2 Chronicles 1:16 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The theophany, cf. 1 Kings 3:5-15. In that night, i.e., on the night succeeding the day of the sacrifice. The appearance of God by night points to a dream, and in 1 Kings 3:5-15 we are expressly informed that He appeared in a vision. Solomon's address to God, 2 Chronicles 1:8-10, is in 1 Kings 3:6-10 given more at length. The mode of expression brings to mind 1 Chronicles 17:23, and recurs in 2 Chronicles 6:17; 1 Kings 8:26. מדּע, with Pathach in the second syllable, elsewhere מדּע (2 Chronicles 1:11, 2 Chronicles 1:12), occurs elsewhere only in Daniel 1:4, Daniel 1:17; Ecclesiastes 10:20.

Solomon [heb] the going forth of the horses which was Solomon's

2 Chronicles 9:28 And they brought to Solomon horses out of Egypt, and out of all lands.

1 Kings 10:28,29 And Solomon had horses brought out of Egypt, and linen yarn: the king's merchants received the linen yarn at a price...

linen yarn The word () mikweh, is regarded by the ancient translators as a proper name: the LXX have () `from Tekoa,' the Vulgate, de Coa, `from Koa,' which is adopted by Dr. Geddes; the Syriac, `from the city Aphelia;' and the Arabic, `ex urbe Australium.' Bochart thinks it signifies a tribute; others suppose that it signifies a string or drove of horses, or as Jarchi says, what the Germans call () a stud; but Houbigant supposes it to be a corruption for mercavah, `chariots.' Our English translation, however, which regards it as synonymous with {tikwah}, seems by far the best. According to Norden, linen yarn is still one of the principal articles of commerce in Egypt, and is exported in very large quantities, together with unmanufactured flax and spun cotton; and Sanutus,

400 years ago, remarked that though Christian countries abounded in flax, yet the goodness of the Egyptian was such, that it was dispersed even to the west.
