Hannah Exalts the Lord in Prayer
2:1 Hannah prayed, 1
“My heart rejoices in the Lord;
my horn 2 is exalted high because of the Lord.
I loudly denounce 3 my enemies,
for I am happy that you delivered me. 4
2:2 No one is holy 5 like the Lord!
There is no one other than you!
There is no rock 6 like our God!
22:11 But the Lord’s angel 1 called to him from heaven, “Abraham! Abraham!” “Here I am!” he answered. 22:12 “Do not harm the boy!” 2 the angel said. 3 “Do not do anything to him, for now I know 4 that you fear 5 God because you did not withhold your son, your only son, from me.”
22:13 Abraham looked up 6 and saw 7 behind him 8 a ram caught in the bushes by its horns. So he 9 went over and got the ram and offered it up as a burnt offering instead of his son. 22:14 And Abraham called the name of that place “The Lord provides.” 10 It is said to this day, 11 “In the mountain of the Lord provision will be made.” 12
22:15 The Lord’s angel called to Abraham a second time from heaven 22:16 and said, “‘I solemnly swear by my own name,’ 13 decrees the Lord, 14 ‘that because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son, 22:17 I will indeed bless you, 15 and I will greatly multiply 16 your descendants 17 so that they will be as countless as the stars in the sky or the grains of sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take possession 18 of the strongholds 19 of their enemies. 22:18 Because you have obeyed me, 20 all the nations of the earth will pronounce blessings on one another 21 using the name of your descendants.’”
22:19 Then Abraham returned to his servants, and they set out together 22 for Beer Sheba where Abraham stayed. 23
