Chapter 3

  1. 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
  2. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 10. And the speech
    H1697
    pleased
    H3190
    H5869
    the Lord,
    H136
    that Solomon
    H8010
    had asked
    H7592
    this thing.
    H1697
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 16. Then came
    H935
    there two
    H8147
    women,
    H802
    that were harlots,
    H2181
    unto the king,
    H4428
    and stood
    H5975
    before
    H6440
    him.
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 19. And this woman's
    H802
    child
    H1121
    died
    H4191
    in the night;
    H3915
    because she overlaid
    H7901
    it.
  20. 20. And she arose
    H6965
    at midnight,
    H3915
    H8432
    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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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
  26. 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.
  27. 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.
  28. 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.
