    Clarke's Commentary on 1 Kings 10:2

    She came to Jerusalem with - spices, etc. - Those who contend that she was queen of the Sabaeans, a people of Arabia Felix, towards the southern extremity of the Red Sea, find several proofs of their opinion:

    1. That the Sabaeans abounded in riches and spices.

    India mittit ebur, molles sua thura Sabaei

    "India furnishes ivory, and the effeminate Sabaeans their frankincense."

    Virg. Geor. i., ver. 57.

    And again: -

    Divisae arboribus patriae: sola India nigrum

    Fert ebenum; solis est thurea virga Sabaeis.

    Geor. ii., ver. 116.

    All sorts of trees their several countries know:

    Black ebon only will in India grow;

    And odorous frankincense on the Sabaean bough.

    Dryden.

    - Ubi templum illi centumque Sabaeo Thure calent arae.
