As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.

It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; ...

I held him, and would not let him go until I had brought him into my mother's house, and into the chamber of her who conceived me.

Listen to me in silence, O coastlands; let the peoples renew their strength; let them approach, then let them speak; let us together draw near for judgment. Who stirred up one from the east whom victory meets at every step? He gives up nations before him, so that he tramples kings underfoot; he makes them like dust with his sword, like driven stubble with his bow. He pursues them and passes on safely, by paths his feet have not trod. Who has performed and done this, calling the generations from the beginning? I, the Lord, the first, and with the last; I am he. The coastlands have seen and are afraid; the ends of the earth tremble; they have drawn near and come. ...

I could strengthen you with my mouth, and the solace of my lips would assuage your pain. ...

The name of the one was Hannah, and the name of the other, Peninnah. And Peninnah had children, but Hannah had no children.
