Search The Scriptures —Study 3 — 1 Samuel 2:12-36. (Read also 3:11-14)

Study 3 From the Book of 1 Samuel is: 1 Samuel 2:12-36. (Read also 3:11-14)

  1. What aspects of the sins of Eli’s sons were specially grievous in God’s sight? See 2:12, 17, 25, 29; 3:13. What serious warning ought we to take from 2:25, 30 and 3:14?

  2. How did Eli fail? Cf. Pr. 29:17; Mt. 10:37. Over against 2:31 and 3:14 set 2:35. What may we learn from all this concerning the ways of God? Cf. 16:1.

Notes

  1. Verses 12-17. The misappropriation of Eli’s sons (‘the men’ of verse 17) was twofold. They took what they wanted rather than what was offered them; and they insisted on receiving their raw portion, before the Lord’s portion-the fat (Lv. 3:3-5)–was burned upon the altar.
