1 Kings 12:32

Context
12:32 Jeroboam inaugurated a festival on the fifteenth day of the eighth month, 1  like the festival celebrated in Judah. 2  On the altar in Bethel he offered sacrifices to the calves he had made. 3  In Bethel he also appointed priests for the high places he had made.

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

2 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.

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