1 H8010 And Solomon H1121 the son H1732 of David H2388 was strengthened H4438 in his kingdom, H3068 and the LORD H430 his God H1431 was with him, and magnified H4605 him exceedingly.
2 H8010 Then Solomon H559 spoke H3605 to all H3478 Israel, H8269 to the captains H505 of thousands H3967 and of hundreds, H8199 and to the judges, H3605 and to every H5387 governor H3605 in all H3478 Israel, H7218 the chief H1 of the fathers.
3 H8010 So Solomon, H3605 and all H6951 the congregation H3212 with him, went H1116 to the high H1391 place that was at Gibeon; H8033 for there H168 was the tabernacle H4150 of the congregation H430 of God, H834 which H4872 Moses H5650 the servant H3068 of the LORD H1961 had H6213 made H4057 in the wilderness.
4 H727 But the ark H430 of God H1732 had David H5927 brought H7157 up from Kirjathjearim H1732 to the place which David H3559 had prepared H5186 for it: for he had pitched H168 a tent H3389 for it at Jerusalem.
5 H5178 Moreover the brazen H4196 altar, H1212 that Bezaleel H1121 the son H221 of Uri, H1121 the son H2354 of Hur, H6213 had made, H7760 he put H6440 before H4908 the tabernacle H3068 of the LORD: H8010 and Solomon H6951 and the congregation H1875 sought to it.
6 H8010 And Solomon H5927 went H8033 up thither H5178 to the brazen H4196 altar H6440 before H3068 the LORD, H168 which was at the tabernacle H4150 of the congregation, H5927 and offered H7239 a thousand H505 H5930 burnt offerings on it.
7 H3915 In that night H430 did God H7200 appear H8010 to Solomon, H559 and said H7592 to him, Ask H4100 what H5414 I shall give you.
8 H8010 And Solomon H559 said H430 to God, H6213 You have showed H1419 great H2617 mercy H1732 to David H25 my father, H4427 and have made me to reign H8478 in his stead.
9 H6258 Now, H3068 O LORD H430 God, H1697 let your promise H1732 to David H25 my father H539 be established: H4427 for you have made me king H5921 over H5971 a people H6083 like the dust H776 of the earth H7227 in multitude.
10 H5414 Give H6258 me now H2451 wisdom H4093 and knowledge, H3318 that I may go H935 out and come H6440 in before H2088 this H5971 people: H4310 for who H8199 can judge H2088 this H5971 your people, H1419 that is so great?
11 H430 And God H559 said H8010 to Solomon, H3282 Because H834 H2063 this H3824 was in your heart, H7592 and you have not asked H6239 riches, H5233 wealth, H3519 or honor, H5315 nor the life H8130 of your enemies, H3808 neither H1571 yet H7592 have asked H7227 long H3117 life; H7592 but have asked H2451 wisdom H4093 and knowledge H8199 for yourself, that you may judge H5971 my people, H5921 over H834 whom H5921 H4427 I have made you king:
12 H2451 Wisdom H4093 and knowledge H5414 is granted H5414 to you; and I will give H6239 you riches, H5233 and wealth, H3519 and honor, H834 such H3808 as none H4428 of the kings H1961 have had H6440 that have been before H3808 you, neither H310 shall there any after H1961 you have H3651 the like.
13 H8010 Then Solomon H935 came H1116 from his journey to the high H1391 place that was at Gibeon H3389 to Jerusalem, H6440 from before H168 the tabernacle H4150 of the congregation, H4427 and reigned H5921 over H3478 Israel.
14 H8010 And Solomon H622 gathered H7393 chariots H6571 and horsemen: H1961 and he had H7239 a thousand H505 H702 and four H3967 hundred H7393 chariots, H8147 and twelve H6240 H7239 thousand H505 H6571 horsemen, H3240 which he placed H7393 in the chariot H5892 cities, H4428 and with the king H3389 at Jerusalem.
15 H4428 And the king H5414 made H3701 silver H2091 and gold H3389 at Jerusalem H68 as plenteous as stones, H730 and cedar H5414 trees made H8256 he as the sycomore H8219 trees that are in the vale H7230 for abundance.
16 H8010 And Solomon H5483 had horses H4161 brought H4714 out of Egypt, H4723 and linen H4723 yarn: H4428 the king’s H5503 merchants H3947 received H4723 the linen H4723 yarn H4242 at a price.
17 H5927 And they fetched H3318 up, and brought H3318 forth H4714 out of Egypt H4818 a chariot H8337 for six H3967 hundred H3701 shekels of silver, H5483 and an horse H3967 for an hundred H2572 and fifty: H3318 and so brought H5483 they out horses H3605 for all H4428 the kings H2850 of the Hittites, H4428 and for the kings H758 of Syria, H3027 by their means.
