1 Samuel 4 (WEBP)
 The word of Samuel came to all Israel. Now Israel went out against the Philistines to battle, and encamped beside Ebenezer; and the Philistines encamped in Aphek.
 The Philistines put themselves in array against Israel. When they joined battle, Israel was defeated by the Philistines, who killed about four thousand men of the army in the field.
 When the people had come into the camp, the elders of Israel said, “Why has Yahweh defeated us today before the Philistines? Let’s get the ark of Yahweh’s covenant out of Shiloh and bring it to us, that it may come among us and save us out of the hand of our enemies.”
 So the people sent to Shiloh, and they brought from there the ark of the covenant of Yahweh of Armies, who sits above the cherubim; and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were there with the ark of the covenant of God.
 When the ark of Yahweh’s covenant came into the camp, all Israel shouted with a great shout, so that the earth resounded.
 When the Philistines heard the noise of the shout, they said, “What does the noise of this great shout in the camp of the Hebrews mean?” They understood that Yahweh’s ark had come into the camp.
 The Philistines were afraid, for they said, “God has come into the camp.” They said, “Woe to us! For there has not been such a thing before.
 Woe to us! Who shall deliver us out of the hand of these mighty gods? These are the gods that struck the Egyptians with all kinds of plagues in the wilderness.
 Be strong and behave like men, O you Philistines, that you not be servants to the Hebrews, as they have been to you. Strengthen yourselves like men, and fight!”
 The Philistines fought, and Israel was defeated, and each man fled to his tent. There was a very great slaughter; for thirty thousand footmen of Israel fell.
 God’s ark was taken; and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were slain.
 A man of Benjamin ran out of the army and came to Shiloh the same day, with his clothes torn and with dirt on his head.
 When he came, behold, Eli was sitting on his seat by the road watching, for his heart trembled for God’s ark. When the man came into the city and told about it, all the city cried out.
 When Eli heard the noise of the crying, he said, “What does the noise of this tumult mean?” The man hurried, and came and told Eli.
 Now Eli was ninety-eight years old. His eyes were set, so that he could not see.
 The man said to Eli, “I am he who came out of the army, and I fled today out of the army.” He said, “How did the matter go, my son?”
 He who brought the news answered, “Israel has fled before the Philistines, and there has been also a great slaughter among the people. Your two sons also, Hophni and Phinehas, are dead, and God’s ark has been captured.”
 When he made mention of God’s ark, Eli fell from off his seat backward by the side of the gate; and his neck broke, and he died, for he was an old man and heavy. He had judged Israel forty years.
 His daughter-in-law, Phinehas’ wife, was with child, near to giving birth. When she heard the news that God’s ark was taken and that her father-in-law and her husband were dead, she bowed herself and gave birth; for her pains came on her.
 About the time of her death the women who stood by her said to her, “Don’t be afraid, for you have given birth to a son.” But she didn’t answer, neither did she regard it.
 She named the child Ichabod,° saying, “The glory has departed from Israel!” because God’s ark was taken, and because of her father-in-law and her husband.
 She said, “The glory has departed from Israel; for God’s ark has been taken.”
1 Samuel 4:21 “Ichabod” means “no glory”.

1 Samuel 4 (KJVS)
 And the word H1697 of Samuel H8050 came to all Israel H3478. Now Israel H3478 went out H3318 (8799) against H7125 (8800) the Philistines H6430 to battle H4421, and pitched H2583 (8799) beside Ebenezer H72: and the Philistines H6430 pitched H2583 (8804) in Aphek H663.
 And the Philistines H6430 put themselves in array H6186 (8799) against H7125 (8800) Israel H3478: and when they joined H5203 (8799) battle H4421, Israel H3478 was smitten H5062 (8735) before H6440 the Philistines H6430: and they slew H5221 (8686) of the army H4634 in the field H7704 about four H702 thousand H505 men H376.
 And when the people H5971 were come H935 (8799) into the camp H4264, the elders H2205 of Israel H3478 said H559 (8799), Wherefore hath the LORD H3068 smitten H5062 (8804) us to day H3117 before H6440 the Philistines H6430? Let us fetch H3947 (8799) the ark H727 of the covenant H1285 of the LORD H3068 out of Shiloh H7887 unto us, that, when it cometh H935 (8799) among H7130 us, it may save H3467 (8686) us out of the hand H3709 of our enemies H341 (8802).
