1 Kings 10 New Living Translation (NLT)
Visit of the Queen of Sheba
10 When the queen of Sheba heard of Solomon’s fame, which brought honor to the name of the Lord,[a] she came to test him with hard questions. 2 She arrived in Jerusalem with a large group of attendants and a great caravan of camels loaded with spices, large quantities of gold, and precious jewels. When she met with Solomon, she talked with him about everything she had on her mind. 3 Solomon had answers for all her questions; nothing was too hard for the king to explain to her. 4 When the queen of Sheba realized how very wise Solomon was, and when she saw the palace he had built, 5 she was overwhelmed. She was also amazed at the food on his tables, the organization of his officials and their splendid clothing, the cup-bearers, and the burnt offerings Solomon made at the Temple of the Lord.

6 She exclaimed to the king, “Everything I heard in my country about your achievements[b] and wisdom is true! 7 I didn’t believe what was said until I arrived here and saw it with my own eyes. In fact, I had not heard the half of it! Your wisdom and prosperity are far beyond what I was told. 8 How happy your people[c] must be! What a privilege for your officials to stand here day after day, listening to your wisdom! 9 Praise the Lord your God, who delights in you and has placed you on the throne of Israel. Because of the Lord’s eternal love for Israel, he has made you king so you can rule with justice and righteousness.”

10 Then she gave the king a gift of 9,000 pounds[d] of gold, great quantities of spices, and precious jewels. Never again were so many spices brought in as those the queen of Sheba gave to King Solomon.

11 (In addition, Hiram’s ships brought gold from Ophir, and they also brought rich cargoes of red sandalwood[e] and precious jewels. 12 The king used the sandalwood to make railings for the Temple of the Lord and the royal palace, and to construct lyres and harps for the musicians. Never before or since has there been such a supply of sandalwood.)

13 King Solomon gave the queen of Sheba whatever she asked for, besides all the customary gifts he had so generously given. Then she and all her attendants returned to their own land.

Solomon’s Wealth and Splendor
14 Each year Solomon received about 25 tons[f] of gold. 15 This did not include the additional revenue he received from merchants and traders, all the kings of Arabia, and the governors of the land.

16 King Solomon made 200 large shields of hammered gold, each weighing more than fifteen pounds.[g] 17 He also made 300 smaller shields of hammered gold, each weighing nearly four pounds.[h] The king placed these shields in the Palace of the Forest of Lebanon.

18 Then the king made a huge throne, decorated with ivory and overlaid with fine gold. 19 The throne had six steps and a rounded back. There were armrests on both sides of the seat, and the figure of a lion stood on each side of the throne. 20 There were also twelve other lions, one standing on each end of the six steps. No other throne in all the world could be compared with it!

21 All of King Solomon’s drinking cups were solid gold, as were all the utensils in the Palace of the Forest of Lebanon. They were not made of silver, for silver was considered worthless in Solomon’s day!

22 The king had a fleet of trading ships of Tarshish that sailed with Hiram’s fleet. Once every three years the ships returned, loaded with gold, silver, ivory, apes, and peacocks.[i]

23 So King Solomon became richer and wiser than any other king on earth. 24 People from every nation came to consult him and to hear the wisdom God had given him. 25 Year after year everyone who visited brought him gifts of silver and gold, clothing, weapons, spices, horses, and mules.

  1. Got couple comments I want to share. First in relation to the 666 number being mentioned. This part of the book of the Kings 1 has already mentioned how no “Iron tool” was heard during the construction of the Temple (At least when they were at that stage of building.) Now we see 666 mentioned in regards to the Gold.

    Iron in the prophesies of Daniel represents the Roman Empire . 666 represents the beast nation. No words are redundant . Especially in this book with Solomon’s prophetic representation of Christ and the truth. Solomon had false teachings(Iron) by listening to his wives beliefs as well as so much money that he needed nothing. Anyone would fail with these things. No doubt he started to see himself as something much more than what the Father taught Him. I personally think(Solomon’s reign in whole) could represent how Lucifer failed and turned away from his Creator in a small way. Just as it was no surprise to the Father when Lucifer rebelled the same can be said of Solomon. When we have so much easy to get side tracked and lazy. Why the most wise people are those who had to struggle for what they have. Solomon seen this at certain stages of his life

    The second is Queen Sheba is thought to be from the Philippines’s Islands and their is some history to prove this. Solomon had her and her people, who were all the best Sailors of their day sail across to the America’s. This took 3 years in full. Interesting the Queen’s linage if this is correct come from” Eber” and they are from the Hebrew linage. When the Tribes went into captivity the trade got cut off stranding these traders far from their lands. This would make the native aboriginal peoples of the America’s of the linage of Eber and also of the linage of the Hebrew peoples!!!! Put the two linage’s images together and the family resemblance is awesomely hard to deny wow!!! Interesting that Brasil in Hebrew means Iron . Solomon named this place after the very ore he was having brought to him. Wow again !!! Solomon’s Empire really did cross the Entire world at one time..

    Loving this Paul. Keep’er coming. Good preparing .

    You not start for me until 12 pm. for the Fellowship but I be watching from NS. See you then. Shabbat Shalom Paul to you and yours!!!

  2. Why are most Christians so against following YAH’S Law? No one will listen to me, even when I have Scripture to back it up from Old and New Testament, in fact they generally get mad at me. I truly do not understand, I am not trying to be prideful, but I thought they didn’t follow out of ignorance, but now I think it is because of another reason. It’s important for the body of Christ to be strong in these wicked days and YAH’S Law is what seperates us from the world; we need to be obeying the Law.

  3. Hm so the anti Christ have everything to do with Salomon , will build the New Salomon temple . His ways of financial , The numbers 666 . Prince wolf Rockefeller just following the scriptures to bring events on Earth
