John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Samuel 15:25

Carry back — Out of care and reverence to the ark, which though it might be carried our to a certain place; yet he might justly think unfit to carry it from place to place he knew not whither, and out of respect to the priests, whom, by this means, he thought he should expose to the rage of Absalom, as he had before exposed them to Saul's fury. Habitation — That is, the tabernacle which David had lately built for it, 2 Samuel 6:17, in which the ark, and God, by means hereof, ordinarily dwelt.
