Book of Samuel 4, 1-4

“And the word of Samuel came to all Israel: at that time Israel went out in battle to meet the Philistines and encamped with Eben-ezer, and the Philistines encamped at Afec.

And the Philistines presented battle to Israel, and fighting the battle, Israel was defeated before the Philistines, who wounded four thousand men on the battlefield.

And when the people returned to the camp, the elders of Israel said, Why has Jehovah wounded us today before the Philistines? Let us bring the ark of the covenant of Jehovah from Shiloh, so that, being among us, it may save us from the hand of our enemies.

And the people sent to Shiloh, and brought from there the ark of the covenant of the Lord of hosts, which is between the cherubim; and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were there with the ark of the covenant of God. “
