His twelve officers for provision.

1 Kings 4:7 And Solomon had twelue officers ouer all Israel, which prouided victuals for the king and his houshold: each man his moneth in a yeere made prouision. 1 Kings 4:8 And these are their names: the sonne of Hur in mount Ephraim, 1 Kings 4:9 The sonne of Dekar in Makaz, and in Shaalbim, and Bethshemesh, and Elon-Bethhanan. 1 Kings 4:10 The sonne of Heseb in Aruboth, [to him pertained] Sochoh, and all the land of Hepher; 1 Kings 4:11 The sonne of Abinadab in all the region of Dor, which had Taphath the daughter of Solomon to wife: 1 Kings 4:12 Baana the sonne of Ahilud, [to him pertained] Taanach and Megiddo, and all Beth-shean, which is by Zartanah beneath Iezreel, from Beth-shean to Abel-Meholah, euen vnto [the place that is] beyond Iokneam: 1 Kings 4:13 The sonne of Geber in Ramoth Gilead, to him [pertained] the townes of Iair the sonne of Manasseh, which [are] in Gilead: to him [also pertained] the region of Argob, which is in Bashan, threescore great cities, with walles, and brasen barres. 1 Kings 4:14 Ahinadab the sonne of Iddo [had] Mahanaim. 1 Kings 4:15 Ahimaaz [was] in Naphtali; he also tooke Basmath the daughter of Solomon to wife. 1 Kings 4:16 Baanah the sonne of Hushai [was] in Asher and in Aloth: 1 Kings 4:17 Iehoshaphat the sonne of Paruah in Issachar: 1 Kings 4:18 Shimei the sonne of Elah in Beniamin: 1 Kings 4:19 Geber the sonne of Uri [was] in the countrey of Gilead, [in] the countrey of Sihon king of the Amorites, and of Og king of Bashan; and hee [was] the onely officer which [was] in the land.

The peace and largeness of his kingdom.

1 Kings 4:20 Iudah and Israel [were] many, as the sand which is by the sea in multitude, eating and drinking and making merrie. 1 Kings 4:21 And Solomon reigned ouer all kingdoms from the riuer vnto the land of the Philistines, and vnto the border of Egypt: they brought presents, and serued Solomon all the dayes of his life.

His daily provision.

1 Kings 4:22 And Solomons prouision for one day, was thirtie measures of fine floure, and threescore measures of meale, 1 Kings 4:23 Ten fat oxen, and twentie oxen out of the pastures, and an hundred sheepe, beside Harts, and Roe-buckes, and fallow Deere, and fatted foule.

The peace and largeness of his kingdom.

1 Kings 4:24 For he had dominion ouer all [the region] on this side the Riuer, from Tiphsah euen to Azzah ouer all the kings on this side the Riuer: and he had peace on all sides round about him. 1 Kings 4:25 And Iudah and Israel dwelt safely, euery man vnder his Uine, and vnder his Figtree, from Dan euen to Beer-sheba, all the dayes of Solomon.

His stables.

1 Kings 4:26 And Solomon had fourtie thousand stalles of horses for his charets, and twelue thousand horsemen. 1 Kings 4:27 And those officers prouided victuall for king Solomon, and for all that came vnto king Solomons table, euery man in his moneth: they lacked nothing. 1 Kings 4:28 Barley also and straw for the horses and dromedaries, brought they vnto the place where the officers were, euery man according to his charge.

His wisdom.

1 Kings 4:29 And God gaue Solomon wisdome, and vnderstanding, exceeding much, and largenesse of heart, euen as the sand that [is] on the sea shoare. 1 Kings 4:30 And Solomons wisedome excelled the wisedome of all the children of the East countrey, and all the wisedome of Egypt. 1 Kings 4:31 For hee was wiser then all men; then Ethan the Ezrahite, and Heman, and Chalcol, and Darda the sonnes of Mahol: and his fame was in all nations round about. 1 Kings 4:32 And he spake three thousand prouerbes: and his songs were a thousand and fiue. 1 Kings 4:33 And hee spake of trees, from the Cedar tree that [is] in Lebanon, euen vnto the Hyssope that springeth out of the wall: hee spake also of beasts, and of foule, and of creeping things, and of fishes. 1 Kings 4:34 And there came of all people to heare the wisedome of Solomon, from all kings of the earth, which had heard of his wisedome.
