Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אַלְמֻגִּים m. pl. 1 Kings 10:11, 12 1 Kings 10:12, and with the letters transposed אַלְגּוּמִּים 2 Chronicles 2:7, 9:10, 11 2 Chronicles 9:11, a kind of precious wood, brought from Ophir, by sea, in the time of Solomon, together with gold and precious stones, used for ornaments of the temple and palace, and also for making musical instruments; according to 2 Chronicles 2:7, growing also on Lebanon. [“It seems to correspond to Sanscr. mîcˊata (from simpl. mîcˊa, so Bohlen), with the Arab. art. أَلْ; sandal wood, pterocarpus sandaliorus, Linn.; red sandal wood, still used in India and Persia for costly utensils and instruments, Celsii Hierob. i. p. 171, seq.” Ges. add.] Many of the Rabbins understood coral, and in this sense the singular אַלְמוּג is used in the Talmud; but this is not wood (עֵצִים); although if this use of the word by the Talmudists be ancient, that precious wood might be so called from its resemblance to coral, as if coralwood, Korallenholz. More probable is the opinion of Kimchi, who takes it for the Arab. البقم which the Europeans call בראזיל Brazil wood.
