1 καὶ βασίλισσα Σαβα ἤκουσεν τὸ ὄνομα Σαλωμων καὶ ἦλθεν τοῦ πειράσαι Σαλωμων ἐν αἰνίγμασιν εἰς Ιερουσαλημ ἐν δυνάμει βαρείᾳ σφόδρα καὶ κάμηλοι αἴρουσαι ἀρώματα καὶ χρυσίον εἰς πλῆθος καὶ λίθον τίμιον καὶ ἦλθεν πρὸς Σαλωμων καὶ ἐλάλησεν πρὸς αὐτὸν πάντα ὅσα ἐν τῇ ψυχῇ αὐτῆς 2 καὶ ἀνήγγειλεν αὐτῇ Σαλωμων πάντας τοὺς λόγους αὐτῆς καὶ οὐ παρῆλθεν λόγος ἀπὸ Σαλωμων ὃν οὐκ ἀπήγγειλεν αὐτῇ 3 καὶ εἶδεν βασίλισσα Σαβα τὴν σοφίαν Σαλωμων καὶ τὸν οἶκον ὃν ᾠκοδόμησεν 4 καὶ τὰ βρώματα τῶν τραπεζῶν καὶ καθέδραν παίδων αὐτοῦ καὶ στάσιν λειτουργῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἱματισμὸν αὐτῶν καὶ οἰνοχόους αὐτοῦ καὶ στολισμὸν αὐτῶν καὶ τὰ ὁλοκαυτώματα ἃ ἀνέφερεν ἐν οἴκῳ κυρίου καὶ ἐξ ἑαυτῆς ἐγένετο 5 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα ἀληθινὸς ὁ λόγος ὃν ἤκουσα ἐν τῇ γῇ μου περὶ τῶν λόγων σου καὶ περὶ τῆς σοφίας σου 6 καὶ οὐκ ἐπίστευσα τοῖς λόγοις ἕως οὗ ἦλθον καὶ εἶδον οἱ ὀφθαλμοί μου καὶ ἰδοὺ οὐκ ἀπηγγέλη μοι ἥμισυ τοῦ πλήθους τῆς σοφίας σου προσέθηκας ἐπὶ τὴν ἀκοήν ἣν ἤκουσα 7 μακάριοι οἱ ἄνδρες μακάριοι οἱ παῖδές σου οὗτοι οἱ παρεστηκότες σοι διὰ παντὸς καὶ ἀκούουσιν σοφίαν σου 8 ἔστω κύριος ὁ θεός σου ηὐλογημένος ὃς ἠθέλησέν σοι τοῦ δοῦναί σε ἐπὶ θρόνον αὐτοῦ εἰς βασιλέα τῷ κυρίῳ θεῷ σου ἐν τῷ ἀγαπῆσαι κύριον τὸν θεόν σου τὸν Ισραηλ τοῦ στῆσαι αὐτὸν εἰς αἰῶνα καὶ ἔδωκέν σε ἐ{P'} αὐτοὺς εἰς βασιλέα τοῦ ποιῆσαι κρίμα καὶ δικαιοσύνην 1 And now Solomon was visited by the queen of Saba. His fame had reached her, and she came to make trial of his power with knotty questions. Great was the wealth she brought with her to Jerusalem; her camels were loaded with spices and abundant gold and precious stones. And when she met Solomon, she told him all the thoughts that exercised her mind; 2 every doubt he resolved, no question of hers but found an answer. 3 And when she saw how wise a man he was, saw, too, the house he had built, 4 the food that was on his table, the lodging of his servants, the order and splendour of his court, the fine attire of his cup-bearers, and what victims he offered in the Lord’s temple, she stood breathless in wonder. 5 And she said to the king, It was no false tale I heard in my own country, of the powers thou hast, of the wisdom which is thine. 6 I could not believe what they told me, without coming and seeing it for myself; now I find that half of it was lost in the telling, here are wonders surpassing all I heard. 7 Happy thy folk, happy these servants of thine who wait ever on thy presence, and listen to thy wise words. 8 Blessed be the Lord thy God, that would have a throne for himself, and thee, a king of his own, to sit on it! He loves Israel indeed, and means to preserve it evermore, that has appointed such a king to do justice and to make award for it. 1 Regina quoque Saba, cum audisset famam Salomonis, venit ut tentaret eum in ænigmatibus in Jerusalem, cum magnis opibus et camelis, qui portabant aromata, et auri plurimum, gemmasque pretiosas. Cumque venisset ad Salomonem, locuta est ei quæcumque erant in corde suo. 2 Et exposuit ei Salomon omnia quæ proposuerat: nec quidquam fuit, quod non perspicuum ei fecerit. 