I Kings 10 (asv)
10:11And the navy also of Hiram, that brought gold from Ophir, brought in from Ophir great plenty of almug-trees and precious stones. 10:12And the king made of the almug-trees pillars for the house of Jehovah, and for the king's house, harps also and psalteries for the singers: there came no such almug-trees, nor were seen, unto this day.
10:13And king Solomon gave to the queen of Sheba all her desire, whatsoever she asked, besides that which Solomon gave her of his royal bounty. So she turned, and went to her own land, she and her servants.
10:14Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred threescore and six talents of gold,10:15besides that which the traders brought, and the traffic of the merchants, and of all the kings of the mingled people, and of the governors of the country. 10:16And king Solomon made two hundred bucklers of beaten gold; six hundred shekels of gold went to one buckler. 10:17And he made three hundred shields of beaten gold; three pounds of gold went to one shield: and the king put them in the house of the forest of Lebanon. 10:18Moreover the king made a great throne of ivory, and overlaid it with the finest gold. 10:19There were six steps to the throne, and the top of the throne was round behind; and there were stays on either side by the place of the seat, and two lions standing beside the stays. 10:20And twelve lions stood there on the one side and on the other upon the six steps: there was not the like made in any kingdom. 10:21And 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 were of silver; it was nothing accounted of in the days of Solomon. 10:22For the king had at sea a navy of Tarshish with the navy of Hiram: once every three years came the navy of Tarshish, bringing gold, and silver, ivory, and apes, and peacocks.
10:23So king Solomon exceeded all the kings of the earth in riches and in wisdom. 10:24And all the earth sought the presence of Solomon, to hear his wisdom, which God had put in his heart. 10:25And they brought every man his tribute, vessels of silver, and vessels of gold, and raiment, and armor, and spices, horses, and mules, a rate year by year.
10:26And Solomon gathered together chariots and horsemen: and he had a thousand and four hundred chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen, that he bestowed in the chariot cities, and with the king at Jerusalem. 10:27And the king made silver to be in Jerusalem as stones, and cedars made he to be as the sycomore-trees that are in the lowland, for abundance. 10:28And the horses which Solomon had were brought out of Egypt; and the king's merchants received them in droves, each drove at a price. 10:29And a chariot came up and went out of Egypt for six hundred shekels of silver, and a horse for a hundred and fifty; and so for all the kings of the Hittites, and for the kings of Syria, did they bring them out by their means.
