Philistines

The Philistines were an ancient tribe, or group of tribes, that fought from time to time with the Israelites, particularly during the time of King Saul and, to a lesser degree, King David. The Philistines are mentioned three times in the Book of Mormon, in each case as part of Nephi’s inclusion of the writings of Isaiah: 2 Ne. 12:6; 2 Ne. 19:12; and 2 Ne. 21:14).
