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.

It is also a book found in some Latin Bibles as a shorter variant of this prayer at the end of the Book of Sirach. Where it occurs, it is often framed as the last chapter of Sirach or sometimes as a separate book immediately following it.
