1:1 And Solomon the son of David was strengthened in his kingdom, and the
LORD his God was with him, and magnified him exceedingly.
1:2 Then Solomon spoke unto all Israel, to the captains of thousands and
of hundreds, and to the judges, and to every governor in all Israel, the chief
of the fathers.
1:3 So Solomon, and all the congregation with him, went to the high place
that was at Gibeon; for there was the tabernacle of the congregation of God,
which Moses the servant of the LORD had made in the wilderness.
1:4 But the ark of God had David brought up from Kirjathjearim to the place
which David had prepared for it: for he had pitched a tent for it at Jerusalem.
1:5 Moreover the brazen altar, that Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur,
had made, he put before the tabernacle of the LORD: and Solomon and the congregation
sought unto it.
1:6 And Solomon went up thither to the brazen altar before the LORD, which
was at the tabernacle of the congregation, and offered a thousand burnt offerings
1:7 In that night did God appear unto Solomon, and said unto him, Ask what
I shall give you.
1:8 And Solomon said unto God, You have showed great mercy unto David my
father, and have made me to reign in his position.
1:9 Now, O LORD God, let your promise unto David my father be established:
for you have made me king over a people like the dust of the earth in multitude.
1:10 Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before
this people: for who can judge this your people, that is so great?
1:11 And God said to Solomon, Because this was in yours heart, and you have
not asked riches, wealth, or honour, nor the life of yours enemies, neither
yet have asked long life; but have asked wisdom and knowledge for yourself,
that you may judge my people, over whom I have made you king:
1:12 Wisdom and knowledge is granted unto you; and I will give you riches,
and wealth, and honour, such as none of the kings have had that have been before
you, neither shall there any after you have the like.
1:13 Then Solomon came from his journey to the high place that was at Gibeon
to Jerusalem, from before the tabernacle of the congregation, and reigned over
1:14 And Solomon gathered chariots and horsemen: and he had a thousand and
four hundred chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen, which he placed in the
chariot cities, and with the king at Jerusalem.
1:15 And the king made silver and gold at Jerusalem as abundant as stones,
and cedar trees made he as the sycomore trees that are in the vale for abundance.
1:16 And Solomon had horses brought out of Egypt, and linen yarn: the king's
merchants received the linen yarn at a price.
1:17 And they fetched up, and brought forth out of Egypt a chariot for six
hundred shekels of silver, and an horse for an hundred and fifty: and so brought
they out horses for all the kings of the Hittites, and for the kings of Syria,
by their means.
