Adler number: eta,206
Translated headword: Eli
Vetting Status: high
A priest in Israel. His sons were Ophni and Phinees: [it was they] whom divine justice sought out because of their drunkenness and their lack of discipline in performing sacrifices. For they were killed in a terrible way in war, but he [died] after having heard the voice of God saying: "I say, thy household will walk before me for ever. and now [I do not say] in this way [any more], but [I say that] I will honour those who honour me, and those who despise me shall be held in the lowest esteem; and I shall utterly destroy thy seed from my altar." And again: "look, I exact vengeance from the house of Eli for ever, for the impious actions of his sons".
Greek Original:
Ἠλεί, ἱερεὺς Ἰσραήλ. υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ Ὀφνεὶ καὶ Φινεές: οὓς τῇ παροινίᾳ καὶ τῇ ἀταξίᾳ τῇ ἐπὶ τῶν θυσιῶν μετῆλθεν ἡ θεία δίκη. οἱ μὲν γὰρ ἐν πολέμῳ δεινῶς ἀνῃρέθησαν, ὁ δὲ τῆς θείας ἀκούσας φωνῆς λεγούσης: εἶπα, ὁ οἶκός σου διελεύσεται ἐνώπιόν μου ἕως αἰῶνος. καὶ νῦν οὐχ οὕτως, ἀλλ' ἢ τοὺς δοξάζοντάς με δοξάσω, καὶ οἱ ἐξουθενοῦντές με ἀτιμασθήσονται, καὶ ἐξολοθρεύσω τὸ σπέρμα σου ἐκ τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου μου. καὶ πάλιν: ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ ἐκδικῶ τὸν οἶκον Ἠλεὶ ἕως αἰῶνος ἐν ἀδικίαις υἱῶν αὐτοῦ.
George the Monk, Chronicon 159.17 - 160.6. For Eli's story cf. I Samuel 12-36.
