1 Kings 3:25-27 International Children’s Bible (ICB)

25 he said, “Cut the living baby into two pieces. Give each woman half of the baby.”

26 The real mother of the living child was full of love for her son. She said to the king, “Please, my master, don’t kill him! Give the baby to her!”

But the other woman said, “Neither of us will have him. Cut him into two pieces!”

27 Then King Solomon said, “Give the baby to the first woman. Don’t kill him. She is the real mother.”

25 He then gave an order: “Cut the living child in two and give half to one and half to the other.”
