New Defender's Study Bible Notes

6:13 sacrificed oxen and fatlings. There were many priests and Levites that accompanied the ark to Jerusalem. David offered many burnt offerings and peace offerings in the process, no doubt with the priests officiating in the manner prescribed by Moses. If he had tried to assume the priestly role himself, God would no doubt have rebuked him in some way, as Samuel did when Saul tried to usurp the priests’ functions (I Samuel 13:9-14).
