And the wordH1697 of SamuelH8050 cameH1961 to allH3605 Israel.H3478 Now IsraelH3478 wentH3318 out againstH7125 the PhilistinesH6430 to battle,H4421 and pitchedH2583 besideH5921 Ebenezer:H72 and the PhilistinesH6430 pitchedH2583 in Aphek.H663
And the PhilistinesH6430 put themselves in arrayH6186 againstH7125 Israel:H3478 and when they joinedH5203 battle,H4421 IsraelH3478 was smittenH5062 beforeH6440 the Philistines:H6430 and they slewH5221 of the armyH4634 in the fieldH7704 about fourH702 thousandH505 men.H376
And when the peopleH5971 were comeH935 intoH413 the camp,H4264 the eldersH2205 of IsraelH3478 said,H559 WhyH4100 has the LORDH3068 smittenH5062 us to dayH3117 beforeH6440 the Philistines?H6430 Let us fetchH3947 the arkH727 of the covenantH1285 of the LORDH3068 out of ShilohH7887 to us, that, when it comesH935 amongH7130 us, it may saveH3467 us out of the handH3709 of our enemies.H341
So the peopleH5971 sentH7971 to Shiloh,H7887 that they might bringH5375 from thereH8033 the arkH727 of the covenantH1285 of the LORDH3068 of hosts,H6635 which dwellsH3427 between the cherubim:H3742 and the twoH8147 sonsH1121 of Eli,H5941 HophniH2652 and Phinehas,H6372 were thereH8033 with the arkH727 of the covenantH1285 of God.H430
And when the arkH727 of the covenantH1285 of the LORDH3068 cameH935 intoH413 the camp,H4264 allH3605 IsraelH3478 shoutedH7321 with a greatH1419 shout,H8643 so that the earthH776 rangH1949 again.
And when the PhilistinesH6430 heardH8085 the noiseH6963 of the shout,H8643 they said,H559 WhatH4100 means the noiseH6963 of thisH2063 greatH1419 shoutH8643 in the campH4264 of the Hebrews?H5680 And they understoodH3045 that the arkH727 of the LORDH3068 was comeH935 intoH413 the camp.H4264
And the PhilistinesH6430 were afraid,H3372 for they said,H559 GodH430 is comeH935 intoH413 the camp.H4264 And they said,H559 WoeH188 to us! for there has not beenH1961 suchH2063 a thing heretofore.H865
WoeH188 to us! whoH4310 shall deliverH5337 us out of the handH3027 of theseH428 mightyH117 Gods?H430 theseH428 are the GodsH430 that smoteH5221 the EgyptiansH4714 with allH3605 the plaguesH4347 in the wilderness.H4057
Be strong H2388and quitH1961 yourselves like men,H582 O you Philistines,H6430 that you be not servantsH5647 to the Hebrews,H5680 as they have been to you: quit yourselves like men,H582 and fight.H3898
And the PhilistinesH6430 fought,H3898 and IsraelH3478 was smitten,H5062 and they fledH5127 every manH376 into his tent:H168 and there was a veryH3966 greatH1419 slaughter;H4347 for there fellH5307 of IsraelH3478 thirtyH7970 thousandH505 footmen.H7273
And the arkH727 of GodH430 was taken;H3947 and the twoH8147 sonsH1121 of Eli,H5941 HophniH2652 and Phinehas,H6372 were slain.H4191
And there ranH7323 a manH376 of BenjaminH1144 out of the army,H4634 and cameH935 to ShilohH7887 the sameH1931 dayH3117 with his clothesH4055 rent,H7167 and with earthH127 on his head.H7218
And when he came,H935 see,H2009 EliH5941 satH3427 on a seatH3678 by the waysideH3197 H1870 watching:H6822 for his heartH3820 trembledH2730 for the arkH727 of God.H430 And when the manH376 cameH935 into the city,H5892 and toldH5046 it, allH3605 the cityH5892 criedH2199 out.
And when EliH5941 heardH8085 the noiseH6963 of the crying,H6818 he said,H559 WhatH4100 means the noiseH6963 of thisH2088 tumult?H1995 And the manH376 cameH935 in hastily,H4116 and toldH5046 Eli.H5941
Now EliH5941 was ninetyH8673 and eightH8083 yearsH8141 old;H1121 and his eyesH5869 were dim,H6965 that he couldH3201 not see.H7200
And the manH376 saidH559 to Eli,H5941 I am he that cameH935 out of the army,H4634 and I fledH5127 to dayH3117 out of the army.H4634 And he said,H559 WhatH4100 is there done,H1697 my son?H1121
And the messengerH1319 answeredH6030 and said,H559 IsraelH3478 is fledH5127 beforeH6440 the Philistines,H6430 and there has beenH1961 alsoH1571 a greatH1419 slaughterH4046 among the people,H5971 and your twoH8147 sonsH1121 also,H1571 HophniH2652 and Phinehas,H6372 are dead,H4191 and the arkH727 of GodH430 is taken.H3947
And it cameH1961 to pass, when he made mentionH2142 of the arkH727 of God,H430 that he fellH5307 from offH5921 the seatH3678 backwardH322 by the sideH3027 of the gate,H8179 and his neckH4665 broke,H7665 and he died:H4191 for he was an oldH2204 man,H376 and heavy.H3513 And he had judgedH8199 IsraelH3478 fortyH705 years.H8141
And his daughterH3618 in law,H3618 Phinehas'H6372 wife,H802 was with child,H2030 near to be delivered:H3205 and when she heardH8085 the tidingsH8052 that the arkH727 of GodH430 was taken,H3947 and that her fatherH2524 in lawH2524 and her husbandH376 were dead,H4191 she bowedH3766 herself and travailed;H3205 for her painsH6735 cameH2015 on her.
And about the timeH6256 of her deathH4191 the women that stoodH5324 by her saidH1696 to her, FearH3372 not; for you have bornH3205 a son.H1121 But she answeredH6030 not, neitherH3808 did she regardH3820 it.
And she namedH7121 the childH5288 Ichabod,H350 saying,H559 The gloryH3519 is departedH1540 from Israel:H3478 becauseH413 the arkH727 of GodH430 was taken,H3947 and becauseH413 of her fatherH2524 in lawH2524 and her husband.H376
And she said,H559 The gloryH3519 is departedH1540 from Israel:H3478 for the arkH727 of GodH430 is taken.H3947
