First Samuel 7


7:1 And the men of Kirjath-jearim came, and brought up the ark
 of the LORD, and brought it into the house of Abinadab on the
 hill, and sanctified Eleazar his son to keep the ark of the
 LORD.
7:2 And it came to pass, while the ark abode in Kirjath-jearim,
 that the time was long; for it was twenty years: and all the
 house of Israel lamented after the LORD.
7:3 And Samuel spoke to all the house of Israel, saying, If ye
 do return to the LORD with all your hearts, [then] put away the
 strange gods, and Ashtaroth, from among you, and prepare your
 hearts to the LORD, and serve him only: and he will deliver you
 from the hand of the Philistines.
7:4 Then the children of Israel put away Baalim, and Ashtaroth,
 and served the LORD only.
7:5 And Samuel said, Gather all Israel to Mizpeh, and I will
 pray for you to the LORD.
7:6 And they assembled at Mizpeh, and drew water, and poured
 [it] out before the LORD, and fasted on that day, and there
 said, We have sinned against the LORD. And Samuel judged the
 children of Israel in Mizpeh.
7:7 And when the Philistines heard that the children of Israel
 were assembled at Mizpeh, the lords of the Philistines went up
 against Israel. And when the children of Israel heard [it],
 they were afraid of the Philistines.
7:8 And the children of Israel said to Samuel, Cease not to cry
 to the LORD our God for us, that he will save us from the hand
 of the Philistines.
7:9 And Samuel took a sucking lamb, and offered [it for] a
 burnt-offering wholly to the LORD: and Samuel cried to the LORD
 for Israel; and the LORD heard him.
7:10 And as Samuel was offering the burnt-offering, the
 Philistines drew near to battle against Israel: but the LORD
 thundered with a great thunder on that day upon the
 Philistines, and discomfited them; and they were smitten before
 Israel.
7:11 And the men of Israel went out of Mizpeh, and pursued the
 Philistines, and smote them, until [they came] under Beth-car.
7:12 Then Samuel took a stone, and set [it] between Mizpeh and
 Shen, and called the name of it Eben-ezer, saying, Hitherto
 hath the LORD helped us.
7:13 So the Philistines were subdued, and they came no more into
 the borders of Israel: and the hand of the LORD was against the
 Philistines all the days of Samuel.
7:14 And the cities which the Philistines had taken from Israel
 were restored to Israel, from Ekron even to Gath; and the
 borders of it did Israel deliver from the hands of the
 Philistines: and there was peace between Israel and the
 Amorites.
7:15 And Samuel judged Israel all the days of his life.
7:16 And he went from year to year in circuit to Beth-el, and
 Gilgal, and Mizpeh, and judged Israel in all those places.
7:17 And his return [was] to Ramah; for there [was] his house;
 and there he judged Israel; and there he built an altar to the
 LORD.
