[And David again gathered together all the chosen men of Israel, thirty thousand.]

(The narrative goes back.) 5 [So David assembled all Israel

together, from Shihor of Egypt even unto the entering in of Hamath, to bring the ark of God

from Kiriath-jearim.] 6 And David went up, and all Israel, to Baalah,

[to Kiriath-jearim, which belonged to] Judah, to bring up from thence the ark of God,

And they set the ark of God upon a new cart, [and brought it] out of the house of Abinadab (that was in the hill] : and Uzza band Ahio, [the sons of

Abinadab,] drave the [new] cart. 4 [And they brought it out of the

house of Abinadab, which was in the hill, with the ark of God :

and Ahio went before the ark.] 5 And David and all the house

of] Israel played before the LORD with all manner of fir wood,

§ 4.—A Though the readings are different, the sense is nearly the same; cf. Josh. 15. 9, 60. Baalah is also called Kirjath Baal and Kirjath Jearim; it belonged to Judah ; see LXX.

b There is a tendency in B. to substitute a final X in proper names for 17. In A. v. 3, we have in the Heb. Uzza, but in v. 6 and the later verses Uzzah. In B., Uzza throughout.

c with all manner of firwood' (d'una 'y 553) answers to B. v. 8, ' with all their might, even with songs' (Diwan ny-boa). We evidently have two readings representing the same original text; LXX agrees with B. The variations in the

[ [Chron., Ezra, Neh.] and A. Dibby [Ps. 150. 5 only in this sense); B. 71739) are noteworthy as indicating a tendency to specialize or modernize. The fourth of these words is used sixteen times in Chron. It is the name of the alarm trumpet in Num. 10, and is also referred to in 2 Kings 11. 14 and 12. 13, Hos. 5. 8, and Ps. 98. 6. The substitution of Chidon (17'3) for Nachon (1933) may possibly be textual, but see LXX.

B. is apparently a mistaken reading for A.; the word in the sense of B. is not used elsewhere (but see the Chaldean word for hat in Dan. 3. 21). B. drifts off for the moment to incorporate a Levitical note, and then returns. This is the only occasion on which a 'layman’ is said to have worn the Levitical ephod. Whilst A. and B. refer to the linen ephod, B. also refers to the upper garment (the robe of the ephod, Ex. 28. 31). Cf. Samuel's coat or mantle, 1 Sam. 2. 19; 28. 14. c B. substitutes two ordinary words for those in A., which occur nowhere else, with the whole passage of Ps. 47. 5. d B. substitutes the ordinary 7 (a round bun) for nbn, which is only used in Exod., Lev., Num., and in this passage of A.
