183. When the queen of Sheba came to Solomon, ONE of the things that she asked Solomon WAS, How do you catch a bone of a snake that contains three sorceries? Instantly, "there was not anything hid from the king, which he told her not" (I Melachim 10:3). She asked about this and she required these snakes, but she could not capture one of them. What did he respond to her about these things she harbored in at her heart, AS IT SAYS, "SHE SPOKE TO HIM OF ALL THAT WAS IN HER HEART" (Ibid. 2)? This is what he informed her, as it says, "And Solomon answered her all her questions" (Ibid. 3). HE SAID, None of the world's inhabitants have power against those snakes, except for one secret thing. What is it? It is boiling hot semen.
184. If you wonder who has the power, it is only when a man is full of desire and he issues that semen that is expelled with the lustful desire for the purpose of defeating that snake. When it spurts out in boiling heat, it is captured immediately in a garment, and that garment is thrown onto the snake. Instantly, it bows down its head and is caught, like a domesticated rooster is caught. EVEN if all battle gear are prepared against one of them, it would not be successful. But when you do this, there is no need for any person in the world to use weapons, or any other thing, and he does not need to be constantly on watch against them, because they all become subservient to him. Then these words touched the heart OF THE QUEEN OF SHEBA, and she desired it.
