SA1 1:8 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

SA1 1:9 So Hannah rose up after they had eaten in Shiloh, and after

temple of the LORD.
SA1 1:10 And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the LORD,
and wept sore.
SA1 1:11 And she vowed a vow, and said, O LORD of hosts, if thou wilt

not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man
