The King James Version Bible

1 Samuel 1:4-8

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

  2. 5 But unto Hannah he gave a worthy portion; for he loved Hannah: but the LORD had shut up her womb.

  3. 6 And her adversary also provoked her sore, for to make her fret, because the LORD had shut up her womb.

  4. 7 And 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.

  5. 8 Then said Elkanah her husband to her, Hannah, why weepest thou? and why eatest thou not? and why is thy heart grieved? am not I better to thee than ten sons?
