1 Samuel 7:2-4 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

Israel Admits It Has Sinned

A long time passed after the ark came to stay at Kiriath Jearim. For 20 years the entire nation of Israel mournfully sought the Lord.

Samuel told the entire nation of Israel, “If you are returning to the Lord wholeheartedly, get rid of the foreign gods you have, including the statues of the goddess Astarte. Make a commitment to the Lord, and serve only him. Then he will rescue you from the Philistines.”

So the Israelites got rid of the statues of Baal and Astarte and served only the Lord.