3 Quæ postquam vidit, sapientiam scilicet Salomonis, et domum quam ædificaverat, 4 necnon et cibaria mensæ ejus, et habitacula servorum, et officia ministrorum ejus, et vestimenta eorum, pincernas quoque et vestes eorum, et victimas quas immolabat in domo Domini: non erat præ stupore ultra in ea spiritus. 5 Dixitque ad regem: Verus est sermo quem audieram in terra mea de virtutibus et sapientia tua. 6 Non credebam narrantibus donec ipsa venissem, et vidissent oculi mei, et probassem vix medietatem sapientiæ tuæ mihi fuisse narratam: vicisti famam virtutibus tuis. 7 Beati viri tui, et beati servi tui, qui assistunt coram te omni tempore, et audiunt sapientiam tuam. 8 Sit Dominus Deus tuus benedictus, qui voluit te ordinare super thronum suum, regem Domini Dei tui. Quia diligit Deus Israël, et vult servare eum in æternum, idcirco posuit te super eum regem ut facias judicia atque justitiam.
9 καὶ ἔδωκεν τῷ βασιλεῖ ἑκατὸν εἴκοσι τάλαντα χρυσίου καὶ ἀρώματα εἰς πλῆθος πολὺ καὶ λίθον τίμιον καὶ οὐκ ἦν κατὰ τὰ ἀρώματα ἐκεῖνα ἃ ἔδωκεν βασίλισσα Σαβα τῷ βασιλεῖ Σαλωμων 10 καὶ οἱ παῖδες Σαλωμων καὶ οἱ παῖδες Χιραμ ἔφερον χρυσίον τῷ Σαλωμων ἐκ Σουφιρ καὶ ξύλα πεύκινα καὶ λίθον τίμιον 11 καὶ ἐποίησεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τὰ ξύλα τὰ πεύκινα ἀναβάσεις τῷ οἴκῳ κυρίου καὶ τῷ οἴκῳ τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ κιθάρας καὶ νάβλας τοῖς ᾠδοῖς καὶ οὐκ ὤφθησαν τοιαῦτα ἔμπροσθεν ἐν γῇ Ιουδα 12 καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμων ἔδωκεν τῇ βασιλίσσῃ Σαβα πάντα τὰ θελήματα αὐτῆς ἃ ᾔτησεν ἐκτὸς πάντων ὧν ἤνεγκεν τῷ βασιλεῖ Σαλωμων καὶ ἀπέστρεψεν εἰς τὴν γῆν αὐτῆς 9 A hundred and twenty talents’ weight of gold she gave to king Solomon, with many spices and precious stones; never were such spices as the queen of Saba gave to king Solomon. 10 (Though indeed Hiram’s fleet, when it brought back gold from Ophir, brought sandal-wood, as well as precious stones; 11 and of this sandal-wood king Solomon made pedestals for temple and palace, harp and zither for his musicians; never was such wood seen in Juda.) 12 Solomon, in his turn, gave the queen of Saba all she desired and asked for, more than ever she brought with her; and so she went back to her own country, with all her retinue. 9 Dedit autem regi centum viginti talenta auri, et aromata multa nimis, et gemmas pretiosissimas: non fuerunt aromata talia, ut hæc quæ dedit regina Saba regi Salomoni. 10 Sed et servi Hiram cum servis Salomonis attulerunt aurum de Ophir, et ligna thyina, et gemmas pretiosissimas: 11 de quibus fecit rex, de lignis scilicet thyinis, gradus in domo Domini, et in domo regia, citharas quoque, et psalteria cantoribus: numquam visa sunt in terra Juda ligna talia. 12 Rex autem Salomon dedit reginæ Saba cuncta quæ voluit, et quæ postulavit, et multo plura quam attulerat ad eum: quæ reversa abiit in terram suam cum servis suis.
