1 Ja poiss Saamuel teenis Issandat Eeli juhatusel; Issanda sõna oli neil päevil haruldane, nägemused ei olnud sagedased.

2 Aga kord kui Eeli, kelle silmad hakkasid tuhmiks jääma, nõnda et ta enam ei näinud, magas oma asemel,

3 kui Jumala lamp ei olnud veel kustunud ja Saamuel magas Issanda templis, seal, kus oli Jumala laegas,

4 hüüdis Issand Saamueli. Ja tema vastas: 'Siin ma olen!'

5 Ja ta jooksis Eeli juurde ning ütles: 'Siin ma olen, sest sa ju hüüdsid mind!' Aga tema vastas: 'Mina pole sind hüüdnud. Mine tagasi, heida magama!' Ja ta läks ning heitis magama.

6 Aga Issand hüüdis jälle: 'Saamuel!' Ja Saamuel tõusis ning läks Eeli juurde ja ütles: 'Siin ma olen, sest sa ju hüüdsid mind!' Aga tema vastas: 'Mina pole sind hüüdnud, mu poeg. Mine tagasi, heida magama!'

7 Aga Saamuel ei tundnud veel Issandat ja Issanda sõna ei olnud temale veel ilmutatud.

8 Ja Issand hüüdis Saamueli veel kolmandat korda. Ja ta tõusis ning läks Eeli juurde ja ütles: 'Siin ma olen, sest sa ju hüüdsid mind!' Siis Eeli mõistis, et Issand oli hüüdnud poissi.

9 Ja Eeli ütles Saamuelile: 'Mine heida magama, ja kui sind hüütakse, siis ütle: Issand, räägi, sest su sulane kuuleb!'

10 Ja Issand tuli ning seisis ja hüüdis nagu eelmistel kordadel: 'Saamuel! Saamuel!' Ja Saamuel vastas: 'Räägi, sest su sulane kuuleb!'

11 Ja Issand ütles Saamuelile: 'Vaata, mina teen Iisraelis midagi, mis igaühel, kes sellest kuuleb, paneb mõlemad kõrvad kumisema.

12 Sel päeval tahan ma Eelile tõeks teha kõik, mis ma tema soo kohta olen rääkinud, algusest lõpuni.

13 Ma olen ju talle kuulutanud, et ma mõistan igavesti kohut tema soo üle patu pärast, sest kuigi ta teadis, et ta pojad olid tõmmanud eneste peale needuse, ei ohjeldanud ta neid mitte.

14 Ja seepärast olen ma vandunud Eeli soole: Iialgi ei lepitata Eeli soo pattu, ei tapa- ega roaohvriga!'

15 Saamuel magas hommikuni ja avas alles siis Issanda koja uksed; aga Saamuel kartis jutustada nägemust Eelile.

16 Siis Eeli hüüdis Saamueli ja ütles: 'Saamuel, mu poeg!' Ja see vastas: 'Siin ma olen!'

17 Ja Eeli küsis: 'Mis asi see oli, mis ta sulle rääkis? Ära ometi minu ees salga! Issand tehku sinuga seda ja teist, kui sa minu ees midagi salgad kõigest sellest, mis ta sulle rääkis!'

18 Siis jutustas Saamuel temale kõik ega salanud tema ees midagi. Ja Eeli ütles: 'Tema on Issand, tehku tema, mis ta silmis hea on!'

19 Ja Saamuel kasvas ning Issand oli temaga ega lasknud ainsatki oma sõna tühja minna.

20 Ja kogu Iisrael Daanist kuni Beer-Sebani sai teada, et Saamuelist oli saanud ustav Issanda prohvet.

21 Ja Issand näitas ennast edaspidigi Siilos, sest Issand ilmutas ennast Siilos Saamuelile Issanda sõna läbi.

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).
