1 Chronicles 15
15:1 ¶ And he made him houses, in the city of David,and prepared a place for the ark of God, and pitched for it a tent.
15:4 And David gathered together the sons of Aaron, and the Levites:
15:5 Of the sons of Kohath, Uriel the chief, and his brethren, one hundred and twenty;
15:6 of the sons of Merari, Asaiah the chief, and his brethren, two hundred and twenty;
15:7 of the sons of Gershom, Joel the chief, and his brethren, one hundred and thirty;
15:8 of the sons of Elizaphan, Shemaiah the chief, and his brethren, two hundred;
15:9 of the sons of Hebron, Eliel the chief, and his brethren, eighty;
15:10 of the son of Uzziel, Amminadab the chief, and his brethren, a hundred and twelve.
15:11 Then called David, for Zadok and for Abiathar, the priests,and for the Levites, for Uriel, Asaiah and Joel, Shemaiah and Eliel, and Amminadab;
15:12 and said unto them, Ye, are the chiefs of the fathers of the Levites,Hallow yourselves, ye and your brethren, so shall ye bring up the ark of YahwehGod of Israel, into [the place] I have prepared for it.
15:16 And David spake to the chiefs of the Levites, to station their brethren the singers, with instruments of song, harps and lyres, and cymbals,sounding aloud at the lifting up of the voice, for joy.
15:17 So the Levites caused to stand, Heman son of Joel, and, of his brethren, Asaph, son of Berechiah,and, of the sons of Merari their brethren, Ethan, son of Kushaiah;
15:18 and, with them, their brethren of the second degree,Zechariah, Ben, and Jaaziel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehiel and Unni, Eliab, and Benaiah, and Maaseiah, and Mattithiah, and Eliphelehu, and Mickneiah, and Obed-edom and Jeiel, the door-keepers.
15:19 And, the singers, Heman, Asaph and Ethan, with cymbals of bronze, were to sound aloud;
15:20 and Zechariah, and Aziel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehiel, and Unni, and Eliab, and Maaseiah and Benaiah,with harps, over the trebles;
15:21 and Mattithiah, Eliphelehu, and Mikneiah, and Obed-edom, and Jeiel and Azaziah,with lyres over the bass, to take the lead.
15:22 And, Chenaniah the leader of the Levites, in the service, used to give instructions in the service, because skilful was he.
15:23 And, Berechiah and Elkanah, were door-keepers to the ark.
15:24 And, Shebaniah, and Joshaphat, and Nethanel, and Amasai, and Zechariah, and Benaiah, and Eliezer, the priests, were blowing with the trumpets, before the ark of God,and, Obed-edom and Jehiah, were door-keepers, to the ark.
15:27 Now, David, was wrapped about with a robe of byssus, with all the Levites who were bearing the ark, and the singers, and Chenaniah the leader of the service rendered by the singers,but, upon David, was an ephod of white linen.
15:29 And so it was that, when the ark of the covenant of Yahweh came in as far as the city of David,and Michal daughter of Saul looked forth through the window, and saw King David, dancing and playing, that she despised him in her heart.
