1Solomon gathered together chariots and horsemen. 2He had 1,400 chariots and 12,000 horsemen, whom he stationed 3in the chariot cities and with the king in Jerusalem.
And the king made silver and gold as common in Jerusalem as stone, and he made cedar as plentiful as the sycamore of the Shephelah.
And Solomon's import of horses was from Egypt and Kue, and the king's traders would buy them from Kue for a price.
They imported a chariot from Egypt for 600 shekels of silver, and a horse for 150. Likewise through them these were exported to all the kings of the Hittites and the kings of Syria.
