Sometimes as children, we may become angry with our parents, or our love ones in a state of what may be termed self-righteous anger. Our parent, our partner, our friend, does something which, may not necessarily be wrong; but according to our scale of values, our self-righteous judgment, may look very wrong in our eyes, so we sometimes rail against it. It is often no less true in our relationship with God. It was so with David. In the past, whenever David reached a moment of crisis or uncertainty, he would go to God and seek counsel. So it would seem inconsistent for him to question or be angered by God’s decision. Yet because God smote his servant Uzzah, David was furious with God. So we find. “David was displeased because God made a breach upon Uzzah. So he called the name of the place Perez-Uzzah.” And David was in fear and wondered how the ark of the Lord should come to him. And he did not move the ark of the Lord into his city, the city of David, but carried it to the house of Obed-Edom a Gittite, where it remained for three months, during which time the Lord abundantly blessed the house of Obed-Edom, and all that pertained to it. And it was told king David how the Lord was blessing the house of Obed-Edom, and so David went with gladness, and took the ark of the Lord into his own city, the City of David.
