Prayer of Solomon

A prayer by King Solomon described in 1 Kings 8:22–52. This prayer is said to have occurred at the dedication of the temple of Solomon, which also became known as the First Temple. The wording and thinking of the prayer have much in common with the language of Deuteronomy.[1]

A shorter prayer of Solomon is also found in some Latin Bibles at the end of the Book of Sirach (Ecclesiasticus).[2] Where it occurs, it is often framed as the last chapter of Sirach or sometimes as a separate book immediately following it.
