2 Samuel 6-8 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

Again, David gathered together all the chosen men of Israel, thirty thousand.

And David arose, and went with all the people who were with him from Baale of Judah to bring up from thence the ark of God, whose name is called by the name of the Lord of hosts who dwelleth between the cherubims.

And they set the ark of God upon a new cart, and brought it out of the house of Abinadab, that was at Gibeah; and Uzzah and Ahio, the sons of Abinadab, drove the new cart.

And they brought it out of the house of Abinadab, which wasat Gibeah, accompanying the ark of God; and Ahio went before the ark.

And David and all the house of Israel played before the Lord on all manner of instruments made of fir wood, even on harps and on psalteries, and on timbrels and on cornets, and on cymbals.

And when they came to Nachon’s threshing floor, Uzzah put forth his hand to the ark of God and took hold of it, for the oxen shook it.

And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Uzzah, and God smote him there for his error; and there he died by the ark of God.

And David was displeased because the Lord had broken out upon Uzzah; and he called the name of the place Perezuzzah [that is, The breach of Uzzah] to this day.

And David was afraid of the Lord that day and said, “How shall the ark of the Lord come to me?”

10 So David would not remove the ark of the Lord unto him into the City of David, but David carried it aside into the house of Obededom the Gittite.

11 And the ark of the Lord continued in the house of Obededom the Gittite three months; and the Lord blessed Obededom and all his household.

12 And it was told King David, saying, “The Lord hath blessed the house of Obededom and all that pertaineth unto him, because of the ark of God.” So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obededom into the City of David with gladness.

13 And it was so that, when those who bore the ark of the Lord had gone six paces, he sacrificed oxen and fatlings.

14 And David danced before the Lord with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod.

15 So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the Lord with shouting and with the sound of the trumpet.

16 And as the ark of the Lord came into the City of David, Michal, Saul’s daughter, looked through a window and saw King David leaping and dancing before the Lord; and she despised him in her heart.

17 And they brought in the ark of the Lord, and set it in his place in the midst of the tabernacle that David had pitched for it; and David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the Lord.

18 And as soon as David had made an end of offering burnt offerings and peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the Lord of hosts.

19 And he dealt among all the people, even among the whole multitude of Israel, as well to the women as men, to every one a cake of bread and a good piece of flesh and a flagon of wine. So all the people departed every one to his house.

20 Then David returned to bless his household. And Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David and said, “How glorious was the king of Israel today, who uncovered himself today in the eyes of the handmaids of his servants, as one of the vain fellows shamelessly uncovereth himself!”

21 And David said unto Michal, “It was before the Lord, who chose me before thy father and before all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the Lord, over Israel; therefore will I play before the Lord.

22 And I will yet be more vile than thus, and will be base in mine own sight; and of the maidservants whom thou hast spoken of, of them shall I be held in honor.”

23 Therefore Michal the daughter of Saul had no child unto the day of her death.

And it came to pass, when the king sat in his house and the Lord had given him rest round about from all his enemies,

that the king said unto Nathan the prophet, “See now, I dwell in a house of cedar, but the ark of God dwelleth within curtains.”

And Nathan said to the king, “Go, do all that is in thine heart, for the Lord is with thee.”

And it came to pass that night that the word of the Lord came unto Nathan, saying,

“Go and tell My servant David, ‘Thus saith the Lord: Shalt thou build Me a house for Me to dwell in?

For I have not dwelt in any house since the time that I brought up the children of Israel out of Egypt even to this day, but have walked in a tent and in a tabernacle.

In all the places wherein I have walked with all the children of Israel, spoke I a word with any of the tribes of Israel, whom I commanded to feed My people Israel, saying, “Why build ye not Me a house of cedar?”’

Now therefore, so shalt thou say unto My servant David, ‘Thus saith the Lord of hosts: I took thee from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be ruler over My people, over Israel.

And I was with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all thine enemies out of thy sight, and have made thee a great name, like unto the name of the great men who are on the earth.

10 Moreover I will appoint a place for My people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as before,

11 and as since the time that I commanded judges to be over My people Israel and have caused thee to rest from all thine enemies. “‘Also the Lord telleth thee that He will make thee a house.

12 And when thy days be fulfilled and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, who shall proceed out of thy loins, and I will establish his kingdom.

13 He shall build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom for ever.

14 I will be his Father, and he shall be My son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men;

15 but My mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee.

16 And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established forever before thee; thy throne shall be established for ever.’”

17 According to all these words and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak unto David.

18 Then went King David in and sat before the Lord, and he said: “Who am I, O Lord God? And what is my house, that Thou hast brought me hitherto?

