Also question is, what does peninnah mean?
Peninnah is a Biblical person, mentioned in 1 Samuel 1:2. She is one of the two wives of Elkanah (the other being Hannah, who is also called Chana). Peninnah means pearl. Its Hebrew root word perhaps is contr, meaning precious stone.
Similarly, what does the story of Hannah teach us? Hannah's story teaches us that asking for a miracle at God's hand is not always wrong. An example of a votive offering would be Hannah's desire to offer her child to the Lord in gratitude for granting her desire. 2) Abstinence Vow - a promise made to abstain from some lawful act or enjoyment.
Beside above, what did peninnah do to Hannah?
Biblical account Peninnah was less favored than Elkanah's other wife, Hannah; although she had borne him children whilst Hannah was childless, Peninnah also brought grief and disharmony to the household by her mocking of the infertile Hannah.
Where is the story of Hannah and peninnah?
The narrative about Hannah can be found in 1 Samuel 1:2-2:21. Outside of the first two chapters of 1 Samuel, she is never mentioned in the Bible. Elkanah had two wives; the name of the one was Hannah, and the name of the other Peninnah: and Peninnah had children, but Hannah had no children.
