„The ark of the LORD had been in the land of the Philistines seven months 2when they summoned priests and diviners to ask, What shall we do with the ark of the LORD? Tell us what we should send back with it. 3They replied: If you intend to send back the ark of the God of Israel, you must not send it alone, but must, by all means, make amends to God through a reparation offering. Then you will be healed, and will learn why God continues to afflict you. 4When asked further, What reparation offering should be our amends to God? they replied: Five golden tumors and five golden mice to correspond to the number of Philistine leaders, since the same plague has struck all of you and your leaders”.
