Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Chronicles 17:5

_ _ I ... have gone from tent to tent, and from one tabernacle to another — The literal rendering is, “I was walking in a tent and in a dwelling.” The evident intention (as we may see from 1 Chronicles 17:6) was to lay stress upon the fact that God was a Mithhatlek (a travelling God) and went from one place to another with His tent and His entire dwelling (the dwelling included not merely the tent, but the fore-courts with the altar of burnt offerings, etc.) [Bertheau].
