9:1
示巴女王听见所罗门的名声,就来到耶路撒冷,要用难解的话试问所罗门。跟随她的人甚多,又有骆驼驮着香料,宝石,和许多金子。她来见了所罗门,就把心里所有的对所罗门都说出来。

But I did not believe what they said until I came and saw with my own eyes. Indeed, not even half the greatness of your wisdom was told me; you have far exceeded the report I heard.
9:7
你的群臣,你的仆人常侍立在你面前听你智慧的话是有福的。
How happy your men must be! How happy your officials, who continually stand before you and hear your wisdom!
9:8
耶和华你的神是应当称颂的。他喜悦你,使你坐他的国位,为耶和华你的神作王。因为你的神爱以色列人,要永远坚立他们,所以立你作他们的王,使你秉公行义。
Praise be to the Lord your God, who has delighted in you and placed you on his throne as king to rule for the Lord your God. Because of the love of your God for Israel and his desire to uphold them forever, he has made you king over them, to maintain justice and righteousness."
