2 Chronicles 3:6

3:6 He decorated the temple with precious stones; the gold he used came from Parvaim. 1 

2 Chronicles 9:10

9:10 (Huram’s 2  servants, aided by Solomon’s servants, brought gold from Ophir, as well as 3  fine 4  timber and precious gems.

1 tn Heb “and he plated the house [with] precious stone for beauty, and the gold was the gold of Parvaim.”

sn The location of Parvaim, the source of the gold for Solomon’s temple, is uncertain. Some have identified it with modern Farwa in Yemen; others relate it to the Sanskrit parvam and understand it to be a general term for the regions east of Palestine.

2 tn Heb “Huram’s” (also in v. 21). 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.

3 tn Heb “who brought gold from Ophir, brought.”

4 tn Heb “algum.”
