Bible Story Summary
- Eli’s sons took the ark of God into battle.
- The Philistines won the battle and stole the ark of God.
- The Philistines put the ark of God in their temple by a statue of a false god.
- The statue fell facedown twice in front of the ark.
- The Philistines became sick when the ark was in their city.
- The Philistines sent the ark of God back to the Israelites.
