Solomon's Servants

Sol'omon's Servants. (Children of Solomon's Servants). Ezra 2:55; Ezra 2:58; Nehemiah 7:57; Nehemiah 7:60. The persons, thus named, appear in the lists of the exiles, who returned from the captivity. They were the descendants of the Canaanites, who were reduced by Solomon, to the helot state, and compelled to labor in the king's stone-quarries, and in building his palaces and cities. 1 Kings 5:13-14; 1 Kings 9:20-21; 2 Chronicles 8:7-8. They appear to have formed a distinct order, inheriting, probably, the same functions, and the same skill as their ancestors.
