2 Samuel 6

CLV(i) 1 And David gathered again every chosen one in Israel, thirty thousand, 2 and David rises and goes, and all the people who [are] with him, from Baale-Judah, to bring up thence the ark of Elohim, whose name has been called--the name of Yahweh of Hosts, inhabiting the cherubs--upon it. 3 And they cause the ark of Elohim to ride on a new cart, and lift it up from the house of Abinadab, which [is] in the height, and Uzzah and Ahio sons of Abinadab are leading the new cart;" 4 and they lift it up from the house of Abinadab, which [is] in the height, with the ark of Elohim, and Ahio is going before the ark, 5 and David and all the house of Israel are playing before Yahweh, with all kinds of [instruments] of fir-wood, even with harps, and with psalteries, and with timbrels, and with cornets, and with cymbals. 6 And they come unto the threshing-floor of Nachon, and Uzzah puts forth [his hand] unto the ark of Elohim, and lays hold on it, for they released the oxen;" 7 and the anger of Yahweh burns against Uzzah, and Elohim smites him there for the error, and he dies there by the ark of Elohim. 8 And it is displeasing to David, because that Yahweh has broken forth a breach upon Uzzah, and [one] calls that place Perez-Uzzah, unto this day;" 9 and David fears Yahweh on that day, and said, `How does the ark of Yahweh come in unto me?. 10 And David has not been willing to turn aside unto himself the ark of Yahweh, to the city of David, and David turns it aside to the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite, 11 and the ark of Yahweh does inhabit the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite three months, and Yahweh blesses Obed-Edom and all his house. 12 And it is declared to king David, saying, `Yahweh has blessed the house of Obed-Edom, and all that he has, because of the ark of Elohim;' and David goes and brings up the ark of Elohim from the house of Obed-Edom to the city of David with joy. 13 And it comes to pass, when those bearing the ark of Yahweh have stepped six steps, that he sacrifices an ox and a fatling. 14 And David is dancing with all strength before Yahweh, and David is girded with a linen ephod, 15 and David and all the house of Israel are bringing up the ark of Yahweh with shouting, and with the voice of a trumpet, 16 and it has come to pass, the ark of Yahweh has come in to the city of David, and Michal daughter of Saul, has looked through the window, and sees king David moving and dancing before Yahweh, and despises him in her heart. 17 And they bring in the ark of Yahweh, and set it up in its place, in the midst of the tent which David has spread out for it, and David causes to ascend burnt-offerings before Yahweh, and peace-offerings. 18 And David finishes from causing to ascend the burnt-offering, and the peace-offerings, and blesses the people in the name of Yahweh of Hosts, 19 and he apportions to all the people, to all the multitude of Israel, from man even unto woman, to each, one cake of bread, and one eshpar, and one ashisha, and all the people go, each to his house. 20 And David turns back to bless his house, and Michal daughter of Saul goes out to meet David, and said, `How honorable to-day was the king of Israel, who was uncovered to-day before the eyes of the handmaids of his servants, as one of the vain ones is openly uncovered!. 21 And David said unto Michal, `--Before Yahweh, who fixed on me above your father, and above all his house, to appoint me leader over the people of Yahweh, and over Israel, --yea, I played before Yahweh;" 22 and I have been more vile than this, and have been low in mine eyes, and with the handmaids whom you have spoken of, with them I am honored.. 23 As to Michal daughter of Saul, she had no child till the day of her death.
