People's Dictionary of the Bible - Obed-Edom
Obed-edom (ô'bed-ç'dom) servant of Edom. 1. A Gittite who lived in David's time, 1 Chronicles 13:13, and at whose house the ark was left, after the dreadful death of Uzzah. 2 Samuel 6:6-10. The blessing which came on the house of Obed-edom for the ark's sake encouraged David to remove it to Jerusalem. 2 Samuel 6:10 to 2 Samuel 12:2. The temple-treasurer in the reign of Amaziah. 2 Chronicles 25:24.
Easton's Bible Dictionary - Obed-Edom
Servant of Edom.
"The Gittite" (probably so called because he was a native of Gath-rimmon), a Levite of the family of the Korhites (1 Chronicles 26:1,4-8 ), to whom was specially intrusted the custody of the ark (1 Chronicles 15:18 ). When David was bringing up the ark "from the house of Abinadab, that was in Gibeah" (probably some hill or eminence near Kirjath-jearim), and had reached Nachon's threshing-floor, he became afraid because of the "breach upon Uzzah," and carried it aside into the house of Obededom (2 Samuel 6:1-12 ). There it remained for six months, and was to him and his house the occasion of great blessing. David then removed it with great rejoicing to Jerusalem, and set it in the midst of the tabernacle he had pitched for it.
A Merarite Levite, a temple porter, who with his eight sons guarded the southern gate (1 Chronicles 15:18,21 ; 26:4,8,15 ).
One who had charge of the temple treasures (2 Chronicles 25:24 ).

In his house David deposited the ark after the death of Uzzah, and here it remained three months, bringing a blessing by its presence ( 2 Samuel 6:10 f., 1 Chronicles 13:14 ).

(oh' behd-ee' duhm) A Personal name meaning, “serving Edom .”
1. A Philistine from Gath who apparently was loyal to David and Israel. At Obed-edom's house David left the ark of the covenant following the death of Uzzah at the hand of God (2 Samuel 6:6-11 ). Obed-edom was unusually blessed of God (probably a reference to prosperity) during the three months the ark was at his house. 2. A Levite who served as both gatekeeper and musician in the tabernacle in Jerusalem during David's reign (1Chronicles 15:18,1 Chronicles 15:24 ; 1 Chronicles 16:5 ). His duties related especially to the ark of the covenant. A guild of Levites may have adopted the name “Obed-edom” as their title as keepers of the ark.
3. A member of the Korhites (1Chronicles 26:1,1 Chronicles 26:4-8 ) who kept the south of the Temple (1 Chronicles 26:15 ).

Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Obed Edom
1. 2 Samuel 6:11. (On his title "the Gittite".) Gath-rimmon was a city of the Levite Kohathites in Dan (Joshua 21:24). He was a Kohathite and distinguished by his title "Gittite" from Obed Edom, son of Jeduthun, a Merarite (1 Chronicles 16:38). (See GITTITE.) Lived near Perez Uzzah, on the way from Kirjath Jearim to Jerusalem. After Uzzah's stroke David in fear took the ark aside to the house of Obed Edom. Instead of the Levites bearing the ark (as was commanded, Numbers 7:9), David had put it in a cart, in the Philistine fashion (1 Samuel 6:8). His turning aside from the direct way to go to Obed Edom's house is accounted for by his sudden fear owing to the punishment of Uzzah's presumption; he goes to a Kohathite Levite, one of the family especially appointed to bear the ark on their shoulders, and deposits the ark with him, conscious that he himself might have been punished for irregularity.
Accordingly, in 1 Chronicles 15 we find the ark was no longer taken in a cart, but borne on the Levites' shoulders, with Obed Edom "a doorkeeper for the ark," and it is emphatically said it was "as Moses commanded, according to the word of Jehovah" (1 Chronicles 15:15; 1 Chronicles 15:18; 1 Chronicles 15:24). The minute propriety of these details establishes the truthfulness of the narrative of the divine visitation on Uzzah. The Lord blessed Obed Edom and all his household in consequence during its three months' stay with him; so David brought it up front Obed Edom's house with joy. While the ark brought a plague every one was glad to be rid of it; but when it brought a blessing to Obed Edom, they wished for it. Many will own a blessing ark; he is an Obed Edom indeed that will own a persecuted, tossed, banished ark (Trapp). "God blessed him" with eight sons who were temple porters (1 Chronicles 26:1-5; 1 Chronicles 26:8).
Obed Edom and his sons guarded the S. temple gate and the house Αsuppim , i.e. "of gatherings", a store of the temple goods near the S. gate in the outer court (1 Chronicles 26:15). Obed Edom was doorkeeper for the ark (1 Chronicles 15:24). Those whom the Lord hath blessed, and who have received God's ark into their home and heart, are best fitted to serve in the sanctuary and to open the kingdom of heaven ministerially. The site of his house is still pointed out, a very green plateau, Κuryet es saideh "the abode of the blessed," on the way from Kirjath Jearim to Jerusalem, a little beyond Khirbet el Uz (Perez Uzzah). In 1 Chronicles 16:38 Obed Edom the singer appears distinct from Obed Edom the "porter" or gatekeeper (1 Chronicles 16:4-5; 1 Chronicles 16:38). Obed Edom and his colleagues could not possibly at the same time as porters precede, and as singers come after, the priests and the ark.
2. (See OBED EDOM (1).) A Merarite Levite of the second degree (1 Chronicles 16:38).
3. A Levite in Amaziah's time, having charge of the vessels of God's house, taken captive with the king by Joash king of Israel at Bethshemesh battle (2 Chronicles 25:23-24). Probably sprung from "Obed Edom the Gittite." The blessed of the Lord shall dwell in the Lord's house forever.
Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Obed
1. Son of Boaz and Ruth (Ruth 4:17); father of Jesse, David's father (1 Chronicles 2:12; Matthew 1:5; Luke 3:22). Hannah in her song (1 Samuel 2:5; 1 Samuel 2:7; 1 Samuel 2:10, "they that were hungry ceased ... the barren hath borne seven ... the Lord maketh poor and maketh rich") apparently alludes to Ruth's experience as reproduced in her own. Ruth poor and gleaning in the grain becomes wife of Boaz, the "mighty man of wealth." From her springs "the Anointed King" Messiah, of whom Hannah sings. The famine which drove Elimelech's sons to Moab was not long before, due in part to Philistine inroads (compare 1 Samuel 4). The women congratulated Naomi on Obed's birth: "the Lord hath not left thee without a kinsman (goel "redeemer"), that his name may be famous in Israel, and he shall be ... a nourisher of thine old age, for thy daughter in law, which is better to thee than sorest sons, hath borne him" (Ruth 4:14-15).
2. 1 Chronicles 2:37-38.
3. 1 Chronicles 11:47.
4. 1 Chronicles 26:7.
5. Father of Azariah. (2 Chronicles 23:1).

Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary - Obed
a prophet of the Lord, who, being at Samaria when the Israelites of the ten tribes returned from the war with their King Pekah, together with two hundred thousand of the people of Judah, whom they had taken captive, went out to meet them; and through his remonstrances the captives were liberated, 2 Chronicles 28. This circumstance is all that is recorded concerning Obed.
Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary - Obed-Edom
son of Jeduthun, a Levite, 1 Chronicles 16:38 , and the father of Shemaiah and others, 1 Chronicles 16:5 . We learn that the Lord blessed this man exceedingly, on account of the ark resting under his roof, 2 Samuel 6:10-11 . David having removed the ark to the place he had previously prepared for its reception, Obed-Edom and his sons were appointed to be keepers of the doors of the temple, 1 Chronicles 15:18 ; 1 Chronicles 15:21 . Obed-Edom is called the Gittite, probably because he was of Gathrimmon, a city of the Levites beyond Jordan, Joshua 21:24-25 .

