2 Chronicles 1

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. NRS 1 Solomon son of David established himself in his kingdom; the Lord his God was with him and made him exceedingly great. CEB 2 Solomon summoned all Israel, including the officers of the army, the judges, and every Israelite leader who was the head of a family. NRS 2 Solomon summoned all Israel, the commanders of the thousands and of the hundreds, the judges, and all the leaders of all 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. NRS 3 Then Solomon, and the whole assembly with him, went to the high place that was at Gibeon; for God's tent of meeting, which Moses the servant of the Lord had made in the wilderness, was there. CEB 4 Now David had already brought God's chest from Kiriath-jearim to the place he had prepared for it because he had pitched a tent for the chest in Jerusalem. NRS 4 (But David had brought the ark of God up from Kiriath-jearim to the place that David had prepared for it; for he had pitched a tent for it in Jerusalem.) CEB 5 But the bronze altar that Bezalel, Uri's son and Hur's grandson, had made was there in front of the LORD's dwelling, so that is where Solomon and the assembly worshipped. NRS 5 Moreover the bronze altar that Bezalel son of Uri, son of Hur, had made, was there in front of the tabernacle of the Lord. And Solomon and the assembly inquired at it. CEB 6 Solomon went there to the bronze altar in the LORD's presence at the meeting tent and offered a thousand entirely burned offerings upon it. NRS 6 Solomon went up there to the bronze altar before the Lord, which was at the tent of meeting, and offered a thousand burnt offerings on it. CEB 7 That night God appeared to Solomon and said, "Ask whatever you wish, and I will give it to you." NRS 7 That night God appeared to Solomon, and said to him, "Ask what I should give you." CEB 8 "You showed so much kindness to my father David," Solomon replied to God,"and you have made me king in his place. NRS 8 Solomon said to God, "You have shown great and steadfast love to my father David, and have made me succeed him as king. 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. NRS 9 O Lord God, let your promise to my father David now be fulfilled, for you have made me king over a people 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." NRS 10 Give me now wisdom and knowledge to go out and come in before this people, for who can rule 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— NRS 11 God answered Solomon, "Because this was in your heart, and you have not asked for possessions, wealth, honor, or the life of those who hate you, and have not even asked for long life, but have asked for wisdom and knowledge for yourself that you may rule 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." NRS 12 wisdom and knowledge are granted to you. I will also give you riches, possessions, and honor, such as none of the kings had who were before you, and none after you shall have the like." CEB 13 Then Solomon went from the shrine in Gibeon, from the meeting tent to Jerusalem where he ruled over Israel. NRS 13 So Solomon came from the high place at Gibeon, from the tent of meeting, to Jerusalem. And he reigned over Israel. CEB 14 Solomon acquired more and more chariots and horses until he had fourteen hundred chariots and twelve thousand horses, which he stationed in chariot cities and with the king in Jerusalem. NRS 14 Solomon gathered together chariots and horses; he had fourteen hundred chariots and twelve thousand horses, which he stationed in the chariot cities and with the king in Jerusalem. CEB 15 In Jerusalem, the king made silver and gold as common as stones, and cedar as plentiful as sycamore trees that grow in the foothills. NRS 15 The king made silver and gold as common in Jerusalem as stone, and he made cedar as plentiful as the sycamore of the Shephelah. CEB 16 Solomon's horses were imported from Egypt and Kue, purchased from Kue by the king's agents at the going price. NRS 16 Solomon's horses were imported from Egypt and Kue; the king's traders received them from Kue at the prevailing price. CEB 17 They would import a chariot from Egypt for six hundred pieces of silver and a horse for one hundred fifty, and then export them to all the Hittite and Aramean kings. NRS 17 They imported from Egypt, and then exported, a chariot for six hundred shekels of silver, and a horse for one hundred fifty; so through them these were exported to all the kings of the Hittites and the kings of Aram.
