1 καὶ βασίλισσα Σαβα ἤκουσεν τὸ ὄνομα Σαλωμων καὶ τὸ ὄνομα κυρίου καὶ ἦλθεν πειράσαι αὐτὸν ἐν αἰνίγμασιν 2 καὶ ἦλθεν εἰς Ιερουσαλημ ἐν δυνάμει βαρείᾳ σφόδρα καὶ κάμηλοι αἴρουσαι ἡδύσματα καὶ χρυσὸν πολὺν σφόδρα καὶ λίθον τίμιον καὶ εἰσῆλθεν πρὸς Σαλωμων καὶ ἐλάλησεν αὐτῷ πάντα ὅσα ἦν ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ αὐτῆς 3 καὶ ἀπήγγειλεν αὐτῇ Σαλωμων πάντας τοὺς λόγους αὐτῆς οὐκ ἦν λόγος παρεωραμένος παρὰ τοῦ βασιλέως ὃν οὐκ ἀπήγγειλεν αὐτῇ 4 καὶ εἶδεν βασίλισσα Σαβα πᾶσαν φρόνησιν Σαλωμων καὶ τὸν οἶκον ὃν ᾠκοδόμησεν 5 καὶ τὰ βρώματα Σαλωμων καὶ τὴν καθέδραν παίδων αὐτοῦ καὶ τὴν στάσιν λειτουργῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ τὸν ἱματισμὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ τοὺς οἰνοχόους αὐτοῦ καὶ τὴν ὁλοκαύτωσιν αὐτοῦ ἣν ἀνέφερεν ἐν οἴκῳ κυρίου καὶ ἐξ ἑαυτῆς ἐγένετο 6 καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα Σαλωμων ἀληθινὸς ὁ λόγος ὃν ἤκουσα ἐν τῇ γῇ μου περὶ τοῦ λόγου σου καὶ περὶ τῆς φρονήσεώς σου 7 καὶ οὐκ ἐπίστευσα τοῖς λαλοῦσίν μοι ἕως ὅτου παρεγενόμην καὶ ἑωράκασιν οἱ ὀφθαλμοί μου καὶ ἰδοὺ οὐκ ἔστιν τὸ ἥμισυ καθὼς ἀπήγγειλάν μοι προστέθεικας ἀγαθὰ πρὸς αὐτὰ ἐπὶ πᾶσαν τὴν ἀκοήν ἣν ἤκουσα ἐν τῇ γῇ μου 8 μακάριαι αἱ γυναῖκές σου μακάριοι οἱ παῖδές σου οὗτοι οἱ παρεστηκότες ἐνώπιόν σου δ{I'} ὅλου οἱ ἀκούοντες πᾶσαν τὴν φρόνησίν σου 9 γένοιτο κύριος ὁ θεός σου εὐλογημένος ὃς ἠθέλησεν ἐν σοὶ δοῦναί σε ἐπὶ θρόνου Ισραηλ διὰ τὸ ἀγαπᾶν κύριον τὸν Ισραηλ στῆσαι εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα καὶ ἔθετό σε βασιλέα ἐ{P'} αὐτοὺς τοῦ ποιεῖν κρίμα ἐν δικαιοσύνῃ καὶ ἐν κρίμασιν αὐτῶν 1 And now Solomon was visited by the queen of Saba. She had heard by report of the wisdom with which the Lord’s favour had endowed him, and came to make trial of his powers with knotty questions. 2 Magnificent was the retinue with which she entered Jerusalem; spices and abundant gold and precious stones were the lading of her camels. And when she met king Solomon, she told him all the thoughts that exercised her mind; 3 every doubt he resolved, no question of hers but found an answer. 4 And when she saw how wise a man he was, saw, too, the house he had built, 5 the food that was on his table, the lodging of his servants, the order and splendour of his court, how the wine went round, and what burnt-sacrifice he offered in the Lord’s temple,[1] she stood breathless in wonder. 6 And she said to the king, It was no false tale I heard in my own country, 7 of all thou doest and of all the wisdom that is thine. I could not believe what they told me, without coming and seeing it for myself; and now I find that half of it was lost in the telling; here is greater wisdom, greater prosperity than all the tales that reached me. 8 Happy thy folk, happy these servants of thine who wait ever upon thy presence and listen to thy wise words. 