113 - The ark restored.

Kathleen's thoughts

Psalm 15:1-5,  68: 19-35,132: 1-18, 97:1-12, 24:1-10
1 Chronicles 15: 1-24
2 Samuel 6:
Psalms ...68 Speaks of David's song of triumph. May the Lord be praised! Day after day He hears our burdens' God is our salvation.
132... The Temple praised.
97... God the supreme Ruler. The Lord reigns Let the earth rejoice; let the many coasts and islands be glad. 6. The heavens proclaim His righteousness; all the peoples see His glory.9...For You, Lord, are the Most High over all the earth; You are exalted above all the gods.
15.. What God requires... Lord, who can dwell in Your tent? Who can live on Your holy mountain?
The one who lives honestly practices righteousness, and acknowledges the truth in his heart
Who does not slander with his tongue, who does not harm his friend or discredit his neighbour.
Who despises the one rejected by the Lord, but honours those who fear the Lord,, who keeps his word whatever the cost,
Who does not lend his money at interest or take a bribe against the innocent the one who does these things will never be moved.
A very interesting requirement Which is quite easy to keep and yet we find it very hard in living our daily lives
24... The earth and everything in it, the world and its inhabitants, belong to the Lord

David orders the Levites to carry the ark which he had prepared a tent for it and the reason for this David said is the Lord has chosen them to carry the ark of the Lord and to minister before Him forever. For the Lord our God burst out in anger against us because you Levites were not with us the first time, for we didn't inquire of Him about the proper procedures. So the priest and the Levites consecrated themselves to bring up the ark of the Lord God of Israel.

In Chronicles 15 The Musicians were chosen.  The Levites carried the ark of God the way Moses had commanded according to the word of the Lord on their shoulders with poles.

In 2 Samuel the ark is brought to Jerusalem. King David was dancing with all his might before the Lord wearing a linen ephod. He and the whole house of Israel were bringing up the ark of the Lord with shouts and the sound of the ram's horn. Michal Saul's daughter saw King David dancing in the street and she despised him in her heart. The ark is set in place and they offered burnt offerings and fellowship in God's presence. David blesses the people.
