Context Readings

The Ark Of The Covenant Among The Philistines

4 And when they got up early on the morning after, Dagon had come down to the earth on his face before the ark of the Lord; and his head and his hands were broken off on the doorstep; only the base was in its place. 5 So to this day no priest of Dagon, or any who come into Dagon's house, will put his foot on the doorstep of the house of Dagon in Ashdod. 6 But the hand of the Lord was hard on the people of Ashdod and he sent disease on them through all the country of Ashdod.
