09 Samuel I - Commentary on the First Book of Samuel
The two books of Samuel: I and 2, in the Hebrew origin, are one book that carries the name “Samuel”; not only on account of that the prophet ‘Samuel’ plays the main role in the first part of that book, but also because he was the first to anoint kings for Israel: ‘Saul’ and ‘David’; and because he was the first to introduce such kind of prophetically historical record, through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit; as well as other main roles that came in the two books. The word ‘Samuel’ does not mean, as some people think, (asked for from the Lord), based on the phrase: “and called his name ‘Samuel’, saying, ’because I have asked for him from the Lord’ “ (I Samuel 1: 20); but it means, (The Lord listened); If ‘Hannah’ said “I have asked for him from the Lord”, she actually meant that (the Lord listened to her quest). The phrase “I have asked for him from the Lord” is probably nearer to the name ‘Saul’ than it is to that of ‘Samuel’. Still some believe that the word ‘Samuel’ means (the name of God) or (His name is God).