9 Blessed be the Lord thy God, who, in his eternal love for Israel, has brought thee, his favourite, to the throne, given thee a king’s power to do justice and to make award! 1 Sed et regina Saba, audita fama Salomonis in nomine Domini, venit tentare eum in ænigmatibus. 2 Et ingressa Jerusalem multo cum comitatu et divitiis, camelis portantibus aromata, et aurum infinitum nimis, et gemmas pretiosas, venit ad regem Salomonem, et locuta est ei universa quæ habebat in corde suo. 3 Et docuit eam Salomon omnia verba quæ proposuerat: non fuit sermo qui regem posset latere, et non responderet ei. 4 Videns autem regina Saba omnem sapientiam Salomonis, et domum quam ædificaverat, 5 et cibos mensæ ejus, et habitacula servorum, et ordines ministrantium, vestesque eorum, et pincernas, et holocausta quæ offerebat in domo Domini: non habebat ultra spiritum. 6 Dixitque ad regem: Verus est sermo quem audivi in terra mea 7 super sermonibus tuis, et super sapientia tua: et non credebam narrantibus mihi, donec ipsa veni, et vidi oculis meis, et probavi quod media pars mihi nuntiata non fuerit: major est sapientia et opera tua, quam rumor quem audivi. 8 Beati viri tui, et beati servi tui, qui stant coram te semper, et audiunt sapientiam tuam. 9 Sit Dominus Deus tuus benedictus, cui complacuisti, et posuit te super thronum Israël, eo quod dilexerit Dominus Israël in sempiternum, et constituit te regem ut faceres judicium et justitiam.
10 καὶ ἔδωκεν τῷ Σαλωμων ἑκατὸν εἴκοσι τάλαντα χρυσίου καὶ ἡδύσματα πολλὰ σφόδρα καὶ λίθον τίμιον οὐκ ἐληλύθει κατὰ τὰ ἡδύσματα ἐκεῖνα ἔτι εἰς πλῆθος ἃ ἔδωκεν βασίλισσα Σαβα τῷ βασιλεῖ Σαλωμων 11 καὶ ἡ ναῦς Χιραμ ἡ αἴρουσα τὸ χρυσίον ἐκ Σουφιρ ἤνεγκεν ξύλα ἀπελέκητα πολλὰ σφόδρα καὶ λίθον τίμιον 12 καὶ ἐποίησεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τὰ ξύλα τὰ ἀπελέκητα ὑποστηρίγματα τοῦ οἴκου κυρίου καὶ τοῦ οἴκου τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ νάβλας καὶ κινύρας τοῖς ᾠδοῖς οὐκ ἐληλύθει τοιαῦτα ξύλα ἀπελέκητα ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς οὐδὲ ὤφθησάν που ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης 13 καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμων ἔδωκεν τῇ βασιλίσσῃ Σαβα πάντα ὅσα ἠθέλησεν ὅσα ᾐτήσατο ἐκτὸς πάντων ὧν δεδώκει αὐτῇ διὰ χειρὸς τοῦ βασιλέως Σαλωμων καὶ ἀπεστράφη καὶ ἦλθεν εἰς τὴν γῆν αὐτῆς αὐτὴ καὶ πάντες οἱ παῖδες αὐτῆς 10 A hundred and twenty talents’ weight of gold she gave to king Solomon, with many spices and precious stones; never did such abundance of spices come to Israel as those which the queen of Saba gave. 11 (Though indeed Hiram’s fleet, when it brought back the gold from Ophir, brought rich store of sandal-wood, as well as precious stones; 12 and of this sandal-wood king Solomon made pedestals for temple and palace, harp and zither for his musicians; finer sandal-wood never reached us, no, nor was ever seen.) 13 Solomon, in his turn, gave the queen of Saba all she desired and asked for; gave her much, too, unasked, in the royal munificence that was his. And so she went back to her own country, with all her retinue. 