2 Chronicles 9:21

Context
9:21 The king had a fleet of large merchant ships 1  manned by Huram’s men 2  that sailed the sea. Once every three years the fleet 3  came into port with cargoes of 4  gold, silver, ivory, apes, and peacocks. 5 

2 Chronicles 20:36-37

Context
20:36 They agreed 6  to make large seagoing merchant ships; 7  they built the ships in Ezion Geber. 20:37 Eliezer son of Dodavahu from Mareshah prophesied against Jehoshaphat, “Because 8  you made an alliance with Ahaziah, the Lord will shatter what you have made.” The ships were wrecked and unable to go to sea. 9 

1 tn Heb “for ships belonging to the king were going [to] Tarshish with the servants of Huram.” This probably refers to large ships either made in or capable of traveling to the distant western port of Tarshish.

2 tn Heb “servants.”

3 tn Heb “the fleet of Tarshish [ships].”

4 tn Heb “the ships of Tarshish came carrying.”

5 tn The meaning of this word is unclear; some suggest it refers to “baboons.” NEB has “monkeys,” NASB, NRSV “peacocks,” and NIV “baboons.”

6 tn Heb “he made an alliance with him.”

7 tn Heb “make ships to go to Tarshish.” This probably refers to large ships either made in or capable of traveling to the distant western port of Tarshish; a “Tarshish-ship” was essentially a large seagoing merchant ship.

8 tn Heb “when.”

9 tn Heb “to go to Tarshish.”
