2 Samuel 6:7 also records this event with Uzza. It is a natural reaction; to steady something about to fall and perhaps he should have known better. There were rules as to how to carry the Ark in Numbers 4; and other places on who was allowed to. In 1 Samuel 6:19 people also were slain for LOOKING into the Ark.

This is basically the same principle involved for those who would be in the inner Temple. Since this appears to be an unintentional sin; it is not at the same level of transgression as those who tried to enter that weren't supposed to be in there; let alone those that had "strange fire" (Leviticus 10:1-11). The result may be the same; as to ending this earthly life; but the eternal results for those who are saved or unsaved surely wouldn't. Moses; in fact himself was warned by God that he wouldn't live if he viewed Him fully; as no man can see God (in the flesh) and live (Exodus 33:20). It is this Holiness in God which we should strive for; now that in some sense He lives in us as a Temple or Tabernacle. (1 Cor. 6:19). This verse shows; in fact how for self careless living can lead to physical death (1 Cor. 11:27 and following verses); and could allude to those who martyr God's saints as well (Psalm 116:15). See also Rev. 17:6; Rev. 6:9:11.

It truly is a profound thing for the eternal God to tabernacle with men. It is based on His grace; and His covenants in which ultimately in the New Covenant involved our redemption through His Son. (Heb. 8:13; 9:15). This is; BTW the only way any old covenant is ended-God's covenants are eternal; and our vows for our lifetime and that of the other parties represented as to what was promised. God is ever faithful; even when we are not. (Deut. 7:9) for context.

In this particular case, the fault lies in the leadership and all advisors. They should have consulted the Lord and remembered the instructions given by Moses in how the Ark was to be transported. This also shows how everyone should have known how to approach the Lord. This was not an easy lesson to learn, nor figure out. Verse 3 may give us some light in this situation, as they "...enquired not at it in the days of Saul."

We are some what in this same situation with our relationship with the Lord. Our leaders are ignorant of the things of God, and we as a nation are suffering because of their ignorance. We need to turn back to the Lord and worship Him with all our soul, and all our might.
