Preparations for the removal of the Ark. (1-24) The removal of
the Ark. (25-29)

1-24 Wise and good men may be guilty of oversights, which they
will correct, as soon as they are aware of them. David does not
try to justify what had been done amiss, nor to lay the blame On
others; but he owns himself guilty, with others, of not seeking
God in due order

25-29 It is good to notice the assistance of Divine Providence,
even in things which fall within the compass of our natural
powers; if God did not help us, we could not stir a step. If we
do our religious duties in any degree aright, we must own it was
God that helped us; had we been left to ourselves, we should
have been guilty of some fatal errors. And every thing in which
we engage, must be done in dependence On the Mercy of God
through the Sacrifice of the Redeemer.
