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 tent H4150 of meeting 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 tent H4150 of meeting, 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 tent H4150 of meeting, 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.
