" Verse 1 And the Lord was not pleased with Solomon, for he made affinity with Pharaoh, King of Egyp; and took Pharaoh Daughter to wife, and brought her into the City <​house​> of David, untill he had made an end of building, his own house, and the house of the Lord and the wall of Jerusalem round about; and the Lord blessed solomon for the People<​s​> sake only. And the people sacrifised in high places, becaus there was no house built unto the name of the Lord, until those days. And because the Lord blessed Solomon as he was walking in the statutes of David his Father, he began to Love the Lord; & he sacrifised and burnt incense in high places, and he called on the name of the Lord. And the King went to Gibeon to sacrifise there, for Gibeon was in a great high place; and Solomon offered upon that alter, in Gibeon, a thousand <​burnt​> offerings. And the Lord <​God​> harkened unto Solomon, and appeared unto him by <​in a​> dream by night, and said, ask what I shall give thee. And Solomon said, thou hast shewed unto my <​thy​> Servant David my Father, great things according to my <​thy​> mercy, when he walked before thee in truth, and in righteousness and in uprghtness 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 this day. and now, O Lord my God, thou hast made thy servant King, instead of David my Father, over thy people; and I know not how to leave <​lead​> them, for to leave go out or come in before them; and thy servant am as a little child, in the mids of thy people whom thou hast chosen, a great people that cannot be nubered, nor counted for multitude
