King Solomon gives gifts to the Queen of Sheba (2 Chr 9:12-9:12)

“Meanwhile King Solomon granted the Queen of Sheba every desire that she expressed. He gave her well beyond what she had brought to the king. Then she returned to her own land, with her servants.”

This is once again based on 1 Kings, chapter 10. The same famous phrase, ‘every desire that she expressed’ was there as well as here. This has led to the idea that Solomon had sex with her to give her a son as smart as he was. Thus some Ethiopians believe that the dynasty of David passed through them via King Solomon. Anyway, it makes for an interesting story. She took back more than she brought. She also returned to her own country with her servants.
