1And [4grew in strength 1Solomon 2son 3of David] over his kingdom, and the  lord his God was with him, and magnified him in stature. 2And Solomon spoke to all Israel, to the commanders of thousands, and to the commanders of hundreds, and to the judges, and to all the rulers before all Israel, to the rulers of the families. 3And Solomon went out and all the assembly with him unto the high place in Gibeon, of which [6was located 1the 2tent 3of the 4testimony 5of God], which [4made 1Moses 2the servant 3of the  lord] in the wilderness. 4[3the 1But 4ark 5of God 2David brought] from out of the city of Kirjath Jearim, for [2prepared 3for it 1David]; for he pitched a tent for it in Jerusalem. 5And the altar of brass which [6made 1Bezaleel 2son 3of Uri 4son 5of Hur] was there before the tent of the  lord. And [5sought by 6it 1Solomon 2and 3the 4assembly]. 6And Solomon offered there upon the altar, the one of brass, the one before the  lord, the one in the tent of the testimony. And he offered upon it [2whole burnt-offerings 1a thousand]. 7In that night God appeared to Solomon, and he said to him, Ask what I shall give to you! 8And Solomon said to God, You performed with David my father [2act of kindness 1a great], and gave me reign instead of him. 9And now, O  lord God, let [2be trustworthy 1your word] with David my father! For you gave me reign over a people vast as the dust of the earth. 10Now [3wisdom 4and 5understanding 1give 2to me]! and I shall go forth before this people and enter in. For who shall judge [4people 2your 3great 1this]? 11And God said to Solomon, Because this happened in your heart, and you did not ask wealth of things, nor glory, nor the life of the ones detesting you, and you did not ask for [2days 1many]; but you asked for yourself wisdom and understanding, so as to judge my people, over whom I gave you to reign over it -- 12the wisdom and the understanding I give to you; and wealth, and possessions, and glory I shall give to you, as did not happen likened unto you among the kings before you, and [3after 4you 1it will not be 2thus]. 13And Solomon came from Bama, of the one in Gibeon, unto Jerusalem, from the face of the tent of the testimony; and he reigned over Israel. 14And Solomon brought together chariots and horsemen; and there were to him a thousand and four hundred chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen. And he left them in the cities of the chariots, and with the king in Jerusalem. 15And [3established 1the 2king] silver and gold in Jerusalem as the stones; and the cedars in Judea as sycamine trees, the ones in the plains in multitude. 16And there was an exodus of the horses to Solomon from Egypt, and [2by the 3value 4of the 5merchants 6of the 7king 8to go forth 1they were bought]. 17And they ascended and brought from out of Egypt [2chariot 1one] for six hundred pieces of silver, and a horse for fifty and a hundred. And thus to all the kings of the Hittites, and to the kings of Syria, [2by 3their hands 1they brought them forth].
