King James Version (KJV)

King James Bible KJV


Early used in foreign commerce by the Phoenicians (Gen. 49:13). "Moses (Deut. 28:68) and Job (9:26) make reference to them, and" "Balaam speaks of the "ships of Chittim" (Num. 24:24). Solomon" constructed a navy at Ezion-geber by the assistance of Hiram's "sailors (1 Kings 9:26-28; 2 Chr. 8:18). Afterwards, Jehoshaphat" "sought to provide himself with a navy at the same port, but his" ships appear to have been wrecked before they set sail (1 Kings "22:48, 49; 2 Chr. 20:35-37)." "In our Lord's time fishermen's boats on the Sea of Galilee were "called "ships." Much may be learned regarding the construction" of ancient merchant ships and navigation from the record in Acts "27, 28."
