And Solomon the son of David was strengthened in his kingdom,
&c.] Well settled and established on the throne of his father, after
the death of some persons, from whom he might expect trouble, see
(1 Kings 2:46)
and the Lord God was with him;
directing and instructing him,
prospering and succeeding him: the Targum is,
``the Word of the Lord was his help:''
and magnified him exceedingly; see (1 Chronicles 29:25) .
