Alliance with King Hiram
1 IaNow Hiram° king° of Tyre° sent° his servants° to Solomon°, when° he heard° that they had anointed° him king° in place° of his father°, for bHiram° had° IIalways°° been° a friend° of David°. 2 Then aSolomon° sent° [word] to Hiram°, saying°, 3 “You know° that aDavid° my father° was unable°° to build° a house° for the name° of the LORD° his God° because°° of the wars° which° surrounded° him, until° the LORD° put° them under° the soles° of his feet°. 4 But now° athe LORD° my God° has given° me rest° on every° side°; there° is neither° adversary° nor° Imisfortune°°. 5 Behold°, aI Iintend° to build° a house° for the name° of the LORD° my God°, as the LORD° spoke° to David° my father°, saying°, ‘Your son°, whom° I will set° on your throne° in your place°, he will build° the house° for My name°.’ 6 Now° therefore, command° that they cut° for me acedars° from Lebanon°, and my servants° will be with your servants°; and I will give° you wages° for your servants° according to all° that you say°, for you know° that there° is no° one° among us who knows° how to cut° timber° like the Sidonians°.”

Hiram, sending to congratulate Solomon, is certified of his purpose to build the Temple, and desired to furnish him with timber thereto.
1 ¶ And Hiramº kingº of Tyreº sentºª² his servantsº unto² Solomon;º for² he had heardºª that² they had anointedºª him kingº in the room² of his father:º for² Hiramº was² everº² a loverºª of David.º 2 And Solomonº sentºª to² Hiram,º saying,ºª 3 Thou² knowestºª how that²² Davidº my fatherº couldºª not² buildºª an houseº unto the nameº of the LORDº his Godº forº² the warsº which² were about him on every side,ºª until² the LORDº putºª them under² the solesº of his feet.º 4 But now² the LORDº my Godº hath given me restºª on every side,º² [so that there is] neither² adversaryº nor² evilº occurrent.º 5 And, behold,² I purposeºª to buildºª an houseº unto the nameº of the LORDº my God,º as² the LORDº spakeºª unto² Davidº my father,º saying,ºª Thy son,º whom² I will setºª upon² thy throneº in thy room,² he² shall buildºª an houseº unto my name.º 6 Now² therefore commandºª thou that they hewºª me cedar treesº out of² Lebanon;º and my servantsº shall be² with² thy servants:º and unto thee will I giveºª hireº for thy servantsº according to all² that² thou shalt appoint:ºª for² thou² knowestºª that² [there is] not² among us anyº that can skillºª to hewºª timberº like unto the Sidonians.º

Hiram, blessing God for Solomon, and requesting food for his family, furnisheth him with trees.
7 ¶ And it came to pass,² when Hiramº heardºª² the wordsº of Solomon,º that he rejoicedºª greatly,º and said,ºª Blessedºª [be] the LORDº this day,º which² hath givenºª unto Davidº a wiseº sonº over² this² greatº people.º 8 And Hiramº sentºª to² Solomon,º saying,ºª I have consideredºª² the things which² thou sentestºª to² me for: [and] I² will doºª² all² thy desireº concerning timberº of cedar,º and concerning timberº of fir.º 9 My servantsº shall bring [them] downºª from² Lebanonº unto the sea:º and I² will conveyºª them by seaº in floatsº unto² the placeº that² thou shalt appointºª² me, and will cause them to be dischargedºª there,² and thou² shalt receiveºª [them]: and thou² shalt accomplishºª² my desire,º in givingºª foodº for my household.º 10 So Hiramº gaveºª Solomonº cedarº treesº and firº treesº [according to] all² his desire.º 11 And Solomonº gaveºª Hiramº twentyº thousandº measuresº of wheatº [for] foodº to his household,º and twentyº measuresº of pureº oil:º thus² gaveºª Solomonº to Hiramº yearº by year.º 12 And the LORDº gaveºª Solomonº wisdom,º as² he promisedºª him: and there was² peaceº between² Hiramº and Solomon;º and they twoºª made¹ª a league¹ together.¹²²
