Chapter 6

1 Now the ark of the LORD had been in the territory of the Philistines for seven months. 2 And the Philistines called for the priests and the diviners, saying, 'What are we to do with the ark of the LORD? Tell us how we may send it to its place.' 3 And they said, 'If you are going to send the ark of the God of Israel away, do not send it empty; but you shall certainly return to Him a guilt offering. Then you will be healed, and it will be revealed to you why His hand does not leave you.'
King James Version

Chapter 6

1 El arca del SEÑOR estuvo en la tierra de los filisteos siete meses. 2 Entonces los filisteos llamaron a los sacerdotes y a los adivinos, diciendo: ¿Qué haremos con el arca del SEÑOR? Decidnos cómo la hemos de enviar a su lugar. 3 Y ellos dijeron: Si enviáis el arca del Dios de Israel, no la enviéis vacía ; sino que ciertamente devolveréis a El una ofrenda por la culpa. Entonces seréis sanados y conoceréis por qué su mano no se ha apartado de vosotros.

1 El arca del SEÑOR estuvo en territorio filisteo siete meses,
2 y los filisteos convocaron a los sacerdotes y a los adivinos para preguntarles: ?¿Qué vamos a hacer con el arca del SEÑOR? Dígannos de qué modo hay que devolverla a su lugar.
3 ?Si piensan devolverla —contestaron—, no la manden sin nada; tienen que presentarle a Dios una ofrenda compensatoria. Entonces recobrarán la salud y sabrán por qué Dios no ha dejado de castigarlos.
