1 H6213 [H8799] And David built H1004 houses H5892 for himself in the city H1732 of David, H3559 [H8686] and prepared H4725 a place H727 for the ark H430 of God, H5186 [H8799] and pitched H168 for it a tent.
2 H1732 Then David H559 [H8804] said, H5375 [H8800] None ought to carry H727 the ark H430 of God H3881 but the Levites: H3068 for them hath the LORD H977 [H8804] chosen H5375 [H8800] to carry H727 the ark H430 of God, H8334 [H8763] and to minister H5704 to him for H5769 ever.
3 H1732 And David H6950 [H8686] congregated H3605 all H3478 Israel H3389 to Jerusalem, H5927 [H8687] to bring up H727 the ark H3068 of the LORD H4725 to its place, H3559 [H8689] which he had prepared for it.
5 H1121 Of the sons H6955 of Kohath; H222 Uriel H8269 the chief, H251 and his brethren H3967 an hundred H6242 and twenty:
6 H1121 Of the sons H4847 of Merari; H6222 Asaiah H8269 the chief, H251 and his brethren H3967 two hundred H6242 and twenty:
7 H1121 Of the sons H1647 of Gershom; H3100 Joel H8269 the chief, H251 and his brethren H3967 an hundred H7970 and thirty:
8 H1121 Of the sons H469 of Elizaphan; H8098 Shemaiah H8269 the chief, H251 and his brethren H3967 two hundred:
9 H1121 Of the sons H2275 of Hebron; H447 Eliel H8269 the chief, H251 and his brethren H8084 eighty:
10 H1121 Of the sons H5816 of Uzziel; H5992 Amminadab H8269 the chief, H251 and his brethren H3967 an hundred H8147 H6240 and twelve.
11 H1732 And David H7121 [H8799] 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 [H8799] And said H7218 to them, Ye are the heads H1 of the fathers H3881 of the Levites: H6942 [H8690] sanctify H251 yourselves, both ye and your brethren, H5927 [H8689] that ye may bring up H727 the ark H3068 of the LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel H3559 [H8689] to the place that I have prepared for it.
13 H7223 For because ye did it not at the first, H3068 the LORD H430 our God H6555 [H8804] broke forth H1875 [H8804] upon us, for that we sought H4941 him not after the proper way.
14 H3548 So the priests H3881 and the Levites H6942 [H8691] sanctified H5927 [H8687] themselves to bring up H727 the ark H3068 of the LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel.
15 H1121 And the sons H3881 of the Levites H5375 [H8799] bore H727 the ark H430 of God H3802 upon their shoulders H4133 with the staffs H4872 on it, as Moses H6680 [H8765] commanded H1697 according to the word H3068 of the LORD.
16 H1732 And David H559 [H8799] spoke H8269 to the leaders H3881 of the Levites H5975 [H8687] to appoint H251 their brethren H7891 [H8789] to be the singers H3627 with instruments H7892 of music, H5035 psalteries H3658 and harps H4700 and cymbals, H8085 [H8688] sounding, H7311 [H8687] by lifting up H6963 the voice H8057 with joy.
17 H3881 So the Levites H5975 [H8686] appointed H1968 Heman H1121 the son H3100 of Joel; H251 and of his brethren, H623 Asaph H1121 the son H1296 of Berechiah; H1121 and of the sons H4847 of Merari H251 their brethren, H387 Ethan H1121 the son H6984 of Kushaiah;
18 H251 And with them their brethren 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 Elipheleh, H4737 and Mikneiah, H5654 and Obededom, H3273 and Jeiel, H7778 the porters.
19 H7891 [H8789] So the singers, H1968 Heman, H623 Asaph, H387 and Ethan, H8085 [H8687] were appointed to sound H4700 with cymbals H5178 of brass;
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 psalteries H5961 on Alamoth;
21 H4993 And Mattithiah, H466 and Elipheleh, H4737 and Mikneiah, H5654 and Obededom, H3273 and Jeiel, H5812 and Azaziah, H3658 with harps H8067 on the Sheminith H5329 [H8763] to lead.
22 H3663 And Chenaniah, H8269 leader H3881 of the Levites, H4853 was for song: H3256 he instructed H4853 about the song, H995 [H8688] because he was skilful.
24 H7645 And Shebaniah, H3146 and Jehoshaphat, H5417 and Nethaneel, H6022 and Amasai, H2148 and Zechariah, H1141 and Benaiah, H461 and Eliezer, H3548 the priests, H2690 H2690 [H8688] did blow H2689 with the trumpets H6440 at the face of H727 the ark H430 of God: H5654 and Obededom 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 [H8802] went H5927 [H8687] to bring up H727 the ark H1285 of the covenant H3068 of the LORD H1004 from the house H5654 of Obededom H8057 with joy.
26 H430 And it came to pass, when God H5826 [H8800] helped H3881 the Levites H5375 [H8802] that bore H727 the ark H1285 of the covenant H3068 of the LORD, H2076 [H8799] that they offered H7651 seven H6499 bulls H7651 and seven H352 rams.
27 H1732 And David H3736 [H8794] was clothed H4598 with a robe H948 of fine linen, H3881 and all the Levites H5375 [H8802] that bore H727 the ark, H7891 [H8789] and the singers, H3663 and Chenaniah H8269 the master H4853 of the song H7891 [H8789] with the singers: H1732 David H646 also had upon him an ephod H906 of linen.
28 H3478 Thus all Israel H5927 [H8688] brought up H727 the ark H1285 of the covenant H3068 of the LORD H8643 with shouting, H6963 and with sound H7782 of the shofar, H2689 and with trumpets, H4700 and with cymbals, H8085 [H8688] making a noise H5035 with psalteries H3658 and harps.
29 H727 And it came to pass, as the ark H1285 of the covenant H3068 of the LORD H935 [H8804] came H5892 to the city H1732 of David, H4324 that Michal H1323 the daughter H7586 of Saul H8259 [H8738] looking out H2474 at a window H7200 [H8799] saw H4428 king H1732 David H7540 [H8764] dancing H7832 [H8764] and playing: H959 [H8799] and she despised H3820 him in her heart.
