|1 Samuel 1:13-18 |
13 Now Hannah, spoke in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard; therefore Eli thought she was drunk.
14 And Eli said to her, "How long will you be drunken? Put away your wine from you."
15 And Hannah answered and said, "No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit. I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the LORD.
16 Do not number your handmaid as a daughter of Belial for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief I have spoken here."
17 Then Eli answered and said, "Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant you your petition that you have asked of him."
18 She said, "Let your handmaid find grace in your sight." So the woman went her way, and she ate, and her countenance was no longer sad.
