1 Samuel 4:1-11

And the word
<01697>
of Samuel
<08050>
came to all Israel
<03478>_.
Now Israel
<03478>
went out
<03318> (8799)
against
<07125> (8800)
the Philistines
<06430>
to battle
<04421>_,
and pitched
<02583> (8799)
beside Ebenezer
<072>_:
and the Philistines
<06430>
pitched
<02583> (8804)
in Aphek
<0663>_.
{came: or, came to pass}
And the Philistines
<06430>
put themselves in array
<06186> (8799)
against
<07125> (8800)
Israel
<03478>_:
and when they joined
<05203> (8799)
battle
<04421>_,
Israel
<03478>
was smitten
<05062> (8735)
before
<06440>
the Philistines
<06430>_:
and they slew
<05221> (8686)
of the army
<04634>
in the field
<07704>
about four
<0702>
thousand
<0505>
men
<0376>_.
{they joined...: Heb. the battle was spread} {army: Heb. array}
And when the people
<05971>
were come
<0935> (8799)
into the camp
<04264>_,
the elders
<02205>
of Israel
<03478>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Wherefore hath the LORD
<03068>
smitten
<05062> (8804)
us to day
<03117>
before
<06440>
the Philistines
<06430>_?
Let us fetch
<03947> (8799)
the ark
<0727>
of the covenant
<01285>
of the LORD
<03068>
out of Shiloh
<07887>
unto us, that, when it cometh
<0935> (8799)
among
<07130>
us, it may save
<03467> (8686)
us out of the hand
<03709>
of our enemies
<0341> (8802)_.
{fetch: Heb. take unto us}
So the people
<05971>
sent
<07971> (8799)
to Shiloh
<07887>_,
that they might bring
<05375> (8799)
from thence the ark
<0727>
of the covenant
<01285>
of the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
which dwelleth
<03427> (8802)
[between] the cherubims
<03742>_:
and the two
<08147>
sons
<01121>
of Eli
<05941>_,
Hophni
<02652>
and Phinehas
<06372>_,
[were] there with the ark
<0727>
of the covenant
<01285>
of God
<0430>_.
And when the ark
<0727>
of the covenant
<01285>
of the LORD
<03068>
came
<0935> (8800)
into the camp
<04264>_,
all Israel
<03478>
shouted
<07321> (8686)
with a great
<01419>
shout
<08643>_,
so that the earth
<0776>
rang again
<01949> (8735)_.
And when the Philistines
<06430>
heard
<08085> (8799)
the noise
<06963>
of the shout
<08643>_,
they said
<0559> (8799)_,
What [meaneth] the noise
<06963>
of this great
<01419>
shout
<08643>
in the camp
<04264>
of the Hebrews
<05680>_?
And they understood
<03045> (8799)
that the ark
<0727>
of the LORD
<03068>
was come
<0935> (8804)
into the camp
<04264>_.
And the Philistines
<06430>
were afraid
<03372> (8799)_,
for they said
<0559> (8804)_,
God
<0430>
is come
<0935> (8804)
into the camp
<04264>_.
And they said
<0559> (8799)_,
Woe
<0188>
unto us! for there hath not been such a thing heretofore
<0865> <08032>_.
{heretofore: Heb. yesterday, or, the third day}
Woe
<0188>
unto us! who shall deliver
<05337> (8686)
us out of the hand
<03027>
of these mighty
<0117>
Gods
<0430>_?
these [are] the Gods
<0430>
that smote
<05221> (8688)
the Egyptians
<04714>
with all the plagues
<04347>
in the wilderness
<04057>_.
Be strong
<02388> (8690)_,
and quit
<01961> (8798)
yourselves like men
<0582>_,
O ye Philistines
<06430>_,
that ye be not servants
<05647> (8799)
unto the Hebrews
<05680>_,
as they have been
<05647> (8804)
to you: quit
<01961> (8804)
yourselves like men
<0582>_,
and fight
<03898> (8738)_.
{quit...: Heb. be men}
And the Philistines
<06430>
fought
<03898> (8735)_,
and Israel
<03478>
was smitten
<05062> (8735)_,
and they fled
<05127> (8799)
every man
<0376>
into his tent
<0168>_:
and there was a very
<03966>
great
<01419>
slaughter
<04347>_;
for there fell
<05307> (8799)
of Israel
<03478>
thirty
<07970>
thousand
<0505>
footmen
<07273>_.
And the ark
<0727>
of God
<0430>
was taken
<03947> (8738)_;
and the two
<08147>
sons
<01121>
of Eli
<05941>_,
Hophni
<02652>
and Phinehas
<06372>_,
were slain
<04191> (8804)_.
{were slain: Heb. died}
