Chapter 6

Verse 1
Again, David gathered together all the chosen men of Israel, thirty thousand.


5:1; 1 Kings 8:1; 1 Chronicles 13:1-4; Psalms 132:1-6

Verse 2
And David arose, and went with all the people that were with him from Baale of Judah, to bring up from thence the ark of God, whose name is called by the name of the LORD of hosts that dwelleth between the cherubims.
Baale
Joshua 15:9,10,60
Baalah, i
&e., Kirjath-jearim.
1 Samuel 7:1; 1 Chronicles 13:5,6
whose name, etc
or, at which the name, even the name of the Lord of hosts, was called upon.
Leviticus 24:11-16; Isaiah 47:4; 54:5
dwelleth
Exodus 25:18-22; 1 Samuel 4:4; 1 Kings 8:6,7; Psalms 80:1; 1 Peter 1:12

Verse 3
And they set the ark of God upon a new cart, and brought it out of the house of Abinadab that was in Gibeah: and Uzzah and Ahio, the sons of Abinadab, drave the new cart.
set, etc
Heb. made the ark of God to ride.
Numbers 4:5-12; 7:9; 1 Samuel 6:7
Gibeah
or, the hill.

Verse 4
And they brought it out of the house of Abinadab which was at Gibeah, accompanying the ark of God: and Ahio went before the ark.
1 Samuel 7:1,2; 1 Chronicles 13:7
accompanying
Heb. with.

Verse 5
And David and all the house of Israel played before the LORD on all manner of instruments made of fir wood, even on harps, and on psalteries, and on timbrels, and on cornets, and on cymbals.
David
1 Samuel 10:5; 16:16; 2 Kings 3:15; 1 Chronicles 13:8; 15:10-24; Psalms 47:5; 68:25-27; Psalms 150:3-5; Daniel 3:5,7,10,15; Amos 5:23; 6:5
on all manner
This place should doubtless be corrected from the parallel place, 1 Ch 13:8; where, instead of bechol tzey beroshim, which is literally, "with all trees or wood of fir," we read bechol z oovesheerim, "with all their might, and with songs." This makes a good sense, while the former makes none: the LXX. have the same reading here, [en ischui, kai en odais.]

Verse 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.
Nachon's
1 Chronicles 13:9
he is called Chidon
put forth. Even the Kohathites, who were appointed to carry the ark, after it was covered by the priests, were forbidden to touch it on pain of death; but Uzzah, who certainly was no priest, probably with some degree of irreverence, having presumed to lay his hand upon the ark, which perhaps was not covered, thus incurred the penalty due to his rashness.
Numbers 4:15,19,20
shook it
or, stumbled.

Verse 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.
God smote
Leviticus 10:1-3; 1 Samuel 6:19; 1 Chronicles 13:10; 15:2,13; 1 Corinthians 11:30-32
error
or, rashness.

Verse 8
And David was displeased, because the LORD had made a breach upon Uzzah: and he called the name of the place Perezuzzah to this day.
displeased
1 Chronicles 13:11,12; Jonah 4:1,9
made
Heb. broken. Perez-uzzah. that is, The breach of Uzzah.

Verse 9
And David was afraid of the LORD that day, and said, How shall the ark of the LORD come to me?
afraid

How shall
1 Kings 8:27; 1 Chronicles 13:11,12; Job 25:5,6

Verse 10
So David would not remove the ark of the LORD unto him into the city of David: but David carried it aside into the house of Obededom the Gittite.
Obed-edom
1 Chronicles 13:13,14; 15:18; 16:5; 26:4-8
Gittite
4:3; 15:19; 18:2

Verse 11
And the ark of the LORD continued in the house of Obededom the Gittite three months: and the LORD blessed Obededom, and all his household.
the Lord blessed

Verse 12
And it was told king David, saying, The LORD hath blessed the house of Obededom, and all that pertaineth unto him, because of the ark of God. So David went and brought up the ark of God from the house of Obededom into the city of David with gladness.
because
Matthew 10:42
So David

David
Psalms 132:18
with shouting
1 Chronicles 15:16,25,28; Ezra 3:10,11; Psalms 47:1,5,6; 68:24-27
the sound
Numbers 10:1-10; Joshua 6:4,5; Psalms 150:3

Verse 16
And as the ark of the LORD came into the city of David, Michal Saul's daughter looked through a window, and saw king David leaping and dancing before the LORD; and she despised him in her heart.
And as
1 Chronicles 15:29
Michal
3:14
despised
1 Chronicles 15:29; Psalms 69:7; Isaiah 53:3; Acts 2:13; 1 Corinthians 2:14

Verse 17
And they brought in the ark of the LORD, and set it in his place, in the midst of the tabernacle that David had pitched for it: and David offered burnt offerings and peace offerings before the LORD.
they brought
1 Chronicles 15:1; 16:1; 2 Chronicles 1:4; Psalms 132:8
pitched
Heb. stretched. offered.
1 Kings 8:5,62-65; 2 Chronicles 5:6; 7:5-7; Ezra 6:16,17

Verse 18
And as soon as David had made an end of offering burnt offerings and peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the LORD of hosts.
as soon
1 Kings 8:55; 1 Chronicles 16:2; 2 Chronicles 6:3; 30:18,19,27; Acts 3:26

Verse 19
And he dealt among all the people, even among the whole multitude of Israel, as well to the women as men, to every one a cake of bread, and a good piece of flesh, and a flagon of wine. So all the people departed every one to his house.
he dealt
1 Chronicles 16:3; 2 Chronicles 30:24; 35:7,8,12,13; Nehemiah 8:10; Ezekiel 45:17; Acts 20:35; Ephesians 4:8
So all the
1 Kings 8:66; 2 Chronicles 7:10

Verse 20
Then David returned to bless his household. And Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David, and said, How glorious was the king of Israel to day, who uncovered himself to day in the eyes of the handmaids of his servants, as one of the vain fellows shamelessly uncovereth himself!
bless
18; Genesis 18:19; Joshua 24:15; 1 Chronicles 16:43; Psalms 30:1; *title; Psalms 101:2
Michal
16; Psalms 69:7-9; Mark 3:21
glorious
Nehemiah 4:3,4; Isaiah 53:2,3; John 13:6; 1 Corinthians 4:10-13; Philippians 2:7,8
uncovered
We are only to understand by this expression that David had divested himself of his royal robes, in order to appear humble before the Lord, by assimilating himself to the condition of one of the priests or Levites: for we find that he was "girded with a linen ephod;" and consequently no part of his body was exposed, having only put off his outer garments. The terms uncovered or naked frequently mean no more than this in Scripture.
14,16; 1 Samuel 19:23,24
vain fellows
Judges 9:4; Job 30:8
shamelessly
or, openly.

Verse 21
And David said unto Michal, It was before the LORD, which chose me before thy father, and before all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the LORD, over Israel: therefore will I play before the LORD.

5; 1 Chronicles 15:29

Verse 22
And I will yet be more vile than thus, and will be base in mine own sight: and of the maidservants which thou hast spoken of, of them shall I be had in honour.
more vile

maid-servants
or, handmaids. I be had.
1 Samuel 2:30

Verse 23
Therefore Michal the daughter of Saul had no child unto the day of her death.
