“David Fetches the Ark”

Blessings folk!

David now had a task.

2 Sa 6:1-5

Now David again gathered all the chosen men of Israel, thirty thousand.

And David arose and went with all the people who were with him to Baale-judah,
to bring up from there the ark of God which is called by the Name,
the very name of the LORD of hosts who is enthroned above the cherubim.

They placed the ark of God on a new cart that they might bring it from the house of Abinadab which was on the hill; and Uzzah and Ahio, the sons of Abinadab, were leading the new cart.

So they brought it with the ark of God from the house of Abinadab,
which was on the hill; and Ahio was walking ahead of the ark.

Meanwhile, David and all the house of Israel were celebrating before the LORD with all kinds of instruments made of fir wood, and with lyres, harps, tambourines, castanets and cymbals.

David took 30,000 chosen men of Israel to fetch the Ark of the Covenant, the ark of God which is called by the Name…a designation of God.

The very Name and Presence of God is enthroned above the cherubim on the Ark.

They placed the ark of God on a new cart.
They were celebrating before the Lord…
- with all kinds of wood instruments
- with lyres, harps, tambourines, castanets, cymbals.

Great detail is provided as to who was around the Ark on the cart.

Things are going well.
Except for one thing.

No one had read the instructions…
