1 H8010 Solomon H1121 the son H1732 of David H2388 was strengthened H4438 in his kingdom, H3068 and Yahweh H430 his God H1431 was with him, and magnified H4605 him exceedingly.
2 H8010 Solomon H559 spoke H3478 to all Israel, H8269 to the captains H505 of thousands H3967 and of hundreds, H8199 and to the judges, H7218 and to every prince H3478 in all Israel, H7218 the heads H1 of the fathers' households.
3 H8010 So Solomon, H6951 and all the assembly H3212 with him, went H1116 to the high place H1391 that was at Gibeon; H168 for there was the Tent H4150 of Meeting H430 of God, H4872 which Moses H5650 the servant H3068 of Yahweh H6213 had made H4057 in the wilderness.
4 H61 But H1732 David H727 had brought the ark H430 of God H5927 up H7157 from Kiriath Jearim H1732 to the place that David H3559 had prepared H5186 for it; for he had pitched H168 a tent H3389 for it at Jerusalem.
5 H5178 Moreover the bronze H4196 altar, H1212 that Bezalel H1121 the son H221 of Uri, H1121 the son H2354 of Hur, H6213 had made, H7760 was there H6440 before H4908 the tabernacle H3068 of Yahweh: H8010 and Solomon H6951 and the assembly H1875 were seeking counsel there.
6 H8010 Solomon H5927 went up H5178 there to the bronze H4196 altar H6440 before H3068 Yahweh, H168 which was at the Tent H4150 of Meeting, H5927 and offered H505 one thousand H5930 burnt offerings on it.
7 H3915 In that night H430 God H8010 appeared to Solomon, H559 and said H7592 to him, "Ask H5414 what I shall give you."
8 H8010 Solomon H559 said H430 to God, H6213 "You have shown H1419 great H2617 loving kindness H1732 to David H1 my father, H4427 and have made me king in his place.
9 H3068 Now, Yahweh H430 God, H1697 let your promise H1732 to David H1 my father H539 be established; H4427 for you have made me king H5971 over a people H6083 like the dust H776 of the earth H7227 in multitude.
10 H5414 Now give H2451 me wisdom H4093 and knowledge, H3318 that I may go out H935 and come in H6440 before H5971 this people; H8199 for who can judge H5971 this your people, H1419 that is so great?"
11 H430 God H559 said H8010 to Solomon, H3824 "Because this was in your heart, H7592 and you have not asked H6239 riches, H6239 wealth, H3519 or honor, H5315 nor the life H8130 of those who hate H7592 you, neither yet 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, H4427 over whom I have made you king:
12 H2451 wisdom H4093 and knowledge H5414 is granted H5414 to you. I will give H6239 you riches, H6239 wealth, H3519 and honor, H4428 such as none of the kings H6440 have had who have been before H310 you; neither shall there any after you have the like."
13 H8010 So Solomon H935 came H1116 from the high place H1391 that was at Gibeon, H6440 from before H168 the Tent H4150 of Meeting, H3389 to Jerusalem; H4427 and he reigned H3478 over Israel.
14 H8010 Solomon H622 gathered H7393 chariots H6571 and horsemen: H505 and he had one thousand H702 four H3967 hundred H7393 chariots, H8147 and twelve H505 thousand H6571 horsemen, H3240 that he placed H7393 in the chariot H5892 cities, H4428 and with the king H3389 at Jerusalem.
15 H4428 The king H5414 made H3701 silver H2091 and gold H3389 to be in Jerusalem H68 as stones, H730 and cedars H5414 made H8256 he to be as the sycamore trees H8219 that are in the lowland, H7230 for abundance.
16 H5483 The horses H8010 which Solomon H4161 had were brought H4714 out of Egypt H4723 and from Kue; H4428 the king's H5503 merchants H3947 purchased H4242 them H4723 from Kue.
17 H5927 They brought up H3318 and brought out H4714 of Egypt H4818 a chariot H8337 for six H3967 hundred H3701 pieces of silver, H5483 and a horse H3967 for one hundred H2572 fifty: H4428 and so for all the kings H2850 of the Hittites, H4428 and the kings H758 of Syria, H3318 they brought them out H3027 by their means.
