The Ark of the Covenant Brought from Kiriath-Jearim

1 And David consulted with the commanders of thousands and hundreds, with every leader.
2 And David said to all the assembly of Israel, "{If it seems good to you} and before Yahweh our God, {let us send word abroad} to our brothers who remain in all the land of Israel and [to] the priests and Levites with them in the cities with their pasturelands that they might be gathered to us.
3 Then let us bring around the ark of our God to us, for we did not seek it in the days of Saul."
4 And all the assembly agreed to do so, for the word was pleasing in the eyes of all the people.
5 And David summoned all Israel from Shihor of Egypt up to Lebo-Hamath to bring the ark of God from Kiriath-Jearim.
6 And David and all Israel went up to Baalah, Kiriath-Jearim of Judah, to bring up from there the ark of Yahweh God [who] is enthroned [between] the cherubim, which is called the name.
7 And they carried the ark of God upon a new cart from the house of Abinadab, and Uzza and Ahio were driving the cart.
8 Now David and all Israel were celebrating before God with all [their] strength, and with songs, lyres, harps, tambourines, cymbals, and trumpets.
9 And when they came to the threshing floor of Kidon, Uzza reached out his hand to hold the ark because the cattle had stumbled.
10 And Yahweh {was angry} with Uzza, and he struck him down because he reached his hand upon the ark. And he died there before God.
11 And David {was angry} because Yahweh had broken out in wrath against Uzza. And that place is called Perez Uzza unto this day.
12 And David feared God on that day, saying, "How can I bring the ark of God [home] to me?"
13 So David did not move the ark to himself into the city of David but diverted it to the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite.
14 And the ark of God remained with the household of Obed-Edom in his house three months. And Yahweh blessed the household of Obed-Edom and all that he had.
