Solomon greeting the Queen of Sheba – gate of Florence Baptistry


" Let us therefore lie in wait for the just, because he is not of our turn, and he is contrary to our doings, and upbraideth us with transgressions of the law, and divulgeth against us the sins of our way of life. He boasteth that he hath the knowledge of God, and calleth himself the Son of God. lie is become a censurer of our thoughts. He is grievous unto us even to behold, for his life is not like other men's, and his ways are very different. We are esteemed by him as triflers, and he abstaineth from our ways, as from filthiness, and he prefereth the latter end of the just, and glorieth that he hath God for his Father. Let us see if his words be true, and let us prove what shall happen to him, and we shall know what his end shall be. For if he be the true Son of God, he will defend him, and will deliver him from the hands of his enemies. Let us examine him by outrages, and tortures, that we may know his weakness, and try his patience. Let us condemn him to a most shameful death, for there shall be respect had unto him by his words. These things they thought, and were deceived, for malice blinded them. And they knew not the secrets of God, nor hoped for the wages of justice."
