Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Chronicles 15:26

_ _ it came to pass, etc. — (See on 2 Samuel 6:13-23).

_ _ they offered seven bullocks and seven rams — The Levites seem to have entered on this duty with fear and trembling; and finding that they might advance without any such indications of divine wrath as Uzza had experienced (1 Chronicles 13:10), they offered an ox and a fatted sheep immediately after starting (2 Samuel 6:13), and seven bullocks and seven rams — a perfect sacrifice, at the close of the procession (1 Chronicles 16:1). It is probable that preparations had been made for the offering of similar sacrifices at regular intervals along the way.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Chronicles 15:25-29.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Chronicles 15:26

Helped — Encouraging them in their work with some comfortable sign of his presence with them. In all our religious exercises, we must derive help from heaven. God's ministers that bare the vessels of the Lord, have special need of divine help in their ministrations, that God may be glorified thereby, and the people edified.
