that Yahweh appeared to Solomon the second time as he had appeared to him at Gibeon. Bible

“appeared to Solomon.” God personally appeared to Solomon on two different occasions (1 Kings 3:5; 9:2; 11:9), see commentary on 1 Kings 11:9. [For more on God appearing to people, see commentary on Acts 7:55].
