Second Chronicles 1

1:1 And Solomon the son of David was strengthened in his
 kingdom, and the LORD his God [was] with him, and magnified him
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.
1:5 Moreover the brazen altar, that Bezaleel the son of Uri, the
 son of Hur, had made, he put before the tabernacle of the LORD:
 and Solomon and the congregation sought to it.
1:6 And Solomon went up thither to the brazen altar before the
 LORD, which [was] at the tabernacle of the congregation, and
 offered a thousand burnt-offerings upon it.
1:7 In that night God appeared to Solomon, and said to him, Ask
 what I shall give thee.
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.
1:9 Now, O LORD God, let thy promise to David my father be
 established: for thou hast made me king over a people like the
 dust of the earth in multitude.
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
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.
1:13 Then Solomon came [from his journey] to the high place that
 [was] at Gibeon to Jerusalem, from before the tabernacle of the
 congregation, and reigned over Israel.
1:14 And Solomon gathered chariots and horsemen: and he had a
 thousand and four hundred chariots, and twelve thousand
 horsemen, which he placed in the chariot cities, and with the
 king at Jerusalem.
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.
