1 Kingdoms 6:5

aka: 1 Samuel (for those of us not playing with an Orthodox Bible...)

5 - And for each lord, add a gold mouse that images the mice utterly ravaging your land. Then you shall give glory to the Lord; perhaps He may lighten His hand from you, from off your gods, and from off your land.

For context, this is while the Philistines had the Ark of the Covenant, and this is the Philistine priests telling their leaders what to do to get rid of the plagues on their land since they captured the Ark.


  1. Its sounds so "Lord of the Rings" lol

  2. Thanks for letting me know this was I Samuel!! :)

    Since again there is no 30th verse, I'll go with the last TWO because they go together...and, Ichabod is such a cool name! :D

    21 She named the boy Ichabod, saying, "The glory has departed from Israel"-because of the capture of the ark of God and the deaths of her father-in-law and her husband. 22 She said, "The glory has departed from Israel, for the ark of God has been captured."

  3. LK,

    It's the gold mice, isn't it?

  4. Susanne,

    I figured it needed a Orthodox to Protestant translation of the book. :)

    See, I can't hear the name Ichabod without going to the Sleepy Hollow place, and then there's headless horsemen involved...

  5. And I was only kidding about the cool name factor. Ha, ha!

    Ichabod. Hmmmmm

  6. Susanne,

    See, the giant smiley after your 'Ichabod's a cool name' should have clued me in. :)
