1 Samuel Chapter 5
4 And when they arose early on the morrow morning, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the ground before the ark of the LORD; and the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands were cut off upon the threshold; only the stump of Dagon was left to him.
8 They sent therefore and gathered all the lords of the Philistines unto them, and said, What shall we do with the ark of the God of Israel? And they answered, Let the ark of the God of Israel be carried about unto Gath. And they carried the ark of the God of Israel about thither.
9 And it was so, that, after they had carried it about, the hand of the LORD was against the city with a very great destruction: and he smote the men of the city, both small and great, and they had emerods in their secret parts.
10 Therefore they sent the ark of God to Ekron. And it came to pass, as the ark of God came to Ekron, that the Ekronites cried out, saying, They have brought about the ark of the God of Israel to us, to slay us and our people.
11 So they sent and gathered together all the lords of the Philistines, and said, Send away the ark of the God of Israel, and let it go again to his own place, that it slay us not, and our people: for there was a deadly destruction throughout all the city; the hand of God was very heavy there.

Although we shouldn't worship objects as though that's what connects us to GOD he did warn that if these HOLY objects be touch that death be upon them in previous chapters,the LEVITIES carried z TABERNACLE and set it up,it was the inheratence of Aarons family and he and his son after had to cover it and do other things in order to do it appropriately,and these people did not know of these things..

Our God is awesome and should be respected and worshiped in awe. You cannot afford to "mess up" with where God has His awesome presence- The Ark of the Covenant. This is why I have been taught by my parents to give reference to the Holy Bible- a sacred Book where the Word of God dwells.
