And SolomonH8010 made affinityH2859 with PharaohH6547 kingH4428 of Egypt,H4714 and tookH3947 Pharaoh'sH6547 daughter,H1323 and broughtH935 her intoH413 the cityH5892 of David,H1732 untilH5704 he had made an endH3615 of buildingH1129 his own house,H1004 and the houseH1004 of the LORD,H3068 and the wallH2346 of JerusalemH3389 roundH5439 about.
OnlyH7535 the peopleH5971 sacrificedH2076 in highH1116 places, becauseH3588 there was noH3808 houseH1004 builtH1129 to the nameH8034 of the LORD,H3068 untilH5704 thoseH1992 days.H3117
And SolomonH8010 lovedH157 the LORD,H3068 walkingH3212 in the statutesH2708 of DavidH1732 his father:H1 onlyH7535 he sacrificedH2076 and burntH6999 incenseH6999 in highH1116 places.
And the kingH4428 wentH3212 to GibeonH1391 to sacrificeH2076 there;H8033 for that was the greatH1419 highH1116 place: a thousandH505 burntH5930 offerings did SolomonH8010 offerH5927 on that altar.H4196
In GibeonH1391 the LORDH3068 appearedH7200 to SolomonH8010 in a dreamH2472 by night:H3915 and GodH430 said,H559 AskH7592 whatH4100 I shall giveH5414 you.
And SolomonH8010 said,H559 You have showedH6213 to your servantH5650 DavidH1732 my fatherH1 greatH1419 mercy,H2617 according as he walkedH1980 beforeH6440 you in truth,H571 and in righteousness,H6666 and in uprightnessH3483 of heartH3824 with you; and you have keptH8104 for him thisH2088 greatH1419 kindness,H2617 that you have givenH5414 him a sonH1121 to sitH3427 onH5921 his throne,H3678 as it is thisH2088 day.H3117
And now,H6258 O LORDH3068 my God,H430 you have made your servantH5650 kingH4427 insteadH8478 of DavidH1732 my father:H1 and I am but a littleH6996 child:H5288 I knowH3045 not how to goH3318 out or comeH935 in.
And your servantH5650 is in the middleH8432 of your peopleH5971 whichH834 you have chosen,H977 a greatH7227 people,H5971 that cannotH3808 be numberedH4487 nor countedH5608 for multitude.H7230
GiveH5414 therefore your servantH5650 an understandingH8085 heartH3820 to judgeH8199 your people,H5971 that I may discernH995 betweenH996 goodH2896 and bad:H7451 for whoH4310 is ableH3201 to judgeH8199 thisH2088 your so greatH3515 a people?H5971
And the speechH1697 pleasedH3190 H5869 the LORD,H136 that SolomonH8010 had askedH7592 thisH2088 thing.H1697
And GodH430 saidH559 to him, BecauseH3282 you have askedH7592 thisH2088 thing,H1697 and have not askedH7592 for yourself longH7227 life;H3117 neitherH3808 have askedH7592 richesH6239 for yourself, norH3808 have askedH7592 the lifeH5315 of your enemies;H341 but have askedH7592 for yourself understandingH995 to discernH8085 judgment;H4941
Behold,H2009 I have doneH6213 according to your words:H1697 see,H2009 I have givenH5414 you a wiseH2450 and an understandingH995 heart;H3820 so that there was noneH3808 likeH3644 you beforeH6440 you, neitherH3808 afterH310 you shall any ariseH6965 likeH3644 to you.
And I have alsoH1571 givenH5414 you that whichH834 you have not asked,H7592 bothH1571 riches,H6239 and honor:H3519 so that there shall not be anyH376 among the kingsH4428 likeH3644 to you allH3605 your days.H3117
And ifH518 you will walkH3212 in my ways,H1870 to keepH8104 my statutesH2706 and my commandments,H4687 as your fatherH1 DavidH1732 did walk,H1980 then I will lengthenH748 your days.H3117
And SolomonH8010 awoke;H3364 and, behold,H2009 it was a dream.H2472 And he cameH935 to Jerusalem,H3389 and stoodH5975 beforeH6440 the arkH727 of the covenantH1285 of the LORD,H3068 and offeredH5927 up burntH5930 offerings, and offeredH6213 peaceH8002 offerings, and madeH6213 a feastH4960 to allH3605 his servants.H5650
ThenH227 cameH935 there twoH8147 women,H802 that were harlots,H2181 to the king,H4428 and stoodH5975 beforeH6440 him.
And the oneH259 womanH802 said,H559 O my lord,H113 I and thisH2063 womanH802 dwellH3427 in oneH259 house;H1004 and I was deliveredH3205 of a childH3205 with her in the house.H1004
And it cameH1961 to pass the thirdH7992 dayH3117 after that I was delivered,H3205 that thisH2063 womanH802 was deliveredH3205 also:H1571 and we were together;H3162 there was noH369 strangerH2114 with us in the house,H1004 saveH2108 we twoH8147 in the house.H1004
And thisH2063 woman'sH802 childH1121 diedH4191 in the night;H3915 becauseH834 she overlaidH7901 it.
And she aroseH6965 at midnight,H8432 H3915 and tookH3947 my sonH1121 from besideH681 me, while your handmaidH519 slept,H3463 and laidH7901 it in her bosom,H2436 and laidH7901 her deadH4191 childH1121 in my bosom.H2436
And when I roseH6965 in the morningH1242 to give my childH1121 suck,H3243 behold,H2009 it was dead:H4191 but when I had consideredH995 it in the morning,H1242 behold,H2009 it was not my son,H1121 whichH834 I did bear.H3205
And the otherH312 womanH802 said,H559 No;H3808 but the livingH2416 is my son,H1121 and the deadH4191 is your son.H1121 And thisH2063 said,H559 No;H3808 but the deadH4191 is your son,H1121 and the livingH2416 is my son.H1121 Thus they spokeH1696 beforeH6440 the king.H4428
Then saidH559 the king,H4428 The oneH2063 said,H559 ThisH2063 is my sonH1121 that lives,H2416 and your sonH1121 is the dead:H4191 and the otherH2063 said,H559 No;H3808 but your sonH1121 is the dead,H4191 and my sonH1121 is the living.H2416
And the kingH4428 said,H559 BringH3947 me a sword.H2719 And they broughtH935 a swordH2719 beforeH6440 the king.H4428
And the kingH4428 said,H559 DivideH1504 the livingH2416 childH3206 in two,H8147 and giveH5414 halfH2677 to the one,H259 and halfH2677 to the other.H259
Then spokeH559 the womanH802 whoseH834 the livingH2416 childH1121 was to the king,H4428 for her bowelsH7356 yearnedH3648 on her son,H1121 and she said,H559 O my lord,H113 giveH5414 her the livingH2416 child,H3205 and in noH408 wiseH2450 slayH4191 it. But the otherH2063 said,H559 Let it be neitherH1571 H3808 my nor yours, but divideH1504 it.
Then the kingH4428 answeredH6030 and said,H559 GiveH5414 her the livingH2416 child,H3205 and in noH3808 wiseH2450 slayH4191 it: she is the motherH517 thereof.
And allH3605 IsraelH3478 heardH8085 of the judgmentH4941 whichH834 the kingH4428 had judged;H8199 and they fearedH3372 the king:H4428 for they sawH7200 that the wisdomH2451 of GodH430 was in him, to doH6213 judgment.H4941
