Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Samuel 2:27-36.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Samuel 2:30

I said — Where, or when did God say this? To Eli himself, or to his father, when the priesthood was translated from Eleazar's to Ithamar's family. Walk — That is, minister unto me as high — priest. Walking is often put for discharging ones office; before me; may signify that he was the high — priest, whose sole prerogative it was to minister before God, or before the ark, in the most holy place. For ever — As long as the Mosaical law and worship lasts. Far from me — To fulfil my promise, which I hereby retract.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Samuel 2:30

Wherefore the LORD God of Israel saith, I said indeed [that] thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the LORD saith, (u) Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.

(u) God's promises are only effective to those he gives faith to fear and obey him.
