1 Samuel 2:22-25

Eli Rebukes His Sons

22Now Eli was very old, and he kept hearing all that his sons were doing to all Israel, and how they lay with the women who a  were serving at the entrance to the tent of meeting. 23And he said to them, “Why do you do such things? For I hear of your evil dealings from all these people. 24No, my sons; it is no good report that I hear the people of the  Lord spreading abroad. 25If someone sins against a man, God will mediate for him, but if someone sins against the  Lord, who can intercede for him?” But they would not listen to the voice of their father b  for it was the will of the  Lord to put them to death.

1 Samuel 7:3

Samuel Judges Israel

3And Samuel said to all the house of Israel, c  If you are returning to the  Lord with all your heart, then d  put away the foreign gods and the e  Ashtaroth from among you and f  direct your heart to the  Lord g  and serve him only, and he will deliver you out of the hand of the Philistines.”

Psalms 78:58

58For they h  provoked him to anger with their i  high places;
they j  moved him to jealousy with their k  idols.
