* house of the Lord.
Throughout the East, the horse because of his swiftness and
utility, was dedicated to the sun; and the Greeks and Romans
feigned that the chariot of the sun was drawn by four horses,
Pyrous, Eous, Aithon, and Phlegon: and hence also chariots
were dedicated to that luminary. Jarchi says, that those who
adored the sun had horses, which they mounted every morning,
to go out to meet him at his rising. The kings of Judah had
imitated these idolatrous customs, and kept the horses of the
sun even at the entrance of the temple of the Lord!
