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 .
