1 И пробыл ковчег Господень в области Филистимской семь месяцев.

2 И призвали Филистимляне жрецов и прорицателей, и сказали: что намделать с ковчегом Господним? научите нас, как нам отпустить его в свое место.

3 Те сказали: если вы хотите отпустить ковчег Бога Израилева, то не отпускайте его ни с чем, но принесите Ему жертву повинности; тогда исцелитесь и узнаете, за что не отступает от вас рука Его.

4 И сказали они: какую жертву повинности должны мы принести Ему? Те сказали: по числу владетелей Филистимских пять наростов золотых и пять мышей золотых; ибо казнь одна на всех вас и на владетелях ваших;

5 итак сделайте изваяния наростов ваших и изваяния мышей ваших,опустошающих землю, и воздайте славу Богу Израилеву; может быть, Он облегчит руку Свою над вами и над богами вашими и над землею вашею;

6 и для чего вам ожесточать сердце ваше, как ожесточили сердце свое Египтяне и фараон? вот, когда Господь показал силу Свою над ними, то они отпустили их, и тепошли;

7 итак возьмите, сделайте одну колесницу новую и возьмите двухпервородивших коров, на которых не было ярма, и впрягите коров в колесницу, а телят их отведите от них домой;

8 и возьмите ковчег Господень, и поставьте его на колесницу, а золотые вещи, которые принесете Ему в жертву повинности, положите в ящик сбоку его; и отпустите его, и пусть пойдет;

9 и смотрите, если он пойдет к пределам своим, к Вефсамису, то он великое сие зло сделал нам; если же нет, то мы будем знать, что не его рука поразила нас, а сделалось это с нами случайно.

10 И сделали они так: и взяли двух первородивших коров и впрягли их в колесницу, а телят их удержали дома;

11 и поставили ковчег Господа на колесницу и ящик с золотыми мышамии изваяниями наростов.

12 И пошли коровы прямо на дорогу к Вефсамису; одною дорогою шли, шли и мычали, но не уклонялись ни направо, ни налево; владетели же Филистимские следовали за ними до пределов Вефсамиса.

13 Жители Вефсамиса жали тогда пшеницу в долине, и взглянувувидели ковчег Господень, и обрадовались, что увидели его.

14 Колесница же пришла на поле Иисуса Вефсамитянина и остановиласьтам; и был тут большой камень, и раскололи колесницу на дрова, а коров принесли во всесожжение Господу.

15 Левиты сняли ковчег Господа и ящик, бывший при нем, в котором были золотые вещи, и поставили на большом том камне; жители же Вефсамиса принесли в тотдень всесожжения и закололи жертвы Господу.

16 И пять владетелей Филистимских видели это и возвратились в тот день в Аккарон.

17 Золотые эти наросты, которые принесли Филистимляне в жертву повинности Господу, были: один за Азот, один за Газу, один за Аскалон, один за Геф, один за Аккарон;

18 а золотые мыши были по числу всех городов Филистимских – пяти владетелей,от городов укрепленных и до открытых сел, до большого камня, на котором поставили ковчег Господа и который находится до сего дня на поле Иисуса Вефсамитянина.

19 И поразил Он жителей Вефсамиса за то, что они заглядывали в ковчег Господа, и убил из народа пятьдесят тысяч семьдесят человек; и заплакал народ, ибо поразил Господь народ поражением великим.

20 И сказали жители Вефсамиса: кто может стоять пред Господом, сим святым Богом? и к кому Он пойдет от нас?

21 И послали послов к жителям Кириаф-Иарима сказать: Филистимляне возвратили ковчег Господа; придите, возьмите его к себе.

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.
