1 Samuel 1:1-28
1. There was a man of Ramathaim Zophim, of mount Ephraim named Elkanah, the son of Jeroham, the son of Elihu, the son of Thohu, the son of Zuph an Ephrathite:
2. which had two wives, the one called Hannah and the other Phenennah. And Phenennah had children, but Hannah had none.
3. And the said man went out of his city every feastful day, to pray and to offer unto the LORD of Hosts: where the two sons of Eli (Hophni and Phinehes) were the LORD's priests.
4. And it fell on a day as Elkanah had offered that he gave to Phenennah his wife and to all her sons and daughters portions.
5. But unto Hannah he gave a portion with a heavy cheer, for he loved her, nevertheless the LORD had made her barren.
6. And thereto her enemy Phenennah vexed her a good in casting her in the teeth how the LORD had made her barren.
7. And so did she year by year as oft as she went up to the house of the LORD. And so chafed her: wherefore Hannah wept and ate not.
8. Then said Elkanah her husband to her: Hannah why weepest thou? and why eatest thou not? and why is thine heart so troubled? am not I better to thee, than ten sons
9. Then Hannah rose up after that they had eaten and drunk in Siloh. And Eli the priest sat upon a stool by one of the side posts of the temple of the LORD.
10. And she was troubled in her spirits, and prayed unto the LORD and wept sore,
11. and vowed a vow and said: LORD of Hosts, if thou wilt look on the wretchedness of thine handmaid and shalt remember me and not forget thine handmaid, and shalt give unto thine handmaid a man child I will give him unto the LORD, all the days of his life and there shall neither razor or shears come upon his head.
12. And as she continued praying before the LORD, Eli marked her mouth.
13. For Hannah she spake in her heart, and her lips did but move onely, but her voice was not heard. And therefore Eli took her for drunken,
14. and said unto her, how long wilt thou be drunken? put away from thee, the wine that thou hast.
15. Hannah answered and said: not so my lord, I am a woman sorrowful in mine heart, and have drunk neither wine nor any strong drink, but I have poured out my soul before the LORD.
16. Count not thine handmaid to be like a daughter of unthriftiness: for out of the abundance of my meditation and grief have I spoken hitherto.
17. Eli answered and said: go in peace, the God of Israel shall grant thee thy petition that thou hast asked of him.
18. Then she said, let thine handmaid find grace(favour) in thy sight. And so the woman went her way, and did eat and looked no more so sad.
19. And they rose up early and bowed themselves before the LORD, and then returned and went to their house to Ramath. And Elkanah lay by his wife Hannah, and the LORD remembered her.
20. And in process of time she conceived and bare a son and called his name Samuel: because she had asked him of the LORD.
21. And Elkanah and all his house went up to offer unto the LORD, both the offerings due for the feast and also his vows:
22. but Hannah went not up for she said unto her husband: I will tarry until the lad be weaned, and then I will bring him, that he may appear before the LORD and there abide for ever.
23. And Elkanah her husband said to her: do what seemeth thee best: tarry until thou hast weaned him, only the LORD make good his saying. And so the woman abode and gave her son suck, until she weaned him.
24. And then she took him with her, when she had weaned him, with three bullocks and an Epha of flour and a bottle of wine, and brought him into the house of the LORD in Siloh, how be it the child was yet young.
25. And they slew the bullocks and brought in the lad to Eli,
26. and then she said: Oh my lord: as truly as thy soul liveth my lord: I am the woman that stood by thee here, praying unto the LORD
27. and for this lad I prayed, and the LORD hath given me my desire which I asked of him:
28. and therefore I also lend him the LORD, as long as he may be lent the LORD. And so they prayed there unto the LORD.

