shen ( ההשׁן , ha - shēn , "the tooth" or "peak"; τῆς παλαιᾶς , tḗs palaiás ): A place named only in 1 Samuel 7:12 to indicate the position of the stone set up by Samuel in connection with the victory over the Philistines, "between Mizpah and Shen." The Septuagint evidently reads yāshān , "old." Probably we should here read yeshānāh , as in 2 Chronicles 13:19 (OHL, under the word). Then it may be represented by ‛Ain Sı̄nia , to the North of Beitı̄n .
