1 Chronicles

The Ark is moved from Kiriath Jearim.  1Chr.13.1-14 - 2Sm.6.1-11

1DAVID CONSULTED THE OFFICERS over units of a thousand and a hundred on every matter brought forward. 2Then he said to the whole assembly of Israel, 'If you approve, and if the LORD our God opens a way, let us and if ... let us: or and if it is from the LORD our God, let us seize the opportunity and send to our kinsmen who have stayed behind, in all the districts of Israel, and also to the priests and Levites in the cities where they have common lands, bidding them join us. 3Let us fetch the Ark of our God, for while Saul lived we never resorted to it.' 4The whole assembly resolved to do this; the entire nation approved it.

5So David assembled all Israel from the Shihor in Egypt to Lebo-hamath, in order to fetch the Ark of God from Kiriath-jearim. 6 vv6-14: cp 2Sam. 6.2-11 Then David and all Israel went up to Baalah, to Kiriath-jearim, which belonged to Judah, to fetch the Ark of God, the LORD enthroned upon the cherubim, the Ark which bore his name which bore his name: prob. rdg, Heb obscure. 7And they conveyed the Ark of God on a new cart from the house of Abinadab, with Uzza and Ahio guiding the cart. 8David and all Israel danced for joy before God without restraint to the sound of singing, of harps and lutes, of tambourines, and cymbals and trumpets. 9But when they came to the threshing-floor of Kidon, the oxen stumbled, and Uzza put out his hand to hold the Ark. 10The LORD was angry with Uzza and struck him down because he had put out his hand to the Ark. So he died there before God. 11David was vexed because the LORD's anger had broken out upon Uzza, and he called the place Perez-uzza That is Outbreak on Uzza, the name it still bears. 12David was afraid of God that day and said, 'How can I harbour the Ark of God after this?' 13So he did not take the Ark with him into the City of David, but turned aside and carried it to the house of Obed-edom the Gittite. 14Thus the Ark of God remained beside the house of Obed-edom, in its tent Or in his tent, for three months, and the LORD blessed the family of Obed-edom and all that he had.
