Tyndale Bible

1 Kings 3

Solomon marrieth Pharaoh's daughter.

1 Kings 3:1 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And Solomon made affinity with Pharaoh king of Egypt, and took Pharaoh's daughter, and brought her into the city of David, until he had made an end of building his own house, and the house of the LORD, and the wall of Jerusalem round about.

High places being in use, Solomon sacrificeth at Gibeon.

1 Kings 3:2 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Only the people sacrificed in high places, because there was no house built unto the name of the LORD, until those days. 1 Kings 3:3 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And Solomon loved the LORD, walking in the statutes of David his father: only he sacrificed and burnt incense in high places. 1 Kings 3:4 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the king went to Gibeon to sacrifice there; for that [was] the great high place: a thousand burnt offerings did Solomon offer upon that altar.

Solomon at Gibeon, in the choice which God gave him, preferring wisdom, obtaineth wisdom, riches and honour.

1 Kings 3:5 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} In Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee. 1 Kings 3:6 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And Solomon said, Thou hast showed unto thy servant David my father great mercy, according as he walked before thee in truth, and in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart with thee; and thou hast kept for him this great kindness, that thou hast given him a son to sit on his throne, as [it is] this day. 1 Kings 3:7 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And now, O LORD my God, thou hast made thy servant king instead of David my father: and I [am but] a little child: I know not [how] to go out or come in. 1 Kings 3:8 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And thy servant [is] in the midst of thy people which thou hast chosen, a great people, that cannot be numbered nor counted for multitude. 1 Kings 3:9 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people? 1 Kings 3:10 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing. 1 Kings 3:11 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment; 1 Kings 3:12 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee. 1 Kings 3:13 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honor: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days. 1 Kings 3:14 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And if thou wilt walk in my ways, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as thy father David did walk, then I will lengthen thy days. 1 Kings 3:15 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And 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 up burnt offerings, and offered peace offerings, and made a feast to all his servants.

Solomon's judgment between the two harlots maketh him renowned.

1 Kings 3:16 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Then came there two women, [that were] harlots, unto the king, and stood before him. 1 Kings 3:17 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the one woman said, O my lord, I and this woman dwell in one house; and I was delivered of a child with her in the house. 1 Kings 3:18 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And it came to pass the third day after that I was delivered, that this woman was delivered also: and we [were] together; [there was] no stranger with us in the house, save we two in the house. 1 Kings 3:19 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And this woman's child died in the night; because she overlaid it. 1 Kings 3:20 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And she arose at midnight, and took my son from beside me, while thine handmaid slept, and laid it in her bosom, and laid her dead child in my bosom. 1 Kings 3:21 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And when I rose in the morning to give my child suck, behold, it was dead: but when I had considered it in the morning, behold, it was not my son, which I did bear. 1 Kings 3:22 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the other woman said, Nay; but the living [is] my son, and the dead [is] thy son. And this said, No; but the dead [is] thy son, and the living [is] my son. Thus they spoke before the king. 1 Kings 3:23 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Then said the king, The one saith, This [is] my son that liveth, and thy son [is] the dead: and the other saith, Nay; but thy son [is] the dead, and my son [is] the living. 1 Kings 3:24 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the king said, Bring me a sword. And they brought a sword before the king. 1 Kings 3:25 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the king said, Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one, and half to the other. 1 Kings 3:26 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Then spoke the woman whose the living child [was] unto the king, for her bowels yearned upon her son, and she said, O my lord, give her the living child, and in no wise slay it. But the other said, Let it be neither mine nor thine, [but] divide [it]. 1 Kings 3:27 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Then the king answered and said, Give her the living child, and in no wise slay it: she [is] the mother thereof. 1 Kings 3:28 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And all Israel heard of the judgment which the king had judged; and they feared the king: for they saw that the wisdom of God [was] in him, to do judgment.
