Jeremiah 10:9 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Brought from Tarshish - Some suppose this to be Tartessus in Spain, from which the Phoenicians brought much silver. Uphaz, Calmet thinks to be the river Pison; some think Ophir is intended.
Blue and purple is their clothing - These were the most precious dyes; very rare, and of high price.
