1 Samuel 7:12-13

Context

7:12 Samuel took a stone and placed it between Mizpah and Shen. 1  He named it Ebenezer, 2  saying, “Up to here the Lord has helped us.” 7:13 So the Philistines were defeated; they did not invade Israel again. The hand of the Lord was against the Philistines all the days of Samuel.

1 tn Cf. NAB, NRSV, NLT “Jeshanah.”

2 sn The name Ebenezer (אֶבֶן הָעָזֶר) means “stone of help” in Hebrew (cf. TEV); NLT adds the meaning parenthetically after the name.
