2 Chronicles 1; Psalm 72

Second Chronicles begins with a story extremely similar to First Kings chapter 3.  Although many of the phrases are identical, the over language is not word for word as it has been in other sections.  The gist of it remains, Solomon chose wisdom rather than riches, power or long life.  Thus, YHWH granted him all of these.

That’s a pretty important story. 

Also, why isn’t Solomon a greater king than David? 

Psalm 72 seems like a coronation song for Solomon.  It even mentioned Lebanon & Sheba.