10 Dedit ergo regi centum viginti talenta auri, et aromata multa nimis, et gemmas pretiosas: non sunt allata ultra aromata tam multa, quam ea quæ dedit regina Saba regi Salomoni. 11 (Sed et classis Hiram, quæ portabat aurum de Ophir, attulit ex Ophir ligna thyina multa nimis, et gemmas pretiosas. 12 Fecitque rex de lignis thyinis fulcra domus Domini et domus regiæ, et citharas lyrasque cantoribus: non sunt allata hujuscemodi ligna thyina, neque visa usque in præsentem diem.) 13 Rex autem Salomon dedit reginæ Saba omnia quæ voluit et petivit ab eo, exceptis his quæ ultro obtulerat ei munere regio. Quæ reversa est, et abiit in terram suam cum servis suis.
14 καὶ ἦν ὁ σταθμὸς τοῦ χρυσίου τοῦ ἐληλυθότος τῷ Σαλωμων ἐν ἐνιαυτῷ ἑνὶ ἑξακόσια καὶ ἑξήκοντα ἓξ τάλαντα χρυσίου 15 χωρὶς τῶν φόρων τῶν ὑποτεταγμένων καὶ τῶν ἐμπόρων καὶ πάντων τῶν βασιλέων τοῦ πέραν καὶ τῶν σατραπῶν τῆς γῆς 16 καὶ ἐποίησεν Σαλωμων τριακόσια δόρατα χρυσᾶ ἐλατά τριακόσιοι χρυσοῖ ἐπῆσαν ἐπὶ τὸ δόρυ τὸ ἕν 17 καὶ τριακόσια ὅπλα χρυσᾶ ἐλατά τρεῖς μναῖ χρυσίου ἐνῆσαν εἰς τὸ ὅπλον τὸ ἕν καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτὰ εἰς οἶκον δρυμοῦ τοῦ Λιβάνου 18 καὶ ἐποίησεν ὁ βασιλεὺς θρόνον ἐλεφάντινον μέγαν καὶ περιεχρύσωσεν αὐτὸν χρυσίῳ δοκίμῳ 19 ἓξ ἀναβαθμοὶ τῷ θρόνῳ καὶ προτομαὶ μόσχων τῷ θρόνῳ ἐκ τῶν ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ καὶ χεῖρες ἔνθεν καὶ ἔνθεν ἐπὶ τοῦ τόπου τῆς καθέδρας καὶ δύο λέοντες ἑστηκότες παρὰ τὰς χεῖρας 20 καὶ δώδεκα λέοντες ἑστῶτες ἐπὶ τῶν ἓξ ἀναβαθμῶν ἔνθεν καὶ ἔνθεν οὐ γέγονεν οὕτως πάσῃ βασιλείᾳ 21 καὶ πάντα τὰ σκεύη τοῦ πότου Σαλωμων χρυσᾶ καὶ λουτῆρες χρυσοῖ πάντα τὰ σκεύη οἴκου δρυμοῦ τοῦ Λιβάνου χρυσίῳ συγκεκλεισμένα οὐκ ἦν ἀργύριον ὅτι οὐκ ἦν λογιζόμενον ἐν ταῖς ἡμέραις Σαλωμων 22 ὅτι ναῦς Θαρσις τῷ βασιλεῖ ἐν τῇ θαλάσσῃ μετὰ τῶν νηῶν Χιραμ μία διὰ τριῶν ἐτῶν ἤρχετο τῷ βασιλεῖ ναῦς ἐκ Θαρσις χρυσίου καὶ ἀργυρίου καὶ λίθων τορευτῶν καὶ πελεκητῶν αὕτη ἦν ἡ πραγματεία τῆς προνομῆς ἧς ἀνήνεγκεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμων οἰκοδομῆσαι τὸν οἶκον κυρίου καὶ τὸν οἶκον τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ τὸ τεῖχος Ιερουσαλημ καὶ τὴν ἄκραν τοῦ περιφράξαι τὸν φραγμὸν τῆς πόλεως Δαυιδ καὶ τὴν Ασσουρ καὶ τὴν Μαγδαν καὶ τὴν Γαζερ καὶ τὴν Βαιθωρων τὴν ἀνωτέρω καὶ τὴν Ιεθερμαθ καὶ πάσας τὰς πόλεις τῶν ἁρμάτων καὶ πάσας τὰς πόλεις τῶν ἱππέων καὶ τὴν πραγματείαν Σαλωμων ἣν ἐπραγματεύσατο οἰκοδομῆσαι ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ἐν πάσῃ τῇ γῇ τοῦ μὴ κατάρξαι αὐτοῦ πάντα τὸν λαὸν τὸν ὑπολελειμμένον ἀπὸ τοῦ Χετταίου καὶ τοῦ Αμορραίου καὶ τοῦ Φερεζαίου καὶ τοῦ Χαναναίου καὶ τοῦ Ευαίου καὶ τοῦ Ιεβουσαίου καὶ τοῦ Γεργεσαίου τῶν μὴ ἐκ τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ ὄντων τὰ τέκνα αὐτῶν τὰ ὑπολελειμμένα με{T'} αὐτοὺς ἐν τῇ γῇ οὓς οὐκ ἐδύναντο οἱ υἱοὶ Ισραηλ ἐξολεθρεῦσαι αὐτούς καὶ ἀνήγαγεν αὐτοὺς Σαλωμων εἰς φόρον ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης καὶ ἐκ τῶν υἱῶν Ισραηλ οὐκ ἔδωκε Σαλωμων εἰς πρᾶγμα ὅτι αὐτοὶ ἦσαν ἄνδρες οἱ πολεμισταὶ καὶ παῖδες αὐτοῦ καὶ ἄρχοντες τῶν ἁρμάτων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἱππεῖς αὐτοῦ 14 The weight of gold that reached Solomon every year was six hundred and sixty-six talents, 15 not counting what was brought him by his revenue officers, merchants and pedlars, from the kings of Arabia, and from his own commissioners. 16 Two hundred shields king Solomon made of the purest gold, allowing six hundred sicles of gold to the plating of each; 17 three hundred bucklers, too, of assayed gold, with three (hundred) minas of gold to cover each;[2] and all these the king put in the building that was called the Forest of Lebanon. 18 He also made a great throne of ivory, and lined it with gold unalloyed; 19 six steps led up to it, and at the back the upper part of it was rounded. The seat itself had two supporters, with a lion standing by each, 20 and on each step there was a lion at either side; no other kingdom could shew such workmanship. 21 Of gold were all the goblets from which king Solomon drank, of purest gold all the furniture in the building called the Forest of Lebanon; no silver was used, for indeed in King Solomon’s day silver was little thought of. 22 And 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. 14 Erat autem pondus auri quod afferebatur Salomoni per annos singulos, sexcentorum sexaginta sex talentorum auri, 15 excepto eo quod afferebant viri qui super vectigalia erant, et negotiatores, universique scruta vendentes, et omnes reges Arabiæ, ducesque terræ. 16 Fecit quoque rex Salomon ducenta scuta de auro purissimo: sexcentos auri siclos dedit in laminas scuti unius. 17 Et trecentas peltas ex auro probato: trecentæ minæ auri unam peltam vestiebant: posuitque eas rex in domo saltus Libani. 18 Fecit etiam rex Salomon thronum de ebore grandem: et vestivit eum auro fulvo nimis, 19 qui habebat sex gradus: et summitas throni rotunda erat in parte posteriori: et duæ manus hinc atque inde tenentes sedile: et duo leones stabant juxta manus singulas. 20 Et duodecim leunculi stantes super sex gradus hinc atque inde: non est factum tale opus in universis regnis. 21 Sed et omnia vasa quibus potabat rex Salomon, erant aurea: et universa supellex domus saltus Libani de auro purissimo: non erat argentum, nec alicujus pretii putabatur in diebus Salomonis, 22 quia classis regis per mare cum classe Hiram semel per tres annos ibat in Tharsis, deferens inde aurum, et argentum, et dentes elephantorum, et simias, et pavos.
