1:2 Then Solomon spoke to all Israel, to the captains of thousands and of hundreds, and to the judges, and to every governor in all Israel, the chief of the fathers.
1:3 So Solomon, and all the congregation with him, went to the high place that [was] at Gibeon: for there was the tabernacle of the congregation of God, which Moses the servant of the LORD had made in the wilderness.
1:4 But the ark of God David had brought up from Kirjath-jearim to [the place which] David had prepared for it: for he had pitched a tent for it at Jerusalem.

1:8 And Solomon said to God, Thou hast shown great mercy to David my father, and hast made me to reign in his stead.
1:10 Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people: for who can judge this thy great people?
1:11 And God said to Solomon, Because this was in thy heart, and thou hast not asked riches, wealth, or honor, nor the life of thy enemies, neither yet hast asked long life; but hast asked wisdom and knowledge for thyself, that thou mayest judge my people, over whom I have made thee king:
1:12 Wisdom and knowledge [are] granted to thee; and I will give thee riches, and wealth, and honor, such as none of the kings have had that [have been] before thee, neither shall there any after thee have the like.

1:15 And the king made silver and gold at Jerusalem [as plenteous] as stones, and cedar trees made he as the sycamore trees that [are] in the vale for abundance.
1:16 And Solomon had horses brought out of Egypt, and linen yarn: the king's merchants received the linen yarn at a price.
1:17 And they fetched up, and brought out of Egypt a chariot for six hundred [shekels] of silver, and a horse for a hundred and fifty: and so they brought out [horses] for all the kings of the Hittites, and for the kings of Syria, by their means.
