2 Chronicles 30:26 Meaning and Commentary

2 Chronicles 30:26

So there was great joy in Jerusalem
Not merely carnal, expressed in eating and drinking, and making merry with one another, but spiritual, on account of the restoration of temple service, and the feasts of the Lord:

for since the time of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel, there
was not the like in Jerusalem;
not the like joy, so spiritual, sincere, and hearty; nor such a number of persons rejoicing together on such an occasion; nor for so many days together, which were as many as at the dedication of the temple by Solomon.
