1 Mládenček pak Samuel přisluhoval Hospodinu při Elí, a řeč Hospodinova byla vzácná v těch dnech, aniž bývalo vidění zjevného.

2 Stalo se pak jednoho dne, když Elí ležel na místě svém, (a již byl počal scházeti na oči, a nemohl viděti),

3 Samuel také spal, a světlo Boží ještě zhašeno nebylo v chrámě Hospodinově, v němž byla truhla Boží,

4 Že zavolal Hospodin Samuele. Kterýž řekl: Teď jsem.

5 I běžel k Elí a řekl: Teď jsem, nebo jsi mne volal. I odpověděl: Nevolal jsem, jdi zase spáti. Kterýž odšed, spal.

6 Opět pak Hospodin zavolal Samuele. A vstav Samuel, šel k Elí a řekl: Teď jsem, nebo jsi mne volal. I odpověděl: Nevolalť jsem, synu můj; jdi zase, spi.

7 Samuel pak ještě neznal Hospodina, a ještě nebyla mu zjevena řeč Hospodinova.

8 Tedy opět Hospodin zavolal Samuele po třetí. Kterýžto vstav, šel k Elí a řekl: Teď jsem, nebo jsi mne volal. Tedy srozuměl Elí, že byl Hospodin volal mládence.

9 I řekl Elí k Samuelovi: Jdi, spi, a bude-li tě volati, řekneš: Mluv, Hospodine, nebo slyší služebník tvůj. Odšel tedy Samuel, a spal na místě svém.

10 I přišel Hospodin, a stál a zavolal, jako i prvé, a řekl: Samueli, Samueli! Odpověděl Samuel: Mluv, nebo slyší služebník tvůj.

11 I řekl Hospodin Samuelovi: Aj, já učiním věc takovou v Izraeli, kterouž kdokoli uslyší, zníti jemu bude v obou uších jeho.

12 V ten den uvedu na Elí všecko to, což jsem mluvil proti domu jeho; počnuť i dokonám.

13 A ukáži jemu, že já soudím dům jeho až na věky pro nepravost, o níž věděl; nebo znaje, že na se zlořečenství uvodí synové jeho, a však nezbránil jim.

14 A protož jsem zapřisáhl domu Elí, že nebude vyčištěna nepravost domu Elí žádnou obětí, ani obětí suchou až na věky.

15 I spal Samuel až do jitra, a otevřel dvéře domu Hospodinova; ostýchal se pak Samuel oznámiti Elí toho vidění.

16 Tedy povolal Elí Samuele a řekl: Samueli, synu můj. Kterýž odpověděl: Teď jsem.

17 I řekl: Jaká jest to řeč, kterouž mluvil tobě? Netaj medle přede mnou. Toto učiň tobě Bůh a toto přidej, jestliže co zatajíš přede mnou ze všech slov, kteráž mluvil tobě.

18 A tak oznámil jemu Samuel všecka slova, a ničeho nezatajil před ním. A on řekl: Hospodinť jest, nechť učiní, což ráčí.

19 Rostl pak Samuel, a Hospodin byl s ním, tak že nedopustil padnouti žádnému slovu jeho na zem.

20 Z čehož poznal všecken Izrael od Dan až do Bersabé, že Samuel jest věrný prorok Hospodinův.

21 Nebo se jemu i potom ukazoval Hospodin v Sílo, jakož se byl prvé zjevil Hospodin Samuelovi v Sílo, skrze řeč Hospodinovu.

Exploring the Meaning of 1_Samuel 3      

Chapter 3 features the beautiful story of the “Call of Samuel”. The story begins when young Samuel hears a voice calling to him in the night, as he lies down to sleep. Thinking that it must be Eli calling, Samuel runs to Eli, who is now old and blind, to ask what he wants. Eli says that he didn't call, and tells Samuel to return to bed. This happens two more times, and each time Samuel hears the voice calling, he goes to Eli. On the third occasion, Eli realizes that it must be the Lord's voice that Samuel is hearing. Eli then instructs him to respond to the voice with the words, “Speak, Lord, for your servant hears.” When the Lord calls him again, this is how Samuel responds.

God’s words to Samuel are clear. Because Eli’s sons had done things that were vile, and Eli had not restrained them, no amount of sacrifice could spare them from the consequences. In the morning, Eli begs Samuel to share what the Lord said to him. After Samuel shares God’s message, Eli accepts that the Lord would do to him and his family as He saw fit.

Samuel is called by the Lord three times before he realizes the nature of the voice, and answers. This is an example of the numeric symbolism found throughout Scripture. In this story, the number three represents a form of Divine completeness. Therefore when Samuel is called three times, it represents the completion of a personal process, resulting in a new ability to receive God’s message (see Apocalypse Revealed 505).

Swedenborg’s writings explain that to “hear” represents to perceive, to learn and come to understand. When Samuel hears and replies to the Lord, he is demonstrating that he is willing to listen to and understand God. For us, it's a similar thing. We may not hear the voice of God calling in the night, but we can make space in our lives to try to tune in to his message, in the Word, and in good, wise people who we can learn from.

The expression “to hear” can also signify to obey, and in this story we can see Samuel accepting his role as prophet, i.e. to understand and obey God. So, too, we can recognize His message and begin to live a life of faithful obedience (see Apocalypse Explained 14).

The literal story seems to suggest that the Lord would punish Eli and his sons for the wrongs they had done. However, the truth as shared in Swedenborgian teachings is that the Lord never destroys, or is even angry. Instead, evil distances a person from His protection and therefore leaves them vulnerable to the destruction that comes from the evil itself (see Arcana Coelestia 588).
