1 La knabo Samuel servadis al la Eternulo antaux Eli; kaj la vorto de la Eternulo estis grandpreza en tiu tempo; ne aperadis ofte profetaj vizioj.

2 En tiu tempo unu fojon Eli kusxis sur sia loko (lia vidado komencis malakrigxi, ke li ne povis vidi);

3 kaj la lucerno de Dio ankoraux ne estingigxis, kaj Samuel kusxis en la templo de la Eternulo, kie estis la kesto de Dio;

4 tiam la Eternulo vokis Samuelon, kaj cxi tiu diris:Jen mi estas.

5 Kaj li kuris al Eli, kaj diris:Jen mi estas, kiel vi vokis min. Sed tiu diris:Mi ne vokis; iru returne kaj kusxigxu. Kaj li iris kaj kusxigxis.

6 Kaj la Eternulo denove vokis Samuelon, kaj Samuel levigxis kaj iris al Eli, kaj diris:Jen mi estas, kiel vi vokis min. Sed tiu diris:Mi ne vokis, mia filo; iru returne kaj kusxigxu.

7 Samuel ankoraux ne konis la Eternulon, kaj ankoraux ne estis revelaciita al li la vorto de la Eternulo.

8 Kaj la Eternulo denove vokis Samuelon la trian fojon; kaj li levigxis kaj iris al Eli, kaj diris:Jen mi estas, kiel vi vokis min. Tiam Eli komprenis, ke la Eternulo vokas la knabon.

9 Kaj Eli diris al Samuel:Iru, kusxigxu; kaj se vi estos vokata, tiam diru:Parolu, ho Eternulo, cxar Via sklavo auxskultas. Kaj Samuel iris kaj kusxigxis sur sia loko.

10 Kaj venis la Eternulo kaj starigxis, kaj vokis kiel la antauxajn fojojn:Samuel, Samuel! Kaj Samuel diris:Parolu, cxar Via sklavo auxskultas.

11 Tiam la Eternulo diris al Samuel:Jen Mi faros en Izrael tian faron, ke al cxiu, kiu tion auxdos, eksonoros ambaux liaj oreloj.

12 En tiu tago Mi plenumos super Eli cxion, kion Mi diris pri lia domo; Mi komencos kaj finos.

13 Mi sciigis al li, ke Mi jugxos lian domon por cxiam pro la krimo, ke li sciis, ke liaj filoj venigas malbenon sur sin, kaj li ne detenis ilin.

14 Kaj tial Mi jxuris al la domo de Eli, ke neniam pekliberigxos la krimo de la domo de Eli per bucxofero nek per farunofero.

15 Kaj Samuel kusxis gxis la mateno; poste li malfermis la pordojn de la domo de la Eternulo. Sed Samuel timis raporti pri la vizio al Eli.

16 Kaj Eli vokis Samuelon, kaj diris:Samuel, mia filo! Kaj cxi tiu diris:Jen mi estas.

17 Kaj tiu diris:Kia estas la afero, pri kiu Li parolis al vi? mi petas, ne kasxu antaux mi; tion kaj ankoraux pli faru al vi Dio, se vi kasxos antaux mi ion el cxio, kion Li diris al vi.

18 Kaj Samuel rakontis al li cxion, kaj nenion kasxis antaux li. Kaj li diris:Li estas la Eternulo; Li faru tion, kio placxas al Li.

19 Kaj Samuel kreskis, kaj la Eternulo estis kun li; kaj neniun el Liaj vortoj li faligis sur la teron.

20 Kaj eksciis la tuta Izrael, de Dan gxis Beer-SXeba, ke Samuel farigxis fidinda profeto de la Eternulo.

21 Kaj la Eternulo plue aperadis en SXilo, post kiam la Eternulo revelaciis Sin al Samuel en SXilo per la parolo de la Eternulo.

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).
