SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:13 Mas Ana hablaba en su corazón, y solamente se movían sus labios, y su voz no se oía; y la tuvo Elí por borracha.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 1:13 Verse 13. Spake in her heart; only her lips moved] She prayed; her whole heart was engaged: and though she spake not with an audible voice, yet her lips formed themselves according to the pronunciation of the words which her heart uttered.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 13. Now Hannah, she spake in her heart , etc.] It was mental prayer she used, some ejaculations of her mind she sent up to God, which she was sensible were well known to him, and she needed not to express vocally: only her lips moved ; as her heart spoke, and sent up her petitions, as if she had used words and phrases in form: but her voice was not heard : that she might not seem to be ostentatious in her prayer, and that she might not interrupt others in their devotions; and she knew that her voice was not necessary with respect to God: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken ; by the motions she made, and gestures she used, as if she was muttering something to herself, and by her long continuance therein, and it being after a feast she had been at with her husband, and the rest of the family; from all which Eli concluded this must be her case.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 9-18 - Hannah mingled tears with her prayers; she considered the mercy of ou God, who knows the troubled soul. God gives us leave, in prayer, no only to ask good things in general, but to mention that special goo thing we most need and desire. She spoke softly, none could hear her Hereby she testified her belief of God's knowledge of the heart and it desires. Eli was high priest, and judge in Israel. It ill becomes us to be rash and hasty in censures of others, and to think people guilty of bad things while the matter is doubtful and unproved. Hannah did no retort the charge, and upbraid Eli with the wicked conduct of his ow sons. When we are at any time unjustly censured, we have need to set double watch before the door of our lips, that we do not return censur for censure. Hannah thought it enough to clear herself, and so must we Eli was willing to acknowledge his mistake. Hannah went away with satisfaction of mind. She had herself by prayer committed her case to God, and Eli had prayed for her. Prayer is heart's ease to a graciou soul. Prayer will smooth the countenance; it should do so. None wil long remain miserable, who use aright the privilege of going to the mercy-seat of a reconciled God in Christ Jesus.
