YARN (Heb. miqweh). The KJV translation of the Hebrew word that occurs in 1Kgs.10.28 and 2Chr.1.16. In each of these cases “linen yarn” seems to convey the wrong meaning. It is correctly translated in RSV and NIV by the proper name “Kue,” the old Assyrian name given to Cilicia, the land located in the SE portion of Asia Minor.

YARN (מִקְוֵ֕ה. The KJV rendering of מִקְוֵ֕ה 1 Kings 10:28; 2 Chron 1:16). The ASV has “drove” and the RSV has “from Kue.” Kue was the name of a country famed for its export of horses in the E part of Cilicia. The RSV tr. follows the Vulgate (de Coa), and has other ancient support.
