3:1 And Solomon [H8010] made affinity [H2859] with Pharaoh [H6547] king [H4428] of Egypt [H4714] , and took [H3947] Pharaoh's [H6547] daughter [H1323] , and brought [H935] her into the city [H5892] of David [H1732] , until he had made an end [H3615] of building [H1129] his own house [H1004] , and the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] , and the wall [H2346] of Jerusalem [H3389] round about [H5439] .

3:2 Only the people [H5971] sacrificed [H2076] in high places [H1116] , because there was no house [H1004] built [H1129] unto the name [H8034] of the LORD [H3068] , until those days [H3117] .

3:3 And Solomon [H8010] loved [H157] the LORD [H3068] , walking [H3212] in the statutes [H2708] of David [H1732] his father [H1] : only he sacrificed [H2076] and burnt incense [H6999] in high places [H1116] .

3:4 And the king [H4428] went [H3212] to Gibeon [H1391] to sacrifice [H2076] there; for that [H1931] [was] the great [H1419] high place [H1116] : a thousand [H505] burnt offerings [H5930] did Solomon [H8010] offer [H5927] upon that altar [H4196] .

3:5 In Gibeon [H1391] the LORD [H3068] appeared [H7200] to Solomon [H8010] in a dream [H2472] by night [H3915] : and God [H430] said [H559] , Ask [H7592] what I shall give [H5414] thee.

3:6 And Solomon [H8010] said [H559] , Thou hast shewed [H6213] unto thy servant [H5650] David [H1732] my father [H1] great [H1419] mercy [H2617] , according as he walked [H1980] before [H6440] thee in truth [H571] , and in righteousness [H6666] , and in uprightness [H3483] of heart [H3824] with thee; and thou hast kept [H8104] for him this great [H1419] kindness [H2617] , that thou hast given [H5414] him a son [H1121] to sit [H3427] on his throne [H3678] , as [it is] this day [H3117] .(mercy: or, bounty)

3:7 And now, O LORD [H3068] my God [H430] , thou hast made thy servant [H5650] king [H4427] instead of David [H1732] my father [H1] : and I [am but] a little [H6996] child [H5288] : I know [H3045] not [how] to go out [H3318] or come in [H935] .

3:8 And thy servant [H5650] [is] in the midst [H8432] of thy people [H5971] which thou hast chosen [H977] , a great [H7227] people [H5971] , that cannot be numbered [H4487] nor counted [H5608] for multitude [H7230] .

3:9 Give [H5414] therefore thy servant [H5650] an understanding [H8085] heart [H3820] to judge [H8199] thy people [H5971] , that I may discern [H995] between good [H2896] and bad [H7451] : for who is able [H3201] to judge [H8199] this thy so great [H3515] a people [H5971] ?(understanding: Heb. hearing)

3:10 And the speech [H1697] pleased [H3190] [H5869] the Lord [H136] , that Solomon [H8010] had asked [H7592] this thing [H1697] .

3:11 And God [H430] said [H559] unto him, Because thou hast asked [H7592] this thing [H1697] , and hast not asked [H7592] for thyself long [H7227] life [H3117] ; neither hast asked [H7592] riches [H6239] for thyself, nor hast asked [H7592] the life [H5315] of thine enemies [H341] ; but hast asked [H7592] for thyself understanding [H995] to discern [H8085] judgment [H4941] ;(long life: Heb. many days)(discern: Heb. hear)

3:12 Behold, I have done [H6213] according to thy words [H1697] : lo, I have given [H5414] thee a wise [H2450] and an understanding [H995] heart [H3820] ; so that there was none like thee before [H6440] thee, neither after [H310] thee shall any arise [H6965] like unto thee.

3:13 And I have also given [H5414] thee that which thou hast not asked [H7592] , both riches [H6239] , and honour [H3519] : so that there shall not be any [H376] among the kings [H4428] like unto thee all thy days [H3117] .(shall: or, hath not been)

3:14 And if thou wilt walk [H3212] in my ways [H1870] , to keep [H8104] my statutes [H2706] and my commandments [H4687] , as thy father [H1] David [H1732] did walk [H1980] , then I will lengthen [H748] thy days [H3117] .

