EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)
(27) And the time (Heb., the days).

That he reigned.—This verse is a duplicate of 1Kings 2:11, omitting the words “David” at the beginning and years” at the end.

Seven years.—More exactly, seven and a-half. (See 2Samuel 5:5.)

This great assembly joined with David in adoring God. Whoever is the mouth of the congregation, those only have the benefit who join him, not by bowing down the head, so much as by lifting up the soul. Solomon sat on the throne of the Lord. Solomon's kingdom typified the kingdom of the Messiah, whose throne is the throne of the Lord.The throne of David is called here "the throne of the Lord," as in 1 Chronicles 28:5 it is called "the throne of the kingdom of the Lord," because God had set it up and had promised to establish it. 1Ch 29:26-30. His Reign and Death.

26. Thus David … reigned—(See 1Ki 2:11).

EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)
27. forty years] Cp. 2 Samuel 5:4-5; 1 Kings 2:11.Verse 27. - In the same way the contents of this verse are paralleled by 1 Chronicles 3:4; 2 Samuel 5:5; 1 Kings 2:11; this last passage giving only seven years instead of the seven years and six months for the reign in Hebron. To seal their confession, thus made in word and deed, the assembled dignitaries prepared a great sacrificial feast to the Lord on the following day. They sacrificed to the Lord sacrifices, viz., 1000 bullocks, 1000 rams, and 1000 lambs as burnt-offering, with drink-offerings to correspond, and sacrifices, i.e., thank-offerings (שׁלמים), in multitude for all Israel, i.e., so that all those present could take part in the sacrificial meal prepared from these sacrifices. While זבהים in the first clause is the general designation of the bloody offerings as distinguished from the meat-offerings, in the last clause it is restricted by the contrast with עלות and the שׁלמים, from which joyous sacrificial meals were prepared.
