1 H8010 And Solomon H1121 the son H1732 of David H2388 [H8691] was strengthened H4438 in his kingdom H3068 , and the LORD H430 his God H1431 [H8762] was with him, and magnified H4605 him exceedingly.
2 H8010 Then Solomon H559 [H8799] spoke H3478 to all Israel H8269 , to the captains H505 of thousands H3967 and of hundreds H8199 [H8802] , and to the judges H5387 , and to every governor H3478 in all Israel H7218 , the heads H1 of the father's houses.
3 H8010 So Solomon H6951 , and all the congregation H3212 [H8799] with him, went 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 [H8804] had made H4057 in the wilderness.
4 H61 But H727 the ark H430 of God H1732 David H5927 [H8689] had brought up H7157 from Kirjathjearim H1732 to the place which David H3559 [H8687] had prepared H5186 [H8804] for it: for he had pitched 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 [H8804] , had made H7760 [H8804] , he put H6440 before H4908 the tabernacle H3068 of the LORD H8010 : and Solomon H6951 and the congregation H1875 [H8799] sought for it.
6 H8010 And Solomon H5927 [H8686] went up H5178 there to the brasen H4196 altar H6440 before H3068 the LORD H168 , which was at the tabernacle H4150 of the congregation H5927 [H8686] , and offered H505 a thousand H5930 burnt offerings upon it.
7 H3915 In that night H430 God H7200 [H8738] appeared H8010 to Solomon H559 [H8799] , and said H7592 [H8798] to him, Ask H5414 [H8799] what I shall give thee.
8 H8010 And Solomon H559 [H8799] said H430 to God H6213 [H8804] , Thou hast shown H1419 great H2617 mercy H1732 to David H1 my father H4427 [H8689] , and hast made me to reign in his stead.
9 H3068 Now, O LORD H430 God H1697 , let thy promise H1732 to David H1 my father H539 [H8735] be established H4427 [H8689] : for thou hast made me king H5971 over a people H6083 like the dust H776 of the earth H7227 in multitude.
10 H5414 [H8798] Give H2451 me now wisdom H4093 and knowledge H3318 [H8799] , that I may go out H935 [H8799] and come in H6440 before H5971 this people H8199 [H8799] : for who can judge H1419 this thy great H5971 people?
11 H430 And God H559 [H8799] said H8010 to Solomon H3824 , Because this was in thy heart H7592 [H8804] , and thou hast not asked H6239 riches H5233 , wealth H3519 , or honour H5315 , nor the life H8130 [H8802] of thy enemies H7592 [H8804] , neither yet hast asked H7227 long H3117 life H7592 [H8799] ; but hast asked H2451 wisdom H4093 and knowledge H8199 [H8799] for thyself, that thou mayest judge H5971 my people H4427 [H8689] , over whom I have made thee king:
12 H2451 Wisdom H4093 and knowledge H5414 [H8803] are granted H5414 [H8799] to thee; and I will give 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 [H8799] came 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 [H8799] , and reigned H3478 over Israel.
14 H8010 And Solomon H622 [H8799] gathered H7393 chariots H6571 and horsemen H505 : and he had a thousand H702 and four H3967 hundred H7393 chariots H8147 H6240 , and twelve H505 thousand H6571 horsemen H3240 [H8686] , which he placed H7393 in the chariot H5892 cities H4428 , and with the king H3389 at Jerusalem.
15 H4428 And the king H5414 [H8799] made H3701 silver H2091 and gold H3389 at Jerusalem H68 as plenteous as stones H730 , and cedar trees H5414 [H8804] made H8256 he as the sycamore 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 [H8802] merchants H3947 [H8799] received H4723 the linen yarn H4242 at a price.
17 H5927 [H8799] And they fetched up H3318 [H8686] , and brought 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 [H8686] : and so they brought out H4428 horses for all the kings H2850 of the Hittites H4428 , and for the kings H758 of Syria H3027 , by their means.
