1 Chronicles 15


1  And David made6213 him houses1004 in the city5892 of David,1732 and prepared3559 a place4725 for the ark727 of God,430 and pitched5186 for it a tent.168

2  Then227 David1732 said,559 None3808 ought to carry5375 853 the ark727 of God430 but3588 518 the Levites:3881 for3588 them hath the LORD3068 chosen977 to carry5375 853 the ark727 of God,430 and to minister8334 unto him forever.5704 5769

3  And David1732 gathered6950 853 all3605 Israel3478 together to413 Jerusalem,3389 to bring up5927 853 the ark727 of the LORD3068 unto413 his place,4725 which834 he had prepared3559 for it.

4  And David1732 assembled622 853 the children1121 of Aaron,175 and the Levites:3881

5  Of the sons1121 of Kohath;6955 Uriel222 the chief,8269 and his brethren251 a hundred3967 and twenty:6242

6  Of the sons1121 of Merari;4847 Asaiah6222 the chief,8269 and his brethren251 two hundred3967 and twenty:6242

7  Of the sons1121 of Gershom;1648 Joel3100 the chief,8269 and his brethren251 a hundred3967 and thirty:7970

8  Of the sons1121 of Elizaphan;469 Shemaiah8098 the chief,8269 and his brethren251 two hundred:3967

9  Of the sons1121 of Hebron;2275 Eliel447 the chief,8269 and his brethren251 fourscore:8084

10  Of the sons1121 of Uzziel;5816 Amminadab5992 the chief,8269 and his brethren251 a hundred3967 and twelve.8147 6240

11  And David1732 called7121 for Zadok6659 and Abiathar54 the priests,3548 and for the Levites,3881 for Uriel,222 Asaiah,6222 and Joel,3100 Shemaiah,8098 and Eliel,447 and Amminadab,5992

12  And said559 unto them, Ye859 are the chief7218 of the fathers1 of the Levites:3881 sanctify yourselves,6942 both ye859 and your brethren,251 that ye may bring up5927 853 the ark727 of the LORD3068 God430 of Israel3478 unto413 the place that I have prepared3559 for it.

13  For because3588 ye859 did it not3808 at the first,4480 7223 the LORD3068 our God430 made a breach6555 upon us, for3588 that we sought1875 him not3808 after the due order.4941

14  So the priests3548 and the Levites3881 sanctified themselves6942 to bring up5927 853 the ark727 of the LORD3068 God430 of Israel.3478

15  And the children1121 of the Levites3881 bore5375 853 the ark727 of God430 upon their shoulders3802 with the staves4133 thereon,5921 as834 Moses4872 commanded6680 according to the word1697 of the LORD.3068

16  And David1732 spoke559 to the chief8269 of the Levites3881 to appoint5975 853 their brethren251 to be the singers7891 with instruments3627 of music,7892 psalteries5035 and harps3658 and cymbals,4700 sounding,8085 by lifting up7311 the voice6963 with joy.8057

17  So the Levites3881 appointed5975 853 Heman1968 the son1121 of Joel;3100 and of4480 his brethren,251 Asaph623 the son1121 of Berechiah;1296 and of4480 the sons1121 of Merari4847 their brethren,251 Ethan387 the son1121 of Kushaiah;6984

18  And with5973 them their brethren251 of the second4932 degree, Zechariah,2148 Ben,1122 and Jaaziel,3268 and Shemiramoth,8070 and Jehiel,3171 and Unni,6042 Eliab,446 and Benaiah,1141 and Maaseiah,4641 and Mattithiah,4993 and Elipheleh,466 and Mikneiah,4737 and Obed-edom,5654 and Jeiel,3273 the porters.7778

19  So the singers,7891 Heman,1968 Asaph,623 and Ethan,387 were appointed to sound8085 with cymbals4700 of brass;5178

20  And Zechariah,2148 and Aziel,5815 and Shemiramoth,8070 and Jehiel,3171 and Unni,6042 and Eliab,446 and Maaseiah,4641 and Benaiah,1141 with psalteries5035 on5921 Alamoth;5961

21  And Mattithiah,4993 and Elipheleh,466 and Mikneiah,4737 and Obed-edom,5654 and Jeiel,3273 and Azaziah,5812 with harps3658 on5921 the Sheminith8067 to excel.5329

22  And Chenaniah,3663 chief8269 of the Levites,3881 was for song:4853 he instructed3256 about the song,4853 because3588 he1931 was skillful.995

