Its vegetation and abundant supply of water must have rendered it a fitting place for the annual gatherings of the people of Israel. The name of Shiloh was probably derived from a Hebrew word signifying " to rest." To no place would such a name be more appropriate; for here the tabernacle of the Lord, which had accompanied the children of Israel during their long wanderings in the desert, found its final resting- place; and here the Lord Himself dwelt in His holy place, and rested among His people, until at length their long-continued wickedness disturbed that peace that God had given them. |
