1 Kings 9:10-28

Cities Given to Hiram

10 1It came about 2at the end of twenty years in which Solomon had built the two houses, the house of the LORD and the king's house
11 (Hiram king of Tyre had supplied Solomon with cedar and cypress timber and gold according to all his desire ), then King Solomon gave Hiram twenty cities in the land of Galilee.
12 So Hiram came out from Tyre to see the cities which Solomon had given him, and they did not please * him.
13 He said, "What are these cities which you have given me, my brother?" So they were called the land of 3Cabul to this day.
14 4And Hiram sent to the king 120 * talents of gold.
15 Now this is the account of the forced labor which King Solomon 5levied to build the house of the LORD, his own house, the 6Millo, the wall of Jerusalem, 7Hazor, 8Megiddo, and 9Gezer.
16 For Pharaoh king of Egypt had gone up and captured Gezer and burned it with fire, and killed the 10Canaanites who lived in the city, and had 11given it as a dowry to his daughter, Solomon's wife.
18 and 13Baalath and Tamar in the wilderness, in the land of Judah,
19 and all the storage cities which Solomon had, even 14the cities for his chariots and the cities for 15his horsemen, and 16all that it pleased * Solomon to build in Jerusalem, in Lebanon, and in all the land under his rule.
20 As for all the people who were left of the Amorites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Hivites and the Jebusites, who were not of the sons of Israel,
21 17their descendants who were left after them in the land 18whom the sons of Israel were unable * to destroy utterly, 19from them Solomon levied 20forced laborers *, even to this day.
22 But Solomon 21did not make slaves of the sons of Israel; for they were men of war, his servants, his princes, his captains, his chariot commanders, and his horsemen.
23 These were the 22chief officers who were over Solomon's work, five hundred and fifty, 23who ruled over the people doing the work.
24 As soon as 24Pharaoh's daughter came up from the city of David to her house which Solomon had built for her, 25then he built the Millo.
25 Now 26three times in a year Solomon offered burnt offerings and peace offerings on the altar which he built to the LORD, burning incense with them on the altar which was before the LORD. So he finished the house.
26 King Solomon also built a 27fleet of ships in 28Ezion-geber, which is near Eloth on the shore of the Red * Sea, in the land of Edom.
27 29And Hiram sent his servants with the fleet, sailors * who knew the sea, along with the servants of Solomon.
28 They went to 30Ophir and took four hundred and twenty talents of gold from there, and brought it to King Solomon.