23 καὶ ἐμεγαλύνθη Σαλωμων ὑπὲρ πάντας τοὺς βασιλεῖς τῆς γῆς πλούτῳ καὶ φρονήσει 24 καὶ πάντες βασιλεῖς τῆς γῆς ἐζήτουν τὸ πρόσωπον Σαλωμων τοῦ ἀκοῦσαι τῆς φρονήσεως αὐτοῦ ἧς ἔδωκεν κύριος ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ αὐτοῦ 25 καὶ αὐτοὶ ἔφερον ἕκαστος τὰ δῶρα αὐτοῦ σκεύη χρυσᾶ καὶ ἱματισμόν στακτὴν καὶ ἡδύσματα καὶ ἵππους καὶ ἡμιόνους τὸ κα{T'} ἐνιαυτὸν ἐνιαυτόν 26 καὶ ἦσαν τῷ Σαλωμων τέσσαρες χιλιάδες θήλειαι ἵπποι εἰς ἅρματα καὶ δώδεκα χιλιάδες ἱππέων καὶ ἔθετο αὐτὰς ἐν ταῖς πόλεσι τῶν ἁρμάτων καὶ μετὰ τοῦ βασιλέως ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ ἦν ἡγούμενος πάντων τῶν βασιλέων ἀπὸ τοῦ ποταμοῦ καὶ ἕως γῆς ἀλλοφύλων καὶ ἕως ὁρίων Αἰγύπτου 27 καὶ ἔδωκεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τὸ χρυσίον καὶ τὸ ἀργύριον ἐν Ιερουσαλημ ὡς λίθους καὶ τὰς κέδρους ἔδωκεν ὡς συκαμίνους τὰς ἐν τῇ πεδινῇ εἰς πλῆθος 28 καὶ ἡ ἔξοδος τῶν ἵππων Σαλωμων ἐξ Αἰγύπτου καὶ ἐκ Θεκουε ἔμποροι τοῦ βασιλέως ἐλάμβανον ἐκ Θεκουε ἐν ἀλλάγματι 29 καὶ ἀνέβαινεν ἡ ἔξοδος ἐξ Αἰγύπτου ἅρμα ἀντὶ ἑκατὸν ἀργυρίου καὶ ἵππος ἀντὶ πεντήκοντα ἀργυρίου καὶ οὕτω πᾶσιν τοῖς βασιλεῦσιν Χεττιιν καὶ βασιλεῦσιν Συρίας κατὰ θάλασσαν ἐξεπορεύοντο 23 So, both in riches and in wisdom, Solomon outvied all the kings of the world; 24 and from every part of the world men craved his audience, to make proof for themselves of the wisdom God had put in his heart. 25 And all these brought him gifts, so that gold and silver ware, presents of clothes and of armour, spices too, and horses and mules, came in year by year. 26 Of chariots and horsemen king Solomon mustered a great force, fourteen hundred chariots and twelve thousand horsemen; of these, some were in the fortified towns, and some at the king’s side in Jerusalem. 27 Silver he made as common in Jerusalem as stone, and cedars plentiful as the sycamores that grow in the plains. 28 And horses were brought to Solomon from Egypt and from Coa,[3] where his agents bought them and sent them to him for a fixed sum. 29 Six hundred pieces of silver was the cost of a chariot brought from Egypt, and fifty of a horse; the kings of the Hethites and of Syria, too, sold him horses at the same price. 23 Magnificatus est ergo rex Salomon super omnes reges terræ divitiis et sapientia. 24 Et universa terra desiderabat vultum Salomonis, ut audiret sapientiam ejus, quam dederat Deus in corde ejus. 25 Et singuli deferebant ei munera, vasa argentea et aurea, vestes et arma bellica, aromata quoque, et equos et mulos per annos singulos. 26 Congregavitque Salomon currus et equites, et facti sunt ei mille quadringenti currus, et duodecim millia equitum: et disposuit eos per civitates munitas, et cum rege in Jerusalem. 27 Fecitque ut tanta esset abundantia argenti in Jerusalem, quanta et lapidum: et cedrorum præbuit multitudinem quasi sycomoros quæ nascuntur in campestribus. 28 Et educebantur equi Salomoni de Ægypto, et de Coa. Negotiatores enim regis emebant de Coa, et statuto pretio perducebant. 29 Egrediebatur autem quadriga ex Ægypto sexcentis siclis argenti, et equus centum quinquaginta. Atque in hunc modum cuncti reges Hethæorum et Syriæ equos venundabant.
