Sheba, queen of
Ruler of the Sabeans (SW Arabia), who visited King Solomon and was impressed by his wisdom (1 Kgs. 10:1 ff.). She may also have had commercial interests in mind. Jesus contrasted her journey ‘from the ends of the earth’ with the indifference to his teaching of his own generation (Matt. 12:42).
