1 καὶ ἐνίσχυσεν Σαλωμων υἱὸς Δαυιδ ἐπὶ τὴν βασιλείαν αὐτοῦ καὶ κύριος ὁ θεὸς αὐτοῦ με{T'} αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐμεγάλυνεν αὐτὸν εἰς ὕψος 2 καὶ εἶπεν Σαλωμων πρὸς πάντα Ισραηλ τοῖς χιλιάρχοις καὶ τοῖς ἑκατοντάρχοις καὶ τοῖς κριταῖς καὶ πᾶσιν τοῖς ἄρχουσιν ἐναντίον Ισραηλ τοῖς ἄρχουσι τῶν πατριῶν 3 καὶ ἐπορεύθη Σαλωμων καὶ πᾶσα ἡ ἐκκλησία με{T'} αὐτοῦ εἰς τὴν ὑψηλὴν τὴν ἐν Γαβαων οὗ ἐκεῖ ἦν ἡ σκηνὴ τοῦ μαρτυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ ἣν ἐποίησεν Μωυσῆς παῖς κυρίου ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ 4 ἀλλὰ κιβωτὸν τοῦ θεοῦ ἀνήνεγκεν Δαυιδ ἐκ πόλεως Καριαθιαριμ ὅτι ἡτοίμασεν αὐτῇ σκηνὴν εἰς Ιερουσαλημ 5 καὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον τὸ χαλκοῦν ὃ ἐποίησεν Βεσελεηλ υἱὸς Ουριου υἱοῦ Ωρ ἐκεῖ ἦν ἔναντι τῆς σκηνῆς κυρίου καὶ ἐξεζήτησεν αὐτὸ Σαλωμων καὶ ἡ ἐκκλησία 6 καὶ ἀνήνεγκεν ἐκεῖ Σαλωμων ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον τὸ χαλκοῦν ἐνώπιον κυρίου τὸ ἐν τῇ σκηνῇ καὶ ἀνήνεγκεν ἐ{P'} αὐτὸ ὁλοκαύτωσιν χιλίαν 1 Solomon, then, king David’s heir, was firmly seated on his throne, and the Lord his God was with him, brought him to great renown. 2 And now he sent out his summons to the whole of Israel, to commander and captain and warrior chief, to all judges of the people and heads of their families, 3 and, with such great retinue, betook himself to the hill-sanctuary at Gabaon. Gabaon was still the resting-place of that tabernacle which God’s servant Moses fashioned, out in the desert, to be the witness of the divine covenant. 4 The ark of God had left it, first for Cariathiarim, then for the site in Jerusalem where David had brought it, giving it a tent of its own. 5 But the brazen altar which Beseleel made, Beseleel, son of Uri and grandson of Hur, was there still before the entrance of the Lord’s tabernacle. To it Solomon repaired, and the whole assembly with him; 6 on that brazen altar, before the tabernacle that bore witness of the Lord’s covenant, he offered a thousand victims in sacrifice. 1 Confortatus est ergo Salomon filius David in regno suo, et Dominus Deus ejus erat cum eo, et magnificavit eum in excelsum. 2 Præcepitque Salomon universo Israëli, tribunis, et centurionibus, et ducibus, et judicibus omnis Israël, et principibus familiarum: 3 et abiit cum universa multitudine in excelsum Gabaon, ubi erat tabernaculum fœderis Dei, quod fecit Moyses famulus Dei in solitudine. 4 Arcam autem Dei adduxerat David de Cariathiarim in locum quem præparaverat ei, et ubi fixerat illi tabernaculum, hoc est, in Jerusalem. 5 Altare quoque æneum quod fabricatus fuerat Beseleel filius Uri filii Hur, ibi erat coram tabernaculo Domini: quod et requisivit Salomon, et omnis ecclesia. 6 Ascenditque Salomon ad altare æneum, coram tabernaculo fœderis Domini, et obtulit in eo mille hostias.
7 ἐν τῇ νυκτὶ ἐκείνῃ ὤφθη ὁ θεὸς τῷ Σαλωμων καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ αἴτησαι τί σοι δῶ 8 καὶ εἶπεν Σαλωμων πρὸς τὸν θεόν σὺ ἐποίησας μετὰ Δαυιδ τοῦ πατρός μου ἔλεος μέγα καὶ ἐβασίλευσάς με ἀν{T'} αὐτοῦ 9 καὶ νῦν κύριε ὁ θεός πιστωθήτω τὸ ὄνομά σου ἐπὶ Δαυιδ πατέρα μου ὅτι σὺ ἐβασίλευσάς με ἐπὶ λαὸν πολὺν ὡς ὁ χοῦς τῆς γῆς 10 νῦν σοφίαν καὶ σύνεσιν δός μοι καὶ ἐξελεύσομαι ἐνώπιον τοῦ λαοῦ τούτου καὶ εἰσελεύσομαι ὅτι τίς κρινεῖ τὸν λαόν σου τὸν μέγαν τοῦτον 11 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ θεὸς πρὸς Σαλωμων ἀν{Q'} ὧν ἐγένετο τοῦτο ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ σου καὶ οὐκ ᾐτήσω πλοῦτον χρημάτων οὐδὲ δόξαν οὐδὲ τὴν ψυχὴν τῶν ὑπεναντίων καὶ ἡμέρας πολλὰς οὐκ ᾐτήσω καὶ ᾔτησας σεαυτῷ σοφίαν καὶ σύνεσιν ὅπως κρίνῃς τὸν λαόν μου ἐ{F'} ὃν ἐβασίλευσά σε ἐ{P'} αὐτόν 12 τὴν σοφίαν καὶ τὴν σύνεσιν δίδωμί σοι καὶ πλοῦτον καὶ χρήματα καὶ δόξαν δώσω σοι ὡς οὐκ ἐγενήθη ὅμοιός σοι ἐν τοῖς βασιλεῦσι τοῖς ἔμπροσθέ σου καὶ μετὰ σὲ οὐκ ἔσται οὕτως 7 That same night, the Lord appeared to him, bidding him choose what gift he would. 