Selected verses…

Old Testament –

“And the child Samuel ministered unto the LORD before Eli. And the word of the LORD was precious in those days;  no open vision.  And it came to pass at that time, when Eli laid down in his place, and his eyes began to wax dim, he could not see; and ere the lamp of God went out in the temple of the LORD, where the ark of God, and Samuel was laid down; that the LORD called ‘Samuel:’ and he answered, ‘Here I.’  And he ran unto Eli, and said, ‘Here I; for thou calledst me.’ And he said, ‘I called not; lie down again.’ And he went and lay down.  And the LORD called yet again, ‘Samuel.’  And Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said, ‘Here I; for thou didst call me.’ And he answered, ‘I called not, my son; lie down again.’  Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, neither was the word of the LORD yet revealed unto him.  And the LORD called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli, and said, ‘Here I; for thou didst call me.’ And Eli perceived that the LORD had called the child.  Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, ‘Go, lie down: and it shall be, if He call thee, that thou shalt say, ‘Speak, LORD; for thy servant heareth.” So Samuel went and lay down in his place.  And the LORD came, and stood, and called as at other times, ‘Samuel, Samuel.’ Then Samuel answered, ‘Speak; for Thy servant heareth.'”  1 Samuel 3:1-10 (KJV)

New Testament –

“When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, He groaned in the spirit, and was troubled, and said, ‘Where have ye laid him?’ They said unto Him, ‘Lord, come and see.’  Jesus wept.  Then said the Jews, ‘Behold how He loved him!’  And some of them said, ‘Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?’  Jesus therefore again groaning in Himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.  Jesus said, ‘Take ye away the stone.’ Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto Him, ‘Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been four days.’  Jesus saith unto her, ‘Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?’  Then they took away the stone where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up eyes, and said, ‘Father, I thank Thee that Thou hast heard Me.  And I knew that Thou hearest Me always: but because of the people which stand by I said, that they may believe that Thou hast sent Me.’  And when He thus had spoken, He cried with a loud voice, ‘Lazarus, come forth.’  And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, ‘Loose him, and let him go.'” John 11:33-44
