1 H1732 Again, David H622 gathered together H977 all the chosen H3478 men of Israel, H7970 thirty H505 thousand.
2 H1732 And David H6965 arose, H3212 and went H5971 with all the people H1184 that were with him from Baale of Judah, H5927 to bring up H727 from there the ark H430 of God, H8034 whose name H7121 is called H8034 by the name H3068 of the Lord H6635 of hosts H3427 that dwells H3742 between the cherubims.
3 H7392 And they set H727 the ark H430 of God H2319 upon a new H5699 cart, H5375 and brought H1004 it out of the house H41 of Abinadab H1390 that was in Gibeah: H5798 and Uzzah H283 and Ahio, H1121 the sons H41 of Abinadab, H5090 drove H2319 the new H5699 cart.
4 H5375 And they brought H1004 it out of the house H41 of Abinadab H1390 which was at Gibeah, H5973 accompanying H727 the ark H430 of God: H283 and Ahio H1980 went H6440 before H727 the ark.
5 H1732 And David H1004 and all the house H3478 of Israel H7832 played H6440 before H3068 the Lord H1265 on all manner of instruments made of fir H6086 wood, H3658 even on harps, H5035 and on psalteries, H8596 and on tambourines, H4517 and on cornets, H6767 and on cymbals.
6 H935 And when they came H5225 to Nachon's H1637 threshingfloor, H5798 Uzzah H7971 put forth H727 his hand to the ark H430 of God, H270 and took hold H1241 of it; for the oxen H8058 shook it.
7 H639 And the anger H3068 of the Lord H2734 was kindled H5798 against Uzzah; H430 and God H5221 struck H7944 him there for his error; H4191 and there he died H727 by the ark H430 of God.
8 H1732 And David H2734 was displeased, H3068 because the Lord H6555 had made H6556 a breach H5798 upon Uzzah: H7121 and he called H4725 the name of the place H6560 Perez–uzzah H3117 to this day.
9 H1732 And David H3372 was afraid H3068 of the Lord H3117 that day, H559 and said, H727 How shall the ark H3068 of the Lord H935 come to me?
10 H1732 So David H14 would H5493 not remove H727 the ark H3068 of the Lord H5892 unto him into the city H1732 of David: H1732 but David H5186 carried it aside H1004 into the house H5654 of Obed–edom H1663 the Gittite.
11 H727 And the ark H3068 of the Lord H3427 continued H1004 in the house H5654 of Obed–edom H1663 the Gittite H7969 three H2320 months: H3068 and the Lord H1288 blessed H5654 Obed–edom, H1004 and all his household.
12 H5046 And it was told H4428 king H1732 David, H559 saying, H3068 The Lord H1288 has blessed H1004 the house H5654 of Obed–edom, H727 and all that pertains unto him, because of the ark H430 of God. H1732 So David H3212 went H5927 and brought up H727 the ark H430 of God H1004 from the house H5654 of Obed–edom H5892 into the city H1732 of David H8057 with gladness.
13 H5375 And it was so, that when they that bore H727 the ark H3068 of the Lord H6805 had gone H8337 six H6806 paces, H2076 he sacrificed H7794 oxen H4806 and fatlings.
14 H1732 And David H3769 danced H6440 before H3068 the Lord H5797 with all his might; H1732 and David H2296 was girded H906 with a linen H646 ephod.
15 H1732 So David H1004 and all the house H3478 of Israel H5927 brought up H727 the ark H3068 of the Lord H8643 with shouting, H6963 and with the sound H7782 of the trumpet.
16 H727 And as the ark H3068 of the Lord H935 came H5892 into the city H1732 of David, H4324 Michal H7586 Saul's H1323 daughter H8259 looked H2474 through a window, H7200 and saw H4428 king H1732 David H6339 leaping H3769 and dancing H6440 before H3068 the Lord; H959 and she despised H3820 him in her heart.
17 H935 And they brought H727 in the ark H3068 of the Lord, H3322 and set H4725 it in his place, H8432 in the middle H168 of the tabernacle H1732 that David H5186 had pitched H1732 for it: and David H5927 offered H5930 burnt offerings H8002 and peace offerings H6440 before H3068 the Lord.
18 H1732 And as soon as David H3615 had made an end H5927 of offering H5930 burnt offerings H8002 and peace offerings, H1288 he blessed H5971 the people H8034 in the name H3068 of the Lord H6635 of hosts.
19 H2505 And he dealt H5971 among all the people, H1995 even among the whole multitude H3478 of Israel, H802 as well to the women H376 as men, H376 to every one H259 a H2471 cake H3899 of bread, H829 and a good piece H809 of flesh, and a flagon H5971 of wine. So all the people H3212 departed H376 every one H1004 to his house.
20 H1732 Then David H7725 returned H1288 to bless H1004 his household. H4324 And Michal H1323 the daughter H7586 of Saul H3318 came out H7125 to meet H1732 David, H559 and said, H3513 How glorious H4428 was the king H3478 of Israel H3117 to day, H1540 who uncovered H3117 himself to day H5869 in the eyes H519 of the handmaids H5650 of his servants, H259 as one H7386 of the vain fellows H1540 shamelessly H1540 uncovers himself!
21 H1732 And David H559 said H4324 unto Michal, H6440 It was before H3068 the Lord, H977 which chose H1 me before your father, H1004 and before all his house, H6680 to appoint H5057 me ruler H5971 over the people H3068 of the Lord, H3478 over Israel: H7832 therefore will I play H6440 before H3068 the Lord.
22 H7043 And I will yet be more contemptible H2063 than thus, H8217 and will be lowly H5869 in my own sight: H519 but of the maidservants H559 which you have spoken H3513 of, of them shall I be had in honor.
