2 Chronicles 9: The Queen of Sheba Visits Solomon

2 Chronicles 9 is a near copy of 1 Kings 10, with the Queen of Sheba paying Solomon a visit.

“When the queen of Sheba heard of Solomon’s fame, she came to Jerusalem to test him with hard questions.” – 2 Chronicles 9:1

Yes, I’m sure these were hard questions. Probably on par with the ‘hard’ questions Fox News asks Republican politicians.

“Solomon answered all her questions; nothing was too hard for him to explain to her.” – 2 Chronicles 9:3

And I guess we’ll never know how hard these questions were.

“King Solomon was greater in riches and wisdom than all the other kings of the earth.” – 2 Chronicles 9:22

I’ve skipped several verses but all literally describe how rich Solomon is. That’s it. Solomon is rich, rich, rich, rich.

“Solomon reigned in Jerusalem over all Israel forty years.” – 2 Chronicles 9:30

Forty years in which God approves of the rich getting richer and the men having multiple wives. A book of morals? BAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Coming Soon: 1 Kings – Chapter 12: Israel Rebels Against Rehoboam
