And they brought up the ark of the Lord
From the city of David to the temple:
and the tabernacle of the congregation;
not the tent David made for the ark, though that might be brought also, but the tabernacle of Moses, which had been many years at Gibeon; but now removed to Zion, and from thence to the temple, where it was laid up, as having been a sacred thing; that it might not be put to common or superstitious uses, and to prevent the being of more places than one for worship:
and all the holy vessels that were in the tabernacle;
as the candlestick, shewbread table, incense altar
even those did the priests and the Levites bring up;
some brought one, and some another; the priests brought the ark, and the Levites the vessels.
