A Tipsy Idol, Lowing Cows, and Golden Rats

A Tipsy Idol, Lowing Cows, and Golden Rats You shall not make yourselves any idols: no images of animals, birds, or fish. You must never bow or worship it in any way. Exodus 20:4-5 The Facts, Please! The tipsy idol-This idol was Dagon, the main god of the Philistines. Its body or trunk was the likeness of a fish, and its top half was of

a man, with arms and hands. Dagon was considered to be the father of another famous heathen god, Baal. The Philistines had two main temples in honor of Dagonone at Ashdod and one at Gaza, with smaller temples elsewhere. More Facts, Please! Lowing cows-In Bible times the terms used in regard to cattle were the same as now: a male was a bull, a female was a cow, and their offspring was a calf. Before a female

had any calves, she was known as a heifer, and the young male was a bullock. A milk cow was not accustomed to being yoked up to a cart. If her baby calf was penned up, she would do everything she could to go to where it was. It would be a very unnatural thing for her to walk away from her baby and her own pasture and pull a cart into a strange land. More Facts, Please!

Rats-Rats are rodents (gnawing animals). There are over five hundred kinds of rats all over the world. Rats are very destructive. They eat crops and pass along disease to people. The black rat was responsible for spreading the Black Plague throughout Europe in the Middle Ages.
