Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Samuel 7:2

_ _ the ark abode in Kirjath-jearim ... twenty years — It appears, in the subsequent history, that a much longer period elapsed before its final removal from Kirjath-jearim (2 Samuel 6:1-19; 1 Chronicles 13:1-14). But that length of time had passed when the Israelites began to revive from their sad state of religious decline. The capture of the ark had produced a general indifference either as to its loss or its recovery.

_ _ all the house of Israel lamented after the Lord — They were then brought, doubtless by the influence of Samuel’s exhortations, to renounce idolatry, and to return to the national worship of the true God.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Samuel 7:1-2.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Samuel 7:2

Kirjath — jearim — Where it continued, and was not carried to Shiloh its former place, either because that place was destroyed by the Philistines when the ark was taken, or because God would hereby punish the wickedness of the people of Israel, by keeping it in a private place near the Philistines, whether the generality of the people durst not come. Twenty years — He saith not, that this twenty years was all the time of the ark's abode there, for it continued there from Eli's time 'till David's reign, 2 Samuel 6:2, which was forty years: but that it was so long there before the Israelites were sensible of their sin and misery. Lamented — That is, they followed after God with lamentations for his departure, and prayers for his return.
