Piece Of Gold

PIECE OF GOLD [SMITH]

The rendering "pieces of gold," as in (2 Kings 5:5) is very doubtful; and "shekels of gold") as designating the value of the whole quantity, not individual pieces is preferable. Coined money was unknown in Palestine till the Persian period.

PIECE OF GOLD [ISBE]

PIECE OF GOLD - The word "pieces" is supplied in 2 Ki 5:5 (story of Naaman), "6,000 pieces of gold," where the Revised Version margin more correctly suggests "shekels" (compare 1 Ki 10:16).

See MONEY.
