SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:4 Y cuando venía el día, Elcana sacrificaba, y daba a Penina su mujer, a todos sus hijos y a todas sus hijas, a cada uno su parte.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Samuel 1:4 Verse 4. He gave-portions] The sacrifices which were made were probably peace-offerings, of which the blood was poured out at the foot of the altar; the fat was burnt on the fire; the breast and right shoulder were the portion of the priest, and the rest belonged to him who made the offering; on it he and his family feasted, each receiving his portion; and to these feasts God commands them to invite the Levite, the poor, the widow, and the orphan, Deut. xvi. 11.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 4. And when the time was that Elkanah offered , etc.] That is, brought his offering to the priest, to offer it for him, which was at one of the three festivals. According to R. Joshua Ben Levi f12 , this was at the time of Pentecost; but Abarbinel thinks it was at the time of the ingathering of the fruits of the earth, which was a time of rejoicing, even the feast of tabernacles, and which is most likely: he gave to Peninnah his wife, and to all her sons and her daughters, portions ; parts of the offering, everyone a part, or portion; by which it appears, that this was a peace offering he offered, the greater part of which belonged to the owner, and which he made a feast of for his family and friends; (see Deuteronomy 12:5-7 16:10-15). Jerom interprets these portions of garments.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-8 - Elkanah kept up his attendance at God's altar, notwithstanding the unhappy differences in his family. If the devotions of a family prevai not to put an end to its divisions, yet let not the divisions put stop to the devotions. To abate our just love to any relation for the sake of any infirmity which they cannot help, and which is their affliction, is to make God's providence quarrel with his precept, an very unkindly to add affliction to the afflicted. It is evidence of base disposition, to delight in grieving those who are of a sorrowfu spirit, and in putting those out of humour who are apt to fret and be uneasy. We ought to bear one another's burdens, not add to them. Hanna could not bear the provocation. Those who are of a fretful spirit, an are apt to lay provocations too much to heart, are enemies to themselves, and strip themselves of many comforts both of life an godliness. We ought to notice comforts, to keep us from grieving for crosses. We should look at that which is for us, as well as what is against us.
