1 Samuel 4:19-21

Context

4:19 His daughter-in-law, the wife of Phineas, was pregnant and close to giving birth. When she heard that the ark of God was captured and that her father-in-law and her husband were dead, she doubled over and gave birth. But her labor pains were too much for her. 4:20 As she was dying, the women who were there with her said, “Don’t be afraid! You have given birth to a son!” But she did not reply or pay any attention. 1 

4:21 She named the boy Ichabod, 2  saying, “The glory has departed from Israel,” referring to the capture of the ark of God and the deaths of her father-in-law and her husband.

1 tn Heb “and she did not set her heart.”

2 sn The name Ichabod (אִי־כָבוֹד) may mean, “Where is the glory?”
