Second Samuel 6


6:1 Again, David assembled all [the] chosen [men] of Israel,
 thirty thousand,
6:2 And David arose, and went with all the people that [were]
 with him from Baale of Judah, to bring up from thence the ark
 of God, whose name is called by the name of the LORD of hosts
 that dwelleth [between] the cherubim.
6:3 And they set the ark of God upon a new cart, and brought it
 out of the house of Abinadab that [was] in Gibeah: and Uzzah
 and Ahio the sons of Abinadab drove the new cart.
6:4 And they brought it out of the house of Abinadab, which
 [was] at Gibeah, accompanying the ark of God: and Ahio went
 before the ark.
6:5 And David and all the house of Israel played before the LORD
 on all manner of [instruments made of] fir wood, even on harps,
 and on psalteries, and on timbrels, and on cornets, and on
 cymbals.
6:6 And when they came to Nachon's threshing-floor, Uzzah put
 forth [his hand] to the ark of God, and took hold of it: for
 the oxen shook [it].
6:7 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzzah, and God
 smote him there for [his] error; and there he died by the ark
 of God.
6:8 And David was displeased, because the LORD had made a breach
 upon Uzzah: and he called the name of the place Perez-uzzah to
 this day.
6:9 And David was afraid of the LORD that day, and said, How
 shall the ark of the LORD come to me?
6:10 So David would not remove the ark of the LORD to him into
 the city of David: but David carried it aside into the house of
 Obed-edom the Gittite.
6:11 And the ark of the LORD continued in the house of Obed-edom
 the Gittite three months: and the LORD blessed Obed-edom and
 all his household.
6:12 And it was told king David, saying, The LORD hath blessed
 the house of Obed-edom, and all that [pertaineth] to him,
 because of the ark of God. So David went and brought up the ark
 of God from the house of Obed-edom into the city of David with
 gladness.
6:13 And it was [so], that when they that bore the ark of the
 LORD had gone six paces, he sacrificed oxen and fatlings.
6:14 And David danced before the LORD with all [his] might; and
 David [was] girded with a linen ephod.
6:15 So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of
 the LORD with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet.
6:16 And as the ark of the LORD came into the city of David,
 Michal, Saul's daughter, looked through a window, and saw king
 David leaping and dancing before the LORD; and she despised him
 in her heart.
6:17 And they brought in the ark of the LORD, and set it in its
 place, in the midst of the tabernacle that David had pitched
 for it: and David offered burnt-offerings and peace-offerings
 before the LORD.
6:18 And as soon as David had made an end of offering
 burnt-offerings and peace-offerings, he blessed the people in
 the name of the LORD of hosts.
6:19 And he dealt among all the people, [even] among the whole
 multitude of Israel, as well to the women as men, to every one
 a cake of bread, and a good piece [of flesh], and a flagon [of
 wine]. So all the people departed every one to his house.
6:20 Then David returned to bless his household. And Michal the
 daughter of Saul came out to meet David, and said, How glorious
 was the king of Israel to-day, who uncovered himself to-day in
 the eyes of the handmaids of his servants, as one of the vain
 fellows shamelessly uncovereth himself!
6:21 And David said to Michal, [It was] before the LORD, who
 chose me before thy father, and before all his house, to
 appoint me ruler over the people of the LORD, over Israel:
 therefore will I play before the LORD.
6:22 And I shall yet be more vile than thus, and shall be base
 in my own sight: and by the maid-servants which thou hast
 spoken of, by them shall I be had in honor.
6:23 Therefore Michal the daughter of Saul had no child until
 the day of her death.
