John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And she said to the king,.... When she was a little come to herself:

it was a true report that I heard in mine own land of thy acts and of thy wisdom; which she was ready to call in question when she first heard it; at least she thought it was greatly exaggerated, but now she found it was strictly true.

[See on 2 Chronicles 9:4.]

Ver. 6. Of thy acts.] Or, Sayings. True wisdom will prompt a man both to say well and do well. Solomon might better boast than Cicero (a) did of his optimarum artium scientia, et maximature rerum gloria.
