They brought the Chest of God and placed it right in the center of the tent that David had pitched for it; then they worshiped by presenting burnt offerings and peace offerings to God.

Then he passed around to every one there, men and women alike, a loaf of bread, a slice of barbecue, and a raisin cake.
