Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(I. Samuel, iv:4.)--'So the people sent to Shiloh, that they might bring from thence the ark of the covenant of the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth between the cherubim; and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were there with the ark of the covenant of God.' Shiloh is called the place of rest. In Judges, xxi:19, it is said that Shiloh is 'on the north side of Bethel, on the east side of the highway that goeth up from Bethel to Shechem, and on the south of Lebonah.' So the traveler now going north from Jerusalem stops the first night just a little way south of Shiloh. Shiloh was one of the most sacred of the Hebrew sanctuaries. The ark of the covenant was kept at Shiloh from the last days of Joshua to the time of Samuel. The ungodly conduct of the sons of Eli occaisoned the loss of the ark of the covenant which had been carried into battle against the Philistines." See 5187BAI/LVi105CAJS (Voyager # 358945)
