2 Chronicles 9

  1 H4436 And when the queen H7614 of Sheba H8085 [H8804] heard H8088 of the fame H8010 of Solomon H935 [H8799] , she came H5254 [H8763] to try H8010 Solomon H2420 with hard questions H3389 at Jerusalem H3966 , with a very H3515 great H2428 company H1581 , and camels H5375 [H8802] that bore H1314 spices H2091 , and gold H7230 in abundance H3368 , and precious H68 stones H935 [H8799] : and when she had come H8010 to Solomon H1696 [H8762] , she talked H3824 with him of all that was in her heart.
  2 H8010 And Solomon H5046 [H8686] answered H1697 her all her questions H5956 [H8738] : and there was nothing hid H8010 from Solomon H5046 [H8689] which he told her not.
  3 H4436 And when the queen H7614 of Sheba H7200 [H8799] had seen H2451 the wisdom H8010 of Solomon H1004 , and the house H1129 [H8804] that he had built,
  4 H3978 And the food H7979 of his table H4186 , and the sitting H5650 of his servants H4612 , and the attendance H8334 [H8764] of his ministers H4403 , and their apparel H8248 [H8688] ; his cupbearers H4403 also, and their apparel H5944 ; and his ascent H5927 [H8799] by which he went up H1004 into the house H3068 of the LORD H7307 ; there was no more spirit in her.
  5 H559 [H8799] And she said H4428 to the king H571 , It was a true H1697 report H8085 [H8804] which I heard H776 in my own land H1697 of thy acts H2451 , and of thy wisdom:
  6 H539 [H8689] Yet I believed H1697 not their words H935 [H8804] , until I came H5869 , and my eyes H7200 [H8799] had seen H2677 it: and, behold, the one half H4768 of the greatness H2451 of thy wisdom H5046 [H8717] was not told H3254 [H8804] to me: for thou exceedest H8052 the fame H8085 [H8804] that I heard.
  7 H835 Happy H582 are thy men H835 , and happy H5650 are these thy servants H5975 [H8802] , who stand H8548 continually H6440 before H8085 [H8802] thee, and hear H2451 thy wisdom.
  8 H1288 [H8803] Blessed H3068 be the LORD H430 thy God H2654 [H8804] , who delighted H5414 [H8800] in thee to set H3678 thee on his throne H4428 , to be king H3068 for the LORD H430 thy God H430 : because thy God H160 loved H3478 Israel H5975 [H8687] , to establish H5769 them for ever H5414 [H8799] , therefore he made H4428 thee king H6213 [H8800] over them, to do H4941 judgment H6666 and justice.
  9 H5414 [H8799] And she gave H4428 the king H3967 an hundred H6242 and twenty H3603 talents H2091 of gold H1314 , and of spices H3966 great H7230 abundance H3368 , and precious H68 stones H1314 : neither was there any such spice H4436 as the queen H7614 of Sheba H5414 [H8804] gave H4428 to king H8010 Solomon.
  10 H5650 And the servants H2361 also of Huram H5650 , and the servants H8010 of Solomon H935 [H8689] , who brought H2091 gold H211 from Ophir H935 [H8689] , brought H418 algum H6086 trees H3368 and precious H68 stones.
  11 H4428 And the king H6213 [H8799] made H418 of the algum H6086 trees H4546 terraces H1004 to the house H3068 of the LORD H4428 , and to the king's H1004 palace H3658 , and harps H5035 and psalteries H7891 [H8802] for singers H1992 : and there were none such H7200 [H8738] seen H6440 before H776 in the land H3063 of Judah.
  12 H4428 And king H8010 Solomon H5414 [H8804] gave H4436 to the queen H7614 of Sheba H2656 all her desire H7592 [H8804] , whatever she asked H935 [H8689] , besides that which she had brought H4428 to the king H2015 [H8799] . So she turned H3212 [H8799] , and went away H776 to her own land H5650 , she and her servants.
  13 H4948 Now the weight H2091 of gold H935 [H8804] that came H8010 to Solomon H259 in one H8141 year H8337 was six H3967 hundred H8346 and sixty H8337 and six H3603 talents H2091 of gold;
  14 H582 H8446 [H8802] Besides that which traders H5503 [H8802] and merchants H935 [H8688] brought H4428 . And all the kings H6152 of Arabia H6346 and governors H776 of the country H935 [H8688] brought H2091 gold H3701 and silver H8010 to Solomon.
