The Shiloh Promise Helps Believer’s Depression!

The site of ancient Shiloh, a city in the Ephraim hill-country and the religious capital of Israel in the time of the Judges,

is situated north of Beth-El, east of the Beth El-Shechem highway and south of Lebonah in the hill-country of Ephraim (Judges 21:19). It has been identified with Khirbet Seilun by E. Robinson in 1838.

Shiloh is mentioned in the Hebrew Bible as an assembly place for the people of Israel where there was a san-ctuary containing the Ark of the Covenant until it was taken by the Philistines from the battlefield at Aphek .

At Shiloh, the “whole congregation of Israel assembled…and set up the tabernacle of the congregation…”, (Joshua 18:1) being the tent built under Moses’ dir-ection to house the ark.

According to Talmudic sources, the Tabernacle rested at Shiloh for 369 years.

(Zev-achim 118B). At some point during its long stay at Shiloh, the portable tent seems to have been enclosed within a compound or replaced with a standing struc-ture with “doors” (1 Samuel 3:15) a precursor to the Temple.

Shiloh was the center of Israelite worship and govern-ment.

The people assembled here for the mandatory feasts and sacrifices, and here lots were cast for the various tribal areas and for the Levitical cities.

After Joshua had passed from the scene, some inhospi-table men in Gibeah raped the concubine of a Levite man when the couple was passing through on their way home to Mount Ephraim. The outraged Levite sent a provocative message to all the tribes demanding justice, and the people responded. The leaders of Benjamin refused to turn over the perpetrators so the other tribes went to war and killed every man, woman, and child of Benjamin save for 600 young men who had holed up at the Rock Rimmon. When their blood cooled, the people repented of having nearly wiped out an entire tribe, and set about finding wives for the surviving men so as to perpetuate the tribe. All who had participated in the killing rampage had sworn to never again allow their daughters to marry Benjamites.

They took 400 virgins from that (Levite) city, but still had 200 bachelors on their hands. They were advised to kidnap wives for themselves from a religious celebration in Shiloh when the daughters of the city went out to dance in the vineyards (see Judges 21). No doubt the fathers and daughters were well aware of what would happen; the rulers promised to intercede on behalf of the bach-elors if any of the fathers complained. It was a way to get around their vow not to let the daughters marry Benjamites.

Generations later, Samuel was raised at the shrine in Shiloh by the high priest Eli. Samuel began prophesying at a young age and continued to serve in the Taber-nacle, but not as a priest because, though he was a Lev-ite, he was not from the family of Aaron.

When the Philistines defeated the Israelites at Aphek, one contingent of Philistines carried the Ark of the Covenant off to Philistia, while another contingent apparently marched on Shiloh and destroyed the shrine (1 Samuel 4, Psalms 78:60 and Jeremiah 7:4). Appar-ently the Tabernacle was removed before the Philistines arrived, and it was shipped to Gibeon, where it remained until Solomon’s time. The Ark was soon returned to Israel, but was subsequently kept in Kiryat-Yearim until David had it brought to Jerusalem. It never returned to Shiloh.

When Solomon died, ten of the tribes seceded, and their religious leaders built local worship sites. At this time, Shiloh was probably revived as a holy shrine; it was home to Ahijah HaShiloni, who announced the secession of the ten tribes after Solomon died (1 Kings 14:6-16).


Genesis 49:8-10 – Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies; thy father’s children shall bow down before thee.

[9] Judah is a lion’s whelp: from the prey, my son, thou art gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up? [10] The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.

Answering The Atheist

March 7, 2004 / Volume 4, Issue 10


God prophesied that Israel would have a king (Deuteronomy 17:14-20), and that their Messiah would come from the lineage of the king (Genesis 49:8-10). Why then was God opposed to Israel’s desire to have a king (1 Samuel 8:7; 12:17-19)? Is there a contradiction?


The wording of Deuteronomy 17 does not indicate that it was God’s desire for Israel to have a king.

The prophecy foretells Israel’s desire for a king (v 14) and presents God’s “solution” to their impulse; namely, that if they were to have a king, it would be one of His choosing (v 15). In Deuteronomy 28:15-68, God foretold various curses and plagues which would befall the nation Israel. Shall we conclude that God delighted in bring such curses on Israel, simply because He foretold them?

Does the prophecy of Genesis 49:8-10 necessitate a monarchy in Israel of the descendents of Judah? No. The prophecy reveals that the Messiah (Shiloh) would come through Judah, and that Judah would exercise authority over his brethren in some fashion, but it did not require a monarchy to be fulfilled.

Recall, Joseph received dreams wherein his brothers bowed before him (Genesis 37:6-11). These were fulfilled without Joseph reigning over them as a king.

In like manner, Genesis 49:8-10 could have been fulfilled without Judah’s descendants being kings. In fact, had it not been for Saul’s sin, God would have established the monarchy in Benjamin (1 Sam 13:13) forever, requiring a fulfillment of Genesis 49:8-10 by some other means.

God elected to fulfill Genesis 49:8-10 through giving the monarchy foretold in Deuteronomy to Judah, following the sins of Saul. He could have fulfilled it in another way, but chose to create a monarchy through Judah. That does not justify Israel in their call for a king. It was still sinful. God used what they intended for evil to fulfill His own purpose. Remember, Joseph declared of his brother’s actions against him, “…you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good…” (Genesis 50:20). God used their wicked deed to fulfill His own purpose. Though God worked through their deeds to accomplish good, their actions were still sinful. Again, God used the evil deeds of those who tried and crucified the Lord to accomplish His own will (Ac 2:23). Were they justified in killing Jesus? Certainly not! Their actions were sinful.

There is no contradiction.

Ezekiel 37:24-28 – And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them. [25] And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children’s children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever.

Shiloh, Israel’s Capital for 400 Years, Being Uncovered

by Gil Ronen

July 30, 2010

As Israel’s enemies attempt to deny the nation’s connection to its homeland, archaeologists keep digging at the facts.

In Shiloh, north of Beit El, excavations are currently being carried out under the auspices of the Archaeological Staff Officer for Judea and Samaria in the IDF Civilian Administration Antiquities Unit and the Binyamin local authority.

Shiloh was where the Holy Sanctuary – precursor to the Holy Temple – stood for about 400 years during the era of the Judges. It is first mentioned in the Book of Joshua, which also states that the Holy Sanctuary was built there.

In the Book of Samuel, Shiloh is mentioned as a religious center, where Elkana and his family go to give sacrifices to G-d. During that pilgrimage, Elkana’s wife, Hana, asks G-d to give her a son – and eventually gives birth to Samuel the Prophet.

Shiloh is believed by researchers to have fallen into ruin after the Israelites’ unsuccessful war with the Philistines, in which the enemy took the Holy Ark captive. The Ark was soon returned to Israel, but was never brought back to Shiloh. Instead, it was taken to Kiryat Yearim until King David had it delivered to Jerusalem.

Archaeological findings indicate that a Jewish presence continued at Shiloh until the year 722 BCE, when the Kingdom of Israel was defeated by Assyria. According to the Book of Judges and the Mishna, unwed Jewish women traditionally went to the vineyards of Shiloh to dance on Tu B’Av.

Matthew 23:37-39 – O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! [38] Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. [39] For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

the Lord their God from that day and forward. [23] And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword. [24] According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them. [25] Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name; [26] After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid. [27] When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies’ lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations; [28] Then shall they know that I am the Lord their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there. [29] Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith

the Lord God.

Genesis 49:10 – The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.

Luke 21:26-28 – Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. [27] And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. [28] And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Hebrews 12:12,13 – Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees; [13] And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed.
