And he left Zadok the priest, and his brothers the priests, before the tabernacle of Yahweh at the high place that was at Gibeon Bible

“the tabernacle of Yahweh at the high place that was at Gibeon.” Here we see that at some time, most likely during the reign of David, Moses’ Tent of Meeting (the “Tabernacle”) was moved from Shiloh to Gibeon. The Bible does not contain any information as to when or why that happened, and that is especially interesting because Gibeon was a Canaanite city. But it may have been moved there because even though the Gibeonites were Canaanites, they agreed in a covenant that if the Israelites spared their lives and allowed them to live, they would be water and wood carriers for the Tent of Meeting (Josh. 9, esp. Josh. 9:21, 27).
