True Passion: Session Four, 2 Samuel 6: 12 -23. 12 Now King David was told, “The Lord has blessed the 12 household of Obed-Edom and everything he has, because of the ark of God. ” So David went down and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obed-Edom to the City of David with rejoicing. 16 As the ark of the Lord was entering the City of David, 16 Michal daughter of Saul watched from a window. And when she saw King David leaping and dancing before the Lord, she despised him in her heart. 21 David said to Michal, “It was before the Lord, who chose 21 me rather than your father or anyone from his house when he appointed me ruler over the Lord’s people Israel—I will celebrate before the Lord. I will become even more undignified than this, and I will be humiliated in my own eyes. But by these slave girls you spoke of, I will be held in honor. ”
