1 Samuel

Chapter 4

  1. 1. And the word
    H1697
    of Samuel
    H8050
    came to all Israel.
    H3478
    Now Israel
    H3478
    went out
    H3318
    against
    H7125
    the Philistines
    H6430
    to battle,
    H4421
    and pitched
    H2583
    beside Ebenezer:
    H72
    and the Philistines
    H6430
    pitched
    H2583
    in Aphek.
    H663
  2. 2. And the Philistines
    H6430
    put themselves in array
    H6186
    against
    H7125
    Israel:
    H3478
    and when they joined
    H5203
    battle,
    H4421
    Israel
    H3478
    was smitten
    H5062
    before
    H6440
    the Philistines:
    H6430
    and they slew
    H5221
    of the army
    H4634
    in the field
    H7704
    about four
    H702
    thousand
    H505
    men.
    H376
  3. 3. And when the people
    H5971
    were come
    H935
    into the camp,
    H4264
    the elders
    H2205
    of Israel
    H3478
    said,
    H559
    Wherefore hath the LORD
    H3068
    smitten
    H5062
    us to day
    H3117
    before
    H6440
    the Philistines?
    H6430
    Let us fetch
    H3947
    the ark
    H727
    of the covenant
    H1285
    of the LORD
    H3068
    out of Shiloh
    H7887
    unto us, that, when it cometh
    H935
    among
    H7130
    us, it may save
    H3467
    us out of the hand
    H3709
    of our enemies.
    H341
  4. 4. So the people
    H5971
    sent
    H7971
    to Shiloh,
    H7887
    that they might bring
    H5375
    from thence the ark
    H727
    of the covenant
    H1285
    of the LORD
    H3068
    of hosts,
    H6635
    which dwelleth
    H3427
    between the cherubims:
    H3742
    and the two
    H8147
    sons
    H1121
    of Eli,
    H5941
    Hophni
    H2652
    and Phinehas,
    H6372
    were there with the ark
    H727
    of the covenant
    H1285
    of God.
    H430
  5. 5. And when the ark
    H727
    of the covenant
    H1285
    of the LORD
    H3068
    came
    H935
    into the camp,
    H4264
    all Israel
    H3478
    shouted
    H7321
    with a great
    H1419
    shout,
    H8643
    so that the earth
    H776
    rang again.
    H1949
  6. 6. And when the Philistines
    H6430
    heard
    H8085
    the noise
    H6963
    of the shout,
    H8643
    they said,
    H559
    What meaneth the noise
    H6963
    of this great
    H1419
    shout
    H8643
    in the camp
    H4264
    of the Hebrews?
    H5680
    And they understood
    H3045
    that the ark
    H727
    of the LORD
    H3068
    was come
    H935
    into the camp.
    H4264
  7. 7. And the Philistines
    H6430
    were afraid,
    H3372
    for they said,
    H559
    God
    H430
    is come
    H935
    into the camp.
    H4264
    And they said,
    H559
    Woe
    H188
    unto us! for there hath not been such a thing heretofore.
    H8032
    H865
  8. 8. Woe
    H188
    unto us! who shall deliver
    H5337
    us out of the hand
    H3027
    of these mighty
    H117
    Gods?
    H430
    these are the Gods
    H430
    that smote
    H5221
    the Egyptians
    H4714
    with all the plagues
    H4347
    in the wilderness.
    H4057
  9. 9. Be strong,
    H2388
    and quit
    H1961
    yourselves like men,
    H582
    O ye Philistines,
    H6430
    that ye be not servants
    H5647
    unto the Hebrews,
    H5680
    as they have been
    H5647
    to you: quit
    H1961
    yourselves like men,
    H582
    and fight.
    H3898
  10. 10. And the Philistines
    H6430
    fought,
    H3898
    and Israel
    H3478
    was smitten,
    H5062
    and they fled
    H5127
    every man
    H376
    into his tent:
    H168
    and there was a very
    H3966
    great
    H1419
    slaughter;
    H4347
    for there fell
    H5307
    of Israel
    H3478
    thirty
    H7970
    thousand
    H505
    footmen.
