I Samuel 2

Hannah brought her son new clothes every year and she went on to have three more sons and two daughters.

So Eli’s sons, Hophni and Phineas, were godless jerks who abused their priestly powers. They would take both boiled and raw meat, more than their share, from people offering sacrifices. They would also make the women who served at the tabernacle to have sex with them. People complained, so eventually, Eli had to confront them. He warned them that they were courting God’s wrath, but they blew him off.

One day a dude happened by who brought a message from God to Eli, rebuking him for his sons’ behavior and his own inaction, and prophesied that Eli’s house would come to death and ruin.
