He kept them in assigned cities and in Jerusalem. 2  10:27 The king made silver as plentiful 3  in Jerusalem as stones; cedar was 4  as plentiful as sycamore fig trees are in the lowlands. 5  10:28 Solomon acquired his horses from Egypt 6  and from Que; the king’s traders purchased them from Que.

3 tn The words “as plentiful” are added for clarification.

4 tn Heb “he made.”

5 tn Heb “as the sycamore fig trees which are in the Shephelah.”

6 sn From Egypt. Because Que is also mentioned, some prefer to see in vv. 28-29 a reference to Mutsur. Que and Mutsur were located in Cilicia/Cappadocia (in modern southern Turkey). See HALOT 625 s.v. מִצְרַיִם.
