Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Samuel 5:2

_ _ the house of Dagon — Stately temples were erected in honor of this idol, which was the principal deity of the Philistines, but whose worship extended over all Syria, as well as Mesopotamia and Chaldea; its name being found among the Assyrian gods on the cuneiform inscriptions [Rawlinson]. It was represented under a monstrous combination of a human head, breast, and arms, joined to the belly and tail of a fish. The captured ark was placed in the temple of Dagon, right before this image of the idol.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Samuel 5:1-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Samuel 5:2

By Dagon — By way of reproach, as a spoil and trophy set there to the honour of Dagon, to whom doubtless they ascribed this victory.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

When the Philistines took the ark of God, they brought it into the house of (b) Dagon, and set it by Dagon.

(b) Which was their chief idol, and as some write, from the navel downward was like a fish, and upward like a man.
