Hannah’s Vow to the Lord.Year after year, Elkanah went up with his two wives and two sons to worship before the Lord at Shiloh. And year after year Phinehas would harass and taunt Hannah so much so that Hannah would weep continually and refused to eat. Then Elkanah would try to encourage his wife Hannah to eat and assured her of his love and asking her if he was not better to her than ten sons. So after they had eaten Hannah went up to the temple at Shiloh, where there sat Eli the priest. And Hannah was in bitterness of soul, and wept sorely. And Hannah made a vow to the Lord and said, “O Lord of Host, if thou wilt indeed look upon the affliction of thine handmaid and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid; but will give unto thine handmaid a a man child then I will give him unto the Lord all the days of his life; and there shall no razor come upon his head.
