CEB 1 Solomon, David's son, was securely established over his kingdom because the LORD his God was with him and made him very great.

NIV 2 Then Solomon spoke to all Israel—to the commanders of thousands and commanders of hundreds, to the judges and to all the leaders in Israel, the heads of families— CEB 3 Then Solomon, accompanied by the whole assembly, went to the shrine at Gibeon because that is where God's meeting tent was, the tent that the LORD's servant Moses had made in the wilderness.

NIV 8 Solomon answered God, “You have shown great kindness to David my father and have made me king in his place. CEB 9 Now, LORD God, let your promise to my father David be fulfilled because you have made me king over a people as numerous as the earth's dust. NIV 9 Now, LORD God, let your promise to my father David be confirmed, for you have made me king over a people who are as numerous as the dust of the earth. CEB 10 Give me wisdom and knowledge so I can lead this people, because no one can govern this great people of yours without your help." NIV 10 Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?” CEB 11 God said to Solomon, "Since this is what you wish, and because you've asked for wisdom and knowledge to govern my people over whom I've made you king—rather than asking for wealth, riches, fame, victory over those who hate you, or even a long life— NIV 11 God said to Solomon, “Since this is your heart’s desire and you have not asked for wealth, possessions or honor, nor for the death of your enemies, and since you have not asked for a long life but for wisdom and knowledge to govern my people over whom I have made you king, CEB 12 your request for wisdom and knowledge is granted. But I will also give you wealth, riches, and fame beyond that of any king before you or after you." NIV 12 therefore wisdom and knowledge will be given you. And I will also give you wealth, possessions and honor, such as no king who was before you ever had and none after you will have.” CEB 13 Then Solomon went from the shrine in Gibeon, from the meeting tent to Jerusalem where he ruled over Israel.
