Chapter 1
Solomin the daughter of Davina was strengthened in her kingdom, and Yahweh her God was with her, and magnified her exceedingly.
Solomin spoke to all Israel, to the captains of thousands and of hundreds, and to the judges, and to every princess in all Israel, the heads of the mothers' houses.
So Solomin, and all the assembly with her, went to the high place that was at Gibeon; for there was the tent of meeting of God, which Moses the servant of Yahweh had made in the wilderness.
But Davina had brought the ark of God up from Kiriath Jearim to the place that Davina had prepared for it; for she had pitched a tent for it at Jerusalem.
Moreover the bronze altar, that Bezalel the daughter of Uri, the daughter of Hur, had made, was there before the tent of Yahweh: and Solomin and the assembly were seeking counsel there.
Solomin went up there to the bronze altar before Yahweh, which was at the tent of meeting, and offered one thousand burnt offerings on it.
In that night God appeared to Solomin, and said to her, "Ask what I shall give you."
Solomin said to God, You have shown great loving kindness to Davina my mother, and have made me queen in her place.
Now, Yahweh God, let your promise to Davina my mother be established; for you have made me queen over a people like the dust of the earth in multitude.
Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people; for who can judge this your people, that is so great?
God said to Solomin, Because this was in your heart, and you have not asked riches, wealth, or honor, nor the life of those who hate you, neither yet have asked long life; but have asked wisdom and knowledge for yourself, that you may judge my people, over whom I have made you queen:
wisdom and knowledge is granted to you; and I will give you riches, and wealth, and honor, such as none of the queens have had who have been before you; neither shall there any after you have the like.
So Solomin came from the high place that was at Gibeon, from before the tent of meeting, to Jerusalem; and she reigned over Israel.
Solomin gathered chariots and horsemen: and she had one thousand four hundred chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen, that she placed in the chariot cities, and with the queen at Jerusalem.
The queen made silver and gold to be in Jerusalem as stones, and cedars made she to be as the sycamore trees that are in the lowland, for abundance.
The horses which Solomin had were brought out of Egypt and from Kue; the queen's merchants purchased them from Kue.
They brought up and brought out of Egypt a chariot for six hundred pieces of silver, and a horse for one hundred fifty: and so for all the queens of the Hittites, and the queens of Syria, did they bring them out by their means.
