Jehoshaphat made ships of Tharshish to go to Ophir for gold: but they went not; for the ships were broken at Eziongeber.
New Defender's Study Bible Notes
22:48 go to Ophir. Although the location of ancient Ophir is uncertain (sites in India, Someliland and Arabia have been suggested), its existence as a primary source of gold in antiquity has been corroborated in non-Biblical texts as well as in the Bible (e.g., I Kings 9:28; 10:11). For example, an inscription on a piece of pottery found on the plain of Sharon near Tel-Aviv mentions the “gold of Ophir.”
