2 Samuel 6:12-23

And it was told
<05046> (8714)
king
<04428>
David
<01732>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
The LORD
<03068>
hath blessed
<01288> (8765)
the house
<01004>
of Obededom
<05654>_,
and all that [pertaineth] unto him, because of the ark
<0727>
of God
<0430>_.
So David
<01732>
went
<03212> (8799)
and brought up
<05927> (8686)
the ark
<0727>
of God
<0430>
from the house
<01004>
of Obededom
<05654>
into the city
<05892>
of David
<01732>
with gladness
<08057>_.
And it was [so], that when they that bare
<05375> (8802)
the ark
<0727>
of the LORD
<03068>
had gone
<06805> (8804)
six
<08337>
paces
<06806>_,
he sacrificed
<02076> (8799)
oxen
<07794>
and fatlings
<04806>_.
And David
<01732>
danced
<03769> (8772)
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>
with all [his] might
<05797>_;
and David
<01732>
[was] girded
<02296> (8803)
with a linen
<0906>
ephod
<0646>_.
So David
<01732>
and all the house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>
brought up
<05927> (8688)
the ark
<0727>
of the LORD
<03068>
with shouting
<08643>_,
and with the sound
<06963>
of the trumpet
<07782>_.
And as the ark
<0727>
of the LORD
<03068>
came
<0935> (8802)
into the city
<05892>
of David
<01732>_,
Michal
<04324>
Saul's
<07586>
daughter
<01323>
looked
<08259> (8738)
through a window
<02474>_,
and saw
<07200> (8799)
king
<04428>
David
<01732>
leaping
<06339> (8764)
and dancing
<03769> (8772)
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_;
and she despised
<0959> (8799)
him in her heart
<03820>_.
And they brought
<0935> (8686)
in the ark
<0727>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and set
<03322> (8686)
it in his place
<04725>_,
in the midst
<08432>
of the tabernacle
<0168>
that David
<01732>
had pitched
<05186> (8804)
for it: and David
<01732>
offered
<05927> (8686)
burnt offerings
<05930>
and peace offerings
<08002>
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_.
{pitched: Heb. stretched}
And as soon as David
<01732>
had made an end
<03615> (8762)
of offering
<05927> (8687)
burnt offerings
<05930>
and peace offerings
<08002>_,
he blessed
<01288> (8762)
the people
<05971>
in the name
<08034>
of the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_.
And he dealt
<02505> (8762)
among all the people
<05971>_,
[even] among the whole multitude
<01995>
of Israel
<03478>_,
as well to the women
<0802>
as men
<0376>_,
to every one
<0376>
a
<0259>
cake
<02471>
of bread
<03899>_,
and a good piece
<0829>
[of flesh], and a flagon
<0809>
[of wine]. So all the people
<05971>
departed
<03212> (8799)
every one
<0376>
to his house
<01004>_.
Then David
<01732>
returned
<07725> (8799)
to bless
<01288> (8763)
his household
<01004>_.
And Michal
<04324>
the daughter
<01323>
of Saul
<07586>
came out
<03318> (8799)
to meet
<07125> (8800)
David
<01732>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
How glorious
<03513> (8738)
was the king
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>
to day
<03117>_,
who uncovered
<01540> (8738)
himself to day
<03117>
in the eyes
<05869>
of the handmaids
<0519>
of his servants
<05650>_,
as one
<0259>
of the vain fellows
<07386>
shamelessly
<01540> (8736)
uncovereth
<01540> (8736)
himself! {shamelessly: or, openly}
And David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Michal
<04324>_,
[It was] before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_,
which chose
<0977> (8804)
me before thy father
<01>_,
and before all his house
<01004>_,
to appoint
<06680> (8763)
me ruler
<05057>
over the people
<05971>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
over Israel
<03478>_:
therefore will I play
<07832> (8765)
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_.
And I will yet be more vile
<07043> (8738)
than thus
<02063>_,
and will be base
<08217>
in mine own sight
<05869>_:
and of the maidservants
<0519>
which thou hast spoken
<0559> (8804)
of, of them shall I be had in honour
<03513> (8735)_.
{of the...: or, of the handmaids of my servants}
Therefore Michal
<04324>
the daughter
<01323>
of Saul
<07586>
had no child
<02056> (8675) <03206>
unto the day
<03117>
of her death
<04194>_.
