Why did God kill Uzzah when he reached out to stop the ark of God from falling from the cart it was being transported on? I know only Levites were allow to touch the ark, but Uzzah was just trying to help stop the ark from falling. So why did God kill him?
2 Samuel 6:6-7
6 And when they came to Nachon's threshingfloor, Uzzah put forth his hand to the ark of God, and took hold of it; for the oxen shook it.
7 And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Uzzah; and God smote him there for his error; and there he died by the ark of God.
