1 Kings 3

And Solomon
<08010>
made affinity
<02859> (8691)
with Pharaoh
<06547>
king
<04428>
of Egypt
<04714>_,
and took
<03947> (8799)
Pharaoh's
<06547>
daughter
<01323>_,
and brought
<0935> (8686)
her into the city
<05892>
of David
<01732>_,
until he had made an end
<03615> (8763)
of building
<01129> (8800)
his own house
<01004>_,
and the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and the wall
<02346>
of Jerusalem
<03389>
round about
<05439>_.
Only the people
<05971>
sacrificed
<02076> (8764)
in high places
<01116>_,
because there was no house
<01004>
built
<01129> (8738)
unto the name
<08034>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
until those days
<03117>_.
And Solomon
<08010>
loved
<0157> (8799)
the LORD
<03068>_,
walking
<03212> (8800)
in the statutes
<02708>
of David
<01732>
his father
<01>_:
only he sacrificed
<02076> (8764)
and burnt incense
<06999> (8688)
in high places
<01116>_.
And the king
<04428>
went
<03212> (8799)
to Gibeon
<01391>
to sacrifice
<02076> (8800)
there; for that
<01931>
[was] the great
<01419>
high place
<01116>_:
a thousand
<0505>
burnt offerings
<05930>
did Solomon
<08010>
offer
<05927> (8686)
upon that altar
<04196>_.
In Gibeon
<01391>
the LORD
<03068>
appeared
<07200> (8738)
to Solomon
<08010>
in a dream
<02472>
by night
<03915>_:
and God
<0430>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Ask
<07592> (8798)
what I shall give
<05414> (8799)
thee.
And Solomon
<08010>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Thou hast shewed
<06213> (8804)
unto thy servant
<05650>
David
<01732>
my father
<01>
great
<01419>
mercy
<02617>_,
according as he walked
<01980> (8804)
before
<06440>
thee in truth
<0571>_,
and in righteousness
<06666>_,
and in uprightness
<03483>
of heart
<03824>
with thee; and thou hast kept
<08104> (8799)
for him this great
<01419>
kindness
<02617>_,
that thou hast given
<05414> (8799)
him a son
<01121>
to sit
<03427> (8802)
on his throne
<03678>_,
as [it is] this day
<03117>_.
{mercy: or, bounty}
And now, O LORD
<03068>
my God
<0430>_,
thou hast made thy servant
<05650>
king
<04427> (8689)
instead of David
<01732>
my father
<01>_:
and I [am but] a little
<06996>
child
<05288>_:
I know
<03045> (8799)
not [how] to go out
<03318> (8800)
or come in
<0935> (8800)_.
And thy servant
<05650>
[is] in the midst
<08432>
of thy people
<05971>
which thou hast chosen
<0977> (8804)_,
a great
<07227>
people
<05971>_,
that cannot be numbered
<04487> (8735)
nor counted
<05608> (8735)
for multitude
<07230>_.
Give
<05414> (8804)
therefore thy servant
<05650>
an understanding
<08085> (8802)
heart
<03820>
to judge
<08199> (8800)
thy people
<05971>_,
that I may discern
<0995> (8687)
between good
<02896>
and bad
<07451>_:
for who is able
<03201> (8799)
to judge
<08199> (8800)
this thy so great
<03515>
a people
<05971>_?
{understanding: Heb. hearing}
And the speech
<01697>
pleased
<03190> (8799) <05869>
the Lord
<0136>_,
that Solomon
<08010>
had asked
<07592> (8804)
this thing
<01697>_.
And God
<0430>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Because thou hast asked
<07592> (8804)
this thing
<01697>_,
and hast not asked
<07592> (8804)
for thyself long
<07227>
life
<03117>_;
neither hast asked
<07592> (8804)
riches
<06239>
for thyself, nor hast asked
<07592> (8804)
the life
<05315>
of thine enemies
<0341> (8802)_;
but hast asked
<07592> (8804)
for thyself understanding
<0995> (8687)
to discern
<08085> (8800)
judgment
<04941>_;
{long life: Heb. many days} {discern: Heb. hear}
Behold, I have done
<06213> (8804)
according to thy words
<01697>_:
lo, I have given
<05414> (8804)
thee a wise
<02450>
and an understanding
<0995> (8737)
heart
<03820>_;
so that there was none like thee before
<06440>
thee, neither after
<0310>
thee shall any arise
<06965> (8799)
like unto thee.
And I have also given
<05414> (8804)
thee that which thou hast not asked
<07592> (8804)_,
both riches
<06239>_,
and honour
<03519>_:
so that there shall not be any
<0376>
among the kings
<04428>
like unto thee all thy days
<03117>_.
