Eli is the priest, and his sons commit terrible sins in their roles as priests. Eli fusses at them, but their unacceptable behavior continues. God sends a warning to Eli through a prophet.  The Lord says:

1 Samuel 2:30-31Living Bible (TLB)

30 “Therefore, I, the Lord God of Israel, declare that although I promised that your branch of the tribe of Levi could always be my priests, it is ridiculous to think that what you are doing can continue. I will honor only those who honor me, and I will despise those who despise me. 31 I will put an end to your family, so that it will no longer serve as priests. Every member will die before his time. None shall live to be old.
