SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:24 Y después que lo hubo destetado, lo llevó consigo, con tres becerros, un efa de harina, y un odre de vino, y lo trajo a la Casa del SEÑOR en Silo; y el niño era aún pequeño.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 1:24 Verse 24. With three bullocks] The Septuagint, the Syriac, and the Arabic, read, a bullock of three years old; and this is probably correct, because we read, ver. 25, that they slew ta rph eth happar, THE bullock. We hear of no more, and we know that a bullock or heifer of three years old was ordinarily used, see Gen. xv. 9.
One ephah of flour] Seven gallons and a half.
A bottle of wine] yy lbn nebel yayin, a skin full of wine. Their bottles for wine and fluids in general were made out of skins of goats, stripped off without being cut up; the places whence the legs were extracted sewed up, as also the lower part; and the top tied. She the notes on Gen. xxi. 14, and Matt. ix. 17. These three things, the ox, the flour, and the wine, probably constituted the consecration-offering.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 24. And when she had weaned him , etc.] At the usual time of weaning children; (see Gill on “ 1 Samuel 1:23”) some refer this not only to the milk of the breast, from which he was weaned, but to such food as was common to children, and so supposes him grown up to nine or ten years of age: she took him up with her ; to the tabernacle at Shiloh, at a yearly festival: with three bullocks; for three sorts of offerings, burnt offering, sin offering, and peace offering; or since one only is spoken of as slain, that is, for sacrifice, the other two might be for food to entertain her family and friends with while there; or as a present to the high priest, to whose care she committed her son: and one ephah of flour ; if the bullocks were all sacrificed, three tenth deals, or three tenth parts of the ephah, went for a meat offering to each bullock, which made nine parts out of ten, and the tenth part she had to dispose of at pleasure; (see Numbers 15:9), though that seems to be restrained to a burnt offering only: and a bottle of wine ; part of which might be for the drink offering which always attended a meat offering, and the rest for her own use, and that of her friends: and brought him unto the house of the Lord in Shiloh : the tabernacle there, and delivered him up to the care of the high priest, to be trained up in the service of God: and the child was young ; a very child, very young in years, a little infant; not a sucking child, as the Targum, because weaned, otherwise of a very tender age; though some think this expresses that he was a well grown lad, and was sharp and acute, and could well distinguish between good and evil.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 19-28 - Elkanah and his family had a journey before them, and a family of children to take with them, yet they would not move till they ha worshipped God together. Prayer and provender do not hinder a journey When men are in such haste to set out upon journeys, or to engage in business, that they have not time to worship God, they are likely to proceed without his presence and blessing. Hannah, though she felt warm regard for the courts of God's house, begged to stay at home. God will have mercy, and not sacrifice. Those who are detained from publi ordinances, by the nursing and tending of little children, may tak comfort from this instance, and believe, that if they do that duty in right spirit, God will graciously accept them therein. Hannah presented her child to the Lord with a grateful acknowledgment of his goodness in answer to prayer. Whatever we give to God, it is what we have firs asked and received from him. All our gifts to him were first his gift to us. The child Samuel early showed true piety. Little children shoul be taught to worship God when very young. Their parents should teac them in it, bring them to it, and put them on doing it as well as the can; God will graciously accept them, and will teach them to do better __________________________________________________________________
