And Solomon had under him all the kingdoms from the river to the land of the Philistines,. even to the border of Egypt: and they brought him presents, and served him, all the days of his life.

22

And the provision of Solomon for each day was thirty measures of fine flour, and threescore measures of meal,

23

Ten fat oxen and twenty out of the pastures, and a hundred rams, besides venison of harts, roes, and buffles, and fatted fowls.

28

They brought barley also and straw for the horses, and beasts, to the place where the king was, according as it was appointed them.

And the wisdom of Solomon surpassed the wisdom of all the Orientals, and of the Egyptians,

31

And he was wiser than all men: wiser than Ethan the Ezrahite, and Heman, and Chalcol, and Dorda the sons of Mahol, and he was renowned in all nations round about.

Solomon also spoke three thousand parables: and his poems were a thousand and five.
