talents and of brass eighteen thousand talents and one hundred thousand

are happy over what you have done).
29:14 But who am I and what is my people, that we should be able to

here, to offer willingly unto you.

this for ever in the imagination of the thoughts of the heart of thy people,
and prepare their heart unto thee. And give unto Solomon my
son a perfect heart, to keep thy commandments, thy testimonies and your
statutes and to do all these things and to build the
palace, for the which I have made provision.

gladness. And they made Solomon the son of David
king the second time and anointed him unto the LORD to be the chief governor

full of days, riches, and honour and Solomon
his son reigned in his stead.
