The Queen of Sheba went to see the wealth and wisdom of Solomon, and he did not disappoint. Consider what the Bible says,
Also, the ships of Hiram, which brought gold from Ophir, brought great quantities of almug wood and precious stones from Ophir. And the king made steps of the almug wood for the house of the Lord and for the king’s house, also harps and stringed instruments for singers. There never again came such almug wood, nor has the like been seen to this day. Now King Solomon gave the queen of Sheba all she desired, whatever she asked, besides what Solomon had given her according to the royal generosity. So she turned and went to her own country, she and her servants (1 Kings 10.11–13).
She also gave him things. He answered her questions, and evidently did some trading with her. Solomon knew that God had given him all these things, and he freely gave.
