2 Samuel 6:15

So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the
Lord
The elders of Israel, and the captains over thousands, ( 1 Chronicles 15:25 ) ; besides the common people; there might be as large a number with him now as before:

with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet;
with the shouts of the people in common, and with blowing of trumpets by those who were appointed for that purpose, and with other instruments of music, see ( 1 Chronicles 15:27 1 Chronicles 15:28 ) ; Josephus says F18, that seven choirs went before the priests bearing the ark, as the king commanded, he himself playing on the harp; so the Septuagint version.