1 Samuel 2:1-36
1. And Hannah prayed and said: mine heart rejoiceth in the LORD, mine horn is high in the LORD and my mouth is wide open over mine enemies, for I rejoice in thy saving.
2. There is none so holy as the LORD: no there is none save thou. Neither is there any strength like unto our God.
3. Talk not too much proudly: let old things depart out of your mouths, for the LORD is a God of knowledge, and judgeth the thoughts.
4. The bows of the strong are broken: and the weak are endued with strength.
5. They that were full, have hired out themselves for bread, and they that were hungry cease so to be: insomuch that the barren hath borne seven, and she that had many children is waxed feeble.
6. The LORD killeth and maketh alive, bringeth down to hell and fetcheth up again.
7. The LORD maketh poor, and maketh rich, bringeth low, and heaveth up on high.(He bringeth low and exalteth)
8. He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill: to set them among princes, and to inherit them with the seat of glory. For the pillars of the earth are the LORD's, and he hath set the round world upon them.
9. He will keep the feet of his saints but the wicked shall keep silence in darkness. For in his own might shall no man be strong.
10. The LORD's adversaries shall be made to fear him: and out of heaven he shall thunder upon them. The LORD shall judge the ends of the world, and shall give might unto his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed.
11. And Elkanah went to Ramath to his house, and the lad did minister unto the LORD before Eli the priest.
12. But the sons of Eli were unthrifty children and knew not the LORD. For the manner of the priests with the people was,
13. whensoever any man offered any offerings the priest's lad came, while the flesh was in seething, and a flesh hook with three teeth in his hand,
14. and thrust it into the pan, kettle, cauldron or pot. And all that the flesh hook brought up the priest took away. And so they did unto all Israel that came thither to Siloh.
15. Yea: and thereto before they had offered the fat, the priest's lad came and said to the man that offered: give flesh to roast for the priest, for he will not have sodden flesh of thee, but raw.
16. And if any man said unto him, let the fat be offered according to the day, and then take as much as thine heart desireth. The lad would answer him, thou shalt give it me now, or else I will take it with violence.
17. And the sin of the young men was very great before the LORD. For they despised the people and also the offering of the LORD.
18. But the lad Samuel ministered before the LORD girded about with a linen Ephod.
19. Moreover his mother made him a little coat, and brought it to him from feast to feast when she came up with her husband to offer the offering of the said feast.
20. And Eli blessed Elkanah and his wife, and said: the LORD give thee seed of this woman, for that she hath lent the LORD. And they went unto their own home.
21. And the LORD visited Hannah for that she conceived and bare three sons and two daughters. But the boy Samuel grew dwelling still with the LORD.
22. Eli was very old and heard all that his sons did unto all Israel, and how they slept with the women that waited in the door of the tabernacle of witness,
23. and said unto them: why do ye such things? For I hear your wicked deeds of all these people.
24. Oh, nay my sons: For it is no good report that I hear how that ye make the LORD's people to trespass.
25. If one man sin against another, daysmen may make his peace: but if a man sin against the LORD, who can be his daysman? Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto the voice of their father, because the LORD would slay them.
26. The child Samuel profited and grew, and was in favour both with the LORD and also with men.
27. And there came a man of God unto Eli and said unto him: thus sayeth the LORD. I appeared unto the house of thy father, when they were in Egypt in Pharao's house.
28. And I chose thy father out of all the tribes of Israel to be my priest for to offer upon mine altar and to burn incense, and to wear an Ephod before me. And I gave unto the house of thy father all the offerings of the children of Israel.
29. Wherefore kick ye against my sacrifice and against mine offering which I command in the tabernacle, and honourest thy children above me, and make yourselves fat of the first fruits of all the offerings of Israel my people?
30. Wherefore the LORD God of Israel sayeth: I said that thine house and the house of thy father should have walked before me for ever. But now the LORD sayeth that be far from me: for them that worship(honoureth) me I will worship,(honour) and they that despise me, shall be despised,(not be regarded.)
31. Behold the days will come that I will cut off thine arm and the arm of thy father's house, that there shall not be an elder in thine house.
32. And thou shalt see thine enemy in the tabernacle, in all that shall please Israel, and there shall not be an elder in thine house while the world standeth.
33. Nevertheless I will not destroy all thy males from my altar, to daze thy sight with all and to make thine heart melt. And all the multitude of thine house shall die young.
34. And this shall be a sign unto thee, that shall come upon thy two sons, Hophni and Phinehes: even in one day they shall die both of them.
35. And I will stir me up a faithful priest that shall do as it is in mine heart and in my mind. And I will build him a sure house. And he shall walk before mine anointed for ever.
36. And they that are left in thine house, shall come and crouch to him for a little piece of silver and a cake of bread, and shall say: put me I pray thee in one office or other among the priests, that I may eat a morsel of bread.

