Verse-by-Verse Bible Commentary

2 Chronicles 5:5

 

 

They brought up the ark and the tent of meeting and all the holy utensils which were in the tent; the Levitical priests brought them up.

Wesley's Explanatory Notes

And they brought up the ark, and the tabernacle of the congregation, and all the holy vessels that were in the tabernacle, these did the priests and the Levites bring up.

The ark — The ark was a type of Christ, and a token of the presence of God. That gracious promise, Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world, does in effect bring the ark into our religious assemblies, if we claim it by faith and prayer. And this we should be earnest for: the temple itself, if Christ leave it, is a desolate place.

Those … — As many of them as were fit for use, it is probable, were still used. The rest were carefully laid up, as monuments of antiquity.

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

(5) These did the priests and the Levites bring up.—Heb., the priests the Levites (which some explain “the Levitical priests,” as in Joshua 3:3) brought them up. But some Hebrew MSS. LXX., and Syriac, read “the priests and the Levites;” Arab., “the Levites and the priests;” and Vulg., “the priests with the Levites.” Above all, 1 Kings 8:4 has, “And the priests and the Levites brought them up.” It appears, therefore, that the conjunction is rightly supplied by the Authorised Version.
