Be careful how you touch that which is holy

1 Samuel 6:19-20 He struck of the men of Beth Shemesh, because they had looked into the Lordís ark, he struck fifty thousand and seventy of the men. Then the people mourned, because the Lord had struck the people with a great slaughter. The men of Beth Shemesh said, ďWho is able to stand before the Lord, this holy God?. . .

2 Samuel 6:6-7 When they came to the threshing floor of Nacon, Uzzah reached for Godís ark, and took hold of it; for the cattle stumbled. The Lordís anger burned against Uzzah; and God struck him there for his error; and he died there by Godís ark.
