INTRODUCTION. In order to secure his throne, Solomon began his reign by either

removing from office or executing his father's enemies. He chose Benaiah, one of

David's captains, to carry out his orders for the purge, then he appointed him com-

mander of the army (I Kings 2:13-46).


Early in his reign Solomon went to Gibeon, a city about six miles northwest of Jeru-

salem, to sacrifice, for at this time the tabernacle was there. As Solomon offered his

sacrifices, the Lord appeared to him in a dream and asked what He should give him.

Solomon's answer was one of complete humility.
