(1) And the sovereigness of Shaba heard of the report of Shalumah concerning the Name of YAHUAH, and came to try him with hard questions. (2) And she came to Yurushalam with a very great company, with camels that bore spices, very much gold, and precious stones. And she came to Shalumah, and she spoke with him about all that was in her heart. (3) And Shalumah answered all her questions. There was no matter hidden for the sovereign that he did not make known to her. (4) And the sovereigness of Shaba saw all the wisdom of Shalumah, and the house that he had built, (5) and the food on his table, and the seating of his servants, and the service of his waiters and their attire, and his cupbearers, and his burnt offerings which he offered in the House of YAHUAH, and she was breathless. (6) Then she said to the sovereign, “The word I heard in my own land about your words and your wisdom was true. (7) “But I did not believe the words until I came and saw with my own eyes. And see, I have not been told the half! Your wisdom and prosperity exceed the report which I heard. (8) “Happy are your men and happy are these your servants, who stand continually before you, who are hearing your wisdom! (9) “Adored is YAHUAH your Aluahim, who delighted in you, to put you on the throne of Yashur’al! Because YAHUAH has loved Yashur’al forever, therefore He made you sovereign, to do right-ruling and righteousness.” (10) And she gave the sovereign one hundred and twenty talents of gold, and very many spices, and precious stones. Never again did so many spices come as the sovereigness of Shaba gave to Sovereign Shalumah.
