The Obededom Blessing - 1st Chronicles 13

1 Chronicles 13:1 And David consulted with the captains of  thousands and hundreds, and with every leader. 

1 Chronicles 13:2  And David said unto all the congregation of Israel, If it  seem good unto you, and that it be of the LORD our God,  let us send abroad unto our brethren every where, that are  left in all the land of Israel, and with them also to the  priests and Levites which are in their cities and suburbs,  that they may gather themselves unto us: 

1 Chronicles 13:3 And let us  bring again the ark of our God to us: for we enquired not at  it in the days of Saul. 

1 Chronicles 13:4 And all the congregation said  that they would do so: for the thing was right in the eyes of  all the people. 

1 Chronicles 13:5 So David gathered all Israel together,  from Shihor of Egypt even unto the entering of Hemath, to  bring the ark of God from Kirjath-jearim. 

1 Chronicles 13:6 And  David went up, and all Israel, to Baalah, that is, to Kirjathjearim,  which belonged to Judah, to bring up thence the  ark of God the LORD, that dwelleth between the  cherubims, whose name is called on it. 

1 Chronicles 13:7 And they  carried the ark of God in a new cart out of the house of  Abinadab: and Uzza and Ahio drave the cart. 

1 Chronicles 13:8 And  David and all Israel played before God with all their  might, and with singing, and with harps, and with psalteries,  and with timbrels, and with cymbals, and with trumpets.  

1 Chronicles 13:9 And when they came unto the threshingfloor of  Chidon, Uzza put forth his hand to hold the ark; for the  oxen stumbled. 

1 Chronicles 13:10 And the anger of the LORD was  kindled against Uzza, and he smote him, because he put his hand to the ark: and there he died before God. 

1 Chronicles 13:11 And  David was displeased, because the LORD had made a  breach upon Uzza: wherefore that place is called Perez-uzza  to this day. 

1 Chronicles 13:12 And David was afraid of God that day,  saying, How shall I bring the ark of God home to me?   

1 Chronicles 13:13 So David brought not the ark home to himself to  the city of David, but carried it aside into the house of Obededom  the Gittite. 

1 Chronicles 13:14 And the ark of God remained  with the family of Obed-edom in his house three months.  And the LORD blessed the house of Obed-edom, and all  that he had. KJV
