1 Kings 4:26-28

Context
4:26 Solomon had 4,000 1  stalls for his chariot horses and 12,000 horses. 4:27 The district governors acquired supplies for King Solomon and all who ate in his royal palace. 2  Each was responsible for one month in the year; they made sure nothing was lacking. 4:28 Each one also brought to the assigned location his quota of barley and straw for the various horses. 3 

1 tn The Hebrew text has “40,000,” but this is probably an inflated number (nevertheless it is followed by KJV, ASV, NASB, NRSV, TEV, CEV). Some Greek mss of the OT and the parallel in 2 Chr 9:25 read “4,000” (cf. NAB, NIV, NCV, NLT).

2 tn Heb “everyone who drew near to the table of King Solomon.”

3 tn Heb “barley and straw for the horses and the steeds they brought to the place which was there, each according to his measure.”
