And before Solomon were marshalled his hosts,- of Jinns and men and birds, and they were all kept in order and ranks

Besides the literal meaning, there are two
symbolical meanings.

  1. All his subjects of varying grades of intelligence,
    taste, and civilization, were kept in due order and
    cooperation, by his discipline, justice, and good
    government.
  2. The gifts of various kinds, which he possessed (see
    last note), he used in proper order and coordination,
    as if they were a well disciplined army, thus getting
    the best possible results from them