{shall...: or, hath not been}
And if thou wilt walk
<03212> (8799)
in my ways
<01870>_,
to keep
<08104> (8800)
my statutes
<02706>
and my commandments
<04687>_,
as thy father
<01>
David
<01732>
did walk
<01980> (8804)_,
then I will lengthen
<0748> (8689)
thy days
<03117>_.
And Solomon
<08010>
awoke
<03364> (8799)_;
and, behold, [it was] a dream
<02472>_.
And he came
<0935> (8799)
to Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and stood
<05975> (8799)
before
<06440>
the ark
<0727>
of the covenant
<01285>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and offered up
<05927> (8686)
burnt offerings
<05930>_,
and offered
<06213> (8799)
peace offerings
<08002>_,
and made
<06213> (8799)
a feast
<04960>
to all his servants
<05650>_.
Then came
<0935> (8799)
there two
<08147>
women
<0802>_,
[that were] harlots
<02181> (8802)_,
unto the king
<04428>_,
and stood
<05975> (8799)
before
<06440>
him.
And the one
<0259>
woman
<0802>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
O
<0994>
my lord
<0113>_,
I and this woman
<0802>
dwell
<03427> (8802)
in one
<0259>
house
<01004>_;
and I was delivered of a child
<03205> (8799)
with her in the house
<01004>_.
And it came to pass the third
<07992>
day
<03117>
after that I was delivered
<03205> (8800)_,
that this woman
<0802>
was delivered
<03205> (8799)
also: and we [were] together
<03162>_;
[there was] no stranger
<02114> (8801)
with us in the house
<01004>_,
save
<02108>
we two
<08147>
in the house
<01004>_.
And this woman's
<0802>
child
<01121>
died
<04191> (8799)
in the night
<03915>_;
because she overlaid
<07901> (8804)
it.
And she arose
<06965> (8799)
at midnight
<08432> <03915>_,
and took
<03947> (8799)
my son
<01121>
from beside
<0681>
me, while thine handmaid
<0519>
slept
<03463>_,
and laid
<07901> (8686)
it in her bosom
<02436>_,
and laid
<07901> (8689)
her dead
<04191> (8801)
child
<01121>
in my bosom
<02436>_.
And when I rose
<06965> (8799)
in the morning
<01242>
to give my child
<01121>
suck
<03243> (8687)_,
behold, it was dead
<04191> (8804)_:
but when I had considered
<0995> (8709)
it in the morning
<01242>_,
behold, it was not my son
<01121>_,
which I did bear
<03205> (8804)_.
And the other
<0312>
woman
<0802>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Nay; but the living
<02416>
[is] my son
<01121>_,
and the dead
<04191> (8801)
[is] thy son
<01121>_.
And this said
<0559> (8802)_,
No; but the dead
<04191> (8801)
[is] thy son
<01121>_,
and the living
<02416>
[is] my son
<01121>_.
Thus they spake
<01696> (8762)
before
<06440>
the king
<04428>_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
the king
<04428>_,
The one
<02063>
saith
<0559> (8802)_,
This [is] my son
<01121>
that liveth
<02416>_,
and thy son
<01121>
[is] the dead
<04191> (8801)_:
and the other
<02063>
saith
<0559> (8802)_,
Nay; but thy son
<01121>
[is] the dead
<04191> (8801)_,
and my son
<01121>
[is] the living
<02416>_.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Bring
<03947> (8798)
me a sword
<02719>_.
And they brought
<0935> (8686)
a sword
<02719>
before
<06440>
the king
<04428>_.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Divide
<01504> (8798)
the living
<02416>
child
<03206>
in two
<08147>_,
and give
<05414> (8798)
half
<02677>
to the one
<0259>_,
and half
<02677>
to the other
<0259>_.
Then spake
<0559> (8799)
the woman
<0802>
whose the living
<02416>
child
<01121>
[was] unto the king
<04428>_,
for her bowels
<07356>
yearned
<03648> (8738)
upon her son
<01121>_,
and she said
<0559> (8799)_,
O
<0994>
my lord
<0113>_,
give
<05414> (8798)
her the living
<02416>
child
<03205> (8803)_,
and in no wise
<04191> (8687)
slay
<04191> (8686)
it. But the other said
<0559> (8802)_,
Let it be neither mine nor thine, [but] divide
<01504> (8798)
[it]. {yearned: Heb. were hot}
Then the king
<04428>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Give
<05414> (8798)
her the living
<02416>
child
<03205> (8803)_,
and in no wise
<04191> (8687)
slay
<04191> (8686)
it: she [is] the mother
<0517>
thereof.
And all Israel
<03478>
heard
<08085> (8799)
of the judgment
<04941>
which the king
<04428>
had judged
<08199> (8804)_;
and they feared
<03372> (8799)
the king
<06440>_:
for they saw
<07200> (8804)
that the wisdom
<02451>
of God
<0430>
[was] in him
<07130>_,
to do
<06213> (8800)
judgment
<04941>_.
{in him: Heb. in the midst of him}
