Hannah's Song - 1 Samuel 2

And Hannah prayed, saying...

 TranslationTransliteration
1. Triumphant my heart in Yahweh!
A high place my horn in Yahweh!
Wide is my mouth over my enemies,
for I delight in your deliverance.
‘âlats libîy baYHVH
râmâh qarnîy baYHWH
râchab pîy ‘al-’ôwbay
kîy sâmachtîy bîyshu‘âthekâ
2. None holy beside Yahweh!
For there is none except you,
and no Rock like our God!
’êyn-qâdôwsh baYHWH
kîy ’êyn biltekâ
we’êyn tsûr kê’lôhêynû
3. Stop making much of your speech of pride, pride
goes out loose from your mouth,
for El of knowledge is Yahweh
and it is he who reckons every deed.
’al-tarebû tedabberû gebohah gebohah
yêtsê’ ‘âthâq miphiykem
kîy ’el dê‘ôwth YHWH
welô’ nathkenû ‘alilôwth
4. The bow of the valiant is shattered,
but the feeble are prepared to be strong.
qesheth gibborîym chattîym
wenikshâlîym ’âzerû châyîyl
5. Those who have feasted, in bread will be paid,
while those who have hungered - no longer!
She who was barren has now borne seven,
while the mother of many dwindles.
sebê‘îym ballechem niskârû
ûre‘êbîym chadellû
‘ad-‘aqârâh yâledâh shibe‘âh
werabbath bânîym ’ûmelâlâh
6. Yahweh brings about death and life,
casts to She’ol and lifts up.
YHVH mêmîyth ûmechayyeh
môwrîyd she’ôl wayyâ‘al
7. Yahweh brings about poverty and wealth,
brings low and makes high.
YHVH môwrîysh wema‘ashîyr
mashpîyl ’aph-merôwmêm
8. He raises up the weak from the dust,
and from the ash-heap lifts the poor
to seat them with nobles
and a throne of glory grant.
To Yahweh belong the foundations of the earth,
and on them he orders the world of men.
mêqîym mê‘âphâr dâl
mê’ashpôth yârîym ’ebyôwn
lehôwshîyb ‘im-nedîybîym
wekiççê’ kâbôwd yanechilêm
kîy laYHVH metsuqêy ’erets
wayyâsheth ‘alêyhem têbêl
9. The footsteps of his devoted he watches,
but the wicked in darkness are silenced -
for not by power grows mighty a man.
ragelêy châçîydâw yishmôr
ûresha‘îym bachoshek yiddâmmû
kîy-lô bekoach yigebar-îysh
10. Yahweh shatters his contenders -
against them from the heavens he thunders!
Yahweh will judge the ends of the earth
giving might to his king,
lifting high the horn of his anointed.
YHVH yêchattû merîybâw
‘âlâw bashshamayim yare‘êm
YHVH yâdîyn ’apheçêy-’ârets
weyitten-‘ôz lemalkôw
weyârêm qeren meshîychû
