Chapter 15 (1 Chronicles 15)

The bringing in of the ark to the city of David was a very good work; it was resolved upon (1 Chron. 13:4), and attempted, but not perfected; it lay by the way in the house of Obed-edom. Now this chapter gives us an account of the completing of that good work. I. How it was done more regularly than before. 1. A place was prepared for it, 1 Chron. 15:1. 2. The priests were ordered to carry it, 1 Chron. 15:2-15. 3. The Levites had their offices assigned them in attending on it, 1 Chron. 15:16-24. II. How it was done more successfully than before, 1 Chron. 15:25. 1. The Levites made no mistake in their work, 1 Chron. 15:26. 2. David and the people met with no damp upon their joy, 1 Chron. 15:27, 28. As for Michal?s despising David, it was nothing, 1 Chron. 15:29.
