And he brought also the brasen altar which was before the
That which Solomon made, ( 2 Chronicles 4:1 ) , which stood in the court by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the Lord, ( Leviticus 1:5 ) from the forefront of the house; the frontispiece of the temple, which was at the eastern gate of it:
from between the altar and the house of the Lord
for it seems Urijah had placed the new altar behind the old one, more out of sight; the brasen altar standing between that and the eastern gate, or entrance into the temple; wherefore he removed the brasen altar, and put his new one in the room of it:
and put it;
that is, the brasen altar of Solomon:
on the north side of the altar;
of the new altar, at the right hand as they went into the temple; where it was as in a corner, in greater obscurity, and the new altar more in view as they came into the temple.
