Eli (biblical figure)

Eli, a descendant of Aaron, was high priest, and a judge, being the predecessor of Samuel, the last of the judges. Now Eli had two sons who "were sons of Belial; they knew not the Lord."

Eli, being very old, "heard all that his sons did unto all Israel; and how they lay with the women that assembled at the door of the tabernacle...." And Eli argued with them; "notwithstanding they harkened not unto the voice of their father."
