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.
Eli perceived that the Lord had called the child. Figure 4. Harry Anderson: Speak; for thy servant heareth. And the Lord came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth. And the Lord came, and stood. Samuel, Samuel. Speak; for thy servant heareth. Of course, the simple explanation for this deviation is that these were with one slight exception  the same words that Eli had instructed Samuel to say.
Young Shemuel appears in this chapter as one through whom God speaks, and is thus a prophet, but there is none of the usual tension between the one called and the burden he is asked to carry — at least for the moment — that we find elsewhere in the Bible. Figure 5. Hanna [Hannah] makes a telling contrast to the High Priest, Eli, continuing a pattern that recurs throughout Judges and Samuel, where women provide a [contrast] and a profound sounding board for issues of power.
The priest-judge Eli, an ineffective leader, typifies an era that is coming to a close.
Unlike his young charge Shemuel, he is never in direct verbal contact with God; in addition, he is incapable of providing the military leadership of his predecessors, and, most tellingly, unable to control the highly inappropriate behavior of his sons. The fall of the house of Eli gives way to the leadership of his judge-prophet successor, Shemuel.

President Spencer W. They feel they know so much that God cannot teach them. Once I was assigned to visit an elderly couple who had served in many positions of prominence in the Church. The picture of them seated together on the couch in their modest home is still vivid in my mind. I had been asked to extend a call to the sister to be the accompanist for the ward choir.
The faithful sister could have objected that they had already put in their time and that now, in their later years, had a right to retire from church service, but she accepted the calling graciously. Over the course of their lives they had become the kind of great souls they were by accepting callings of all kinds, from the kinds of callings that require great sacrifice of time and means, to those that are so much less visible and so seemingly mundane that some might think them unworthy of their talents. Over the years, my admiration has continued to grow for faithful members such as this couple that Elder Boyd K.
I love the way this is expressed in a poem by Meade MacGuire: . Father, where shall I work today? Why, no one would ever see, No matter how well my work was done. Not that little place for me. Nazareth was a little place, And so was Galilee. My love and gratitude to my wife Kathleen for her suggestions on this article and for her unwearied willingness to serve wherever she is called. Figure 6. The city was later rebuilt, then abandoned again after the Assyrian conquest in BCE.
Off and on occupation continued for many centuries afterward. Israel Finkelstein has proposed that the Tabernacle was housed on the summit of the tel. Figure 7. Some traditions see the location of the Tabernacle as being on the slopes north of Tel Shiloh. Cultic usage of the site persisted over many centuries. Figure 8.