8 Thou hast been very merciful, Solomon answered, to my father David, in granting him a son to succeed him; 9 and now, Lord God, make good thy promise to him. Since thou hast made me king over thy people, a great people countless as the dust, 10 grant me wisdom and discernment in all my dealings with them. How else should a man sit in judgement over such a people as this, great as thy people is great? 11 And the Lord answered, For this choice thou hast made, thou shalt be rewarded. Thou didst not ask for riches or possessions, for glory, or vengeance upon thy enemies, or a long life. Thy prayer was for wisdom and discernment, to make thee a better judge for the subjects I have given thee. 12 Wisdom and discernment thou shalt have; and I will give thee riches and possession too, and such glory as never king shall have before or after thee.[1] 7 Ecce autem in ipsa nocte apparuit ei Deus, dicens: Postula quod vis, ut dem tibi. 8 Dixitque Salomon Deo: Tu fecisti cum David patre meo misericordiam magnam, et constituisti me regem pro eo. 9 Nunc ergo Domine Deus, impleatur sermo tuus quem pollicitus es David patri meo: tu enim me fecisti regem super populum tuum multum, qui tam innumerabilis est quam pulvis terræ. 10 Da mihi sapientiam et intelligentiam, ut ingrediar et egrediar coram populo tuo: quis enim potest hunc populum tuum digne, qui tam grandis est, judicare? 11 Dixit autem Deus ad Salomonem: Quia hoc magis placuit cordi tuo, et non postulasti divitias, et substantiam, et gloriam, neque animas eorum qui te oderant, sed nec dies vitæ plurimos: petisti autem sapientiam et scientiam, ut judicare possis populum meum super quem constitui te regem: 12 sapientia et scientia data sunt tibi: divitias autem et substantiam et gloriam dabo tibi, ita ut nullus in regibus nec ante te nec post te fuerit similis tui.
13 καὶ ἦλθεν Σαλωμων ἐκ βαμα τῆς ἐν Γαβαων εἰς Ιερουσαλημ ἀπὸ προσώπου σκηνῆς μαρτυρίου καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ἐπὶ Ισραηλ 14 καὶ συνήγαγεν Σαλωμων ἅρματα καὶ ἱππεῖς καὶ ἐγένοντο αὐτῷ χίλια καὶ τετρακόσια ἅρματα καὶ δώδεκα χιλιάδες ἱππέων καὶ κατέλιπεν αὐτὰ ἐν πόλεσιν τῶν ἁρμάτων καὶ ὁ λαὸς μετὰ τοῦ βασιλέως ἐν Ιερουσαλημ 15 καὶ ἔθηκεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τὸ χρυσίον καὶ τὸ ἀργύριον ἐν Ιερουσαλημ ὡς λίθους καὶ τὰς κέδρους ἐν τῇ Ιουδαίᾳ ὡς συκαμίνους τὰς ἐν τῇ πεδινῇ εἰς πλῆθος 16 καὶ ἡ ἔξοδος τῶν ἵππων τῶν Σαλωμων ἐξ Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἡ τιμὴ τῶν ἐμπόρων τοῦ βασιλέως ἐμπορεύεσθαι ἠγόραζον 17 καὶ ἀνέβαινον καὶ ἐξῆγον ἐξ Αἰγύπτου ἅρμα ἓν ἑξακοσίων ἀργυρίου καὶ ἵππον ἑκατὸν καὶ πεντήκοντα καὶ οὕτως πᾶσιν τοῖς βασιλεῦσιν τῶν Χετταίων καὶ βασιλεῦσιν Συρίας ἐν χερσὶν αὐτῶν ἔφερον 13 So from the hill-sanctuary at Gabaon, from the entrance of that tabernacle which bears witness of the covenant, Solomon returned to Jerusalem. There he reigned over Israel, 14 and mustered a great force of chariots and of horsemen; a thousand and four hundred chariots, and horsemen twelve thousand; some of these were kept in towns set apart for stabling them, others in Jerusalem at the king’s side. 15 Silver he made as common in Jerusalem as stone, and cedars as plentiful as the sycamores that grow in the valleys. 16 And horses were brought to him from Egypt and from Coa, where his agents went to buy them for a fixed sum; 17 six hundred silver pieces for a chariot, and for a horse a hundred and fifty; the kingdoms of the Hethites, too, and the kings of Syria sold him horses at the same price.[2] 13 Venit ergo Salomon ab excelso Gabaon in Jerusalem coram tabernaculo fœderis, et regnavit super Israël. 14 Congregavitque sibi currus et equites, et facti sunt ei mille quadringenti currus, et duodecim millia equitum: et fecit eos esse in urbibus quadrigarum, et cum rege in Jerusalem. 15 Præbuitque rex argentum et aurum in Jerusalem quasi lapides, et cedros quasi sycomoros quæ nascuntur in campestribus multitudine magna. 16 Adducebantur autem ei equi de Ægypto et de Coa a negotiatoribus regis, qui ibant et emebant pretio, 17 quadrigam equorum sexcentis argenteis, et equum centum quinquaginta: similiter de universis regnis Hethæorum, et a regibus Syriæ emptio celebrabatur.
