The Visit Of The Queen Of Sheba

11 Hiram's ships that brought gold from Ophir, also brought from Ophir lots of algum wood and precious stones. 12 The king used the algum wood to have supports made for the LORD's Temple and for the royal palace, as well as lyres and harps for the choir, and nothing like that wood has ever come again or even been seen since right to this day. 13 In return, King Solomon gave the queen of Sheba everything she wanted and had requested in addition to what he had given her consistent with his generosity. Afterward, she returned to her own land with her servants.
