1 Samuel 7

  1 H582 And the men H7157 of Kirjathjearim H935 [H8799] came, H5927 [H8686] and brought up H727 the ark H3068 of the LORD, H935 [H8686] and brought H1004 it into the house H41 of Abinadab H1389 on the hill, H6942 [H8765] and sanctified H499 Eleazar H1121 his son H8104 [H8800] to keep H727 the ark H3068 of the LORD.
  2 H3117 And it came to pass, while H727 the ark H3427 [H8800] abode H7157 in Kirjathjearim, H3117 that the time H7235 [H8799] was long; H6242 for it was twenty H8141 years: H1004 and all the house H3478 of Israel H5091 [H8735] lamented H310 after H3068 the LORD.
  3 H8050 And Samuel H559 [H8799] spoke H1004 to all the house H3478 of Israel, H559 [H8800] saying, H7725 [H8802] If ye do return H3068 to the LORD H3824 with all your hearts, H5493 [H8685] then put away H5236 the foreign H430 gods H6252 and Ashtaroth H8432 from among H3559 [H8685] you, and prepare H3824 your hearts H3068 to the LORD, H5647 [H8798] and serve H5337 [H8686] him only: and he will deliver H3027 you from the hand H6430 of the Philistines.
  4 H1121 Then the sons H3478 of Israel H5493 [H8686] put away H1168 Baalim H6252 and Ashtaroth, H5647 [H8799] and served H3068 the LORD only.
  5 H8050 And Samuel H559 [H8799] said, H6908 [H8798] Gather H3478 all Israel H4708 to Mizpeh, H6419 [H8691] and I will pray H3068 for you to the LORD.
  6 H6908 [H8735] And they gathered together H4709 at Mizpeh, H7579 [H8799] and drew H4325 water, H8210 [H8799] and poured it out H6440 at the face of H3068 the LORD, H6684 [H8799] and fasted H3117 on that day, H559 [H8799] and there said, H2398 [H8804] We have sinned H3068 against the LORD. H8050 And Samuel H8199 [H8799] judged H1121 the sons H3478 of Israel H4708 in Mizpeh.
  7 H6430 And when the Philistines H8085 [H8799] heard H1121 that the sons H3478 of Israel H6908 [H8694] were gathered together H4708 at Mizpeh, H5633 the lords H6430 of the Philistines H5927 [H8799] went up H3478 against Israel. H1121 And when the sons H3478 of Israel H8085 [H8799] heard H3372 [H8799] it, they were afraid H6440 of H6430 the Philistines.
  8 H1121 And the sons H3478 of Israel H559 [H8799] said H8050 to Samuel, H2790 [H8686] Cease H2199 [H8800] not to cry H3068 to the LORD H430 our God H3467 [H8686] for us, that he will liberate H3027 us from the hand H6430 of the Philistines.
  9 H8050 And Samuel H3947 [H8799] took H259 a H2461 sucking H2924 lamb, H5927 [H8686] and offered H5930 it for a burnt offering H3632 wholly H3068 to the LORD: H8050 and Samuel H2199 [H8799] cried H3068 to the LORD H3478 for Israel; H3068 and the LORD H6030 [H8799] heard him.
  10 H8050 And as Samuel H5927 [H8688] was offering H5930 the burnt offering, H6430 the Philistines H5066 [H8738] drew near H4421 to battle H3478 against Israel: H3068 but the LORD H7481 [H8686] thundered H1419 with a great H6963 thunder H3117 on that day H6430 upon the Philistines, H2000 [H8799] and smote H5062 [H8735] them; and they were smitten H6440 at the face of H3478 Israel.
  11 H582 And the men H3478 of Israel H3318 [H8799] went out H4709 of Mizpeh, H7291 [H8799] and pursued H6430 the Philistines, H5221 [H8686] and smote H1033 them, until they came under Bethcar.
  12 H8050 Then Samuel H3947 [H8799] took H259 a H68 stone, H7760 [H8799] and set H4709 it between Mizpeh H8129 and Shen, H7121 [H8799] and called H8034 the name H72 of it Ebenezer, H559 [H8799] saying, H3068 Thus far hath the LORD H5826 [H8804] helped us.
  13 H6430 So the Philistines H3665 [H8735] were subdued, H935 [H8800] and they came H3254 [H8804] no more H1366 into the land H3478 of Israel: H3027 and the hand H3068 of the LORD H6430 was against the Philistines H3117 all the days H8050 of Samuel.
  14 H5892 And the cities H6430 which the Philistines H3947 [H8804] had taken H3478 from Israel H7725 [H8799] were restored H3478 to Israel, H6138 from Ekron H1661 even to Gath; H1366 and its land H3478 did Israel H5337 [H8689] deliver H3027 from the hands H6430 of the Philistines. H7965 And there was peace H3478 between Israel H567 and the Amorites.
  15 H8050 And Samuel H8199 [H8799] judged H3478 Israel H3117 all the days H2416 of his life.
  16 H1980 [H8804] And he went H1767 from H8141 year H8141 to year H5437 [H8804] in circuit H1008 to Bethel, H1537 and Gilgal, H4709 and Mizpeh, H8199 [H8804] and judged H3478 Israel H4725 in all those places.
  17 H8666 And his return H7414 was to Ramah; H1004 for there was his house; H8199 [H8804] and there he judged H3478 Israel; H1129 [H8799] and there he built H4196 an altar H3068 to the LORD.
