Solomons wealth

  1. 1Ki 10:14

    And the weight of gold which came to Solomon in one year was six hundred sixty-six talents of gold, (MKJV).

    1Ki 10:14
    Solomon received about twenty-five tons of gold a year. (CEV).
    In today's monetary value this is about 1.2 billion US Dollars per year!

    This is just a portion of what he recieved!
  2. I can surly use a tad bit of that :)
  3. I would settle for just one of the hundreds of gold shields he made :)
  4. Surely this must have been danger money for having 700 wives, 300 concubines etc. :eek:
  5. Probably needed that much to support them all!


  6. Unfortunately they were the reason his kingdom was divided after his death :(

    The entire inside of the Temple was covered with Gold - can you imagine the splendour!