A Levite, whose special prosperity while keeper of the ark after the dreadful death of Uzziah encouraged David to carry it up to Jerusalem. Obed-edom and his sons were made doorkeepers of the tabernacle at Jerusalem, 2 Samuel 6:10-12 ; 1 Chronicles 15:18-24 ; 16:38 ; 26:4 - 8,15 .

The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Obed-Edom
We have the honourable testimony which God the Holy Ghost gave of this man, 2 Samuel 6:9-12; and again recorded, 1 Chronicles 13:13-14. And his numerous family, 1 Chronicles 26:4-5. His name is compounded of Obed, slave—and Edom, or the Idumean. But as Obed-jah, the prophet, was called the slave or labourer of the Lord, so Obed-edom, the slave of the Adam or Edom, the earth or earthy, was eminently the Lord's chosen for that peculiar service of receiving the ark, when David himself trembled on the occasion.
But I hope the reader, in beholding the blessing of the Lord upon Obed-edom and his house, for the ark of God's sake, will not overlook the cause. That ark was a type of the ever-blessed Jesus. In receiving the ark into his house, into his family, and among his people, he did, to all intents and purposes, receive Christ into his heart, and like the faithful descendant of the faithful Abraham, "saw the day of Christ afar off, rejoiced, and was glad."
Obed-edom was no stranger to the dreadful consequences which had fallen on the Philistines for their daring impiety, in taking the ark of God, and detaining it. He could be no stranger to the awful death of Uzzah, for touching it presumptuously; for, no doubt, it was in every one's mouth. Nay, he could not but know that the reason wherefore David wished Obed-edom to take the ark into his house was, because he was afraid to take it into his own. What was it then, that prompted the mind of this pious faithful Gittite to receive the ark of God under such alarming circumstances? What was it, but thy grace almighty Lord, that taught him to rejoice in thee and thy favour, while others were trembling under thy judgments? Oh! the blessedness of' distinguishing grace, which makes that to thy people "a savour of life unto life," whilst to others it becomes"a savour of death unto death." Three whole months was Obed-edom favoured with the abode of the ark. No doubt, the tokens of the divine presence were so visibly bestowed upon this man and his household, that the whole neighborhood, yea, the whole kingdom, could not but take notice of it; for it is said, "that it was told king David, saying, the Lord hath blessed the house of Obed-edom, and all that pertained to him, because of the ark of God," 2 Samuel 6:12.
Hear this ye parents, masters of families, and guardians of houses, interested in your own present and everlasting welfare, and that of your young ones of the rising generation. Behold the blessedness in Obed-edom, and all that pertained to him, for receiving the ark of God into his house. And observe the special time when this was done. It was when others trembled, he was made hold with an holy boldness. When none ventured to serve the interest of God, and to receive his ark, he was faithful.
And what is it now? If that ark was a type of Christ, who are they that may be said to be faithful in the midst of the present perverse and crooked generation, but they who receive Christ Jesus the Lord into their hearts, and houses, and families, whilst others despise him! Who are the Obed-edoms of the present day, but such as receive Christ Jesus the Lord, and walk in him, and live to him, and rejoice in him, as the Lord our Righteousness! And if there ever was a day of peculiar blessedness, for the manifesting this distinguishing love to Jesus and his cause, surely the present is the one. Oh! for grace, therefore, that while the ark of God, the Christ of God, is shut out of such numberless houses in this adulterous and sinful generation, many an Obed-edom may yet be found in our British Israel to welcome the Lord Jesus to their hearts, and he, and he alone, be formed there the hope of glory. Hail Obed-edom, thou faithful servant of thy Lord! Ever will thy memory be blessed in the church; and when the temple of God is opened again in heaven, as it was to the beloved apostle (Revelation 11:19.) and the ark of the Testament is beheld by the whole church, still will it be held in everlasting remembrance how the Lord blessed the house of Obed-edom upon earth, for the ark of God's sake.
