Porque a vida é mágica.
1 Então orou Ana, e disse: O meu coração exulta ao SENHOR, o meu poder está exaltado no SENHOR; a minha boca se dilatou sobre os meus inimigos, porquanto me alegro na tua salvação.
2 Não há santo como o SENHOR; porque não há outro fora de ti; e rocha nenhuma há como o nosso Deus.
3 Não multipliqueis palavras de altivez, nem saiam coisas arrogantes da vossa boca; porque o SENHOR é o Deus de conhecimento, e por ele são as obras pesadas na balança.
4 O arco dos fortes foi quebrado, e os que tropeçavam foram cingidos de força.
5 Os fartos se alugaram por pão, e cessaram os famintos; até a estéril deu à luz sete filhos, e a que tinha muitos filhos enfraqueceu.
6 O SENHOR é o que tira a vida e a dá; faz descer à sepultura e faz tornar a subir dela.
7 O SENHOR empobrece e enriquece; abaixa e também exalta.
8 Levanta o pobre do pó, e desde o monturo exalta o necessitado, para o fazer assentar entre os príncipes, para o fazer herdar o trono de glória; porque do SENHOR são os alicerces da terra, e assentou sobre eles o mundo.
9 Os pés dos seus santos guardará, porém os ímpios ficarão mudos nas trevas; porque o homem não prevalecerá pela força.
10 Os que contendem com o SENHOR serão quebrantados, desde os céus trovejará sobre eles; o SENHOR julgará as extremidades da terra; e dará força ao seu rei, e exaltará o poder do seu ungido.
São cerca de sete horas da manhã,
diante da antiga tenda da congregação que,
como todos sabem,
fica em Siló desde tempos imemoriais,
uma mulher chora.
Um descendente da tribo de Efraim, uma das doze tribos que formava o povo israelita, peregrinava anualmente para oferecer holocaustos e sacrifícios ao grupo sacerdotal que dirigia a liturgia do tabernáculo que ficava em Silo.
Essa época de peregrinação era comum para milhares de pessoas que deixavam suas cidades em grandes concentrações, ou em excursões familiares individuais para agradecer a Deus as bênçãos cumuladas no ano que se realizou, assim como celebrar através de festas os feitos divinos e os milagres que até então haviam ocorrido, em especial com a geração que saíra do Egito por intermédio de Moisés.
o rei de toda a terra.
Que como Ana, só que de modo literal,
desceu à sepultura e dela retornou.
E em breve toda a humanidade o contemplará.
A descendant of the tribe of Ephraim, one of the twelve tribes that formed the Israeli people, pilgrimages every year to offer burnt offerings and sacrifices to the priestly group who ran the liturgy of the tabernacle was in Shiloh.
This time it was common pilgrimage for thousands of people who left their cities at high concentrations, or individual family excursions to thank God for the blessings in the year cumulated held, as well as celebrate festivals through the divine deeds and miracles that even then had occurred, particularly with the generation that came out of Egypt by Moses.
The name of the Ephraimite who came to celebrate at Shiloh was Elkanah. He had two wives, one who was called Anna and a new one that was called Penina. He had sons and daughters who had Penina generated because Hannah was barren. About four children. Each year a large family, from ancient times walked to Silo. In one of these celebrations and pilgrimages that Elkanah teenager fell in love with Anne when married couple, the two were together until Shiloh. The years passed and they continued climbing alone until Shiloh. For an Oriental birth of a child is a fact of tremendous celebration, being considered – a crowd of children – as a great blessing from God. The young Israeli dreamed of being a mother. The old woman was seen as cursed or unlucky if you do not have the ability to conceive. Many marriages fell apart if that happened. The property in Israel was hereditary possession of a family where there was a future generation to dispose it. At some point in your life Elkanah knew that there would be no chance that his wife got pregnant, and decides to marry a second wife to have children through her. His second wife was fertile and coming down every year to celebrate the feasts at Shiloh was more an heir to the family added. Possibly the first pilgrimage to Shiloh along with Penina, this was already pregnant. And then narrated in the book of Samuel the family already had seven people on pilgrimage to Shiloh Many of these pilgrimages were made with Penina pregnant. Meanwhile Ana remained sterile. Penina knew the great love he felt for Elkanah’s first wife, does not impose any charge or word of condemnation not filed for divorce, although it is socially despised. Despite accusations by family relatives. This deep love deeply irritated Penina, who longed to have all the attention directed exclusively to her. And deeply despised Ana Regardless of his condition, painful for a woman of her time, threw him on his face continually being a woman sterile. And every child born to him the more she hated Ana The climb to Silo was the crowning acts of humiliation imposed on Penina If Anna had not declared the node showed through ritual acts in front of the clergy by offering specific gratitude for their fertility. But the goal of Penina was not simply to celebrate Shiloh’s blessing of another child. It was to be exalted as a mother, was to make it clear that she and only she had received from God the ability to bear children. Was to contrast her womanhood victorious and continues with the sad condition of Ana and Ana knew that. Each year up until Shiloh was a period of psychological torture. There was a supper in particular in the food rations were distributed and one way of declaring one’s predilection for separating the noble parts of the lamb or calf after the sacrifice of praise to the person. Elkanah as master of ceremonies parted portions for all your sons and daughters and penina And ever and Anne separated the best parts for Hannah Peninnah outraged by that gesture threw in his face at that moment all the shame of their sterile condition . Always happened, so many years ago. The main point of the celebration was at Shiloh, and this supper this moment of communion with the family that for Ana had become the crowning moment of his despair. She stood up in tears and lost the hunger because of the accusation.