23  And Berechiah1296 and Elkanah511 were doorkeepers7778 for the ark.727

24  And Shebaniah,7645 and Jehoshaphat,3046 and Nethaneel,5417 and Amasai,6022 and Zechariah,2148 and Benaiah,1141 and Eliezer,461 the priests,3548 did blow2690 with the trumpets2689 before6440 the ark727 of God:430 and Obed-edom5654 and Jehiah3174 were doorkeepers7778 for the ark.727

25  So1961 David,1732 and the elders2205 of Israel,3478 and the captains8269 over thousands,505 went1980 to bring up5927 853 the ark727 of the covenant1285 of the LORD3068 out of4480 the house1004 of Obed-edom5654 with joy.8057

26  And it came to pass,1961 when God430 helped5826 853 the Levites3881 that bore5375 the ark727 of the covenant1285 of the LORD,3068 that they offered2076 seven7651 bullocks6499 and seven7651 rams.352

27  And David1732 was clothed3736 with a robe4598 of fine linen,948 and all3605 the Levites3881 that bore5375 853 the ark,727 and the singers,7891 and Chenaniah3663 the master8269 of the song4853 with the singers:7891 David1732 also had upon him an ephod646 of linen.906

28  Thus all3605 Israel3478 brought up5927 853 the ark727 of the covenant1285 of the LORD3068 with shouting,8643 and with sound6963 of the cornet,7782 and with trumpets,2689 and with cymbals,4700 making a noise8085 with psalteries5035 and harps.3658

29  And it came to pass,1961 as the ark727 of the covenant1285 of the LORD3068 came935 to5704 the city5892 of David,1732 that Michal4324 the daughter1323 of Saul7586 looking out8259 at1157 a window2474 saw7200 853 king4428 David1732 dancing7540 and playing:7832 and she despised959 him in her heart.3820


1 καὶ ἐποίησεν αὐτῷ οἰκίας ἐν πόλει Δαυιδ καὶ ἡτοίμασεν τὸν τόπον τῇ κιβωτῷ τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ ἐποίησεν αὐτῇ σκηνήν

2 τότε εἶπεν Δαυιδ οὐκ ἔστιν ἆραι τὴν κιβωτὸν τοῦ θεοῦ ἀλλ᾽ ἢ τοὺς Λευίτας ὅτι αὐτοὺς ἐξελέξατο κύριος αἴρειν τὴν κιβωτὸν κυρίου καὶ λειτουργεῖν αὐτῷ ἕως αἰῶνος

3 καὶ ἐξεκκλησίασεν Δαυιδ τὸν πάντα Ισραηλ εἰς Ιερουσαλημ τοῦ ἀνενέγκαι τὴν κιβωτὸν κυρίου εἰς τὸν τόπον ὃν ἡτοίμασεν αὐτῇ

4 καὶ συνήγαγεν Δαυιδ τοὺς υἱοὺς Ααρων καὶ τοὺς Λευίτας

5 τῶν υἱῶν Κααθ Ουριηλ ὁ ἄρχων καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ ἑκατὸν εἴκοσι

6 τῶν υἱῶν Μεραρι Ασαια ὁ ἄρχων καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ διακόσιοι πεντήκοντα

7 τῶν υἱῶν Γηρσαμ Ιωηλ ὁ ἄρχων καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ ἑκατὸν πεντήκοντα

8 τῶν υἱῶν Ελισαφαν Σαμαιας ὁ ἄρχων καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ διακόσιοι

9 τῶν υἱῶν Χεβρων Ελιηλ ὁ ἄρχων καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ ὀγδοήκοντα

10 τῶν υἱῶν Οζιηλ Αμιναδαβ ὁ ἄρχων καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ ἑκατὸν δέκα δύο

11 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν Δαυιδ τὸν Σαδωκ καὶ Αβιαθαρ τοὺς ἱερεῖς καὶ τοὺς Λευίτας τὸν Ουριηλ Ασαια Ιωηλ Σαμαιαν Ελιηλ Αμιναδαβ

12 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς ὑμεῖς ἄρχοντες πατριῶν τῶν Λευιτῶν ἁγνίσθητε ὑμεῖς καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ ὑμῶν καὶ ἀνοίσετε τὴν κιβωτὸν τοῦ θεοῦ Ισραηλ οὗ ἡτοίμασα αὐτῇ

13 ὅτι οὐκ ἐν τῷ πρότερον ὑμᾶς εἶναι διέκοψεν ὁ θεὸς ἡμῶν ἐν ἡμῖν ὅτι οὐκ ἐζητήσαμεν ἐν κρίματι

