    Barnes' Notes on 2 Chronicles 1:2

    The narrative here corresponds with 1 Kings 3:4; but is very much fuller. We learn from the present passage:

    (1) that Solomon's sacrifice at Gibeon was a great public festivity, to which he collected vast numbers of the people;

    (2) that it was made upon the brass altar of Bezaleel, which

    (3) stood before the tabernacle; and

    (4) that Solomon's vision was on the night of his sacrifice. Consult the marginal references

    Wesley's Notes on 2 Chronicles 1:2

    1:2 Spake - Concerning his intention of going to Gibeon, and that they should attend him thither.
