22 And Solomon fstood before the altar of the Lord in the presence of all the congregation of Israel, and gspread forth his hands toward heaven: 23 And he said,

hLord God of Israel, iThere is no God like thee, in heaven above, or on earth beneath, kwho keepest covenant and mercy with thy servants that lwalk before thee with all their heart: 24 Who hast kept with thy servant David my father that thou promisedst him: thou spakest also with thy mouth, and hast fulfilled it with thine hand, as it is this day. 25 Therefore now, Lord God of Israel, keep with thy servant David my father that thou promisedst him, saying, mThere shall not fail thee a man in my sight to sit on the throne of Israel; so that thy children take heed to their way, that they walk before me as thou hast walked before me. 26 nAnd now, O God of Israel, let thy word, I pray thee, be verified, which thou spakest unto thy servant David my father.
