King Solomon ruled over Israel,
2
and these were his officials: Azariah son of Zadok, priest;

6
Ahishar, in charge of the palace; and Adoniram son of Abda, in charge of forced labor.
7
Solomon had 12 deputies for all Israel. They provided food for the king and his household; each one made provision for one month out of the year.
8
These were their names: Ben-hur, in the hill country of Ephraim;
9
Ben-deker, in Makaz, Shaalbim, Beth-shemesh, and Elon-beth-hanan;
10
Ben-hesed, in Arubboth (he had Socoh and the whole land of Hepher);
11
Ben-abinadab, in all Naphath-dor (Taphath daughter of Solomon was his wife);
12
Baana son of Ahilud, in Taanach, Megiddo, and all Beth-shean which is beside Zarethan below Jezreel, from Beth-shean to Abel-meholah, as far as the other side of Jokmeam;
13
Ben-geber, in Ramoth-gilead (he had the villages of Jair son of Manasseh, which are in Gilead, and he had the region of Argob, which is in Bashan, 60 great cities with walls and bronze bars);
14
Ahinadab son of Iddo, [in] Mahanaim;

18
Shimei son of Ela, in Benjamin;
19
Geber son of Uri, in the land of Gilead, the country of Sihon king of the Amorites and of Og king of Bashan. There was one deputy in the land of Judah.

Judah and Israel were as numerous as the sand by the sea; [they were] eating, drinking, and rejoicing.

Solomon ruled over all the kingdoms from the Euphrates River to the land of the Philistines and as far as the border of Egypt. They offered tribute and served Solomon all the days of his life.

23
10 fattened oxen, 20 range oxen, and 100 sheep, besides deer, gazelles, roebucks, and pen-fed poultry,
24
for he had dominion over everything west of the Euphrates from Tiphsah to Gaza and over all the kings west of the Euphrates. He had peace on all his surrounding borders.

Throughout Solomon's [reign], Judah and Israel lived in safety from Dan to Beer-sheba, each man under his own vine and his own fig tree.
26
Solomon had 40,000 stalls of horses for his chariots, and 12,000 horsemen.
27
Each of those deputies for a month in turn provided food for King Solomon and for everyone who came to King Solomon's table. They neglected nothing.
