picture Bible commentary

 

All of King Solomon’s drinking cups were made of gold, and all the items in the Forest of Lebanon Palace were made of pure gold, not silver, since even silver wasn’t considered good enough in Solomon’s time! The royal fleet of Tarshish-style ships was at sea with Hiram’s fleet, returning once every three years with gold, silver, ivory, monkeys, and peacocks. King Solomon far exceeded all the earth’s kings in wealth and wisdom. (1 Kings 10.21-23 CEB)
