I made me greatworks; I builded me houses; I planted me vineyards:5
I made me gardens and orchards, and I plantedtrees in them of all kind of fruits:6
I made me pools of water, to water therewith the wood that bringeth forthtrees:7
I got me servants and maidens, and had servants borna in my house; also I had greatpossessions of great and small cattle above all that were in Jerusalembefore me:
I gathered me also silver and gold, and the peculiar treasure of kings and of the provinces: I gat me men singers and women singers , and the delights of the sons of men, as musical instruments , and that of all sorts.
So I was great , and increased more than all that were before me in Jerusalem: also my wisdomremained with me.
