1 Kings 10 ©
The queen of Sheba cometh to see Solomon. Her admiration of his wisdom and magnificence. Her presents to him. Solomon's yearly revenue in gold. His golden targets and shields. His throne of ivory. His rich vessels. Strangers bring him presents out of respect to his wisdom. His chariots and horsemen. The plenty of silver and cedars in his time. Horses, chariots, and linen yarn, brought out of Egypt.
And gthe *meat of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the 2attendance of his ministers, and their *apparel, and his 3cupbearers, and his hascent by which he went up unto the house of the LORD; there was no more spirit in her.
And she isaid to the king, It was a true 4report that I heard in mine own land of thy 5acts and of thy wisdom.
Blessed lbe the LORD thy God, which delighted in thee, to set thee on the throne of Israel: mbecause the LORD loved Israel for ever, therefore nmade he thee king, oto do judgment and justice.
And the king made of the *almug trees 8pillars for the house of the LORD, and for the king's house, harps also and psalteries for singers: there came no such almug trees, nor were seen unto this day.
And king Solomon gave unto the queen of Sheba all sher desire, whatsoever she asked, beside that which Solomon gave her 9of his royal bounty. So tshe turned and went to her own country, she and her servants.
¶Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred threescore and six talents of gold,
The throne had six steps, and the top of the throne was 11round behind: and there were 12stays on either side on the place of the seat, and two lions stood beside the stays.
And twelve lions stood there on the one side and on the other upon the six steps: there was not 13the like made in any kingdom.
¶And aall king Solomon's drinking vessels were of gold, and all the vessels of the house of the forest of Lebanon were of pure gold; 14none were of silver: it was nothing accounted of in the days of Solomon.
