God’s “two” wills

“But they would not listen to the voice of their father, for it was the will of the LORD to put them to death” (1 Samuel 2:25).

Implication: Eli’s sons were doing God’s will.

“And I will raise up for myself a faithful priest, who shall do according to what is in my heart and in my mind” (1 Samuel 2:35)

Implication: Eli’s sons were not doing God’s will.
