1 And David will counsel with the chiefs of the thousands and the hundreds, to every leader. 2 And David will say to all the convocation of Israel, If good to you, and from Jehovah our God, we will break forth, we will send to all our brethren being left in all the lands of Israel; and with them the priests and the Levites in the cities of their areas, and they shall gather together to us. 3 And we will turn about the ark of our God to us: for we sought it not in the days of Saul. 4 And all the convocation will say to do thus: for the word was straight in the eyes of all the people.
5 And David will convoke together all Israel from Sihor of Egypt and even to the going in of Hamath, to bring in the ark of God from the cities of the forests. 6 And David will go up, and all Israel, to Baalah, to the cities of the forests which were to Judah, to bring up from thence the ark of God Jehovah dwelling in the cherubims, which the name was called. 7 And they caused the ark of God to ride upon a new wagon from the house of Abinadab: and Uzza and his brethren conducting in the wagon.
8 And David and all Israel playing before God with all strength, and with songs and with harps, and with lyres, and with drums, and with cymbals, and with trumpets. 9 And they will come to the threshing-floor of Chidon, and Uzza will stretch forth his hand to hold firm the ark; for the oxen thrust it 10 And the anger of Jehovah will be kindled against Uzza, and he will strike him for that he stretched forth his hand upon the ark: and he will die their before God.
11 And it will kindle to David because Jehovah broke forth a breach upon Uzza: and he will call to this place, This the Breach of Uzza, even to this day. 12 And David will fear God in that day, saying, How shall I bring to me the ark of God? 13 And David removed not the ark of God from the city of David, and he will turn it away to the house of Obed-Edom the Gathite.
14 And the ark of God will dwell with the house of Obed-Edom in his house three months. And Jehovah will bless the house of Obed-Edom, and all which is to him.
