Solomon and Sheba CD1
This is the borderland that lies between the countries of Egypt and Israel.
As it is today, so it was 1,000 years before the birth of Jesus of Nazareth.
Even then, these boundaries were kept ablaze
with the fires of hatred and conflict.
Each side prided themselves on the efficiency of their spies
but kept themselves always on the alert.
Soldiers of David, commanded by his son and heir Adonijah, prince of Israel.
- A chariot moving along the road. - Stop the fool, whoever he is.
- Prince Solomon. - Is my brother here?
Prince Adonijah is at the top of the hill. Follow me.
Solomon! What are you doing here?
On my way to Jerusalem, we got word the Egyptians were on the prowl again.
I thought you might need some help.
You are better suited to singing songs than exploits in battle.
Our father David was a singer of songs, but he's also a mighty warrior.
- Where are the Egyptians? - They thought to trap me,
to rush in on our camp and kill us while we slept, but we're not sleeping.
Give me your orders.
This is not your kind of game, brother.
I never thought of it as a game. I fight by your side.
- Then the sword of victory, Solomon. - And the shield of God, Adonijah.
Spread out, and kill them all.
- Now we attack. - Attack.
Sound the retreat.
Once again, the Pharaoh will have reason to remember the name of Adonijah.
Let him write it in the blood of his dead.
Too long this soil has been bathed in blood.
Have you lost your taste for blood now that the battle is over?
After seeing the glory of victory,
the glory of peace makes itself known.
Peace is for women and children.
Let me cleanse my mouth of the stench of the Egyptians.
To a new victory won by the Prince of Israel.
- To the warrior prince, Adonijah. - To Adonijah.
To your glory, brother. May it increase the glory of Israel.
There would be greater glory if I were not shackled by command of my father.
Defend but never attack.
When I am king, there will be no privileged sanctuaries for my enemies.
I'll pursue them into their own cities.
- We'll hunt them down like dogs. - We'll rout them out.
Highness, this one was found among the dead, but he is no Egyptian.
Put him down.
The Pharaoh has mercenaries, but I have never seen one like him.
- From where do you come? - I have the honour to serve Her Majesty.
- The Queen of Sheba. - The Queen of Sheba?
We're a long way from the land of Sheba. 800 leagues.
Where goes the Queen of Sheba there go I, a soldier of her guard.
Why does a Sheban fight with Egyptians against Israel?
I fight where my queen commands.
And it pleased my queen to lead her troops against a band of barbarians.
I'll send your hide to this brave queen of yours as a token of my esteem.
No. Grant him the respect one soldier should have for another.
Bind up his wounds.
So spare him.
Out of regard for the tender heart of my dear brother.
This queen amuses herself by leading men across our borders
to slay Israelites as she might attend a circus.
I doubt if she found much amusement here.
What brings the king's chancellor here? More orders?
No, Highness. If that were so, mine would be a far happier mission.
Your father, King David, lies at the point of death.
He lapsed into a coma and has not regained consciousness.
His physicians could give me no word of hope to bring you.
Josiah, we ride to Jerusalem.
- Hail Adonijah, King of Israel. - Hail Adonijah. Hail the king.
It is not your right to proclaim the king. These are the words of the Law:
"He shall be anointed with the waters of Gihon
and crowned in the presence of the priest and the elders of the tribes."
Your law may be the Word, Chancellor. Mine is the sword.
And why do you remain silent? Am I not David's rightful heir?
- Your first thought is not for our father? - Life is for the living.
When I know David is no longer living, I will be the first to acknowledge you.
I will follow you, Highness.
We could reach Jerusalem by dawn tomorrow.
Let Solomon concern himself with the dead. My thoughts are for the living.
I have business with this Sheban queen.
We must ride fast to overtake her.
In Israel, I give the orders.
I regret that we did not meet last night when you visited my encampment.
Who are you?
- The king of Israel. - He lies.
Whoever he is, he is an impostor.
The king is an old man, weak with the burden of his years.
Is that why you thought it safe to join forces with the Egyptians?
