queen of Sheba
1 Kings 10:1
10:1 queen of Sheba. Sheba was the country of the Sabaeans, a prosperous nation in southern Arabia. Modern scholars have supposed that this long journey of its queen was made for commercial purposes, but there is no reason to question the Biblical testimony that she came to learn more about the true God (see I Kings 10:9) who had given Solomon such unique wisdom and resulting riches.
