* Solomon sought.
2Ch 16:10 Pr 21:30 Isa 14:24-27 46:10 La 3:37
This is the first time we meet with the proper name of an
Egyptian king in Scripture, Pharaoh being the general
appellation for all the sovereigns of that country. Some are
of opinion that Shishak is the same with the celebrated
Sesostris of the Greek historians; but it is probable that
this king lived long before Solomon's time. Usher thinks him
to be Sesonchis, and places the beginning of his reign, A.M.
3026, B.C. 978.
