Quick Reference

The Israelites were defeated and the Ark captured by the Philistines at Ebenezer (1 Sam. 4: 1–11 and 5: 1) but Samuel later named a stone Ebenezer when the area was recovered (1 Sam. 7: 2–12). The word means Stone of Help, and as such has often been absorbed into Christian culture, especially in Wales.
