Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(I.Kings, iv:21.)--'And Solomon reigned over all the kingdoms from the river unto the land of the Philistines, and unto the border of Egypt: they brought presents and served Solomon all the days of his life.' In the first chapter of Joshua, the Lord spake unto Joshua, saying, 'Every place that the soul of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses from the wilderness, and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea towards the going down of the sun shall be your coast.' The promise made to Joshua was practically confirmed and realized at the conclusion of David's reign. Solomon came into possession of this great inheritance, but by forgetting God he prepared the way for the dismemberment of his great kingdom. The Abana river is a scene near Damascus, at this time embraced within the dominions of Solomon."
