Caption SHILOH. when the rest of the Israelites had destroyed all the Benjamites except six hundred, and these wanted wives lest the tribe should become extinct, advantage was taken of the gathering of the people at the annual feast of the Lord, and the children of Benjamin lay in wait in the vineyards, and seized " the daughters of Shiloh, who came out to dance, and carried away two hundred of them to be their wives " (Judges xxi.). It was here, too, that Hannah, " in bitterness of soul, prayed unto the Lord," that she might have a son; and when Samuel was born, "she brought him unto the house of the Lord in Shiloh, and the child did minister unto the Lord before Eli the priest" (1 Samuel i. 24, ii. 11). The tabernacle and the ark remained here until the close of Eli's life, a period of about 300 years ; and it was not until the ungodly conduct of Eli's sons had occasioned the loss of the ark of the covenant, which had been carried into battle against the Philistines, that Shiloh sank into insignificance. Its glory then departed; and it was afterwards held up by the prophet Jeremiah as an example of the vengeance of God upon the wicked. " Go ye now unto My place which was in Shiloh, where I set My name at the first, and see what I did to it for the wickedness of My people Israel " (Jeremiah vii. 12). After the death of Eli, only one incident is mentioned in the Bible connected with the history of Shiloh which is worthy of notice. It Avas here that the prophet Ahijah lived, to whom Jeroboam sent his wife in disguise, that she might inquire of him what should become of his child, who had fallen sick. But when Jeroboam's wife, laden with presents, arrived at the house of Ahijah, although he could not see her by reason of his age, the Lord made known to him the reason of her coming, and he at once addressed her by name, and declared to her the destruction of the house of Jeroboam, in consequence of Ms great wickedness (1 Kings xiv. 1—16). The selection of Shiloh as the sanctuary where the tabernacle was to be established, may partly have arisen from its secluded position; so quiet a spot was well adapted both for the performance of the acts of worship which the Jewish law required, and also for religious study. But its central situation was, perhaps, a point of still greater importance: it was within easy reach of all the tribes, and the annual festivals must have seen large assemblies gathered together from every point.
