2 Chronicles 7:1–9

Now awhen Solomon had made an end of praying, the bfire came down from heaven, and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and cthe glory of the Lord filled the house. dAnd the priests could not enter into the house of the Lord, because the glory of the Lord had filled the Lord’s house. And when all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the Lord upon the house, they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement, and worshipped, and praised the Lord, esaying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.

fThen the king and all the people offered sacrifices before the Lord. And king Solomon offered a sacrifice of twenty and two thousand oxen, and an hundred and twenty thousand sheep: so the king and all the people dedicated the house of God. And the priests waited on their goffices: hthe Levites also with instruments of musick of the Lord, which David the king had made ito praise the Lord, ebecause his mercy endureth for ever, when David praised by their ministry; and jthe priests sounded trumpets before them, and all Israel stood. Moreover Solomon hallowed the middle of the court that was before the house of the Lord: for there he offered burnt offerings, and the fat of the peace offerings, because the brasen altar which Solomon had made was not able to receive the burnt offerings, and the meat offerings, and the fat. Also at the same time Solomon kept the feast seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great congregation, from the entering in of Hamath unto kthe river of Egypt. And in the eighth day they made a solemn assembly: for lthey kept the dedication of the altar seven days, and the feast seven days.