Give me leave, and I will clear them from the road.
You think you could do better now than you did last night?
David lies dead in Jerusalem. I, Adonijah, am his heir.
- We want no dealings with the Israelites. - Let him speak, Baltor.
- What favour do you seek of me? - If we were dealing in favours,
- I could bring you the heads of your dead. - Kill him!
- Your own head is not too secure. - Silence, Haran.
I pursued you not to ask favours but to grant them.
And what favour could an Israelite grant the Queen of Sheba?
A kingdom twice as large as she now rules.
Renounce your alliance with the Pharaoh. Let your banners fly beside mine.
When I have overthrown him, I will give you all his lands that border on your own.
And if I refuse your generosity?
Then I will hurl you down into the same dust that will choke the Pharaoh.
Yours is the choice. Glory with Israel, or disaster with Egypt.
My ancestors sat upon the throne of a great country
when yours still crawled on their hands and knees, feeding on insects.
- Is that your answer? - This is my answer.
Hail the king of Israel!
- Am I in time, Abishag? - He still lives.
Your mother and I have been constantly by his side.
- We must have hope. - My prayers have been answered.
That you are here while your father is able to give you his blessing.
- Mother. - My son.
Do not despair.
- Is there hope? - His heart still beats,
but his breath is so quenched that it leaves no mist upon the metal.
My father. My king.
Let my prayers call you back from the shadows.
Solomon, peace of the Lord.
In my dream, your face was ever before me.
Now I am here, Father.
- Where is your brother? - Adonijah was detained with his troops.
Ever the soldier, before all else.
Send messages with my command that he return.
It will be done.
Now rest until your strength returns.
- Bring me Nathan the prophet. - I am here, O King.
Summon the elders of the 12 tribes and the council.
I have had a vision from God.
You've been summoned at the king's command. Hear the words of the king.
Has there been no report from the couriers sent to bring Adonijah?
No, sire, none have returned.
Then I must act without him.
40 years I have reigned over you,
and I have been your father and you my beloved children.
Excepting the memory of me which will live in your hearts,
I leave but one monument to my name: The unity of Israel.
Symbol of the 12 tribes, once separate, each striving for dominance,
but now you, the elders of the tribes, stand before me, banded together,
in an indestructible oneness.
You were the last to lead your tribe into the union, Ahab.
And as a pledge of your loyalty, you brought me your only child, Abishag.
I have loved and cherished her as my own daughter,
as I have loved and cherished Israel,
of which she has become the living symbol.
She has been an honour to my house.
And to the household of David.
My day is almost done.
But the day of Israel has hardly dawned.
It is well that I make room for another to follow after me on this throne.
No, you stay the king.
- His Highness, Prince Adonijah. - Adonijah?
Sire, I have driven like a fury to attend this council
ever since your command reached me.
Behold the two halves of me.
And the poet.
I have loved you both dearly.
- Is there any jealousy between you? - No, sire.
Jealousy of what? Have I a desire to distinguish myself as a scholar?
It is Adonijah's destiny to rule, and I will truly serve him.
It is God who decrees the destinies of his creatures, my son.
As I lay close to death,
out of the darkness a great voice called to me and said
"I am the Lord thy God, who placed thee upon the throne."
"And this I declare unto you:
Only in peace can Israel prosper and be made great, not in strife."
And again, the Lord God Jehovah spoke to his servant David:
"Behold, a son has been born unto thee, a man of peace."
"Wherefore, thou hast named him Solomon."
"And I will establish his kingdom for ever."
- The kingdom is mine! - God wills it otherwise.
You made good use of your time alone with him.
You used his weakness against me.
- I knew nothing of this. - You lie.
- You were always a weaver of words. - You accuse him falsely.
After you've chosen him over me? Theirs should be the choice.
- Let them choose. - Aye, hear us.
- Adonijah. - Adonijah.
- You, the elders, what say you? - Accept the will of God.
- The crown is mine. I shall fight for it. - Adonijah is the rightful heir.
