3:4 that Yahweh called Samuel; and he said, Here am I.
3:5 He ran to Eli, and said, Here am I; for you called me. He said, I didn`t call; lie down again. He went and lay down.
3:6 Yahweh called yet again, Samuel. Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for you called me. He answered, I didn`t call, my son; lie down again.
3:7 Now Samuel didn`t yet know Yahweh, neither was the word of Yahweh yet revealed to him.
3:9 Therefore Eli said to Samuel, Go, lie down: and it shall be, if he call you, that you shall say, Speak, Yahweh; for your servant hears. So Samuel went and lay down in his place.
3:10 Yahweh came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel said, Speak; for your servant hears.
3:11 Yahweh said to Samuel, Behold, I will do a thing in Israel, at which both the ears of everyone who hears it shall tingle.
3:12 In that day I will perform against Eli all that I have spoken concerning his house, from the beginning even to the end.
3:13 For I have told him that I will judge his house forever, for the iniquity which he knew, because his sons did bring a curse on themselves, and he didn`t restrain them.
3:14 Therefore I have sworn to the house of Eli, that the iniquity of Eli`s house shall not be expiated with sacrifice nor offering forever.
3:16 Then Eli called Samuel, and said, Samuel, my son. He said, Here am I.
3:17 He said, "What is the thing that [Yahweh] has spoken to you? Please don`t hide it from me. God do so to you, and more also, if you hide anything from me of all the things that he spoke to you."
3:18 Samuel told him every whit, and hid nothing from him. He said, It is Yahweh: let him do what seems him good.
3:20 All Israel from Dan even to Beersheba knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of Yahweh.
3:21 Yahweh appeared again in Shiloh; for Yahweh revealed himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of Yahweh.