Her husband tried in vain to calm him or her comfort.
So the next morning get up early Ana willing to change the story of his life. Go to the entrance of the tabernacle of the congregation alone, after the end of the festivities and celebrations after past cults, passed after the rituals and sacrifices, without the presence of a priest, not musicians, without someone to watch it. And there she kneels and prays in a way that is not peculiar to his time. Men and women prayed in a group, or talking, declaring, raising his hands and gesturing. The prayers were audibly while held in public. Ana sometimes as if he were alone and locked in the room of your home. And there she makes a vow that only know later. She babbles words silently while tears abundantly down his eyes. The high priest went into the tent to do some activity and see Ana go quietly babbling. He looks at his lips moving without sound come out of them. This scene is so amazing to him, he imagines that she is drunk because of the many festivals and celebrations. Then he scolds her harshly, because after the holidays was a period of sobriety, meditation and not for drunkenness. But Anna is not drunk. She says that this gesture of intimacy with God is the fruit that is pouring his heart and soul. He knows why. So bless it and agree to his intercession. The word “amen” means “to be done.” At the end of a Jewish blessing was pronounced the amen. When Hannah gets up is no longer crying. Something had happened.
The song of Hannah shows the mysteries that inhabit your heart. In it we see the depth and boldness of his prayers and sentiments that propelled. She speaks of victory over enemies, and Penina course is that it is unsuccessful, because it will no longer be considered worthless, can no longer be defamed. Ana says that God is able to bring the soul from Sheol (the grave) or death, showing that this was how she felt, as if dead. She says the arrogant will be silent. Penina never could throw in his face his condition, because a miracle has changed their condition. She says that God gives victory to his anointed, and when so proclaimed is because she understands who she is, while they prophesy about the future of her son was born. Ana talks about the power being removed from the strong and the weak granted, tired of being the bread to the hungry and given that she was barren, now would be the mother of children. And again, many children. She sees the future. It speaks of a kingdom, a power that acted from the heavens. Ana feels like a princess, she was elated.
And at the end when he delivers his son Samuel to the service of the tabernacle, we do not understand why someone who prayed with much faith to have a child, now stripped of it, since the offer it to the sanctuary service this would be educated by priests and not by the family in Ephraim. Then he shows another part of the mystery of his prayer. She had a vote. She made a promise that the child born would be dedicated to serving the Lord.
Ana is a mother of five children. Samuel will grow and become one of the greatest prophets that the land can now contemplate. Was there a time in Israel that the word that Samuel would be regarded as a divine revelation. For indeed it was. He attained a degree of intimacy with God size, which for over 50 years ALL the prophecies and revelations that he gave on the issues that have been asked to intercede or seek divine guidance, fully occurred.
The song of Hannah is personal, but at the same time a declaration of God’s Spirit, that through the victory of Ana claims to the victory of Christ to all nations. The prophet Anna give birth to the prophet Samuel. And Samuel separate a shepherd to be king, David.
And this king, descend one day, a king,
King of all the earth.
That as Ana, only literally,
descended into the grave and returned it.
And soon all mankind behold him.