    H7273
  11. 11. And the ark
    H727
    of God
    H430
    was taken;
    H3947
    and the two
    H8147
    sons
    H1121
    of Eli,
    H5941
    Hophni
    H2652
    and Phinehas,
    H6372
    were slain.
    H4191
  12. 12. And there ran
    H7323
    a man
    H376
    of Benjamin
    H1144
    out of the army,
    H4634
    and came
    H935
    to Shiloh
    H7887
    the same day
    H3117
    with his clothes
    H4055
    rent,
    H7167
    and with earth
    H127
    upon his head.
    H7218
  13. 13. And when he came,
    H935
    lo, Eli
    H5941
    sat
    H3427
    upon a seat
    H3678
    by the wayside
    H3027
    H1870
    H3197
    watching:
    H6822
    for his heart
    H3820
    trembled
    H2730
    for the ark
    H727
    of God.
    H430
    And when the man
    H376
    came
    H935
    into the city,
    H5892
    and told
    H5046
    it, all the city
    H5892
    cried out.
    H2199
  14. 14. And when Eli
    H5941
    heard
    H8085
    the noise
    H6963
    of the crying,
    H6818
    he said,
    H559
    What meaneth the noise
    H6963
    of this tumult?
    H1995
    And the man
    H376
    came
    H935
    in hastily,
    H4116
    and told
    H5046
    Eli.
    H5941
  15. 15. Now Eli
    H5941
    was ninety
    H8673
    and eight
    H8083
    years
    H8141
    old;
    H1121
    and his eyes
    H5869
    were dim,
    H6965
    that he could
    H3201
    not see.
    H7200
  16. 16. And the man
    H376
    said
    H559
    unto Eli,
    H5941
    I am he that came
    H935
    out of the army,
    H4634
    and I fled
    H5127
    to day
    H3117
    out of the army.
    H4634
    And he said,
    H559
    What is there done,
    H1697
    my son?
    H1121
  17. 17. And the messenger
    H1319
    answered
    H6030
    and said,
    H559
    Israel
    H3478
    is fled
    H5127
    before
    H6440
    the Philistines,
    H6430
    and there hath been also a great
    H1419
    slaughter
    H4046
    among the people,
    H5971
    and thy two
    H8147
    sons
    H1121
    also, Hophni
    H2652
    and Phinehas,
    H6372
    are dead,
    H4191
    and the ark
    H727
    of God
    H430
    is taken.
    H3947
  18. 18. And it came to pass, when he made mention
    H2142
    of the ark
    H727
    of God,
    H430
    that he fell
    H5307
    from off the seat
    H3678
    backward
    H322
    by
    H1157
    the side
    H3027
    of the gate,
    H8179
    and his neck
    H4665
    brake,
    H7665
    and he died:
    H4191
    for he was an old
    H2204
    man,
    H376
    and heavy.
    H3513
    And he had judged
    H8199
    Israel
    H3478
    forty
    H705
    years.
    H8141
  19. 19. And his daughter in law,
    H3618
    Phinehas'
    H6372
    wife,
    H802
    was with child,
    H2030
    near to be delivered:
    H3205
    and when she heard
    H8085
    the tidings
    H8052
    that
    H413
    the ark
    H727
    of God
    H430
    was taken,
    H3947
    and that her father in law
    H2524
    and her husband
    H376
    were dead,
    H4191
    she bowed
    H3766
    herself and travailed;
    H3205
    for her pains
    H6735
    came
    H2015
    upon her.
  20. 20. And about the time
    H6256
    of her death
    H4191
    the women that stood
    H5324
    by her said
    H1696
    unto her, Fear
    H3372
    not; for thou hast born
    H3205
    a son.
    H1121
    But she answered
    H6030
    not, neither did she regard
    H7896
    H3820
    it.
  21. 21. And she named
    H7121
    the child
    H5288
    Ichabod,
    H350
    saying,
    H559
    The glory
    H3519
    is departed
    H1540
    from Israel:
    H3478
    because
    H413
    the ark
    H727
    of God
    H430
    was taken,
    H3947
    and because of her father in law
    H2524
    and her husband.
    H376
  22. 22. And she said,
    H559
    The glory
    H3519
    is departed
    H1540
    from Israel:
    H3478
    for the ark
    H727
    of God
    H430
    is taken.
    H3947
