SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:17 Y Elí respondió, y dijo: Ve en paz, y el Dios de Israel te otorgue la petición que le has hecho.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 1:17 Verse 17. Grant thee thy petition] He was satisfied he had formed a wrong judgment, and by it had added to the distress of one already sufficiently distressed.
The fact that Eli supposed her to be drunken, and the other of the conduct of Eli's sons already mentioned, prove that religion was at this time at a very low ebb in Shiloh; for it seems drunken women did come to the place, and lewd women were to be found there.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 17. Then Eli answered and said, go in peace , etc.] He found he was mistaken in her, and that her discourse was not only sober and rational, but religious and spiritual; and therefore dismisses her in peace, and bids her not distress herself with what he had said to her, nor with anything she had met with from others, or from the Lord; but expect peace and prosperity, and particularly success in what she had been engaged, and had been solicitous for: and the God of Israel grant thee thy petition that thou hast asked of him ; which may be considered either as a prayer for her, he joining with her in a request to the Lord, that what she had asked might be granted; or as a prophecy that so it would be, it being revealed to him by the Holy Ghost, as the high priest of the Lord; or impressed by an impulse upon his spirit that the favour asked would be given; and therefore she might go home in peace, and with satisfaction of mind.
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.
