Chapter 3 - 1 Samuel

1 And the child Samuel ministered unto the LORD before Eli. And the word of the LORD was precious in those days; there was no open vision.1 At ang batang si Samuel ay nangangasiwa sa Panginoon sa harap ni Eli. At ang salita ng Panginoon ay mahalaga noong mga araw na yaon; walang hayag na pangitain.
2 And it came to pass at that time, when Eli was laid down in his place, and his eyes began to wax dim, that he could not see;2 At nangyari nang panahon na yaon, nang si Eli ay mahiga sa kaniyang dako, (ang kaniya ngang mata'y nagpasimulang lumabo, na siya'y hindi nakakita,)
3 And ere the lamp of God went out in the temple of the LORD, where the ark of God was, and Samuel was laid down to sleep;3 At ang ilawan ng Dios ay hindi pa namamatay, at si Samuel ay nakahiga upang matulog, sa templo ng Panginoon, na kinaroroonan ng kaban ng Dios;
4 That the LORD called Samuel: and he answered, Here am I.4 Na tinawag ng Panginoon si Samuel: at kaniyang sinabi, Narito ako.
5 And he ran unto Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou calledst me. And he said, I called not; lie down again. And he went and lay down.5 At siya'y tumakbo kay Eli, at nagsabi, Narito ako; sapagka't tinawag mo ako. At kaniyang sinabi, Hindi ako tumawag; mahiga ka uli. At siya'y yumaon at nahiga.
6 And the LORD called yet again, Samuel. And Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And he answered, I called not, my son; lie down again.6 At tumawag pa uli ang Panginoon, Samuel. At bumangon si Samuel at naparoon kay Eli, at nagsabi, Narito ako: sapagka't ako'y tinawag mo. At siya'y sumagot, Hindi ako tumawag, anak ko; mahiga ka uli.
7 Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, neither was the word of the LORD yet revealed unto him.7 Hindi pa nga nakikilala ni Samuel ang Panginoon, o ang salita man ng Panginoon ay nahahayag pa sa kaniya.
8 And the LORD called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And Eli perceived that the LORD had called the child.8 At tinawag uli ng Panginoon na ikaitlo. At siya'y bumangon, at naparoon kay Eli, at nagsabi, Narito ako; sapagka't ako'y iyong tinawag. At nahalata ni Eli na tinatawag ng Panginoon ang bata.
9 Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, Go, lie down: and it shall be, if he call thee, that thou shalt say, Speak, LORD; for thy servant heareth. So Samuel went and lay down in his place.9 Kaya't sinabi ni Eli kay Samuel, Yumaon ka, mahiga ka: at mangyayari, na kung tatawagin ka niya, ay iyong sasabihin, Magsalita ka, Panginoon; sapagka't dinirinig ng iyong lingkod. Sa gayo'y yumaon si Samuel at nahiga sa kaniyang dako.
10 And the LORD came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth.10 At ang Panginoon ay naparoon, at tumayo, at tumawag na gaya ng una, Samuel, Samuel. Nang magkagayo'y sinabi ni Samuel, Magsalita ka; sapagka't dinirinig ng iyong lingkod.
11 And the LORD said to Samuel, Behold, I will do a thing in Israel, at which both the ears of every one that heareth it shall tingle.11 At sinabi ng Panginoon kay Samuel, Narito, gagawa ako ng isang bagay sa Israel, na ang dalawang tainga ng bawa't isa na nakikinig ay magpapanting.
12 In that day I will perform against Eli all things which I have spoken concerning his house: when I begin, I will also make an end.12 Sa araw na yaon ay aking tutuparin kay Eli ang lahat na aking sinalita tungkol sa kaniyang sangbahayan, mula sa pasimula hanggang sa wakas.
13 For I have told him that I will judge his house for ever for the iniquity which he knoweth; because his sons made themselves vile, and he restrained them not.13 Sapagka't aking isinaysay sa kaniya na aking huhukuman ang kaniyang sangbahayan magpakailan man, dahil sa kasamaan na kaniyang nalalaman, sapagka't ang kaniyang mga anak ay nagdala ng sumpa sa kanilang sarili, at hindi niya sinangsala sila.
14 And therefore I have sworn unto the house of Eli, that the iniquity of Eli's house shall not be purged with sacrifice nor offering for ever.14 At kaya't ako'y sumumpa sa sangbahayan ni Eli, na ang kasamaan ng sangbahayan ni Eli ay hindi mapapawi ng hain, o handog man magpakailan man.
15 And Samuel lay until the morning, and opened the doors of the house of the LORD. And Samuel feared to shew Eli the vision.15 At nahiga si Samuel hanggang sa kinaumagahan, at ibinukas ang mga pinto ng bahay ng Panginoon. At natakot si Samuel na saysayin kay Eli ang panaginip.
16 Then Eli called Samuel, and said, Samuel, my son. And he answered, Here am I.16 Nang magkagayo'y tinawag ni Eli si Samuel, at nagsabi, Samuel, anak ko. At kaniyang sinabi, Narito ako.
17 And he said, What is the thing that the LORD hath said unto thee? I pray thee hide it not from me: God do so to thee, and more also, if thou hide any thing from me of all the things that he said unto thee.17 At kaniyang sinabi, Ano ang bagay na sinalita sa iyo? isinasamo ko sa iyo na huwag mong ilihim sa akin: hatulan ka ng Dios, at lalo na, kung iyong ililihim sa akin ang anomang bagay sa lahat ng mga bagay na kaniyang sinalita sa iyo.
18 And Samuel told him every whit, and hid nothing from him. And he said, It is the LORD: let him do what seemeth him good.18 At isinaysay sa kaniya ni Samuel ang buong sinalita, at hindi naglihim ng anoman sa kaniya. At kaniyang sinabi, Panginoon nga: gawin niya ang inaakala niyang mabuti.
19 And Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him, and did let none of his words fall to the ground.19 At si Samuel ay lumalaki at ang Panginoon ay sumasakaniya, at walang di pinapangyari sa kaniyang mga salita.
20 And all Israel from Dan even to Beersheba knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of the LORD.20 At nakilala ng buong Israel mula sa Dan hanggang sa Beer-seba na si Samuel ay itinatag na maging propeta ng Panginoon.
21 And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh: for the LORD revealed himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the LORD.21 At napakilala uli ang Panginoon sa Silo, sapagka't ang Panginoo'y napakilala kay Samuel sa Silo sa pamamagitan ng salita ng Panginoon.
