“It was also made clear
That being possessed of wisdom,
Solomon offered sacrifice for the dedication
And completion of the temple.
Just as Moses prayed to the Lord,
Fire came down from heaven
And devoured the sacrifices.
So also Solomon prayed,
And the fire came down
The fire consumed the whole burnt offerings.
‘They were consumed
Because the sin offering had not been eaten.’
Likewise Solomon also kept the eight days.”
There is no question that the wise King Solomon offered a great sacrifice for the dedication and completion of the Temple in 1 Kings, chapters 5-9. When Moses prayed, the Lord sent fire from heaven to devour the sacrifices as in Leviticus, chapter 10. The same thing happened to King Solomon who also had an 8 day celebration.
