        whom.

       * 1Ch 25:1,6 Job 21:11,12 Ps 150:3-5 Da 3:5,7,15 Am 6:5
      The difficult words {shiddah weshiddoth} are variously
      rendered.  The LXX. have [                        ] "male and
      female cup-bearers," with which the Syriac and Arabic and
      Parkhurst agree; Aquila, [                       ] "a cup and
      smaller cups;" Jerome, {scyphos et urceolos, (Vulg.
      {urceos,}) "goblets and pots;" Targum, "warm and cold baths;"
      others, as M. Desvoeux, "male and female captives;" others,
      "cooks and confectioners;" others, " a species of musical
      compositions," derived from Sido, a celebrated Phoenician
      woman, to whom Sanchoniatho attributes the invention of
      music; but others, with more probability, "wives and
      concubines;" and {siddoth} may be in this sense synonymous
      with the Arabic {seedat, domina, conjux} from {sada,} in
      {Conj. V. conjugium inivit.}  Of the former, Solomon had
      three hundred, and of the latter, seven hundred; and if they
      are not mentioned here they are not mentioned at all, which
      is wholly unaccountable.
