1 Kings 10:1-13 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

10 And when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon concerning the name of the Lord, she came to test him with hard questions.

And she came to Jerusalem with a very great train, with camels that bore spices and very much gold and precious stones; and when she had come to Solomon, she communed with him about all that was in her heart.

And Solomon told her all her questions; there was not any thing hidden from the king which he told her not.

And when the queen of Sheba had seen all Solomon’s wisdom, and the house that he had built,

and the meat of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the attendance of his ministers, and their apparel, and his cupbearers, and his ascent by which he went up unto the house of the Lord, there was no more spirit in her.

And she said to the king, “It was a true report that I heard in mine own land of thy acts and of thy wisdom.

However I believed not the words until I came and mine eyes had seen it; and behold, the half was not told me. Thy wisdom and prosperity exceedeth the fame which I heard.

Happy are thy men, happy are these thy servants, who stand continually before thee and who hear thy wisdom.

Blessed be the Lord thy God, who delighted in thee, to set thee on the throne of Israel! Because the Lord loved Israel for ever, therefore made He thee king to do judgment and justice.”

10 And she gave the king a hundred and twenty talents of gold, and of spices a very great store, and precious stones; there came no more such abundance of spices as these which the queen of Sheba gave to King Solomon.

11 And the navy also of Hiram, that brought gold from Ophir, brought in from Ophir a great plenty of almug trees and precious stones.

12 And the king made of the almug trees pillars for the house of the Lord and for the king’s house, harps also and psalteries for singers. There came no more such almug trees, nor were seen unto this day.

13 And King Solomon gave unto the queen of Sheba all her desire, whatsoever she asked, besides that which Solomon gave her of his royal bounty. So she turned and went to her own country, she and her servants.
