Message from the Monthly Flyer from March 2011
3:5-10 At Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night;
and God said, "Ask! What shall I give you?" And Solomon
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 LORD 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 Solomon had asked this thing.
