1 Samuel 2:28

2:28 I chose your ancestor 1  from all the tribes of Israel to be my priest, to offer sacrifice on my altar, to burn incense, and to bear the ephod before me. I gave to your ancestor’s house all the fire offerings made by the Israelites.

1 Samuel 2:30


2:30 Therefore the Lord, the God of Israel, says, ‘I really did say 2  that your house and your ancestor’s house would serve 3  me forever.’ But now the Lord says, ‘May it never be! 4  For I will honor those who honor me, but those who despise me will be cursed!

2 tn The infinitive absolute appears before the finite verb for emphasis.

3 tn Heb “walk about before.”

4 tn Heb “may it be far removed from me.”
