In the hill country of Ephraim there lived a man called Elkanah. He had two wives called Hannah and Peninnah. Peninnah had children but Hannah was childless. Elkanah went regularly on pilgrimage with his whole family to the temple at Shiloh. In the temple everybody offered some food as a sacrifice to the Lord. Elkanah used to give a single portion to his wife Peninnah and to all her children, and a double portion to Hannah because he loved her very much, and she was childless. Peninnah was jealous of Hannah, and she reproached her constantly that the Lord had left her without children. This went on year after year. Each time they made their pilgrimage to the Lord, Peninnah would accuse her, and Hannah would weep and refuse to eat. Elkanah used to ask her, “Hannah, why do you weep and refuse to eat? Am I not more to you than ten sons?”
