ContextSolomon Prays for Wisdom
7In that night did God appear to Solomon, and said to him, Ask what I shall give you. 8And Solomon said to God, You have showed great mercy to David my father, and have made me to reign in his stead. 9Now, O LORD God, let your promise to David my father be established: for you have made me king over a people like the dust of the earth in multitude. 10Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people: for who can judge this your people, that is so great? 11And God said to Solomon, Because this was in your heart, and you have not asked riches, wealth, or honor, nor the life of your enemies, neither yet have asked long life; but have asked wisdom and knowledge for yourself, that you may judge my people, over whom I have made you king: 12Wisdom and knowledge is granted to you; and I will give you riches, and wealth, and honor, such as none of the kings have had that have been before you, neither shall there any after you have the like. 13Then Solomon came from his journey to the high place that was at Gibeon to Jerusalem, from before the tabernacle of the congregation, and reigned over Israel.
