And the LORD said to Samuel: "See, I am about to do something in Israel that will make the ears of everyone who hears of it tingle.112
At that time I will carry out against Eli everything2 I spoke against his family--from beginning to end.
For I told him that I would judge his family forever because of the sin he knew about; his sons made themselves contemptible,a and he failed to restrain3 them.
Therefore, I swore to the house of Eli, 'The guilt of Eli's house will never be atoned4 for by sacrifice or offering.' "
