Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary
The Scriptures in various parts speak of those men. We meet with them Job 1:15. And it is very probable that by the men of Sheba is meant the same. (Psalms 72:10; 1 Kings 10:1-2) In the writings of Isaiah they are spoken of as men of stature. (Isaiah 45:14) But who they are, or to what purpose designed, there is no mention. It is a blessed thought however, what is said, Psalms 72:1-20 throughout, concerning the ultimate extension and prosperity of the Redeemer's kingdom "when the kings of Sheba and of Seba shall offer gifts; yea, when all kings shall fall down before him, all nations shall serve him." (Psalms 72:10-11) Oh, what wonders will by and by break out in the earth, when from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same Jesus's name shall be great among the Gentiles, and in every place incense shall be offered unto his name and a pure offering! (Malachi 1:11)
