Poole's Outline of 1 Samuel 6



The Philistines consult with the priests how they shall return the ark: they advise to send with it for a trespass-offering five golden emerods and mice, on a new cart which they do: the kine tied to the cart, go straightway to Beth-shemesh; which was for a sign to the Philistines, 1-12. They of Beth-shemesh rejoice: the Levites offer sacrifice for it, 13-15. The people are smitten for looking into the ark; and request them of Kirjath-jearim to fetch it thence into their own city, 19-21.
