2  One night Eli, whose eyes were becoming so weak that he could barely see, was lying down in his usual place. 3  The lamp of God had not yet gone out, and Samuel was lying down in the house of the Lord , where the ark of God was. 4  Then the Lord called Samuel.

Then Eli realized that the Lord was calling the boy. 9  So Eli told Samuel, “Go and lie down, and if he calls you, say, ‘Speak, Lord , for your servant is listening.’” So Samuel went and lay down in his place.

11  And the Lord said to Samuel: “See, I am about to do something in Israel that will make the ears of everyone who hears about it tingle. 12  At that time I will carry out against Eli everything I spoke against his family—from beginning to end. 13  For I told him that I would judge his family forever because of the sin he knew about; his sons blasphemed God, [ a ] and he failed to restrain them. 14  Therefore I swore to the house of Eli, ‘The guilt of Eli’s house will never be atoned for by sacrifice or offering.’”

Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.

Then flew one of the seraphim’s unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:

And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.
