1 Samuel 4:19–22

M G V S

19  And his daughter-in-law, Phinehas' wife, was with child, near to be delivered; and when she heard the tidings that the ark of God was taken, and that her father-in-law and her husband were dead, she bowed herself and brought forth; for her pains came suddenly upon her.

20  And about the time of her death the women that stood by her said unto her: 'Fear not; for thou hast brought forth a son.' But she answered not, neither did she regard it.

20  And in her time she was at the point of death; and the women that stood by her, said to her, Fear not, for thou hast born a son: but she answered not, and her heart did not regard it.

20  Then, when she was near death, those who were standing around her said to her, “You should not be afraid, for you have given birth to a son.” But she did not respond to them, and she did not notice them.

21  And she named the child Ichabod, saying: 'The glory is departed from Israel'; because the ark of God was taken, and because of her father-in-law and her husband.

21  And she called the child Uaebarchaboth, because of the ark of God, and because of her father-in-law, and because of her husband.

22  And she said: 'The glory is departed from Israel; for the ark of God is taken.'

22  And they said, The glory of Israel is departed, forasmuch as the ark of the Lord is taken.

22  And she said, “The glory has been taken away from Israel,” because the ark of God had been captured.