3:15 And Solomon [H8010] awoke [H3364] ; and, behold, [it was] a dream [H2472] . And he came [H935] to Jerusalem [H3389] , and stood [H5975] before [H6440] the ark [H727] of the covenant [H1285] of the LORD [H3068] , and offered up [H5927] burnt offerings [H5930] , and offered [H6213] peace offerings [H8002] , and made [H6213] a feast [H4960] to all his servants [H5650] .

3:16 Then came [H935] there two [H8147] women [H802] , [that were] harlots [H2181] , unto the king [H4428] , and stood [H5975] before [H6440] him.

3:17 And the one [H259] woman [H802] said [H559] , O [H994] my lord [H113] , I and this woman [H802] dwell [H3427] in one [H259] house [H1004] ; and I was delivered of a child [H3205] with her in the house [H1004] .

3:18 And it came to pass the third [H7992] day [H3117] after that I was delivered [H3205] , that this woman [H802] was delivered [H3205] also: and we [were] together [H3162] ; [there was] no stranger [H2114] with us in the house [H1004] , save [H2108] we two [H8147] in the house [H1004] .

3:19 And this woman's [H802] child [H1121] died [H4191] in the night [H3915] ; because she overlaid [H7901] it.

3:20 And she arose [H6965] at midnight [H8432] [H3915] , and took [H3947] my son [H1121] from beside [H681] me, while thine handmaid [H519] slept [H3463] , and laid [H7901] it in her bosom [H2436] , and laid [H7901] her dead [H4191] child [H1121] in my bosom [H2436] .

3:21 And when I rose [H6965] in the morning [H1242] to give my child [H1121] suck [H3243] , behold, it was dead [H4191] : but when I had considered [H995] it in the morning [H1242] , behold, it was not my son [H1121] , which I did bear [H3205] .

3:22 And the other [H312] woman [H802] said [H559] , Nay; but the living [H2416] [is] my son [H1121] , and the dead [H4191] [is] thy son [H1121] . And this said [H559] , No; but the dead [H4191] [is] thy son [H1121] , and the living [H2416] [is] my son [H1121] . Thus they spake [H1696] before [H6440] the king [H4428] .

3:23 Then said [H559] the king [H4428] , The one [H2063] saith [H559] , This [is] my son [H1121] that liveth [H2416] , and thy son [H1121] [is] the dead [H4191] : and the other [H2063] saith [H559] , Nay; but thy son [H1121] [is] the dead [H4191] , and my son [H1121] [is] the living [H2416] .

3:24 And the king [H4428] said [H559] , Bring [H3947] me a sword [H2719] . And they brought [H935] a sword [H2719] before [H6440] the king [H4428] .

3:25 And the king [H4428] said [H559] , Divide [H1504] the living [H2416] child [H3206] in two [H8147] , and give [H5414] half [H2677] to the one [H259] , and half [H2677] to the other [H259] .

3:26 Then spake [H559] the woman [H802] whose the living [H2416] child [H1121] [was] unto the king [H4428] , for her bowels [H7356] yearned [H3648] upon her son [H1121] , and she said [H559] , O [H994] my lord [H113] , give [H5414] her the living [H2416] child [H3205] , and in no wise [H4191] slay [H4191] it. But the other said [H559] , Let it be neither mine nor thine, [but] divide [H1504] [it].(yearned: Heb. were hot)

3:27 Then the king [H4428] answered [H6030] and said [H559] , Give [H5414] her the living [H2416] child [H3205] , and in no wise [H4191] slay [H4191] it: she [is] the mother [H517] thereof.

3:28 And all Israel [H3478] heard [H8085] of the judgment [H4941] which the king [H4428] had judged [H8199] ; and they feared [H3372] the king [H6440] : for they saw [H7200] that the wisdom [H2451] of God [H430] [was] in him [H7130] , to do [H6213] judgment [H4941] .(in him: Heb. in the midst of him)
