Yehudah and Yisra'el were many as the sand which is by the sea in multitude, eating and drinking and making merry.
Shlomo ruled over all the kingdoms from the River to the land of the Pelishtim, and to the border of Mitzrayim: they brought tribute, and served Shlomo all the days of his life.
Shlomo's provision for one day was thirty measures of fine flour, and sixty measures of meal,
ten fat oxen, and twenty oxen out of the pastures, and one hundred sheep, besides harts, and gazelles, and roebucks, and fattened fowl.
For he had dominion over all [the region] on this side the River, from Tifsach even to `Aza, over all the kings on this side the River: and he had shalom on all sides round about him.
Yehudah and Yisra'el lived safely, every man under his vine and under his fig tree, from Dan even to Be'er-Sheva, all the days of Shlomo.
Shlomo had forty thousand stalls of horses for his chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen.
Those officers provided victuals for king Shlomo, and for all who came to king Shlomo's table, every man in his month; they let nothing be lacking.
Barley also and straw for the horses and swift steeds brought they to the place where [the officers] were, every man according to his charge.
God gave Shlomo wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and very great understanding, even as the sand that is on the sea-shore.
Shlomo's wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the children of the east, and all the wisdom of Mitzrayim.
For he was wiser than all men; than Etan the Ezrachite, and Heman, and Kalkol, and Darda, the sons of Machol: and his fame was in all the nations round about.
He spoke three thousand proverbs; and his songs were one thousand five.
He spoke of trees, from the cedar that is in Levanon even to the hyssop that springs out of the wall; he spoke also of animals, and of birds, and of creeping things, and of fish.
There came of all peoples to hear the wisdom of Shlomo, from all kings of the eretz, who had heard of his wisdom.
