The Ark among the Philistines

1Καὶ ἀλλόφυλοι ἔλαβον τὴν κιβωτὸν τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ εἰσήνεγκαν αὐτὴν ἐξ Ἀβεννὴρ εἰς Ἄζωτον. 2καὶ ἔλαβον ἀλλόφυλοι τὴν κιβωτὸν Κυρίου καὶ εἰσήνεγκαν αὐτὴν εἰς οἶκον Δαγών, καὶ παρέστησαν αὐτὴν παρὰ Δαγών. 3καὶ ὤρθρισαν οἱ Ἀζώτιοι καὶ εἰσῆλθον εἰς οἶκον Δαγών, καὶ εἶδον καὶ ἰδοὺ Δαγὼν πεπτωκὼς ἐπὶ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ ἐνώπιον κιβωτοῦ τοῦ θεοῦ· καὶ ἤγειραν τὸν Δαγὼν καὶ κατέστησαν εἰς τὸν τόπον αὐτοῦ. καὶ ἐβαρύνθη χεὶρ Κυρίου ἐπὶ τοὺς Ἀζωτίους καὶ ἐβασάνισεν αὐτούς, καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτοὺς εἰς τὰς ἕδρας αὐτῶν, τὴν Ἄζωτον καὶ τὰ ὅρια αὐτῆς. 4καὶ ἐγένετο ὅτε ὤρθρισαν τὸ πρωί, καὶ ἰδοὺ Δαγὼν πεπτωκὼς ἐπὶ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ ἐνώπιον κιβωτοῦ διαθήκης Κυρίου· καὶ κεφαλὴ Δαγὼν καὶ ἀμφότερα τὰ ἴχνη χειρῶν αὐτοῦ ἀφῃρημένα ἐπὶ τὰ ἐμπρόσθια ἁμαφὲθ ἕκαστοι, καὶ ἀμφότεροι οἱ καρποὶ τῶν χειρῶν αὐτοῦ πεπτωκότες ἐπὶ τὸ πρόθυρον, πλὴν ἡ ῥάχις Δαγὼν ὑπελείφθη. 5διὰ τοῦτο οὐκ ἐπιβαίνουσιν οἱ ἱερεῖς Δαγὼν καὶ πᾶς ὁ εἰσπορευόμενος εἰς οἶκον Δαγὼν ἐπὶ βαθμὸν οἴκου Δαγὼν ἐν Ἀζώτῳ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης, ὅτι ὑπερβαίνοντες ὑπερβαίνουσιν.

6καὶ ἐβαρύνθη χεὶρ Κυρίου ἐπὶ Ἄζωτον καὶ ἐπήγαγεν αὐτοῖς, καὶ ἐξέζεσεν αὐτοῖς εἰς τὰς ναῦς, καὶ μέσον τῆς χώρας αὐτῆς ἀνεφύησαν μύες· καὶ ἐγένετο σύνχυσις θανὰτου μεγάλη ἐν τῇ πόλει. 7καὶ εἶδον οἱ ἄνδρες Ἀζώτου ὅτι οὕτως, καὶ λέγουσιν ὅτι Οὐ καθήσεται κιβωτὸς τοῦ θεοῦ μεθ᾽ ἡμῶν, ὅτι σκληρὰ χεὶρ αὐτοῦ ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς καὶ ἐπὶ Δαγὼν θεὸν ἡμῶν. 8καὶ ἀποστέλλουσιν καὶ συνάγουσιν τοὺς σατράπας τῶν ἀλλοφύλων πρὸς αὐτοὺς καὶ λέγουσιν Τί ποιήσωμεν κιβωτῷ θεοῦ Ἰσραήλ; καὶ λέγουσιν οἱ Γεθθαῖοι Μετελθέτω κιβωτὸς τοῦ θεοῦ πρὸς ἡμᾶς· καὶ μετῆλθεν κιβωτὸς τοῦ θεοῦ εἰς Γέθθα. 9καὶ ἐγενήθη μετὰ τὸ μετελθεῖν αὐτὴν καὶ γίνεται χεὶρ Κυρίου τῇ πόλει, τάραχος μέγας σφόδρα· καὶ ἐπάταξεν τοὺς ἄνδρας τῆς πόλεως ἀπὸ μικροῦ ἕως μεγάλου, καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτοὺς εἰς τὰς ἕδρας αὐτῶν. καὶ ἐποίησαν ἑαυτοῖς οἱ Γεθθαῖοι ἕδρας, 10καὶ ἐξαποστέλλουσιν τὴν κιβωτὸν τοῦ θεοῦ εἰς Ἀσκάλωνα. καὶ ἐγενήθη ὡς εἰσῆλθεν κιβωτὸς θεοῦ εἰς Ἀσκάλωνα, καὶ ἐβόησαν οἱ Ἀσκαλωνεῖται λέγοντες Τί ἀπεστρέψατε πρὸς ἡμᾶς τὴν κιβωτὸν τοῦ θεοῦ Ἰσραήλ, θανατῶσαι ἡμᾶς καὶ τὸν λαὸν ἡμῶν; 11καὶ ἐξαποστέλλουσιν καὶ συνάγουσιν τοὺς σατράπας τῶν ἀλλοφύλων καὶ εἶπον Ἐξαποστείλατε τὴν κιβωτὸν τοῦ θεοῦ Ἰσραήλ, καὶ καθισάτω εἰς τὸν τόπον αὐτῆς, καὶ οὐ μὴ θανατώσῃ ἡμᾶς καὶ τὸν λαὸν ἡμῶν· ὅτι ἐγενήθη σύγχυσις ἐν ὅλῃ τῇ πόλει βαρεῖα σφόδρα, ὡς εἰσῆλθεν κιβωτὸς θεοῦ Ἰσραὴλ ἐκεῖ. 12καὶ οἱ ζῶντες καὶ οὐκ ἀποθανόντες ἐπλήγησαν εἰς τὰς ἕδρας· καὶ ἀνέβη ἡ κραυγὴ τῆς πόλεως εἰς τὸν οὐρανόν.