Act not with violence lest the wrath of God fall upon you.
I have never done anything to deprive you.
Words from the mouth of a hypocrite.
Isn't yours the act of a hypocrite in coming to greet your father?
You who proclaimed yourself king even though you knew David lived.
Has Hezrai spoken truly?
I did not know that you had sent him to spy on me.
Could you not wait until the breath left my body?
- I am weary with waiting. - The king must respect and obey the law.
In proclaiming yourself, you have violated the law of God and man.
I claimed what was mine by right, and I shall never relinquish that right.
How long will it take them to discover his incompetence?
Solomon king? Lmpossible.
Now it is revealed out of the mouth of Adonijah himself
why God hath turned his face from him.
The wisdom of God passeth all understanding.
As it is written, so let it be done.
Bring forth the waters of Gihon
and here, as God commands,
anoint Solomon king of Israel.
- By the grace of God. - By the grace of God.
Yield, Adonijah. Yield and bend the knee in the name of God.
Never! Rather would I bend knee to the Pharaoh
than to this brother who has robbed me of my birthright!
Then hold high the tablet of unity before his eyes
so that he may ever remember the purpose of his consecration.
by the grace of God, king of Israel.
Hail Solomon, by the grace of God, king of Israel.
Turn not against thy brother, Solomon.
His blood is hot, but it will cool.
You have my pledge, sire.
I will never forget that he is my brother.
And you, my child, will you remain in the king's household,
or will you return to Gilead with your father Ahab?
When I was brought to the house of David, my people sang songs of gladness,
and I came with joy in my heart.
With the same joy, I will remain within the house of Solomon.
One thing remains heavy on my heart.
In my youth, I dreamed that I would build a mighty temple
to house the Ark of the Covenant.
But I sinned greatly,
and was not fit to erect the habitation of the Lord.
Redeem my vow, my son.
Pledge me that you will build the great temple of which I had dreamed
so that God will have his dwelling place among his people.
I promise you it shall be built.
Be strong and of good courage.
nor be dismayed.
O Lord, my God,
thou hast made thy servant king instead of David, my father,
and I am no more than a little child.
Give therefore unto thy servant an understanding heart
that I may judge thy people,
that I may discern between good and evil,
for who is able to judge this, thy so great a people?
Because thou hast asked this thing
and hast not asked for thyself long life, nor riches for thyself,
nor the life of thine enemies,
but hast asked for understanding to discern judgement.
Behold, I have done according to thy words.
I have given unto thee a wise and understanding heart.
And if thou wilt walk in my ways,
keeping my statutes and my commandments,
I will give unto thee both riches and honour
so there shall not be among the kings of the earth
any like unto thee in all thy days.
- Not good enough. - No?
With you, I am seldom good enough. Double the wager.
I should have killed him when he was chosen king.
Patience, Highness. Wait.
- I am not a patient man. - I am aware of that.
Leave us, Joab.
Did you not hear His Majesty, Joab? Obey his command.
For a man whose wisdom is becoming the marvel of the land,
you show a surprising lack of it by coming here alone.
I have come to ask a favour of you.
Knowing that this hand of mine must ache to drive this spear through your body?
I know what is in your heart.
All I ask is that you love your country as much as you hate me.
That would make me the greatest patriot in the history of Israel.
David has laid a great burden upon me.
To rule the kingdom and to build the temple, both of which I have undertaken.
But you have elected to remain here in your lodge,
depriving the people of your great talent as a soldier and a commander.
To build is not enough.
What has been built must be defended against all the enemies of the nation.
For that task, you are far better suited than I.
Return to Jerusalem,
offer your services, not to me, but to your country and your God.
You are offering me command of the army?
Even though I might try to use it against you?
I am trying to decide if you are the wisest of the wise,
or the fool of fools.
So Solomon walked in the way of his God,
and through a long era of peace, Israel grew and prospered.
With the completion of the temple,
Solomon had fulfilled a most sacred pledge to his father.
Solomon, king over Israel.
Lord God of Israel, there is no god like thee.