  15 H4428 And king H8010 Solomon H6213 [H8799] made H3967 two hundred H6793 shields H7820 [H8803] of beaten H2091 gold H8337 : six H3967 hundred H7820 [H8803] shekels of beaten H2091 gold H5927 [H8686] went H259 to one H6793 shield.
  16 H7969 And three H3967 hundred H4043 shields H7820 [H8803] made he of beaten H2091 gold H7969 : three H3967 hundred H2091 shekels of gold H5927 [H8686] went H259 to one H4043 shield H4428 . And the king H5414 [H8799] put H1004 them in the house H3293 of the forest H3844 of Lebanon.
  17 H4428 Moreover the king H6213 [H8799] made H1419 a great H3678 throne H8127 of ivory H6823 [H8762] , and overlaid H2889 it with pure H2091 gold.
  18 H8337 And there were six H4609 steps H3678 to the throne H3534 , with a footstool H2091 of gold H270 [H8716] , which were fastened H3678 to the throne H3027 , and stays H3427 [H8800] on each side of the sitting H4725 place H8147 , and two H738 lions H5975 [H8802] standing H681 by H3027 the stays:
  19 H8147 H6240 And twelve H738 lions H5975 [H8802] stood H8337 there on the one side and on the other upon the six H4609 steps H6213 [H8738] . There was not the like made H4467 in any kingdom.
  20 H4945 And all the drinking H3627 vessels H4428 of king H8010 Solomon H2091 were of gold H3627 , and all the vessels H1004 of the house H3293 of the forest H3844 of Lebanon H5462 [H8803] were of pure H2091 gold H3701 : none were of silver H2803 [H8737] ; it was not considered H3972 as any H3117 thing in the days H8010 of Solomon.
  21 H4428 For the king's H591 ships H1980 [H8802] went H8659 to Tarshish H5650 with the servants H2361 of Huram H259 : once H7969 every three H8141 years H935 [H8799] came H591 the ships H8659 of Tarshish H5375 [H8802] bringing H2091 gold H3701 , and silver H8143 , ivory H6971 , and apes H8500 , and peacocks.
  22 H4428 And king H8010 Solomon H1431 [H8799] excelled H4428 all the kings H776 of the earth H6239 in riches H2451 and wisdom.
  23 H4428 And all the kings H776 of the earth H1245 [H8764] sought H6440 the presence H8010 of Solomon H8085 [H8800] , to hear H2451 his wisdom H430 , that God H5414 [H8804] had put H3820 in his heart.
  24 H935 [H8688] And they brought H376 every man H4503 his present H3627 , vessels H3701 of silver H3627 , and vessels H2091 of gold H8008 , and raiment H5402 , armour H1314 , and spices H5483 , horses H6505 , and mules H1697 , at a certain rate H8141 year H8141 by year.
  25 H8010 And Solomon H702 had four H505 thousand H723 stalls H5483 for horses H4818 and chariots H8147 H6240 , and twelve H505 thousand H6571 horsemen H3240 [H8686] ; whom he placed H7393 in the chariot H5892 cities H4428 , and with the king H3389 at Jerusalem.
  26 H4910 [H8802] And he reigned H4428 over all the kings H5104 from the river H776 even to the land H6430 of the Philistines H1366 , and to the border H4714 of Egypt.
  27 H4428 And the king H5414 [H8799] made H3701 silver H3389 in Jerusalem H68 as stones H730 , and cedar trees H5414 [H8804] he made H8256 as the sycamore trees H8219 that are in the low plains H7230 in abundance.
  28 H3318 [H8688] And they brought H8010 to Solomon H5483 horses H4714 from Egypt H776 , and from all lands.
  29 H7605 Now the rest H1697 of the acts H8010 of Solomon H7223 , first H314 and last H3789 [H8803] , are they not written H1697 in the book H5416 of Nathan H5030 the prophet H5016 , and in the prophecy H281 of Ahijah H7888 the Shilonite H2378 , and in the visions H3260 of Iddo H2374 the seer H3379 concerning Jeroboam H1121 the son H5028 of Nebat?
  30 H8010 And Solomon H4427 [H8799] reigned H3389 in Jerusalem H3478 over all Israel H705 forty H8141 years.
  31 H8010 And Solomon H7901 [H8799] slept H1 with his fathers H6912 [H8799] , and he was buried H5892 in the city H1732 of David H1 his father H7346 : and Rehoboam H1121 his son H4427 [H8799] reigned in his stead.
