2 Chronicles 7:7-9 New English Translation (NET Bible)
7 Solomon consecrated the middle of the courtyard that is in front of the Lord’s temple. He offered burnt sacrifices, grain offerings,[a] and the fat from the peace offerings there, because the bronze altar that Solomon had made was too small to hold all these offerings.[b] 8 At that time Solomon and all Israel with him celebrated a festival for seven days. This great assembly included people from Lebo Hamath in the north to the Stream of Egypt in the south.[c] 9 On the eighth day they held an assembly, for they had dedicated the altar for seven days and celebrated the festival for seven more days.
