3ΒΑΣΙΛΕΙΩΝ ΑBrenton(Lxx)1 KINGDOMS Revised Standard VersionLIBER SAMUHELIS I 3

1Καὶ τὸ παιδάριον Σαμουηλ ἦν λειτουργῶν τῷ κυρίῳ ἐνώπιον Ηλι τοῦ ἱερέως· καὶ ῥῆμα κυρίου ἦν τίμιον ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις ἐκείναις, οὐκ ἦν ὅρασις διαστέλλουσα. And the child Samuel ministered to the Lord before Heli the priest: and the word of the Lord was precious in those days, there was no distinct vision.The call of Samuel. 1Sm.3.1-4.1Now the boy Samuel was ministering to the LORD under Eli. And the word of the LORD was rare in those days; there was no frequent vision.וְהַנַּעַר שְׁמוּאֵל מְשָׁרֵת אֶת־יְהוָה לִפְנֵי עֵלִי וּדְבַר־יְהוָה הָיָה יָקָר בַּיָּמִים הָהֵם אֵין חָזֹון נִפְרָץ׃ ס 1
2καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ καὶ Ηλι ἐκάθευδεν ἐν τῷ τόπῳ αὐτοῦ, καὶ οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ αὐτοῦ ἤρξαντο βαρύνεσθαι, καὶ οὐκ ἠδύνατο βλέπειν, And it came to pass at that time that Heli was sleeping in his place; and his eyes began to fail, and could not see. At that time Eli, whose eyesight had begun to grow dim, so that he could not see, was lying down in his own place;וַיְהִי בַּיֹּום הַהוּא וְעֵלִי שֹׁכֵב בִּמְקֹמֹו {כ= וְעֵינֹו} {ק= וְעֵינָיו} הֵחֵלּוּ כֵהֹות לֹא יוּכַל לִרְאֹות׃ 2
3καὶ ὁ λύχνος τοῦ θεοῦ πρὶν ἐπισκευασθῆναι, καὶ Σαμουηλ ἐκάθευδεν ἐν τῷ ναῷ, οὗ ἡ κιβωτὸς τοῦ θεοῦ, And the lamp of God [was burning] before it was trimmed, and Samuel slept in the temple, where [was] the ark of God. the lamp of God had not yet gone out, and Samuel was lying down within the temple of the LORD, where the ark of God was.וְנֵר אֱלֹהִים טֶרֶם יִכְבֶּה וּשְׁמוּאֵל שֹׁכֵב בְּהֵיכַל יְהוָה אֲשֶׁר־שָׁם אֲרֹון אֱלֹהִים׃ ף 3
4καὶ ἐκάλεσεν κύριος Σαμουηλ Σαμουηλ· καὶ εἶπεν Ἰδοὺ ἐγώ. And the Lord called, Samuel, Samuel; and he said, Behold, [here am] I. Then the LORD called, "Samuel! Samuel!" and he said, "Here I am!"וַיִּקְרָא יְהוָה אֶל־שְׁמוּאֵל וַיֹּאמֶר הִנֵּנִי׃ 4
5καὶ ἔδραμεν πρὸς Ηλι καὶ εἶπεν Ἰδοὺ ἐγώ, ὅτι κέκληκάς με· καὶ εἶπεν Οὐ κέκληκά σε, ἀνάστρεφε κάθευδε. καὶ ἀνέστρεψεν καὶ ἐκάθευδεν. And he ran to Heli, and said, [Here am] I, for you called me: and he said, I did not call you; return, go to sleep; and he returned and went to sleep. and ran to Eli, and said, "Here I am, for you called me." But he said, "I did not call; lie down again." So he went and lay down.וַיָּרָץ אֶל־עֵלִי וַיֹּאמֶר הִנְנִי כִּי־קָרָאתָ לִּי וַיֹּאמֶר לֹא־קָרָאתִי שׁוּב שְׁכָב וַיֵּלֶךְ וַיִּשְׁכָּב׃ ס 5
