CEB 1 After the Philistines took God's chest, they brought it from Ebenezer to Ashdod. NIV 1 After the Philistines had captured the ark of God, they took it from Ebenezer to Ashdod. CEB 2 Then the Philistines took God's chest and brought it into Dagon's temple and set it next to Dagon. NIV 2 Then they carried the ark into Dagon’s temple and set it beside Dagon. CEB 3 But when the citizens of Ashdod got up early the next morning, there was Dagon, fallen facedown on the ground before the LORD's chest! So they took Dagon and set him back up where he belonged. NIV 3 When the people of Ashdod rose early the next day, there was Dagon, fallen on his face on the ground before the ark of the LORD! They took Dagon and put him back in his place. CEB 4 But when they got up early the next morning, there was Dagon again, fallen facedown on the ground before the LORD's chest—and this time Dagon's head along with both his hands were cut off and lying on the doorstep! Only Dagon's body was left intact. NIV 4 But the following morning when they rose, there was Dagon, fallen on his face on the ground before the ark of the LORD! His head and hands had been broken off and were lying on the threshold; only his body remained. CEB 5 That's why to this day Dagon's priests or anyone else who enters his temple in Ashdod doesn't step on the threshold. NIV 5 That is why to this day neither the priests of Dagon nor any others who enter Dagon’s temple at Ashdod step on the threshold.
