Solomon had four thousand stalls for horses and chariots,1 and twelve thousand horses,a which he kept in the chariot cities and also with him in Jerusalem.
He ruled2 over all the kings from the Riverb3 to the land of the Philistines, as far as the border of Egypt.427
The king made silver as common in Jerusalem as stones, and cedar as plentiful as sycamore-fig trees in the foothills.
Solomon's horses were imported from Egyptc and from all other countries.
As for the other events of Solomon's reign, from beginning to end, are they not written in the records of Nathan5 the prophet, in the prophecy of Ahijah6 the Shilonite and in the visions of Iddo the seer concerning Jeroboam7 son of Nebat?
Solomon reigned in Jerusalem over all Israel forty years.
Then he rested with his fathers and was buried in the city of David8 his father. And Rehoboam his son succeeded him as king.
