1 Kings 3

NAS 1 Then Solomon formed a marriage alliance with Pharaoh king of Egypt, and took Pharaoh's daughter and brought her to the city of David until he had finished building his own house and the house of the LORD and the wall around Jerusalem. NIV 1 Solomon made an alliance with Pharaoh king of Egypt and married his daughter. He brought her to the City of David until he finished building his palace and the temple of the LORD, and the wall around Jerusalem. NAS 2 The people were still sacrificing on the high places, because there was no house built for the name of the LORD until those days. NIV 2 The people, however, were still sacrificing at the high places, because a temple had not yet been built for the Name of the LORD. NAS 3 Now Solomon loved the LORD , walking in the statutes of his father David, except he sacrificed and burned incense on the high places. NIV 3 Solomon showed his love for the LORD by walking according to the instructions given him by his father David, except that he offered sacrifices and burned incense on the high places. NAS 4 The king went to Gibeon to sacrifice there, for that was the great high place; Solomon offered a thousand burnt offerings on that altar. NIV 4 The king went to Gibeon to offer sacrifices, for that was the most important high place, and Solomon offered a thousand burnt offerings on that altar. NAS 5 In Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream at night; and God said, "Ask what you wish me to give you." NIV 5 At Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon during the night in a dream, and God said, “Ask for whatever you want me to give you.” NAS 6 Then Solomon said, "You have shown great lovingkindness to Your servant David my father, according as he walked before You in truth and righteousness and uprightness of heart toward You; and You have reserved for him this great lovingkindness, that You have given him a son to sit on his throne, as it is this day. NIV 6 Solomon answered, “You have shown great kindness to your servant, my father David, because he was faithful to you and righteous and upright in heart. You have continued this great kindness to him and have given him a son to sit on his throne this very day. NAS 7 "Now, O LORD my God, You have made Your servant king in place of my father David, yet I am but a little child; I do not know how to go out or come in. NIV 7 “Now, LORD my God, you have made your servant king in place of my father David. But I am only a little child and do not know how to carry out my duties. NAS 8 "Your servant is in the midst of Your people which You have chosen, a great people who are too many to be numbered or counted. NIV 8 Your servant is here among the people you have chosen, a great people, too numerous to count or number. NAS 9 "So give Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people to discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours?" NIV 9 So give your servant a discerning heart to govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong. For who is able to govern this great people of yours?” NAS 10 It was pleasing in the sight of the Lord that Solomon had asked this thing. NIV 10 The Lord was pleased that Solomon had asked for this. NAS 11 God said to him, "Because you have asked this thing and have not asked for yourself long life, nor have asked riches for yourself, nor have you asked for the life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself discernment to understand justice, NIV 11 So God said to him, “Since you have asked for this and not for long life or wealth for yourself, nor have asked for the death of your enemies but for discernment in administering justice, NAS 12 behold, I have done according to your words. Behold, I have given you a wise and discerning heart, so that there has been no one like you before you, nor shall one like you arise after you. NIV 12 I will do what you have asked. I will give you a wise and discerning heart, so that there will never have been anyone like you, nor will there ever be. NAS 13 "I have also given you what you have not asked, both riches and honor, so that there will not be any among the kings like you all your days. NIV 13 Moreover, I will give you what you have not asked for—both wealth and honor—so that in your lifetime you will have no equal among kings. NAS 14 "If you walk in My ways, keeping My statutes and commandments, as your father David walked, then I will prolong your days." NIV 14 And if you walk in obedience to me and keep my decrees and commands as David your father did, I will give you a long life.” NAS 15 Then Solomon awoke, and behold, it was a dream. And he came to Jerusalem and stood before the ark of the covenant of the Lord , and offered burnt offerings and made peace offerings, and made a feast for all his servants. NIV 15 Then Solomon awoke—and he realized it had been a dream. He returned to Jerusalem, stood before the ark of the Lord’s covenant and sacrificed burnt offerings and fellowship offerings. Then he gave a feast for all his court. NAS 16 Then two women who were harlots came to the king and stood before him. NIV 16 Now two prostitutes came to the king and stood before him. NAS 17 The one woman said, "Oh, my lord , this woman and I live in the same house; and I gave birth to a child while she was in the house. NIV 17 One of them said, “Pardon me, my lord. This woman and I live in the same house, and I had a baby while she was there with me. NAS 18 "It happened on the third day after I gave birth, that this woman also gave birth to a child, and we were together. There was no stranger with us in the house, only the two of us in the house. NIV 18 The third day after my child was born, this woman also had a baby. We were alone; there was no one in the house but the two of us. NAS 19 "This woman's son died in the night, because she lay on it. NIV 19 “During the night this woman’s son died because she lay on him. NAS 20 "So she arose in the middle of the night and took my son from beside me while your maidservant slept, and laid him in her bosom, and laid her dead son in my bosom. NIV 20 So she got up in the middle of the night and took my son from my side while I your servant was asleep. She put him by her breast and put her dead son by my breast. NAS 21 "When I rose in the morning to nurse my son, behold, he was dead; but when I looked at him carefully in the morning, behold, he was not my son, whom I had borne." NIV 21 The next morning, I got up to nurse my son—and he was dead! But when I looked at him closely in the morning light, I saw that it wasn’t the son I had borne.” NAS 22 Then the other woman said, "No! For the living one is my son, and the dead one is your son." But the first woman said, "No! For the dead one is your son, and the living one is my son." Thus they spoke before the king. NIV 22 The other woman said, “No! The living one is my son; the dead one is yours.” But the first one insisted, “No! The dead one is yours; the living one is mine.” And so they argued before the king. NAS 23 Then the king said, "The one says, 'This is my son who is living, and your son is the dead one'; and the other says, 'No! For your son is the dead one, and my son is the living one.' " NIV 23 The king said, “This one says, ‘My son is alive and your son is dead,’ while that one says, ‘No! Your son is dead and mine is alive.’ ” NAS 24 The king said, "Get me a sword." So they brought a sword before the king. NIV 24 Then the king said, “Bring me a sword.” So they brought a sword for the king. NAS 25 The king said, "Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one and half to the other." NIV 25 He then gave an order: “Cut the living child in two and give half to one and half to the other.” NAS 26 Then the woman whose child was the living one spoke to the king, for she was deeply stirred over her son and said, "Oh, my lord , give her the living child, and by no means kill him." But the other said, "He shall be neither mine nor yours; divide him!" NIV 26 The woman whose son was alive was deeply moved out of love for her son and said to the king, “Please, my lord, give her the living baby! Don’t kill him!” But the other said, “Neither I nor you shall have him. Cut him in two!” NAS 27 Then the king said, "Give the first woman the living child, and by no means kill him. She is his mother." NIV 27 Then the king gave his ruling: “Give the living baby to the first woman. Do not kill him; she is his mother.” NAS 28 When all Israel heard of the judgment which the king had handed down, they feared the king, for they saw that the wisdom of God was in him to administer justice. NIV 28 When all Israel heard the verdict the king had given, they held the king in awe, because they saw that he had wisdom from God to administer justice.
