Read See 1 Samuel 2:12-26 &
3:13-14 about Eli & his sons
Tender and Tough
Lesson 4 - Chapter 6
43
1 Samuel 2:12-26 Now the sons of Eli
were corrupt; they did not know the Lord.
And the priests custom with the people was
that when any man offered a sacrifice, the
priests servant would come with a three-
pronged fleshhook in his hand while the
meat was boiling. Then he would thrust it
into the pan, or kettle, or caldron, or pot;
and the priest would take for himself all that
the fleshhook brought up.
Tender and Tough
Lesson 4 - Chapter 6
44
So they did in Shiloh to all the Israelites who
came there. Also, before they burned the
fat, the priests servant would come and say
to the man who sacrificed, Give meat for
roasting to the priest, for he will not take
boiled meat from you, but raw.
Tender and Tough
Lesson 4 - Chapter 6
45
16
And if the man said to him, They should
really burn the fat first; then you may take
as much as your heart desires, he would
then answer him, No, but you must give it
now; and if not, I will take it by force.
Therefore the sin of the young men was
very great before the Lord, for men
abhorred the offering of the Lord.

Samuels Childhood Ministry

But Samuel ministered before the Lord,
even as a child, wearing a linen ephod.
Moreover his mother used to make him a
little robe, and bring it to him year by year
when she came up with her husband to
offer the yearly sacrifice. And Eli would
bless Elkanah and his wife, and say,

Lesson 4 - Chapter 6
47
The Lord give you descendants from this
woman for the loan that was given to the
Lord. Then they would go to their own
home. And the Lord visited Hannah, so that
she conceived and bore three sons and two
daughters. Meanwhile the child Samuel
grew before the Lord.

Lesson 4 - Chapter 6
48
22
Now Eli was very old; and he heard
everything his sons did to all Israel, and
how they lay with the women who
assembled at the door of the tabernacle of
meeting. So he said to them, Why do you
do such things? For I hear of your evil
dealings from all the people. No, my sons!
Tender and Tough
Lesson 4 - Chapter 6
49
For it is not a good report that I hear. You
make the Lords people transgress. If one
man sins against another, God will judge
him. But if a man sins against the Lord, who
will intercede for him? Nevertheless they
did not heed the voice of their father,
because the Lord desired to kill them.
And the child Samuel grew in stature, and
sin favour both with the Lord and men.
Tender and Tough
Lesson 4 - Chapter 6
50
2 Samuel 3:13-14
For I have told him that I will judge his
house forever for the iniquity which he
knows, because his sons made
themselves vile, and he did not restrain
them. And therefore I have sworn to the
house of Eli that the iniquity of Elis house
shall not be atoned for by sacrifice or
offering forever.

my wife to be completely comfortable around
me. I want her to know that she is safe when I
am around, especially when were with others.
Please forgive me for knowingly or unknowingly
hurting my wife by my choice of words and
jokes. Help me to listen to her and to value
what she says, even when I dont agree. I
determine right now to build my wife up, not
only when in public, but also when were all
alone. I ask You to help me achieve these
goals so that our marriage brings glory to You.
Thank You, Father. Amen
