1 Genç Samuel Elinin yönetimi altında RABbe hizmet ediyordu. O günlerde RABbin sözü seyrek geliyordu; görümler de azalmıştı.

2 Bir gece Eli yatağında uyuyordu. Gözleri öyle zayıflamıştı ki, güçlükle görebiliyordu.

3 Samuel ise RABbin Tapınağında, Tanrının Sandığının bulunduğu yerde uyuyordu. Tanrının kandili daha sönmemişti.

4 RAB Samuele seslendi. Samuel, ‹‹Buradayım›› diye karşılık verdi.

5 Ardından Eliye koşup, ‹‹Beni çağırdın, işte buradayım›› dedi. Ama Eli, ‹‹Ben çağırmadım, dön yat›› diye karşılık verdi. Samuel de dönüp yattı.

6 RAB yine, ‹‹Samuel!›› diye seslendi. Samuel kalkıp Eliye gitti ve, ‹‹İşte, buradayım, beni çağırdın›› dedi. Eli, ‹‹Çağırmadım, oğlum›› diye karşılık verdi, ‹‹Dön yat.››

7 Samuel RABbi daha tanımıyordu; RABbin sözü henüz ona açıklanmamıştı.

8 RAB yine üçüncü kez Samuele seslendi. Samuel kalkıp Eliye gitti. ‹‹İşte buradayım, beni çağırdın›› dedi. O zaman Eli genç Samuele RABbin seslendiğini anladı.

9 Bunun üzerine Samuele, ‹‹Git yat›› dedi, ‹‹Sana yine seslenirse, ‹Konuş, ya RAB, kulun dinliyor› dersin.›› Samuel gidip yerine yattı.

10 RAB gelip orada durdu ve önceki gibi, ‹‹Samuel, Samuel!›› diye seslendi. Samuel, ‹‹Konuş, kulun dinliyor›› diye yanıtladı.

11 RAB Samuele şöyle dedi: ‹‹Ben İsrailde her duyanı şaşkına çevirecek bir şey yapmak üzereyim.

12 O gün Elinin ailesine karşı söylediğim her şeyi baştan sona dek yerine getireceğim.

13 Çünkü farkında olduğu günahtan ötürü ailesini sonsuza dek yargılayacağımı Eliye bildirdim. Oğulları Tanrıya saygısızlık ettiler. Eli de onlara engel olmadı.

14 Bu nedenle, ‹Elinin ailesinin günahı hiçbir zaman kurban ya da sunuyla bile bağışlanmayacaktır› diyerek Elinin ailesi hakkında ant içtim.›› ‹‹Tanrıya saygısızlık ettiler››, Masoretik metin ‹‹Başlarına lanet getirdiler››.

15 Samuel sabaha kadar yattı, sonra RABbin Tapınağının kapılarını açtı. Gördüğü görümü Eliye söylemekten çekiniyordu.

16 Ama Eli ona, ‹‹Oğlum Samuel!›› diye seslendi. Samuel, ‹‹İşte buradayım›› diye yanıtladı.

17 Eli, ‹‹RAB sana neler söyledi?›› diye sordu, ‹‹Lütfen benden gizleme. Sana söylediklerinden birini bile benden gizlersen, Tanrı sana aynısını, hatta daha kötüsünü yapsın!››

18 Bunun üzerine Samuel hiçbir şey gizlemeden ona her şeyi anlattı. Eli de, ‹‹O RABdir, gözünde iyi olanı yapsın›› dedi.

19 Samuel büyürken RAB onunla birlikteydi. RAB ona verdiği sözlerin hiçbirinin boşa çıkmasına izin vermedi.

20 Samuelin RABbin bir peygamberi olarak onaylandığını Dandan Beer-Şevaya kadar bütün İsrail anladı.

21 RAB Şilo'da görünmeyi sürdürdü. Orada sözü aracılığıyla kendisini Samuel'e tanıttı.

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).
