9 So 1David was afraid of the LORD that day; and he said, "How can the ark of the LORD come to me?"
10 And David was unwilling * to move the ark of the LORD into the city of David with him; but David took it aside to the house of 2Obed-edom the Gittite.
11 Thus the ark of the LORD remained in the house of Obed-edom the Gittite three months, and the LORD 3blessed Obed-edom and all his household.

The Ark Is Brought to Jerusalem

12 Now it was told King David, saying, "The LORD has blessed the house of Obed-edom and all that belongs to him, on account of the ark of God." 4David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obed-edom into 5the city of David with gladness.
13 And so it was, that when the 6bearers of the ark of the LORD had gone six paces, he sacrificed an 7ox and a fatling.
14 And 8David was dancing before the LORD with all his might, and David was 9wearing a linen ephod.
15 So David and all the house of Israel were bringing up the ark of the LORD with shouting and the sound of the trumpet.
