New Defender's Study Bible Notes
2:30 God of Israel saith. See Exodus 29:9; Numbers 25:13.
2:30 lightly esteemed. This judgment (I Samuel 2:30-33) indicates that the priestly line descended from Eli would eventually be terminated. This prophecy was finally carried out when Solomon banished Abiathar and replaced him with Zadok (I Kings 2:27). See also I Samuel 3:12.
