Bible Commentary for 1 Kings 10:20

Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 10:20


10:19 Round - Made like the half of a circle.

10:21 Nothing - Comparatively. Such hyperbolical expressions arefrequent both in scripture and other authors. But if gold in abundance,would make silver seem so despicable, shall not wisdom and grace, and theforetastes of heaven, make gold seem much more so?

10:22 Tharshish - Ships that went to Tharshish. For Tharshishwas the name of a place upon the sea, famous for its traffick withmerchants, and it was a place very remote from Judea, as appears fromthe three years usually spent in that voyage. But whether it was Spain,where in those times there was abundance of gold and silver, as Straboand others affirm; or, some place in the Indies, it is needless todetermine.
