Bible Commentary for 2 Samuel 6:14

Wesley's Notes for 2 Samuel 6:14


6:14 Danced - To express his thankfulness to God by his outward carriage, according to the manner of those times. Linen ephod - The usual habit of the priests and Levites, in their sacred ministrations yet sometimes worn by others, as it was by the young child Samuel; and so David, who laid by his royal robes, and put on this robe to declare, that although he was king of Israel, yet he willingly owned himself to be the Lord's minister and servant.

    By throwing off the royal robes he uncovered himself. He had on the garments that went under the ephod. Which are long pants and a tunic. The evil wife of his was refeing to the dance and taking off the royal robe. I will never believe he danced stark naked before the LORD unless the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY says HE did.

  • Timothy Wayne George on 2 Samuel 6:14
    King David shows his gratitude to Jehovah by dancing before the Ark of the Covenant, in the linen ephod, the attire of priest, and he gives us a pattern as ministers how we are to serve God. My daughter loves to dance, as the team captain for her drill team, and I shared this scripture with her, and told her to dance before the Lord with all her might. Paul told us that whatever we do, do all to the glory of God. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
