      1  The Philistines having brought the ark into Ashdod, set it
        in the house of Dagon.
     3  Dagon is smitten down and cut in pieces, and they of Ashdod
        smitten with emerods.
     8  So God deals with them of Gath, when it was brought
        thither;
    10  and so with them of Ekron, when it was brought thither.
    
    
    VERSE 1
    - took.
       * 1Sa 4:11,17,18,22 Ps 78:61
    - Eben-ezer.
       * 1Sa 4:1; 7:12
    - Ashdod.
      Ashdod, called Azotus by the Greeks, was one of the five
      satrapies of the Philistines, and a place of great strength
      and consequence.  It was situated near the Mediterranean,
      between Askelon and Jamnia, thirty-four miles north of Gaza,
      according to Diodorus Siculus, and the Antonine and Jerusalem
      Itineraries.  It is now called Shdood; and Dr. Richardson says
      they neither saw nor heard of any ruins there.  "The ground,"
      he observes, "around Ashdod is beautifully undulating, but not
      half stocked with cattle.  The site of the town is on the
      summit of a grassy hill; and, if we are to believe historians,
      was anciently as strong as it was beautiful."
    
       * Jos 11:22 Ac 8:40
    - Azotus.
    
    
    VERSE 2 
     - of Dagon.
       * Jud 16:23 1Ch 10:10 Da 5:2,23 Hab 1:11,16

       * Ex 12:12 Ps 97:7 Isa 19:1; 46:1,2 Zep 2:11 Mr 3:11 Lu 10:18-20

    - set him.
       * Isa 19:1; 40:20; 41:7; 44:17-20; 46:1,2,7 Jer 10:8

       * Isa 2:18,19; 27:9 Jer 10:11; 50:2 Eze 6:4-6 Da 11:8 Mic 1:7

      The name of this idol, Dagon, signifies a fish:  and it is
      supposed to be the Atergatis of the Syrians, corruptly called
      Derceto by the Greeks, which had the upper part like a woman,
      and the lower part like a fish; as Lucian informs us:  [
                                                                   ]
      "In Phoenicia I saw the image of Derceto; a strange sight
      truly!  For she had the half of a woman, but from the thighs
      downward a fish's tail."  Diodorus, (1. ii.) describing the
      same idol, as represented at Askelon, says, [
                                                                  .]
      "It had the head of a woman, but all the rest of the body a
      fish's."  Probably Horace alludes to this idol, in De Art.
      Poet. v. 4; {Desinat in piscem, mulier formosa superne:}  "The
      upper part a handsome woman, and the lower part a fish."  If
      such was the form of this idol, then everything that was human
      was broken off from what resembled a fish.
    
    - the stump.  or, the fishy part.
    
    
    VERSE 5 
     - neither.

    - emerods.
       * :9,11; 6:5 De 28:27 Job 31:3 Ps 78:66

      regionis illius, et nati sunt mures; et facta est confusio
      mortis magnae in civitate; "And [the cities and fields in
      Vulg.] the midst of that region produced mice; [Vulg. burst
      up, and mice were produced;] and there was the confusion of a
      great death in the city."  See ch.
