2 Chronicles 9:10-11 New English Translation (NET Bible)

10 (Huram’s[a] servants, aided by Solomon’s servants, brought gold from Ophir, as well as[b] fine[c] timber and precious gems. 11 With the timber the king made steps[d] for the Lord’s temple and royal palace as well as stringed instruments[e] for the musicians. No one had seen anything like them in the land of Judah before that.[f])


  1. 2 Chronicles 9:10 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. 2 Chronicles 9:10 tn Heb “who brought gold from Ophir, brought.”
  3. 2 Chronicles 9:10 tn Heb “algum.”
  4. 2 Chronicles 9:11 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. 2 Chronicles 9:11 tn Two types of stringed instruments are specifically mentioned in the Hebrew text, the כִּנּוֹר (kinnor, “zither”) and נֶבֶל (nevel, “harp”).
  6. 2 Chronicles 9:11 tn Heb “there was not seen like these formerly in the land of Judah.”
