4 When the queen of Sheba perceived all the wisdom of Solomon, the house that he had built,5 the food of his table, the seating of his servants, the attendance of his waiters and their attire, his cupbearers, and [a]his stairway by which he went up to the house of the Lord, there was no more spirit in her.6 Then she said to the king, “It was a true report which I heard in my own land about your words and your wisdom.7 Nevertheless I did not believe the [b]reports, until I came and my eyes had seen it. And behold, the half was not told me. You exceed in wisdom and prosperity the report which I heard.
2 Chronicles 9:4-6New American Standard Bible (NASB)
4 the food at his table, the seating of his servants, the attendance of his ministers and their attire, his cupbearers and their attire, and [a]his stairway by which he went up to the house of the Lord, she was breathless.5 Then she said to the king, “It was a true report which I heard in my own land about your words and your wisdom.6 Nevertheless I did not believe their reports until I came and my eyes had seen it. And behold, the half of the greatness of your wisdom was not told me. You surpass the report that I heard.
2 Chronicles 9:20-22New American Standard Bible (NASB)
20 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; silver was not considered [a]valuable in the days of Solomon.21 For the king had ships which went to Tarshish with the servants of Huram; once every three years the ships of Tarshish came bringing gold and silver, ivory and apes and peacocks.
22 So King Solomon became greater than all the kings of the earth in riches and wisdom.
