SA1 6:8 And take the ark of the LORD, and lay it upon the cart; and put
the jewels of gold, which ye return him for a trespass offering, in a
coffer by the side thereof; and send it away, that it may go.
SA1 6:9 And see, if it goeth up by the way of his own coast to
Bethshemesh, then he hath done us this great evil: but if not, then we
shall know that it is not his hand that smote us: it was a chance that
happened to us.
SA1 6:10 And the men did so; and took two milch kine, and tied them to
the cart, and shut up their calves at home:
SA1 6:11 And they laid the ark of the LORD upon the cart, and the
coffer with the mice of gold and the images of their emerods.
