As is well known, the God of the Jews, Jehovah, has quite often made a covenant with his people. And thus he also appeared before Solomon at Gabaon-Gibeon, the ancient Jewish place of sacrifices and the abode of the Ark of the Covenant. He selected him to be the Kinp; of Kinp;s (2 Chron. 1: 12); wherefore Solomon built a T empIe for this God (2 Chron. 1), thereby fulfilling the latter's Command to Moses.
