the whole family.

As Anita Dole describes the situation, in her "Bible Study Notes":

"This is a picture of a state in which worship is degraded by being used for self-interest and self-exaltation, and when the high priest in us - that inner dictate which relates us to the Lord - does not take steps to correct the evil, although it sees it. It has become dim of sight and is no longer able to receive directly the voice of the Lord. In 1 Samuel 2:17, quoted above, there is the suggestion of the harm which such a state does to others as well as
to ourselves. Many people are turned against the church by the self-seeking and hypocrisy they see in some of its members. Our duty to keep our worship sincere and to live according to the teachings of the church is not for our own salvation alone. The Lord's service requires of us constant watchfulness and ever-renewed devotion." - Anita Dole, Bible Study Notes, "The Birth of Samuel", © 2001 by The Swedenborg Foundation.

This is a chapter focused on contrasts. On one side are Hannah and Samuel who are faithful to the Lord. We see Hannah praising Him for the wonderful gifts that He provides, especially the gift of her son. This story helps us realize that all children are a gift from God. We should never view them as being our possessions. Instead, they are always God’s children whom we have been blessed to be able to nurture for a time and help grow.

On the other side are the sons of Eli, who profaned what was holy as a mark of self-love and disdain for God.

At the heart of this is a message about true worship. This true worship is a product of heart-felt adoration of God, together with genuine humility (see Arcana Coelestia 1153).
