1 H6213 David made H1004 him houses H5892 in the city H1732 of David; H3559 and he prepared H4725 a place H727 for the ark H430 of God, H5186 and pitched H168 for it a tent.
2 H1732 Then David H559 said, H5375 "No one ought to carry H727 the ark H430 of God H3881 but the Levites. H3068 For Yahweh H977 has chosen H5375 them to carry H727 the ark H430 of God, H8334 and to minister H5704 to him H5769 forever."
3 H1732 David H6950 assembled H3478 all Israel H6950 at H3389 Jerusalem, H5927 to bring up H727 the ark H3068 of Yahweh H4725 to its place, H3559 which he had prepared for it.
5 H1121 of the sons H6955 of Kohath, H222 Uriel H8269 the chief, H251 and his brothers H3967 one hundred H6242 twenty;
6 H1121 of the sons H4847 of Merari, H6222 Asaiah H8269 the chief, H251 and his brothers H3967 two hundred H6242 twenty;
7 H1121 of the sons H1647 of Gershom, H3100 Joel H8269 the chief, H251 and his brothers H3967 one hundred H7970 thirty;
8 H1121 of the sons H469 of Elizaphan, H8098 Shemaiah H8269 the chief, H251 and his brothers H3967 two hundred;
9 H1121 of the sons H2275 of Hebron, H447 Eliel H8269 the chief, H251 and his brothers H8084 eighty;
10 H1121 of the sons H5816 of Uzziel, H5992 Amminadab H8269 the chief, H251 and his brothers H3967 one hundred H8147 twelve.
11 H1732 David H7121 called H6659 for Zadok H54 and Abiathar H3548 the priests, H3881 and for the Levites, H222 for Uriel, H6222 Asaiah, H3100 and Joel, H8098 Shemaiah, H447 and Eliel, H5992 and Amminadab,
12 H559 and said H7218 to them, "You are the heads H1 of the fathers' H3881 households of the Levites. H6942 Sanctify H251 yourselves, both you and your brothers, H5927 that you may bring up H727 the ark H3068 of Yahweh, H430 the God H3478 of Israel, H3559 to the place that I have prepared for it.
13 H7223 For because you didn't carry it at first, H3068 Yahweh H430 our God H6555 made broke H1875 out against us, because we didn't seek H4941 him according to the ordinance."
14 H3548 So the priests H3881 and the Levites H6942 sanctified H5927 themselves to bring up H727 the ark H3068 of Yahweh, H430 the God H3478 of Israel.
15 H1121 The children H3881 of the Levites H5375 bore H727 the ark H430 of God H3802 on their shoulders H4133 with the poles H4872 thereon, as Moses H6680 commanded H1697 according to the word H3068 of Yahweh.
16 H1732 David H559 spoke H8269 to the chief H3881 of the Levites H5975 to appoint H251 their brothers H7891 the singers, H3627 with instruments H7892 of music, H3627 stringed instruments H3658 and harps H4700 and cymbals, H8085 sounding H7311 aloud and lifting up H6963 the voice H8057 with joy.
17 H3881 So the Levites H5975 appointed H1968 Heman H1121 the son H3100 of Joel; H251 and of his brothers, H623 Asaph H1121 the son H1296 of Berechiah; H1121 and of the sons H4847 of Merari H251 their brothers, H387 Ethan H1121 the son H6984 of Kushaiah;
18 H251 and with them their brothers H4932 of the second H2148 degree, Zechariah, H1122 Ben, H3268 and Jaaziel, H8070 and Shemiramoth, H3171 and Jehiel, H6042 and Unni, H446 Eliab, H1141 and Benaiah, H4641 and Maaseiah, H4993 and Mattithiah, H466 and Eliphelehu, H4737 and Mikneiah, H5654 and Obed-Edom, H3273 and Jeiel, H7778 the doorkeepers.
19 H7891 So the singers, H1968 Heman, H623 Asaph, H387 and Ethan, H4700 were given cymbals H5178 of brass H8085 to sound aloud;
20 H2148 and Zechariah, H5815 and Aziel, H8070 and Shemiramoth, H3171 and Jehiel, H6042 and Unni, H446 and Eliab, H4641 and Maaseiah, H1141 and Benaiah, H5035 with stringed instruments H5961 set to Alamoth;
21 H4993 and Mattithiah, H466 and Eliphelehu, H4737 and Mikneiah, H5654 and Obed-Edom, H3273 and Jeiel, H5812 and Azaziah, H3658 with harps H8067 tuned to the eight-stringed lyre, H5329 to lead.
22 H3663 Chenaniah, H8269 chief H3881 of the Levites, H4853 was over the song: H3256 he instructed H4853 about the song, H995 because he was skillful.
24 H7645 Shebaniah, H3146 and Joshaphat, H5417 and Nethanel, H6022 and Amasai, H2148 and Zechariah, H1141 and Benaiah, H461 and Eliezer, H3548 the priests, H2690 blew H2689 the trumpets H6440 before H727 the ark H430 of God: H5654 and Obed-Edom H3174 and Jehiah H7778 were doorkeepers H727 for the ark.
25 H1732 So David, H2205 and the elders H3478 of Israel, H8269 and the captains H505 over thousands, H1980 went H5927 to bring up H727 the ark H1285 of the covenant H3068 of Yahweh H1004 out of the house H5654 of Obed-Edom H8057 with joy.
26 H430 It happened, when God H5826 helped H3881 the Levites H5375 who bore H727 the ark H1285 of the covenant H3068 of Yahweh, H2076 that they sacrificed H7651 seven H6499 bulls H7651 and seven H352 rams.
27 H1732 David H3736 was clothed H4598 with a robe H948 of fine linen, H3881 and all the Levites H5375 who bore H727 the ark, H7891 and the singers, H3663 and Chenaniah H8269 the master H4853 of the song H7891 with the singers: H1732 and David H646 had on him an ephod H906 of linen.
28 H3478 Thus all Israel H5927 brought up H727 the ark H1285 of the covenant H3068 of Yahweh H8643 with shouting, H6963 and with sound H7782 of the cornet, H2689 and with trumpets, H4700 and with cymbals, H8085 sounding aloud H5035 with stringed instruments H3658 and harps.
29 H727 It happened, as the ark H1285 of the covenant H3068 of Yahweh H935 came H5892 to the city H1732 of David, H4324 that Michal H1323 the daughter H7586 of Saul H8259 looked out H2474 at the window, H7200 and saw H4428 king H1732 David H7540 dancing H7832 and playing; H959 and she despised H3820 him in her heart.
