David again brought together out of Israel chosen men, thirty thousand in all.
He and all his men set out from Baalah1 of Judaha to bring up from there the ark2 of God, which is called by the Name,b3 the name of the LORD Almighty, who is enthroned4 between the cherubim5 that are on the ark.
They set the ark of God on a new cart6 and brought it from the house of Abinadab, which was on the hill.7 Uzzah and Ahio, sons of Abinadab, were guiding the new cart
with the ark of God on it,c and Ahio was walking in front of it.
David and the whole house of Israel were celebrating8 with all their might before the LORD, with songsd and with harps, lyres, tambourines, sistrums and cymbals.9
