2 Chronicles 1 ©
The solemn offering of Solomon at Gibeon. God appeareth unto him there by night, and leaveth to his choice what blessing to ask: he asketh wisdom, to which God addeth riches and honour. Solomon's forces and opulence.
So Solomon, and all the congregation with him, went to the high place that was at fGibeon; for there was the tabernacle gof the congregation of God, which Moses the servant of the LORD hhad made in the wilderness.
And God said to Solomon, Because this twas in thine heart, and thou hast not asked riches, wealth, or honour, nor the life of thine 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:
Wisdom and knowledge is ugranted unto thee; and I will give thee riches, and wealth, and honour, such as vnone of the kings have had that have been before thee, neither shall there any after thee have the like.
And 4Solomon bhad horses brought out of Egypt, and linen yarn: the king's merchants received the linen yarn at a price.
And they fetched up, and brought forth out of Egypt a chariot for six hundred shekels of silver, and an horse for an hundred and fifty: and so brought they out horses for all the kings of the Hittites, and for the kings of Syria, by their 5means.
