Tarshish Bochart thinks this Tarshish was probably the promontory Cory, on the north of the island of Ceylon, which, according to him, was the land of ophir. That it was name of a place in the East Indies, seems probable from the articles brought thence, and also from the ships sent thither being built at Ezion-geber, on the Red Sea; though Michaelis supposes that the fleet coasted along the shore of Africa, doubling the Cape of Good Hope, and came to Tartessus, in Spain, and thence back again the same way; that this accounts for their three years' voyage out and home and that Spain and the coasts of Africa furnish all the commodities which they brought back.

1 Kings 10:22 For the king had at sea a navy of Tharshish with the navy of Hiram: …

1 Kings 22:48 Jehoshaphat made ships of Tharshish to go to Ophir for gold: but …

peacocks Tukkeeyim is rendered taysin in the Targum, () in the Alexandrian MS. of the LXX., and pavos, `peacocks,' in the Vulgate; with which the Syriac, Arabic, and Rabbins agree. This derives confirmation from the fact, that the peacock is called in Malabric, Togei.

Job 39:13 Gave you the goodly wings to the peacocks? or wings and feathers to the ostrich?
