Text Commentary side-by-side

1.1–9.31 : Solomon and the temple.

The Chronicler draws most of the material concerning Solomon from 1 Kgs. chs. 3–10 , omitting the struggle for David's throne in 1 Kgs. chs. 1–2 , and thereby moving quickly to the building and dedication of the temple.

1.1–17 : Solomon's wisdom and wealth.

Solomon's dream at Gibeon (vv. 7–13 ) is abbreviated from the 1 Kgs. 3.4–15 source; an excerpt is also given (14–17) to document Solomon's wealth which God said would be given as well as wisdom (1 Kgs. 10.26–29 ).

3–4 :

Because a shrine was normally pagan, and it could appear unseemly for Solomon to have gone to a pagan shrine, v. 3 mentions the Mosaic Tent of Meeting; yet v. 4 then comments that the Ark was not in this tent, but on hand at Jerusalem! The Tent of Meeting and the Ark come together in 5.4–5 .

14–17 :

This passage on Solomon's wealth also occurs in 9.25–28 .
