||New International Version (NIV)
2 Then David insisted that only the Levites carry God's ark because the LORD had chosen them to carry his ark and to serve him forever.
2 Then David said, "No one but the Levites may carry the ark of God, because the LORD chose them to carry the ark of the LORD and to minister before him forever."
