And the men of Kirjathjearim came, and fetched up the ark of the LORD, and brought it into the house of Abinadab in the hill, and sanctified Eleazar his son to keep the ark of the LORD.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

7:1 Kirjath-jearim. Kirjath-jearim was a city belonging to Benjamin (Joshua 18:21,28), as also were Ramah and Mizpeh (note I Samuel 7:6,17). However, Eleazar was presumably qualified to be a priest and, since he and all the house of Abinadab treated the ark reverently, no harm resulted to Abinadab and his household during the years the ark remained there.
