“And at that time Solomon held a feast, and all Israel with him, a great congregation, from the entering in of Hamath unto the river of Egypt, before the LORD our God, seven days and seven days, even fourteen days.”
King James Version (KJV)
8:65 Seven - Seven for the dedication of the temple, or altar; and theother seven for the feast of tabernacles. And it seems to be expressed inthis manner, to intimate, that these fourteen days of rejoicing, were notaltogether, but that there was some interval between them, which indeed wasnecessary, because the day of atonement was on the tenth day of this month,#Lev 23:27|. And because these fourteen days ended on the twenty - secondday, #2Chron 7:10|, it may seem most probable, that the feast of thededication was kept before the tenth day: and the feast of tabernacles somedays after it.