13 καὶ ἦν ὁ σταθμὸς τοῦ χρυσίου τοῦ ἐνεχθέντος τῷ Σαλωμων ἐν ἐνιαυτῷ ἑνὶ ἑξακόσια ἑξήκοντα ἓξ τάλαντα χρυσίου 14 πλὴν τῶν ἀνδρῶν τῶν ὑποτεταγμένων καὶ τῶν ἐμπορευομένων ὧν ἔφερον καὶ πάντων τῶν βασιλέων τῆς Ἀραβίας καὶ σατραπῶν τῆς γῆς ἔφερον χρυσίον καὶ ἀργύριον τῷ βασιλεῖ Σαλωμων 15 καὶ ἐποίησεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμων διακοσίους θυρεοὺς χρυσοῦς ἐλατούς ἑξακόσιοι χρυσοῖ καθαροὶ τῷ ἑνὶ θυρεῷ ἑξακόσιοι χρυσοῖ ἐπῆσαν ἐπὶ τὸν ἕνα θυρεόν 16 καὶ τριακοσίας ἀσπίδας ἐλατὰς χρυσᾶς τριακοσίων χρυσῶν ἀνεφέρετο ἐπὶ τὴν ἀσπίδα ἑκάστην καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτὰς ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐν οἴκῳ δρυμοῦ τοῦ Λιβάνου 17 καὶ ἐποίησεν ὁ βασιλεὺς θρόνον ἐλεφάντινον ὀδόντων μέγαν καὶ κατεχρύσωσεν αὐτὸν χρυσίῳ δοκίμῳ 18 καὶ ἓξ ἀναβαθμοὶ τῷ θρόνῳ ἐνδεδεμένοι χρυσίῳ καὶ ἀγκῶνες ἔνθεν καὶ ἔνθεν ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου τῆς καθέδρας καὶ δύο λέοντες ἑστηκότες παρὰ τοὺς ἀγκῶνας 19 καὶ δώδεκα λέοντες ἑστηκότες ἐκεῖ ἐπὶ τῶν ἓξ ἀναβαθμῶν ἔνθεν καὶ ἔνθεν οὐκ ἐγενήθη οὕτως ἐν πάσῃ βασιλείᾳ 20 καὶ πάντα τὰ σκεύη τοῦ βασιλέως Σαλωμων χρυσίου καὶ πάντα τὰ σκεύη οἴκου δρυμοῦ τοῦ Λιβάνου χρυσίῳ κατειλημμένα οὐκ ἦν ἀργύριον λογιζόμενον ἐν ἡμέραις Σαλωμων εἰς οὐθέν 21 ὅτι ναῦς τῷ βασιλεῖ ἐπορεύετο εἰς Θαρσις μετὰ τῶν παίδων Χιραμ ἅπαξ διὰ τριῶν ἐτῶν ἤρχετο πλοῖα ἐκ Θαρσις τῷ βασιλεῖ γέμοντα χρυσίου καὶ ἀργυρίου καὶ ὀδόντων ἐλεφαντίνων καὶ πιθήκων 13 The weight of gold that reached Solomon every year was six hundred and sixty-six talents, 14 not counting what was brought by the envoys of different countries, by his own merchantmen, and by the kings of Arabia, with the governors of their provinces; these, too, brought gold and silver to king Solomon. 15 Two hundred shields king Solomon made of the gold;[1] six hundred sicles of gold went to one shield; 16 besides three hundred golden bucklers, three hundred sicles of gold being used for the plating of each; and all these the king put away in the store-chamber of the building that was called the Forest of Lebanon. 17 He also made a great throne of ivory, and lined it with gold unalloyed; 18 six steps led up to it, and the footstool was all of gold. This throne had an arm at either side, and a lion standing by it; 19 twelve other lions stood on the steps, six on either side; no other kingdom had a throne to match it. 20 Of gold all the plate was when the king feasted, of pure gold all the ornaments in the house called the Forest of Lebanon; in those days, silver was little thought of. 21 Every three years the king’s fleet and Hiram’s would sail to Tharsis, whence they came back laden with gold and silver; with ivory, too, and apes and peacocks for their freight. 