2 Chronicles 7:4-10 Names of God Bible (NOG)

Then the king and all the people offered sacrifices to Yahweh. King Solomon offered 22,000 cattle and 120,000 sheep as sacrifices to the Lord. So the king and all the people dedicated Elohim’s temple.

The priests were standing at their posts. So were the Levites who had Yahweh’s musical instruments which King David made for praising Yahweh with “his mercy endures forever” and which he used to offer praise. The priests were opposite the Levites blowing trumpets while all Israel was standing there.

Solomon designated the courtyard in front of Yahweh’s temple as a holy place. He sacrificed the burnt offerings, grain offerings, and the fat because the bronze altar that he had made and that was in front of the Lord was not able to hold all of them.

At that time Solomon and all Israel celebrated the Festival of Booths. A very large crowd had come from the territory between the border of Hamath and the River of Egypt. On the eighth day there was an assembly. They had observed the dedication of the altar for seven days and celebrated the festival for another seven days. 10 On the twenty-third day of the seventh month, Solomon dismissed the people to their tents. They rejoiced with cheerful hearts for all the blessings Yahweh had given David, Solomon, and his people Israel.
