1 Kings 5

GW 1 King Hiram of Tyre sent his officials to Solomon when he heard that Solomon had been anointed king to succeed his father. Hiram had always been David's friend. NIV 1 When Hiram king of Tyre heard that Solomon had been anointed king to succeed his father David, he sent his envoys to Solomon, because he had always been on friendly terms with David. GW 2 Solomon sent word to Hiram, by saying, NIV 2 Solomon sent back this message to Hiram: GW 3 "You know that my father David was surrounded by war. He couldn't build a temple for the name of the LORD our God until the LORD let him defeat his enemies. NIV 3 “You know that because of the wars waged against my father David from all sides, he could not build a temple for the Name of the LORD his God until the LORD put his enemies under his feet. GW 4 But the LORD my God has surrounded me with peace. I have no rival and no trouble. NIV 4 But now the LORD my God has given me rest on every side, and there is no adversary or disaster. GW 5 Now I'm thinking of building a temple for the name of the LORD my God as the LORD spoke to my father David: 'Your son, whom I will put on your throne to succeed you, will build a temple for my name.' NIV 5 I intend, therefore, to build a temple for the Name of the LORD my God, as the LORD told my father David, when he said, ‘Your son whom I will put on the throne in your place will build the temple for my Name.’ GW 6 So order men to cut down cedars from Lebanon for me. My workers will work with your workers. I will pay you whatever wages you ask for your workers. You know we don't have any skilled lumberjacks like those from Sidon." NIV 6 “So give orders that cedars of Lebanon be cut for me. My men will work with yours, and I will pay you for your men whatever wages you set. You know that we have no one so skilled in felling timber as the Sidonians.” GW 7 Hiram was very glad to hear what Solomon had said. Hiram responded, "May the LORD be praised today. He has given David a wise son to rule this great nation." NIV 7 When Hiram heard Solomon’s message, he was greatly pleased and said, “Praise be to the LORD today, for he has given David a wise son to rule over this great nation.” GW 8 Hiram sent men to Solomon to say, "I've received the message you sent me. I will do everything you want in regard to the cedar and cypress logs. NIV 8 So Hiram sent word to Solomon: “I have received the message you sent me and will do all you want in providing the cedar and juniper logs. GW 9 My workers will bring logs from Lebanon to the sea, and I will have them make them into rafts to go by sea to any place you specify. There I will have them taken apart, and you can use them. You can pay me by providing food for my palace." NIV 9 My men will haul them down from Lebanon to the Mediterranean Sea, and I will float them as rafts by sea to the place you specify. There I will separate them and you can take them away. And you are to grant my wish by providing food for my royal household.” GW 10 So Hiram gave Solomon all the cedar and cypress wood he wanted. NIV 10 In this way Hiram kept Solomon supplied with all the cedar and juniper logs he wanted, GW 11 Solomon gave Hiram 120,000 bushels of wheat and 120,000 gallons of pure olive oil.

Solomon continued to do this for Hiram year after year. GW 12 The LORD gave Solomon wisdom as he had promised. There was peace between Hiram and Solomon, and they made a treaty with one another.

GW 15 Solomon had 70,000 men who carried heavy loads, 70,000 who quarried stone in the mountains, NIV 15 Solomon had seventy thousand carriers and eighty thousand stonecutters in the hills, GW 16 and 3,300 foremen who were in charge of the workers. NIV 16 as well as thirty-three hundred foremen who supervised the project and directed the workers. GW 17 The king commanded them to quarry large, expensive blocks of stone in order to provide a foundation of cut stone for the temple.

NIV 18 The craftsmen of Solomon and Hiram and workers from Byblos cut and prepared the timber and stone for the building of the temple.
