/* Chapter 21 */
|Thus they made a covenant at Beer-sheba: then Abimelech rose up, and Phichol the chief captain of his host, and they returned into the land of the Philistines.
|In that manner they made a covenant at Beer-sheba. Then Abimelech got up, along with Phichol his commander-in-chief, and they returned to the country of the [[Philistines]].
|This reference to Philistine country is likely an anachronism introduced by [[Moses]]. The proper name of the country at the time is Gerar, not Philistia. The Philistines would not arrive in this country for several centuries more.
