2Ch 5:1. THE DEDICATED TREASURES.
1. Solomon brought in all the things that David his father had dedicated--the immense sums and the store of valuable articles which his father and other generals had reserved and appropriated for the temple (1Ch 22:14; 26:26).
2Ch 5:2-13. BRINGING UP OF THE ARK OF THE COVENANT.
2, 3. Then Solomon assembled . . . in the feast which was in the seventh month--The feast of the dedication of the temple was on the eighth day of that month. This is related, word for word, the same as in 1Ki 8:1-10.
11. all the priests that were present . . . did not then wait by course--The rotation system of weekly service introduced by David was intended for the ordinary duties of the priesthood; on extraordinary occasions, or when more than wonted solemnity attached to them, the priests attended in a body.
12. the Levites which were the singers--On great and solemn occasions,
such as this, a full choir was required, and their station was taken
with scrupulous regard to their official parts: the family of Heman
occupied the central place, the family of Asaph stood on his right, and
that of Jeduthun on his left; the place allotted to the vocal
department was a space between the court of Israel and the altar in the
east end of the priests' court.
13. the house was filled with a cloud--(See on 1Ki 8:10).