Heaven of heavens cannot contain thee,
how much less this house that I have builded unto thy name?
Yet hear thy servant and his supplication,
and let thy word be verified which thou spakest unto my father David.
And of thy people Israel, when they shall pray towards this place,
hear thou in heaven, and when thou hearest, forgive.
For they be thy people as this house is thine,
that all the earth may know the Lord is God.
There is none else.
Come and join us, Baltor. I am teaching my bird to obey.
Takyan disapproves. I need an ally.
That is exactly what the Pharaoh is complaining about.
The Pharaoh is complaining? We will have to teach him.
Another message has just arrived from Egypt.
- Let it wait. - But it is a serious matter.
The Pharaoh has called a conference of all the kings.
Sit down, Baltor. You make Tokki nervous.
A deeper shade, Takyan.
Pomegranate. That is the right colour.
What is the problem this time?
Your Majesty, the problem is the Israelites.
They proclaim peace yet strengthen their army, and for what purpose?
They are afraid of the Pharaoh, perhaps.
What have we to fear?
In spite of our eternal hatred, we now have friendly relations with Israel.
True, but our security is threatened.
Almost fanatically they support their great King Solomon.
A dreamer. A man of peace.
But a man of ideas, and there is nothing more dangerous than a man with an idea.
- The threat is real? - Very real.
Solomon's threat is not only his army, but his god.
His god? We have a hundred gods.
This is one god who teaches that all men are equal and none are slaves.
What a foolish idea.
And yet... if that idea were to take hold of the people,
the Queen of Sheba would soon come crashing down from her throne.
As would all other absolute monarchs.
Therefore I strongly advise Your Majesty to attend this conference.
You see, Baltor? To catch the bird, first bait the trap.
Perhaps we can help the Pharaoh solve the problem of Solomon,
and kill two birds with one stone.
Since Solomon came to the throne of Israel, I've watched his strength grow
until now his power has become a threat to my borders.
And the wealth and trade which once came to us now finds its way to him.
For too long we have delayed plans for his destruction.
- Yes, take up arms against him. - Raise a great host.
- Trample Israel into the dust. - King Eglon.
- From Moab, I want 1,000 chariots. - I will send you 2,000.
Kaldu, from Chaldea you will send me 5,000 archers.
- More if they are needed. - We will attack exactly as I have planned.
From the north, the east and the south, at the same time, by surprise.
They will not know how or where to make a defence.
- We will drive them into the sea. - And Sheba.
What force will you send against Solomon?
Why? Are you not my ally?
We must put an end to Israel, and with it this dangerous idea of one god.
You talk of war. How can you destroy an idea, a faith,
with the point of your spears?
There is only one way it can be done.
What do you suggest? Have you a plan?
But for every plan, there is a price.
What do you want this time?
The port of Melish on the Red Sea in return for the downfall of Solomon.
- That is impossible. - Melish is my port.
This time you ask for too much, Sheba.
Tell me, what would be the cost of a war against Israel?
You know very well.
And I offer you a plan almost without cost.
His Majesty hesitates, Baltor.
Perhaps we should return to Sheba rather than to visit Jerusalem.
I grant it.
- And how will you destroy Solomon? - It is said that Solomon is wise.
But no matter how wise a man may be,
he is still human, with a human weakness.
I will sit at the feet of Solomon like the wise men who flock to Jerusalem.
And perhaps I will learn from his own lips the way to destroy him.
Truly, the way of a woman is beyond our understanding.
The way of a woman is simple, my lord.
It is always to follow the way of a man.
I shall keep myself informed of your progress in Jerusalem.
Mother! Come! Look! Mother!
My compliments. I am Benaiah, sent to escort you into Jerusalem.
Greetings. Her Majesty the Queen of Sheba.
Your Majesty, the king of Israel wishes me to convey his greetings to you.
Truly, your king has built nobly.
There is no such splendour, even in Egypt.
And all that for a god he cannot even see.
Do you think she will be as beautiful as we have heard?
