2 Chronicles 9:1

Context
Solomon Entertains a Queen

9:1 When the queen of Sheba heard about Solomon, 1  she came to challenge 2  him 3  with difficult questions. 4  She arrived in Jerusalem 5  with a great display of pomp, 6  bringing with her camels carrying spices, 7  a very large quantity of gold, and precious gems. She visited Solomon and discussed with him everything that was on her mind.

1 tn Heb “the report about Solomon.”

2 tn Or “test.”

3 tn Heb “Solomon.” The recurrence of the proper name here is redundant in terms of contemporary English style, so the pronoun has been used in the translation instead.

4 tn Or “riddles.”

6 tn Heb “with very great strength.” The Hebrew word חַיִל (khayil, “strength”) may refer here to the size of her retinue or to the great wealth she brought with her.

7 tn Or “balsam oil.”
