And all the kings of the earth sought the presence of Solomon to hear his wisdom, which God had put into his mind.
Every one of them brought his present, articles of silver and of gold, garments, myrrh, spices, horses, and mules, so much year by year.
And Solomon had four thousand stalls for horses and chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen, whom he stationed in the chariot cities and with the king in Jerusalem.
And he ruled over all the kings from the Euphra'tes to the land of the Philistines, and to the border of Egypt.
And the king made silver as common in Jerusalem as stone, and cedar as plentiful as the sycamore of the Shephe'lah.
And horses were imported for Solomon from Egypt and from all lands.
Now the rest of the acts of Solomon, from first to last, are they not written in the history of Nathan the prophet, and in the prophecy of Ahi'jah the Shi'lonite, and in the visions of Iddo the seer concerning Jerobo'am the son of Nebat?
Solomon reigned in Jerusalem over all Israel forty years.
And Solomon slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David his father; and Rehobo'am his son reigned in his stead.
