Chapter Summary

This chapter proposes the incubation type-scene as a literary device that informs the composition of the Hannah story. The key role of the Hannah story in the books of Samuel as a whole has already been noticed by many scholars. The chapter focuses on two points relating to the incubation type-scene. First, it discusses how some of the component motifs of the incubation type-scene are further developed in the subsequent chapters of the books of Samuel. Second, the chapter discusses how the incubation theme is utilized by the narrator in the last chapters of Judges and the first book of Samuel; in particular, the reception of prophetic oracles by the people of Israel in Judges 20–21, by Saul in 1 Samuel 9 and 28, and by Samuel in 1 Samuel 3, 9 and 15.
