1 La kesto de la Eternulo estis en la lando de la Filisxtoj dum sep monatoj.

2 Kaj la Filisxtoj vokis la pastrojn kaj la auxguristojn, kaj diris:Kion ni faru kun la kesto de la Eternulo? sciigu al ni, kiamaniere ni resendu gxin sur gxian lokon.

3 Kaj tiuj diris:Se vi volas resendi la keston de la Dio de Izrael, ne resendu gxin sen donacoj, sed repagu al Li prokulpan oferon; tiam vi resanigxos, kaj ekscios, kial ne forigxas de vi Lia mano.

4 Kaj ili diris:Kian prokulpan oferon ni repagu al Li? Kaj tiuj diris:Laux la nombro de la estroj de la Filisxtoj kvin orajn tuberojn kaj kvin orajn musojn; cxar la sama frapo trafis vin cxiujn kaj viajn estrojn.

5 Faru bildojn de viaj tuberoj kaj bildojn de viaj musoj, kiuj ruinigis la landon, kaj faru honoron al la Dio de Izrael; tiam Li eble malplipezigos Sian manon sur vi kaj sur viaj dioj kaj sur via lando.

6 Kial vi obstinigus vian koron, kiel obstinigis sian koron Faraono kaj la Egiptoj? kiam Li montris sur ili Sian forton, ili ja forliberigis ilin, ke ili iru.

7 Nun faru novan cxaron, kaj prenu du sucxigantajn bovinojn, kiuj ankoraux ne havis sur si jugon, kaj jungu la bovinojn al la cxaro, kaj iliajn idojn forkonduku de ili hejmen.

8 Kaj prenu la keston de la Eternulo, kaj metu gxin sur la cxaron; kaj la orajn objektojn, kiujn vi donos al Li kiel prokulpan oferon, metu en kesteton apud gxin, kaj forsendu gxin, ke gxi iru.

9 Kaj rigardu:se gxi iros laux la vojo al sia regiono, al Bet-SXemesx, tiam Li faris al ni tiun grandan malbonon; se ne, tiam ni scios, ke ne Lia mano frapis nin, sed ke tio trafis nin blindokaze.

10 Kaj la homoj faris tiel, kaj ili prenis du sucxigantajn bovinojn kaj aljungis ilin al cxaro, kaj iliajn idojn ili ensxlosis hejme;

11 kaj ili metis la keston de la Eternulo sur la cxaron, kaj ankaux la kesteton kun la oraj musoj kaj kun la bildoj de siaj tuberoj.

12 Kaj la bovinoj direktis sian iradon al la vojo, kiu kondukas al Bet- SXemesx; ili iris nur sur unu vojeto, iris kaj blekis, sed ne forflankigxis dekstren nek maldekstren; kaj la estroj de la Filisxtoj iris post ili gxis la limo de Bet-SXemesx.

13 Kaj la logxantoj de Bet-SXemesx estis rikoltantaj tritikon en la valo; kiam ili levis la okulojn kaj ekvidis la keston, ili ekgxojis pro tio, kion ili vidis.

14 La cxaro venis sur la kampon de Josuo, Bet-SXemesxano, kaj haltis tie; tie estis granda sxtono. Kaj oni dishakis la lignon de la cxaro, kaj la bovinojn oni oferis brulofere al la Eternulo.

15 La Levidoj malsuprenprenis la keston de la Eternulo, kaj la kesteton, kiu estis apud gxi kaj enhavis la orajn objektojn, kaj ili metis tion sur la grandan sxtonon; kaj la logxantoj de Bet-SXemesx faris bruloferojn kaj bucxis bucxoferojn al la Eternulo en tiu tago.

16 Kaj la kvin estroj de la Filisxtoj vidis, kaj reiris en Ekronon en la sama tago.

17 Kaj jen estas la oraj tuberoj, kiujn la Filisxtoj donis kiel prokulpan oferon al la Eternulo:unu pro Asxdod, unu pro Gaza, unu pro Asxkelon, unu pro Gat, unu pro Ekron.

