Read 1 Kings 10:29 Using Other Translations

And a chariot came up and went out of Egypt for six hundred shekels of silver, and an horse for an hundred and fifty: and so for all the kings of the Hittites, and for the kings of Syria, did they bring them out by their means.
A chariot could be imported from Egypt for 600 shekels of silver and a horse for 150, and so through the king's traders they were exported to all the kings of the Hittites and the kings of Syria.
At that time chariots from Egypt could be purchased for 600 pieces of silver, and horses for 150 pieces of silver. They were then exported to the kings of the Hittites and the kings of Aram.

What does 1 Kings 10:29 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Kings 10:29

And a chariot came up and went out of Egypt for six hundred
shekels of silver
Which, reckoning at two shillings and six pence a shekel, amounted to seventy five pounds; but a shekel was not worth more than two shillings and four pence farthing:

and an horse for one hundred and fifty;
and this being the fourth part of the above sum, the Jews gather from hence that there were four horses in a chariot; the horses must be reckoned one with another, the whole collection of them, or otherwise no doubt but one horse was better than another; and it was a pretty large price to give for a horse in those times; which, taking a shekel at the lowest rate, must be upwards of ten pounds; and which is too great a sum still for a custom or tribute to be paid for them, whether to Pharaoh or Solomon, as some understand it:

and so for all the kings of the Hittites;
perhaps the same with the kings of Arabia, ( 1 Kings 10:15 ) and for the kings of Syria; those of Damascus, Zobah

did they bring them out by their means;
that is, by the means of Solomon's merchants, who bought them out of Egypt, and sold them to these kings.
