1 Kings 10:6-9
10:6 She said to the king, “The report I heard in my own country about your wise sayings and insight 1 was true!
10:7 I did not believe these things until I came and saw them with my own eyes. Indeed, I didn’t hear even half the story! 2 Your wisdom and wealth 3 surpass what was reported to me.
10:8 Your attendants, who stand before you at all times and hear your wise sayings, are truly happy! 4
10:9 May the Lord your God be praised because he favored 5 you by placing you on the throne of Israel! Because of the Lord’s eternal love for Israel, he made you king so you could make just and right decisions.” 6
