2 Samuel 6: The Ark of the Covenant Comes to Jerusalem

Old Testament Seminary Student Study Guide, (2002), 100

After the Israelites got the ark of the covenant back from the Philistines, they put the ark in a safe place and guarded it from being captured again. In 2 Samuel 6 it tells how David established Jerusalem as the capitol city of Israel and decided to house the ark of the covenant there to symbolize that the Lord was with them in their capitol.
