John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Samuel 1:10

Bitterness — That is, oppressed with grief. Prayed unto the Lord — They had newly offered their peace — offerings, to obtain the favour of God, and in token of their communion with him, they had feasted upon the sacrifice: and now it was proper to put up her prayer, in virtue of the sacrifice. For the peace — offerings typified Christ's mediation, as well as the sin — offerings: since by this not only atonement is made for sin, but an answer to our prayers obtained.
