1 Samuel 7:12-14

Samuel Judges Israel

12 Then Samuel m took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen 1 and called its name Ebenezer; 2 for he said, "Till now the Lord has helped us." 13 n So the Philistines were subdued and did not again enter the territory of Israel. And the hand of the Lord was against the Philistines all the days of Samuel. 14 The cities that the Philistines had taken from Israel were restored to Israel, from Ekron to Gath, and Israel delivered their territory from the hand of the Philistines. There was peace also between Israel and the Amorites.