13 Erat autem pondus auri quod afferebatur Salomoni per singulos annos, sexcenta sexaginta sex talenta auri, 14 excepta ea summa quam legati diversarum gentium et negotiatores afferre consueverant, omnesque reges Arabiæ, et satrapæ terrarum, qui comportabant aurum et argentum Salomoni. 15 Fecit igitur rex Salomon ducentas hastas aureas de summa sexcentorum aureorum, qui in singulis hastis expendebantur: 16 trecenta quoque scuta aurea trecentorum aureorum, quibus tegebantur singula scuta: posuitque ea rex in armentario, quod erat consitum nemore. 17 Fecit quoque rex solium eburneum grande, et vestivit illud auro mundissimo. 18 Sex quoque gradus, quibus ascendebatur ad solium, et scabellum aureum, et brachiola duo altrinsecus, et duos leones stantes juxta brachiola, 19 sed et alios duodecim leunculos stantes super sex gradus ex utraque parte: non fuit tale solium in universis regnis. 20 Omnia quoque vasa convivii regis erant aurea, et vasa domus saltus Libani ex auro purissimo. Argentum enim in diebus illis pro nihilo reputabatur. 21 Siquidem naves regis ibant in Tharsis cum servis Hiram, semel in annis tribus: et deferebant inde aurum, et argentum, et ebur, et simias, et pavos.
22 καὶ ἐμεγαλύνθη Σαλωμων ὑπὲρ πάντας τοὺς βασιλεῖς καὶ πλούτῳ καὶ σοφίᾳ 23 καὶ πάντες οἱ βασιλεῖς τῆς γῆς ἐζήτουν τὸ πρόσωπον Σαλωμων ἀκοῦσαι τῆς σοφίας αὐτοῦ ἧς ἔδωκεν ὁ θεὸς ἐν καρδίᾳ αὐτοῦ 24 καὶ αὐτοὶ ἔφερον ἕκαστος τὰ δῶρα αὐτοῦ σκεύη ἀργυρᾶ καὶ σκεύη χρυσᾶ καὶ ἱματισμόν στακτὴν καὶ ἡδύσματα ἵππους καὶ ἡμιόνους τὸ κα{T'} ἐνιαυτὸν ἐνιαυτόν 25 καὶ ἦσαν τῷ Σαλωμων τέσσαρες χιλιάδες θήλειαι ἵπποι εἰς ἅρματα καὶ δώδεκα χιλιάδες ἱππέων καὶ ἔθετο αὐτοὺς ἐν πόλεσιν τῶν ἁρμάτων καὶ μετὰ τοῦ βασιλέως ἐν Ιερουσαλημ 26 καὶ ἦν ἡγούμενος πάντων τῶν βασιλέων ἀπὸ τοῦ ποταμοῦ καὶ ἕως γῆς ἀλλοφύλων καὶ ἕως ὁρίου Αἰγύπτου 27 καὶ ἔδωκεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τὸ χρυσίον καὶ τὸ ἀργύριον ἐν Ιερουσαλημ ὡς λίθους καὶ τὰς κέδρους ὡς συκαμίνους τὰς ἐν τῇ πεδινῇ εἰς πλῆθος 28 καὶ ἡ ἔξοδος τῶν ἵππων ἐξ Αἰγύπτου τῷ Σαλωμων καὶ ἐκ πάσης τῆς γῆς 22 So, both in riches and in renown, Solomon outvied all the kings of the world; 23 and kings from every part of the world craved his audience, to make proof for themselves of the wisdom God had put in his heart. 24 And all these brought him gifts, so that gold and silver ware, presents of clothes and armour, spices, too, and horses and mules came in year by year. 25 Forty thousand horses king Solomon had in his stables, twelve thousand chariots, and horsemen with them; some he kept in his chariot cities, and others at his side in Jerusalem. 