Bible: 1 Kings 3:11-15

3:11 God said to him, “Because you asked for the ability to make wise judicial decisions, and not for long life, or riches, or vengeance on your enemies, 1  3:12 I 2  grant your request, 3  and give 4  you a wise and discerning mind 5  superior to that of anyone who has preceded or will succeed you. 6  3:13 Furthermore, I am giving 7  you what you did not request – riches and honor so that you will be the greatest king of your generation. 8  3:14 If you follow my instructions 9  by obeying 10  my rules and regulations, just as your father David did, 11  then I will grant you long life.” 12  3:15 Solomon then woke up and realized it was a dream. 13  He went to Jerusalem, stood before the ark of the Lord’s covenant, offered up burnt sacrifices, presented peace offerings, 14  and held a feast for all his servants.
