`Why do you kick at My sacrifice and at My offering which I have commanded in My dwelling, and honor your sons above Me, by making yourselves fat with the choicest of every offering of My people Israel?' (1 Samuel 2:29)

"Therefore the LORD God of Israel declares, `I did indeed say that your house and the house of your father should walk before Me forever'; but now the LORD declares, `Far be it from Me--for those who honor Me I will honor, and those who despise Me will be lightly esteemed. (1 Samuel 2:30)

`Behold, the days are coming when I will break your strength and the strength of your father's house so that there will not be an old man in your house. (1 Samuel 2:31)
