2 Chronicles 9

And when the queen
<04436>
of Sheba
<07614>
heard
<08085> (8804)
of the fame
<08088>
of Solomon
<08010>_,
she came
<0935> (8799)
to prove
<05254> (8763)
Solomon
<08010>
with hard questions
<02420>
at Jerusalem
<03389>_,
with a very
<03966>
great
<03515>
company
<02428>_,
and camels
<01581>
that bare
<05375> (8802)
spices
<01314>_,
and gold
<02091>
in abundance
<07230>_,
and precious
<03368>
stones
<068>_:
and when she was come
<0935> (8799)
to Solomon
<08010>_,
she communed
<01696> (8762)
with him of all that was in her heart
<03824>_.
And Solomon
<08010>
told
<05046> (8686)
her all her questions
<01697>_:
and there was nothing hid
<05956> (8738)
from Solomon
<08010>
which he told
<05046> (8689)
her not.
And when the queen
<04436>
of Sheba
<07614>
had seen
<07200> (8799)
the wisdom
<02451>
of Solomon
<08010>_,
and the house
<01004>
that he had built
<01129> (8804)_,
And the meat
<03978>
of his table
<07979>_,
and the sitting
<04186>
of his servants
<05650>_,
and the attendance
<04612>
of his ministers
<08334> (8764)_,
and their apparel
<04403>_;
his cupbearers
<08248> (8688)
also, and their apparel
<04403>_;
and his ascent
<05944>
by which he went up
<05927> (8799)
into the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_;
there was no more spirit
<07307>
in her. {cupbearers: or, butlers}
And she said
<0559> (8799)
to the king
<04428>_,
[It was] a true
<0571>
report
<01697>
which I heard
<08085> (8804)
in mine own land
<0776>
of thine acts
<01697>_,
and of thy wisdom
<02451>_:
{report: Heb. word} {acts: or, sayings}
Howbeit I believed
<0539> (8689)
not their words
<01697>_,
until I came
<0935> (8804)_,
and mine eyes
<05869>
had seen
<07200> (8799)
[it]: and, behold, the one half
<02677>
of the greatness
<04768>
of thy wisdom
<02451>
was not told
<05046> (8717)
me: [for] thou exceedest
<03254> (8804)
the fame
<08052>
that I heard
<08085> (8804)_.
Happy
<0835>
[are] thy men
<0582>_,
and happy
<0835>
[are] these thy servants
<05650>_,
which stand
<05975> (8802)
continually
<08548>
before
<06440>
thee, and hear
<08085> (8802)
thy wisdom
<02451>_.
Blessed
<01288> (8803)
be the LORD
<03068>
thy God
<0430>_,
which delighted
<02654> (8804)
in thee to set
<05414> (8800)
thee on his throne
<03678>_,
[to be] king
<04428>
for the LORD
<03068>
thy God
<0430>_:
because thy God
<0430>
loved
<0160>
Israel
<03478>_,
to establish
<05975> (8687)
them for ever
<05769>_,
therefore made
<05414> (8799)
he thee king
<04428>
over them, to do
<06213> (8800)
judgment
<04941>
and justice
<06666>_.
And she gave
<05414> (8799)
the king
<04428>
an hundred
<03967>
and twenty
<06242>
talents
<03603>
of gold
<02091>_,
and of spices
<01314>
great
<03966>
abundance
<07230>_,
and precious
<03368>
stones
<068>_:
neither was there any such spice
<01314>
as the queen
<04436>
of Sheba
<07614>
gave
<05414> (8804)
king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>_.
And the servants
<05650>
also of Huram
<02361>_,
and the servants
<05650>
of Solomon
<08010>_,
which brought
<0935> (8689)
gold
<02091>
from Ophir
<0211>_,
brought
<0935> (8689)
algum
<0418>
trees
<06086>
and precious
<03368>
stones
<068>_.
{algum...: also called, almug trees}
And the king
<04428>
made
<06213> (8799)
[of] the algum
<0418>
trees
<06086>
terraces
<04546>
to the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and to the king's
<04428>
palace
<01004>_,
and harps
<03658>
and psalteries
<05035>
for singers
<07891> (8802)_:
and there were none such
<01992>
seen
<07200> (8738)
before
<06440>
in the land
<0776>
of Judah
<03063>_.
{terraces: or, stairs: Heb. highways}
And king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>
gave
<05414> (8804)
to the queen
<04436>
of Sheba
<07614>
all her desire
<02656>_,
whatsoever she asked
<07592> (8804)_,
beside [that] which she had brought
<0935> (8689)
unto the king
<04428>_.
So she turned
<02015> (8799)_,
and went away
<03212> (8799)
to her own land
<0776>_,
she and her servants
<05650>_.
Now the weight
<04948>
of gold
<02091>
that came
<0935> (8804)
to Solomon
<08010>
in one
<0259>
year
<08141>
was six
<08337>
hundred
<03967>
and threescore
<08346>
and six
<08337>
talents
<03603>
of gold
<02091>_;
Beside [that which] chapmen
<0582> <08446> (8802)
and merchants
<05503> (8802)
brought
<0935> (8688)_.
And all the kings
<04428>
of Arabia
<06152>
and governors
<06346>
of the country
<0776>
brought
<0935> (8688)
gold
<02091>
and silver
<03701>
to Solomon
<08010>_.
{governors: or, captains}
And king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>
made
<06213> (8799)
two hundred
<03967>
targets
<06793>
[of] beaten
<07820> (8803)
gold
<02091>_:
six
<08337>
hundred
<03967>
[shekels] of beaten
<07820> (8803)
gold
<02091>
went
<05927> (8686)
to one
<0259>
target
<06793>_.
And three
<07969>
hundred
<03967>
shields
<04043>
[made he of] beaten
<07820> (8803)
gold
<02091>_:
three
<07969>
hundred
<03967>
[shekels] of gold
<02091>
went
<05927> (8686)
to one
<0259>
shield
<04043>_.
And the king
<04428>
put
<05414> (8799)
them in the house
<01004>
of the forest
<03293>
of Lebanon
<03844>_.
Moreover the king
<04428>
made
<06213> (8799)
a great
<01419>
throne
<03678>
of ivory
<08127>_,
and overlaid
<06823> (8762)
it with pure
<02889>
gold
<02091>_.
And [there were] six
<08337>
steps
<04609>
to the throne
<03678>_,
with a footstool
<03534>
of gold
<02091>_,
[which were] fastened
<0270> (8716)
to the throne
<03678>_,
and stays
<03027>
on each side of the sitting
<03427> (8800)
place
<04725>_,
and two
<08147>
lions
<0738>
standing
<05975> (8802)
by
<0681>
the stays
<03027>_:
{stays: Heb. hands}
And twelve
<08147> <06240>
lions
<0738>
stood
<05975> (8802)
there on the one side and on the other upon the six
<08337>
steps
<04609>_.
There was not the like made
<06213> (8738)
in any kingdom
<04467>_.
And all the drinking
<04945>
vessels
<03627>
of king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>
[were of] gold
<02091>_,
and all the vessels
<03627>
of the house
<01004>
of the forest
<03293>
of Lebanon
<03844>
[were of] pure
<05462> (8803)
gold
<02091>_:
none [were of] silver
<03701>_;
it was [not] any
<03972>
thing accounted
<02803> (8737)
of in the days
<03117>
of Solomon
<08010>_.
{pure: Heb. shut up} {none were of silver: or, there was no silver in them}
For the king's
<04428>
ships
<0591>
went
<01980> (8802)
to Tarshish
<08659>
with the servants
<05650>
of Huram
<02361>_:
every three
<07969>
years
<08141>
once
<0259>
came
<0935> (8799)
the ships
<0591>

