to Nob to Ahimelech
1 Samuel 21:1
21:1 to Nob to Ahimelech. Nob was a town near Jerusalem. Apparently, when Shiloh was destroyed, the tabernacle was moved to Nob, and Ahimelech, a descendant of Eli, was officiating there as high priest. The ark was not there at this time, but the ephod (I Samuel 21:9) and the shewbread (I Samuel 21:6) indicate that at least some of the regular activities at the tabernacle were continuing.
