2 Samuel 6:6-11


6:6 When they arrived at the threshing floor of Nacon, 1  Uzzah reached out and grabbed hold of 2  the ark of God, 3  because the oxen stumbled. 6:7 The Lord was so furious with Uzzah, 4  he 5  killed him on the spot 6  for his negligence. 7  He died right there beside the ark of God.

6:8 David was angry because the Lord attacked 8  Uzzah; so he called that place Perez Uzzah, 9  which remains its name to this very day. 6:9 David was afraid of the Lord that day and said, “How will the ark of the Lord ever come to me?” 6:10 So David was no longer willing to bring the ark of the Lord to be with him in the City of David. David left it in the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite. 6:11 The ark of the Lord remained in the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite for three months. The Lord blessed Obed-Edom and all his family. 10 

1 tn 1 Chr 13:9 has “Kidon.”

2 tn Or “steadied.”

3 tn Heb “and Uzzah reached out toward the ark of God and grabbed it.”

4 tn Heb “and the anger of the Lord burned against Uzzah.”

5 tn Heb “God.”

6 tc Heb “there.” Since this same term occurs later in the verse it is translated “on the spot” here for stylistic reasons.

7 tc The phrase “his negligence” is absent from the LXX.

8 tn Heb “because the Lord broke out [with] a breaking out [i.e., an outburst] against Uzzah.”

9 sn The name Perez Uzzah means in Hebrew “the outburst [against] Uzzah.”

10 tn Heb “house,” both here and in v. 12.
