David had the Ark of God moved to Jerusalem, but not in the way the Lord authorized. Therefore, a man died because of it. Later David said,

“No one may carry the ark of God but the Levites, for the LORD has chosen them to carry the ark of God and to minister before Him forever” (1 Chronicles 15.2).

Previously David and Israel had the Ark moved on a cart pulled by oxen. The oxen stumbled and a man reached out to keep the Ark from hitting the ground, and he died for touching what was forbidden to him.

Later David read the word or someone read it to him, and he declared the proper way to transport the Ark, and then they had good success.
