Bible: 1 Chronicles 13:1-5

Uzzah Meets Disaster

13:1 David consulted with his military officers, including those who led groups of a thousand and those who led groups of a hundred. 1  13:2 David said to the whole Israelite assembly, “If you so desire and the Lord our God approves, 2  let’s spread the word 3  to our brothers who remain in all the regions of Israel, and to the priests and Levites in their cities, 4  so they may join us. 13:3 Let’s move the ark of our God back here, 5  for we did not seek his will 6  throughout Saul’s reign.” 7  13:4 The whole assembly agreed to do this, 8  for the proposal seemed right to all the people. 9  13:5 So David assembled all Israel from the Shihor River 10  in Egypt to Lebo Hamath, 11  to bring the ark of God from Kiriath Jearim.
