1 Congregavit autem rursum Da vid omnes electos ex Israel tri ginta milia.
2 Surrexitque David et abiit, et universus populus, qui erat cum eo, in Baala Iudae, ut adducerent inde arcam Dei, super quam invocatum est nomen Domini exercituum sedentis in cherubim super eam.
3 Et imposuerunt arcam Dei super plaustrum novum tuleruntque eam de domo Abinadab, qui erat in colle. Oza autem et Ahio filii Abinadab minabant plaustrum:
4 Oza ambulabat iuxta arcam, et Ahio praecedebat eam.
5 David autem et omnis Israel ludebant coram Domino omni virtute in canticis et citharis et lyris et tympanis et sistris et cymbalis.
6 Postquam autem venerunt ad aream Nachon, extendit manum Oza ad arcam Dei et tenuit eam, quoniam boves lascivientes proruperunt.
7 Iratusque est indignatione Dominus contra Ozam et percussit eum super temeritate; qui mortuus est ibi iuxta arcam Dei.
8 Contristatus autem est David, eo quod diruptionem dirupisset Dominus in Ozam; et vocatum est nomen loci illius Pharesoza (id est Diruptio Ozae) usque in diem hanc.
9 Et extimuit David Dominum in die illa dicens: "Quomodo ingredietur ad me arca Domini?".
10 Et noluit divertere ad se arcam Domini in civitate David, sed divertit eam in domum Obededom Getthaei.
11 Et habitavit arca Domini in domo Obededom Getthaei tribus mensibus, et benedixit Dominus Obededom et omnem domum eius.
12 Nuntiatumque est regi David: "Benedixit Dominus Obededom et omnia eius propter arcam Dei". Abiit ergo David et adduxit arcam Dei de domo Obededom in civitatem David cum gaudio.
13 Cumque progressi essent, qui portabant arcam Domini, sex passus, immolavit bovem et vitulum saginatum,
14 et David saltabat totis viribus ante Dominum. Porro David erat accinctus ephod lineo.
15 Et David et omnis domus Israel ducebant arcam Domini in iubilo et in clangore bucinae.
16 Cumque intrasset arca Domini in civitatem David, Michol filia Saul prospiciens per fenestram vidit regem David subsilientem atque saltantem coram Domino et despexit eum in corde suo.
17 Et introduxerunt arcam Domini et posuerunt eam in loco suo in medio tabernaculi, quod tetenderat ei David; et obtulit David coram Domino holocausta et pacifica.
18 Cumque complesset offerens holocaustum et pacifica, benedixit populo in nomine Domini exercituum.
19 Et partitus est multitudini universae Israel tam viro quam mulieri singulis collyridam panis unam et laganum palmarum unum et palatham unam. Et abiit omnis populus unusquisque in domum suam.
20 Reversusque est et David, ut benediceret domui suae, et egressa Michol filia Saul in occursum David ait: "Quam gloriosus fuit hodie rex Israel discooperiens se ante ancillas servorum suorum, quasi si nudetur unus de scurris!".
21 Dixitque David ad Michol: "Ante Dominum salto. Benedictus Dominus, qui elegit me potius quam patrem tuum et quam omnem domum eius, ut constitueret me ducem super populum Domini, super Israel!
22 Ludam in conspectu Domini et vilior fiam plus quam factus sum et ero deiectus in oculis meis, sed apud ancillas, de quibus locuta es, gloriosior apparebo".
23 Igitur Michol filiae Saul non est natus filius usque ad diem mortis suae.
King James Version
1 Again, David gathered together all the chosen men of Israel, thirty thousand.
2 And David arose, and went with all the people that were with him from Baale of Judah, to bring up from thence the ark of God, whose name is called by the name of the LORD of hosts that dwelleth between the cherubims.
3 And they set the ark of God upon a new cart, and brought it out of the house of Abinadab that was in Gibeah: and Uzzah and Ahio, the sons of Abinadab, drave the new cart.
4 And they brought it out of the house of Abinadab which was at Gibeah, accompanying the ark of God: and Ahio went before the ark.
5 And David and all the house of Israel played before the LORD on all manner of instruments made of fir wood, even on harps, and on psalteries, and on timbrels, and on cornets, and on cymbals.
6 ¶ And when they came to Nachon's threshingfloor, Uzzah put forth his hand to the ark of God, and took hold of it; for the oxen shook it.
7 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzzah; and God smote him there for his error; and there he died by the ark of God.
8 And David was displeased, because the LORD had made a breach upon Uzzah: and he called the name of the place Perez-uzzah to this day.
9 And David was afraid of the LORD that day, and said, How shall the ark of the LORD come to me?
10 So David would not remove the ark of the LORD unto him into the city of David: but David carried it aside into the house of Obed-edom the Gittite.
11 And the ark of the LORD continued in the house of Obed-edom the Gittite three months: and the LORD blessed Obed-edom, and all his household.
12 ¶ And it was told king David, saying, The LORD hath blessed the house of Obed-edom, and all that pertaineth unto him, because of the ark of God. So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obed-edom into the city of David with gladness.
13 And it was so, that when they that bare the ark of the LORD had gone six paces, he sacrificed oxen and fatlings.
14 And David danced before the LORD with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod.
15 So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the LORD with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet.
16 And as the ark of the LORD came into the city of David, Michal Saul's daughter looked through a window, and saw king David leaping and dancing before the LORD; and she despised him in her heart.
17 ¶ And they brought in the ark of the LORD, and set it in his place, in the midst of the tabernacle that David had pitched for it: and David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the LORD.
18 And as soon as David had made an end of offering burnt offerings and peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the LORD of hosts.
19 And he dealt among all the people, even among the whole multitude of Israel, as well to the women as men, to every one a cake of bread, and a good piece of flesh, and a flagon of wine. So all the people departed every one to his house.
20 ¶ Then David returned to bless his household. And Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David, and said, How glorious was the king of Israel to day, who uncovered himself to day in the eyes of the handmaids of his servants, as one of the vain fellows shamelessly uncovereth himself!
21 And David said unto Michal, It was before the LORD, which chose me before thy father, and before all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the LORD, over Israel: therefore will I play before the LORD.
22 And I will yet be more vile than thus, and will be base in mine own sight: and of the maidservants which thou hast spoken of, of them shall I be had in honour.
23 Therefore Michal the daughter of Saul had no child unto the day of her death.
