    Made him houses - One for himself, and one for the ark; in the latter was a tent, under which the ark was placed.

    Barnes' Notes on 1 Chronicles 15:1

    And pitched for it a tent - The old "tent" or "tabernacle" was still in existence at Gibeon 1 Chronicles 16:39; 2 Chronicles 1:3; but the ark had long been separated from it, and David probably thought that something newer and more magnificent was requisite. He therefore allowed the former tabernacle to keep its place, and had another made and erected.

    Wesley's Notes on 1 Chronicles 15:1

    15:1 Houses - A palace consisting of many houses or apartments for his several wives and children. A tent - He did not fetch the tabernacle of Moses from Gibeon, because he intended forthwith to build the temple.
