\\INTRODUCTION TO FIRST KINGS 4\\

As in the preceding chapter we have a proof of the wisdom and
understanding which the Lord gave to Solomon, as promised, so in this
an account is given of the riches and honour he was possessed of; of
him, as king over all Israel, and of his princes, \\#1Ki 4:1-6\\; of the
providers of food for his household in the several parts of the land,
\\#1Ki 4:7-19\\; of the largeness and extent of his dominions, and of the
peace and prosperity thereof, \\#1Ki 4:20,21,24,25\\; of his daily
provisions for his household and for his cattle, \\#1Ki 4:22,23,26-28\\;
and of his superior wisdom and knowledge to all others in all nations,
which brought some out of all to hear it, \\#1Ki 4:29-34\\.
