Psalm 105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
At this time when the book of psalms was written the Israelites use to put the lamp os their feet in order to keep the hands ready to fight while holding the Sword and a shield while they are entering caves.
Discovered in the Shiloh area South Of Shechem (north of Jerusalem)Tel Shiloh is a place of significant beginnings for the Jewish People, and even without grand palaces or powerful walls, it is one of the most dramatic sites in the country.
There in the territory of the tribe of Ephraim, the children of Israel brought the Tabernacle (Josh. 18:1). making Shiloh a religious center for the Israelites even before Jerusalem.
The path to the mound has a beautiful view of the valley where one of the most colorful stories in the Bible took place – the summer grape-harvest festival when the daughters of Shiloh came out dancing and the men of Benjamin sought brides from among them (Judges 21:15-23).
