1 Chronicles 15

GNT 1 For his own use, David built houses in David's City. He also prepared a place for God's Covenant Box and put up a tent for it. NIV 1 After David had constructed buildings for himself in the City of David, he prepared a place for the ark of God and pitched a tent for it. GNT 2 Then he said, "Only Levites should carry the Covenant Box, because they are the ones the Lord chose to carry it and to serve him forever." NIV 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.” GNT 3 So David summoned all the people of Israel to Jerusalem in order to bring the Covenant Box to the place he had prepared for it. NIV 3 David assembled all Israel in Jerusalem to bring up the ark of the LORD to the place he had prepared for it. GNT 4 Next he sent for the descendants of Aaron and for the Levites. NIV 4 He called together the descendants of Aaron and the Levites: GNT 5 From the Levite clan of Kohath came Uriel, in charge of 120 members of his clan; NIV 5 From the descendants of Kohath, Uriel the leader and 120 relatives; GNT 6 from the clan of Merari came Asaiah, in charge of 220; NIV 6 from the descendants of Merari, Asaiah the leader and 220 relatives; GNT 7 from the clan of Gershon, Joel, in charge of 130; NIV 7 from the descendants of Gershon,Joel the leader and 130 relatives; GNT 8 from the clan of Elizaphan, Shemaiah, in charge of 200; NIV 8 from the descendants of Elizaphan, Shemaiah the leader and 200 relatives; GNT 9 from the clan of Hebron, Eliel, in charge of 80; NIV 9 from the descendants of Hebron, Eliel the leader and 80 relatives; GNT 10 and from the clan of Uzziel, Amminadab, in charge of 112. NIV 10 from the descendants of Uzziel, Amminadab the leader and 112 relatives. GNT 11 David called in the priests Zadok and Abiathar and the six Levites, Uriel, Asaiah, Joel, Shemaiah, Eliel, and Amminadab. NIV 11 Then David summoned Zadok and Abiathar the priests, and Uriel, Asaiah, Joel, Shemaiah, Eliel and Amminadab the Levites. GNT 12 He said to the Levites, "You are the leaders of the Levite clans. Purify yourselves and your fellow Levites, so that you can bring the Covenant Box of the Lord God of Israel to the place I have prepared for it. NIV 12 He said to them, “You are the heads of the Levitical families; you and your fellow Levites are to consecrate yourselves and bring up the ark of the LORD, the God of Israel, to the place I have prepared for it. GNT 13 Because you were not there to carry it the first time, the Lord our God punished us for not worshiping him as we should have done." NIV 13 It was because you, the Levites, did not bring it up the first time that the LORD our God broke out in anger against us. We did not inquire of him about how to do it in the prescribed way.” GNT 14 Then the priests and the Levites purified themselves in order to move the Covenant Box of the Lord God of Israel. NIV 14 So the priests and Levites consecrated themselves in order to bring up the ark of the LORD, the God of Israel. GNT 15 The Levites carried it on poles on their shoulders, as the Lord had commanded through Moses. NIV 15 And the Levites carried the ark of God with the poles on their shoulders, as Moses had commanded in accordance with the word of the LORD. GNT 16 David commanded the leaders of the Levites to assign various Levites to sing and to play joyful music on harps and cymbals. NIV 16 David told the leaders of the Levites to appoint their fellow Levites as musicians to make a joyful sound with musical instruments: lyres, harps and cymbals. GNT 17 From the clans of singers they chose the following men to play the brass cymbals: Heman son of Joel, his relative Asaph son of Berechiah, and Ethan son of Kushaiah, of the clan of Merari. To assist them they chose the following Levites to play the high-pitched harps: Zechariah, Jaaziel, Shemiramoth, Jehiel, Unni, Eliab, Maaseiah, and Benaiah. To play the low-pitched harps they chose the following Levites: Mattithiah, Eliphelehu, Mikneiah, Azaziah, and the Temple guards, Obed Edom and Jeiel. NIV 17 So the Levites appointed Heman son of Joel; from his relatives, Asaph son of Berekiah; and from their relatives the Merarites, Ethan son of Kushaiah; GNT 22 Because of his skill in music Chenaniah was chosen to be in charge of the levitical musicians. NIV 22 Kenaniah the head Levite was in charge of the singing; that was his responsibility because he was skillful at it. GNT 23 Berechiah and Elkanah, along with Obed Edom and Jehiah, were chosen as guards for the Covenant Box. The priests Shebaniah, Joshaphat, Nethanel, Amasai, Zechariah, Benaiah, and Eliezer were chosen to blow trumpets in front of the Covenant Box. NIV 23 Berekiah and Elkanah were to be doorkeepers for the ark. GNT 25 So King David, the leaders of Israel, and the military commanders went to the house of Obed Edom to get the Covenant Box, and they had a great celebration. NIV 25 So David and the elders of Israel and the commanders of units of a thousand went to bring up the ark of the covenant of the LORD from the house of Obed-Edom, with rejoicing. GNT 26 They sacrificed seven bulls and seven sheep, to make sure that God would help the Levites who were carrying the Covenant Box. NIV 26 Because God had helped the Levites who were carrying the ark of the covenant of the LORD, seven bulls and seven rams were sacrificed. GNT 27 David was wearing a robe made of the finest linen, and so were the musicians, Chenaniah their leader, and the Levites who carried the Box. David also wore a linen ephod. NIV 27 Now David was clothed in a robe of fine linen, as were all the Levites who were carrying the ark, and as were the musicians, and Kenaniah, who was in charge of the singing of the choirs. David also wore a linen ephod. GNT 28 So all the Israelites accompanied the Covenant Box up to Jerusalem with shouts of joy, the sound of trumpets, horns, and cymbals, and the music of harps. NIV 28 So all Israel brought up the ark of the covenant of the LORD with shouts, with the sounding of rams’ horns and trumpets, and of cymbals, and the playing of lyres and harps. GNT 29 As the Box was being brought into the city, Michal, Saul's daughter, looked out of the window and saw King David dancing and leaping for joy, and she was disgusted with him. NIV 29 As the ark of the covenant of the LORD was entering the City of David, Michal daughter of Saul watched from a window. And when she saw King David dancing and celebrating, she despised him in her heart.
