Silver
        used for a great variety of purposes, as may be judged from the
        frequent references to it in Scripture. It first appears in
        commerce in Gen. 13:2; 23:15, 16. It was largely employed for
        making vessels for the sanctuary in the wilderness (Ex. 26:19;
        27:17; Num. 7:13, 19; 10:2). There is no record of its having
        been found in Syria or Israel. It was brought in large
        quantities by foreign merchants from abroad, from Spain and
        India and other countries probably.
