Only the people sacrificed in high places, because there was no house built unto the name of the LORD, until those days.
- the people
- It was not right to offer sacrifices in any place but where the tabernacle and ark were; and wherever they were, whether on a high place or a plain, sacrifices might be lawfully offered, previously to building of the temple. The tabernacle was now at Gibeon, (2 Ch 1:3, which was therefore called the great high place; whither we find Solomon, without censure, repaired to sacrifice.
