Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Chronicles 7:7

_ _ Solomon hallowed the middle of the court — On this extraordinary occasion, when a larger number of animals were offered than one altar and the usual place of rings to which the animals were bound would admit, the whole space was taken in that was between the place of rings and the west end of the court to be used as a temporary place for additional altars. On that part of the spacious court holocausts were burning all round.
