and Ahijah was wearing an ephod. He was the son of Ahitub, Ichabod’s brother, the son of Phinehas the son of Eli, the priest of Yahweh in Shiloh. And the people did not know that Jonathan was gone. Bible other translations

“Ahijah was wearing an ephod.” So Ahijah was the High Priest at this time, but this is somewhat ominous because Ahijah was a priest in the line of Eli whose descendants would lose the priesthood, and they are serving a king who has lost his kingship.
