Geneva Study Bible

Wherefore all the men of Israel assembled themselves unto the king in the b feast which [was] in the seventh c month.

(b) When the things were dedicated and brought into the temple.

(c) Called in Hebrew Ethanim, containing part of September and part of October, (1 Kings 8:2), which moves the Jews called the first month, because they say that the world was created in that month, and after they came from Egypt, they began at March: but because this opinion is uncertain, we always make March the first as the best writers do.
