Context
NETBible

The queen of the South 1  will rise up at the judgment 2  with the people 3  of this generation and condemn them, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon – and now, 4  something greater 5  than Solomon is here!

NET © Notes

sn On the queen of the South see 1 Kgs 10:1-3 and 2 Chr 9:1-12, as well as Josephus, Ant. 8.6.5-6 (8.165-175). The South most likely refers to modern southwest Arabia, possibly the eastern part of modern Yemen, although there is an ancient tradition reflected in Josephus which identifies this geo-political entity as Ethiopia.

sn For the imagery of judgment, see Luke 10:13-15 and 11:19. The warnings are coming consistently now.

tn Grk “men”; the word here (ἀνήρ, anhr) usually indicates males or husbands, but occasionally is used in a generic sense of people in general, as is the case here (cf. BDAG 79 s.v. 1, 2). The same term, translated the same way, occurs in v. 32.

tn Grk “behold.”

sn The message of Jesus was something greater than what Solomon offered. On Jesus and wisdom, see Luke 7:35; 10:21-22; 1 Cor 1:24, 30.
