DAVID DANCES BEFORE THE LORD BIBLE STORY
Welcome back! Last time we got
together to share at Daily
Bread, David had become king of
all Israel, then went to Jerusalem
and took the city from the Jebusites. Following that, he defeated the Philistines
... Twice ... With the hand of God assisting all the way! That pretty much
catches us up to date.
DAVID DANCES BEFORE THE LORD BIBLE STUDY ON DAVID DANCES BEFORE THE LORD BIBLE EVENT WITH DAVID DANCES BEFORE THE LORD BIBLE MESSAGE
I'm so glad that you just read the
INFALLIBLE study with our last Daily Bread, because here comes another one
of those things that some might call a discrepancy. In this chapter, the Bible says
that the ark of God was in the house of Abinadab in the town of Gibeah, the city
where Saul reigned from. But if we go back to 1 Samuel, Chapter 7, we find this:
And it came to pass, while the ark abode in Kirjathjearim, that the time
was long; for it was twenty years: and all the house of Israel lamented
after the LORD.
Now, there was only one
instance, and it was when Saul and Jonathan
defeated the Philistines, that it was mentioned of Saul asking for the ark to
be brought to him:
1 Samuel 14:18
And Saul said unto Ahiah, Bring hither the ark of God. For the ark of God
was at that time with the children of Israel.
Perhaps after that, the ark was taken to Gibeah, because it was quite a victory, or
maybe Abinadab moved from Kirjathjearim to Gibeah. It does bear mentioning
that Kirjathjearim and Gibeah are only five miles apart, so if anyone wants to
debate with you about the exact location of the ark, maybe the author viewed
Kirjathjearim as a suburb of Gibeah, and to better explain the general
location, he used Gibeah, since it would be better known, being the home town
of the former king and all.
At any rate, David wanted the ark brought to
Jerusalem since that was the city he'd be reigning from and he knew that it
should be nearby because in the days of Saul, they didn't inquire at it ... If
they had, things may have been different for Saul.
1 Chronicles 10:13-14
So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the LORD,
even against the word of the LORD, which he kept not, and also for asking
counsel of one that had a familiar spirit, to enquire of it; And enquired
not of the LORD: therefore He slew him, and turned the kingdom unto David
the son of Jesse.
The people knew it was
the right thing to do, and David gathered
all of Israel together and they went to the house
of Abinadab the priest and brought the ark of God out and
set it on a new cart. Uzzah and Ahio,
the sons of Abinadab, drove the cart with Ahio in front. And David and all the people of Israel
played music on instruments for the Lord.
DAVID DANCES BEFORE THE LORD BIBLE LESSON WITH DAVID DANCES BEFORE THE LORD BIBLE EXPLANATION
When they were at the threshing
floor of Nachon (referred to as Chidon in
Chronicles 13:9), the oxen stumbled and shook the ark, and Uzzah reached out and put
his hand on the ark to steady it. The Lord became angry at Uzzah,
and killed him for his mistake, and he died next to the ark of God. Why did it
make the Lord mad that Uzzah touched the ark? For one thing, though Uzzah was a
Levite, he was not a priest. Only a priest was allowed to touch the ark ...
And when Aaron and his sons have made an end of covering the sanctuary,
and all the vessels of the sanctuary, as the camp is to set forward; after
that, the sons of Kohath shall come to bear it: but they shall not touch
any holy thing, lest they die. These things are the burden of the sons of
Kohath in the tabernacle of the congregation.
But they shall not go in to see when the holy things are covered, lest
A layman wasn't allowed to look at the
things in the ark either. Remember when the Philistines stole the ark? When they
sent it back to the Israelites because of all the torment each Philistine town
suffered that took possession of it, the first place that the cows which carried
the ark stopped at was Bethshemesh. But the people
of Bethshemesh looked into the Ark of the Lord and He killed 50,070 people because
of that ... Remember? That was back in
Another thing that may
have been a factor in kindling the anger of the Lord about this transferring of
the ark from the house of Abinadab was that it was supposed to be carried ...
And they put it on a cart instead.
unhappy that the Lord punished Uzzah this way, so he named the place where
this happened Perez-Uzzah, which means Breach of Uzzah.
Here's a study that you can read about
the ark which includes a picture of what it might have looked like:
DAVID DANCES BEFORE THE LORD BIBLE INFORMATION WITH DAVID DANCES BEFORE THE LORD BIBLE MEANING
Now David was afraid of the Lord that day and said
"How will I bring the ark of the Lord home to me?" He decided not to
bring the ark to the City of David yet, but into the house of Obed-edom the Gittite
and it remained there for 3 months, and the Lord blessed Obed-edom
and all his family.
So David went back to the city
of David and prepared a tabernacle for the ark and made himself houses. When David
heard about the blessings
that the Lord bestowed on Obed-edom and his family because of the presence of
the ark of God, he wanted to bring it home.
So David invited all Israel and they gathered and went and brought the ark of God from the house of Obed-edom into the
City of David with a happy celebration.
This time however David said
that none but the Levites were to carry the ark and that the Lord struck
Uzzah because they didn't follow the proper procedure for transporting the ark.
So they carried the ark on their shoulders with the staves, just as Moses had
25:14). He also had the Levites sing during the celebration, as well as
priests appointed to blow trumpets and others to be doorkeepers.
After they had gone six steps carrying the ark of
the Lord, they stopped and David made offerings to the Lord. David
danced before the Lord with all his might wearing a linen ephod and all the people of Israel
celebrated with him as they brought the ark of the Lord into Jerusalem with shouting and blowing
As the ark of the Lord arrived in the
City of David, Michal, Saul's daughter, David's wife, looked through a window
and saw king David dancing ... He was happy for the Lord because the ark was
come to the royal city where it would be inquired at ... Which was a practice
that was neglected during the reign of Saul. Michal, seeing this joy, detested
David in her heart.
the ark into the tabernacle and set it in place. David then
made burnt offerings
and peace offerings and blessed the people in the name of the Lord Almighty. He
then gave every person of Israel, men and women alike, bread, meat, and a
cake of raisins.
David also wrote a song for the
singers of the Levites to sing at this celebration. He gave it to Asaph who was
the chief musician at that time. If you've ever wondered why many of David's
psalms say "To the Chief Musician," in the title, those are songs that were sung
in the different services and celebrations of the tabernacle or temple, much
like what we today refer to as hymns in church, of which many are still composed
of the words of David's Psalms.
David also appointed certain Levites to minister before the ark, and then everyone went home.
Then David went to bless his own
household. Michal came out to meet David and said, "How glorious was the king
of Israel today, who uncovered himself in front of all the servants
and handmaidens, like a fool that isn't ashamed to uncover himself!" But David
didn't let her bother him. He replied that he was NOT ashamed to celebrate
before the Lord, who had chosen
him over her father his heirs, and that he would again play before God, and even
more enthusiastically and still feel humble in his own sight, and the
maidservants would consider him honorable.
For mocking the Lord's anointed so, Michal was barren her entire life.
Moving right along,
aren't we? Next time we meet, we'll find out more about the history of king
David ... and Israel, right here at Daily Bread!
