Solomon's Riches

14And Solomon gathered chariots and horsemen: and he had a thousand and four hundred chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen, which he placed in the chariot cities, and with the king at Jerusalem. 15And the king made silver and gold at Jerusalem as plenteous as stones, and cedar trees made he as the sycomore trees that are in the vale for abundance. 16And Solomon had horses brought out of Egypt, and linen yarn: the king's merchants received the linen yarn at a price. 17And they fetched up, and brought forth out of Egypt a chariot for six hundred shekels of silver, and an horse for an hundred and fifty: and so brought they out horses for all the kings of the Hittites, and for the kings of Syria, by their means.

1 Kings 10:28,29 And Solomon had horses brought out of Egypt, and linen yarn: the king's merchants received the linen yarn at a price...

linen yarn The word () mikweh, is regarded by the ancient translators as a proper name: the LXX have () `from Tekoa,' the Vulgate, de Coa, `from Koa,' which is adopted by Dr. Geddes; the Syriac, `from the city Aphelia;' and the Arabic, `ex urbe Australium.' Bochart thinks it signifies a tribute; others suppose that it signifies a string or drove of horses, or as Jarchi says, what the Germans call () a stud; but Houbigant supposes it to be a corruption for mercavah, `chariots.' Our English translation, however, which regards it as synonymous with {tikwah}, seems by far the best. According to Norden, linen yarn is still one of the principal articles of commerce in Egypt, and is exported in very large quantities, together with unmanufactured flax and spun cotton; and Sanutus,

400 years ago, remarked that though Christian countries abounded in flax, yet the goodness of the Egyptian was such, that it was dispersed even to the west.
