Solomon had 4,000 stalls for his horses and chariots, and he had 12,000 horses. He stationed some of them in the chariot cities, and some near him in Jerusalem.
He ruled over all the kings from the Euphrates River in the north to the land of the Philistines and the border of Egypt in the south.
The king made silver as plentiful in Jerusalem as stone. And valuable cedar timber was as common as the sycamore-fig trees that grow in the foothills of Judah.
Solomon’s horses were imported from Egypt and many other countries.
The rest of the events of Solomon’s reign, from beginning to end, are recorded in and and also in concerning Jeroboam son of Nebat.
Solomon ruled in Jerusalem over all Israel for forty years.
When he died, he was buried in the City of David, named for his father. Then his son Rehoboam became the next king.
