And Solomon sent to Huram king of Tyre
The same with Hiram, ( 1 Kings 5:1 ) and from whence it appears, that Huram first sent a letter to Solomon to congratulate him on his accession to the throne, which is not taken notice of here:
as thou didst deal with my father, and didst send him cedars to
build him an house to dwell therein;
see ( 1 Chronicles 14:1 ) , even so deal with me; which words are a supplement.
