The consecration of the court (2 Chr 7:7-7:7)

“King Solomon consecrated the middle of the court that was in front of the house of Yahweh. There he offered the burnt offerings and the fat of the well-being offerings, because the bronze altar King Solomon had made could not hold the burnt offerings, the grain offerings, and the fat parts.”

Once again, we are back almost word for word from 1 Kings, chapter 8. Solomon consecrated the court before the temple with all the burnt offerings.   Obviously the bronze sacrificial altar was not able to contain all these offerings.
