2Ch 9:28 — And they brought unto Solomon horses out of Egypt, and out of all lands.
|Phrase from KJV (Help)
||"""Moses,"" says Bp. Warburton, ""had expressly prohibited the multiplying of horses, (Deu 17:16;) by which the future king was forbidden to establish a body of calvary, because this could not be effected without sending into Egypt, with which people God had forbidden any communication, as this would be dangerous to religion. When Solomon had violated this law, and multiplied horses to excess, (1Ki 4:26,) it was soon attended with those fatal consequences that the law foretold: for this wisest of kings having likewise, in violation of another law, married Pharaoh's daughter, (the early fruits of this commerce,) and then, by a repetition of the same crime, but a transgression of another law, had espoused more strange women, (1Ki 4:26; 11:1,) they first,in defiance of a fourth law, persuaded him to build them idol temples for their use; and afterwards, against a fifth law, brought him to erect other temples for his own."" 2Ch 9:25; 2Ch 1:16; 1Ki 10:28; Isa 2:7,8; Isa 31:1"|
