Uzzah and Ahio, sons of Abinadab, were guiding the cart, NIV 3 They set the ark of God on a new cart and brought it from the house of Abinadab, which was on the hill.

GNTA 6 As they came to the threshing place of Nacon, the oxen stumbled, and Uzzah reached out and took hold of the Covenant Box. NIV 6 When they came to the threshing floor of Nakon, Uzzah reached out and took hold of the ark of God, because the oxen stumbled. GNTA 7 At once the Lord God became angry with Uzzah and killed him because of his irreverence. Uzzah died there beside the Covenant Box, NIV 7 The LORD’s anger burned against Uzzah because of his irreverent act; therefore God struck him down, and he died there beside the ark of God. GNTA 8 and so that place has been called Perez Uzzah ever since. David was furious because the Lord had punished Uzzah in anger. NIV 8 Then David was angry because the LORD’s wrath had broken out against Uzzah, and to this day that place is called Perez Uzzah. GNTA 9 Then David was afraid of the Lord and said, "How can I take the Covenant Box with me now?" NIV 9 David was afraid of the LORD that day and said, “How can the ark of the LORD ever come to me?” GNTA 10 So he decided not to take it with him to Jerusalem; instead, he turned off the road and took it to the house of Obed Edom, a native of the city of Gath. NIV 10 He was not willing to take the ark of the LORD to be with him in the City of David. Instead, he took it to the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite. GNTA 11 It stayed there three months, and the Lord blessed Obed Edom and his family. NIV 11 The ark of the LORD remained in the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite for three months, and the LORD blessed him and his entire household. GNTA 12 King David heard that because of the Covenant Box the Lord had blessed Obed Edom's family and all that he had; so he got the Covenant Box from Obed's house to take it to Jerusalem with a great celebration. NIV 12 Now King David was told, “The LORD has blessed the household of Obed-Edom and everything he has, because of the ark of God.” So David went to bring up the ark of God from the house of Obed-Edom to the City of David with rejoicing.

GNTA 14 David, wearing only a linen cloth around his waist, danced with all his might to honor the Lord.

NIV 15 while he and all Israel were bringing up the ark of the LORD with shouts and the sound of trumpets. GNTA 16 As the Box was being brought into the city, Michal, Saul's daughter, looked out of the window and saw King David dancing and jumping around in the sacred dance, and she was disgusted with him. NIV 16 As the ark of the LORD was entering the City of David, Michal daughter of Saul watched from a window.

NIV 19 Then he gave a loaf of bread, a cake of dates and a cake of raisins to each person in the whole crowd of Israelites, both men and women. And all the people went to their homes. GNTA 20 Afterward, when David went home to greet his family, Michal came out to meet him. "The king of Israel made a big name for himself today!" she said. "He exposed himself like a fool in the sight of the servant women of his officials!" NIV 20 When David returned home to bless his household, Michal daughter of Saul came out to meet him and said, “How the king of Israel has distinguished himself today, going around half-naked in full view of the slave girls of his servants as any vulgar fellow would!” GNTA 21 David answered, "I was dancing to honor the Lord, who chose me instead of your father and his family to make me the leader of his people Israel. And I will go on dancing to honor the Lord, NIV 21 David said to Michal, “It was before the LORD, who chose me rather than your father or anyone from his house when he appointed me ruler over the LORD’s people Israel—I will celebrate before the LORD. GNTA 22 and will disgrace myself even more. You may think I am nothing, but those women will think highly of me!" NIV 22 I will become even more undignified than this, and I will be humiliated in my own eyes. But by these slave girls you spoke of, I will be held in honor.” GNTA 23 Michal, Saul's daughter, never had any children. NIV 23 And Michal daughter of Saul had no children to the day of her death.
