Ini nde munthukazi wakusuzgika maŵanaŵanu;* ndamwa vinyu cha pamwenga moŵa wewosi, kweni ndikambiya* Yehova vo ve mumtima mwangu.+ 16  Mteŵeti winu mungamuwonanga nge munthukazi wawuliwuli cha, pakuti mpaka sonu ndeche kulongoro chifukwa chakufipa mtima kweniso kusuzgika maŵanaŵanu.” 17  Sonu Eli wangumuka kuti: “Luta mu chimangu, ndipu Chiuta waku Isirayeli wakupaski vo wamupempha.”+ 18  Hana wangumuka kuti: “Mteŵeti winu wasaniyi wezi pa masu pinu.” Sonu Hana wanguluta, wangurya ndipu chisku chaki chingujapu so chachitima cha. 19  Sonu yiwu angusoka ndi mlenjilenji ndipu angujikama pa masu paku Yehova, pavuli paki anguwere kunyumba kwawu ku Rama.+ Elikana wangugonana ndi muwolu waki Hana ndipu Yehova wangumukumbuka Hana.+ 20  Mu chaka chenicho,* Hana wangume nthumbu ndipu wangubala mwana munthulumi. Iyu wangumudana+ zina lakuti Samuyeli,* chifukwa wangukamba kuti, “ndingumupempha kwaku Yehova.” 21  Pati pajumpha nyengu, Elikana wanguluta limoza ndi banja laki losi kuti wakapereki sembi ya chaka ndi chaka kwaku Yehova,+ kweniso kuti wakapereki sembi yaki yakulapizga. 22  Kweni Hana wanguja,+ pakuti wangukambiya mulumu waki kuti: “Asani ndamulumula ŵaka* mwana uyu, ndikengi nayu; pa nyengu yeniyi wamuwoneke pa masu paku Yehova ndipu wamujanga kweniko kutuliya pa nyengu yeniyo.”+ 23  Mulumu waki Elikana wangumukambiya kuti: “Chita vo uŵanaŵana kuti vamampha.* Uje panyumba mpaka po wamulumuliya. Yehova wachiti vo yiwi wakamba.” Mwaviyo, Hana wanguja panyumba ndipu wawonkhesanga mwana waki mpaka po wangumulumuliya. 24  Wati wamulumula ŵaka, wangumuto ndi kuluta nayu ku Shilo limoza ndi ng’ombi yinthulumi ya vyaka vitatu, ufwa wakukwana mwesu umoza wa efa* kweniso msuku ukulu wa vinyu,+ ndipu wanguza ndi mwana waki munthulumi kunyumba yaku Yehova ku Shilo.+ 25  Yiwu angubaya ng’ombi yo ndipu mwana yo anguza nayu kwaku Eli. 26  Sonu Hana wangukamba kuti: “Pepani ambuya! Nadi panu nge mo yimwi muliri amoyu ambuya, ini nde munthukazi yuwa wanguma limoza ndi yimwi pamalu yanga ndi kupemphera kwaku Yehova.+ 27  Ndapempheranga kuti wandipaski mwana uyu, ndipu Yehova wandipaska vo ndingumupempha.+ 28  Sonu nani nditimupereka* kwaku Yehova. Ndamupereka kwaku Yehova kwa umoyu waki wosi.” Ndipu iyu* wangujikama penipo kwaku Yehova.
