Solomon is King David's son and becomes king at a very young age. In response to God's invitation to, "ask me for whatever you want," Solomon requests wisdom and knowledge to help him govern the people. God is so pleased with Solomon's answer that he gives him wisdom beyond measure as well as riches and honor. Following King David's wishes, King Solomon builds a great temple to honor God.
