[Hannah] overlooks the gift and praises the giver, whereas most forget the giver and fasten only on the gift. Every stream should lead us to the fountain, and the favors we receive from God should raise our admiration of the infinite perfections there are in God. There may be other Samuels, but no other Jehovah. . .God is to be praised as a peerless being, and of unparalleled perfection. – Matthew Henry (1662-1714), commenting on 1 Samuel 2.1-10.
