John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Chronicles 23:25

For David said
As a reason why he ordered a new account to be taken:

the Lord God of Israel hath given rest unto his people:
from all their enemies round about, and settled rest in the land, so that there was no danger of being carried captive, as they were time after time in the days of the Judges, and whereby they became more numerous:

that they may dwell in Jerusalem for ever;
where the temple would always continue, and not be removed, as the ark and tabernacle had been, and where all Israel would appear three times in the year continually.
