1 Samuel 6:10-15

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 6

10 Then the men did so: they took two milk cows and hitched them to the cart, and shut in their calves at home. 11 And they put the ark of the LORD on the cart, and the saddlebag with the gold mice and the likenesses of their tumors. 12 Now the cows went straight in the direction of Beth-shemesh; they went on the same road, bellowing as they went, and did not turn off to the right or to the left. And the governors of the Philistines followed them to the border of Beth-shemesh.
13 Now the people of Beth-shemesh were gathering in their wheat harvest in the valley, and they raised their eyes and saw the ark, and rejoiced at seeing it. 14 And the cart came into the field of Joshua the Beth-shemite and stopped there where there was a large stone; and they split the wood of the cart and offered the cows as a burnt offering to the LORD. 15 And the Levites took down the ark of the LORD and the saddlebag that was with it, in which were the articles of gold, and put them on the large stone; and the men of Beth-shemesh offered burnt offerings and sacrificed sacrifices that day to the LORD.
King James Version

Chapter 6

10 And the men did so; and took two milch kine, and tied them to the cart, and shut up their calves at home: 11 And they laid the ark of the LORD upon the cart, and the coffer with the mice of gold and the images of their emerods. 12 And the kine took the straight way to the way of Bethshemesh, and went along the highway, lowing as they went, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the left; and the lords of the Philistines went after them unto the border of Bethshemesh. 13 And they of Bethshemesh were reaping their wheat harvest in the valley: and they lifted up their eyes, and saw the ark, and rejoiced to see it. 14 And the cart came into the field of Joshua, a Bethshemite, and stood there, where there was a great stone: and they clave the wood of the cart, and offered the kine a burnt offering unto the LORD. 15 And the Levites took down the ark of the LORD, and the coffer that was with it, wherein the jewels of gold were, and put them on the great stone: and the men of Bethshemesh offered burnt offerings and sacrificed sacrifices the same day unto the LORD.
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 6

10 The men did this: They took two milk cows, hitched them to the cart, and confined their calves in the pen. 11 Then they put the ark of the Lord on the cart, along with the box containing the gold mice and the images of their tumors. 12 The cows went straight up the road to Beth-shemesh. They stayed on that one highway, lowing as they went; they never strayed to the right or to the left. The Philistine rulers were walking behind them to the territory of Beth-shemesh.
13 The people of Beth-shemesh were harvesting wheat in the valley, and when they looked up and saw the ark, they were overjoyed to see it. 14 The cart came to the field of Joshua of Beth-shemesh and stopped there near a large rock. The people of the city chopped up the cart and offered the cows as a burnt offering to the Lord. 15 The Levites removed the ark of the Lord, along with the box containing the gold objects, and placed them on the large rock. That day the people of Beth-shemesh offered burnt offerings and made sacrifices to the Lord.
New Living Translation

Chapter 6

10 So these instructions were carried out. Two cows were hitched to the cart, and their newborn calves were shut up in a pen. 11 Then the Ark of the LORD and the chest containing the gold rats and gold tumors were placed on the cart. 12 And sure enough, without veering off in other directions, the cows went straight along the road toward Beth-shemesh, lowing as they went. The Philistine rulers followed them as far as the border of Beth-shemesh.
13 The people of Beth-shemesh were harvesting wheat in the valley, and when they saw the Ark, they were overjoyed! 14 The cart came into the field of a man named Joshua and stopped beside a large rock. So the people broke up the wood of the cart for a fire and killed the cows and sacrificed them to the LORD as a burnt offering. 15 Several men of the tribe of Levi lifted the Ark of the LORD and the chest containing the gold rats and gold tumors from the cart and placed them on the large rock. Many sacrifices and burnt offerings were offered to the LORD that day by the people of Beth-shemesh.
English Standard Version

Chapter 6

10 The men did so, and took two milk cows and yoked them to the cart and shut up their calves at home. 11 And they put the ark of the LORD on the cart and the box with the golden mice and the images of their tumors. 12 And the cows went straight in the direction of Beth-shemesh along one highway, lowing as they went. They turned neither to the right nor to the left, and the lords of the Philistines went after them as far as the border of Beth-shemesh. 13 Now the people of Beth-shemesh were reaping their wheat harvest in the valley. And when they lifted up their eyes and saw the ark, they rejoiced to see it. 14 The cart came into the field of Joshua of Beth-shemesh and stopped there. A great stone was there. And they split up the wood of the cart and offered the cows as a burnt offering to the LORD. 15 And the Levites took down the ark of the LORD and the box that was beside it, in which were the golden figures, and set them upon the great stone. And the men of Beth-shemesh offered burnt offerings and sacrificed sacrifices on that day to the LORD.
New International Version

Chapter 6

10 So they did this. They took two such cows and hitched them to the cart and penned up their calves. 11 They placed the ark of the LORD on the cart and along with it the chest containing the gold rats and the models of the tumors. 12 Then the cows went straight up toward Beth Shemesh, keeping on the road and lowing all the way; they did not turn to the right or to the left. The rulers of the Philistines followed them as far as the border of Beth Shemesh.
13 Now the people of Beth Shemesh were harvesting their wheat in the valley, and when they looked up and saw the ark, they rejoiced at the sight. 14 The cart came to the field of Joshua of Beth Shemesh, and there it stopped beside a large rock. The people chopped up the wood of the cart and sacrificed the cows as a burnt offering to the LORD. 15 The Levites took down the ark of the LORD, together with the chest containing the gold objects, and placed them on the large rock. On that day the people of Beth Shemesh offered burnt offerings and made sacrifices to the LORD.

