    Clarke's Commentary on 1 Kings 9:25

    Three times in a year did Solomon offer - These three times were:

    1. The passover.

    2. The feast of pentecost.

    3. The feast of tabernacles.

    Barnes' Notes on 1 Kings 9:25

    Three times - i. e., (see the marginal reference) the three solemn Feasts - the Feast of unleavened bread, the Feast of weeks, and the Feast of tabernacles.

    Did Solomon offer ... and he burnt incense - Not with his own hand, but by his priests 1 Kings 8:6; 2 Chronicles 5:7-14. In sacred, as in ordinary, history, men are said to do that which they cause to be done.

    Wesley's Notes on 1 Kings 9:25

    9:25 Three times - That is, at the three solemn feasts: and undoubtedly at all other appointed times.
