2 Chronicles 2:3 And Salomon sent to Hiram þe kynge of Tire sayinge. As thou dydest deale with Dauid my father and dydest send him Cedar wodde, to buylde him an house to dwelle in, euen so deale with me: 2 Chronicles 2:4 For I am aboute to buylde an house for the name of the Lorde my God, to offre vnto him holy thinges, and to burne swete encense, and to sett shewbreed before him continuallye, to offre burnt sacrifyces of the mornynge and euenynge: on the Saboth dayes, in þe fyrst daye of euery newe moone, & in the solempne feastes of the Lorde oure God: for it is an ordinaunce to be continually kepte of Israel. 2 Chronicles 2:5 And þe house which I buylde shalbe great: for great is oure God aboue all Gods. 2 Chronicles 2:6 But who is able to buylde him an house: when that heauen, and heauen aboue all heauens is not able to receaue him? what am I then that I shulde buylde hym an house? nay, but euen to burne sacrifice before him, shall this buyldinge be: 2 Chronicles 2:7 sende me nowe therfore a connynge man, þt can worcke in golde and syluer, in brasse and yron, in purple, cremosin and yelowe sylke, and that can skylle to graue, with the connynge men that are with me in Iuda and Ierusalem, whom Dauid my father dyd prepare. 2 Chronicles 2:8 Send me also Cedar trees, pyne trees & Algume trees out of Libanon.

For the house which I am determyned to builde, shalbe wonderfull greate. 2 Chronicles 2:10 And beholde, for the vse of thy seruauntes the cutters and hewers of tymbre: I haue geuen .xx. thousande quarters of beaten wheate, and .xx. thousande quarters of barleye, and .xx. thousande bates of wyne, and .xx. thousande bates of oyle.

Huram sendeth him a kind answer.

2 Chronicles 2:11 And Hiram kynge of Tire answered in wrytinge, which he sent to Salomon. Because þe Lorde hath loued his people, therfore hath he made the kynge ouer them. 2 Chronicles 2:12 And Hiram sayde moreouer: blessed be the Lorde God of Israel which made heauen and erth, and that hath geuen Dauid the kynge a wyse sonne, and one þt hath discrecion, prudence, and vnderstandynge, to buylde an house for the Lorde, & a palace for him selfe. 2 Chronicles 2:13 And nowe I haue sent a wyse man, and a man of vnderstandynge (whom my father Huram dyd vse) 2 Chronicles 2:14 the sonne of a woman of the daughters of Dan, and his father was a man of Tire, and he can skylle to worke in gold and syluer, in brasse and yron, in stone and tymbre, in purple and yelowe sylke, in fyne whyte and cremosin: and can graue sondrie maner of grauinges, and to fynde out dyuerse maner of sotle worke that shalbe sett before him, with thy connynge men, & with the connynge men of my Lorde Dauid thy father. 2 Chronicles 2:15 Nowe therfore, þe wheate, and barleye, oyle and wyne which my Lorde hath spoken of, let him sende vnto his seruauntes. 2 Chronicles 2:16 And we will cut wood in Libano, as moch as thou shalt nede, and will bring it to þe, in shippes by see to Iapho, from whence thou mayst carye them to Ierusalem.
