    1 Solomon marries Pharaoh's daughter. 2 High places being in use, Solomon sacrifices at Gibeon. 5 Solomon at Gibeon, in the choice which God gave him, preferring wisdom, obtains wisdom, riches, and honor. 16 Solomon's judgment makes him renowned.

It was not right to offer sacrifices in any place but where the tabernacle and ark were; and wherever they were, whether on a high place or a plain, sacrifices might be lawfully offered, previously to building of the temple. The tabernacle was now at Gibeon, (2 Ch 3 1:3,) which was therefore called the great high place; whither we find Solomon, without censure, repaired to sacrifice. * 1Ki 22:43 Le 17:3-6; 26:30 De 12:2-5 2Ch 33:17 - was no. * 1Ki 5:3 1Ch 17:4-6; 28:3-6 Ac 7:47-49 VERSE 3 - loved. * De 6:5; 10:12; 30:6,16,20 2Sa 12:24,25 Ps 31:23 Mt 22:37 * Mr 12:29,30 Ro 8:28 1Co 8:3 Jas 12 1:12; 2:5 1Jo 4:19,20; 5:2,3 - walking.

This was apparently a very strange decision; but Solomon saw that the only way to discover the real mother was by the affection and tenderness should would necessarily shew to her offspring. The plan was tried, and succeeded; and it was a proof of his sound judgment, penetration, and acquaintance with the human heart, or rather, of his extraordinary and supernatural wisdom. See ver. 28. The two following instances are in some faint manner to be compared to Solomon's decision, inasmuch as they also work upon the human sympathies. Suetonius, in his Life of the emperor Claudian, tells us, that this emperor discovered a woman to be the real mother of a young man, whom she refused to acknowledge, by commanding her to marry him, the proofs being doubtful on both sides; for, rather than commit incest, she confessed the truth. Diodorus Siculus also informs us, that Ariopharnes, king of Thrace, being appointed to decided between three young men, each of whom professed to be the son of the deceased king of the Cimmerians, and claimed the succession, discovered the real son by ordering each to shoot an arrow into the dead body of the king: two of them did this without hesitation; but the real son of the deceased monarch refused. * Pr 25:8 VERSE 26 - her bowels. * Ge 43:30 Isa 49:15 Jer 31:20 Ho 11:8 Php 1:8; 2:1 1Jo 3:17 - yearned.
