1 Les gens de Kirjath-Jearim vinrent, et firent monter l'arche de l'Eternel; ils la conduisirent dans la maison d'Abinadab, sur la colline, et ils consacrèrent son fils Eléazar pour garder l'arche de l'Eternel.

2 Il s'était passé bien du temps depuis le jourl'arche avait été déposée à Kirjath-Jearim. Vingt années s'étaient écoulées. Alors toute la maison d'Israël poussa des gémissements vers l'Eternel.

3 Samuel dit à toute la maison d'Israël: Si c'est de tout votre coeur que vous revenez à l'Eternel, ôtez du milieu de vous les dieux étrangers et les Astartés, dirigez votre coeur vers l'Eternel, et servez-le lui seul; et il vous délivrera de la main des Philistins.

4 Et les enfants d'Israël ôtèrent du milieu d'eux les Baals et les Astartés, et ils servirent l'Eternel seul.

5 Samuel dit: Assemblez tout Israël à Mitspa, et je prierai l'Eternel pour vous.

6 Et ils s'assemblèrent à Mitspa. Ils puisèrent de l'eau et la répandirent devant l'Eternel, et ils jeûnèrent ce jour-là, en disant: Nous avons péché contre l'Eternel! Samuel jugea les enfants d'Israël à Mitspa.

7 Les Philistins apprirent que les enfants d'Israël s'étaient assemblés à Mitspa, et les princes des Philistins montèrent contre Israël. A cette nouvelle, les enfants d'Israël eurent peur des Philistins,

8 et ils dirent à Samuel: Ne cesse point de crier pour nous à l'Eternel, notre Dieu, afin qu'il nous sauve de la main des Philistins.

9 Samuel prit un agneau de lait, et l'offrit tout entier en holocauste à l'Eternel. Il cria à l'Eternel pour Israël, et l'Eternel l'exauça.

10 Pendant que Samuel offrait l'holocauste, les Philistins s'approchèrent pour attaquer Israël. L'Eternel fit retentir en ce jour son tonnerre sur les Philistins, et les mit en déroute. Ils furent battus devant Israël.

11 Les hommes d'Israël sortirent de Mitspa, poursuivirent les Philistins, et les battirent jusqu'au-dessous de Beth-Car.

12 Samuel prit une pierre, qu'il plaça entre Mitspa et Schen, et il l'appela du nom d'Eben-Ezer, en disant: Jusqu'ici l'Eternel nous a secourus.

13 Ainsi les Philistins furent humiliés, et ils ne vinrent plus sur le territoire d'Israël. La main de l'Eternel fut contre les Philistins pendant toute la vie de Samuel.

14 Les villes que les Philistins avaient prises sur Israël retournèrent à Israël, depuis Ekron jusqu'à Gath, avec leur territoire; Israël les arracha de la main des Philistins. Et il y eut paix entre Israël et les Amoréens.

15 Samuel fut juge en Israël pendant toute sa vie.

16 Il allait chaque année faire le tour de Béthel, de Guilgal et de Mitspa, et il jugeait Israël dans tous ces lieux.

17 Puis il revenait à Rama, où était sa maison; et là il jugeait Israël, et il y bâtit un autel à l'Eternel.

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.
