I was just reading in I Samuel, about when the Ark of the Covenant was captured by the Philistines and set in Dagon's temple. The idol Dagon fell over before the ark, twice, and the 2nd time his hands and head had broken off.
I find it interesting that the people did not want to know how to appease this new, more powerful God. Instead, they wanted to get rid of it because it was overturning the idol they worshipped.
How often are people today like that? They see the power of God, but they want Him to go away and leave them to their weaker idols. "We like worshipping our weak, man-made idols!"
