King Solomon was the third king over Israel, the second son of David and Bathsheba, who reigned some 40 years (970–930 B.C.). His alternative name was Jedidiah, “beloved of the Lord.” One of Solomon’s earliest recorded acts as king was to go to the high place at Gibeon and sacrifice 1000 burnt offerings. On the following night, the Lord appeared to the king in a dream, asking as to his fondest wish. Solomon asked for wisdom to judge Israel and God was pleased with the request (1 Kings 3). Israel’s king was given his wish, along with the gifts of long life, riches, and fame. In time Israel held Solomon in high esteem for the wisdom God gave him. Elwell, W. A., & Beitzel, B. J. (1988).
