Peace Comes To Israel

11 And the men of Israel went forth out of Mizpah, and pursued the Philistines, - and smote them as far as under Beth-car. 12 And Samuel took a certain stone, and set it between Mizpah and Yeshanah, and called the name thereof Eben-ezer, - and said, Hitherto, hath Yahweh helped us. 13 So the Philistines were subdued, and, no more, came within the boundary of Israel, - and the hand of Yahweh was against the Philistines, all the days of Samuel.
