2 Chronicles 2:13 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The materials Hiram was to send were cedar, cypress, and algummim wood from Lebanon. אלגוּמים, 2 Chronicles 2:7 and 2 Chronicles 9:10, instead of אלמגּים, 1 Kings 10:11, probably means sandal wood, which was employed in the temple, according to 1 Kings 10:12, for stairs and musical instruments, and is therefore mentioned here, although it did not grow in Lebanon, but, according to 1 Kings 9:10 and 1 Kings 10:11, was procured at Ophir. Here, in our enumeration, it is inexactly grouped along with the cedars and cypresses brought from Lebanon.