 So the people H5971 sent H7971 (8799) to Shiloh H7887, that they might bring H5375 (8799) from thence the ark H727 of the covenant H1285 of the LORD H3068 of hosts H6635, which dwelleth H3427 (8802) [between] the cherubims H3742: and the two H8147 sons H1121 of Eli H5941, Hophni H2652 and Phinehas H6372, [were] there with the ark H727 of the covenant H1285 of God H430.
 And when the ark H727 of the covenant H1285 of the LORD H3068 came H935 (8800) into the camp H4264, all Israel H3478 shouted H7321 (8686) with a great H1419 shout H8643, so that the earth H776 rang again H1949 (8735).
 And when the Philistines H6430 heard H8085 (8799) the noise H6963 of the shout H8643, they said H559 (8799), What [meaneth] the noise H6963 of this great H1419 shout H8643 in the camp H4264 of the Hebrews H5680? And they understood H3045 (8799) that the ark H727 of the LORD H3068 was come H935 (8804) into the camp H4264.
 And the Philistines H6430 were afraid H3372 (8799), for they said H559 (8804), God H430 is come H935 (8804) into the camp H4264. And they said H559 (8799), Woe H188 unto us! for there hath not been such a thing heretofore H865 H8032.
 Woe H188 unto us! who shall deliver H5337 (8686) us out of the hand H3027 of these mighty H117 Gods H430? these [are] the Gods H430 that smote H5221 (8688) the Egyptians H4714 with all the plagues H4347 in the wilderness H4057.
 Be strong H2388 (8690), and quit H1961 (8798) yourselves like men H582, O ye Philistines H6430, that ye be not servants H5647 (8799) unto the Hebrews H5680, as they have been H5647 (8804) to you: quit H1961 (8804) yourselves like men H582, and fight H3898 (8738).
 And the Philistines H6430 fought H3898 (8735), and Israel H3478 was smitten H5062 (8735), and they fled H5127 (8799) every man H376 into his tent H168: and there was a very H3966 great H1419 slaughter H4347; for there fell H5307 (8799) of Israel H3478 thirty H7970 thousand H505 footmen H7273.
 And the ark H727 of God H430 was taken H3947 (8738); and the two H8147 sons H1121 of Eli H5941, Hophni H2652 and Phinehas H6372, were slain H4191 (8804).
 And there ran H7323 (8799) a man H376 of Benjamin H1144 out of the army H4634, and came H935 (8799) to Shiloh H7887 the same day H3117 with his clothes H4055 rent H7167 (8803), and with earth H127 upon his head H7218.
 And when he came H935 (8799), lo, Eli H5941 sat H3427 (8802) upon a seat H3678 by the wayside H1870 H3027 (8675) H3197 watching H6822 (8764): for his heart H3820 trembled H2730 for the ark H727 of God H430. And when the man H376 came H935 (8802) into the city H5892, and told H5046 (8687) [it], all the city H5892 cried out H2199 (8799).
 And when Eli H5941 heard H8085 (8799) the noise H6963 of the crying H6818, he said H559 (8799), What [meaneth] the noise H6963 of this tumult H1995? And the man H376 came H935 (8799) in hastily H4116 (8765), and told H5046 (8686) Eli H5941.
 Now Eli H5941 was ninety H8673 and eight H8083 years H8141 old H1121; and his eyes H5869 were dim H6965 (8804), that he could H3201 (8804) not see H7200 (8800).
 And the man H376 said H559 (8799) unto Eli H5941, I [am] he that came H935 (8802) out of the army H4634, and I fled H5127 (8804) to day H3117 out of the army H4634. And he said H559 (8799), What is there done H1697, my son H1121?
 And the messenger H1319 (8764) answered H6030 (8799) and said H559 (8799), Israel H3478 is fled H5127 (8804) before H6440 the Philistines H6430, and there hath been also a great H1419 slaughter H4046 among the people H5971, and thy two H8147 sons H1121 also, Hophni H2652 and Phinehas H6372, are dead H4191 (8804), and the ark H727 of God H430 is taken H3947 (8738).
 And it came to pass, when he made mention H2142 (8687) of the ark H727 of God H430, that he fell H5307 (8799) from off the seat H3678 backward H322 by H1157 the side H3027 of the gate H8179, and his neck H4665 brake H7665 (8735), and he died H4191 (8799): for he was an old H2204 (8804) man H376, and heavy H3513 (8804). And he had judged H8199 (8804) Israel H3478 forty H705 years H8141.
 And his daughter in law H3618, Phinehas H6372’ wife H802, was with child H2030, [near] to be delivered H3205 (8800): and when she heard H8085 (8799) the tidings H8052 that H413 the ark H727 of God H430 was taken H3947 (8736), and that her father in law H2524 and her husband H376 were dead H4191 (8804), she bowed H3766 (8799) herself and travailed H3205 (8799); for her pains H6735 came H2015 (8738) upon her.
