THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

1 Samuel (Author Compiled by Isaiah from records of Samuel, David, Nathan, and Gad.)

1:4And when the time was that Elkanah offered, he gave to Peninnah his wife, and to all her sons and her daughters, portions:

1:5But unto Hannah he gave a worthy portion; for he loved Hannah: but the LORD had shut up her womb.

1:6And her adversary also provoked her sore, for to make her fret, because the LORD had shut up her womb.

1:7And as he did so year by year, when she went up to the house of the LORD, so she provoked her; therefore she wept, and did not eat.
