Bible: 1 Sam 2:22-25

2:22 Now Eli was very old when he heard about everything that his sons used to do to all the people of Israel 1  and how they used to have sex with 2  the women who were stationed at the entrance to the tent of meeting. 2:23 He said to them, “Why do you behave in this way? For I hear about these evil things from all these 3  people. 2:24 This ought not to be, 4  my sons! For the report that I hear circulating among the Lord’s people is not good. 2:25 If a man sins against a man, one may appeal to God on his behalf. But if a man sins against the Lord, who then will intercede for him?” But Eli’s sons 5  would not listen to their father, for the Lord had decided 6  to kill them.
