2 Chronicles 2:3; 2 Chronicles 2:11-12
Solomon sent this message to Hiram king of Tyre: “Send me cedar logs as you did for my father David when you sent him cedar to build a palace to live in.
Hiram king of Tyre replied by letter to Solomon: “Because the LORD loves his people, he has made you their king.”
And Hiram added: “Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, who made heaven and earth! He has given King David a wise son, endowed with intelligence and discernment, who will build a temple for the LORD and a palace for himself.
