1 Kings 12:31-32

Context

12:31 He built temples 1  on the high places and appointed as priests people who were not Levites. 12:32 Jeroboam inaugurated a festival on the fifteenth day of the eighth month, 2  like the festival celebrated in Judah. 3  On the altar in Bethel he offered sacrifices to the calves he had made. 4  In Bethel he also appointed priests for the high places he had made.

1 Kings 14:23

Context
14:23 They even built for themselves high places, sacred pillars, and Asherah poles on every high hill and under every green tree.

1 tn The Hebrew text has the singular, but the plural is preferable here (see 1 Kgs 13:32). The Old Greek translation and the Vulgate have the plural.

2 sn The eighth month would correspond to October-November in modern reckoning.

3 sn The festival he celebrated in Judah probably refers to the Feast of Tabernacles (i.e., Booths or Temporary Shelters), held in the seventh month (September-October). See also 1 Kgs 8:2.

4 tn Heb “and he offered up [sacrifices] on the altar; he did this in Bethel, sacrificing to the calves which he had made.”
