Dagon
A fish, fish god
Strong's #H1712

Dagon was the main deity worshipped by Israel's longest and fiercest enemy the Philistines (Judges 16:23). A pagan fish god, it was credited with delivering Samson into their hands.

After the Philistine seize the Ark of the Covenant they place it in Dagon's temple as a war trophy (1Samuel 5). God's response to their lack of respect toward the Ark was to afflict, somewhat humorously, several Philistine cities with painful hemorrhoids (1Samuel 5:6)!

Roughly seventy-five years later, after overcoming Israel's King Saul in battle, the Philistines hang up his severed head in Dagon's temple (1Chronicles 10:10).
