And the PhilistinesH6430 tookH3947 the arkH727 of God,H430 and broughtH935 it from EbenezerH72 to Ashdod.H795
When the PhilistinesH6430 tookH3947 the arkH727 of God,H430 they broughtH935 it into the houseH1004 of Dagon,H1712 and setH3322 it by Dagon.H1712
And when they of AshdodH795 aroseH7925 earlyH7925 on the morrow,H4283 behold,H2009 DagonH1712 was fallenH5307 on his faceH6440 to the earthH776 beforeH6440 the arkH727 of the LORD.H3068 And they tookH3947 Dagon,H1712 and setH7725 him in his placeH4725 again.H7725
And when they aroseH7925 earlyH7925 on the morrowH4283 morning,H1242 behold,H2009 DagonH1712 was fallenH5307 on his faceH6440 to the groundH776 beforeH6440 the ark of the LORD;H3068 and the headH7218 of DagonH1712 and bothH8147 the palmsH3709 of his handsH3027 were cutH3772 off on the threshold;H4670 onlyH7535 the stump of DagonH1712 was leftH7604 to him.
ThereforeH5921 H3651 neitherH3808 the priestsH3548 of Dagon,H1712 nor anyH3605 that comeH935 into Dagon'sH1712 house,H1004 treadH1869 onH5921 the thresholdH4670 of DagonH1712 in AshdodH795 to thisH2088 day.H3117
But the handH3027 of the LORDH3068 was heavyH3513 on them of Ashdod,H795 and he destroyedH8074 them, and smoteH5221 them with tumors,H6076 evenH853 AshdodH795 and the coastsH1366 thereof.
And when the menH582 of AshdodH795 sawH7200 that it was so,H3651 they said,H559 The arkH727 of the GodH430 of IsraelH3478 shall not abideH3427 with us: for his handH3027 is soreH7185 on us, and on DagonH1712 our god.H430
They sentH7971 therefore and gatheredH622 allH3605 the lordsH5633 of the PhilistinesH6430 to them, and said,H559 WhatH4100 shall we doH6213 with the arkH727 of the GodH430 of Israel?H3478 And they answered,H559 Let the arkH727 of the GodH430 of IsraelH3478 be carriedH5437 aboutH5437 to Gath.H1661 And they carriedH5437 the arkH727 of the GodH430 of IsraelH3478 aboutH5437 thither.
And it was so, that, afterH310 they had carriedH5437 it about,H5437 the handH3027 of the LORDH3068 was against the cityH5892 with a veryH3966 greatH1419 destruction:H4103 and he smoteH5221 the menH582 of the city,H5892 both smallH6996 and great,H1419 and they had tumorsH6076 in their secretH8368 parts.
Therefore they sentH7971 the arkH727 of GodH430 to Ekron.H6138 And it cameH1961 to pass, as the arkH727 of GodH430 cameH935 to Ekron,H6138 that the EkronitesH6139 criedH2199 out, saying,H559 They have broughtH5437 aboutH5437 the arkH727 of the GodH430 of IsraelH3478 to us, to slayH4191 us and our people.H5971
So they sentH7971 and gatheredH622 together allH3605 the lordsH5633 of the Philistines,H6430 and said,H559 SendH7971 away the arkH727 of the GodH430 of Israel,H3478 and let it goH7725 againH7725 to his own place,H4725 that it slayH4191 us not, and our people:H5971 for there was a deadlyH4194 destructionH4103 throughout allH3605 the city;H5892 the handH3027 of GodH430 was veryH3966 heavyH3513 there.
And the menH582 that diedH4191 not were smittenH5221 with the tumors:H6076 and the cryH7775 of the cityH5892 wentH5927 up to heaven.H8064
