February 12, 1 Samuel 4:5-11
A few different thoughts here. First I've often wondered how they were able to move the ark from the most holy place. According to the Law, only the Levites could move the ark when Israel moved the tabernacle. And only the high priest could enter the most holy place once a year. It also says that a man who enters unclean would die. So they probably should have died, but all things are done so that God can be glorified and this I suppose includes what happens to the ark. I will credit the armies of Israel for giving a shout when the ark came in. the Philistines thought that God had entered the camp but it really was just a box, Israel could have just worshiped God though, and perhaps His spirit may have actually entered the camp. The results may have been different.
