RF SA2 6:1 (B.C. 1042.) David Brings the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem, and imprisons his wife Mikal.
David afterwards assembled all the gentry of Israel, thirty thousand.
RF SA2 6:2 Then David arose, and marched with all his army from Bali of Judah to bring up from there the Ark of GOD, where the name of the EVER-LIVING POWER, who rests above the Kerubim, is called upon.
RF SA2 6:3 And they placed the Ark of GOD upon a waggon, and carried it from the house of Abinadab which was on the Hill. And Uza and Akhio, sons of Abinadab, the priests, were with the new waggon,
RF SA2 6:4 and brought it from the house of Abinadab on the Hill, bearing the Ark of the EVER-LIVING GOD. But Akhio walked before the Ark,
RF SA2 6:5 with David and all the House of Israel rejoicing before the EVER-LIVING, with boughs of trees, and harps and lutes, and trumpets, and timbrels and cymbals.
RF SA2 6:6 When they came to the paved square, and Uzah was driving the Ark of GOD, he seized hold of it, for the bullocks stumbled.
RF SA2 6:7 But the EVER-LIVING was angry with Uzah, and GOD struck him there from the seat, and he died on the spot beside the Ark of GOD.
RF SA2 6:8 Then David was terrified because the EVER-LIVING had suddenly crushed Uzah. (And that place is called "Uzah's crush" to this day.2)
2. v8. "Uzah's crush" is an ancient editor's' note.—F.F.
RF SA2 6:9 And David was afraid of the EVER-LIVING at the time, and said, "The Ark of the EVER-LIVING shall not come to me!"
RF SA2 6:10 So David would not take with him the Ark of the EVER-LIVING to the City of David, but placed it in the house of Abd-Edom the gardener,
RF SA2 6:11 and the Ark of the EVER-LIVING remained in the house of Abd-Edom the gardener three months. Then the EVER-LIVING blessed Abd-Edom and all his family.
RF SA2 6:12 And it was reported to King David that "The EVER-LIVING had blessed the house of Abd-Edom, and all that belonged to him for receiving the Ark of GOD." So David went and brought up the Ark of GOD from the house of Abd-Edom, with rejoicing, to the City of David.
RF SA2 6:13 But when the bearers of the Ark of the EVER-LIVING had advanced six steps, they sacrificed a bullock and fat calf,
RF SA2 6:14 and David danced with all his might before the EVER-LIVING; and David was clothed with an ephod.
RF SA2 6:15 Thus David and all the House of Israel brought up the Ark of the EVER-LIVING with cheering and sound of trumpets,
RF SA2 6:16 but when the Ark of the EVER-LIVING came to the City of David, Mikal the daughter of Saul leaned and looked out of a window and saw King David skipping and dancing before the EVER-LIVING, and she despised him in her heart.
RF SA2 6:17 Thus they brought the Ark of the EVER-LIVING, and set it in its place within the Pavilion which David had erected for it. Then David offered burnt-offerings and thank-offerings before the EVER-LIVING.
RF SA2 6:18 When David had completed the burnt-offerings and thank-offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the EVER-LIVING POWER.
RF SA2 6:19 He also distributed to all the people, to all collected from Israel,—both men and women,—a loaf of bread, and a horn of wine, and a cake; then all the people returned each to his house.
RF SA2 6:20 When Mikal the daughter of Saul came to meet David, she said; "How dignified the king of Israel was to-day, when he exhibited himself to the eyes of his servant girls as common fellows exhibit themselves!"
RF SA2 6:21 But David replied to Mikal, "It was before the EVER-LIVING, who chose me instead of your father! and instead of all your house, and commanded me to be guardian over all the people of the EVER-LIVING, over Israel,—so I sported before the EVER-LIVING.
RF SA2 6:22 And I will degrade myself more than that, and will humble myself in my own eyes, but by the servant-girls whom you mention I shall be honoured!
RF SA2 6:23 But for Mikal the daughter of Saul,—there shall be no child for her to the day of her death!"
