Treasury of Scripture

1 Chronicles 16:1,2
So they brought the ark of God, and set it in the midst of the tent that David had pitched for it: and they offered burnt sacrifices and peace offerings before God…









(6) Assembled.--(N?'ad, to meet at an appointed time and place, Exodus 25:22). Not the same word as in 2Chronicles 5:2-3 (q?hal), of which the root meaning is probably to call together.

Before the ark.--By the omission of a single Hebrew word ['itto] before this phrase, the whole form of the sentence is altered from that of Kings. There we read "(were) with him before the Ark sacrificing," &c.

Sacrificed.--Were sacrificing.

And the priests . . .--The verse is wholly identical with 1Kings 8:6 (see Notes there).

Verse 6. - King Solomon and all the congregation... sacrificed; i.e., of course, with the intervention of their priests.
