And the king and all Israel sacrificed before the Lord. Solomon offered 22,000 cattle and 120,000 sheep. So he dedicated the house of the Lord. Then he consecrated the middle of the court with burnt offerings and peace offerings, and the fat of the peace offerings. All Israel, from the border of Hamath to the river of Egypt, celebrated a festival two times a day, for seven days. On the eighth day they went home with joy and gladness.
