1 Kings 3:5-15

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>_.
