1 Tada dođoše ljudi iz Kirjat Jearima i odnesoše Kovčeg Jahvin sebi. Unesoše ga u kuću Abinadabovu, na uzvišici, i posvetiše njegova sina Eleazara da čuva Kovčeg Jahvin.

2 Od dana kad je Kovčeg bio postavljen u Kirjat Jearimu, prođe mnogo vremena - dvadeset godina - i sav je dom Izraelov uzdisao za Jahvom.

3 Tada Samuel progovori svemu domu Izraelovu ovako: "Ako se od svega srca svoga vraćate Jahvi, uklonite iz svoje sredine tuđe bogove, baale i aštarte, i upravite srce svoje Jahvi i njemu jedinome služite. Tada će vas on izbaviti iz ruke Filistejaca."

4 Sinovi Izraelovi ukloniše nato baale i aštarte i služahu jedinome Jahvi.

5 Samuel tada zapovjedi: "Skupite sve sinove Izraelove u Mispu da se pomolim Jahvi za vas."

6 Oni se dakle skupiše u Mispi; ondje su grabili vodu i izlijevali je pred Jahvom. I postili su onaj dan i priznavali: "Sagriješili smo Jahvi!" I Samuel je sudio sinovima Izraelovim u Mispi.

7 Kad su Filistejci čuli da su se sinovi Izraelovi skupili u Mispi, krenu filistejski knezovi da napadnu na Izraela. Kad to vidješe sinovi Izraelovi, uplašiše se Filistejaca.

8 I zamoliše sinovi Izraelovi Samuela: "Ne prestaj vapiti za nas Jahvi, Bogu našemu, da nas izbavi iz ruke Filistejaca."

9 Samuel uze jedno janje sisanče i prinese ga Jahvi kao žrtvu paljenicu i glasno se pomoli Jahvi za Izraela, i Jahve ga usliša.

10 Dok je Samuel prinosio žrtvu paljenicu, Filistejci su došli da udare na Izraela, ali Jahve toga dana zagrmi silnom grmljavinom na Filistejce i tako ih prestraši i smete da su podlegli Izraelu.

11 Ratnici izraelski iziđoše iz Mispe i potjeraše Filistejce, tukući ih sve do ispod Bet Kara.

12 A Samuel uze jedan kamen i postavi ga između Mispe i Ješane i nazva ga imenom Eben Haezer govoreći: "Dovde nam je Jahve pomogao."

13 Tako su Filistejci bili poniženi i nikada više ne navališe na zemlju Izraelovu, a ruka je Jahvina pritiskivala Filistejce svega vijeka Samuelova.

14 I gradove koje Filistejci bijahu zauzeli od Izraela vratiše se njemu, od Ekrona do Gata, i Izrael oslobodi njihovo područje iz ruke filistejske. I bio je mir između Izraela i Amorejaca.

15 Samuel je bio sudac u Izraelu svega svoga vijeka.

16 Svake je godine obilazio Betel, Gilgal i Mispu i u svim je tim mjestima sudio Izraelu.

17 Zatim se vraćao u Ramu, jer je ondje imao svoju kuću i ondje je sudio Izraelu. Ondje je podigao i žrtvenik Jahvi.

Exploring the Meaning of 1_Samuel 7      

Here we find a broad-brush description of the life of Samuel, the last Judge of Israel, and the reality of the Israelitish world that he presided over. After the Philistines returned the Ark of the Covenant, it was taken to the city of Kirjath Jearim. Samuel commanded the people of Israel to rid themselves of their idols and worship of foreign gods, and return to worshiping the Lord. Chief among these idols was Baal. Baal was understood and worshiped in a variety of ways, most notably as the male god of fertility. Ashtoreth was the female equivalent.

The Children of Israel, like the nations around them, were polytheists at that time. They needed to be regularly convinced that Jehovah, the Lord, was the chief and most powerful God. A belief in only One God, who we now know as the Lord God Jesus Christ, was beyond them at that time. (see Arcana Coelestia 8301)

The people of Israel were called together by Samuel at Mizpah, where he judged them. The Philistines learned of this gathering and once again set out to make war with them. The Israelites made an offering to the Lord, and He responded to their cry by allowing them to push the Philistines back and reclaim cities that the Philistines had taken in previous conflicts.

Other similar skirmishes took place throughout Samuel’s life. There was an ongoing struggle between the Children and Israel, and the surrounding peoples. It represents the struggle we have between good and evil -- between the truths of the one God, Jehovah, and the Ten Commandments, and between the false, but popular, loves of self and the world.

Swedenborgian teachings describe how, in the earliest times of spiritual awareness in humanity, people knew that there was only one God, who was their Divine Creator and Redeemer. However, as people fell away from true faith, their worship degenerated and gradually became the worship of idolatry and multiple gods. In True Christian Religion 159, this is described as a form of insanity.
