2 H8010 Then Solomon H559 spoke H3478 unto all Israel, H8269 to the captains H505 of thousands H3967 and of hundreds, H8199 and to the judges, H5387 and to every governor H3478 in all Israel, H7218 the chief H1 of the fathers.
3 H8010 So Solomon, H6951 and all the congregation H3212 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 had made H4057 in the wilderness.
4 H61 But H727 the ark H430 of God H1732 had David H5927 brought up H7157 from Kirjath–jearim H1732 to the place which David H3559 had prepared H5186 for it: for he had pitched H168 a tent H3389 for it at Jerusalem.
5 H5178 Moreover the bronze H4196 altar, H1212 that Bezaleel H1121 the son H221 of Uri, H1121 the son H2354 of Hur, H6213 had made, H7760 he put H6440 before H4908 the tabernacle H3068 of the Lord: H8010 and Solomon H6951 and the congregation H1875 sought unto it.
6 H8010 And Solomon H5927 went up H5178 there to the bronze H4196 altar H6440 before H3068 the Lord, H168 which was at the tabernacle H4150 of the congregation, H5927 and offered H505 a thousand H5930 burnt offerings upon it.
7 H3915 In that night H430 did God H7200 appear H8010 unto Solomon, H559 and said H7592 unto him, Ask H5414 what I shall give you.
8 H8010 And Solomon H559 said H430 unto God, H6213 You have showed H1419 great H2617 mercy H1732 unto David H1 my father, H4427 and have made me to reign in his stead.
9 H3068 Now, O Lord H430 God, H1697 let your promise H1732 unto David H1 my father H539 be established: H4427 for you have made me king H5971 over a people H6083 like the dust H776 of the earth H7227 in multitude.
10 H5414 Give H2451 me now wisdom H4093 and knowledge, H3318 that I may go out H935 and come in H6440 before H5971 this people: H8199 for who can judge H5971 this your people, H1419 that is so great?
11 H430 And God H559 said H8010 to Solomon, H3824 Because this was in your heart, H7592 and you have not asked H6239 riches, H5233 wealth, H3519 or honor, H5315 nor the life H8130 of your enemies, H7592 neither yet have asked H7227 long H3117 life; H7592 but have asked H2451 wisdom H4093 and knowledge H8199 for yourself, that you may judge H5971 my people, H4427 over whom I have made you king:
12 H2451 Wisdom H4093 and knowledge H5414 is granted H5414 unto you; and I will give H6239 you riches, H5233 and wealth, H3519 and honor, H4428 such as none of the kings H6440 have had that have been before H310 you, neither shall there any after you have the like.
13 H8010 Then Solomon H935 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 and reigned H3478 over Israel.
14 H8010 And Solomon H622 gathered H7393 chariots H6571 and horsemen: H505 and he had a thousand H702 and four H3967 hundred H7393 chariots, H8147 and twelve H505 thousand H6571 horsemen, H3240 which he placed H7393 in the chariot H5892 cities, H4428 and with the king H3389 at Jerusalem.
15 H4428 And the king H5414 made H3701 silver H2091 and gold H3389 at Jerusalem H68 as plentiful as stones, H730 and cedar trees H5414 made H8256 he as the sycamore trees H8219 that are in the valley 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 merchants H3947 received H4723 the linen yarn H4242 at a price.
17 H5927 And they fetched up, H3318 and brought forth H4714 out of Egypt H4818 a chariot H8337 for six H3967 hundred H3701 shekels of silver, H5483 and a horse H3967 for an hundred H2572 and fifty: H3318 and so brought they out H4428 horses for all the kings H2850 of the Hittites, H4428 and for the kings H758 of Syria, H3027 by their means.
