      1  After seven months the Philistines take counsel how to send
        back the ark.
    10  They bring it on a new cart with an offering unto
        Beth-shemesh.
    19  The people are smitten for looking into the ark.
    21  They send to them of Kirjath-jearim to fetch it.

      Bochart has collected many curious accounts relative to the
      terrible devastations made by these mischievous animals.
      William, Archbishop of Tyre, records, that in the beginning of
      the twelfth century, a repentantial council was held at
      Naplouse, where five and twenty canons were framed for the
      correction of the manners of the inhabitants of the Christian
      kingdom of Jerusalem, who they apprehended had provoked to
      bring upon them the calamities of earthquakes, war, and
      famine.  This last he ascribes to locusts and devouring mice,
      which had for four years together so destroyed the fruits of
      the earth as to cause an almost total failure of their crops.
      It was customary for the ancient heathen to offer to their
      gods such monuments of their deliverance as represented the
      evils from which they had been rescued; and Tavernier informs
      us, that among the Indians, when a pilgrim goes to one of the
      pagodas for a cure, he brings the figure of the member
      affected, made of gold, silver, or copper, according to his
      circumstances, which he offers to his god.

      As it is very improbable that the village of Beth-shemesh
      should contain, or be capable of employing, 50,070 men in the
      fields at wheat harvest, much less that they could all peep
      into the ark, and from the uncommon manner in which it is
      expressed in the original, it is generally allowed that there
      is some corruption in the text, or that some explanatory word
      is omitted.  The Hebrew is {shivim ish, chamishim aileph ish,}
      literally, "seventy men, fifty thousand men:"  so LXX.
      [                                                           .]
      Vulgate, {septuaginta viros, et quinquaginta millia plebis,}
      "70 (chief) men, and 50,000 common people."  Targum, {besabey
      mma,}  "of the elders of the people 70 men, {ovekahala,} and
      in the congregation 50,000 men."  But the Syriac, {chamsho
      alphin weshivin gavrin,} "5,000 and 70 men;" with which the
      Arabic agrees; while Josephus has only [       ,] seventy men;
      and three reputable MSS. of Dr. Kennicott's also omit "50,000
      men."  Some learned men, however, would render, by supplying
      [Mm,] {mem,} "70 men; fifty out of a thousand;" which
      supposes about 1,400 present, and that a twentieth part were
      slain.
