2 Chronicles 9:1-30
1. And when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon, she came to prove Solomon with hard questions at Jerusalem, with a very great train, and camels that bare spices, and gold in abundance, and precious stones: and when she was come to Solomon, she communed with him of all that was in her heart.
2. And Solomon told her all her questions; and there was not anything hid from Solomon which he told her not.
3. And when the queen of Sheba had seen the wisdom of Solomon, and the house that he had built,
4. and the food of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the attendance of his ministers, and their apparel, his cupbearers also, and their apparel, and his ascent by which he went up unto the house of Jehovah; there was no more spirit in her.
5. And she said to the king, It was a true report that I heard in mine own land of thine acts, and of thy wisdom.
6. Howbeit I believed not their words, until I came, and mine eyes had seen it; and, behold, the half of the greatness of thy wisdom was not told me: thou exceedest the fame that I heard.
7. Happy are thy men, and happy are these thy servants, that stand continually before thee, and hear thy wisdom.
8. Blessed be Jehovah thy God, who delighted in thee, to set thee on his throne, to be king for Jehovah thy God: because thy God loved Israel, to establish them for ever, therefore made he thee king over them, to do justice and righteousness.
9. And she gave the king a hundred and twenty talents of gold, and spices in great abundance, and precious stones: neither was there any such spice as the queen of Sheba gave to king Solomon.
10. And the servants also of Huram, and the servants of Solomon, that brought gold from Ophir, brought algum-trees and precious stones.
11. And the king made of the algum-trees terraces for the house of Jehovah, and for the kings house, and harps and psalteries for the singers: and there were none such seen before in the land of Judah.
12. And king Solomon gave to the queen of Sheba all her desire, whatsoever she asked, besides that which she had brought unto the king. So she turned, and went to her own land, she and her servants.
13. Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred and threescore and six talents of gold,
14. besides that which the traders and merchants brought: and all the kings of Arabia and the governors of the country brought gold and silver to Solomon.
15. And king Solomon made two hundred bucklers of beaten gold; six hundred shekels of beaten gold went to one buckler.
16. And he made three hundred shields of beaten gold; three hundred shekels of gold went to one shield: and the king put them in the house of the forest of Lebanon.
17. Moreover the king made a great throne of ivory, and overlaid it with pure gold.
18. nd there were six steps to the throne, with a footstool of gold, which were fastened to the throne, and stays on either side by the place of the seat, and two lions standing beside the stays.
19. And twelve lions stood there on the one side and on the other upon the six steps: there was not the like made in any kingdom.
20. And all king Solomons drinking vessels were of gold, and all the vessels of the house of the forest of Lebanon were of pure gold: silver was nothing accounted of in the days of Solomon.
21. For the king had ships that went to Tarshish with the servants of Huram; once every three years came the ships of Tarshish, bringing gold, and silver, ivory, and apes, and peacocks.
22. So king Solomon exceeded all the kings of the earth in riches and wisdom.
23. And all the kings of the earth sought the presence of Solomon, to hear his wisdom, which God had put in his heart.
24. And they brought every man his tribute, vessels of silver, and vessels of gold, and raiment, armor, and spices, horses, and mules, a rate year by year.
25. And Solomon had four thousand stalls for horses and chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen, that he bestowed in the chariot cities, and with the king at Jerusalem.
26. And he ruled over all the kings from the River even unto the land of the Philistines, and to the border of Egypt.
27. And the king made silver to be in Jerusalem as stones, and cedars made he to be as the sycomore-trees that are in the lowland, for abundance.
28. And they brought horses for Solomon out of Egypt, and out of all lands.
29. Now the rest of the acts of Solomon, first and last, are they not written in the history of Nathan the prophet, and in the prophecy of Ahijah the Shilonite, and in the visions of Iddo the seer concerning Jeroboam the son of Nebat?
30. And Solomon reigned in Jerusalem over all Israel forty years.

