First Chronicles 15


15:1 And [David] made him houses in the city of David, and
 prepared a place for the ark of God, and pitched for it a tent.
15:2 Then David said, None ought to carry the ark of God but the
 Levites: for them hath the LORD chosen to carry the ark of God,
 and to minister to him for ever.
15:3 And David assembled all Israel to Jerusalem, to bring up
 the ark of the LORD to its place, which he had prepared for it.
15:4 And David assembled the children of Aaron, and the Levites:
15:5 Of the sons of Kohath; Uriel the chief, and his brethren a
 hundred and twenty:
15:6 Of the sons of Merari; Asaiah the chief, and his brethren
 two hundred and twenty:
15:7 Of the sons of Gershom; Joel the chief, and his brethren a
 hundred and thirty:
15:8 Of the sons of Elizaphan; Shemaiah the chief, and his
 brethren two hundred:
15:9 Of the sons of Hebron; Eliel the chief, and his brethren
 eighty:
15:10 Of the sons of Uzziel: Amminadab the chief, and his
 brethren a hundred and twelve.
15:11 And David called for Zadok and Abiathar the priests, and
 for the Levites, for Uriel, Asaiah, and Joel, Shemaiah, and
 Eliel, and Amminadab,
15:12 And said to them, Ye [are] the chief of the fathers of the
 Levites: sanctify yourselves, [both] ye and your brethren, that
 ye may bring up the ark of the LORD God of Israel to [the place
 that] I have prepared for it.
15:13 For because ye [did it] not at the first, the LORD our God
 made a breach upon us, for that we sought him not after the due
 order.
15:14 So the priests and the Levites sanctified themselves to
 bring up the ark of the LORD God of Israel.
15:15 And the children of the Levites bore the ark of God upon
 their shoulders with the staffs on it, as Moses commanded,
 according to the word of the LORD.
15:16 And David spoke to the chief of the Levites to appoint
 their brethren [to be] the singers with instruments of music,
 psalteries, and harps, and cymbals, sounding, by lifting up the
 voice with joy.
15:17 So the Levites appointed Heman the son of Joel; and of his
 brethren, Asaph the son of Berechiah; and of the sons of Merari
 their brethren, Ethan the son of Kushaiah;
15:18 And with them their brethren of the second [degree],
 Zechariah, Ben, and Jaaziel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehiel, and
 Unni, Eliab, and Benaiah, and Maaseiah, and Mattithiah, and
 Elipheleh, and Mikneiah, and Obed-edom, and Jeiel, the porters.
15:19 So the singers, Heman, Asaph, and Ethan, [were appointed]
 to sound with cymbals of brass;
15:20 And Zechariah, and Aziel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehiel, and
 Unni, and Eliab, and Maaseiah, and Benaiah, with psalteries on
 Alamoth;
15:21 And Mattithiah, and Elipheleh, and Mikneiah, and
 Obed-edom, and Jeiel, and Azaziah, with harps on the Sheminith
 to excel.
15:22 And Chenaniah, chief of the Levites, [was] for song: he
 instructed about the song, because he [was] skillful.
15:23 And Berechiah and Elkanah [were] door-keepers for the ark.
15:24 And Shebaniah, and Jehoshaphat, and Nethaneel, and Amasai,
 and Zechariah, and Benaiah, and Eliezer the priests, did blow
 with the trumpets before the ark of God: and Obed-edom and
 Jehiah [were] door-keepers for the ark.
15:25 So David and the elders of Israel, and the captains over
 thousands, went to bring up the ark of the covenant of the LORD
 from the house of Obed-edom with joy.
15:26 And it came to pass, when God helped the Levites that bore
 the ark of the covenant of the LORD, that they offered seven
 bullocks and seven rams.
15:27 And David [was] clothed with a robe of fine linen, and all
 the Levites that bore the ark, and the singers, and Chenaniah
 the master of the song with the singers: David also [had] upon
 him an ephod of linen.
15:28 Thus all Israel brought up the ark of the covenant of the
 LORD with shouting, and with sound of the cornet, and with
 trumpets, and with cymbals, making a noise with psalteries and
 harps.
15:29 And it came to pass, [as] the ark of the covenant of the
 LORD came to the city of David, that Michal the daughter of
 Saul, looking out at a window, saw king David dancing and
 playing: and she despised him in her heart.
