1 At ang kaban ng Panginoon ay napasa lupain ng mga Filisteo na pitong buwan.

2 At tinawag ng mga Filisteo ang mga saserdote at ang mga manghuhula, na sinasabi, Anong aming gagawin sa kaban ng Panginoon? Ipatalastas ninyo sa amin kung aming ipadadala sa kaniyang dako.

3 At kanilang sinabi, Kung inyong ipadadala ang kaban ng Dios ng Israel, ay huwag ninyong ipadalang walang laman; kundi sa ano pa man ay inyong ibalik siya na may handog ng dahil sa pagkakasala: kung magkagayo'y gagaling kayo, at malalaman ninyo kung bakit ang kaniyang kamay ay hindi humiwalay sa inyo.

4 Nang magkagayo'y kanilang sinabi, Ano ang handog dahil sa pagkakasala na aming igaganti sa kaniya? At kanilang sinabi, Limang gintong bukol, at Limang gintong daga ayon sa bilang ng mga pangulo ng mga Filisteo; sapagka't iisang salot ang napasa inyong lahat, at napasa inyong mga pangulo.

5 Kaya't kayo'y gagawa ng mga larawan ng inyong mga bukol, at mga larawan ng inyong mga daga na sumira ng lupain, at inyong bibigyan ng kaluwalhatian ang Dios ng Israel: baka sakaling kaniyang gaanan ang kaniyang kamay sa inyo, at sa inyong mga dios, at sa inyong lupain.

6 Bakit nga ninyo pinapagmamatigas ang inyong puso, na gaya ng mga taga Egipto at ni Faraon na pinapagmatigas ang kanilang puso? Nang siya'y makagawa ng kahangahanga sa kanila, di ba nila pinayaon ang bayan, at sila'y yumaon?

7 Ngayon nga'y kumuha kayo at maghanda kayo ng isang bagong karo, at dalawang bagong bakang gatasan, na hindi napatungan ng pamatok; at ikabit ninyo ang mga baka sa karo, at iuwi ninyo ang kanilang mga guya.

8 At kunin ninyo ang kaban ng Panginoon, at isilid ninyo sa karo; at isilid ninyo sa isang kahang nasa tabi niyaon ang mga hiyas na ginto na inyong ibabalik sa kaniya na pinakahandog dahil sa pagkakasala; at inyong ipadala upang yumaon.

9 At tingnan ninyo; kung umahon sa daan ng kaniyang sariling hangganan sa Beth-semes, ginawa nga niya sa atin ang malaking kasamaang ito: nguni't kung hindi, malalaman nga natin na hindi kaniyang kamay ang nanakit sa atin; isang pagkakataong nangyari sa atin.

10 At ginawang gayon ng mga lalake, at kumuha ng dalawang bagong bakang gatasan, at mga ikinabit sa karo, at kinulong ang kanilang mga guya sa bahay:

11 At kanilang inilagay ang kaban ng Panginoon sa karo, at ang kaha na may mga dagang ginto at mga larawan ng kanilang mga bukol.

12 At tinuwid ng mga baka ang daan sa Beth-semes; sila'y nagpatuloy sa lansangan, na umuungal habang yumayaon, at hindi lumiko sa kanan o sa kaliwa; at ang mga pangulo ng mga Filisteo ay sumunod sa kanila hanggang sa hangganan ng Beth-semes.

13 At silang mga Beth-semita ay umaani ng kanilang trigo sa libis: at kanilang itiningin ang kanilang mga mata, at nakita ang kaban, at nangagalak sa pagkakita niyaon.

14 At ang karo ay pumasok sa bukid ni Josue na Beth-semita, at tumayo roon, sa kinaroroonan ng isang malaking bato: at kanilang biniyak ang kahoy ng karo, at inihandog sa Panginoon ang mga baka na pinakahandog na susunugin.

15 At ibinaba ng mga Levita ang kaban ng Panginoon, at ang kaha na kasama niyaon, na may silid na mga hiyas na ginto, at mga ipinatong sa malaking bato at ang mga lalake sa Beth-semes ay naghandog ng mga handog na susunugin at naghain ng mga hain ng araw ding yaon sa Panginoon.

16 At nang makita ng limang pangulo ng mga Filisteo, ay bumalik sa Ecron nang araw ding yaon.

17 At ito ang mga bukol na ginto na ibinalik ng mga Filisteo sa Panginoon na pinakahandog dahil sa pagkakasala: sa Asdod ay isa, sa Gaza ay isa, sa Ascalon ay isa, sa Gath ay isa, sa Ecron ay isa;

18 At ang mga dagang ginto, ayon sa bilang ng lahat ng mga bayan ng mga Filisteo na nauukol sa limang pangulo, ng mga bayan na nakukutaan at gayon din ng mga nayon sa parang; sa makatuwid baga'y hanggang sa malaking bato na kanilang pinagbabaan ng kaban ng Panginoon, na ang batong yaon ay namamalagi hanggang sa araw na ito sa bukid ni Josue na Beth-semita.

19 At sumakit ang Dios sa mga tao sa Beth-semes, sapagka't kanilang tiningnan ang loob ng kaban ng Panginoon, sa makatuwid baga'y pumatay siya sa bayan ng pitong pung lalake at limang pung libong tao. At ang bayan ay nanaghoy, sapagka't sinaktan ng Panginoon ang bayan ng di kawasang pagpatay.

20 At ang mga lalake sa Beth-semes ay nagsabi, Sino ang makatatayo sa harap ng Panginoon, dito sa banal na Dios? at sino ang kaniyang sasampahin mula sa atin?

21 At sila'y nagsugo ng mga sugo sa mga tumatahan sa Chiriath-jearim, na nagsasabi, Ibinalik ng mga Filisteo ang kaban ng Panginoon; kayo'y magsilusong at iahon ninyo sa inyo.

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.
