Capture of the Ark Provokes God

1 Now the Philistines took the ark of God and 1brought it from Ebenezer to 2Ashdod. 2 Then the Philistines took the ark of God and brought it to 3the house of Dagon and set it by Dagon. 3 When the Ashdodites arose early the next morning, behold, 4Dagon had fallen on his face to the ground before the ark of the LORD. So they took Dagon and 5set him in his place again. 4 But when they arose early the next morning, behold, 6Dagon had fallen on his face to the ground before the ark of the LORD. And the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands were cut off on the threshold; aonly the trunk of Dagon was left to him. 5 Therefore neither the priests of Dagon nor all who enter Dagon's house 7tread on the threshold of Dagon in Ashdod to this day.
