Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Kings 3:4

_ _ the king went to Gibeon to sacrifice there — The old tabernacle and the brazen altar which Moses had made in the wilderness were there (1 Chronicles 16:39; 1 Chronicles 21:29; 2 Chronicles 1:3-6). The royal progress was of public importance. It was a season of national devotion. The king was accompanied by his principal nobility (2 Chronicles 1:2); and, as the occasion was most probably one of the great annual festivals which lasted seven days, the rank of the offerer and the succession of daily oblations may help in part to account for the immense magnitude of the sacrifices.
