1 Chronicles 13* David consults about the ark. (1-5) The removal of the ark.(6-14)1-5 David said not, What magnificent thing shall I do now? or,What pleasant thing? but, What pious thing? that he might havethe comfort and benefit of that sacred oracle. Let us bring theark to us, that it may be a blessing to us. Those who honourGod, profit themselves. It is the wisdom of those setting out inthe world, to take God's ark with them. Those are likely to goon in the favour of God, who begin in the fear of God. 6-14 Let the sin of Uzza warn all to take heed of presumption,rashness, and irreverence, in dealing with holy things; and letnone think that a good design will justify a bad action. Let thepunishment of Uzza teach us not to dare to trifle with God inour approaches to him; yet let us, through Christ, come boldlyto the throne of grace. If the gospel be to some a savour ofdeath unto death, as the ark was to Uzza, yet let us receive itin the love of it, and it will be to us a savour of life untolife.
