To remain in the presence of the Lord at the Tabernacle or Temple (1 Samuel 21:7 ). The reason for Doeg's remaining at the Tabernacle is not given. Perhaps he was there to fulfill a vow, receive an oracle, perform an act of penance, or to celebrate a holiday. 1 Samuel 21:6 suggests that it was the Sabbath. (See Mark 2:25-26 ).
