“Now the king went to Gibeon/Givon to sacrifice there, for that was the great High Place: Shlomo offered a thousand burnt offerings on that Altar! At Givon, the LORD appeared to Shlomo (Solomon) in a dream by night; and GOD said, “Ask! What shall I give you?” And Shlomo said: “You have shown great mercy to Your servant David my father, because he walked before You in Truth, in Righteousness, and in uprightness of heart with You; You have continued this great kindness for him, and You have given him a son to sit on his throne, as it is this day! Now, O Hashem, Adonai my GOD, You have made Your servant king instead of my father David, but I am a little child; I do not know how to go out or come in. And Your servant is in the midst of Your people whom You have chosen, a great people, too numerous to be numbered or counted. Therefore give to Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people, that I may discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours?”

“The speech pleased the LORD, that Shlomo had asked this thing. Then GOD said to him: “Because you have asked this thing, and have not asked for long life for yourself, nor have asked for riches for yourself, nor have asked for the life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself understanding to discern Justice, behold, I have done according to your words; see, I have given you a wise and understanding heart, so that there has not been anyone like you before you, nor shall any like you arise after you. And I have also given you what you have not asked for: both riches and honor, so that there shall NOT be anyone like you among the kings all YOUR DAYS! So if you walk in My Ways, to keep My statutes and My commandments, as your father David walked, then I will lengthen YOUR DAYS!” I Kings 3:4-14
