The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire Bible2 Chronicles 1:5
Moreover, the brasen altar that Bezaleel the son of Uri, the
son of Hur, had made…
According to the pattern given by Moses, at
the direction of God, (Exodus 38:1) ,
he put before the tabernacle of the congregation;
either David, or
rather Solomon; though it seems best to read the words as in the
Septuagint and Vulgate Latin versions, "and there it was before the
tabernacle"; for it was always there:
and Solomon and the congregation sought unto it;
to sacrifice unto it;
or rather sought "unto him", the Lord, before whose tabernacle the
altar was, so Gussetins F1.
