2 Samuel 6:1-2 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

God’s Holy Box Is Moved to Jerusalem

David again gathered all the best soldiers in Israel. There were 30,000 men. Then David and all his men went to Baalah in Judah[a] to take God’s Holy Box there. The Holy Box is like God’s throne—people go there to call on the name of the Lord All-Powerful who sits as king above the Cherub angels that are on that Box.
