    SEV Biblia, Chapter 10:27

    Y el rey hizo que en Jerusalén la plata llegara a ser como piedras, y cedros como los cabrahigos que están por los campos en abundancia.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 10:27

    Verse 27. Made silver-as
    stones] He destroyed its value by making it so exceedingly plenty.

    As the sycamore trees] He planted many cedars, and doubtless had much cedar wood imported; so that it became as common as the sycamore trees, which appear to have grown there in great abundance. This is considered to be a tree that partakes of the nature of the fig tree, and of the mulberry. Of the former it has the fruit, and of the latter the leaves; that is, the fruit had a considerable resemblance to the fig, and the leaf to that of the mulberry tree: hence its name sycamore, from the Greek sukon, a fig, and morea, a mulberry tree.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 27. And the king made silver to be in Jerusalem as stones , etc.] By the vast quantity he received from Tarshish; this is an hyperbolical expression: and cedars made he to be as the sycamore trees that are the vale for abundance ; not by the growth of them, but by the importation of them from the dominion of Hiram; this is said in the same figurative way; of the sycamore trees, Rauwolff says f283 , they are what the Moors and Arabians calls “mumeitz”; which he describes to be as large and as high as white mulberry trees, and having almost the same leaves, but rounder, and their fruit not unlike our figs, only sweeter, and no little seeds within, and not so good; and are therefore not esteemed, and are commonly sold to the poorer sort, and that they grow in all fields and grounds; of which (see Gill on “ Amos 7:14”).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 14-29 -
    Solomon increased his wealth. Silver was nothing accounted of. Such is the nature of worldly wealth, plenty of it makes it the less valuable much more should the enjoyment of spiritual riches lessen our esteem of all earthly possessions. If gold in abundance makes silver to be despised, shall not wisdom, and grace, and the foretastes of heaven which are far better than gold, make gold to be lightly esteemed? Se in Solomon's greatness the performance of God's promise, and let it encourage us to seek first the righteousness of God's kingdom. This wa he, who, having tasted all earthly enjoyments, wrote a book, to sho the vanity of all worldly things, the vexation of spirit that attend them, and the folly of setting our hearts upon them: and to recommen serious godliness, as that which will do unspeakably more to make u happy, that all the wealth and power he was master of; and, through the grace of God, it is within our reach __________________________________________________________________