1 Samuel 3:1-21
1. And the child Samuel ministered unto the LORD before Eli: and the word of the LORD was precious in those days for there was none open vision.
2. And it chanced at that time, that Eli lay in his place, and his eyes began to wax dim that he could not see.
3. And yer the lamp of God went out Samuel laid him down to sleep, in the temple of the LORD, where the ark of God was.
4. And the LORD called Samuel: and he said, here am I,
5. and he ran unto Eli and said here am I for thou calledest me. And he said I called thee not: go again and sleep. And he went and laid him down to sleep.
6. And the LORD called once again: Samuel, and Samuel arose and went to Eli and said: I am here, thou didst call me. And he answered: I called thee not my son. Go again and take thy rest:
7. but it was yer Samuel knew the LORD and yer the word of the LORD was opened unto him.
8. And the LORD went and called Samuel the third time. And he arose and went to Eli and said: I am here, for thou hast called me. Then Eli perceived that the LORD had called the lad.
9. And said unto him, go and lie down: and if he call thee again then say, speak on LORD, for thy servant heareth. And Samuel went and laid him down in his place.
10. And the LORD came and stood and called as before, Samuel, Samuel. And Samuel said: speak on, for thy servant heareth thee.
11. And the LORD said to Samuel: behold, I will do a thing in Israel, that the ears of as many as heareth it, shall tingle.
12. In that day I will perform to Eli, all that I have spoken concerning his house: I will begin it and end it.
13. For I have told him that I will judge his house for ever. For the wickedness which he knoweth, how his sons are ungracious, and he was not wroth therewith.
14. And therefore I have sworn unto the house of Eli, that the wickedness of Eli's house, shall not be purged with sacrifice nor offering, while the world standeth.
15. And Samuel lay till morning and then opened the doors of the house of the LORD. But Samuel feared, to shew Eli the vision.
16. Then Eli called Samuel and said: Samuel my son. And he answered here I am.
17. And he said what is that he said unto thee? See ye hide it not from me. The LORD do so and so to thee, if thou hide anything from me, of all that he said unto thee.
18. And Samuel told him every whit and hid it not from him. And he answered: it is the LORD, let him do what seemeth him best.
19. And Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him, and left none of his words unperformed.
20. And all Israel from Dan to Bersabe wist that Samuel was truly made the LORD's prophet.
21. And the LORD appeared again in Siloh: for the LORD opened himself to Samuel in Siloh, thorow the word of the LORD.

Psalms 53:1-6
1. To the chanter upon Mahalath, an instruction of David. The foolish bodies say in their hearts: Tush, there is no God. Corrupt are they, and become abominable in their wickednesses, there is not one that doth good.
2. God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that would understand, or seek after God.
3. But they are all gone out of the way, they are all become unprofitable: there is none that doth good, no not one.
4. How can they have understanding, that are the workers of wickedness, eating up my people as it were bread, and call not upon God.
5. They are afraid, where no fear is: for God breaketh the bones of them that besiege thee: thou puttest them to confusion, for God despiseth them.
6. Oh that the saving health were given unto Israel out of Sion: Oh that the Lord(God) would deliver his people out of captivity. Then should Jacob rejoice, and Israel should be right glad.

Proverbs 15:8-11
8. The LORD abhorreth the sacrifice of the ungodly, but the prayer of the righteous is acceptable to him.
9. The way of the ungodly is an abomination unto the LORD, but who so followeth righteousness, him he loveth.
10. He that forsaketh the right street, shall be sore punished: and who so hateth correction, falleth into death.
11. The hell with her pain is known to the LORD, how much more then the hearts of men?

Luke 20:27-47
27. Then came to him certain of the sadducees which deny that there is any resurrection. And they asked him
28. saying: Master Moses wrote unto us, if any man's brother die having a wife; And the same die without issue: that then his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
29. There were seven brethren, and the first took a wife, and died without children.
30. And the second took the wife, and he died childless.
31. And the third took her, and in like wise the residue of the seven; And left no children behind them, and died.
32. Last of all the woman died also.
33. Now at the resurrection whose wife of them shall she be? for seven had her to wife.
34. Jesus answered and said unto them: The children of this world marry wives, and are married,
35. but they which shall be (made) worthy of(to enjoy) that world, and the resurrection from death, neither marry wives,
36. neither are married, nor yet can die any more. For they are equal unto the angels: and are the sons of God, inasmuch as they are the children of the resurrection.
37. And that the dead shall rise again, even Moses signified besides the bush, when he said:(called) the Lord God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.
38. For he is not the God of the dead, but of them which live.(the living) For all live in him.(live all unto him)
39. (Then) Certain of the pharisees answered and said: Master, thou hast well said.
40. And after that durst they not ask him any question at all.
41. Then said he unto them: how say they that Christ is David's son?
42. And David him self saith in the book of the Psalms: The Lord said unto my Lord: Sit on my right hand,
43. till I make thine enemies thy foot stool.
44. (Seeing) David then calleth him Lord: How is he also (then) his son?
45. Then in the audience of all the people, he said unto his disciples,
46. beware of the scribes, which desire to go in long clothing: and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and chief rooms at feasts,
47. which devour widows' houses, and pray long under a colour:(that under a colour of long praying:) The same shall receive greater damnation.