2 Chronicles 10:1-19
1. And Rehoboam went to Shechem; for all Israel were come to Shechem to make him king.
2. And it came to pass, when Jeroboam the son of Nebat heard of it, (for he was in Egypt, whither he had fled from the presence of king Solomon,) that Jeroboam returned out of Egypt.
3. And they sent and called him; and Jeroboam and all Israel came, and they spake to Rehoboam, saying,
4. Thy father made our yoke grievous: now therefore make thou the grievous service of thy father, and his heavy yoke which he put upon us, lighter, and we will serve thee.
5. And he said unto them, Come again unto me after three days. And the people departed.
6. And king Rehoboam took counsel with the old men, that had stood before Solomon his father while he yet lived, saying, What counsel give ye me to return answer to this people?
7. And they spake unto him, saying, If thou be kind to this people, and please them, and speak good words to them, then they will be thy servants for ever.
8. But he forsook the counsel of the old men which they had given him, and took counsel with the young men that were grown up with him, that stood before him.
9. And he said unto them, What counsel give ye, that we may return answer to this people, who have spoken to me, saying, Make the yoke that thy father did put upon us lighter?
10. And the young men that were grown up with him spake unto him, saying, Thus shalt thou say unto the people that spake unto thee, saying, Thy father made our yoke heavy, but make thou it lighter unto us; thus shalt thou say unto them, My little finger is thicker than my fathers loins.
11. And now whereas my father did lade you with a heavy yoke, I will add to your yoke: my father chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions.
12. So Jeroboam and all the people came to Rehoboam the third day, as the king bade, saying, Come to me again the third day.
13. And the king answered them roughly; and king Rehoboam forsook the counsel of the old men,
14. and spake to them after the counsel of the young men, saying, My father made your yoke heavy, but I will add thereto: my father chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions.
15. So the king hearkened not unto the people; for it was brought about of God, that Jehovah might establish his word, which he spake by Ahijah the Shilonite to Jeroboam the son of Nebat.
16. And when all Israel saw that the king hearkened not unto them, the people answered the king, saying, What portion have we in David? neither have we inheritance in the son of Jesse: every man to your tents, O Israel: now see to thine own house, David. So all Israel departed unto their tents.
17. But as for the children of Israel that dwelt in the cities of Judah, Rehoboam reigned over them.
18. Then king Rehoboam sent Hadoram, who was over the men subject to taskwork; and the children of Israel stoned him to death with stones. And king Rehoboam made speed to get him up to his chariot, to flee to Jerusalem.
19. So Israel rebelled against the house of David unto this day.

Psalms 80:7-13
7. Turn us again, O God of hosts; And cause thy face to shine, and we shall be saved.
8. Thou broughtest a vine out of Egypt: Thou didst drive out the nations, and plantedst it.
9. Thou preparedst room before it, And it took deep root, and filled the land.
10. The mountains were covered with the shadow of it, And the boughs thereof were like cedars of God.
11. It sent out its branches unto the sea, And its shoots unto the River.
12. Why hast thou broken down its walls, So that all they that pass by the way do pluck it?
13. The boar out of the wood doth ravage it, And the wild beasts of the field feed on it.

Proverbs 20:16-18
16. Take his garment that is surety for a stranger; And hold him in pledge that is surety for foreigners.
17. Bread of falsehood is sweet to a man; But afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.
18. Every purpose is established by counsel; And by wise guidance make thou war.

Acts 14:1-28
1. And it came to pass in Iconium that they entered together into the synagogue of the Jews, and so spake that a great multitude both of Jews and of Greeks believed.
2. But the Jews that were disobedient stirred up the souls of the Gentiles, and made them evil affected against the brethren.
3. Long time therefore they tarried there speaking boldly in the Lord, who bare witness unto the word of his grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands.
4. But the multitude of the city was divided; and part held with the Jews, and part with the apostles.
5. And when there was made an onset both of the Gentiles and of the Jews with their rulers, to treat them shamefully and to stone them,
6. they became aware of it, and fled unto the cities of Lycaonia, Lystra and Derbe, and the region round about:
7. and there they preached the gospel.
8. And at Lystra there sat a certain man, impotent in his feet, a cripple from his mothers womb, who never had walked.
9. The same heard Paul speaking, who, fastening eyes upon him, and seeing that he had faith to be made whole,
10. said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped up and walked.
11. And when the multitude saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voice, saying in the speech of Lycaonia, The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men.
12. And they called Barnabas, Jupiter; and Paul, Mercury, because he was the chief speaker.
13. And the priest of Jupiter whose temple was before the city, brought oxen and garlands unto the gates, and would have done sacrifice with the multitudes.
14. But when the apostles, Barnabas and Paul, heard of it, they rent their garments, and sprang forth among the multitude, crying out
15. and saying, Sirs, why do ye these things? We also are men of like passions with you, and bring you good tidings, that ye should turn from these vain things unto a living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and all that in them is:
16. who in the generations gone by suffered all the nations to walk in their own ways.
17. And yet He left not himself without witness, in that he did good and gave you from heaven rains and fruitful seasons, filling your hearts with food and gladness.
18. And with these sayings scarce restrained they the multitudes from doing sacrifice unto them.
19. But there came Jews thither from Antioch and Iconium: and having persuaded the multitudes, they stoned Paul, and dragged him out of the city, supposing that he was dead.
20. But as the disciples stood round about him, he rose up, and entered into the city: and on the morrow he went forth with Barnabas to Derbe.
21. And when they had preached the gospel to that city, and had made many disciples, they returned to Lystra, and to Iconium, and to Antioch,
22. confirming the souls of the disciples, exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that through many tribulations we must enter into the kingdom of God.
23. And when they had appointed for them elders in every church, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord, on whom they had believed.
24. And they passed through Pisidia, and came to Pamphylia.
25. And when they had spoken the word in Perga, they went down to Attalia;
26. and thence they sailed to Antioch, from whence they had been committed to the grace of God for the work which they had fulfilled.
27. And when they were come, and had gathered the church together, they rehearsed all things that God had done with them, and that he had opened a door of faith unto the Gentiles.
28. And they tarried no little time with the disciples.