14 καὶ ἡγνίσθησαν οἱ ἱερεῖς καὶ οἱ Λευῖται τοῦ ἀνενέγκαι τὴν κιβωτὸν θεοῦ Ισραηλ

15 καὶ ἔλαβον οἱ υἱοὶ τῶν Λευιτῶν τὴν κιβωτὸν τοῦ θεοῦ ὡς ἐνετείλατο Μωυσῆς ἐν λόγῳ θεοῦ κατὰ τὴν γραφήν ἐν ἀναφορεῦσιν ἐπ᾽ αὐτούς

16 καὶ εἶπεν Δαυιδ τοῖς ἄρχουσιν τῶν Λευιτῶν στήσατε τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτῶν τοὺς ψαλτῳδοὺς ἐν ὀργάνοις ᾠδῶν νάβλαις καὶ κινύραις καὶ κυμβάλοις τοῦ φωνῆσαι εἰς ὕψος ἐν φωνῇ εὐφροσύνης

17 καὶ ἔστησαν οἱ Λευῖται τὸν Αιμαν υἱὸν Ιωηλ ἐκ τῶν ἀδελφῶν αὐτοῦ Ασαφ υἱὸς Βαραχια καὶ ἐκ τῶν υἱῶν Μεραρι ἀδελφῶν αὐτοῦ Αιθαν υἱὸς Κισαιου

18 καὶ μετ᾽ αὐτῶν ἀδελφοὶ αὐτῶν οἱ δεύτεροι Ζαχαριας καὶ Οζιηλ καὶ Σεμιραμωθ καὶ Ιιηλ καὶ Ωνι καὶ Ελιαβ καὶ Βαναια καὶ Μαασαια καὶ Ματταθια καὶ Ελιφαλια καὶ Μακενια καὶ Αβδεδομ καὶ Ιιηλ καὶ Οζιας οἱ πυλωροί

19 καὶ οἱ ψαλτῳδοί Αιμαν Ασαφ καὶ Αιθαν ἐν κυμβάλοις χαλκοῖς τοῦ ἀκουσθῆναι ποιῆσαι

20 Ζαχαριας καὶ Οζιηλ Σεμιραμωθ Ιιηλ Ωνι Ελιαβ Μασαιας Βαναιας ἐν νάβλαις ἐπὶ αλαιμωθ

21 καὶ Ματταθιας καὶ Ελιφαλιας καὶ Μακενιας καὶ Αβδεδομ καὶ Ιιηλ καὶ Οζιας ἐν κινύραις αμασενιθ τοῦ ἐνισχῦσαι

22 καὶ Χωνενια ἄρχων τῶν Λευιτῶν ἄρχων τῶν ᾠδῶν ὅτι συνετὸς ἦν

23 καὶ Βαραχια καὶ Ηλκανα πυλωροὶ τῆς κιβωτοῦ

24 καὶ Σοβνια καὶ Ιωσαφατ καὶ Ναθαναηλ καὶ Αμασαι καὶ Ζαχαρια καὶ Βαναι καὶ Ελιεζερ οἱ ἱερεῖς σαλπίζοντες ταῖς σάλπιγξιν ἔμπροσθεν τῆς κιβωτοῦ τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ Αβδεδομ καὶ Ιια πυλωροὶ τῆς κιβωτοῦ τοῦ θεοῦ

25 καὶ ἦν Δαυιδ καὶ οἱ πρεσβύτεροι Ισραηλ καὶ οἱ χιλίαρχοι οἱ πορευόμενοι τοῦ ἀναγαγεῖν τὴν κιβωτὸν τῆς διαθήκης κυρίου ἐξ οἴκου Αβδεδομ ἐν εὐφροσύνῃ

26 καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ κατισχῦσαι τὸν θεὸν τοὺς Λευίτας αἴροντας τὴν κιβωτὸν τῆς διαθήκης κυρίου καὶ ἔθυσαν ἑπτὰ μόσχους καὶ ἑπτὰ κριούς

27 καὶ Δαυιδ περιεζωσμένος ἐν στολῇ βυσσίνῃ καὶ πάντες οἱ Λευῖται αἴροντες τὴν κιβωτὸν διαθήκης κυρίου καὶ οἱ ψαλτῳδοὶ καὶ Χωνενιας ὁ ἄρχων τῶν ᾠδῶν τῶν ᾀδόντων καὶ ἐπὶ Δαυιδ στολὴ βυσσίνη

28 καὶ πᾶς Ισραηλ ἀνάγοντες τὴν κιβωτὸν διαθήκης κυρίου ἐν σημασίᾳ καὶ ἐν φωνῇ σωφερ καὶ ἐν σάλπιγξιν καὶ ἐν κυμβάλοις ἀναφωνοῦντες νάβλαις καὶ ἐν κινύραις

