View In My Bible
18 Moreover, the king made a great throne of 1ivory and overlaid it with refined gold. 19 There were six steps to the throne and a round top to the throne at its rear, and aarms bon each side of the seat , and two lions standing beside the carms. 20 Twelve lions were standing there on the six steps on the one side and on the other; nothing like it was made for any other kingdom. 21 All King Solomon's drinking vessels were of gold, and all the vessels of the house of the forest of Lebanon were of pure gold. None was of silver; it was not considered dvaluable in the days of Solomon. 22 For 2the king had at sea the ships of Tarshish with the ships of Hiram; once every three years the ships of Tarshish came bringing gold and silver, ivory and apes and peacocks. 23 3So King Solomon became greater than all the kings of the earth in riches and in wisdom. 24 All the earth was seeking the presence of Solomon, 4to hear his wisdom which God had put in his heart. 25 5They brought every man his gift, articles of silver and gold, garments, weapons, spices, horses, and mules, so much year by year. 26 6Now Solomon gathered chariots and horsemen; and he had 1,400 chariots and 12,000 horsemen, and he estationed them in the 7chariot cities and with the king in Jerusalem. 27 8The king made silver as common as stones in Jerusalem, and he made cedars as plentiful as sycamore trees that are in the flowland. 28 9Also Solomon's import of horses was from Egypt and Kue, and the king's merchants procured them from Kue for a price. 29 A chariot gwas imported from Egypt for 600 shekels of silver, and a horse for 150 ; and hby the same means they exported them 10to all the kings of the Hittites and to the kings of the Arameans.
