Chapter Summary

The plague that struck the Philistines 5 1 Sam, in the Hebrew Bible (MT) is not the same as in Greek (LXX). But there is no doubt that it is the same story in two Bibles. The text-critical studies dealt with the readings of the LXX. Each was compared with the corresponding isolated reading of the MT. This chapter explains what happened in the Ashdod after the presentation of the MT. The Greek Bible differs from MT at several points, and some of them are particularly instructive for determining the relationship between MT and LXX. In the original LXX the statue of Dagon does not fall to the ground in the two consecutive nights after the date on which the Ark of the Covenant has been deposited in the temple of Dagon in Ashdod. In MT these two nights and three days follow one another without express clearance.
