07 小撒母耳  08 靈童撒母耳  

先知撒母耳幼年銜母命進聖殿,師從祭司以利供聖職。一晚童子在睡夢中,聽見有人叫喚他,遂起身就以利跟前。以利莫名其妙,答童子:「我未曾喚你,是夢,去睡。」卻童子仍幾番聞叫喚聲被驚醒。於是以利恍然而悟,與童子說:「我兒,若再聞叫喚,你當回覆:主啊,我在此,請吩咐,僕人敬聽。」自此,撒母耳為神代言。

As a young boy, Samuel’s mother brought him to the temple and presented him to high priest Eli as an offering of thanks to God. One night, Samuel heard someone calling his name which he promptly heeded. But Eli said to him, “I called not, my son; lie down again.” After the third time, Eli realized it was God that was calling Samuel and told him, “Go and lie down. If He calls you, say ‘Speak, Lord, for Your servant is listening.” After that, Samuel became a mouthpiece of the Lord.
