1 And David took counsel with the captains of thousands and captains of hundreds, [even with] every commander. 2 And David said to the whole congregation of Israel, If it [seem] good to you, and it should be prospered by the Lord our God, let us send to our brethren that are left in all the land of Israel, and let the priests the Levites who are with them in the cities of their possession [come], and let them be gathered to us. 3 And let us bring over to us the ark of our God; for men have not enquired [at] it since the days of Saul. 4 And all the congregation said that they would do thus; for the saying was right in the eyes of all the people. 5 So David assembled all Israel, from the borders of Egypt even to the entering in of Hemath, to bring in the ark of God from the city of Jarim. 6 And David brought it up: and all Israel went up to the city of David, which belonged to Juda, to bring up thence the ark of the Lord God who sits between the cherubim, whose name is called [on it]. 7 And they set the ark of God on a new waggon [brought] out of the house of Aminadab: and Oza and his brethren drove the waggon. 8 And David and all Israel [were] playing before the Lord with all their might, and [that] together with singers, and with harps, and with lutes, with timbrels, and with cymbals, and with trumpets. 9 And they came as far as the threshing-floor: and Oza put forth his hand to hold the ark, because the bullock moved it from [its place]. 10 And the Lord was very angry with Oza, and smote him there, because of his stretching forth his hand upon the ark: and he died there before God. 11 And David was dispirited, because the Lord [had] made a breach on Oza: and he called that place the Breach of Oza until this day. 12 And David feared God that day, saying, How shall I bring the ark of God in to myself? 13 So David brought not the ark home to himself into the city of David, but he turned it aside into the house of Abeddara the Gethite. 14 And the ark of God abode in the house of Abeddara three months: and God blessed Abeddara and all that he had. ΚΑΙ ἐβουλεύσατο Δαυὶδ μετὰ τῶν χιλιάρχων καὶ τῶν ἑκατοντάρχων, παντὶ ἡγουμένῳ, 2 καὶ εἶπε Δαυὶδ τῇ πάσῃ ἐκκλησίᾳ ᾿Ισραήλ· εἰ ἐφ᾿ ὑμῖν ἀγαθὸν καὶ παρὰ Κυρίου τοῦ Θεοῦ ἡμῶν εὐοδωθῇ, ἀποστείλωμεν πρὸς τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς ἡμῶν τοὺς ὑπολελειμμένους ἐν πάσῃ γῇ ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ μετ᾿ αὐτῶν οἱ ἱερεῖς οἱ Λευῖται ἐν πόλεσι κατασχέσεως αὐτῶν, καὶ συναχθήσονται πρὸς ἡμᾶς, 3 καὶ μετενέγκωμεν τὴν κιβωτὸν τοῦ Θεοῦ ἡμῶν πρὸς ἡμᾶς· ὅτι οὐκ ἐζήτησαν αὐτὴν ἀφ᾿ ἡμερῶν Σαούλ. 4 καὶ εἶπε πᾶσα ἡ ἐκκλησία τοῦ ποιῆσαι οὕτως, ὅτι εὐθὴς ὁ λόγος ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς παντὸς τοῦ λαοῦ. 5 καὶ ἐξεκκλησίασε Δαυὶδ τὸν πάντα ᾿Ισραὴλ ἀπὸ ὁρίων Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἕως εἰσόδου ῾Ημὰθ τοῦ εἰσενέγκαι τὴν κιβωτὸν τοῦ Θεοῦ ἐκ πόλεως ᾿Ιαρίμ. 6 καὶ ἀνήγαγεν αὐτὴν Δαυίδ, καὶ πᾶς ᾿Ισραὴλ ἀνέβη εἰς πόλιν Δαυίδ, ἣ ἦν τοῦ ᾿Ιούδα, τοῦ ἀναγαγεῖν ἐκεῖθεν τὴν κιβωτὸν τοῦ Θεοῦ Κυρίου καθημένου ἐπὶ Χερουβίμ, οὗ ἐπεκλήθη ὄνομα αὐτοῦ. 7 καὶ ἐπέθηκαν τὴν κιβωτὸν τοῦ Θεοῦ ἐφ᾿ ἅμαξαν καινὴν ἐξ οἴκου ᾿Αμαναδάβ, καὶ ᾿Οζὰ καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ ἦγον τὴν ἅμαξαν. 8 καὶ Δαυὶδ καὶ πᾶς ᾿Ισραὴλ παίζοντες ἐναντίον τοῦ Θεοῦ ἐν πάσῃ δυνάμει καὶ ἐν ψαλτῳδοῖς καὶ ἐν κινύραις καὶ ἐν νάβλαις, ἐν τυμπάνοις, καὶ ἐν κυμβάλοις καὶ ἐν σάλπιγξι. 9 καὶ ἤλθοσαν ἕως τῆς ἅλωνος, καὶ ἐξέτεινεν ᾿Οζὰ τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ τοῦ κατασχεῖν τὴν κιβωτόν, ὅτι ἐξέκλινεν αὐτὴν ὁ μόσχος. 10 καὶ ἐθυμώθη Κύριος ὀργῇ ἐπὶ ᾿Οζὰ καὶ ἐπάταξεν αὐτὸν ἐκεῖ διὰ τὸ ἐκτεῖναι τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὴν κιβωτόν, καὶ ἀπέθανεν ἐκεῖ ἀπέναντι τοῦ Θεοῦ. 11 καὶ ἠθύμησε Δαυίδ, ὅτι διέκοψε Κύριος διακοπὴν ἐν ᾿Οζά, καὶ ἐκάλεσε τὸν τόπον ἐκεῖνον Διακοπὴ ᾿Οζὰ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης. 12 καὶ ἐφοβήθη Δαυὶδ τὸν Θεὸν ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ, λέγων· πῶς εἰσοίσω τὴν κιβωτὸν τοῦ Θεοῦ πρὸς ἐμαυτόν; 13 καὶ οὐκ ἀπέστρεψε Δαυὶδ τὴν κιβωτὸν πρὸς ἑαυτὸν εἰς πόλιν Δαυίδ, καὶ ἐξέκλινεν αὐτὴν εἰς οἶκον ᾿Αβεδδαρὰ τοῦ Γεθθαίου. 14 καὶ ἐκάθισεν ἡ κιβωτὸς τοῦ Θεοῦ ἐν οἴκῳ ᾿Αβεδδαρὰ τρεῖς μῆνας· καὶ εὐλόγησεν ὁ Θεὸς ᾿Αβεδδαρὰ καὶ πάντα τὰ αὐτοῦ.
