HANNAH (Heb. hannah, grace, favor). One of the two wives of Elkanah, a Levite who lived at Ramah (1 Sam 1:19). Although Hannah was his favored wife (1:5), she was barren. Hannah, a godly woman, prayed for a son and vowed to give him to the Lord as a perpetual Nazirite (1:11). Eli saw Hannah's lips moving in silent prayer and rebuked her for what he thought was drunkenness. She replied very humbly and Eli apologized. The family returned home; Hannah conceived and became the mother of Samuel, the great prophet of Israel and the last of the judges. Hannah's praise (2:1-10) shows that she was a deeply spiritual woman (cf. Ps 113:7-9; Luke 1:46-55).
