Reciprocal: 2 Kings 23:1 - the king 1 Chronicles 13:5 - David Acts 7:45 - unto

dwelleth: Exodus 25:18-Song of Solomon :, 1 Samuel 4:4, 1 Kings 8:6, 1 Kings 8:7, Psalms 80:1, 1 Peter 1:12

Reciprocal: Exodus 25:22 - between Numbers 4:5 - and cover Joshua 18:14 - Kirjathbaal 1 Kings 8:1 - that they might bring 2 Chronicles 1:4 - the ark Psalms 78:67 - General Luke 19:37 - the whole

on all manner: This place should doubtless be corrected from the parallel place, 1 Chronicles 13:8; where, instead of bechol âtzey beroshim, which is literally, "with all trees or wood of fir," we read bechol ôz 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, &ום יףקץי ךבי ום שהביע.

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.

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. 2 Samuel 6:14, 2 Samuel 6:16, 1 Samuel 19:23, 1 Samuel 19:24
