“kneeled down with their faces to the ground on the pavement and worshiped.” The word for “worshiped” is to bow down, and in this context it means to bow down in worship. The kneeling (or bending over) and then bowing down were blended as a single act of worship, [see commentary on 1 Chron. 29:20. The Hebrew word for “kneel” here is different from the word in 1 Chron. 29:20, but they can both mean “kneel”].

“the middle of the court that was in front of the house.” This was the inner courtyard, the court of the priests (see commentary on 2 Chron. 4:9).

“the bronze altar that Solomon had made was not able to contain the burnt offerings and the grain offerings.” As large as Solomon’s altar was, it was not able to hold all the offerings that were made at this time, so they were burned in the middle of the courtyard, likely on some temporary structure that was made for that purpose.

“worship them.” Or, “bow down to them.” The Hebrew word translated “worship,” shachah (#07812 שָׁחָה), is the same Hebrew word as “bow down.” [For more on bowing down, see commentary on 1 Chron. 29:20].
