2 Chronicles 5:6

 

 

And King Solomon and all the congregation of Israel who were assembled with him before the ark, were sacrificing so many sheep and oxen that they could not be counted or numbered.

Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary

Observe, Reader! how sacrifices made a part in every service: without shedding of blood there is no remission. Nothing but the blood of Christ cleansed from sin.

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

(6) Assembled.—(Nô‘ad, to meet at an appointed time and place, Exodus 25:22). Not the same word as in 2 Chronicles 5:2-3 (qâhal), of which the root meaning is probably to call together.

Before the ark.—By the omission of a single Hebrew word [’ittô] before this phrase, the whole form of the sentence is altered from that of Kings. There we read “(were) with him before the Ark sacrificing,” &c.

Sacrificed.—Were sacrificing.

And the priests . . .—The verse is wholly identical with 1 Kings 8:6 (see Notes there).
