The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Ebenezer
A well known name and I believe, often used by the Lord's people, after the example of Samuel, upon numberless occasions in life. If the reader will consult 1 Samuel 7:1-17 he will be enabled to enter into the Spirit of the expression, if so be the Lord be his teacher. And should the Lord give him also a right view of the subject, he will discover that the mercy was not confined to the days of Samuel, but in all ages of the church, the faithful can, and do, find causes daily to set up their Ebenezers, "to the praise of the glory of his grace, who maketh them accepted in the Beloved." Even in the moment of writing do I find cause to set up the Ebenezer of the morning, "hitherto hath the Lord helped!" And, reader, what a sweet additional thought is it, in the full assurance of faith, to refresh the soul, that he who hath hitherto helped, and doth help, will help, through grace, in life, and in glory, to all eternity. I only add, under this article, that there is a great strength of expression in the word Ebenezer. It is a compound meaning Eben, or Aben, a stone, JEHOVAH laid in Zion, in whom whosoever believeth, shall never be confounded? (Compare Isaiah 28:16 with 1 Peter 2:6-8)

Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary - Ebenezer
the name of that field wherein the Israelites were defeated by the Philistines, when the ark of the Lord was taken, 1 Samuel 4:1 ; also a memorial stone set up by Samuel to commemorate a victory over the Philistines. The word signifies the stone of help; and it was erected by the prophet, saying, "Hitherto the Lord hath helped us."

American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Ebenezer
Stone of help, the place where Samuel erected a monument, in grateful remembrance of the divine help, given in answer to prayer, in a great battle with the Philistines. The same place had before witnessed the defeat of Israel and the capture of the ark, 1 Samuel 4:1 ; 5:1 ; 7:5-12 .

Morrish Bible Dictionary - Ebenezer
A stone thus called, signifying 'stone of help,' set up by Samuel, after obtaining victory over the Philistines, as a memorial of the help received from God. 1 Samuel 4:1 ; 1 Samuel 5:1 ; 1 Samuel 7:12 . It would appear in the texts as if the stone had had the name prior to Samuel's thus designating it; but this may be accounted for by the whole account having been written after the stone was so named. The word has become symbolical for the expression "Hitherto hath the Lord helped us."
