2 Chronicles Chapter 1

1And Solomon the son of David gained strength over his kingdom, and the Lord his God was with him, and he exalted him highly. 2And Solomon spoke to the whole of Israel – to the commanders of a thousand and the commanders of a hundred, and to the judges and to every leading person in the whole of Israel – the paternal heads. 3And Solomon and the whole convocation with him went to the idolatrous raised site which was in Gibeon, for in that place was the tent of contact of God which Moses the servant of the Lord had made in the desert. 4But it was David who brought the ark of God up from Kirjath-jearim to where David had prepared for it, for he had pitched a tent for it in Jerusalem. 5And he put the copper altar, which Bezaleel the son of Uri the son of Hur had made, before the tabernacle of the Lord, and Solomon and the convocation consulted the Lord there. 6And Solomon made offerings there on the copper altar before the Lord, it being in front of the tent of contact, and he made a thousand burnt offerings on it. 7On that night God appeared to Solomon and said to him, “Ask what you want me to give you.” 8And Solomon said to God, “You acted with much kindness towards my father David, and you made me king in his place. 9Now, O Lord God, may your word in connection with my father David be upheld, for you have made me king over a people as numerous as the particles of dust of the earth. 10So now, give me wisdom and knowledge, so that I can conduct myself in the presence of this people, for who can judge this numerous people of yours?” 11Then God said to Solomon, “Since this was in your heart, and you did not ask for an abundance of riches and honour, or the life of those who hate you, and you did not ask for long life either, but you have asked for wisdom and knowledge with which you can judge my people, over whom I have made you king, 12the wisdom and knowledge are given to you, and I will give you wealth and riches and honour such as no kings have had before you, and will not have after you.” 13And Solomon went to the idolatrous raised site which was in Gibeon and back to Jerusalem, opposite the tent of contact. And he reigned over Israel. 14And Solomon assembled a chariot fleet and horsemen, and he had one thousand four hundred chariots and twelve thousand horsemen, and he stationed them in the chariot cities, whereas some were with the king in Jerusalem. 15And the king made silver and gold commonplace in Jerusalem like stones in their abundance, and he made cedars like the sycamores which are in the lowlands in abundance. 16And the origin of Solomon's horses was that they were from Egypt, and the company of the king's merchants obtained the company of animals at a price. 17And they brought up and exported from Egypt a chariot for six hundred shekels of silver, and a horse for one hundred and fifty, and so they dispatched them through their agency to all the kings of the Hittites and to the kings of Aramaea.
