2 Chronicles 1:3-10 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
3 and Solomon and the whole assembly went to the high place at Gibeon,1 for God's Tent of Meeting2 was there, which Moses3 the LORD's servant had made in the desert. 4 Now David had brought up the ark4 of God from Kiriath Jearim to the place he had prepared for it, because he had pitched a tent5 for it in Jerusalem. 5 But the bronze altar6 that Bezalel7 son of Uri, the son of Hur, had made was in Gibeon in front of the tabernacle of the LORD; so Solomon and the assembly inquired8 of him there. 6 Solomon went up to the bronze altar before the LORD in the Tent of Meeting and offered a thousand burnt offerings on it. 7 That night God appeared9 to Solomon and said to him, "Ask for whatever you want me to give you." 8 Solomon answered God, "You have shown great kindness to David my father and have made me10 king in his place. 9 Now, LORD God, let your promise11 to my father David be confirmed, for you have made me king over a people who are as numerous as the dust of the earth.12 10 Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead13 this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?"
