Ophir

Ophir

What was the source of the supply of gold for the building of the temple? And they came from Ophir (It was probably a seaport somewhere in India or Africa), and fetched from thence gold, four hundred and twenty talents, and brought it to king Solomon, and the navy also of Hiram, that brought gold from Ophir, brought in from Ophir great plenty of almug trees, and precious stones. [1 Kings 9:28 and 10:11]
