The Scriptures
2 Samuel 6:1-5, 12-19 – Dancing with God

Key Verses:

  • 2: “David and all the people with him set out…to bring up from there the ark of God.” – The ark, representing the living presence of God, had been in many different locations over recent years, including with the Philistines. David felt that if he moved the ark into the City of David, that God would bless the entire nation of Israel and transform Jerusalem into the City of God.

  • 3: “They carried the ark of God on a new cart, and brought it out of the house of Abinadab.” – Carrying the ark on a cart was not the proper procedure for handling the ark. Due to this, Uzzah, one of Abinadab’s sons was killed when he reached out to protect the ark from falling.

  • 5: “David and all the house of Israel were dancing before the Lord with all their might, with songs and lyres and harps and tambourines and castanets and cymbals.” – David is an extreme worshipper. Nothing is held back when he worships and glorifies God.

  • 16: “As the ark of the Lord came into the city of David, Michal daughter of Saul, looked out of the window and saw King David leaping and dancing before the Lord; and she despised him in her heart.” – Michal was also David’s first wife and when she saw David, nearly naked, dancing and making a fool of himself before the entire city, she must have felt this was not proper behavior for a king. Her heart grew in bitterness.

  • 18: “When David had finished offering the burnt offerings…he blessed the people in the name of the Lord and distributed food among all the people.” – David performed the role of priest, leading his people in worship of the Lord.
Points to Contemplate:
Promises of the Gospel:

When God enters our lives we are blessed beyond measure. Our response to those blessings should be one of unlimited joy. David broke from the limitations of what many thought was proper behavior for a king. Instead, he danced and sang and worshipped God with his entire being. We are to respond to God’s love by allowing it to freely flow from the heart, without concern of what others might think and without being judgmental of how others act.
