Summary of 1 Kings 3
Solomon made an alliance with the king of Egypt and married his daughter. Solomon walked in the ways of the Lord, showing his love for God. God rewarded Solomon by telling him to ask for whatever he wants. Solomon asks for discernment. God grants this unselfish request, saying there will never be anyone as wise. God gives Solomon what he did not ask for, too, which is wealth and honor. God will give him a long life if he follows Him. Solomon returned to Jerusalem and offered sacrifices.
Two prostitutes came to Solomon, asking him to make a ruling. Each woman claimed that the baby was theirs. Solomon ordered the baby cut in half and half given to each. The real mother said to give the baby to the other woman. The other woman said to kill the child. Obviously, the first woman was the real mother.
