1 Kings 41 Thus was king Solomon king over all Israel. 2 And these were the princes whom he had: ‘Azaryahu the son of Zadok the priest; 3 Elichoreph and Achiyah, the sons of Shisha, scribes; Jehoshaphat the son of Achilud, the recorder; 4 And Benayahu the son of Yehoyada’ over the army; and Zadok and Ebyathar priests; 5 And Azaryahu the son of Nathan was over the superintendents; and Zabud the son of Nathan was an officer of state and the king’s friend; 6 And Achishar was over the household; and Adoniram the son of ‘Abda was over the tribute. 7 And Solomon had twelve superintendents over all Israel, who provided for the king and his household: one month in the year had the particular one to procure provisions. 8 And these are their names: Ben-chur on the mountain of Ephraim; 9 Ben-deker, in Makaz, and in Sha’albim, and Beth-shemesh, and Elon-beth-chanan; 10 Ben-chessed, in Arubboth; to him pertained Sochoh and all the land of Chepher; 11 Ben-abinadab, in all the district of Dor; he had Taphath the daughter of Solomon for wife; 12 Ba’ana the son of Achilud in Tha’anach and Megiddo, and all Beth-shean, which is by Zarethanah beneath Yizre’el, from Beth-shean to Abel-mecholah, as far as beyond Yokme’am; 13 Ben-geber, in Ramoth-gil’ad; to him pertained the villages of Ya’ir the son of Menasseh, which are in Gil’ad; to him also pertained the region of Argob, which is in Bashan, sixty great cities with walls and brazen bars; 14 Achinadab the son of ‘Iddo in Machanayim; 15 Achima’az in Naphtali; he also took Bahsemath the daughter of Solomon for wife; 16 Ba’anah the son of Chushai in Asher and in Be’aloth; 17 Jehoshaphat the son of Paruach, in Issachar; 18 Shim’i the son of Ela, in Benjamin; 19 Geber the son of Uri in the country of Gil’ad, the country of Sichon the king of the Emorites, and of ‘Og the king of Bashan; besides the one superintendent who was in the land. 20 Judah and Israel were numerous, as the sand which is by the sea in multitude; and they ate and drank, and made merry.
