1 Samuel 7:9-12

Context
7:9 So Samuel took a nursing lamb 1  and offered it as a whole burnt offering to the Lord. Samuel cried out to the Lord on Israel’s behalf, and the Lord answered him.

7:10 As Samuel was offering burnt offerings, the Philistines approached to do battle with Israel. 2  But on that day the Lord thundered loudly against the Philistines. He caused them to panic, and they were defeated by 3  Israel. 7:11 Then the men of Israel left Mizpah and chased the Philistines, striking them down all the way to an area below Beth Car.

7:12 Samuel took a stone and placed it between Mizpah and Shen. 4  He named it Ebenezer, 5  saying, “Up to here the Lord has helped us.”

1 tn Heb “a lamb of milk”; NAB “an unweaned lamb”; NIV “a suckling lamb”; NCV “a baby lamb.”

2 tn Heb “approached for battle against Israel.”
