So King Solomon ruled over all Israel.
And these were his chief officials: Azariah son of Zadok—the priest;
Elihoreph and Ahijah, sons of Shisha—secretaries; Jehoshaphat son of Ahilud—recorder;
Benaiah son of Jehoiada—commander in chief; Zadok and Abiathar—priests;
Azariah son of Nathan—in charge of the district governors; Zabud son of Nathan—a priest and adviser to the king;
Ahishar—palace administrator; Adoniram son of Abda—in charge of forced labor.
Solomon had twelve district governors over all Israel, who supplied provisions for the king and the royal household. Each one had to provide supplies for one month in the year.
These are their names: Ben-Hur—in the hill country of Ephraim;
Ben-Deker—in Makaz, Shaalbim, Beth Shemesh and Elon Bethhanan;
Ben-Hesed—in Arubboth (Sokoh and all the land of Hepher were his);
Ben-Abinadab—in Naphoth Dor (he was married to Taphath daughter of Solomon);
