And Solomon sent to Hiram
A letter, either by the hand of his ambassadors when they returned, as Kimchi thinks, or by ambassadors Solomon sent on purpose. Josephus F23 appeals to the Tyrian archives for the genuineness of these letters that passed between Hiram and Solomon; and Eupolemus, an Heathen writer F24 has both this which Solomon sent to Hiram, and that which Hiram sent in answer to it, which agree with those in the sacred records:
F23 Antiqu. l. 8. c. 2. sect. 8.
F24 Ut Supra. (Apud Euseb. Praepar. Evangel. l. 9. c. 32, 34.)
