8Solomon answered God, "You have shown great kindness to David my father and have made me king in his place.8And Solomon said to God, “You have shown great and steadfast love to David my father, and have made me king in his place.8Solomon said to God, "You have dealt with my father David with great lovingkindness, and have made me king in his place.8And Solomon said unto God, Thou hast shewed great mercy unto David my father, and hast made me to reign in his stead.8And Solomon said to God: "You have shown great and faithful love to my father David, and You have made me king in his place.
9Now, LORD God, let your promise to my father David be confirmed, for you have made me king over a people who are as numerous as the dust of the earth.9O LORD God, let your word to David my father be now fulfilled, for you have made me king over a people as numerous as the dust of the earth.9"Now, O LORD God, Your promise to my father David is fulfilled, for You have made me king over a people as numerous as the dust of the earth.9Now, O LORD God, let thy promise unto David my father be established: for thou hast made me king over a people like the dust of the earth in multitude.9 LORD God, let Your promise to my father David now come true. For You have made me king over a people as numerous as the dust of the earth.
10Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?"10Give me now wisdom and knowledge to go out and come in before this people, for who can govern this people of yours, which is so great?”10"Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people, for who can rule this great people of Yours?"10Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people: for who can judge this thy people, that is so great?10Now grant me wisdom and knowledge so that I may lead these people, for who can judge this great people of Yours?"

11God said to Solomon, "Since this is your heart's desire and you have not asked for wealth, possessions or honor, nor for the death of your enemies, and since you have not asked for a long life but for wisdom and knowledge to govern my people over whom I have made you king,11God answered Solomon, “Because this was in your heart, and you have not asked for possessions, wealth, honor, or the life of those who hate you, and have not even asked for long life, but have asked for wisdom and knowledge for yourself that you may govern my people over whom I have made you king,11God said to Solomon, "Because you had this in mind, and did not ask for riches, wealth or honor, or the life of those who hate you, nor have you even asked for long life, but you have asked for yourself wisdom and knowledge that you may rule My people over whom I have made you king,11And God said to Solomon, Because this was 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:11God said to Solomon, "Since this was in your heart, and you have not requested riches, wealth, or glory, or for the life of those who hate you, and you have not even requested long life, but you have requested for yourself wisdom and knowledge that you may judge My people over whom I have made you king,
12therefore wisdom and knowledge will be given you. And I will also give you wealth, possessions and honor, such as no king who was before you ever had and none after you will have."12wisdom and knowledge are granted to you. I will also give you riches, possessions, and honor, such as none of the kings had who were before you, and none after you shall have the like.”12wisdom and knowledge have been granted to you. And I will give you riches and wealth and honor, such as none of the kings who were before you has possessed nor those who will come after you."12Wisdom and knowledge is granted unto thee; and I will give thee riches, and wealth, and honour, such as none of the kings have had that have been before thee, neither shall there any after thee have the like.12wisdom and knowledge are given to you. I will also give you riches, wealth, and glory, unlike what was given to the kings who were before you, or will be given to those after you."
