1 Chronicles 13

CEBA 1 After consulting with the captains of the units of a thousand and a hundred, in fact with every leader, NIV 1 David conferred with each of his officers, the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds. CEBA 2 David said to the entire Israelite assembly: "If you approve, and if the LORD our God agrees, let's spread the word to the rest of our relatives in all the regions of Israel, including the priests and Levites in their cities with pasturelands. Let's ask them to join us NIV 2 He then said to the whole assembly of Israel, “If it seems good to you and if it is the will of the LORD our God, let us send word far and wide to the rest of our people throughout the territories of Israel, and also to the priests and Levites who are with them in their towns and pasturelands, to come and join us. CEBA 3 so that we may bring the chest of our God back to us, because we didn't look for it in Saul's days." NIV 3 Let us bring the ark of our God back to us, for we did not inquire of it during the reign of Saul.” CEBA 4 The whole assembly agreed to do so, because all the people thought it was the right thing to do. NIV 4 The whole assembly agreed to do this, because it seemed right to all the people. CEBA 5 So David assembled all Israel, from the border of Egypt to Lebo-hamath in order to bring up God's chest from Kiriath-jearim. NIV 5 So David assembled all Israel, from the Shihor River in Egypt to Lebo Hamath, to bring the ark of God from Kiriath Jearim. CEBA 6 Then David and all Israel went up toward Baalah, to Kiriath-jearim, which belongs to Judah, to bring up from there the chest of God, the LORD, who sits enthroned on the winged creatures, where he is called by name. NIV 6 David and all Israel went to Baalah of Judah (Kiriath Jearim) to bring up from there the ark of God the LORD, who is enthroned between the cherubim—the ark that is called by the Name. CEBA 7 They moved God's chest on a new cart from Abinadab's house. Uzzah and Ahio were guiding the cart, NIV 7 They moved the ark of God from Abinadab’s house on a new cart, with Uzzah and Ahio guiding it. CEBA 8 while David and all Israel celebrated in God's presence with all their strength, accompanied by songs, zithers, harps, tambourines, cymbals, and trumpets. NIV 8 David and all the Israelites were celebrating with all their might before God, with songs and with harps, lyres, timbrels, cymbals and trumpets. CEBA 9 When they came to Chidon's threshing floor, Uzzah reached out to the chest and grabbed it because the oxen had stumbled. NIV 9 When they came to the threshing floor of Kidon, Uzzah reached out his hand to steady the ark, because the oxen stumbled. CEBA 10 But the LORD became angry with Uzzah and struck him because he had placed his hand on the chest. He died right there before God. NIV 10 The LORD’s anger burned against Uzzah, and he struck him down because he had put his hand on the ark. So he died there before God. CEBA 11 David was angry that the LORD lashed out at Uzzah; and so that place is still called Perez-uzzah today. NIV 11 Then David was angry because the LORD’s wrath had broken out against Uzzah, and to this day that place is called Perez Uzzah. CEBA 12 David was frightened by God that day. "How will I ever bring God's chest home to me?" he asked. NIV 12 David was afraid of God that day and asked, “How can I ever bring the ark of God to me?” CEBA 13 So David didn't take the chest away with him to David's City. Instead, he had it put in the house of Obed-edom the Gittite. NIV 13 He did not take the ark to be with him in the City of David. Instead, he took it to the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite. CEBA 14 God's chest stayed with Obed-edom's household for three months, and the LORD blessed Obed-edom's household and all that he had. NIV 14 The ark of God remained with the family of Obed-Edom in his house for three months, and the LORD blessed his household and everything he had.
