Ich'abod (Heb. I-kabdd' אַיאּכָבוֹד, Where is the glory? i.q. There is no glory, i.e. inglorious; Sept. Ι᾿ωχαβήδ v.r. Ε᾿χαβώδ, and even Οὐαιχαβώδ, etc.), the son of Phinehas and grandson of Eli. The pains of labor came upon his mother when she heard that the ark of God was taken, that her husband was slain in battle, and that these tidings had proved fatal to his father Eli. They were death-pains to her; and when those around sought to cheer her, saying, "Fear not, for thou hast borne a son," she only answered by giving him the name of Ichabod, adding, "The glory is departed from Israel" (1
Samuel 4:19-22). B.C. 1125. The name again occurs in 1Sa 14:3; where his son Ahitub is mentioned as the father of the priest Ahiah.
