 Ichabod
    When the tidings of the disastrous defeat of the Israelites in
    the battle against the Philistines near to Mizpeh were carried
    to Shiloh, the wife of Phinehas "was 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 travailed" (1 Sam. 4:19-22). In her great distress
    she regarded not "the women that stood by her," but named the
    child that was born "Ichabod" i.e., no glory, saying, "The glory
    is departed from Isreal;" and with that word on her lips she
    expired.
