Philistines Desecrating the sacred; military conquest Plague of mice; killer hemorrhoids
Israel Idolatry and general abominations Conquest by enemies; promise that Jerusalem would be "wiped out as one wipes a dish"
Job None, and there's the rub Tested by Satan with illness, death of family
Zimri,
son of Salu
Worshipping
Baal
Along with consort, was skewered with lance marshmallow-style (two victims, one lance)
