3:2
et tamen populus immolabat in excelsis non enim aedificatumerat templum nomini Domini usque in die illo

3:3
dilexit autem Salomon Dominum ambulans in praeceptis Davidpatris sui excepto quod in excelsis immolabat et accendebatthymiama

3:4
abiit itaque in Gabaon ut immolaret ibi illud quippe eratexcelsum maximum mille hostias in holocaustum obtulit Salomonsuper altare illud in Gabaon

3:5
apparuit Dominus Salomoni per somnium nocte dicens postulaquod vis ut dem tibi

3:6
et ait Salomon tu fecisti cum servo tuo David patre meomisericordiam magnam sicut ambulavit in conspectu tuo inveritate et iustitia et recto corde tecum custodisti eimisericordiam tuam grandem et dedisti ei filium sedentem superthronum eius sicut et hodie

3:7
et nunc Domine Deus tu regnare fecisti servum tuum pro Davidpatre meo ego autem sum puer parvus et ignorans egressum etintroitum meum

3:8
et servus tuus in medio est populi quem elegisti populiinfiniti qui numerari et supputari non potest prae multitudine

3:9
dabis ergo servo tuo cor docile ut iudicare possit populumtuum et discernere inter malum et bonum quis enim potestiudicare populum istum populum tuum hunc multum

3:10
placuit ergo sermo coram Domino quod Salomon remhuiuscemodi postulasset

3:11
et dixit Deus Salomoni quia postulasti verbum hoc et nonpetisti tibi dies multos nec divitias aut animam inimicorumtuorum sed postulasti tibi sapientiam ad discernendum iudicium

3:12
ecce feci tibi secundum sermones tuos et dedi tibi corsapiens et intellegens in tantum ut nullus ante te similis tuifuerit nec post te surrecturus sit

3:27
respondens rex ait date huic infantem vivum et nonoccidatur haec est mater eius

3:28
audivit itaque omnis Israhel iudicium quod iudicasset rexet timuerunt regem videntes sapientiam Dei esse in eo adfaciendum iudicium

003:001
And Solomon made affinity with Pharaoh king of Egypt, and took Pharaoh's daughter, and brought her into the city of David, until he had made an end of building his own house, and the house of the LORD, and the wall of Jerusalem round about.

003:002
Only the people sacrificed in high places, because there was no house built unto the name of the LORD, until those days.

003:003
And Solomon loved the LORD, walking in the statutes of David his father: only he sacrificed and burnt incense in high places.

003:004
And the king went to Gibeon to sacrifice there; for that was the great high place: a thousand burnt offerings did Solomon offer upon that altar.

003:005
In Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee.

003:006
And Solomon said, Thou hast showed unto thy servant David my father great mercy, according as he walked before thee in truth, and in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart with thee; and thou hast kept for him this great kindness, that thou hast given him a son to sit on his throne, as it is this day.

003:007
And now, O LORD my God, thou hast made thy servant king instead of David my father: and I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in.

003:008
And thy servant is in the midst of thy people which thou hast chosen, a great people, that cannot be numbered nor counted for multitude.

003:009
Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?

003:010
And the speech pleased the LORD, that Solomon had asked this thing.

003:011
And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment;

003:012
Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee.

003:013
And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honor: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days.

003:014
And if thou wilt walk in my ways, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as thy father David did walk, then I will lengthen thy days.

003:015
And Solomon awoke; and, behold, it was a dream. And he came to Jerusalem, and stood before the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and offered up burnt offerings, and offered peace offerings, and made a feast to all his servants.

003:016
Then came there two women, that were harlots, unto the king, and stood before him.

003:017
And the one woman said, O my lord, I and this woman dwell in one house; and I was delivered of a child with her in the house.

003:018
And it came to pass the third day after that I was delivered, that this woman was delivered also: and we were together; there was no stranger with us in the house, save we two in the house.

003:019
And this woman's child died in the night; because she overlaid it.

003:020
And she arose at midnight, and took my son from beside me, while thine handmaid slept, and laid it in her bosom, and laid her dead child in my bosom.

003:021
And when I rose in the morning to give my child suck, behold, it was dead: but when I had considered it in the morning, behold, it was not my son, which I did bear.

003:022
And the other woman said, Nay; but the living is my son, and the dead is thy son. And this said, No; but the dead is thy son, and the living is my son. Thus they spake before the king.

003:023
Then said the king, The one saith, This is my son that liveth, and thy son is the dead: and the other saith, Nay; but thy son is the dead, and my son is the living.

003:024
And the king said, Bring me a sword. And they brought a sword before the king.

003:025
And the king said, Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one, and half to the other.

003:026
Then spake the woman whose the living child was unto the king, for her bowels yearned upon her son, and she said, O my lord, give her the living child, and in no wise slay it. But the other said, Let it be neither mine nor thine, but divide it.

003:027
Then the king answered and said, Give her the living child, and in no wise slay it: she is the mother thereof.

003:028
And all Israel heard of the judgment which the king had judged; and they feared the king: for they saw that the wisdom of God was in him, to do judgment.
