David summoned the entire Nation of Israel to bring the Aron HaBrit to its place in the heart of Yerushalayim. Such a public demonstration was necessary because this was a truly momentous event: King David was bringing the spiritual center, or focal point, of the people to the spiritual center of the land. This highlights the never-ending bond between the People of Israel and the Land of Israel, which is cemented by their covenant with the God of Israel.
