1 Ja poikanen Samuel palveli Herraa Eelin johdolla; mutta Herran sana oli harvinainen siihen aikaan, eivätkä näyt olleet tavallisia.

2 Siihen aikaan tapahtui kerran, kun Eeli, jonka silmiä alkoi hämärtää, niin ettei hän voinut nähdä, makasi sijallansa

3 eikä Jumalan lamppu ollut vielä sammunut ja Samuel makasi Herran temppelissä, jossa Jumalan arkki oli,

4 että Herra kutsui Samuelia. Hän vastasi: "Tässä olen".

5 Ja hän riensi Eelin tykö ja sanoi: "Tässä olen, sinä kutsuit minua". Mutta hän vastasi: "En minä kutsunut; pane jälleen maata". Ja hän meni ja pani maata.

6 Mutta Herra kutsui taas Samuelia; ja Samuel nousi ja meni Eelin tykö ja sanoi: "Tässä olen, sinä kutsuit minua". Mutta tämä vastasi: "En minä kutsunut, poikani; pane jälleen maata".

7 Mutta Samuel ei silloin vielä tuntenut Herraa, eikä Herran sana ollut vielä ilmestynyt hänelle.

8 Ja Herra kutsui Samuelia vielä kolmannen kerran; niin hän nousi ja meni Eelin tykö ja sanoi: "Tässä olen, sinä kutsuit minua". Silloin Eeli ymmärsi, että Herra oli kutsunut poikasta.

9 Ja Eeli sanoi Samuelille: "Mene ja pane maata; ja jos sinua vielä kutsutaan, niin sano: 'Puhu, Herra; palvelijasi kuulee'". Samuel meni ja pani maata sijallensa.

10 Niin Herra tuli ja seisoi ja huusi niinkuin edellisilläkin kerroilla: "Samuel, Samuel!" Samuel vastasi: "Puhu, palvelijasi kuulee".

11 Ja Herra sanoi Samuelille: "Katso, minä teen Israelissa sellaisen teon, että joka sen kuulee, sen molemmat korvat soivat.

12 Sinä päivänä minä annan toteutua Eelille kaiken, mitä olen hänen sukuansa vastaan puhunut, alusta loppuun asti.

13 Minä ilmoitan hänelle, että minä tuomitsen hänen sukunsa ikuisiksi ajoiksi sen rikoksen tähden, kun hän tiesi poikiensa pilkkaavan Jumalaa eikä pitänyt heitä kurissa.

14 Sentähden minä olen vannonut Eelin suvusta: 'Totisesti, Eelin suvun rikosta ei koskaan soviteta, ei teurasuhrilla eikä ruokauhrilla'."

15 Ja Samuel makasi aamuun asti ja avasi sitten Herran huoneen ovet. Eikä Samuel uskaltanut kertoa Eelille sitä ilmestystä.

16 Mutta Eeli kutsui Samuelin ja sanoi: "Samuel, poikani!" Hän vastasi: "Tässä olen".

17 Hän sanoi: "Mikä oli asia, josta hän sinulle puhui? Älä salaa sitä minulta. Jumala rangaiskoon sinua nyt ja vasta, jos salaat minulta mitään siitä, mitä hän sinulle puhui."

18 Niin Samuel kertoi hänelle kaiken eikä salannut häneltä mitään. Mutta hän sanoi: "Hän on Herra; hän tehköön, minkä hyväksi näkee".

19 Ja Samuel kasvoi, ja Herra oli hänen kanssansa eikä antanut yhdenkään sanoistansa varista maahan.

20 Ja koko Israel Daanista Beersebaan asti tiesi, että Samuelille oli uskottu Herran profeetan tehtävä.

21 Ja Herra ilmestyi edelleenkin Siilossa; sillä Herra ilmestyi Samuelille Siilossa Herran sanan kautta. Ja Samuelin sana tuli koko Israelille.

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).