6καὶ προσέθετο κύριος καὶ ἐκάλεσεν Σαμουηλ Σαμουηλ· καὶ ἐπορεύθη πρὸς Ηλι τὸ δεύτερον καὶ εἶπεν Ἰδοὺ ἐγώ, ὅτι κέκληκάς με· καὶ εἶπεν Οὐ κέκληκά σε, ἀνάστρεφε κάθευδε· And the Lord called again, Samuel, Samuel: and he went to Heli the second time, and said, Behold [here am] I, for you did call me: and he said, I did not call you; return, go to sleep. And the LORD called again, "Samuel!" And Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said, "Here I am, for you called me." But he said, "I did not call, my son; lie down again."וַיֹּסֶף יְהוָה קְרֹא עֹוד שְׁמוּאֵל וַיָּקָם שְׁמוּאֵל וַיֵּלֶךְ אֶל־עֵלִי וַיֹּאמֶר הִנְנִי כִּי קָרָאתָ לִי וַיֹּאמֶר לֹא־קָרָאתִי בְנִי שׁוּב שְׁכָב׃ 6
7καὶ Σαμουηλ πρὶν ἢ γνῶναι θεὸν καὶ ἀποκαλυφθῆναι αὐτῷ ῥῆμα κυρίου. And [it was] before Samuel knew the Lord, and [before] the word of the Lord was revealed to him. Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, and the word of the LORD had not yet been revealed to him.וּשְׁמוּאֵל טֶרֶם יָדַע אֶת־יְהוָה וְטֶרֶם יִגָּלֶה אֵלָיו דְּבַר־יְהוָה׃ 7
8καὶ προσέθετο κύριος καλέσαι Σαμουηλ ἐν τρίτῳ· καὶ ἀνέστη καὶ ἐπορεύθη πρὸς Ηλι καὶ εἶπεν Ἰδοὺ ἐγώ, ὅτι κέκληκάς με. καὶ ἐσοφίσατο Ηλι ὅτι κύριος κέκληκεν τὸ παιδάριον, And the Lord called Samuel again for the third time: and he arose and went to Heli, and said, Behold, I [am here], for you did call me: and Heli perceived that the Lord [had] called the child. And the LORD called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli, and said, "Here I am, for you called me." Then Eli perceived that the LORD was calling the boy.וַיֹּסֶף יְהוָה קְרֹא־שְׁמוּאֵל בַּשְּׁלִשִׁית וַיָּקָם וַיֵּלֶךְ אֶל־עֵלִי וַיֹּאמֶר הִנְנִי כִּי קָרָאתָ לִי וַיָּבֶן עֵלִי כִּי יְהוָה קֹרֵא לַנָּעַר׃ 8
9καὶ εἶπεν Ἀνάστρεφε κάθευδε, τέκνον, καὶ ἔσται ἐὰν καλέσῃ σε, καὶ ἐρεῖς Λάλει, κύριε, ὅτι ἀκούει ὁ δοῦλός σου. καὶ ἐπορεύθη Σαμουηλ καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ἐν τῷ τόπῳ αὐτοῦ. And he said, Return, child, go to sleep; and it shall come to pass if he shall call you, that you shall say, Speak for your servant hears: and Samuel went and lay down in his place. Therefore Eli said to Samuel, "Go, lie down; and if he calls you, you shall say, 'Speak, LORD, for thy servant hears.'" So Samuel went and lay down in his place.וַיֹּאמֶר עֵלִי לִשְׁמוּאֵל לֵךְ שְׁכָב וְהָיָה אִם־יִקְרָא אֵלֶיךָ וְאָמַרְתָּ דַּבֵּר יְהוָה כִּי שֹׁמֵעַ עַבְדֶּךָ וַיֵּלֶךְ שְׁמוּאֵל וַיִּשְׁכַּב בִּמְקֹומֹו׃ 9
10καὶ ἦλθεν κύριος καὶ κατέστη καὶ ἐκάλεσεν αὐτὸν ὡς ἅπαξ καὶ ἅπαξ, καὶ εἶπεν Σαμουηλ Λάλει, ὅτι ἀκούει ὁ δοῦλός σου. And the Lord came, and stood, and called him as before: and Samuel said, Speak, for your servant hears. And the LORD came and stood forth, calling as at other times, "Samuel! Samuel!" And Samuel said, "Speak, for thy servant hears."וַיָּבֹא יְהוָה וַיִּתְיַצַּב וַיִּקְרָא כְפַעַם־בְּפַעַם שְׁמוּאֵל שְׁמוּאֵל וַיֹּאמֶר שְׁמוּאֵל דַּבֵּר כִּי שֹׁמֵעַ עַבְדֶּךָ׃ ף 10
