The gold of King Solomon (2 Chr 9:13-9:14)

“The weight of gold that came to King Solomon in one year was six hundred sixty-six talents of gold, besides that which the traders and the merchants brought. All the kings of Arabia and the governors of the land brought gold and silver to King Solomon.

Once again, based on 1 Kings, chapter 10, we find out about the richness of King Solomon. He had a lot of gold, based on the weight and value of 666 talents of gold, about 3 billion dollars USA, $3,000,000,000.00. This did not include all the gold that was given to him from various kings, merchants and governors. He was a very rich man. It is interesting to note that some Christians have taken the number 666 to be some sort of demonic force. Here it is the amount of talents of gold that Solomon got. I guess you might say that the gold is demonic.
