1 Kings 8:64-66 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

64 On the same day, the king consecrated the middle of the courtyard that was in front of the Lord’s temple because that was where he offered the burnt offering, the grain offering, and the fat of the fellowship offerings, since the bronze altar before the Lord was too small to accommodate the burnt offerings, the grain offerings, and the fat of the fellowship offerings.

65 Solomon and all Israel with him—a great assembly, from the entrance of Hamath[a] to the Brook of Egypt—observed the festival at that time in the presence of the Lord our God, seven days, and seven more days—fourteen days.[b] 66 On the fifteenth day[c] he sent the people away. So they blessed the king and went to their homes[d] rejoicing and with happy hearts for all the goodness that the Lord had done for his servant David and for his people Israel.
