(6) Assembled.--(N?'ad, to meet at an appointed time and place, Exodus 25:22). Not the same word as in 2Chronicles 5:2-3 (q?hal), of which the root meaning is probably to call together.

Before the ark.--By the omission of a single Hebrew word ['itto] before this phrase, the whole form of the sentence is altered from that of Kings. There we read "(were) with him before the Ark sacrificing," &c.

Sacrificed.--Were sacrificing.

And the priests . . .--The verse is wholly identical with 1Kings 8:6 (see Notes there).

Verse 6. - King Solomon and all the congregation... sacrificed; i.e., of course, with the intervention of their priests. 5:1-10 The ark was a type of Christ, and, as such, a token of the presence of God. That gracious promise, Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world, does, in effect, bring the ark into our religious assemblies, if we by faith and prayer plead that promise; and this we should be most earnest for. When Christ is formed in a soul, the law written in the heart, the ark of the covenant settled there, so that it becomes the temple of the Holy Ghost, there is true satisfaction in that soul.