11καὶ εἶπεν κύριος πρὸς Σαμουηλ Ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ποιῶ τὰ ῥήματά μου ἐν Ισραηλ ὥστε παντὸς ἀκούοντος αὐτὰ ἠχήσει ἀμφότερα τὰ ὦτα αὐτοῦ. And the Lord said to Samuel, Behold, I execute my words in Israel; whoever hears them, both his ears shall tingle. Then the LORD said to Samuel, "Behold, I am about to do a thing in Israel, at which the two ears of everyone that hears it will tingle.וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה אֶל־שְׁמוּאֵל הִנֵּה אָנֹכִי עֹשֶׂה דָבָר בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל אֲשֶׁר כָּל־שֹׁמְעֹו תְּצִלֶּינָה שְׁתֵּי אָזְנָיו׃ 11
12ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ἐπεγερῶ ἐπὶ Ηλι πάντα, ὅσα ἐλάλησα εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ, ἄρξομαι καὶ ἐπιτελέσω. In that day I will raise up against Heli all things that I have said against his house; I will begin, and I will make an end. On that day I will fulfil against Eli all that I have spoken concerning his house, from beginning to end.בַּיֹּום הַהוּא אָקִים אֶל־עֵלִי אֵת כָּל־אֲשֶׁר דִּבַּרְתִּי אֶל־בֵּיתֹו הָחֵל וְכַלֵּה׃ 12
13καὶ ἀνήγγελκα αὐτῷ ὅτι ἐκδικῶ ἐγὼ τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ ἕως αἰῶνος ἐν ἀδικίαις υἱῶν αὐτοῦ, ὅτι κακολογοῦντες θεὸν υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ, καὶ οὐκ ἐνουθέτει αὐτοὺς καὶ οὐδ' οὕτως. And I have told him that I will be avenged on his house perpetually for the iniquities of his sons, because his sons spoke evil against God, and he did not admonish them. And I tell him that I am about to punish his house for ever, for the iniquity which he knew, because his sons were blaspheming God, and he did not restrain them.וְהִגַּדְתִּי לֹו כִּי־שֹׁפֵט אֲנִי אֶת־בֵּיתֹו עַד־עֹולָם בַּעֲוֹן אֲשֶׁר־יָדַע כִּי־מְקַלְלִים לָהֶם בָּנָיו וְלֹא כִהָה בָּם׃ 13
14ὤμοσα τῷ οἴκῳ Ηλι Εἰ ἐξιλασθήσεται ἀδικία οἴκου Ηλι ἐν θυμιάματι καὶ ἐν θυσίαις ἕως αἰῶνος. And [it shall] not [go on] so; I have sworn to the house of Eli, the iniquity of the house of Eli shall not be atoned for with incense or sacrifices for ever. Therefore I swear to the house of Eli that the iniquity of Eli's house shall not be expiated by sacrifice or offering for ever."וְלָכֵן נִשְׁבַּעְתִּי לְבֵית עֵלִי אִם־יִתְכַּפֵּר עֲוֹן בֵּית־עֵלִי בְּזֶבַח וּבְמִנְחָה עַד־עֹולָם׃ 14
15καὶ κοιμᾶται Σαμουηλ ἕως πρωῒ καὶ ὤρθρισεν τὸ πρωῒ καὶ ἤνοιξεν τὰς θύρας οἴκου κυρίου· καὶ Σαμουηλ ἐφοβήθη ἀπαγγεῖλαι τὴν ὅρασιν τῷ Ηλι. And Samuel slept till morning, and rose early in the morning, and opened the doors of the house of the Lord; and Samuel feared to tell [Heli] the vision. Samuel lay until morning; then he opened the doors of the house of the LORD. And Samuel was afraid to tell the vision to Eli.וַיִּשְׁכַּב שְׁמוּאֵל עַד־הַבֹּקֶר וַיִּפְתַּח אֶת־דַּלְתֹות בֵּית־יְהוָה וּשְׁמוּאֵל יָרֵא מֵהַגִּיד אֶת־הַמַּרְאָה אֶל־עֵלִי׃ 15
