The NIV translation of thukkiyim (1 Kings 10:22; 2 Chronicles 9:21 ). The TEV and REB translate the same word as “monkeys.” The KJV, NAS, and NRSV give the translation “peacocks” (but see NRSV margin). There is a strong similarity between thukkiyim and the Egyptian word for monkey which leads many to accept baboon or monkey as the correct translation.
