(2) The burnt offerings.—Heb., the burnt offering, as if one great holocaust were meant. This verse is identical with 2Samuel 6:18, only omitting Sabaoth at the end, a Divine title which was perhaps obsolete in the chronicler’s day.

He blessed the people in the name of the Lord.—Comp. Numbers 6:22-27; 1Kings 8:14; 1Kings 8:55; Deuteronomy 33:1.

16:1-6 Though God's word and ordinances may be clouded and eclipsed for a time, they shall shine out of obscurity. This was but a tent, a humble dwelling, yet this was the tabernacle which David, in his psalms, often speaks of with so much affection. David showed himself generous to his subjects, as he had found God gracious to him. Those whose hearts are enlarged with holy joy, should show it by being open-handed.The first three verses form part of the narrative commenced at 1 Chronicles 15:25. Compare 2 Samuel 6:17-19, where the passage is not torn from its proper context. 2. he blessed the people in the name of the Lord—The king commended their zeal, supplicated the divine blessing upon them, and ordered the remains of the thank offerings which had been profusely sacrificed during the procession, to be distributed in certain proportions to every individual, that the ceremonial might terminate with appropriate festivities (De 12:7). No text from Poole on this verse.

So they brought the ark of God,.... What is contained in these three verses is the same with 2 Samuel 6:17, see the notes there. See Gill on 2 Samuel 6:17. See Gill on 2 Samuel 6:18. See Gill on 2 Samuel 6:19. And when David had made an end of offering the burnt offerings and the peace offerings, he {a} blessed the people in the name of the LORD.

(a) He called upon the Name of God, desiring him to prosper the people, and give good success to their beginnings.

2. blessed the people] Cp. 2 Chronicles 6:3.

Verse 2. - He blessed the people in the name of the Lord; i.e. reverently in the Name of the Lord, and as vividly conscious of being in his presence, he pronounces blessings upon the people, and by short ejaculatory prayer and holy wish further begs for them those blessings which God only can give. In the time of David and Solomon (1 Kings 8:14) the king realized far more closely the idea of the paternal relation to the people than had ever been since the time of the patriarchs of the elder days. 1 Chronicles 16:2The religious festival, and the arrangement of the sacred service before the ark of the covenant in the city of David. - This section is not found in 2nd Samuel, where the Conclusion of this whole description (1 Chronicles 16:43, Chron.) follows immediately upon the feasting of the people by the king, 1 Chronicles 16:19 and 1 Chronicles 16:20.
