1 Kings 10

The Queen of Sheba sees Solomon’s great wisdom and splendor and honor him and the Lord. Solomon’s and Israel’s great prosperity are described.

  • How did Solomon rise to the throne? By conniving or his powerful influence? Cf. verse 9.
  • Note verse 14; a “talent” weighed about 75 pounds, and gold currently is $20,800 for a pound. In our money, how much did Solomon annually receive in gold?
  • Read verse 24—think ahead to when Christ is ruling on the earth, and the whole world will come to Jerusalem to see Jesus the Son of David!
