Tyndale Bible

1 Kings 5

Hiram, sending to congratulate Solomon, is certified of his purpose to build the Temple, and desired to furnish him with timber thereto.

1 Kings 5:1 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And Hiram king of Tyre sent his servants unto Solomon; for he had heard that they had anointed him king in the room of his father: for Hiram was ever a lover of David. 1 Kings 5:2 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And Solomon sent to Hiram, saying, 1 Kings 5:3 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Thou knowest how that David my father could not build a house unto 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. 1 Kings 5:4 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} But now the LORD my God hath given me rest on every side, [so that there is] neither adversary nor evil occurrent. 1 Kings 5:5 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And, behold, I purpose to build a house unto the name of the LORD my God, as the LORD spoke unto David my father, saying, Thy son, whom I will set upon thy throne in thy room, he shall build a house unto my name. 1 Kings 5:6 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Now therefore command thou that they hew me cedar trees out of Lebanon; and my servants shall be with thy servants: and unto thee will I give hire for thy servants according to all that thou shalt appoint: for thou knowest that [there is] not among us any that can skill to hew timber like unto the Sidonians.

Hiram, blessing God for Solomon, and requesting food for his family, furnisheth him with trees.

1 Kings 5:7 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And it came to pass, when Hiram heard the words of Solomon, that he rejoiced greatly, and said, Blessed [be] the LORD this day, which hath given unto David a wise son over this great people. 1 Kings 5:8 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And Hiram sent to Solomon, saying, I have considered the things which thou sentest to me for: [and] I will do all thy desire concerning timber of cedar, and concerning timber of fir. 1 Kings 5:9 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} My servants shall bring [them] down from Lebanon unto the sea: and I will convey them by sea in floats unto the place that thou shalt appoint me, and will cause them to be discharged there, and thou shalt receive [them]: and thou shalt accomplish my desire, in giving food for my household. 1 Kings 5:10 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} So Hiram gave Solomon cedar trees and fir trees [according to] all his desire. 1 Kings 5:11 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And Solomon gave Hiram twenty thousand measures of wheat [for] food to his household, and twenty measures of pure oil: thus gave Solomon to Hiram year by year. 1 Kings 5:12 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the LORD gave Solomon wisdom, as he promised him: and there was peace between Hiram and Solomon; and they two made a league together.

The number of Solomon's workmen and labourers.

1 Kings 5:13 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And king Solomon raised a levy out of all Israel; and the levy was thirty thousand men. 1 Kings 5:14 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And he sent them to Lebanon, ten thousand a month by courses: a month they were in Lebanon, [and] two months at home: and Adoniram [was] over the levy. 1 Kings 5:15 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And Solomon had threescore and ten thousand that bore burdens, and fourscore thousand hewers in the mountains; 1 Kings 5:16 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Beside the chief of Solomon's officers which [were] over the work, three thousand and three hundred, which ruled over the people that wrought in the work. 1 Kings 5:17 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the king commanded, and they brought great stones, costly stones, [and] hewed stones, to lay the foundation of the house. 1 Kings 5:18 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And Solomon's builders and Hiram's builders did hew [them], and the stonesquarers: so they prepared timber and stones to build the house.