<02091>_,
and silver
<03701>_,

<08143>_,
and apes
<06971>_,
and peacocks
<08500>_.
{ivory: or, elephants' teeth}
And king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>
passed
<01431> (8799)
all the kings
<04428>
of the earth
<0776>
in riches
<06239>
and wisdom
<02451>_.
And all the kings
<04428>
of the earth
<0776>
sought
<01245> (8764)
the presence
<06440>
of Solomon
<08010>_,
to hear
<08085> (8800)
his wisdom
<02451>_,
that God
<0430>
had put
<05414> (8804)
in his heart
<03820>_.
And they brought
<0935> (8688)
every man
<0376>
his present
<04503>_,
vessels
<03627>
of silver
<03701>_,

<03627>
of gold
<02091>_,
and raiment
<08008>_,
harness
<05402>_,
and spices
<01314>_,
horses
<05483>_,
and mules
<06505>_,
a rate
<01697>
year
<08141>
by year
<08141>_.
And Solomon
<08010>
had four
<0702>
thousand
<0505>
stalls
<0723>
for horses
<05483>
and chariots
<04818>_,
and twelve
<08147> <06240>
thousand
<0505>
horsemen
<06571>_;
whom he bestowed
<03240> (8686)
in the chariot
<07393>
cities
<05892>_,
and with the king
<04428>
at Jerusalem
<03389>_.
And he reigned
<04910> (8802)
over all the kings
<04428>
from the river
<05104>
even unto the land
<0776>
of the Philistines
<06430>_,
and to the border
<01366>
of Egypt
<04714>_.
{river: that is, Euphrates}
And the king
<04428>
made
<05414> (8799)
silver
<03701>
in Jerusalem
<03389>
as stones
<068>_,
and cedar trees
<0730>
made
<05414> (8804)
he as the sycomore trees
<08256>
that [are] in the low plains
<08219>
in abundance
<07230>_.
{made silver: Heb. gave silver}
And they brought
<03318> (8688)
unto Solomon
<08010>
horses
<05483>
out of Egypt
<04714>_,
and out of all lands
<0776>_.
Now the rest
<07605>
of the acts
<01697>
of Solomon
<08010>_,
first
<07223>
and last
<0314>_,
[are] they not written
<03789> (8803)
in the book
<01697>
of Nathan
<05416>
the prophet
<05030>_,
and in the prophecy
<05016>
of Ahijah
<0281>
the Shilonite
<07888>_,
and in the visions
<02378>
of Iddo
<03260>
the seer
<02374>
against Jeroboam
<03379>
the son
<01121>
of Nebat
<05028>_?
{book: Heb. words}
And Solomon
<08010>
reigned
<04427> (8799)
in Jerusalem
<03389>
over all Israel
<03478>
forty
<0705>
years
<08141>_.
And Solomon
<08010>
slept
<07901> (8799)
with his fathers
<01>_,
and he was buried
<06912> (8799)
in the city
<05892>
of David
<01732>
his father
<01>_:
and Rehoboam
<07346>
his son
<01121>
reigned
<04427> (8799)
in his stead.
