Treasury of Scripture

Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed;

I will not

Ecclesiastes 9:10
Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.

Haggai 1:4
Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house lie waste?

Matthew 6:33
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.









(3-5) It is vain to search the historical accounts for this vow. It may be implied from 2Samuel 7:2, and from the persistent purpose which David certainly nourished. The LXX. and Vulg. give the vow in even greater detail, adding, "and rest to my temples."

(3) Tabernacle.--We have in the mention of tent either a reminiscence of the old nomadic times of the race, or an allusion to David's own wandering and warlike habits.

Verse 3. - Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house. I will not take up my abode quietly and comfortably in my own solid and substantial house (see 2 Samuel 5:11). Nor go up into my bed. Indulge, i.e., in luxurious repose. (Fur a contrary feeling on the part of some Israelites, see Haggai 1:4.)
