174. Were the Philistines subdued all the days of Samuel?
So the Philistines were subdued, and they came no more into the coast of Israel:
and the hand of the LORD was against the Philistines all the days of Samuel. 1 Samuel 7:13
And the Philistines gathered themselves together to fight with Israel, thirty thousand chariots,
and six thousand horsemen, and people as the sand which is on the sea shore in multitude: and they came up,
and pitched in Michmash, eastward from Bethaven. ... And it came to pass,
that as soon as he had made an end of offering the burnt offering, behold, Samuel came. 1 Samuel 13:5-10
