1 Så gjorde nu den unge Samuel tjänst inför HERREN under Eli. Och HERRENS ord var sällsynt på den tiden, profetsyner voro icke vanliga.

2 Då nu en gång Eli, vilkens ögon hade begynt att bliva skumma, så att han icke kunde se, låg och sov på sin plats,

3 innan ännu Guds lampa hade slocknat, och medan också Samuel låg och sov, då hände sig i HERRENS tempel, där Guds ark stod,

4 att HERREN ropade på Samuel Denne svarade: »Här är jag.»

5 Därefter skyndade han till Eli och sade: »Här är jag; du ropade ju på mig.» Men han svarade: »Jag har icke ropat; gå tillbaka och lägg dig.» Och han gick och lade sig.

6 Men HERREN ropade ännu en gång på Samuel; och Samuel stod upp och gick till Eli och sade: »Här är jag; du ropade ju på mig.» Men han svarade: »Jag har icke ropat, min son; gå tillbaka och lägg dig.»

7 Samuel hade nämligen ännu icke lärt att känna igen HERREN, och ännu hade icke något HERRENS ord blivit uppenbarat för honom.

8 Men HERREN ropade åter på Samuel, för tredje gången; och han stod upp och gick till Eli och sade: »Här är jag; du ropade ju på mig. Då förstod Eli att det var HERREN som ropade på ynglingen.

9 Därför sade Eli till Samuel: »Gå och lägg dig; och om han vidare ropar på dig, så säg: 'Tala, HERRE; din tjänare hör.» Och Samuel gick och lade sig på sin plats.

10 kom HERREN och ställde sig där och ropade såsom de förra gångerna: »Samuel! SamuelSamuel svarade: »Tala, din tjänare hör

11 Då sade HERREN till Samuel: »Se, jag skall i Israel göra något som kommer att genljuda i båda öronen på var och en som får höra det.

12 På den dagen skall jag låta komma över Eli allt vad jag har uttalat över hans hus, det första till det sista.

13 Ty jag har förkunnat för honom att jag skall vara domare över hans hus till evig tid, därför att han har syndat, i det han visste huru hans söner drogo förbannelse över sig och dock icke höll dem tillbaka.

14 Därför har jag ock med ed betygat om Elis hus: Sannerligen, Elis hus' missgärning skall icke någonsin kunna försonas, vare sig med slaktoffer eller med någon annat offergåva.»

15 Och Samuel låg kvar ända tills morgonen, då han öppnade dörrarna till HERRENS hus. Och Samuel fruktade för att omtala synen for Eli.

16 Men Eli ropade på Samuel och sade: »Samuel, min son! Denne svarade: »Här är jag.»

17 Han sade: »Vad var det han ta lade till dig? Dölj det icke för mig. Gud straffe dig nu och framgent, om du döljer for mig något enda ord av det han talade till dig.»

18 Då omtalade Samuel för honom alltsammans och dolde intet för honom. Och han sade: »Han är HERREN; han göre vad honom täckes.

19 Men Samuel växte upp, och HERREN var med honom och lät intet av allt vad han hade talat falla till jorden.

20 Och hela Israel, från Dan ända till Beer-Seba, förstod att Samuel var betrodd att vara HERRENS profet.

21 Och HERREN fortfor att låta se sig i Silo; ty HERREN uppenbarade sig för Samuel i Silo genom HERRENS ord.

22 Och Samuels ord kom till hela Israel.

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).
