I made great my works, I builded for me houses, I planted for me vineyards.
I made for me gardens and paradises, and I planted in them trees of every fruit.
I made for me pools of water, to water from them a forest shooting forth trees.
I got men-servants, and maid-servants, and sons of the house were to me; also, I had much substance -- herd and flock -- above all who had been before me in Jerusalem.
I gathered for me also silver and gold, and the peculiar treasure of kings and of the provinces. I prepared for me men-singers and women-singers, and the luxuries of the sons of man -- a wife and wives.
And I became great, and increased above every one who had been before me in Jerusalem; also, my wisdom stood with me.
