2 Chronicles 8:2-6

8:2 Solomon rebuilt the cities that Huram 1  had given him and settled Israelites there. 8:3 Solomon went to Hamath Zobah and seized it. 8:4 He built up Tadmor in the wilderness and all the storage cities he had built in Hamath. 8:5 He made upper Beth Horon and lower Beth Horon fortified cities with walls and barred gates, 2  8:6 and built up Baalath, all the storage cities that belonged to him, 3  and all the cities where chariots and horses were kept. 4  He built whatever he wanted in Jerusalem, 5  Lebanon, and throughout his entire kingdom. 6 

1 tn Heb “Huram” (also in v. 18). Some medieval Hebrew mss, along with the LXX, Syriac, and Vulgate spell the name “Hiram,” agreeing with 1 Chr 14:1. “Huram” is a variant spelling referring to the same individual.

2 tn Heb “and he built…[as] cities of fortification, [with] walls, doors, and a bar.”

3 tn Heb “Solomon.” The recurrence of the proper name is unexpected in terms of contemporary English style, so the pronoun has been used in the translation instead.

4 tn Heb “the cities of the chariots and the cities of the horses.”
