I will give one tribe1 to his son so that David my servant may always have a lamp2 before me in Jerusalem, the city where I chose to put my Name.
However, as for you, I will take you, and you will rule3 over all that your heart desires;4 you will be king over Israel.
If you do whatever I command you and walk in my ways and do what is right5 in my eyes by keeping my statutes6 and commands, as David my servant did, I will be with you. I will build you a dynasty7 as enduring as the one I built for David and will give Israel to you.

Solomon reigned in Jerusalem over all Israel forty years.
Then he rested with his fathers and was buried in the city of David his father. And Rehoboam10 his son succeeded him as king.
