- How did Solomon inaugurate his reign?
- How do Solomon’s request (1:10) and God’s response illustrate Matt. 6:33? In my praying, what do I ‘seek first’?
- What characterized the way in which Solomon went about the preparations for building the temple? Is my service of God comparable?
Note. 1:3. ‘Tent of Meeting’: this was the tabernacle used in the wilderness. After the Israelites entered Canaan, it was first pitched in Shiloh (Josh. 18:1 Sam. 2:14b; 3:21), then moved to Nob (1 Sam. 21:1, 6), and then to Gibeon. Later Solomon brought it to Jerusalem (2 Chr. 5:5), where it was probably stored and finally perished.
