{1 Samuel 15:12} And when Samuel 8050 rose early 7925 z8686 to meet 7125 z8800 Saul 7586 in the morning, 1242 it was told 5046 z8714 Samuel, 8050 saying, 559 z8800 Saul 7586 came 935 z8804 to Carmel, 3760 and, behold, x2009 he set him up 5324 z8688 a place, 3027 and is gone about, 5437 z8735 and passed on, 5674 z8799 and gone down 3381 z8799 to Gilgal. 1537
Carmel:
"And [there was] a man in Maon, whose possessions [were] in Carmel; and the man [was] very great, and he had three thousand sheep, and a thousand goats: and he was shearing his sheep in Carmel." {1Sm 25:2} + "Maon, Carmel, and Ziph, and Juttah," {Jsh 15:55} + "So Ahab went up to eat and to drink. And Elijah went up to the top of Carmel; and he cast himself down upon the earth, and put his face between his knees," {1Kg 18:42}
he set him:
"Then Samuel took a stone, and set [it] between Mizpeh and Shen, and called the name of it Ebenezer, saying, Hitherto hath the LORD helped us." {1Sm 7:12} + "And the children of Israel did so as Joshua commanded, and took up twelve stones out of the midst of Jordan, as the LORD spake unto Joshua, according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel, and carried them over with them unto the place where they lodged, and laid them down there. ... And Joshua set up twelve stones in the midst of Jordan, in the place where the feet of the priests which bare the ark of the covenant stood: and they are there unto this day." {Jsh 4:8-9} + "Now Absalom in his lifetime had taken and reared up for himself a pillar, which [is] in the king's dale: for he said, I have no son to keep my name in remembrance: and he called the pillar after his own name: and it is called unto this day, Absalom's place." {2Sm 18:18}
a place:
Yad, Literally as the LXX render χειρα, a hand; probably because the trophy or monument of victory was in the shape of a large hand, the emblem of power, erected on a pillar. These memorial pillars were anciently much in use; and the figure of a hand, by its emblematical meaning, was well adapted to preserve the remembrance of a victory. Niebuhr, speaking of the Mesjed Ali, or Mosque of Ali, says that, "at the top of the dome, where one generally sees on the Turkish mosques a crescent, or only a pole, there is here a hand stretched out, to represent that of Ali." Another writer informs us, that at the Alhamra, or red palace of the Moorish kings in Grenada, "on the key-stone of the outward arch [of the present principal entrance] is sculptured the figure of an arm, the symbol of strength and dominion."
