So they carried the ark of God on a new cart… 1 Chronicles 13:7
King David made two attempts to bring the arc of God to Jerusalem; the first one was a disaster, and the second attempt was a success. What made the difference?
God gave instructions on exactly how the arc was to be moved. The priests and Levites had this information (at least they should have known); and David could have/should have consulted with the priests about this. The priests didn’t speak up and David didn’t inquire: there is your recipe for failure!
In His Word, God gives us an extreme amount of help and wisdom: take a look!
