(2 Samuel 6:5-11)

NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
9When they came to the threshing floor of Kidon, Uzzah reached out his hand to steady the ark, because the oxen stumbled.9And when they came to the threshing floor of Chidon, Uzzah put out his hand to take hold of the ark, for the oxen stumbled.9When they came to the threshing floor of Chidon, Uzza put out his hand to hold the ark, because the oxen nearly upset it.9And when they came unto the threshingfloor of Chidon, Uzza put forth his hand to hold the ark; for the oxen stumbled.9When they came to Chidon's threshing floor, Uzzah reached out to hold the ark because the oxen had stumbled.
10The LORD's anger burned against Uzzah, and he struck him down because he had put his hand on the ark. So he died there before God.10And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzzah, and he struck him down because he put out his hand to the ark, and he died there before God.10The anger of the LORD burned against Uzza, so He struck him down because he put out his hand to the ark; and he died there before God.10And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzza, and he smote him, because he put his hand to the ark: and there he died before God.10Then the LORD's anger burned against Uzzah, and He struck him dead because he had reached out to the ark. So he died there in the presence of God.
11Then David was angry because the LORD's wrath had broken out against Uzzah, and to this day that place is called Perez Uzzah.11And David was angry because the LORD had broken out against Uzzah. And that place is called Perez-uzza to this day.11Then David became angry because of the LORD'S outburst against Uzza; and he called that place Perez-uzza to this day.11And David was displeased, because the LORD had made a breach upon Uzza: wherefore that place is called Perezuzza to this day.11David was angry because of the LORD's outburst against Uzzah, so he named that place Outburst Against Uzzah, as it is still named today.
