Map of Shiloh
Bible map of Shiloh. Israel decided to plant their worship center in Shiloh after they settled in the Promised Land, which is now Israel and Occupied Palestinian Territories. When Eli was priest of Israel, Philistines routed Israel’s army, stole the Ark of the Covenant and probably destroyed Shiloh’s worship facilities. Bible scholars make that presumption because the battle, Eli and his two sons were dead and Bible writers never mentioned people worshiping at Shiloh it again. The story of the battle is reported in 1 Samuel 4.
