Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Kings 8:64

_ _ The same day did the king hallow the middle of the court — that is, the whole extent of the priests’ court — the altar of burnt offerings, though large (2 Chronicles 4:1), being totally inadequate for the vast number of sacrifices that distinguished this occasion. It was only a temporary erection to meet the demands of an extraordinary season, in aid of the established altar, and removed at the conclusion of the sacred festival. [See on 2 Chronicles 7:7.]

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Kings 8:62-66.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 8:64

Middle of the court — Of the priests court, in which the great altar was. This he consecrated as he did the great altar, by sacrifices; but with this difference, that he consecrated that for perpetual use: but this only for the present occasion, being warranted to do so both by the necessity of it for God's service, and for the present solemn work, for which the brazen altar was not sufficient; and by the direction of God's spirit, wherewith Solomon was endowed, as being a prophet, as well as a king. Here therefore he suddenly reared up divers altars, which, after this solemnity were demolished.
