1 Chronicles 15 (WEBP)

[1] David made himself houses in David’s city; and he prepared a place for God’s ark, and pitched a tent for it.
[2] Then David said, “No one ought to carry God’s ark but the Levites. For Yahweh has chosen them to carry God’s ark, and to minister to him forever.”
[3] David assembled all Israel at Jerusalem, to bring up Yahweh’s ark to its place, which he had prepared for it.
[4] David gathered together the sons of Aaron and the Levites:
[5] of the sons of Kohath, Uriel the chief, and his brothers one hundred twenty;
[6] of the sons of Merari, Asaiah the chief, and his brothers two hundred twenty;
[7] of the sons of Gershom, Joel the chief, and his brothers one hundred thirty;
[8] of the sons of Elizaphan, Shemaiah the chief, and his brothers two hundred;
[9] of the sons of Hebron, Eliel the chief, and his brothers eighty;
[10] of the sons of Uzziel, Amminadab the chief, and his brothers one hundred twelve.
[11] David called for Zadok and Abiathar the priests, and for the Levites: for Uriel, Asaiah, Joel, Shemaiah, Eliel, and Amminadab,
[12] and said to them, “You are the heads of the fathers’ households of the Levites. Sanctify yourselves, both you and your brothers, that you may bring the ark of Yahweh, the God of Israel, up to the place that I have prepared for it.
[13] For because you didn’t carry it at first, Yahweh our God broke out in anger against us, because we didn’t seek him according to the ordinance.”
[14] So the priests and the Levites sanctified themselves to bring up the ark of Yahweh, the God of Israel.
[15] The children of the Levites bore God’s ark on their shoulders with its poles, as Moses commanded according to Yahweh’s word.
[16] David spoke to the chief of the Levites to appoint their brothers as singers with instruments of music, stringed instruments, harps, and cymbals, sounding aloud and lifting up their voices with joy.
[17] So the Levites appointed Heman the son of Joel; and of his brothers, Asaph the son of Berechiah; and of the sons of Merari their brothers, Ethan the son of Kushaiah;
[18] and with them their brothers of the second rank: Zechariah, Ben, Jaaziel, Shemiramoth, Jehiel, Unni, Eliab, Benaiah, Maaseiah, Mattithiah, Eliphelehu, Mikneiah, Obed-Edom, and Jeiel, the doorkeepers.
[19] So the singers, Heman, Asaph, and Ethan, were given cymbals of bronze to sound aloud;
[20] and Zechariah, Aziel, Shemiramoth, Jehiel, Unni, Eliab, Maaseiah, and Benaiah, with stringed instruments set to Alamoth;
[21] and Mattithiah, Eliphelehu, Mikneiah, Obed-Edom, Jeiel, and Azaziah, with harps tuned to the eight-stringed lyre, to lead.
[22] Chenaniah, chief of the Levites, was over the singing. He taught the singers, because he was skillful.
[23] Berechiah and Elkanah were doorkeepers for the ark.
[24] Shebaniah, Joshaphat, Nethanel, Amasai, Zechariah, Benaiah, and Eliezer, the priests, blew the trumpets before God’s ark; and Obed-Edom and Jehiah were doorkeepers for the ark.
[25] So David, the elders of Israel, and the captains over thousands went to bring the ark of Yahweh’s covenant up out of the house of Obed-Edom with joy.
[26] When God helped the Levites who bore the ark of Yahweh’s covenant, they sacrificed seven bulls and seven rams.
[27] David was clothed with a robe of fine linen, as were all the Levites who bore the ark, the singers, and Chenaniah the choir master with the singers; and David had an ephod of linen on him.
[28] Thus all Israel brought the ark of Yahweh’s covenant up with shouting, with sound of the cornet, with trumpets, and with cymbals, sounding aloud with stringed instruments and harps.
[29] As the ark of Yahweh’s covenant came to David’s city, Michal the daughter of Saul looked out at the window, and saw king David dancing and playing; and she despised him in her heart.

