011:004:013
The son of Geber,
in Ramothgilead;
to him pertained the towns of Jair the son of Manasseh,

Judah and Israel were many,
as the sand which is by the sea in multitude,
eating and drinking,
and making merry.


011:004:021

and unto the border of Egypt:
they brought presents,
and served Solomon all the days of his life.


011:004:022
And Solomon's provision for one day was thirty measures of fine flour,
and threescore measures of meal,


011:004:023
Ten fat oxen,
and twenty oxen out of the pastures,
and an hundred sheep,
beside harts,
and roebucks,
and fallowdeer,
and fatted fowl.


011:004:024
For he had dominion over all the region on this side the river,
from Tiphsah even to Azzah,
over all the kings on this side the river:
and he had peace on all sides round about him.


011:004:025
And Judah and Israel dwelt safely,
every man under his vine and under his fig tree,
from Dan even to Beersheba,
all the days of Solomon.

and twelve thousand horsemen.


011:004:027

and for all that came unto king Solomon's table,
every man in his month:
they lacked nothing.

every man according to his charge.

and largeness of heart,
even as the sand that is on the sea shore.


011:004:030
And Solomon's wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the children of the east country,
and all the wisdom of Egypt.


011:004:031
For he was wiser than all men;
than Ethan the Ezrahite,
and Heman,
and Chalcol,
and Darda,
the sons of Mahol:
and his fame was in all nations round about.


011:004:032
And he spake three thousand proverbs:
and his songs were a thousand and five.


011:004:033
And he spake of trees,
from the cedar tree that is in Lebanon even unto the hyssop that springeth out of the wall:
he spake also of beasts,
and of fowl,
and of creeping things,
and of fishes.


011:004:034
And there came of all people to hear the wisdom of Solomon,
from all kings of the earth,
which had heard of his wisdom.