19 And this was yet a small thing in Thy sight, O Lord God; but Thou hast spoken also of Thy servant’s house for a great while to come. And is this the manner of man, O Lord God?

20 And what can David say more unto Thee? For Thou, Lord God, knowest Thy servant.

21 For Thy word’s sake and according to Thine own heart hast Thou done all these great things to make Thy servant know them.

22 Therefore Thou art great, O Lord God; for there is none like Thee, neither is there any God besides Thee, according to all that we have heard with our ears.

23 And what one nation on the earth is like Thy people, even like Israel, whom God went to redeem for a people to Himself, and to make Him a name and to do for You great things and fearsome for Thy land, before Thy people whom Thou redeemed to Thee from Egypt, from the nations and their gods?

24 For Thou hast confirmed for Thyself Thy people Israel to be a people unto Thee for ever; and Thou, Lord, art become their God.

25 And now, O Lord God, the word that Thou hast spoken concerning Thy servant and concerning his house, establish it for ever, and do as Thou hast said.

26 And let Thy name be magnified for ever saying, ‘The Lord of hosts is the God over Israel’; and let the house of Thy servant David be established before Thee.

27 For Thou, O Lord of hosts, God of Israel, hast revealed to Thy servant, saying, ‘I will build thee a house.’ Therefore hath Thy servant found in his heart to pray this prayer unto Thee.

28 And now, O Lord God, Thou art that God, and Thy words be true, and Thou hast promised this goodness unto Thy servant.

29 Therefore now let it please Thee to bless the house of Thy servant, that it may continue for ever before Thee; for Thou, O Lord God, hast spoken it, and with Thy blessing let the house of Thy servant be blessed for ever.”

And after this it came to pass that David smote the Philistines and subdued them; and David took Methegammah out of the hand of the Philistines.

And he smote Moab, and measured them with a line, casting them down to the ground: even with two lines measured he those to be put to death, and with one full line those to be kept alive. And so the Moabites became David’s servants and brought gifts.

David smote also Hadadezer the son of Rehob, king of Zobah, as he went to recover his border at the River Euphrates.

And David took from him a thousand chariots, and seven hundred horsemen, and twenty thousand footmen; and David hamstrung all the chariot horses, but reserved enough of them for a hundred chariots.

And when the Syrians of Damascus came to succor Hadadezer king of Zobah, David slew of the Syrians two and twenty thousand men.

Then David put garrisons in Syria of Damascus; and the Syrians became servants to David and brought gifts. And the Lord preserved David whithersoever he went.

And David took the shields of gold that were on the servants of Hadadezer and brought them to Jerusalem.

And from Betah and from Berothai, cities of Hadadezer, King David took exceeding much brass.

When Toi king of Hamath heard that David had smitten all the host of Hadadezer,

10 then Toi sent Joram his son unto King David to salute him and to bless him, because he had fought against Hadadezer and smitten him; for Hadadezer had wars with Toi. And Joram brought with him vessels of silver and vessels of gold and vessels of brass,

11 which also King David dedicated unto the Lord, with the silver and gold that he had dedicated of all nations which he subdued:

12 of Syria, and of Moab, and of the children of Ammon, and of the Philistines, and of Amalek, and of the spoil of Hadadezer son of Rehob, king of Zobah.

13 And David got him a name when he returned from smiting the Syrians in the Valley of Salt, being eighteen thousand men.

14 And he put garrisons in Edom; throughout all Edom he put garrisons, and all those of Edom became David’s servants. And the Lord preserved David whithersoever he went.

15 And David reigned over all Israel; and David executed judgment and justice unto all his people.

16 And Joab the son of Zeruiah was over the host; and Jehoshaphat the son of Ahilud was recorder;

17 and Zadok the son of Ahitub and Ahimelech the son of Abiathar were the priests; and Seraiah was the scribe;

18 and Benaiah the son of Jehoiada was over both the Cherethites and the Pelethites; and David’s sons were chief rulers.

Luke 15:1-10 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

15 Then drew near unto Him all the publicans and sinners to hear Him.

And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, “This man receiveth sinners and eateth with them.”

And He spoke this parable unto them, saying,

“What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost until he find it?

And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.

And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbors, saying unto them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!’

I say unto you that likewise more joy shall be in Heaven over one sinner that repenteth, than over ninety and nine just persons who need no repentance.

“Or what woman, having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle and sweep the house and seek diligently until she find it?

And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbors together, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the piece which I had lost!’

10 Likewise I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.”
