Transfer of the Ark. 1 c 1–14: 2 Sm 6, 1–11 . After David had taken counsel with his commanders of thousands and of hundreds, that is to say, with every one of his leaders, 2he said to the whole assembly of Israel: “If it seems good to you, and is so decreed by the LORD our God, let us summon the rest of our brethren from all the districts of Israel, and also the priests and the Levites from their cities with pasture lands, that they may join us; d Nm 35, 1ff; Jos 14, 4; 21, 2ff . 3and let us bring the ark of our God here among us, for in the days of Saul we did not visit it.” 4And the whole assembly agreed to do this, for the idea was pleasing to all the people.

5Then David assembled all Israel, from Shihor of Egypt* to Labo of Hamath, to bring the ark of God from Kiriath‐jearim. e 1 Chr 15, 3; Jos 13, 3. 5; 1 Sm 6, 21; 7, 1f; 2 Sm 6, 1–11 . 6David and all Israel went up to Baalah, that is, to Kiriath‐jearim, of Judah, to bring back the ark of God, which was known by the name “LORD enthroned upon the cherubim.” f Jos 15, 9; 18, 14; 1 Sm 4, 4; 7, 1 . 7They transported the ark of God on a new cart from the house of Abinadab; Uzzah and Ahio were guiding the cart, 8while David and all Israel danced before God with great enthusiasm, amid songs and music on lyres, harps, tambourines, cymbals, and trumpets.

9As they reached the threshing floor of Chidon,* Uzzah stretched out his hand to steady the ark, for the oxen were upsetting it. 10Then the LORD became angry with Uzzah and struck him; he died there in God's presence, because he had laid his hand on the ark. 11David was disturbed because the LORD's anger had broken out against Uzzah. Therefore that place has been called Perezuzza* even to this day.

12David was now afraid of God, and he said, “How can I bring the ark of God with me?” 13Therefore he did not take the ark back with him to the City of David, but he took it instead to the house of Obed edom the Gittite. 14The ark of God remained in the house of Obed edom with his family for three months, and the LORD blessed Obed edom's household and all that he possessed. g 1 Chr 26, 4f .
