7:3 ¶ And Samuel spake unto all the house of Israel, saying, If, with all your heart, ye are returning unto Yahweh, then put away the gods of the foreigner out of your midst, and the Ashtorethsand firmly set your heart towards Yahweh, and serve him, alone, that he may deliver you out of the hand of the Philistines.
