1 Chronicles 15

* Preparations for the removal of the ark. (1-24) The removal of

the ark. (25-29)

1-24 Wise and good men may be guilty of oversights, which they

will correct, as soon as they are aware of them. David does not

try to justify what had been done amiss, nor to lay the blame on

others; but he owns himself guilty, with others, of not seeking

God in due order
25-29 It is good to notice the assistance of Divine Providence,

even in things which fall within the compass of our natural

powers; if God did not help us, we could not stir a step. If we

do our religious duties in any degree aright, we must own it was

God that helped us; had we been left to ourselves, we should

have been guilty of some fatal errors. And every thing in which

we engage, must be done in dependence on the mercy of God

through the sacrifice of the Redeemer.
