Solomon Asks God for Wisdom
1 Kings 3: 5 - 12
Solomon, the son of David and Bathsheba, built the first temple in Jerusalem.
Solomon loved the Lord, making sacrifices in many sacred places.
Gibeon was one of the Levitical cities, a proper place for a priest to dwell, in the mountains north of Jerusalem. Solomon often worshiped there before he built the Temple in Jerusalem.
