Sutcliffe's Commentary on the Old and New Testaments

2 Chronicles 9

Verses 1-31

2 Chronicles 9:12 . Besides that which she had brought unto the king. It cannot be understood that Solomon returned the presents which the queen brought to him; but he far exceeded her in liberality and profusion of gifts. 1 Kings 10:13.

2 Chronicles 9:15 . Solomon made two hundred targets of beaten gold; weight three hundred ounces, and value about twelve hundred pounds sterling each. He intended these for captains, not foreseeing that he was making them for Shishak, king of Egypt. They had a short dagger in the centre.
