Eli was another judge of Israel. As the video mentioned, he had two sons who simply did not take the things of God seriously. They behaved poorly and Eli wasn't hard enough on them to correct their behavior. Because of this - God told Eli that he would be cursed for this and that his sons would die on the same day. Some years later, the Philistines attacked the Israelites. The Israelites foolishly thought they could take the Ark of God into battle and that it would help them win and would not be taken from them. They were wrong. The Philistines captured the Ark. The Ark represented the presence of God for Israel. So with no ark, there was no presence of God. Eli was nearly blind by this time and he heard all of the commotion coming from the battle and asked what was happening. His sons had been killed in battle and the Ark of God was captured! When he heard the news about the Ark, he fell back in his chair and broke his neck. His daughter-in-law was very near having a baby and when the news reached her that her husband, brother-in-law, and father-in-law had died - the grief put her into labor. Her labor mixed with grief was too much for her and she was overcome and died. The child that was born was named Ichabod which means "The glory has departed from Israel."
