“He recognized that horses represented a prized commodity for military leaders, so he began to import horses from an area west and southwest of the Amanus Mountains called Kue and Muṣri (1 Kgs. 10:28).  The latter area appears as Miṣraim in the Hebrew text, which is the Hebrew name for Egypt, but Egypt makes little sense in this context.  Kue and Muṣri form a standard word pair in Assyrian records and are neighboring regions (May, 1984, 136). ”
