The Ark of God – 2 Samuel 6

2 Samuel 6:1 Again, David gathered together all the chosen  men of Israel, thirty thousand. 

2 Samuel 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 cherubims. 

2 Samuel 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, drave the new cart. 

2 Samuel 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. 

2 Samuel 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.   

2 Samuel 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. 

2 Samuel 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.  

2 Samuel 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. 

2 Samuel 6:9 And David was afraid  of the LORD that day, and said, How shall the ark of the  LORD come to me? 

2 Samuel 6:10 So David would not remove the  ark of the LORD unto him into the city of David: but David  carried it aside into the house of Obed-edom the Gittite.  

2 Samuel 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.  


2 Samuel 6:12 And it was told king David, saying, The LORD  hath blessed the house of Obed- edom, and all that  pertaineth unto him, because of the ark of God. So David  went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obededom  into the city of David with gladness. 

2 Samuel 6:13 And it  was so, that when they that bare the ark of the LORD had  gone six paces, he sacrificed oxen and fatlings. 

2 Samuel 6:14 And  David danced before the LORD with all his might; and  David was girded with a linen ephod. 

2 Samuel 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. 

2 Samuel 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.  

2 Samuel 6:17 And they brought in the ark of the LORD, and set  it in his place, in the midst of the tabernacle that David had  pitched for it: and David offered burnt offerings and peace  offerings before the LORD. 

2 Samuel 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. 

2 Samuel 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.  

2 Samuel 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 today, who  uncovered himself to day in the eyes of the handmaids of  his servants, as one of the vain fellows shamelessly  uncovereth himself! 

2 Samuel 6:21 And David said unto Michal, It  was before the LORD, which 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. 

2 Samuel 6:22 And I will yet be more vile than thus, and  will be base in mine own sight: and of the maidservants  which thou hast spoken of, of them shall I be had in honour.  

2 Samuel 6:23 Therefore Michal the daughter of Saul had no child  unto the day of her death.
