Philistines, and said, Send away the ark of the God of Israel, and let
it go again to his own place, that it slay us not, and our people: for
there was a deadly destruction throughout all the city; the hand of God
was very heavy there.
SA1 5:12 And the men that died not were smitten with the emerods: and
the cry of the city went up to heaven.
SA1 6:1 And the ark of the LORD was in the country of the Philistines
SA1 6:2 And the Philistines called for the priests and the diviners,
saying, What shall we do to the ark of the LORD? tell us wherewith we
shall send it to his place.
