1 Y vinieron los de Quiriat-jearim, y llevaron el arca del SEÑOR, y la metieron en casa de Abinadab, en Gabaa; y santificaron a Eleazar su hijo, para que guardase el arca del SEÑOR.

2 Y aconteció que desde el día que llegó el arca a Quiriat-jearim pasaron mucho días, veinte años; y toda la casa de Israel se lamentaba en pos del SEÑOR.

3 Y habló Samuel a toda la casa de Israel, diciendo: Si de todo vuestro corazón os volvéis al SEÑOR, quitad los dioses ajenos y a Astarot de entre vosotros, y preparad vuestro corazón al SEÑOR, y servid a él sólo, y él os librará de mano de los filisteos.

4 Entonces los hijos de Israel quitaron a los baales y a Astarot, y sirvieron sólo al SEÑOR.

5 Y Samuel dijo: Juntad a todo Israel en Mizpa, y yo oraré por vosotros al SEÑOR.

6 Y juntándose en Mizpa, sacaron agua, y la derramaron delante del SEÑOR, y ayunaron aquel día, y dijeron allí: Contra el SEÑOR hemos pecado. Y juzgó Samuel a los hijos de Israel en Mizpa.

7 Y oyendo los filisteos que los hijos de Israel estaban reunidos en Mizpa, subieron los príncipes de los filisteos contra Israel. Lo cual cuando oyeron los hijos de Israel, tuvieron temor de los filisteos.

8 Y dijeron los hijos de Israel a Samuel: No ceses de clamar por nosotros al SEÑOR nuestro Dios, que nos guarde de mano de los filisteos.

9 Y Samuel tomó un cordero de leche, y lo sacrificó entero al SEÑOR en holocausto; y clamó Samuel al SEÑOR por Israel, y el SEÑOR le oyó.

10 Y aconteció que estando Samuel sacrificando el holocausto, los filisteos llegaron para pelear con los hijos de Israel. Mas el SEÑOR tronó aquel día con gran estruendo sobre los filisteos, y los quebrantó, y fueron vencidos delante de Israel.

11 Y saliendo los hijos de Israel de Mizpa, siguieron a los filisteos, hiriéndolos hasta abajo de Bet-car.

12 Tomó luego Samuel una piedra, y la puso entre Mizpa y Sen, y le puso por nombre Eben-ezer, diciendo: Hasta aquí nos ayudó el SEÑOR.

13 Fueron, pues , los filisteos humillados, que no vinieron más al término de Israel; y la mano del SEÑOR fue contra los filisteos todo el tiempo de Samuel.

14 Y fueron restituidas a los hijos de Israel las ciudades que los filisteos habían tomado a los israelitas, desde Ecrón hasta Gat, con sus términos; e Israel las libró de mano de los filisteos. Y hubo paz entre Israel y el amorreo.

15 Y juzgó Samuel a Israel todo el tiempo que vivió.

16 Y todos los años iba y daba vuelta a Bet-el, y a Gilgal, y a Mizpa, y juzgaba a Israel en todos estos lugares.

17 Volvía después a Ramá, porque allí estaba su casa, y allí también juzgaba a Israel; y edificó allí un altar al SEÑOR.

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.