Chapter 6

10 Entonces los hombres lo hicieron así; tomaron dos vacas con crías, las uncieron al carro y encerraron sus becerros en casa. 11 Colocaron el arca del SEÑOR en el carro, y la caja con los ratones de oro y las semejanzas de sus tumores. 12 Y las vacas tomaron el camino recto en dirección a Bet-semes ; iban por el camino, mugiendo mientras iban, y no se desviaron ni a la derecha ni a la izquierda. Y los príncipes de los filisteos las siguieron hasta el límite de Bet-semes. 13 El pueblo de Bet-semes estaba segando el trigo en el valle, y alzaron sus ojos y vieron el arca, y se alegraron al verla. 14 Y el carro llegó al campo de Josué el bet-semita y se detuvo allí donde había una gran piedra; y ellos partieron la madera del carro y ofrecieron las vacas en holocausto al SEÑOR. 15 Los levitas bajaron el arca del SEÑOR y la caja que estaba con ella, en la cual estaban los objetos de oro, y las colocaron sobre la gran piedra ; y los hombres de Bet-semes ofrecieron holocaustos e hicieron sacrificios aquel día al SEÑOR.

10 Entonces los hombres lo hicieron así. Tomaron dos vacas con crías, las ataron al carro y encerraron sus becerros en casa. 11 Colocaron el arca del SEÑOR en el carro, y la caja con los ratones de oro y las semejanzas de sus tumores. 12 Y las vacas tomaron el camino recto en dirección a Bet Semes.

Chapter 6

10 Así lo hicieron. Tomaron dos vacas con cría y las ataron a la carreta, pero encerraron los becerros en el establo. 11 Además, en la carreta pusieron el arca del SEÑOR y la caja que contenía las figuras de ratas y de tumores de oro. 12 ¡Y las vacas se fueron mugiendo por todo el camino, directamente a Bet Semes! Siguieron esa ruta sin desviarse para ningún lado. Los jefes de los filisteos se fueron detrás de la carreta, hasta llegar al territorio de Bet Semes.
13 Los habitantes de Bet Semes, que estaban en el valle cosechando el trigo, alzaron la vista y, al ver el arca, se llenaron de alegría. 14 La carreta llegó hasta el campo de Josué de Bet Semes, donde había una gran piedra, y allí se detuvo. Entonces la gente del pueblo usó la madera de la carreta como leña, y ofreció las vacas en holocausto al SEÑOR. 15 Los levitas que habían descargado la carreta pusieron el arca del SEÑOR sobre la gran piedra, junto con la caja que contenía las figuras de oro. Aquel día los habitantes de Bet Semes ofrecieron holocaustos y sacrificios al SEÑOR.

10 Y aquellos hombres lo hicieron así; tomando dos vacas que criaban, las uncieron al carro, y encerraron en casa sus becerros. 11 Luego pusieron el arca de Jehová sobre el carro, y la caja con los ratones de oro y las figuras de sus tumores. 12 Y las vacas se encaminaron por el camino de Bet-semes, y seguían camino recto, andando y bramando, sin apartarse ni a derecha ni a izquierda; y los príncipes de los filisteos fueron tras ellas hasta el límite de Bet-semes. 13 Y los de Bet-semes segaban el trigo en el valle; y alzando los ojos vieron el arca, y se regocijaron cuando la vieron. 14 Y el carro vino al campo de Josué de Bet-semes, y paró allí donde había una gran piedra; y ellos cortaron la madera del carro, y ofrecieron las vacas en holocausto a Jehová. 15 Y los levitas bajaron el arca de Jehová, y la caja que estaba junto a ella, en la cual estaban las joyas de oro, y las pusieron sobre aquella gran piedra; y los hombres de Bet-semes sacrificaron holocaustos y dedicaron sacrificios a Jehová en aquel día.

10 Y aquellos varones lo hicieron así; tomando dos vacas que criaban, las uncieron al carro, y encerraron en casa sus becerros. 11 Luego pusieron el arca del SEÑOR sobre el carro, y la caja con los ratones de oro y con las formas de sus hemorroides. 12 Y las vacas se encaminaron por el camino de Bet-semes, e iban por un mismo camino andando y bramando, sin apartarse ni a diestra ni a siniestra; y los príncipes de los filisteos fueron tras ellas hasta el término de Bet-semes. 13 Y los de Bet-semes segaban el trigo en el valle; y alzando sus ojos vieron el arca, y se regocijaron cuando la vieron. 14 Y el carro vino al campo de Josué bet-semita, y paró allí porque allí había una gran piedra; y ellos cortaron la madera del carro, y ofrecieron las vacas en holocausto al SEÑOR. 15 Y los levitas bajaron el arca del SEÑOR, y la caja que estaba junto a ella, en la cual estaban las alhajas de oro, y las pusieron sobre aquella gran piedra; y los varones de Bet-semes sacrificaron holocaustos y mataron víctimas al SEÑOR en aquel día.
