First Kings 9:28

This website has been moved to: https://debatemap.live

1 Kings 9:28: And they went to Ophir, and acquired four hundred and twenty talents of gold from there, and brought it to King Solomon.

2 Chronicles 8:18: And Hiram sent him ships by the hand of his servants, and servants who knew the sea. They went with the servants of Solomon to Ophir, and acquired four hundred and fifty talents of gold from there, and brought it to King Solomon.

First Kings says that 420 talents of gold were brought back from Ophir, but Second Chronicles says that 450 talents of gold were brought back from Ophir.

This is most likely just the result of scribal copying errors.
