What does Eben-Ezer mean in the Bible?

Dictionary

Easton's Bible Dictionary - Eben-Ezer
Stone of help, the memorial stone set up by Samuel to commemorate the divine assistance to Israel in their great battle against the Philistines, whom they totally routed (1 Samuel 7:7-12 ) at Aphek, in the neighbourhood of Mizpeh, in Benjamin, near the western entrance of the pass of Beth-horon. On this very battle-field, twenty years before, the Philistines routed the Israelites, "and slew of the army in the field about four thousand men" (4:1,2; here, and at 5:1, called "Eben-ezer" by anticipation). In this extremity the Israelites fetched the ark out of Shiloh and carried it into their camp. The Philistines a second time immediately attacked them, and smote them with a very great slaughter, "for there fell of Israel thirty thousand footmen. And the ark of God was taken" (1 Samuel 4:10 ). And now in the same place the Philistines are vanquished, and the memorial stone is erected by Samuel (q.v.). The spot where the stone was erected was somewhere "between Mizpeh and Shen." Some have identified it with the modern Beit Iksa, a conspicuous and prominent position, apparently answering all the necessary conditions; others with Dier Aban, 3 miles east of 'Ain Shems.

Eben-ezer (ĕb'en-ç'zer), stone of help. A stone set up by Samuel after a signal defeat of the Philistines, as a memorial of the "help" received from Jehovah. 1 Samuel 7:12. Its position is carefully defined as between Mizpeh and Shen.
Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Eben-Ezer
EBEN-EZER (‘the stone of help’ (LXX [1] ‘of the helper’]). 1. The scene of a disastrous battle in which the ark was lost ( 1 Samuel 4:1 ; 1 Samuel 5:1 ). 2. The name of the stone erected to commemorate an equally glorious victory ( 1 Samuel 7:12 ). The precise situation is uncertain, but if Shen ( 1 Samuel 7:12 ), i.e. Yeshana (according to LXX [1] and Syriac) is the modern ‘Ain Semije a little N. of Bethel, the locality is approximately defined. Samuel s explanatory words should be read thus: ‘This is a witness that Jahweh hath helped us.’
