1 Kings 3:16-28

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}
