1 Samuel 5:6-7

6 a  The hand of the  Lord was heavy against the people of Ashdod, and he terrified and afflicted them with b  tumors, both Ashdod and its territory. 7And when the men of Ashdod saw how things were, they said, “The ark of the God of Israel must not remain with us, for his hand is hard against us and against Dagon our god.”
