Correct spelling:
shiloh
Definition:
generally understood as denoting the Messiah, " the peaceful one," as the word signifies ( Genesis 49:10 ). The Vulgate Version translates the word, " he who is to be sent," in allusion to the Messiah; the Revised Version, margin, " till he come to Shiloh;" and the LXX., " until that which is his shall come to Shiloh." It is most simple and natural to render the expression, as in the Authorized Version, " till Shiloh come," interpreting it as a proper name ( Compare Isaiah 9:6 ). Shiloh, a place of rest, a city of Ephraim, " on the north side of Bethel," from which it is distant 10 miles ( Judges 21:19 ); the modern Seilun ( the Arabic for Shiloh), a " mass of shapeless ruins." Here the tabernacle was set up after the Conquest ( Joshua 18:1-10 ), where it remained during all the period of the judges till the ark fell into the hands of the Philistines. " No spot in Central Palestine could be more secluded than this early sanctuary, nothing more featureless than the landscape around; so featureless, indeed, the landscape and so secluded the spot that from the time of St. Jerome till its re-discovery by Dr. Robinson in 1838 the very site was forgotten and unknown." It is referred to by ( Jeremiah 7:12 Jeremiah 7:14 ; 26:4-9 ) five hundred years after its destruction.
