(11) And the ark of God was taken.--The bare fact, without comment or note, is given of this, the greatest calamity that had yet happened to Israel. All the people would know by this terrible sign that their invisible King had withdrawn His countenance from them; but the loss of the Ark to the heathen taught another lesson, not merely for the Israel of the days of Eli and Samuel--the eternal truth that "the living God does not bind His presence to a dead thing" (Erdmann). But though it was a dead thing, it was inexpressibly precious to the patriot Israelite. Was it not the ark "which Moses had made by God's command at Sinai, and on which the Divine presence was enshrined in the Holy of Holies; and which had accompanied Israel in their marches through the wilderness, and before which the waters of Jordan had fled backward, and the walls of Jericho had fallen down?--that ark was taken by idolaters."--Bishop Wordsworth.

The two sons of Eli . . . were slain.--This was in strict accordance with the saying of the man of God. (See 1Samuel 2:34.)

Verse 11. - Moreover, the ark of God was taken, and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were slain, according to the prediction of the man of God. Probably the last resistance was made round the ark, and the sons of Eli at least died "as men" (1 Samuel 2:33). THE OVERTHROW OF ELI'S HOUSE (vers. 12-22). 4:10,11 The taking of the ark was a great judgment upon Israel, and a certain token of God's displeasure. Let none think to shelter themselves from the wrath of God, under the cloak of outward profession.