This is something I never thought to see, a pagan welcomed to Israel.
How can a pagan be converted to the true God unless she knows him?
We must never forget she is an ally of Egypt.
Because she is an ally of Egypt, we must show her our unity and our strength.
Let us offer her our friendship in the hope that we have one less enemy.
She is very beautiful, isn't she?
Your Royal Majesty.
Permit me to present my sovereign, Her Royal Majesty, the Queen of Sheba.
Israel extends a warm welcome to Your Majesty.
I am grateful for your permission to visit your beautiful country.
After so much travelling, you must be pleased to have reached your destination.
If I had travelled ten times the distance it would be forgotten
in the face of the marvels I have seen,
and in the splendour of your city of Jerusalem.
If it pleases you, we can dispense with ceremony and let you rest.
You are most considerate.
But first, let me offer a token of my appreciation
for the kindness you have shown to a stranger within your gates.
- Baltor. - Haran!
- So many gifts. - Yes, and brought from so far.
I have no adequate words to express my thanks and the gratitude of my people.
Along with them, I offer my hand
in the hope that this day will mark the beginning of a closer friendship
between Israel and Sheba.
That would be the most welcome gift of all.
Benaiah, do you suppose the land of the Shebans is always like this?
I would think so, yes.
We must not keep the queen waiting.
A message for your queen.
Her Majesty the Queen.
His Majesty King Solomon sends his greetings
and has commanded me - has commanded us -
to inform Your Majesty that in response to Your Majesty's request
he will be most happy to receive you in private audience.
He is most gracious.
How thoughtful of the king to send so charming an envoy.
He doesn't know I'm here.
I was so anxious to come.
Then I am even more pleased. Come in.
You are the first of His Majesty's court to visit me.
How interesting your encampment is.
Are your people always so carefree and gay?
We enjoy life and pleasure.
- Don't you? - Yes, we do.
But we are an austere people. We tend to be more serious.
And your king. Is he also serious?
King Solomon has a great responsibility.
He must maintain the unity of our 12 tribes.
It is very important, this unity?
Oh, yes. Without it, there would be no Israel.
The gods of Sheba. Mal-Ra, the guardian of destiny.
Kol, god of the sun and stars.
Rama, who sends the rain.
We have many gods.
In Israel, we have one god.
When he fails you, do you blame him for everything?
He never fails us.
You must find it gratifying to be so close to your king.
Are you his sister, perhaps?
Sometimes he calls me that. We have been very close to each other,
ever since I came to live in the house of his father.
Do you stay long in Israel?
That depends upon your king.
You are charming. Innocent.
And you fulfil all my expectations.
From the land of Sheba.
A gift from its queen.
This Solomon the Almighty...
20 men surrounding him, and he calls it a private audience.
- He has entertained you royally... - And those state banquets!
I at one end, he at the other.
And in between us, a lot of sour-faced old men.
Not once have I been with him alone. Not once.
But we have only been here five days.
This Solomon is more difficult to approach than the Pharaoh of Egypt.
This great king has time for everything, except the time for being a man.
Send him to me, Rha-Gon, god of love.
Make me the most desirable of women.
Make my lips sweet as honey,
my skin soft and fragrant like the petals of a flower.
Give him to me.
I want him at my feet.
Your Majesty has a royal visitor.
Her Majesty and I have met before.
My apologies to Your Majesty.
I regret that I was unable to be at the reception to welcome you.
Had you been there, it would have made my welcome complete.
Your Majesty is gracious. Rather different from the occasion of your last visit.
If I remember rightly, Your Highness was then a king.
Yes. And as a king, I offered you an alliance against the Pharaoh.
And my answer was not too kind.
So I remember.
This time I venture to offer you another alliance.
Do you come as envoy from the king of Israel?
I come as Adonijah, rightful heir to the throne of Israel.
An alliance between us could give us many things we both desire.
Do you want Sheban arms to help you usurp your brother's throne?
Solomon is the usurper.
Once I am on the throne, our lands could encircle Egypt,
and all of the kings would be at our mercy.
