At the end of 20 years during which Solomon had built the two houses, the Lord's temple and the royal palacea-
Hiram king of Tyre having supplied him with cedar and cypress logs and gold for his every wish-King Solomon gave Hiram 20 towns in the land of Galilee.
So Hiram went out from Tyre to look over the towns that Solomon had given him, but he was not pleased with them.
So he said, "What are these towns you've given me, my brother?" So he called them the Land of Cabul,b as they are [still called] today.
Now Hiram had sent the king 9,000 poundsc of gold.
