1 Samuel 7:8-10

Context
7:8 The Israelites said to Samuel, “Keep 1  crying out to the Lord our 2  God so that he may save us 3  from the hand of the Philistines!” 7:9 So Samuel took a nursing lamb 4  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. 5  But on that day the Lord thundered loudly against the Philistines. He caused them to panic, and they were defeated by 6  Israel.
