6 and Ark of LORD was in the country of Philistines for Seven months. 2 and Philistines call for priests and diviners, saying, What should we do to the Ark of LORD? Tell us wherewith we shall send it to his place. 3 and They say, If ye send away the Ark of God of Israel, send it not empty; but in any wise return Him trespass offering: Then ye shall be heal, and it shall be know to you why His hand is not removed from you. 4 Then say What should be trespass offering which we shall return to Him? They answer, Five golden emerods, and Five golden mice, according to the number of lords of the Philistines: for one plague was on you all, and on your lords. 5 Wherefore ye shall make images of your emerods, and images of your mice that mar land; and ye shall give glory unto God of Israel: peradventure He will lighten His hand from off you, and from off your Gods, and from off your land. 6 Wherefore then do ye harden your hearts, as Egyptians and Pharaoh hardened their hearts? When he had worked wonderfully among them, do they not let people go, and they depart? 7 Now therefore make a new cart, and take two milch kine, on which there hath come no yoke, and tie kine to the cart, and bring their calves home from them: 8 and take Ark of LORD, and lay it upon the cart; and put jewels of gold, which ye return Him for trespass offering, in coffer by side thereof; and send It away, that It may go. 9 and see, If it goeth up by way of His own coast to Bethshemesh, Then He hath do us this Great evil: but If not, then we shall know that it is not His hand that smote us: It was chance that happened to us. 10 and men do so; and take two milch kine, and tie them to a cart, and shut up their calves at home: 11 and they lay the Ark of LORD upon the cart, and coffer with mice of gold and images of their emerods. 12 and kine take a straight route to way of Bethshemesh, and go along the highway, laughing as they go, and turn not aside to right hand or to leave; and lords of Philistines go after them unto border of Bethshemesh. 13 and they of Bethshemesh were reaping their wheat harvest in the valley: and they lifted up their eyes, and saw the Ark, and rejoiced to see it. 14 and a cart came into the field of Joshua, Bethshemite, and stood there, where there was a great stone: and they clave wood of cart, and offered kine burnt offering unto LORD.

Continuing our Chapter summaries, Chapter 6 of first Samuel begins with the Philistines calling in their diviners and priests to counsel on what they should do with the ark of God. Ark of Covenant stays in the country of Philistine for seven months, as plagues begin to land upon them. They were counsel on what to do; send God of Israel trespass offering of five golden emerods and mice, according to the plague that was on them and their lords. They were reminded not to harden their hearts, as Pharaoh did in Egypt. If they didnt, they would also be destroy. They do as they were counsel. Levites meet them and take ark of the Lord and make sacrifices to the Lord on the same day. Each of five lords of Philistines return home, Ashdod, Gaza, Ashkelon, Gath, and Ekron. The Saga didnt end for the men of Beth-shemesh as many of them begin to look into the ark of the Lord.
8 When Samuel becomes old, he makes his sons Judges over Israel. The name of his firstborn son was Joel, and the name of his second, Abijah; They were Judges in Beersheba. 3 Yet his sons do not walk in his way, but turn aside after gain. T They take bribes and perverted justice. 4 Then all the elders of Israel gather together and come to Samuel at p Ramah 5 and say to Him, Behold, You are old and your sons do not walk in your way You now appoint us King to judge us like all nations. 6 But things displease Samuel when they say, Give us King to Judge us. And Samuel prayed to L ord. 7 and L ord says to Samuel, Obey voice of people in all that they say to you, v for they have not rejected you, But they have rejected me from being King over them. 8 According to all the deeds that they have done from the day I bring them up out of Egypt even to this day, forsaking Me and serving other Gods, so they are also doing to you. 9 Now Then, obey their voice; only you shall solemnly warn them x and show them the ways of the King who shall reign over them.
When Elkanah took his wives and their families to Shiloh to offer sacrifices, peace offering was make. After fat, kidneys, and other parts are burn, priest customarily receives the breast and right shoulder. The rest of the sacrificial animal was given back to the offerer to be eat in a special feast. For his part, Elkanah gave portions of meat to his family. Hannah receives either more than others or else more choice portion because of Elkanahas love for her. Peninnah, other wife, was constantly striving to irritate and vex her, to make her fret iato make her discontent with her lot, because the Lord had denied her children. AAs whole family go up to Shiloh for annual festivals, Peninnah had both sons and daughters to accompany her, but Hannah had none; and Peninnah took this opportunity particularly to twit Hannah with her barrenness, by making an ostentatious exhibition of her children. AShe was greatly distress, because it was a great reproach to women among Jews to be barren; because, say some, every one hopped that Messiah should spring from her line. In the ancient Middle East, it was customary for certain officials to place stools or seats in the courtyard or near the gate of the city where they could sit in judgment, hearing cases or complaints. These seats usually had no backs and were placed near wall or post to provide backrest. This circumstance would explain why Eli was sitting near the post. It was probably on such backless seat that Eli was sitting when he heard news of the death of his sons and fell over backwards, killing Himself. Hannahas Covenant with Lord That, If she were Give child, Ano Razora would come upon His head seem to promise to raise Samuel as Nazarite, one under special vow to God never to cut His hair. Samuel is great contrast to Samson, former keeping his Nazarite vows throughout life, becoming a powerful man of God, and the later violating all his vows, becoming a wretched example of failure to serve God. Takes place very late among Israelites. According to, Hebrew mothers were in the habit of suckling their children for three years. When weaning had taken place, Hannah would bring her son up to sanctuary, to appear before the face of the Lord, and remain there forever, ie his whole life long. Levites are generally only required to perform service at sanctuary from their twenty-fifth to their fiftieth year; But Samuel was to be present to the Lord immediately after His weaning had taken place, and to remain at sanctuary forever, ie to belong entirely to the Lord. To this end, He was to receive His training at sanctuary, that at the very earliest waking up of His Spiritual susceptibilities He might receive impressions of the sacred presence of God.
1 Samuel 6: 1 and ark of LORD was in the country of the Philistines for seven months. Ver. 1. And ark of LORD was in the country.] Heb., In the field of Philistines: whence some have think, that being plague for it while in their houses, they set it in open fields, and were thereupon plagued with mice and moles, that turned up their fields and devoured their grain. Seven months.] Not four months only, as Josephus, falsely. It was a long while for God's people to be without that visible pawn of His presence and glory; so that they might seem to be as forlorn and forsaken of Him. Such misery may befall any people, to be bereft of God's ordinances; or any soul, to be for time without sense of His gracious presence and the light of His countenance. But God hath promise to His to be little sanctuary unto them, and not to leave them, or if He does so, yet not to forsake them, provide that they look upon all other comforts as so many Ichabods, till He returns unto them in mercy and lovingkindness.
