1 Kings 5

HNV 1 Hiram king of Tzor sent his servants to Shlomo; for he had heard that they had anointed him king in the room of his father: for Hiram was ever a lover of David. 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. HNV 2 Shlomo sent to Hiram, saying, NIV 2 Solomon sent back this message to Hiram: HNV 3 You know how that David my father could not build a house for the name of the LORD his God for the wars which were about him on every side, until the LORD put them under the soles of his feet. 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. HNV 4 But now the LORD my God has given me rest on every side; there is neither adversary, nor evil occurrence. NIV 4 But now the LORD my God has given me rest on every side, and there is no adversary or disaster. HNV 5 Behold, I purpose to build a house for the name of the LORD my God, as the LORD spoke to David my father, saying, Your son, whom I will set on your throne in your room, he shall build the house 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.’ HNV 6 Now therefore command you that they cut me cedar trees out of Levanon; and my servants shall be with your servants; and I will give you hire for your servants according to all that you shall say: for you know that there is not among us any who knows how to cut timber like the Tzidonim. 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.” HNV 7 It happened, when Hiram heard the words of Shlomo, that he rejoiced greatly, and said, Blessed be the LORD this day, who has given to David a wise son over this great people. 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.” HNV 8 Hiram sent to Shlomo, saying, I have heard [the message] which you have sent to me: I will do all your desire concerning timber of cedar, and concerning timber of fir. 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. HNV 9 My servants shall bring them down from Levanon to the sea; and I will make them into rafts to go by sea to the place that you shall appoint me, and will cause them to be broken up there, and you shall receive them; and you shall accomplish my desire, in giving food for my household. 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.” HNV 10 So Hiram gave Shlomo timber of cedar and timber of fir according to all his desire. NIV 10 In this way Hiram kept Solomon supplied with all the cedar and juniper logs he wanted, HNV 11 Shlomo gave Hiram twenty thousand measures of wheat for food to his household, and twenty measures of pure oil: thus gave Shlomo to Hiram year by year. NIV 11 and Solomon gave Hiram twenty thousand cors of wheat as food for his household, in addition to twenty thousand baths of pressed olive oil. Solomon continued to do this for Hiram year after year. HNV 12 The LORD gave Shlomo wisdom, as he promised him; and there was shalom between Hiram and Shlomo; and they two made a league together. NIV 12 The LORD gave Solomon wisdom, just as he had promised him. There were peaceful relations between Hiram and Solomon, and the two of them made a treaty. HNV 13 King Shlomo raised a levy out of all Yisra'el; and the levy was thirty thousand men. NIV 13 King Solomon conscripted laborers from all Israel—thirty thousand men. HNV 14 He sent them to Levanon, ten thousand a month by courses; a month they were in Levanon, and two months at home; and Adoniram was over the men subject to forced labor. NIV 14 He sent them off to Lebanon in shifts of ten thousand a month, so that they spent one month in Lebanon and two months at home. Adoniram was in charge of the forced labor. HNV 15 Shlomo had seventy thousand who bore burdens, and eighty thousand who were stone cutters in the mountains; NIV 15 Solomon had seventy thousand carriers and eighty thousand stonecutters in the hills, HNV 16 besides Shlomo's chief officers who were over the work, three thousand and three hundred, who bore rule over the people who labored in the work. NIV 16 as well as thirty-three hundred foremen who supervised the project and directed the workers. HNV 17 The king commanded, and they hewed out great stones, costly stones, to lay the foundation of the house with worked stone. NIV 17 At the king’s command they removed from the quarry large blocks of high-grade stone to provide a foundation of dressed stone for the temple. HNV 18 Shlomo's builders and Hiram's builders and the Givli did fashion them, and prepared the timber and the stones to build the house. 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.