18 La oraj musoj, laux la nombro de cxiuj urboj Filisxtaj en la kvin provincoj, kiel de la urboj fortikigitaj, tiel ankaux de la nesxirmitaj vilagxoj, kaj ankaux la granda sxtono, sur kiun oni metis la keston de la Eternulo, estas kasxitaj gxis nun sur la kampo de Josuo, la Bet-SXemesxano.

19 Kaj Li frapis la logxantojn de Bet-SXemesx pro tio, ke ili enrigardis en la keston de la Eternulo; Li mortigis el la popolo kvindek mil sepdek homojn; kaj ekfunebris la popolo pro tio, ke la Eternulo frapis la popolon per granda frapo.

20 Kaj la logxantoj de Bet-SXemesx diris:Kiu povas stari antaux la Eternulo, tiu sankta Dio? kaj al kiu Li iros de ni?

21 Kaj ili sendis senditojn al la logxantoj de Kirjat-Jearim, por diri:La Filisxtoj redonis la keston de la Eternulo; venu, prenu gxin al vi.

Exploring the Meaning of 1_Samuel 6      

The Philistines were desperate to get rid of the stolen Ark of the Covenant. They had suffered plagues, and the statue of their god, Dagon, had fallen. Seven months after they had taken the Ark, the priests and diviners of the Philistines advised that it should be returned to the Lord “Jehovah” in Israel’s territory, accompanied by a suitable “trespass offering”. This would be an admission of guilt.

It was decided that the offering should be five gold tumors, or hemorrhoids, and five gold mice - representing the two afflictions that had plagued their people, and the five cities of the Philistines. They built a special cart to carry the Ark and the trespass offering, and two young milk cows pulled it. The cows were set free to find their own route, and headed straight for Israelite territory. The Israelite people in the border town of Beth Shemesh saw the cart coming, and rejoiced. They used a large stone as an altar, split up the wood of the cart and offered the two cows as a sacrifice. The golden objects were then distributed through the land.

In Divine Providence 326, we get an explanation of the meaning of the symbols in this chapter:

The hemorrhoids that plagued the Philistines in 1 Samuel 5 represent earthly loves separated from spiritual ones. The golden hemorrhoids represent earthly loves that have been purified, and made good.

The mice represent distortions of the truth which destroy the church. The golden mice represent the repair of the destruction via good loves and actions.

The cart that carried the ark and the trespass offerings symbolizes a new teaching, and the cows that led it symbolize “good earthly feelings.” The cows lowed as they led the cart. Swedenborg writes of this story that we must turn the obsessions that our earthly self holds with evil into good desires, and that the lowing of the cows as they drew the cart away represents how difficult this is. The sacrifice of the cows when they reached their destination indicates that the Lord was appeased. (See Divine Providence 326)

These symbols reveal something about our relationship with God, and the importance of uniting faith and charity, good and truth, within ourselves. The Philistines represent a spiritual state with faith separate from charity, and this chapter tells us that in order to reunite our faith with charity we must turn our loves of evil into the desire to do good with our knowledge.

The end of the chapter tells that the people of Beth Shemesh, who received the Ark of the Covenant, made a fatal mistake: some of them looked into the Ark. As a consequence, 50,070 of their people died. They sent a message to the people of Kirjath Jearim, asking them to come down and take the Ark from them.

The primary message here is the power of the Lord’s Ten Commandments. In the book True Christian Religion, we are taught that there was tremendous holiness and power in the law written on the stone tablets, because it was a “summary of the whole of religion.” The two engraved tablets represent the link between us and God. One of them contains a synopsis of all things related to God, and the other, a synopsis of all things related to us (see True Christian Religion 285 286). If we are to ever trespass the commandments or treat them as less than holy, harm will surely come. Therefore, we must work with the Lord in order to acquire an appropriate reverence for His commandments. This needs to go together with an active and sincere effort to obey them to the best of our frail and limited human ability.