 And about the time H6256 of her death H4191 (8800) the women that stood H5324 (8737) by her said H1696 (8762) unto her, Fear H3372 (8799) not; for thou hast born H3205 (8804) a son H1121. But she answered H6030 (8804) not, neither did she regard H7896 (8804) H3820 [it].
 And she named H7121 (8799) the child H5288 Ichabod H350, saying H559 (8800), The glory H3519 is departed H1540 (8804) from Israel H3478: because H413 the ark H727 of God H430 was taken H3947 (8736), and because of her father in law H2524 and her husband H376.
 And she said H559 (8799), The glory H3519 is departed H1540 (8804) from Israel H3478: for the ark H727 of God H430 is taken H3947 (8738).
Young’s Literal Translation
1 Samuel 4 (YLT)
 And the word of Samuel is to all Israel, and Israel goeth out to meet the Philistines for battle, and they encamp by Eben-Ezer, and the Philistines have encamped in Aphek,
 and the Philistines set themselves in array to meet Israel, and the battle spreadeth itself, and Israel is smitten before the Philistines, and they smite among the ranks in the field about four thousand men.
 And the people cometh in unto the camp, and the elders of Israel say, ‘Why hath Jehovah smitten us to-day before the Philistines? we take unto us from Shiloh the ark of the covenant of Jehovah, and it cometh into our midst, and He doth save us out of the hand of our enemies.’
 And the people sendeth to Shiloh, and they take up thence the ark of the covenant of Jehovah of Hosts, inhabiting the cherubs, and there are two sons of Eli, with the ark of the covenant of God, Hophni and Phinehas.
 And it cometh to pass, at the coming in of the ark of the covenant of Jehovah unto the camp, that all Israel shout-a great shout-and the earth is moved.
 And the Philistines hear the noise of the shouting, and say, ‘What is the noise of this great shout in the camp of the Hebrews?’ and they perceive that the ark of Jehovah hath come in unto the camp.
 And the Philistines are afraid, for they said, ‘God hath come in unto the camp;’ and they say, ‘Woe to us, for there hath not been like this heretofore.
 Woe to us, who doth deliver us out of the hand of these honourable gods? these are the gods who are smiting the Egyptians with every plague in the wilderness.
 Strengthen yourselves, and become men, O Philistines, lest ye do service to Hebrews, as they have done to you-then ye have become men, and have fought.’
 And the Philistines fight, and Israel is smitten, and they flee each to his tents, and the blow is very great, and there fall of Israel thirty thousand footmen;
 and the ark of God hath been taken, and the two sons of Eli have died, Hophni and Phinehas.
 And a man of Benjamin runneth out of the ranks, and cometh into Shiloh, on that day, and his long robes are rent, and earth on his head;
 and he cometh in, and lo, Eli is sitting on the throne by the side of the way, watching, for his heart hath been trembling for the ark of God, and the man hath come in to declare it in the city, and all the city crieth out.
 And Eli heareth the noise of the cry, and saith, ‘What-the noise of this tumult!’ And the man hasted, and cometh in, and declareth to Eli.
 And Eli is a son of ninety and eight years, and his eyes have stood, and he hath not been able to see.
 And the man saith unto Eli, ‘I am he who hath come out of the ranks, and I out of the ranks have fled to-day;’ and he saith, ‘What hath been the matter, my son?’
 And he who is bearing tidings answereth and saith, ‘Israel hath fled before the Philistines, and also a great slaughter hath been among the people, and also thy two sons have died-Hophni and Phinehas-and the ark of God hath been captured.’
 And it cometh to pass, at his mentioning the ark of God, that he falleth from off the throne backward, by the side of the gate, and his neck is broken, and he dieth, for the man is old and heavy, and he hath judged Israel forty years.
 And his daughter-in-law, wife of Phinehas, is pregnant, about to bear, and she heareth the report of the taking of the ark of God, that her father-in-law and her husband have died, and she boweth, and beareth, for her pains have turned upon her.
 And at the time of her death, when the women who are standing by her say, ‘Fear not, for a son thou hast borne,’ she hath not answered, nor set her heart to it;
 and she calleth the youth I-Chabod, saying, ‘Honour hath removed from Israel,’ because of the taking of the ark of God, and because of her father-in-law and her husband.
 And she saith, ‘Honour hath removed from Israel, for the ark of God hath been taken.’
