Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Kings 8:65

_ _ 1 Kings 8:65. The People joyful.

_ _ from the entering in of Hamath unto the river of Egypt — that is, from one extremity of the kingdom to the other. The people flocked from all quarters.

_ _ seven days and seven days, even fourteen days — The first seven were occupied with the dedication, and the other seven devoted to the feast of tabernacles (2 Chronicles 7:9). The particular form of expression indicates that the fourteen days were not continuous. Some interval occurred in consequence of the great day of atonement falling on the tenth of the seventh month (1 Kings 8:2), and the last day of the feast of tabernacles was on the twenty-third (2 Chronicles 7:10), when the people returned to their homes with feelings of the greatest joy and gratitude “for all the goodness that the Lord had done for David his servant, and for Israel his people.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Kings 8:62-66.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 8:65

Seven — Seven for the dedication of the temple, or altar; and the other seven for the feast of tabernacles. And it seems to be expressed in this manner, to intimate, that these fourteen days of rejoicing, were not altogether, but that there was some interval between them, which indeed was necessary, because the day of atonement was on the tenth day of this month, Leviticus 23:27. And because these fourteen days ended on the twenty — second day, 2 Chronicles 7:10, it may seem most probable, that the feast of the dedication was kept before the tenth day: and the feast of tabernacles some days after it.
