ABOUT


"Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing" is a Christian hymn written by the 18th century pastor and hymnist Robert Robinson. Robert Robinson penned the words at age 22 in the year 1757. In the second verse we have the unusual words "Here I raise my Ebenezer..." Ebenezer isn't the name of a person, but a place about 4 miles south of Gilgal, actually a rock in this place. The name is a combination of two Hebrew words Eben and Ezer which mean "stone" and "help."We read in 1 Samuel 4:1-11 about a terrible battle in this place. The Philistines swept over the Israelites in battle, killing at least 30,000 soldiers and actually taking Israel's prize possession, the Ark of the Covenant. The Ark turns out to be much more than the Philistines are able to handle as God exudes His power from it. In Chapter 7, as the Philistines return it to the Israelites, God himself intervenes in the second battle at Ebenezer with His own thunder. The Israelites, thereby, gain a great victory and have the precious Ark returned to them.

The site wasn't named Ebenezer until after the Israelites finally defeated the Philistines, and took back the Ark of the Covenant. To commemorate the victorious battle, Samuel set up a marker-stone and named it "Stone of Help." The site became identified with the stone and with the place where God's miraculous help aided them in their victory over the Philistines. The stone, standing up-right, was called "Ebenezer," and the place eventually took on that name as well.
