What does 2 Chronicles 2:8 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Chronicles 2:8

Send me also cedar trees, fir trees, and algum trees, out of
Lebanon
Of the two first of these, and which Hiram sent, see ( 1 Kings 5:10 ) . The algum trees are the same with the almug trees, ( 1 Kings 10:11 1 Kings 10:12 ) by a transposition of letters; these could not be coral, as some Jewish writers think, which grows in the sea, for these were in Lebanon; nor Brazil, as Kimchi, so called from a place of this name, which at this time was not known; though there were trees of almug afterwards brought from Ophir in India, as appears from the above quoted place, as well as from Arabia; and it seems, as Beckius


FOOTNOTES:

F3 observes, to be an Arabic word, by the article "al" prefixed to it:

for I know that thy servants can skill to cut timber in Lebanon;
better than his:

and, behold, my servants shall be with thy servants;
to help and assist them in what they can, and to learn of them, see ( 1 Kings 5:6 ) .
