1 Samuel 1:10-13 Living Bible (TLB)

10 She was in deep anguish and was crying bitterly as she prayed to the Lord.

11 And she made this vow: “O Lord of heaven, if you will look down upon my sorrow and answer my prayer and give me a son, then I will give him back to you, and he’ll be yours for his entire lifetime, and his hair shall never be cut.”[a]

12-13 Eli noticed her mouth moving as she was praying silently and, hearing no sound, thought she had been drinking.

Footnotes:

  1. 1 Samuel 1:11 and his hair shall never be cut. This was an approved custom for those who were wholly dedicated to God.
