009:003:001
And the child Samuel ministered unto the LORD before Eli.
And the word of the LORD was precious in those days;
there was no open vision.


009:003:002
And it came to pass at that time,
when Eli was laid down in his place,
and his eyes began to wax dim,
that he could not see;


009:003:003
And ere the lamp of God went out in the temple of the LORD,
where the ark of God was,
and Samuel was laid down to sleep;


009:003:004
That the LORD called Samuel:
and he answered,
Here am I.


009:003:005
And he ran unto Eli,
and said,
Here am I;
for thou calledst me.
And he said,
I called not;
lie down again.
And he went and lay down.


009:003:006
And the LORD called yet again,
Samuel.
And Samuel arose and went to Eli,
and said,
Here am I;
for thou didst call me.
And he answered,
I called not,
my son;
lie down again.


009:003:007
Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD,
neither was the word of the LORD yet revealed unto him.


009:003:008
And the LORD called Samuel again the third time.
And he arose and went to Eli,
and said,
Here am I;
for thou didst call me.
And Eli perceived that the LORD had called the child.


009:003:009
Therefore Eli said unto Samuel,
Go,
lie down:
and it shall be,
if he call thee,
that thou shalt say,
Speak,
LORD;
for thy servant heareth.
So Samuel went and lay down in his place.


009:003:010
And the LORD came,
and stood,
and called as at other times,
Samuel,
Samuel.
Then Samuel answered,
Speak;
for thy servant heareth.


009:003:011
And the LORD said to Samuel,
Behold,
I will do a thing in Israel,
at which both the ears of every one that heareth it shall tingle.


009:003:012
In that day I will perform against Eli all things which I have spoken concerning his house:
when I begin,
I will also make an end.


009:003:013
For I have told him that I will judge his house for ever for the iniquity which he knoweth;
because his sons made themselves vile,
and he restrained them not.


009:003:014
And therefore I have sworn unto the house of Eli,
that the iniquity of Eli's house shall not be purged with sacrifice nor offering for ever.


009:003:015
And Samuel lay until the morning,
and opened the doors of the house of the LORD.
And Samuel feared to shew Eli the vision.


009:003:016
Then Eli called Samuel,
and said,
Samuel,
my son.
And he answered,
Here am I.


009:003:017
And he said,
What is the thing that the LORD hath said unto thee?
I pray thee hide it not from me:
God do so to thee,
and more also,
if thou hide any thing from me of all the things that he said unto thee.


009:003:018
And Samuel told him every whit,
and hid nothing from him.
And he said,
It is the LORD:
let him do what seemeth him good.


009:003:019
And Samuel grew,
and the LORD was with him,
and did let none of his words fall to the ground.


009:003:020
And all Israel from Dan even to Beersheba knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of the LORD.


009:003:021
And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh:
for the LORD revealed himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the LORD.
