ABOUT this time it was that the Philistines made war against the
Israelites, and pitched their camp at the city Aphek. Now when the Israelites
had expected them a little while, the very next day they joined battle,
and the Philistines were conquerors, and slew above four thousand of the
Hebrews, and pursued the rest of their multitude to their camp.
