And when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon, she came to prove Solomon with hard questions at Jerusalem, with a very great company, and camels that bare spices, and gold in abundance, and precious stones: and when she was come to Solomon, she communed with him of all that was in her heart.

As tra va ben-reïn Sheba er vakin creenaght Solomon, as y thie v'eh er hroggal,

And when the queen of Sheba had seen the wisdom of Solomon, and the house that he had built,

And the meat of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the attendance of his ministers, and their apparel; his cupbearers also, and their apparel; and his ascent by which he went up into the house of the Lord; there was no more spirit in her.


As dooyrt ee rish y ree, Spheer va'n goo cheayll mee ayns my heer hene, mychione dty obbraghyn, as dty chreenaght:

And she said to the king, It was a true report which I heard in mine own land of thine acts, and of thy wisdom:


Ny-yeih, cha chred mee ny goan oc, derrey haink mee hene, as dy vel my hooillyn er vakin eh: as cur-my-ner, cha row'n derrey lieh jeh mooads dty chreenaght inshit dou: son t'ou foddey erskyn y goo cheayll mee jeed.

Howbeit I believed not their words, until I came, and mine eyes had seen it: and, behold, the one half of the greatness of thy wisdom was not told me: for thou exceedest the fame that I heard.


S'maynrey dty gheiney, as s'maynrey ad shoh dty harvaantyn, ta shassoo dy kinjagh kiongoyrt rhyt, as clashtyn dty chreenaght.

Happy are thy men, and happy are these thy servants, which stand continually before thee, and hear thy wisdom.

Blessed be the Lord thy God, which delighted in thee to set thee on his throne, to be king for the Lord thy God: because thy God loved Israel, to establish them for ever, therefore made he thee king over them, to do judgment and justice.