Why should I want them at my mercy?
I maintain good relations with the kings.
And King Solomon is my friend.
So how could your offer possibly interest me?
Has the screaming eagle been transformed into a cooing dove?
How dull the world would be if people never changed.
I am wiser, Prince Adonijah.
I no longer do battle with a sword.
That's why I find your visit so disturbing.
I find it difficult to believe that you come bearing an olive branch of peace.
What else could I bring to King Solomon, who is a man of peace?
Your Majesty, it is clear that I waste your time as well as mine.
With Your Majesty's permission...
I think I understood you better as the screaming eagle.
He is still a dog.
Let the women in judgement come forward.
Never before has an alien sat beside our king in judgement.
Her presence profanes all Israel.
Who makes complaint?
My Lord King, this woman Leah and I dwell within the same house.
I was delivered of a child.
On the third day after I was delivered, she was delivered also.
There was no one in the house but we two.
In the night, this woman's child died because she lay upon it,
wherefore she removed my son from beside me while I slept
and laid her dead child against my bosom.
- She lies. - Silence.
And when I rose in the morning to nurse my child, he was dead.
- Not so, Lord Solomon. - The truth, Lord King.
For when I looked at the child in my arms, I knew it was not the son that I did bear.
- It was her own child and none other. - The living child is mine.
- The dead is yours, the living mine. - Bring the infant forward.
Place the child on the steps before me and show him to me.
Draw your sword, Josiah.
Divide the child into two parts.
Give half to the one woman, half to the other.
If it must be,
give the child to her that it may not be slain.
Divide it. It should be neither hers nor mine.
Take your son, mother. He is surely yours.
May the Lord God Jehovah praise and bless you.
You would rather have surrendered him to another than to see him harmed.
And take this woman hence
and administer to her punishment to fit her perjury.
She lies. She lies.
It's not right. The child is mine.
Now, at last, I have seen a judgement of Solomon,
and your wisdom amazes me.
Whatever wisdom has been given me, it was for the benefit of my people.
Continue to teach me, I beg of you,
so that I may gain a greater insight into the wonder of your understanding.
It will enable me to become a better and wiser ruler over my own people.
Real wisdom lies in the ability to decide between the true and the false.
Can you believe that only four years ago, all this was barren desert?
You have such a joy in all you have accomplished.
It is a joy to make the desert bloom by bringing water from the mountains.
You have made this into a paradise.
The water, the work, the warmth of the sun have done it, not I.
In the last few days, I have shown you much of Israel.
But you have not told me anything of your own country.
At this moment, my own land seems as distant as the stars.
In my youth, I used to dream of visiting all the faraway kingdoms of the earth.
And now instead, the rulers of those countries come to you.
You rule Sheba alone.
From the beginning of time, only queens have ruled in Sheba.
That is our law.
I would be happy to tell Your Majesty many things concerning my country
if I were sure it would be of interest to you.
Why do you say that?
Because after all the times I have visited you,
you have not returned the compliment by visiting my encampment.
Perhaps I was waiting for an invitation.
You promise to accept?
I am so happy that at last you have come to visit me.
My people feel honoured.
It is your guest who feels honoured.
You are not bored by our primitive pastimes?
No, it interests me to learn what amuses you.
If I do not prevent it, my people would stay and stare at you.
The way I stare at you?
This is the hour of Rha-Gon.
Every evening, I make an offering to him.
Rha-Gon, giver of life, god of love,
accept this token of my gratitude and devotion.
The Feast of Rha-Gon is the most sacred rite
celebrated each year in the land of Sheba.
But tonight let there be no talk of gods.
Not even of wisdom.
And there is Sheban wine to warm the heart.
My offering to you.
Tonight, we are alone in a different world.
Yes, we are in a different world.
Is not the wine to your taste, my Lord?
It almost made me forget that you are an ally of the Pharaoh.
An enemy of Israel.
Your Majesty, everything is prepared for tonight.
I chose this one.
Mmm. Attar of roses. I love it.
