Offerings to the LORD - 1st Samuel 7

1 Samuel 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 in the hill, and sanctified Eleazar his son to keep  the ark of the LORD. 

1 Samuel 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.  

1 Samuel 7:3 And Samuel spake unto all the house of Israel,  saying, If ye do return unto the LORD with all your hearts,  then put away the strange gods and Ashtaroth from among  you, and prepare your hearts unto the LORD, and serve him  only: and he will deliver you out of the hand of the  Philistines. 

1 Samuel 7:4 Then the children of Israel did put away  Baalim and Ashtaroth, and served the LORD only. 

1 Samuel 7:5  And Samuel said, Gather all Israel to Mizpeh, and I will  pray for you unto the LORD. 

1 Samuel 7:6 And they gathered  together to Mizpeh, and drew water, and poured it out  before the LORD, and fasted on that day, and said there, We  have sinned against the LORD. And Samuel judged the  children of Israel in Mizpeh. 

1 Samuel 7:7 And when the Philistines  heard that the children of Israel were gathered together to  Mizpeh, the lords of the Philistines went up against Israel.  And when the children of Israel heard it, they were afraid  of the Philistines. 

1 Samuel 7:8 And the children of Israel said to  Samuel, Cease not to cry unto the LORD our God for us,  that he will save us out of the hand of the Philistines.  

1st Samuel
1 Samuel 7:9 And Samuel took a sucking lamb, and offered it  for a burnt offering wholly unto the LORD: and Samuel  cried unto the LORD for Israel; and the LORD heard him.  

1 Samuel 7:10 And as Samuel was offering up 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. 

1 Samuel 7:11 And the men of Israel went out of  Mizpeh, and pursued the Philistines, and smote them, until  they came under Beth-car. 

1 Samuel 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.   

1 Samuel 7:13 So the Philistines were subdued, and they came no  more into the coast of Israel: and the hand of the LORD was  against the Philistines all the days of Samuel. 

1 Samuel 7:14 And  the cities which the Philistines had taken from Israel were  restored to Israel, from Ekron even unto Gath; and the  coasts thereof did Israel deliver out of the hands of the  Philistines. And there was peace between Israel and the  Amorites. 

1 Samuel 7:15 And Samuel judged Israel all the days of  his life. 

1 Samuel 7:16 And he went from year to year in circuit to  Bethel, and Gilgal, and Mizpeh, and judged Israel in all  those places. 

1 Samuel 7:17 And his return was to Ramah; for  there was his house; and there he judged Israel; and there  he built an altar unto the LORD.  KJV
