SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:26 Y ella dijo: Â¡Ruego señor mío! Como vive tu alma, señor mío, yo soy aquella mujer que estuvo aquí junto a ti orando al SEÑOR.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 1:26 Verse 26. As thy soul liveth] As sure as thou art a living soul, so surely am I the person who stood by thee here praying.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 26. And she said, O my lord , etc.] According to the Targum, it is a supplication or request, I beseech thee, my lord; that is, to look upon her son, and take him under his care as his disciple or scholar, to instruct him in the law of God, and enter him into his service; to which Eli might be very backward and indifferent, and even treat it with some degree of contempt, that such a young Levite should be brought to him, when the soonest the Levites were admitted was at twenty five years of age: as thy soul liveth, my lord ; which Ben Gersom takes for the form of an oath, as if she swore to the truth of what follows by the life of the high priest; but as it was forbidden to swear by any but by the living God, by his life, it cannot be thought so good a woman as Hannah would be guilty of such a sinful and Heathenish practice; this rather is a wish or prayer for his life and health, and the continuance thereof, to bring up her son in the exercise of true religion: I am the woman that stood by thee here, praying unto the Lord : by which it appears that Eli was now at the tabernacle, and in the same place he was, ( 1 Samuel 1:9) when she was some years ago praying near him, at the distance of four cubits, as the Jews say: she takes no notice of his mistaking her for a drunken woman, nor of his censure on her, and the reproof he gave her; but puts him in mind only of her praying to the Lord standing near to him, which made him take the more notice of her; standing is a prayer posture; the Jews say there is no standing but what is prayer, or prayer is meant by it; (see Gill on “ Matthew 6:5”).
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 __________________________________________________________________
