Hannah desperately wanted to be a mother. She went to the temple, and prayed for God to let her have a child, and promises that she will give the child to the service of the Shiloh priests and raise him as a nazir. Eli the High Priest was sitting nearby and believes her to be drunk. He began questioning her, and she explained what she was praying for, and he tells her that her prayer will be answered. That very night, she became pregnant, and she kept her word and raised him as a nazarite in the service of the priests. Because the child is such a good worker, Eli blessed her again, and she had several more children.
