2 Chronicles 8:4 . Tadmor, Palmyra. 1 Kings 9:18. This city rose to be capital of a province, which sent eighty thousand men to join the Assyrian army. Its ruins exhibit a wall eleven miles in circumference.
2 Chronicles 8:11 . My wife shall not dwell in the house of David because the places are holy. The Targum calls this princess Bithiah, daughter of Pharaoh.
