Bible: 1 Sam 1:22-25

1:22 but Hannah did not go up with them. 1  Instead she told her husband, “Once the boy is weaned, I will bring him and appear before the Lord, and he will remain there from then on.”

1:23 So her husband Elkanah said to her, “Do what you think best. 2  Stay until you have weaned him. May the Lord fulfill his promise.” 3 

So the woman stayed and nursed her son until she had weaned him. 1:24 Once she had weaned him, she took him up with her, along with three bulls, an ephah 4  of flour, and a container 5  of wine. She brought him to the Lord’s house at Shiloh, even though he was young. 6  1:25 Once the bull had been slaughtered, they brought the boy to Eli.
