They took 30,000 men and put the ark of God on a new cart, to bring it out of the house of Abinadab in Gibeah. It was a good time, they were playing music and celebrating bringing the Lord’s ark back to Israel.

They were joyful and happy that the Lord’s presence would be back with His people. However, trouble and sadness struck. Along the way, the cattle driving the cart shook and the ark of God began to stumble and fall.

A man named Uzzah, did an honorable thing, he put his hand forward to stop the cart from falling over with the ark of God on it. However, God struck and killed him for his error, as he fell dead and died.

What was his error?

Touching the cart!

Apparently, he knew better that there was an order in handling God’s things. David was sorely displeased and stunned, wondering what to do and how to bring the ark of God back to his city. In lieu of this horrible event, the death of Uzzah, they decided to leave the ark of God in Obededom’s place, a Gittite.

It stayed there for three months and as it remained there. And as it remained there, God began to bless Obededom’s house. This further made David and his men make a better effort to get the ark of God back to Israel.

This time they did it the right way, which is explained in detail in the book of Chronicles, as they offered sacrifices and did it with order. They still shouted and danced and played music, but they had the right people bearing the ark of God.

All of Israel Rejoiced… Except…

Everyone in Israel was happy about the return of the ark of God, except one person; Saul’s daughter, David’s first wife Michal.

She didn’t like the way David was leaping and dancing like a common man. She’d rather him behave like what she thought a “king” would and should behave himself as. David didn’t like her attitude either. He told her he was rejoicing before God! This was the same God who chose him even above her father Saul to be ruler over all Israel.

For this David said, I will play my music and dance before the God of Israel, and everyone of the handmaids Michal was jealous of, David said, they will honor me. The chapter concludes with the mention of Michal not having any children all her life.

This is 2nd Samuel chapter 6, summary.
