error in strong number parsing >,] or [miqv(8868) <See definition 04723>,] {mikweh,} is regarded by the ancient translators as a proper name: the LXX. have [ek Thekoue,] "from Tekoa," the Vulgate, {de Coa,} "from Koa," which is adopted by Dr. Geddes; the Syriac, "from the city Aphelia;" and the Arabic, "{ex urbe Australium.}" Bochart thinks it signifies a tribute; others suppose that it signifies a string or drove of horses, or as Jarchi says, what the Germans call {Stutte,} a stud; but Houbigant supposes it to be a corruption for {mercavah,} "chariots." Our English translation, however, which regards it as synonymous with {tikwah,} seems by far the best.