16καὶ εἶπεν Ηλι πρὸς Σαμουηλ Σαμουηλ τέκνον· καὶ εἶπεν Ἰδοὺ ἐγώ. And Heli said to Samuel, Samuel, [my] son; and he said, Behold, [here am] I. But Eli called Samuel and said, "Samuel, my son." And he said, "Here I am."וַיִּקְרָא עֵלִי אֶת־שְׁמוּאֵל וַיֹּאמֶר שְׁמוּאֵל בְּנִי וַיֹּאמֶר הִנֵּנִי׃ 16
17καὶ εἶπεν Τί τὸ ῥῆμα τὸ λαληθὲν πρὸς σέ; μὴ δὴ κρύψῃς ἀπ' ἐμοῦ· τάδε ποιήσαι σοι ὁ θεὸς καὶ τάδε προσθείη, ἐὰν κρύψῃς ἀπ' ἐμοῦ ῥῆμα ἐκ πάντων τῶν λόγων τῶν λαληθέντων σοι ἐν τοῖς ὠσίν σου. And he said, What [was] the word that was spoken to you? I pray you hide it not from me: may God do these things to you, and more also, if you hide from me any thing of all the words that were spoken to you in your ears. And Eli said, "What was it that he told you? Do not hide it from me. May God do so to you and more also, if you hide anything from me of all that he told you."וַיֹּאמֶר מָה הַדָּבָר אֲשֶׁר דִּבֶּר אֵלֶיךָ אַל־נָא תְכַחֵד מִמֶּנִּי כֹּה יַעֲשֶׂה־לְּךָ אֱלֹהִים וְכֹה יֹוסִיף אִם־תְּכַחֵד מִמֶּנִּי דָּבָר מִכָּל־הַדָּבָר אֲשֶׁר־דִּבֶּר אֵלֶיךָ׃ 17
18καὶ ἀπήγγειλεν Σαμουηλ πάντας τοὺς λόγους καὶ οὐκ ἔκρυψεν ἀπ' αὐτοῦ, καὶ εἶπεν Ηλι Κύριος αὐτός· τὸ ἀγαθὸν ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ ποιήσει. And Samuel reported all the words, and hid them not from him. And Heli said, He [is] the Lord, he shall do that which is good in his sight. So Samuel told him everything and hid nothing from him. And he said, "It is the LORD; let him do what seems good to him."וַיַּגֶּד־לֹו שְׁמוּאֵל אֶת־כָּל־הַדְּבָרִים וְלֹא כִחֵד מִמֶּנּוּ וַיֹּאמַר יְהוָה הוּא הַטֹּוב בְּעֵינָו יַעֲשֶׂה׃ ף 18
19Καὶ ἐμεγαλύνθη Σαμουηλ, καὶ ἦν κύριος μετ' αὐτοῦ, καὶ οὐκ ἔπεσεν ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν λόγων αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν. And Samuel grew, and the Lord was with him, and there did not fall one of his words to the ground. And Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him and let none of his words fall to the ground.וַיִּגְדַּל שְׁמוּאֵל וַיהוָה הָיָה עִמֹּו וְלֹא־הִפִּיל מִכָּל־דְּבָרָיו אָרְצָה׃ 19
20καὶ ἔγνωσαν πᾶς Ισραηλ ἀπὸ Δαν καὶ ἕως Βηρσαβεε ὅτι πιστὸς Σαμουηλ εἰς προφήτην τῷ κυρίῳ. And all Israel knew from Dan even to Bersabee, that Samuel [was] faithful as a prophet to the Lord. And all Israel from Dan to Beer-sheba knew that Samuel was established as a prophet of the LORD.וַיֵּדַע כָּל־יִשְׂרָאֵל מִדָּן וְעַד־בְּאֵר שָׁבַע כִּי נֶאֱמָן שְׁמוּאֵל לְנָבִיא לַיהוָה׃ 20
