2 Chr 9:8

9:8 establish them forever. The queen of Sheba recognized Solomon’s wise rule as God’s provision for the well-being of Israel. Solomon’s wealth and wisdom (2:13–28), like the international favor he enjoyed (v. 23), was a high point for the covenant community. The generation that returned from the distress of exile in Babylonia looked to it for inspiration and courage in their work of rebuilding.
