Quotes to Consider:
Matthew Henry on I Samuel 5:4: "Instead of despising
Dagon, for the threshold’s sake that beheaded him, [the Philistines]
were almost ready to worship the threshold because it was the block
on which he was beheaded, and will never set their feet on that on
which Dagon lost his head, shaming those who tread under foot the
blood of the covenant and trample on things truly sacred. Yet this
piece of superstition would help to perpetuate the remembrance of
Dagon’s disgrace; for, with the custom, the reason would be
transmitted to posterity, and the children that should be born,
enquiring why the threshold of Dagon’s temple must not be trodden
on, would be told that Dagon fell before the ark of the Lord. Thus
God would have honour even out of their superstition. We are not
told that they repaired the broken image; it is probable that they
sent the ark of God away first, and then they patched it up again,
and set it in its place; for, it seems, they ‘cannot deliver their
souls, nor say, Is there not a lie in our right hand?’ (Isa.
