2 Chronicles 1
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And Solomon, the son of David, was strengthened in his kingdom, and LORD JEHOVAH his God was with him, and he exalted him higher than all the Kings of the Earth.

2And Solomon said to all Israel, to the Commanders of thousands and of hundreds and to the Judges and to all the Princes, the Chiefs of the fathers. 3And Solomon went on and all the people that were with him for a great banquet that was in the city Gebun, because there was the Tabernacle of Assembly of LORD JEHOVAH that Moshe the Servant of LORD JEHOVAH made in the wilderness, next to the Ark of LORD JEHOVAH. 4And David had brought it up from Qurith d’Kaphrunay where David had prepared a place for it, because he had pitched the Tabernacle in Jerusalem. 5And the altar of brass that Betsalieil, son of Uri, son of Khur, had made, was set before the Tabernacle of LORD JEHOVAH, and Solomon was seeking it, and all the congregation of Israel. 6And Solomon was offering up there on the altar of brass that was before LORD JEHOVAH that was in the Tent of Assembly, and he offered upon it one thousand sacrifices.

7That night LORD JEHOVAH was revealed to Solomon in a dream of the night, and LORD JEHOVAH said to him: “Request something, and I shall give it to you.”

8And Solomon said to LORD JEHOVAH: “You have performed with David my father great favor and you have established me in the kingdom after him. 9Also now, LORD JEHOVAH, my God, let come to pass therefore your words that you have spoken with David my father, because you have made me king over this people, and they have increased as the dust of the Earth. 10Also now, give me wisdom and knowledge, for I will be entering and going out at the front of this people, for who is able to judge this great people of yours?” 11And LORD JEHOVAH said to Solomon: “Because this was in your mind, and you have not requested for yourself riches and honor, nor the lives of your enemies, neither have you requested for yourself that you shall live many days, and you have asked for yourself wisdom and knowledge that you will judge my people, because I have made you king in the kingdom over it 12Also what you have not requested I give to you: wisdom and knowledge and wealth and goods and honor, that there was none your equal among all Kings who arose before you, and after you there shall not arise your equal.” 13And Solomon came for the great banquet that is in the city Gebun at the East of Jerusalem, from before the Tabernacle of Assembly, and he became king over all Israel.

14And Solomon gathered chariots and horsemen, and there were for him one thousand and four hundred chariots and twelve thousand horsemen, and he set the chariots in the towns, and some of them were with the King in Jerusalem. 15And the King gave silver in Jerusalem as stones, and a multitude of cedars he gave as the sand that is upon the shore of the sea. 16And the Merchants of the King were buying Solomon horses from Egypt and from the city of Aphelayites and from the city of Aphelayites with a price. 17And they were going up and were buying chariots from Egypt for six hundred pieces of silver and a horse for a hundred and fifty, and thus for all the Khethite Kings and for the Kings of Edom, and they brought them out by their hands.
