Ichabod

Additional Links

ICHABOD . Son of Phinehas and grandson of Eli. The name means ‘inglorious,’ but probably should be ‘Jahweh is glory,’ from an original Jochebed . If this guess be well founded, then the turn given to the story in 1 Samuel 4:21 is due to a desire to mould it on the story of the birth of Benjamin in Genesis 35:18 .
