 Revised Standard Version<< 1 Samuel:5 >>Biblia Hebraica (Stuttgartensia) | BHS (pdf - 3.5mb)  

1 When the Philistines captured the ark of God, they carried it from Ebene'zer to Ashdod; The Philistines & the Ark. 1Sm.5.1-7.2וּפְלִשְׁתִּים לָקְחוּ אֵת אֲרֹון הָאֱלֹהִים וַיְבִאֻהוּ מֵאֶבֶן הָעֵזֶר אַשְׁדֹּודָה׃
2 then the Philistines took the ark of God and brought it into the house of Dagon and set it up beside Dagon.  וַיִּקְחוּ פְלִשְׁתִּים אֶת־אֲרֹון הָאֱלֹהִים וַיָּבִיאוּ אֹתֹו בֵּית דָּגֹון וַיַּצִּיגוּ אֹתֹו אֵצֶל דָּגֹון׃
3 And when the people of Ashdod rose early the next day, behold, Dagon had fallen face downward on the ground before the ark of the LORD. So they took Dagon and put him back in his place.  וַיַּשְׁכִּמוּ אַשְׁדֹּודִים מִמָּחֳרָת וְהִנֵּה דָגֹון נֹפֵל לְפָנָיו אַרְצָה לִפְנֵי אֲרֹון יְהוָה וַיִּקְחוּ אֶת־דָּגֹון וַיָּשִׁבוּ אֹתֹו לִמְקֹומֹו׃
4 But when they rose early on the next morning, behold, Dagon had fallen face downward on the ground before the ark of the LORD, and the head of Dagon and both his hands were lying cut off upon the threshold; only the trunk of Dagon was left to him.  וַיַּשְׁכִּמוּ בַבֹּקֶר מִמָּחֳרָת וְהִנֵּה דָגֹון נֹפֵל לְפָנָיו אַרְצָה לִפְנֵי אֲרֹון יְהוָה וְרֹאשׁ דָּגֹון וּשְׁתֵּי כַּפֹּות יָדָיו כְּרֻתֹות אֶל־הַמִּפְתָּן רַק דָּגֹון נִשְׁאַר עָלָיו׃
5 This is why the priests of Dagon and all who enter the house of Dagon do not tread on the threshold of Dagon in Ashdod to this day.  עַל־כֵּן לֹא־יִדְרְכוּ כֹהֲנֵי דָגֹון וְכָל־הַבָּאִים בֵּית־דָּגֹון עַל־מִפְתַּן דָּגֹון בְּאַשְׁדֹּוד עַד הַיֹּום הַזֶּה׃ ס
6 The hand of the LORD was heavy upon the people of Ashdod, and he terrified and afflicted them with tumors, both Ashdod and its territory.  וַתִּכְבַּד יַד־יְהוָה אֶל־הָאַשְׁדֹּודִים וַיְשִׁםֵּם וַיַּךְ אֹתָם {כ= בָּעֳפָלִים} {ק= בַּטְּחֹרִים} אֶת־אַשְׁדֹּוד וְאֶת־גְּבוּלֶיהָ׃
7 And when the men of Ashdod saw how things were, they said, "The ark of the God of Israel must not remain with us; for his hand is heavy upon us and upon Dagon our god."  וַיִּרְאוּ אַנְשֵׁי־אַשְׁדֹּוד כִּי־כֵן וְאָמְרוּ לֹא־יֵשֵׁב אֲרֹון אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל עִמָּנוּ כִּי־קָשְׁתָה יָדֹו עָלֵינוּ וְעַל דָּגֹון אֱלֹהֵינוּ׃
8 So they sent and gathered together all the lords of the Philistines, and said, "What shall we do with the ark of the God of Israel?" They answered, "Let the ark of the God of Israel be brought around to Gath." So they brought the ark of the God of Israel there.  וַיִּשְׁלְחוּ וַיַּאַסְפוּ אֶת־כָּל־סַרְנֵי פְלִשְׁתִּים אֲלֵיהֶם וַיֹּאמְרוּ מַה־נַּעֲשֶׂה לַאֲרֹון אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל וַיֹּאמְרוּ גַּת יִסֹּב אֲרֹון אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל וַיַּסֵּבּוּ אֶת־אֲרֹון אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל׃ ס
9 But after they had brought it around, the hand of the LORD was against the city, causing a very great panic, and he afflicted the men of the city, both young and old, so that tumors broke out upon them.  וַיְהִי אַחֲרֵי הֵסַבּוּ אֹתֹו וַתְּהִי יַד־יְהוָה בָּעִיר מְהוּמָה גְּדֹולָה מְאֹד וַיַּךְ אֶת־אַנְשֵׁי הָעִיר מִקָּטֹן וְעַד־גָּדֹול וַיִּשָּׂתְרוּ לָהֶם {כ= עֳפָלִים} {ק= טְחֹרִים
10 So they sent the ark of God to Ekron. But when the ark of God came to Ekron, the people of Ekron cried out, "They have brought around to us the ark of the God of Israel to slay us and our people."  וַיְשַׁלְּחוּ אֶת־אֲרֹון הָאֱלֹהִים עֶקְרֹון וַיְהִי כְּבֹוא אֲרֹון הָאֱלֹהִים עֶקְרֹון וַיִּזְעֲקוּ הָעֶקְרֹנִים לֵאמֹר הֵסַבּוּ אֵלַי אֶת־אֲרֹון אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל לַהֲמִיתֵנִי וְאֶת־עַמִּי׃
11 They sent therefore and gathered together 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, that it may not slay us and our people." For there was a deathly panic throughout the whole city. The hand of God was very heavy there;  וַיִּשְׁלְחוּ וַיַּאַסְפוּ אֶת־כָּל־סַרְנֵי פְלִשְׁתִּים וַיֹּאמְרוּ שַׁלְּחוּ אֶת־אֲרֹון אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל וְיָשֹׁב לִמְקֹמֹו וְלֹא־יָמִית אֹתִי וְאֶת־עַמִּי כִּי־הָיְתָה מְהוּמַת־מָוֶת בְּכָל־הָעִיר כָּבְדָה מְאֹד יַד הָאֱלֹהִים שָׁם׃
12 the men who did not die were stricken with tumors, and the cry of the city went up to heaven.  וְהָאֲנָשִׁים אֲשֶׁר לֹא־מֵתוּ הֻכּוּ {כ= בָּעֳפָלִים} {ק= בַּטְּחֹרִים} וַתַּעַל שַׁוְעַת הָעִיר הַשָּׁמָיִם׃
