And Solomon went up thither
To the high place at Gibeon:
to the brasen altar before the lord;
where he used to be, and accept the sacrifices of his people, though the ark, the symbol of his presence, was not there:
which was at the tabernacle of the congregation;
that is, which altar was there; or rather "who", that is, God, was there, as Osiander, hearing the prayers of his people, and accepting their offerings:
and offered a thousand offerings upon it;
by the priests, see ( 1 Kings 3:4 ) .
