an hundred and twenty talents
1 Kings 10:10
10:10 an hundred and twenty talents. The kingdom of Sheba was evidently quite wealthy, as this was a lavish gift. However, this also is the amount of gold given to Solomon by King Hiram of Phoenicia (I Kings 9:14). No wonder King Solomon could be so prodigal with his building projects (note I Kings 9:27,28; 10:23-29).
