1 Samuel 5:10-12
10 So they sent the ark of God to Ekron.
As the ark of God was entering Ekron, the people of Ekron cried out,
“They have brought the ark of the god of Israel around to us to kill us and our people.”
11 So they called together all the rulers of the Philistines and said,
“Send the ark of the god of Israel away; let it go back to its own place,
or it will kill us and our people.” For death had filled the city with panic;
God’s hand was very heavy upon it.
12 Those who did not die were afflicted with tumors,
and the outcry of the city went
up to heaven.
