11Now when the 2queen of 3Shebaheard about the fame of Solomon concerning the name of the LORD, she came4to test him with difficultquestions.
So she came to Jerusalem with a verylargeretinue, with camels5carryingspices and verymuchgold and preciousstones. When she came to Solomon, she spoke with him about all that was in her heart.
3Solomonaansweredall her questions; nothing was hidden from the kingwhich he did not bexplain to her.
When the queen of Shebaperceivedall the wisdom of Solomon, the house that he had built,
the food of his table, the seating of his servants, the attendance of his waiters and their attire, his cupbearers, and chis stairway by which he went up to the house of the LORD, there was nomorespirit in her.
Then she said to the king, "It was a truereportwhich I heard in my own landabout your words and your wisdom.
"Nevertheless I did not believe the dreports, until I came and my eyes had seen it. And behold, the half was not told me. You exceed in wisdom and prosperity the reportwhich I heard.
"How 6blessed are your men, how blessed are these your servants who standbefore you continually and hear your wisdom.
