1 Samuel 5:6-12 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
6 Now 1the hand of the LORD was heavy on the Ashdodites, and 2He ravaged them and smote them with 3tumors, both Ashdod and its territories. 7 When the men of Ashdod saw that it was so, they said, "The ark of the God of Israel must not remain with us, for His hand is severe on us and on Dagon our god." 8 So they sent and 4gathered all the lords of the Philistines to them and said, "What shall we do with the ark of the God of Israel?" And they said, "Let the ark of the God of Israel be brought around to Gath." And they brought the ark of the God of Israel around. 9 After they had brought it around, 5the hand of the LORD was against the city with very great confusion; and He smote the men of the city, both young and old, so that 6tumors broke out on them. 10 So they sent the ark of God to Ekron. And as the ark of God came to Ekron the Ekronites cried out, saying, "They have brought the ark of the God of Israel around to aus, to kill bus and cour people." 11 They 7sent therefore and gathered all the lords of the Philistines and said, "Send away the ark of the God of Israel, and let it return to its own place, so that it will not kill dus and eour people." For there was a deadly confusion throughout the city; 8the hand of God was very heavy there. 12 And the men who did not die were smitten with tumors and 9the cry of the city went up to heaven.
