And they offered sacrifices to the LORD, and on the next day offered burnt offerings to the LORD, 1,000 bulls, 1,000 rams, and 1,000 lambs, with their 1drink offerings, and sacrifices in abundance for all Israel.
And they ate and drank before the LORD on that day with great gladness. And they made Solomon the son of David king 2the second time, and they 3anointed him as prince for the LORD, and 4Zadok as priest.
235Then Solomon sat on the 6throne of the LORD as king in place of David his father. And he prospered, and all Israel obeyed him.
All the leaders and the mighty men, and also all the sons of King David, pledged their allegiance to King Solomon.
And the LORD made Solomon very 7great in the sight of all Israel and 8bestowed on him such royal majesty as had not been on any king before him in Israel.
