1 Kings 9:9-19

CJB 9 But the answer will be, 'It's because they abandoned ADONAI their God, who brought their ancestors out of the land of Egypt, and took hold of other gods, worshipping and serving them; this is why ADONAI brought all these calamities on them.'" NIV 9 People will answer, ‘Because they have forsaken the LORD their God, who brought their ancestors out of Egypt, and have embraced other gods, worshiping and serving them—that is why the LORD brought all this disaster on them.’ ” CJB 10 At the end of twenty years, during which time Shlomo had built the two buildings, the house of ADONAI and the royal palace, NIV 10 At the end of twenty years, during which Solomon built these two buildings—the temple of the LORD and the royal palace— CJB 11 King Shlomo gave Hiram twenty cities in the land of the Galil (recall that Hiram the king of Tzor had supplied Shlomo with cedar and cypress logs and with all the gold Shlomo wanted). NIV 11 King Solomon gave twenty towns in Galilee to Hiram king of Tyre, because Hiram had supplied him with all the cedar and juniper and gold he wanted. CJB 12 Hiram came over from Tzor to see the cities Shlomo had given him, but he was not satisfied with them. NIV 12 But when Hiram went from Tyre to see the towns that Solomon had given him, he was not pleased with them. CJB 13 He said, "What kind of cities are these which you have given me, my brother?" So they have been called the land of Kabul [good for nothing] till this day. NIV 13 “What kind of towns are these you have given me, my brother?” he asked. And he called them the Land of Kabul, a name they have to this day. CJB 14 (Hiram had sent the king four tons of gold.) NIV 14 Now Hiram had sent to the king 120 talents of gold. CJB 15 Following is the account of the forced labor levied by King Shlomo for building the house of ADONAI, his own palace, the Millo, the wall of Yerushalayim, and the cities of Hatzor, Megiddo and Gezer. NIV 15 Here is the account of the forced labor King Solomon conscripted to build the LORD’s temple, his own palace, the terraces, the wall of Jerusalem, and Hazor, Megiddo and Gezer. CJB 16 Pharaoh king of Egypt had gone up, taken Gezer, burned it to the ground and killed the Kena'ani living in the city; then he had given it as a dowry for his daughter, Shlomo's wife. NIV 16 (Pharaoh king of Egypt had attacked and captured Gezer. He had set it on fire. He killed its Canaanite inhabitants and then gave it as a wedding gift to his daughter, Solomon’s wife. CJB 17 So Shlomo rebuilt Gezer; he also built Lower Beit-Horon, NIV 17 And Solomon rebuilt Gezer.) He built up Lower Beth Horon, CJB 18 Ba'alat, Tadmor in the desert, in the land, NIV 18 Baalath, and Tadmor in the desert, within his land, CJB 19 as well as all the cities that Shlomo had for storing supplies, the cities for his chariots, the cities for his horsemen, and the other buildings Shlomo wanted to build for himself in Yerushalayim, in the L'vanon and throughout the land he ruled. NIV 19 as well as all his store cities and the towns for his chariots and for his horses —whatever he desired to build in Jerusalem, in Lebanon and throughout all the territory he ruled.
