4 When the queen of Sheʹba had seen all the wisdom of Solʹo·mon,+ the house that he built,+ 5 the food of his table,+ the seating of his servants, the table service of his waiters and their attire, his cupbearers, and his burnt sacrifices that he regularly offered up at the house of Jehovah, she was left completely breathless.* 6 So she said to the king: “The report that I heard in my own land about your achievements* and about your wisdom was true. 7 But I did not put faith in the reports until I had come and had seen it with my own eyes. And look! I had not been told the half. You have far surpassed in wisdom and prosperity the report that I heard.
