1 H8010 And Solomon H1121 the son H1732 of David H2388 was strengthened [H8691] H4438 in his kingdom H3068 , and the LORD H430 his God H1431 was with him, and magnified [H8762] H4605 him exceedingly.
2 H8010 Then Solomon H559 spake [H8799] H3478 unto all Israel H8269 , to the captains H505 of thousands H3967 and of hundreds H8199 , and to the judges [H8802] H5387 , and to every governor H3478 in all Israel H7218 , the chief H1 of the fathers.
3 H8010 So Solomon H6951 , and all the congregation H3212 with him, went [H8799] H1116 to the high place H1391 that was at Gibeon H168 ; for there was the tabernacle H4150 of the congregation H430 of God H4872 , which Moses H5650 the servant H3068 of the LORD H6213 had made [H8804] H4057 in the wilderness.
4 H61 But H727 the ark H430 of God H1732 had David H5927 brought up [H8689] H7157 from Kirjathjearim H1732 to the place which David H3559 had prepared [H8687] H5186 for it: for he had pitched [H8804] H168 a tent H3389 for it at Jerusalem.
5 H5178 Moreover the brasen H4196 altar H1212 , that Bezaleel H1121 the son H221 of Uri H1121 , the son H2354 of Hur H6213 , had made [H8804] H7760 , he put [H8804] H6440 before H4908 the tabernacle H3068 of the LORD H8010 : and Solomon H6951 and the congregation H1875 sought [H8799] unto it.
6 H8010 And Solomon H5927 went up [H8686] H5178 thither to the brasen H4196 altar H6440 before H3068 the LORD H168 , which was at the tabernacle H4150 of the congregation H5927 , and offered [H8686] H505 a thousand H5930 burnt offerings upon it.
7 H3915 In that night H430 did God H7200 appear [H8738] H8010 unto Solomon H559 , and said [H8799] H7592 unto him, Ask [H8798] H5414 what I shall give [H8799] thee.
8 H8010 And Solomon H559 said [H8799] H430 unto God H6213 , Thou hast shewed [H8804] H1419 great H2617 mercy H1732 unto David H1 my father H4427 , and hast made me to reign [H8689] in his stead.
9 H3068 Now, O LORD H430 God H1697 , let thy promise H1732 unto David H1 my father H539 be established [H8735] H4427 : for thou hast made me king [H8689] H5971 over a people H6083 like the dust H776 of the earth H7227 in multitude.
10 H5414 Give [H8798] H2451 me now wisdom H4093 and knowledge H3318 , that I may go out [H8799] H935 and come in [H8799] H6440 before H5971 this people H8199 : for who can judge [H8799] H5971 this thy people H1419 , that is so great?
11 H430 And God H559 said [H8799] H8010 to Solomon H3824 , Because this was in thine heart H7592 , and thou hast not asked [H8804] H6239 riches H5233 , wealth H3519 , or honour H5315 , nor the life H8130 of thine enemies [H8802] H7592 , neither yet hast asked [H8804] H7227 long H3117 life H7592 ; but hast asked [H8799] H2451 wisdom H4093 and knowledge H8199 for thyself, that thou mayest judge [H8799] H5971 my people H4427 , over whom I have made thee king [H8689] :
12 H2451 Wisdom H4093 and knowledge H5414 is granted [H8803] H5414 unto thee; and I will give [H8799] H6239 thee riches H5233 , and wealth H3519 , and honour H4428 , such as none of the kings H6440 have had that have been before H310 thee, neither shall there any after thee have the like.
13 H8010 Then Solomon H935 came [H8799] H1116 from his journey to the high place H1391 that was at Gibeon H3389 to Jerusalem H6440 , from before H168 the tabernacle H4150 of the congregation H4427 , and reigned [H8799] H3478 over Israel.
14 H8010 And Solomon H622 gathered [H8799] H7393 chariots H6571 and horsemen H505 : and he had a thousand H702 and four H3967 hundred H7393 chariots H8147 , and twelve H6240 H505 thousand H6571 horsemen H3240 , which he placed [H8686] H7393 in the chariot H5892 cities H4428 , and with the king H3389 at Jerusalem.
15 H4428 And the king H5414 made [H8799] H3701 silver H2091 and gold H3389 at Jerusalem H68 as plenteous as stones H730 , and cedar trees H5414 made [H8804] H8256 he as the sycomore trees H8219 that are in the vale H7230 for abundance.
16 H8010 And Solomon H5483 had horses H4161 brought H4714 out of Egypt H4723 , and linen yarn H4428 : the king's H5503 merchants [H8802] H3947 received [H8799] H4723 the linen yarn H4242 at a price.
17 H5927 And they fetched up [H8799] H3318 , and brought forth [H8686] 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 they out [H8686] H4428 horses for all the kings H2850 of the Hittites H4428 , and for the kings H758 of Syria H3027 , by their means.
