Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Samuel 5:5

_ _ Therefore neither the priests ... nor any ... tread on the threshold of Dagon — A superstitious ceremony crept in, and in the providence of God was continued, by which the Philistines contributed to publish this proof of the helplessness of their god.

_ _ unto this day — The usage continued in practice at the time when this history was written — probably in the later years of Samuel’s life.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Samuel 5:1-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Samuel 5:5

This day — When this history was written, which if written by Samuel towards the end of his life, was a sufficient ground for this expression.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Samuel 5:5

Therefore neither the priests of Dagon, nor any that come into Dagon's house, (c) tread on the threshold of Dagon in Ashdod unto this day.

(c) Thus instead of acknowledging the true God by this miracle, they fall into greater superstition.
