And the ark of the LORDcontinued in the house of Obededom the Gittitethreemonths: and the LORDblessedObededom, and all his household.12
And it was toldkingDavid,saying , The LORD hath blessed the house of Obededom, and all that pertaineth unto him, because of the ark of God. So Davidwent and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obededom into the city of David with gladness.13
And it was so, that when they that bare the ark of the LORD had gonesixpaces, he sacrificedoxen and fatlings.14
And Daviddancedbefore the LORD with all his might; and David was girded with a linenephod.15
So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the LORD with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet.16
And as the ark of the LORDcame into the city of David,MichalSaul'sdaughterlooked through a window, and sawkingDavidleaping and dancingbefore the LORD; and she despised him in her heart.17
And they brought in the ark of the LORD, and set it in his place, in the midst of the tabernacle that David had pitcheda for it: and Davidoffered burnt offerings and peace offeringsbefore the LORD.18
And as soon as David had made an end of offering burnt offerings and peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the LORD of hosts.19
And he dealt among all the people, even among the whole multitude of Israel, as well to the women as men, to every oneacake of bread, and a good piece of flesh, and a flagon of wine. So all the peopledeparted every one to his house.20
Then Davidreturned to bless his household. And Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meetDavid, and said , How glorious was the king of Israel to day, who uncovered himself to day in the eyes of the handmaids of his servants, as one of the vain fellowsshamelesslybuncovereth himself!
And Davidsaid unto Michal, It was before the LORD, which chose me before thy father, and before all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the LORD, over Israel: therefore will I playbefore the LORD.
