1 Samuel 1:16

Context
1:16 Don’t consider your servant a wicked woman, 1  for until now I have spoken from my deep pain and anguish.”

1 Samuel 2:12

Context
Eli’s Sons Misuse Their Sacred Office

2:12 The sons of Eli were wicked men. 2  They did not recognize the Lord’s authority. 3 

1 tn Heb “daughter of worthlessness.”

2 tn Heb “sons of worthlessness.”

3 tn Heb “they did not know the Lord.” The verb here has the semantic nuance “recognize the authority of.” Eli’s sons obviously knew who the Lord was; they served in his sanctuary. But they did not recognize his moral authority.
