Solomon, the son of King David, now took firm control of the kingdom, for the LORD his God was with him and made him very powerful.
He called together all Israel -- the generals and captains of the army, the judges, and all the political and clan leaders.
Then Solomon led the entire assembly to the hill at Gibeon where God's Tabernacle a was located. This was the Tabernacle that Moses, the LORD's servant, had constructed in the wilderness.