1 Chronicles 15 (KJVS)

[1] And [David] made H6213 (8799) him houses H1004 in the city H5892 of David H1732, and prepared H3559 (8686) a place H4725 for the ark H727 of God H430, and pitched H5186 (8799) for it a tent H168.
[2] Then David H1732 said H559 (8804), None ought to carry H5375 (8800) the ark H727 of God H430 but the Levites H3881: for them hath the LORD H3068 chosen H977 (8804) to carry H5375 (8800) the ark H727 of God H430, and to minister H8334 (8763) unto him for H5704 ever H5769.
[3] And David H1732 gathered H6950 all Israel H3478 together H6950 (8686) to Jerusalem H3389, to bring up H5927 (8687) the ark H727 of the LORD H3068 unto his place H4725, which he had prepared H3559 (8689) for it.
[4] And David H1732 assembled H622 (8799) the children H1121 of Aaron H175, and the Levites H3881:
[5] Of the sons H1121 of Kohath H6955; Uriel H222 the chief H8269, and his brethren H251 an hundred H3967 and twenty H6242:
[6] Of the sons H1121 of Merari H4847; Asaiah H6222 the chief H8269, and his brethren H251 two hundred H3967 and twenty H6242:
[7] Of the sons H1121 of Gershom H1647; Joel H3100 the chief H8269, and his brethren H251 an hundred H3967 and thirty H7970:
[8] Of the sons H1121 of Elizaphan H469; Shemaiah H8098 the chief H8269, and his brethren H251 two hundred H3967:
[9] Of the sons H1121 of Hebron H2275; Eliel H447 the chief H8269, and his brethren H251 fourscore H8084:
[10] Of the sons H1121 of Uzziel H5816; Amminadab H5992 the chief H8269, and his brethren H251 an hundred H3967 and twelve H8147 H6240.
[11] And David H1732 called H7121 (8799) for Zadok H6659 and Abiathar H54 the priests H3548, and for the Levites H3881, for Uriel H222, Asaiah H6222, and Joel H3100, Shemaiah H8098, and Eliel H447, and Amminadab H5992,
[12] And said H559 (8799) unto them, Ye [are] the chief H7218 of the fathers H1 of the Levites H3881: sanctify H6942 (8690) yourselves, [both] ye and your brethren H251, that ye may bring up H5927 (8689) the ark H727 of the LORD H3068 God H430 of Israel H3478 unto [the place that] I have prepared H3559 (8689) for it.
[13] For because ye [did it] not at the first H7223, the LORD H3068 our God H430 made a breach H6555 (8804) upon us, for that we sought H1875 (8804) him not after the due order H4941.
[14] So the priests H3548 and the Levites H3881 sanctified H6942 (8691) themselves to bring up H5927 (8687) the ark H727 of the LORD H3068 God H430 of Israel H3478.
[15] And the children H1121 of the Levites H3881 bare H5375 (8799) the ark H727 of God H430 upon their shoulders H3802 with the staves H4133 thereon, as Moses H4872 commanded H6680 (8765) according to the word H1697 of the LORD H3068.
[16] And David H1732 spake H559 (8799) to the chief H8269 of the Levites H3881 to appoint H5975 (8687) their brethren H251 [to be] the singers H7891 (8789) with instruments H3627 of musick H7892, psalteries H5035 and harps H3658 and cymbals H4700, sounding H8085 (8688), by lifting up H7311 (8687) the voice H6963 with joy H8057.
[17] So the Levites H3881 appointed H5975 (8686) Heman H1968 the son H1121 of Joel H3100; and of his brethren H251, Asaph H623 the son H1121 of Berechiah H1296; and of the sons H1121 of Merari H4847 their brethren H251, Ethan H387 the son H1121 of Kushaiah H6984;
[18] And with them their brethren H251 of the second H4932 [degree], Zechariah H2148, Ben H1122, and Jaaziel H3268, and Shemiramoth H8070, and Jehiel H3171, and Unni H6042, Eliab H446, and Benaiah H1141, and Maaseiah H4641, and Mattithiah H4993, and Elipheleh H466, and Mikneiah H4737, and Obededom H5654, and Jeiel H3273, the porters H7778.
[19] So the singers H7891 (8789), Heman H1968, Asaph H623, and Ethan H387, [were appointed] to sound H8085 (8687) with cymbals H4700 of brass H5178;
[20] And Zechariah H2148, and Aziel H5815, and Shemiramoth H8070, and Jehiel H3171, and Unni H6042, and Eliab H446, and Maaseiah H4641, and Benaiah H1141, with psalteries H5035 on Alamoth H5961;
[21] And Mattithiah H4993, and Elipheleh H466, and Mikneiah H4737, and Obededom H5654, and Jeiel H3273, and Azaziah H5812, with harps H3658 on the Sheminith H8067 to excel H5329 (8763).
[22] And Chenaniah H3663, chief H8269 of the Levites H3881, [was] for song H4853: he instructed H3256 about the song H4853, because he [was] skilful H995 (8688).
[23] And Berechiah H1296 and Elkanah H511 [were] doorkeepers H7778 for the ark H727.
[24] And Shebaniah H7645, and Jehoshaphat H3146, and Nethaneel H5417, and Amasai H6022, and Zechariah H2148, and Benaiah H1141, and Eliezer H461, the priests H3548, did blow H2690 (8688) (8675) H2690 (8764) with the trumpets H2689 before H6440 the ark H727 of God H430: and Obededom H5654 and Jehiah H3174 [were] doorkeepers H7778 for the ark H727.
[25] So David H1732, and the elders H2205 of Israel H3478, and the captains H8269 over thousands H505, went H1980 (8802) to bring up H5927 (8687) the ark H727 of the covenant H1285 of the LORD H3068 out of the house H1004 of Obededom H5654 with joy H8057.
[26] And it came to pass, when God H430 helped H5826 (8800) the Levites H3881 that bare H5375 (8802) the ark H727 of the covenant H1285 of the LORD H3068, that they offered H2076 (8799) seven H7651 bullocks H6499 and seven H7651 rams H352.
[27] And David H1732 [was] clothed H3736 (8794) with a robe H4598 of fine linen H948, and all the Levites H3881 that bare H5375 (8802) the ark H727, and the singers H7891 (8789), and Chenaniah H3663 the master H8269 of the song H4853 with the singers H7891 (8789): David H1732 also [had] upon him an ephod H646 of linen H906.
[28] Thus all Israel H3478 brought up H5927 (8688) the ark H727 of the covenant H1285 of the LORD H3068 with shouting H8643, and with sound H6963 of the cornet H7782, and with trumpets H2689, and with cymbals H4700, making a noise H8085 (8688) with psalteries H5035 and harps H3658.
[29] And it came to pass, [as] the ark H727 of the covenant H1285 of the LORD H3068 came H935 (8804) to the city H5892 of David H1732, that Michal H4324 the daughter H1323 of Saul H7586 looking out H8259 (8738) at a window H2474 saw H7200 (8799) king H4428 David H1732 dancing H7540 (8764) and playing H7832 (8764): and she despised H959 (8799) him in her heart H3820.
