Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on 1 Chronicles 13:1-3.


1 Chronicles 13:2

_ _ If it seem good unto you, and ... it be of the Lord — that is, I shall conclude that this favorite measure of mine is agreeable to the mind of God, if it receive your hearty concurrence.

_ _ let us send abroad to our brethren everywhere — He wished to make it known throughout the country, in order that there might be a general assembly of the nation, and that preparations might be made on a scale and of a kind suitable to the inauguration of the august ceremonial.

_ _ with them also to the priests and Levites ... in their cities and suburbs — (See on Numbers 35:2). The original terms, “Let us send,” imply immediate execution; and, doubtless, the publication of the royal edict would have been followed by the appointment of an early day for the contemplated solemnity, had it not been retarded by a sudden invasion of the Philistines, who were twice repulsed with great loss (2 Samuel 5:17), by the capture of Jerusalem, and the transference of the seat of government to that city. Finding, however, soon after, peace restored and his throne established, he resumed his preparations for removing the ark to the metropolis.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Chronicles 13:1-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Chronicles 13:2

David said — After this was proposed by the king and accepted by the people, this great assembly was dismissed, only some of them David reserved to go with him against Jerusalem, which accordingly he did, and succeeded in his enterprize. But before this resolution could be executed, the Philistines came and fought twice with David, as is related 2 Samuel 5:17, 2 Samuel 5:22, &c. and here 1 Chronicles 14:8, &c. And after they were repulsed with great loss and shame, David sets upon the execution of what he had resolved, and in order to it calls another general assembly of the people. Of the Lord — If this translation of the ark be pleasing to God. Are left — After the great desolations and destructions which God for their sins had made among them.
