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.
