2 Samuel 6:5-9 English Standard Version (ESV)

Uzzah and the Ark

And David and all the house of Israel were celebrating before the Lord, with songs[a] and lyres and harps and tambourines and castanets and cymbals. And when they came to the threshing floor of Nacon, Uzzah put out his hand to the ark of God and took hold of it, for the oxen stumbled. And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Uzzah, and God struck him down there because of his error, and he died there beside the ark of God. And David was angry because the Lord had broken out against Uzzah. And that place is called Perez-uzzah[b] to this day. And David was afraid of the Lord that day, and he said, “How can the ark of the Lord come to me?”
