1 Chronicles 13
David fetcheth the Ark with great solemnity from Kirjath-jearim.
1 Chronicles 13:1 And Dauid consulted with the captaines of thousands, and hundreds, [and] with euery leader. 1 Chronicles 13:2 And Dauid said vnto all the Congregation of Israel, If it [seeme] good vnto you, and that it [be] of the LORD our God, let vs send abroad vnto our brethren euery where, that are left in all the land of Israel, and with them also to the Priests and Leuites which [are] in their cities [and] suburbs, that they may gather themselues vnto vs. 1 Chronicles 13:3 And let vs bring againe the Arke of our God to vs: for wee enquired not at it in the dayes of Saul. 1 Chronicles 13:4 And all the Congregation saide, that they would doe so: for the thing was right in the eyes of all the people. 1 Chronicles 13:5 So Dauid gathered all Israel together, from Shihor of Egypt, euen vnto the entring of Hemath, to bring the Arke of God from Kiriath-iearim. 1 Chronicles 13:6 And Dauid went vp, and all Israel, to Baalah, that is, to Kiriath-iearim, which [belonged] to Iudah, to bring vp thence the Arke of God the LORD, that dwelleth betweene the Cherubims, whose name is called [on it]. 1 Chronicles 13:7 And they caried the Arke of God in a new cart, out of the house of Abinadab: and Uzza, and Ahio draue the cart. 1 Chronicles 13:8 And Dauid and all Israel played before God with all [their] might, and with singing, and with harpes, and with psalteries, and with tymbrels, and with cymbals, and with trumpets.
Uzza being smitten, the Ark left at the house of Obed-edom.
1 Chronicles 13:9 And when they came vnto the threshing floore of Chidon, Uzza put foorth his hand to hold the Arke, for the oxen stumbled. 1 Chronicles 13:10 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzza, and hee smote him, because hee put his hand to the Arke: and there he died before God. 1 Chronicles 13:11 And Dauid was displeased, because the LORD had made a breach vpon Uzza; wherefore that place is called Perez-Uzza, to this day. 1 Chronicles 13:12 And Dauid was afraide of God that day, saying, How shall I bring the Arke of God home to me? 1 Chronicles 13:13 So Dauid brought not the Arke home to himselfe to the city of Dauid, but caried it aside into the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite. 1 Chronicles 13:14 And the Arke of God remained with the family of Obed-Edom in his house three moneths. And the LORD blessed the house of Obed-Edom, and all that he had.
