    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:28

    Y traían también cebada y paja para los caballos, y para las bestias de carga, al lugar donde él estaba, cada uno conforme al cargo que tenía.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 4:28

    Verse 28. And dromedaries] The word Ťkr rechesh, which we translate thus, is rendered
    beasts, or beasts of burden, by the Vulgate; mares by the Syriac and Arabic; chariots by the Septuagint; and race-horses by the Chaldee. The original word seems to signify a very swift kind of horse, and race-horse or post-horse is probably its true meaning. To communicate with so many distant provinces, Solomon had need of many animals of this kind.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 28.
    Barley also, and straw for the horses and dromedaries , etc.] Or rather mules, by comparing the passage with ( 2 Chronicles 9:24); the particular kind of creatures meant is not agreed on; though all take them to be a swifter sort of creatures than horses; or the swifter of horses, as race horses or posts horses: barley was for their provender, that being the common food of horses in those times and countries, and in others, as Bochart has shown from various writers; and in the Misnah it is called the food of beasts; and Solomon is said to have every day his own horses two hundred thousand Neapolitan measures of called “tomboli” f61 ; so the Roman soldiers, the horse were allowed a certain quantity of barley for their horses every morning, and sometimes they had money instead of it, which they therefore called “hordiarium” and the “straw” was for the litter of them: these brought they unto the place ; where the officers were; not where the king was, as the Vulgate Latin version; where Solomon was, as the Arabic version, that is, in Jerusalem; nor where [the officers] were ; in their respective jurisdictions, as our version supplies it, which would be bringing them to themselves; but to the place where the beasts were, whether in Jerusalem, or in any, other parts of the kingdom: every man according to his charge : which he was monthly to perform.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 20-28 - Never did the
    crown of Israel shine so bright, as when Solomon wore it He had peace on all sides. Herein, his kingdom was a type of the Messiah's; for to Him it is promised that he shall have the heathen for his inheritance, and that princes shall worship him. The spiritual peace, and joy, and holy security, of all the faithful subjects of the Lord Jesus, were typified by that of Israel. The kingdom of God is not as Solomon's was, meat and drink, but, what is infinitely better righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. The vast number of his attendants, and the great resort to him, are shown by the provisio daily made. Herein Christ far outdoes Solomon, that he feeds all his subjects, not with the bread that perishes, but with that which endure to eternal life.