26 And he was overlord of all the kings from the river Euphrates to Philistia, and to the frontiers of Egypt. 27 Silver he made as common in Jerusalem as stone, and cedars as plentiful as the sycamores that grow in the valleys; 28 horses he had from Egypt and from all the world over.[2] 22 Magnificatus est igitur Salomon super omnes reges terræ præ divitiis et gloria. 23 Omnesque reges terrarum desiderabant videre faciem Salomonis, ut audirent sapientiam quam dederat Deus in corde ejus: 24 et deferebant ei munera, vasa argentea et aurea, et vestes, et arma, et aromata, equos, et mulos, per singulos annos. 25 Habuit quoque Salomon quadraginta millia equorum in stabulis, et curruum equitumque duodecim millia: constituitque eos in urbibus quadrigarum, et ubi erat rex in Jerusalem. 26 Exercuit etiam potestatem super cunctos reges a flumine Euphrate usque ad terram Philisthinorum, et usque ad terminos Ægypti. 27 Tantamque copiam præbuit argenti in Jerusalem quasi lapidum: et cedrorum tantam multitudinem velut sycomororum quæ gignuntur in campestribus. 28 Adducebantur autem ei equi de Ægypto, cunctisque regionibus.
29 καὶ οἱ κατάλοιποι λόγοι Σαλωμων οἱ πρῶτοι καὶ οἱ ἔσχατοι ἰδοὺ γεγραμμένοι ἐπὶ τῶν λόγων Ναθαν τοῦ προφήτου καὶ ἐπὶ τῶν λόγων Αχια τοῦ Σηλωνίτου καὶ ἐν ταῖς ὁράσεσιν Ιωηλ τοῦ ὁρῶντος περὶ Ιεροβοαμ υἱοῦ Ναβατ 30 καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν Σαλωμων ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐπὶ πάντα Ισραηλ τεσσαράκοντα ἔτη 31 καὶ ἐκοιμήθη Σαλωμων καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν ἐν πόλει Δαυιδ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν Ροβοαμ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἀν{T'} αὐτοῦ 29 What else Solomon did, first and last, is to be found in the book that was written by the prophet Nathan, in the prophecy of Ahias the Silonite, and in the vision of the seer Addo that pronounces doom against Jeroboam son of Nabat. 30 For forty years Solomon reigned at Jerusalem over all Israel; 31 then they laid him to rest with his fathers, with the Keep of David for his burying-place, and the throne passed to his son Roboam. 29 Reliqua autem operum Salomonis priorum et novissimorum scripta sunt in verbis Nathan prophetæ, et in libris Ahiæ Silonitis, in visione quoque Addo videntis contra Jeroboam filium Nabat. 30 Regnavit autem Salomon in Jerusalem super omnem Israël quadraginta annis. 31 Dormivitque cum patribus suis, et sepelierunt eum in civitate David: regnavitque Roboam filius ejus pro eo.
