I don't know what you mean by "What are the" but I can tell you who they are and what they did. Hophni and Phinehas were their names. They were priests at the tabernacle, but they disobeyed the laws of God, and took the prime meat cuts from the sacrifices for themselves, instead of giving to God. They also had adultery with the women who served at the tabernacle antrance. Eli was aware of this sin, but only reprimanded his sons for doing it, and did nothing else to stop it. Samuel prophesied that Eli, Eli's sons, and all their male descendants would die at a young age because of the sins of Hophni and Phinehas. Season