29 καὶ ἐγένετο κιβωτὸς διαθήκης κυρίου καὶ ἦλθεν ἕως πόλεως Δαυιδ καὶ Μελχολ θυγάτηρ Σαουλ παρέκυψεν διὰ τῆς θυρίδος καὶ εἶδεν τὸν βασιλέα Δαυιδ ὀρχούμενον καὶ παίζοντα καὶ ἐξουδένωσεν αὐτὸν ἐν τῇ ψυχῇ αὐτῆς

1 Fecit quoque sibi domos in civitate David: et ædificavit locum arcæ Dei, tetenditque ei tabernaculum.

2 Tunc dixit David: Illicitum est ut a quocumque portetur arca Dei nisi a Levitis, quos elegit Dominus ad portandum eam, et ad ministrandum sibi usque in æternum.

3 Congregavitque universum Israël in Jerusalem, ut afferretur arca Dei in locum suum, quem præparaverat ei:

4 necnon et filios Aaron, et Levitas.

5 De filiis Caath, Uriel princeps fuit, et fratres ejus centum viginti.

6 De filiis Merari, Asaia princeps: et fratres ejus ducenti viginti.

7 De filiis Gersom, Joël princeps: et fratres ejus centum triginta.

8 De filiis Elisaphan, Semeias princeps: et fratres ejus ducenti.

9 De filiis Hebron, Eliel princeps: et fratres ejus octoginta.

10 De filiis Oziel, Aminadab princeps: et fratres ejus centum duodecim.

11 Vocavitque David Sadoc et Abiathar sacerdotes, et Levitas, Uriel, Asaiam, Joël, Semeiam, Eliel, et Aminadab:

12 et dixit ad eos: Vos, qui estis principes familiarum Leviticarum, sanctificamini cum fratribus vestris, et afferte arcam Domini Dei Israël ad locum qui ei præparatus est:

13 ne ut a principio, quia non eratis præsentes, percussit nos Dominus; sic et nunc fiat, illicitum quid nobis agentibus.

14 Sanctificati sunt ergo sacerdotes et Levitæ ut portarent arcam Domini Dei Israël.

15 Et tulerunt filii Levi arcam Dei, sicut præceperat Moyses juxta verbum Domini, humeris suis in vectibus.

16 Dixitque David principibus Levitarum, ut constituerent de fratribus suis cantores in organis musicorum, nablis videlicet, et lyris, et cymbalis, ut resonaret in excelsis sonitus lætitiæ.

17 Constitueruntque Levitas: Heman filium Joël, et de fratribus ejus Asaph filium Barachiæ: de filiis vero Merari, fratribus eorum: Ethan filium Casaiæ.

18 Et cum eis fratres eorum: in secundo ordine, Zachariam, et Ben, et Jaziel, et Semiramoth, et Jahiel, et Ani, Eliab, et Banaiam, et Maasiam, et Mathathiam, et Eliphalu, et Maceniam, et Obededom, et Jehiel, janitores.

19 Porro cantores, Heman, Asaph, et Ethan, in cymbalis æneis concrepantes.

20 Zacharias autem, et Oziel, et Semiramoth, et Jahiel, et Ani, et Eliab, et Maasias, et Banaias in nablis arcana cantabant.

21 Porro Mathathias, et Eliphalu, et Macenias, et Obededom, et Jehiel, et Ozaziu, in citharis pro octava canebant epinicion.

22 Chonenias autem princeps Levitarum, prophetiæ præerat, ad præcinendam melodiam: erat quippe valde sapiens.

23 Et Barachias, et Elcana, janitores arcæ.

24 Porro Sebenias, et Josaphat, et Nathanaël, et Amasai, et Zacharias, et Banaias, et Eliezer sacerdotes, clangebant tubis coram arca Dei: et Obededom et Jehias erant janitores arcæ.

25 Igitur David, et omnes majores natu Israël, et tribuni, ierunt ad deportandam arcam fœderis Domini de domo Obededom cum lætitia.

26 Cumque adjuvisset Deus Levitas qui portabant arcam fœderis Domini, immolabantur septem tauri, et septem arietes.

27 Porro David erat indutus stola byssina, et universi Levitæ qui portabant arcam, cantoresque, et Chonenias princeps prophetiæ inter cantores: David autem etiam indutus erat ephod lineo.

28 Universusque Israël deducebant arcam fœderis Domini in jubilo, et sonitu buccinæ, et tubis, et cymbalis, et nablis, et citharis concrepantes.

29 Cumque pervenisset arca fœderis Domini usque ad civitatem David, Michol filia Saul prospiciens per fenestram vidit regem David saltantem atque ludentem, et despexit eum in corde suo.
