II Samuel 6

Chapter 6

v. 3:  They brought the ark out of the house of Abinadab, but from I Chronicles 15:13 it is evident that nobody in the house of Abinadab was a Levite; this fact, no doubt, is what led to the accident recorded in verse six.  Perhaps, in addition to being unauthorized to carry the ark, Uzziah and Ahio were just ignorant of the proper way to carry the ark since they were not Levites.

v. 11:  Obed-Edom is called a Gittite, which probably is a reference to the city of Gath Rimmon.  If the ark was carried to Gath Rimmon, the trip was farther than the distance left to Jerusalem.  Such a trip is conceivable, I suppose, but it does seem odd, given that David was afraid of the ark after Uzziah’s accident.  It seems more likely that David would have deposited it at the nearest logical location.  Perhaps Obed-Edom simply was born in Gath Rimmon but lived elsewhere at this time.  At any rate, it is likely that he was a Levite (I Chronicles 15:18), which would make him an attractive candidate for keeping the ark at this point.

v. 14: The linen ephod was a priest’s garment (I Chronicles 15:27).
