2 David said to all the assembly of Israel, "If it seems good to you, and if it is from the LORD our God, let us send everywhere to our kinsmen who remain in all the land of Israel, also to the priests and Levites who are with them in their cities with pasture lands, that they may meet with us;

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:

2 Then he said to the whole assembly of Israel, "If it seems good to you, and if this is from the Lord our God, let us spread out and send the message to the rest of our relatives in all the districts of Israel, including the priests and Levites in their cities with pasturelands, that they should gather together with us.

2 Then he addressed the entire community of Israel, "If it seems good to you and something from the Lord our God, let's spread word to all of our relatives who remain throughout the entire land of Israel, including the priests and descendants of Levi in the cities and pasture lands, so they can gather together with us.

2 And David said to all the assembly of Israel, If it seems good to you and if it is of the Lord our God, let us send abroad everywhere to our brethren who are left in all the land of Israel, and with them to the priests and Levites in their cities that have suburbs and pasturelands, that they may gather together with us.

3 and let us bring back the ark of our God to us, for we did not seek it in the days of Saul."

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

3 Then let us bring back the ark of our God, for we did not inquire of Him in Saul's days."

3 Then let's bring the Ark of God back to us, because we didn't consult it during Saul's reign."

3 And let us bring again the ark of our God to us, for we did not seek it during the days of Saul.

4 Then all the assembly said that they would do so, for the thing was right in the eyes of all the people.

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

4 Since the proposal seemed right to all the people, the whole assembly agreed to do it.

4 The entire community consented, because doing so pleased all the people.

9 When they came to the threshing floor of Chidon, Uzza put out his hand to hold the ark, because the oxen nearly upset it.

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

9 When they came to Chidon's threshing floor, Uzzah reached out to hold the ark, because the oxen had stumbled.

9 As they approached Chidon's threshing floor, Uzzah put out his hand to steady the ark, because the oxen had stumbled.

9 And when they came to the threshing floor of Chidon, Uzza put out his hand to steady the ark, for the oxen [that were drawing the cart] stumbled and were restive.

10 The anger of the LORD burned against Uzza, so He struck him down because he put out his hand to the ark; and he died there before God.

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.

10 Then the Lord's anger burned against Uzzah, and He struck him dead because he had reached out to the ark. So he died there in the presence of God.

10 Just then, the anger of the LORD blazed against Uzzah, and he struck him down because he had put his hand on the ark, and he died right there in the presence of God.

10 And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Uzza, and He smote him because he touched the ark; and there he died before God.

11 Then David became angry because of the LORD'S outburst against Uzza; and he called that place Perez-uzza to this day.

11 And David was displeased, because the LORD had made a breach upon Uzza: wherefore that place is called Perezuzza to this day.

11 David was angry because of the Lord's outburst against Uzzah, so he named that place Outburst Against Uzzah, as it is [still named] today.

11 David flew into a rage because the LORD had killed Uzzah. As a result, that place was called Perez-uzzah to this day.

11 And David was offended because the Lord had broken forth upon Uzza; that place to this day is called Perez-uzza [the breaking forth upon Uzza].

12 David was afraid of God that day, saying, "How can I bring the ark of God home to me?"

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

12 David feared God that day, and said, "How can I ever bring the ark of God to me?"

12 But David feared God that day, and asked "How am I to bring the Ark of God to me?"

13 So David did not take the ark with him to the city of David, but took it aside to the house of Obed-edom the Gittite.

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.
