David Attempts to Move the Ark

13David consulted with all his officials, including the generals and captains of his army.H1732H3289H8269H505H3967H5057 2Then he addressed the entire assembly of Israel as follows: "If you approve and if it is the will of the LORD our God, let us send messages to all the Israelites throughout the land, including the priests and Levites in their towns and pasturelands. Let us invite them to come and join us.H1732H559H6951H3478H2895H3068H430H7971H6555H251H7604H776H3478H3548H3881H5892H4054H6908 3It is time to bring back the Ark of our God, for we neglected it during the reign of Saul."H5437H727H430H1875H3117H7586 4The whole assembly agreed to this, for the people could see it was the right thing to do.H6951H559H6213H1697H3474H5869H5971 5So David summoned all Israel, from the Shihor Brook of Egypt in the south all the way to the town of Lebo-hamath in the north, to join in bringing the Ark of God from Kiriath-jearim.H1732H6950H3478H6950H7883H4714H935H2574H935H727H430H7157 6Then David and all Israel went to Baalah of Judah (also called Kiriath-jearim) to bring back the Ark of God, which bears the name of the LORD who is enthroned between the cherubim.H1732H5927H3478H1173H7157H3063H5927H727H430H3068H3427H3742H8034H7121 7They placed the Ark of God on a new cart and brought it from Abinadab's house. Uzzah and Ahio were guiding the cart.H7392H727H430H2319H5699H1004H41H5798H283H5090H5699 8David and all Israel were celebrating before God with all their might, singing songs and playing all kinds of musical instruments—lyres, harps, tambourines, cymbals, and trumpets.H1732H3478H7832H6440H430H5797H7892H3658H5035H8596H4700H2689 9But when they arrived at the threshing floor of Nacon, the oxen stumbled, and Uzzah reached out his hand to steady the Ark.H935H1637H3592H5798H7971H3027H270H727H1241H8058 10Then the LORD's anger was aroused against Uzzah, and he struck him dead because he had laid his hand on the Ark. So Uzzah died there in the presence of God.H639H3068H2734H5798H5221H7971H3027H727H4191H6440H430 11David was angry because the LORD's anger had burst out against Uzzah. He named that place Perez-uzzah (which means "to burst out against Uzzah"), as it is still called today.H1732H2734H3068H6555H6556H5798H4725H7121H6560H3117 12David was now afraid of God, and he asked, "How can I ever bring the Ark of God back into my care?"H1732H3372H430H3117H559H1963H935H727H430 13So David did not move the Ark into the City of David. Instead, he took it to the house of Obed-edom of Gath.H1732H5493H727H5892H1732H5186H1004H5654H1663 14The Ark of God remained there in Obed-edom's house for three months, and the LORD blessed the household of Obed-edom and everything he owned.H727H430H3427H1004H5654H1004H7969H2320H3068H1288H1004H5654