- The king's favourite scent. - How do you know?
The women of his harem told me.
I don't want to remind him of other women.
What else have you heard?
They complain of Solomon's neglect of them.
There is no reason to be jealous of me as yet.
In spite of the way he left, he must have had difficulty forgetting you.
Tonight, I will make it even more difficult.
He may still come, Majesty. It is not yet midnight.
Do I need you to tell me the time?
Take it away. Get it out of my sight.
How dare he treat me this way!
What does he think I am? Just another cat in his royal cage?!
I don't care if he never comes!
Weren't you supposed to dine with her?
- Yes, I was. - Then why are you sitting here alone?
I felt in need of being alone.
What is it that weighs so heavily upon your heart?
Has it come to where you can read my thoughts?
Haven't I always shared your thoughts?
At times, a man feels drawn toward the dangers that confront him,
even at the risk of his own destruction.
Like a moth approaches a flame.
Is there something different about this flame?
I could put it out in one second.
- Wouldn't that be simpler? - Such a little flame, Abishag.
And yet unrestrained, it could destroy all of Jerusalem.
but perhaps without it, there would be darkness.
In light or in darkness, you've only to reach for my hand.
I'll be at your side always.
- Good night. - Good night.
- His Majesty. - His Majesty.
Her Majesty awaited you until after midnight and then she retired.
- I'm sorry. - Takyan, admit His Majesty.
I have disturbed your rest.
Could I rest, thinking that perhaps I had displeased you in some way?
Now you have to be completely truthful with me.
Why did you come to Jerusalem?
Why do you ask me such a question now?
Because I know that behind those lovely eyes is the brain of a very clever woman
who would never have travelled 800 leagues without a purpose.
You have found me out.
I will confess to you.
The Pharaoh is paying me a fabulous price to spy on you.
To deliver to him all of your secrets.
I have considered that, but Israel has no real secrets from Egypt.
Pharaoh is aware of our weaknesses and our strength.
How could I hope to deceive you?
I have been trying to entrap you.
To bind you to me in soft chains so that I may do with you as I will.
Now perhaps we are approaching the truth.
Every woman exacts her price from a man.
You're a queen, but you also demand a price.
I do. So great that I wonder if you will pay it.
I want you to love me wholly, completely,
and that love to be the most precious thing in your life.
I hope it is true,
but if it is not, then let me remain blind to the truth.
Even when you are not with me, I find myself trying to recall
every moment we have spent together.
The words you have said to me, I will never forget.
After what has come to pass between us, new words keep singing in my heart.
- Tell them to me. - Behold, thou art fair, my love.
Thine eyes are as doves, thy lips are as pomegranates.
How much better is thy love than wine.
I have never before known such happiness.
Nor I, and if I have thought I was happy, I know now that I was deceived.
You look like two birds who have hatched out a nestful of snakes.
You may speak freely. I have no secrets from Joab.
We have come to take counsel with Your Highness.
About what? I am the commander of the host, not a minister of state.
It concerns the king.
- Then why not consult with him? - Because he will not listen.
Grave criticism is being brought against him by people.
Who would dare to murmur against the great Solomon?
His association with the Sheban queen has developed into an open scandal.
Worse, he has even brought this pagan woman to live within the palace,
daring to install her in an apartment adjoining his own private chambers.
That is his affair, not mine.
We thought perhaps if you were to talk to him privately, reason with him.
Point out that it is a matter of concern not only to the high priest
but to the prophet and the council.
I, presume to admonish His Majesty?
You forget, Hezrai, he is the king. The king can do no wrong.
Well, something must be done.
Not by me. You are his chancellor, Hezrai, and you his high priest, Zadok.
You do something. You reason with him.
We had hoped for the cooperation of Your Highness.
You have it. My sympathies and my best wishes.
We thank you for receiving us.
Not at all, not at all.
Always at your service.
It could not have served your interests better if you had arranged her visit.
The priesthood is aroused against him. The council condemns him.
Even the people talk openly of his shame.
Your Highness is reflecting my own thoughts.
