John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Samuel 2:17

Abhorred — But we know the validity and efficacy of the sacraments does not depend on the goodness of those that administer them. It was therefore folly and sin in the people, to think the worse of God's institutions. But it was the much greater sin of the priests, that gave them occasion so to do.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Samuel 2:17

Wherefore the sin of the young men was very great before the LORD: for men (o) abhorred the offering of the LORD.

(o) Seeing the horrible abuse of it.
