1 Kings 10:8 Meaning and Commentary

1 Kings 10:8

Happy are thy men
The men of Israel, that had a king over them so wise, so great, so good:

happy are these thy servants, which stand continually before thee, and
hear thy wisdom;
who were now present, and to whom she pointed, and may respect not his nobles and courtiers only, but his menial servants, who had an opportunity of often hearing the wise sayings which dropped from his lips; and which no doubt were means of greatly improving their knowledge and understanding in things natural and divine.
