1 Kings 4:21

Context
4:21 (5:1) 1  Solomon ruled all the kingdoms from the Euphrates River 2  to the land of the Philistines, as far as the border of Egypt. These kingdoms paid tribute as Solomon’s subjects throughout his lifetime. 3 

1 sn Beginning with 4:21, the verse numbers through 5:18 in the English Bible differ from the verse numbers in the Hebrew text (BHS), with 4:21 ET = 5:1 HT, 4:22 ET = 5:2 HT, etc., through 5:18 ET = 5:32 HT. Beginning with 6:1 the numbering of verses in the English Bible and the Hebrew text is again the same.

2 tn Heb “the River” (also in v. 24). This is the standard designation for the Euphrates River in biblical Hebrew.

3 tn Heb “[They] were bringing tribute and were serving Solomon all the days of his life.”
