Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Kings 9:24-25

_ _ 1 Kings 9:24-28. Solomon’s yearly sacrifices.

_ _ three times in a year — namely, at the Passover, Pentecost, and Feast of Tabernacles (2 Chronicles 8:13; 2 Chronicles 31:3). The circumstances mentioned in these two verses form a proper conclusion to the record of his buildings and show that his design in erecting those at Jerusalem was to remedy defects existing at the commencement of his reign (see 1 Kings 3:1-4).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Kings 9:15-28.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 9:25

Three times — That is, at the three solemn feasts: and undoubtedly at all other appointed times.
