Verses 1-12

1 Samuel 5:2 When the Philistines took the ark of God, they brought it into the house of Dagon, and set it by Dagon.

1 Samuel 5:2 Comments - Israel also kept similar objects they had taken from their enemies within the Tabernacle. For example, Goliath’s sword was kept there (1 Samuel 21:9).

1 Samuel 21:9, “And the priest said, The sword of Goliath the Philistine, whom thou slewest in the valley of Elah, behold, it is here wrapped in a cloth behind the ephod: if thou wilt take that, take it: for there is no other save that here. And David said, There is none like that; give it me.”
