David’s son Solomon became king after David.
When he was made king, God told Solomon that he could have a gift – anything he wanted. Solomon thought for a while, then he asked God for the wisdom to be a good king.
God was very pleased with Solomon. “Because you asked for wisdom so that you could be a good king for My people,” God said, “I will give you wisdom and I will also give you the things you didn’t ask for.”
So God made Solomon wise, and He also made him very rich, and He gave Solomon many people to love him.
People heard how wise Solomon was, and came from all over the world to ask him questions. They brought him lots of presents.
Solomon built a beautiful house for God, and he used many of the presents to make the house more beautiful.