21καὶ προσέθετο κύριος δηλωθῆναι ἐν Σηλωμ, ὅτι ἀπεκαλύφθη κύριος πρὸς Σαμουηλ· καὶ ἐπιστεύθη Σαμουηλ προφήτης γενέσθαι τῷ κυρίῳ εἰς πάντα Ισραηλ ἀπ' ἄκρων τῆς γῆς καὶ ἕως ἄκρων. καὶ Ηλι πρεσβύτης σφόδρα, καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ πορευόμενοι ἐπορεύοντο καὶ πονηρὰ ἡ ὁδὸς αὐτῶν ἐνώπιον κυρίου. And the Lord manifested himself again in Selom, for the Lord revealed himself to Samuel; and Samuel was accredited to all Israel as a prophet to the Lord from one end of the land to the other: and Heli [was] very old, and his sons kept advancing [in wickedness], and their way [was] evil before the Lord. And the LORD appeared again at Shiloh, for the LORD revealed himself to Samuel at Shiloh by the word of the Lord.וַיֹּסֶף יְהוָה לְהֵרָאֹה בְשִׁלֹה כִּי־נִגְלָה יְהוָה אֶל־שְׁמוּאֵל בְּשִׁלֹו בִּדְבַר יְהוָה׃ ף 21

Notes: Format: For the canonical books the parallel passages on this page are seven columns width, reducing to four columns for the Apocrypha - Deuterocanonical books.
Printing: For the most readable option, set your printer to a Landscape setting before printing the page.
The Old Testament in Greek is Rahlf's LXX available in Word format at the Tyndale website, adapted to database format.
The alternative readings of the LXX - Judges (Alexandrinus), Daniel, Susanna & Bel (LXX received text), and Tobit (Sinaiticus [not printed in Swete]) as separate book references so that they can be viewed as an alternative text in parallel with the primary text.
(I have reversed the Swete presentation for Daniel, Susanna, Bel by listing in the later Theodotion LXX text as the main text.)
The LXX cross references to the Hebrew Bible have been extensively revised using those set out in Swete's 'Old Testament in Greek' publications between 1894 and 1909, amended in part to agree with verses as printed in the Biblia Hebraica (1937 publication).
I made constant use of my own copies of Swete's Lxx in preparation of the Greek text. Swete's Lxx can be viewed HERE, HERE, and HERE. Some verse cross references in Swete's had to be amended to agree with the BHS verse numbering, and there may well be some mismatches that I haven't yet picked up on. (If you find any errors please e-mail me.)
Hebrew Bible has been adapted from the BHS in Word format at Tyndale.
The Septuagint in English (translated by Sir Lancelot CL Brenton) - is used here only for the books of the Hebrew Bible.
The Revised Standard Version: This generally follows the Hebrew Bible for the canonical OT,
but use this as the English Text for the remainder of the LXX (Apocrypha - deuterocanonical books).
