9:22 Villages - Where their usual residence was, and whence they cameto Jerusalem in their courses. Ordain - In the times of the judgesthere was much disorder both in the Jewish state and church, and theLevites came to the tabernacle promiscuously, and as their inclinationsor occasions brought them. But Samuel observing they were greatlyincreased, began to think of establishing order in their ministration.And these intentions of his probably were communicated to David, whoafter his own peaceable settlement in his throne, revived and perfectedSamuel's design, and took care to put it in execution.

9:23 The oversight - Namely, in David's time. Tabernacle - Thisis added to explain what he means by the house of the Lord, not thattabernacle which David had set up for the ark; but that more solemntabernacle, which Moses had made by God's express command; which inDavid's time was at Gibeon; in which God was worshipped until thetemple was built. Wards - By turns or courses.

9:25 To come - From their several villages to the place of worship.Seven days - Every seventh day the courses were changed, and the newcomers were to tarry 'till the next sabbath day. With them - To be withthem, with the chief porters, who alway's abode in the place of God'sworship.
