I Kings 10 (kjv)


And when the queenH4436 of ShebaH7614 heardH8085 of the fameH8088 of SolomonH8010 concerning the nameH8034 of the LORDH3068, she cameH935 to proveH5254 him with hard questionsH2420.2And she cameH935 to JerusalemH3389 with a veryH3966 greatH3515 trainH2428, with camelsH1581 that bareH5375 spicesH1314, and veryH3966 muchH7227 goldH2091, and preciousH3368 stonesH68: and when she was comeH935 to SolomonH8010, she communedH1696 with him of all that was in her heartH3824.3And SolomonH8010 toldH5046 her all her questionsH1697: there was not any thingH1697 hidH5956 from the kingH4428, which he toldH5046 her not.4And when the queenH4436 of ShebaH7614 had seenH7200 all Solomon'sH8010 wisdomH2451, and the houseH1004 that he had builtH1129,5And the meatH3978 of his tableH7979, and the sittingH4186 of his servantsH5650, and the attendanceH4612 of his ministersH8334, and their apparelH4403, and his cupbearersH8248, and his ascentH5930 by which he went upH5927 unto the houseH1004 of the LORDH3068; there was no more spiritH7307 in her.6And she saidH559 to the kingH4428, It was a trueH571 reportH1697 that I heardH8085 in mine own landH776 of thy actsH1697 and of thy wisdomH2451.7Howbeit I believedH539 not the wordsH1697, until I cameH935, and mine eyesH5869 had seenH7200 it: and, behold, the halfH2677 was not toldH5046 me: thy wisdomH2451 and prosperityH2896 exceedethH3254 the fameH8052 which I heardH8085.8HappyH835 are thy menH582, happyH835 are these thy servantsH5650, which standH5975 continuallyH8548 beforeH6440 thee, and that hearH8085 thy wisdomH2451.9BlessedH1288 be the LORDH3068 thy GodH430, which delightedH2654 in thee, to setH5414 thee on the throneH3678 of IsraelH3478: because the LORDH3068 lovedH160 IsraelH3478 for everH5769, therefore madeH7760 he thee kingH4428, to doH6213 judgmentH4941 and justiceH6666.10And she gaveH5414 the kingH4428 an hundredH3967 and twentyH6242 talentsH3603 of goldH2091, and of spicesH1314 veryH3966 great storeH7235, and preciousH3368 stonesH68: there cameH935 no more suchH1931 abundanceH7230 of spicesH1314 as these which the queenH4436 of ShebaH7614 gaveH5414 to kingH4428 SolomonH8010.11And the navyH590 also of HiramH2438, that broughtH5375 goldH2091 from OphirH211, brought inH935 from OphirH211 greatH3966 plentyH7235 of almugH484 treesH6086, and preciousH3368 stonesH68.12And the kingH4428 madeH6213 of the almugH484 treesH6086 pillarsH4552 for the houseH1004 of the LORDH3068, and for the king'sH4428 houseH1004, harpsH3658 also and psalteriesH5035 for singersH7891: there cameH935 no such almugH484 treesH6086, nor were seenH7200 unto this dayH3117.13And kingH4428 SolomonH8010 gaveH5414 unto the queenH4436 of ShebaH7614 all her desireH2656, whatsoever she askedH7592, beside that which SolomonH8010 gaveH5414 her of his royalH4428 bountyH3027. So she turnedH6437 and wentH3212 to her own countryH776, she and her servantsH5650.

14Now the weightH4948 of goldH2091 that cameH935 to SolomonH8010 in oneH259 yearH8141 was sixH8337 hundredH3967 threescoreH8346 and sixH8337 talentsH3603 of goldH2091,15Beside that he had of the merchantmenH582 H8446, and of the traffickH4536 of the spice merchantsH7402, and of all the kingsH4428 of ArabiaH6153, and of the governorsH6346 of the countryH776.

16And kingH4428 SolomonH8010 madeH6213 two hundredH3967 targetsH6793 of beatenH7820 goldH2091: sixH8337 hundredH3967 shekels of goldH2091 wentH5927 to oneH259 targetH6793.17And he made threeH7969 hundredH3967 shieldsH4043 of beatenH7820 goldH2091; threeH7969 poundH4488 of goldH2091 wentH5927 to oneH259 shieldH4043: and the kingH4428 putH5414 them in the houseH1004 of the forestH3293 of LebanonH3844.

18Moreover the kingH4428 madeH6213 a greatH1419 throneH3678 of ivoryH8127, and overlaidH6823 it with the bestH6338 goldH2091.19The throneH3678 had sixH8337 stepsH4609, and the topH7218 of the throneH3678 was roundH5696 behindH310: and there were staysH3027 on either side on the placeH4725 of the seatH7675, and twoH8147 lionsH738 stoodH5975 besideH681 the staysH3027.20And twelveH8147 H6240 lionsH738 stoodH5975 there on the one side and on the other upon the sixH8337 stepsH4609: there was not the likeH3651 madeH6213 in any kingdomH4467.

21And all kingH4428 Solomon'sH8010 drinkingH4945 vesselsH3627 were of goldH2091, and all the vesselsH3627 of the houseH1004 of the forestH3293 of LebanonH3844 were of pureH5462 goldH2091; none were of silverH3701: it was nothingH3972 accountedH2803 of in the daysH3117 of SolomonH8010.22For the kingH4428 had at seaH3220 a navyH590 of TharshishH8659 with the navyH590 of HiramH2438: onceH259 in threeH7969 yearsH8141 cameH935 the navyH590 of TharshishH8659, bringingH5375 goldH2091, and silverH3701, ivoryH8143, and apesH6971, and peacocksH8500.23So kingH4428 SolomonH8010 exceededH1431 all the kingsH4428 of the earthH776 for richesH6239 and for wisdomH2451.

24And all the earthH776 soughtH1245 toH6440 SolomonH8010, to hearH8085 his wisdomH2451, which GodH430 had putH5414 in his heartH3820.25And they broughtH935 every manH376 his presentH4503, vesselsH3627 of silverH3701, and vesselsH3627 of goldH2091, and garmentsH8008, and armourH5402, and spicesH1314, horsesH5483, and mulesH6505, a rateH1697 yearH8141 by yearH8141.

26And SolomonH8010 gathered togetherH622 chariotsH7393 and horsemenH6571: and he had a thousandH505 and fourH702 hundredH3967 chariotsH7393, and twelveH8147 H6240 thousandH505 horsemenH6571, whom he bestowedH5148 in the citiesH5892 for chariotsH7393, and with the kingH4428 at JerusalemH3389.27And the kingH4428 madeH5414 silverH3701 to be in JerusalemH3389 as stonesH68, and cedarsH730 madeH5414 he to be as the sycomore treesH8256 that are in the valeH8219, for abundanceH7230.

28And SolomonH8010 had horsesH5483 broughtH4161 out of EgyptH4714, and linen yarnH4723: the king'sH4428 merchantsH5503 receivedH3947 the linen yarnH4723 at a priceH4242.29And a chariotH4818 came upH5927 and went outH3318 of EgyptH4714 for sixH8337 hundredH3967 shekels of silverH3701, and an horseH5483 for an hundredH3967 and fiftyH2572: and so for all the kingsH4428 of the HittitesH2850, and for the kingsH4428 of SyriaH758, did they bring them outH3318 by their meansH3027.
