1 Chronicles 15:28
(28) Thus all Israel brought.--And all Israel were bringing. Samuel has "and David and all the house of Israel," and "ark of the Lord."

Cornet.--Rather, trumpet.

The rest of this verse is wanting in Samuel, but all the additional instruments have already been mentioned (1Chronicles 15:16-21).

Trumpets.--Clarions, or straight trumpets.

The last clause should be rendered, "and with clanging cymbals, with harps and lutes." (Comp. Psalm 150:3-4.)

Verse 28. - Making a noise. This description qualifies the cymbals alone, and should rather appear in our translation as "noise-making cymbals."

15:25-29 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.Thus all Israel brought up the ark of the covenant of the Lord with shouting,.... See 2 Samuel 6:15.
