1 Samuel 2:27-36

The Lord Rejects Eli’s Household

27And there came aa man of God to Eli and said to him, “Thus says the Lord, b‘Did I indeed reveal myself to the house of your father when they were in Egypt subject to the house of Pharaoh? 28 cDid I choose him out of all the tribes of Israel to be my priest, to go up to my altar, to burn incense, dto wear an ephod before me? eI gave to the house of your father all my offerings by fire from the people of Israel. 29Why then do you fscorn

my sacrifices and my offerings that I commanded for my dwelling, and honor your sons above me by fattening yourselves on the choicest parts of every offering of my people Israel?’
30Therefore the Lord, the God of Israel, declares: h‘I promised that your house and the house of your father should go in and out before me forever,’ ibut now the Lord declares: ‘Far be it from me, for those who honor me I will honor, and those who despise me shall be lightly esteemed. 31Behold, jthe days are coming when I will cut off your strength and the strength of your father’s house, so that there will not be an old man in your house. 32Then kin distress you will look with envious eye on all the prosperity that shall be bestowed on Israel, land there shall not be an old man in your house forever. 33The only one of you whom I shall not cut off from my altar shall be spared to weep his

34 pAnd this that shall come upon your two sons, Hophni and Phinehas, shall be the sign to you: both of them shall die qon the same day. 35 rAnd I will raise up for myself a faithful priest, who shall do according to what is in my heart and in my mind. sAnd I will build him a sure house, and he shall go in and out before tmy anointed forever. 36And everyone who is left in your house shall come to implore him for a piece of silver or a loaf of bread and shall say, “Please put me in one of the priests’ places, that I may eat a morsel of bread.”’”
