The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire Bible1 Samuel 4:5
And when the ark of the covenant of the Lord came into the
Being brought thither by the men that carried it:
all Israel shouted with a great shout,
so that the earth rang again;
this they did as now sure of victory, because of the ark, and to give
spirit and courage to each other to go forth to battle, and to strike a
panic into their enemies.
