Commentary
Matthew Henry Commentary
1:1-17 Solomon's choice of wisdom, His strength and wealth. - SOLOMON began his reign with a pious, public visit to God's altar. Those that pursue present things most eagerly, are likely to be disappointed; while those that refer themselves to the providence of God, if they have not the most, have the most comfort. Those that make this world their end, come short of the other, and are disappointed in this also; but those that make the other world their end, shall not only obtain that, and full satisfaction in it, but shall have as much of this world as is good for them, in their way. Let us then be contented, without those great things which men generally covet, but which commonly prove fatal snares to the soul.

linen yarn The word () mikweh, is regarded by the ancient translators as a proper name: the LXX have () `from Tekoa,' the Vulgate, de Coa, `from Koa,' which is adopted by Dr. Geddes; the Syriac, `from the city Aphelia;' and the Arabic, `ex urbe Australium.' Bochart thinks it signifies a tribute; others suppose that it signifies a string or drove of horses, or as Jarchi says, what the Germans call () a stud; but Houbigant supposes it to be a corruption for mercavah, `chariots.' Our English translation, however, which regards it as synonymous with {tikwah}, seems by far the best. According to Norden, linen yarn is still one of the principal articles of commerce in Egypt, and is exported in very large quantities, together with unmanufactured flax and spun cotton; and Sanutus,
