(12) God . . . ark of God.--Here and in 1Chronicles 13:8; 1Chronicles 13:14, &c. Samuel has Jehovah. The chronicler or his authority has avoided the frequent use of that most holy Name.

Saying.--Samuel, "and said."

How.--Hek, an Aramaic form, perhaps due to a transcriber rather than to the author.

Shall I bring.--Samuel, "shall come." Two different voices of the same verb.

13:6-14 Let the sin of Uzza warn all to take heed of presumption, rashness, and irreverence, in dealing with holy things; and let none think that a good design will justify a bad action. Let the punishment of Uzza teach us not to dare to trifle with God in our approaches to him; yet let us, through Christ, come boldly to the throne of grace. If the gospel be to some a savour of death unto death, as the ark was to Uzza, yet let us receive it in the love of it, and it will be to us a savour of life unto life.
