17 The chariots of God are tens of thousands
and thousands of thousands;
the Lord has come from Sinai into his sanctuary.
This is a celebration of the final stage of a journey. The Ark of the Covenant was constructed at Mount Sinai. Then, was moved to the final sanctuary site at Mount Zion. Mount Zion was the chosen dwelling place of God among his people. This was a time of joy. When you have God’s presence in your life, you have joy. Life is not easy, and there are tough times, but when God is with you, you have a joy and peace as you move through life.
