What does 2 Chronicles 1:5 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Chronicles 1:5

Moreover, the brasen altar that Bezaleel the son of Uri, the
son of Hur, had made
According to the pattern given by Moses, at the direction of God, ( Exodus 38:1 ) ,

he put before the tabernacle of the congregation;
either David, or rather Solomon; though it seems best to read the words as in the Septuagint and Vulgate Latin versions, "and there it was before the tabernacle"; for it was always there:

and Solomon and the congregation sought unto it;
to sacrifice unto it; or rather sought "unto him", the Lord, before whose tabernacle the altar was, so Gussetins F1.
