(18) Peace offerings.--While the "burnt offerings" were dedicatory, the peace offerings were eucharistic, and were also intended here, as in 1Kings 8:62-65, to supply the wants of the people by a religious feast of communion with God.

He blessed the people.--As Solomon did at the dedication of the temple (1Kings 8:14; 1Kings 8:55), and in both cases this was eminently fitting; but such blessing is by no means to be mistaken for the peculiar priestly blessing for which the form was prescribed in Numbers 6:22-26.

Verse 18. - David... blessed the people in the name of Jehovah of hosts. Blessing the people was an important priestly function, for which a special formula was provided (Numbers 6:22-26). But this did not deprive the king, who was Jehovah's anointed representative, of the right of also blessing them, and Solomon, at the consecration of the temple, followed his father's example in a very solemn manner (2 Chronicles 6:3).
