2 Chronicles 9:10-11

Context
9:10 (Huram’s 1  servants, aided by Solomon’s servants, brought gold from Ophir, as well as 2  fine 3  timber and precious gems. 9:11 With the timber the king made steps 4  for the Lord’s temple and royal palace as well as stringed instruments 5  for the musicians. No one had seen anything like them in the land of Judah prior to that. 6 )

1 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.

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

3 tn Heb “algum.”

4 tn Heb “tracks.” The parallel text in 1 Kgs 10:12 has a different term whose meaning is uncertain: “supports,” perhaps “banisters” or “parapets.”

5 tn Two types of stringed instruments are specifically mentioned in the Hebrew text, the כִּנּוֹר (kinnor, “zither”) and נֶבֶל (nevel, “harp”).

6 tn Heb “there was not seen like these formerly in the land of Judah.”
