Jehovah desired them to die

1 Samuel 2:22-25

22 And Eli was very old and had heard all that his sons did to Israel, and they lay with the women who served at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

23 And he said to them, Why do you do things like these which I am hearing, of your evil things from all these people.

24 No, my sons, for the report which I am hearing is not good, causing the people of Jehovah to transgress.

25 If a man sins against a man, then God shall judge him. But if a man sins against Jehovah, who shall pray for him? But they did not listen to the voice of their father because Jehovah desired to cause them to die.

Comment– Eli’s sons didn’t repent of their wickedness and listen to the voice of their father because Jehovah wanted to cause them to die
