The three Hebrew words so rendered imply a queen-regnant, queen-consort, and queen-mother, with a dignity very like that of the present day (1 Kings 2:19; 10:1; 15:1319Bath-sheba therefore went unto king Solomon, to speak unto him for Adonijah.

; Esther 1:9; 2:179Also Vashti the queen made a feast for the women in the royal house which belonged to king Ahasuerus. (Esther 1:9)
