And SolomonH8010 determinedH559 to buildH1129 an houseH1004 for the nameH8034 of the LORD,H3068 and an houseH1004 for his kingdom.H4438
And SolomonH8010 toldH5608 out three scoreH7657 and ten thousandH7239 H505 menH376 to bearH5445 burdens,H5449 and fourscoreH8084 thousandH7239 H505 to hewH2672 in the mountain,H2022 and threeH7969 thousandH7239 H505 and sixH8337 hundredH3967 to overseeH5329 them.
And SolomonH8010 sentH7971 to HuramH2361 the kingH4428 of Tyre,H6865 saying,H559 As you did dealH6213 with DavidH1732 my father,H25 and did sendH7971 him cedarsH730 to buildH1129 him an houseH1004 to dwellH3427 therein, even so deal with me.
Behold,H2009 I buildH1129 an houseH1004 to the nameH8034 of the LORDH3068 my God,H430 to dedicateH6942 it to him, and to burnH6999 beforeH6440 him sweetH5561 incense,H7004 and for the continualH8548 show bread,H4635 and for the burntH5930 offerings morningH1242 and evening,H6153 on the sabbaths,H7676 and on the newH2320 moons,H2320 and on the solemnH4150 feastsH4150 of the LORDH3068 our God.H430 ThisH2063 is an ordinance for everH5769 to Israel.H3478
And the houseH1004 whichH834 I buildH1129 is great:H1419 for greatH1419 is our GodH430 above allH3605 gods.H430
But whoH4310 is ableH3581 to buildH1129 him an house,H1004 seeing the heavenH8064 and heavenH8064 of heavensH8064 cannotH3808 containH3557 him? whoH4310 am I then, that I should buildH1129 him an house,H1004 saveH518 only to burnH6999 sacrifice beforeH6440 him?
SendH7971 me nowH6258 therefore a manH376 cunningH2450 to workH6213 in gold,H2091 and in silver,H3701 and in brass,H5178 and in iron,H1270 and in purple,H710 and crimson,H3758 and blue,H8504 and that can skillH3045 to graveH6603 with the cunningH2450 men that are with me in JudahH3063 and in Jerusalem,H3389 whomH834 DavidH1732 my fatherH25 did provide.H3559
SendH7971 me also cedarH730 trees, firH1265 trees, and algumH418 trees, out of Lebanon:H3844 for I knowH3045 that your servantsH5650 can skillH3045 to cutH3772 timberH6086 in Lebanon;H3844 and, behold,H2009 my servantsH5650 shall be with your servants,H5650
Even to prepareH3559 me timberH6086 in abundance:H7230 for the houseH1004 whichH834 I am about to buildH1129 shall be wonderfulH6381 great.H1419
And, behold,H2009 I will giveH5414 to your servants,H5650 the hewersH2404 that cutH3772 timber,H6086 twentyH6242 thousandH7239 H505 measuresH3734 of beatenH4347 wheat,H2406 and twentyH6242 thousandH7239 H505 measuresH3734 of barley,H8184 and twentyH6242 thousandH7239 H505 bathsH1324 of wine,H3196 and twentyH6242 thousandH7239 H505 bathsH1324 of oil.H8081
Then HuramH2438 the kingH4428 of TyreH6865 answeredH559 in writing,H3791 which he sentH7971 to Solomon,H8010 Because the LORDH3068 has lovedH160 his people,H5971 he has madeH5414 you kingH4427 overH5921 them.
HuramH2361 saidH559 moreover, BlessedH1288 be the LORDH3068 GodH430 of Israel,H3478 that madeH6213 heavenH8064 and earth,H776 whoH834 has givenH5414 to DavidH1732 the kingH4428 a wiseH2450 son,H1121 enduedH3045 with prudenceH7922 and understanding,H998 that might buildH1129 an houseH1004 for the LORD,H3068 and an houseH1004 for his kingdom.H4438
And nowH6258 I have sentH7971 a cunningH2450 man,H376 enduedH3045 with understanding,H998 of HuramH2438 my father's,H1
The sonH1121 of a womanH802 of the daughtersH1323 of Dan,H1835 and his fatherH25 was a manH376 of Tyre,H6876 skillfulH3045 to workH6213 in gold,H2091 and in silver,H3701 in brass,H5178 in iron,H1270 in stone,H68 and in timber,H6086 in purple,H713 in blue,H8504 and in fine linen,H948 and in crimson;H3758 also to graveH6605 anyH3605 manner of engraving,H6603 and to findH2803 out everyH3605 deviceH4284 whichH834 shall be putH5414 to him, with your cunningH2450 men, and with the cunningH2450 men of my lordH113 DavidH1732 your father.H25
NowH6258 therefore the wheat,H2406 and the barley,H8184 the oil,H8081 and the wine,H3196 whichH834 my lordH113 has spokenH559 of, let him sendH7971 to his servants:H5650
And we will cutH3772 woodH6086 out of Lebanon,H3844 as muchH3605 as you shall need:H6878 and we will bringH935 it to you in floatsH7513 by seaH3220 to Joppa;H3305 and you shall carryH5927 it up to Jerusalem.H3389
And SolomonH8010 numberedH5608 allH3605 the strangersH582 H1616 that were in the landH776 of Israel,H3478 afterH310 the numberingH5610 with whichH834 DavidH1732 his fatherH25 had numberedH5608 them; and they were foundH4672 an hundredH3967 and fiftyH2572 thousandH7239 H505 and threeH7969 thousandH7239 H505 and sixH8337 hundred.H3967
And he setH6213 three scoreH7657 and ten thousandH7239 H505 of them to be bearersH5449 of burdens,H5449 and fourscoreH8084 thousandH7239 H505 to be hewersH2672 in the mountain,H2022 and threeH7969 thousandH7239 H505 and sixH8337 hundredH3967 overseersH5329 to set the peopleH5971 a work.H5647
