1 H8010 And Solomon H559 determined H1129 to build H1004 an house H8034 for the name H3068 of the Lord, H1004 and an house H4438 for his kingdom.
2 H8010 And Solomon H5608 told out H7657 sixty and ten H505 thousand H376 men H5449 to carry burdens, H8084 and eighty H505 thousand H2672 to hew H2022 in the mountain, H7969 and three H505 thousand H8337 and six H3967 hundred H5329 to oversee them.
3 H8010 And Solomon H7971 sent H2361 to Huram H4428 the king H6865 of Tyre, H559 saying, H6213 As you did deal H1732 with David H1 my father, H7971 and did send H730 him cedars H1129 to build H1004 him an house H3427 to live in it, even so deal with me.
4 H1129 Behold, I build H1004 an house H8034 to the name H3068 of the Lord H430 my God, H6942 to dedicate H6999 it to him, and to burn H6440 before H5561 him sweet H7004 incense, H8548 and for the continual H4635 showbread, H5930 and for the burnt offerings H1242 morning H6153 and evening, H7676 on the sabbaths, H2320 and on the new moons, H4150 and on the solemn feasts H3068 of the Lord H430 our God. H5769 This is an ordinance for ever H3478 to Israel.
5 H1004 And the house H1129 which I build H1419 is great: H1419 for great H430 is our God H430 above all gods.
6 H6113 But who is able H1129 to build H1004 him a house, H8064 seeing the heaven H8064 and heaven H8064 of heavens H3557 cannot contain H1129 him? who am I then, that I should build H1004 him an house, H518 save only H6999 to burn sacrifice H6440 before him?
7 H7971 Send H376 me now therefore a man H2450 skillful H6213 to work H2091 in gold, H3701 and in silver, H5178 and in brass, H1270 and in iron, H710 and in purple, H3758 and crimson, H8504 and blue, H3045 and that has skill H6605 to engrave H2450 with the skillful men H3063 that are with me in Judah H3389 and in Jerusalem, H1732 whom David H1 my father H3559 did provide.
8 H7971 Send H730 me also cedar H6086 trees, H1265 fir trees, H418 and algum trees, H3844 out of Lebanon: H3045 for I know H5650 that your servants H3045 have skill H3772 to cut H6086 timber H3844 in Lebanon; H5650 and, behold, my servants H5650 shall be with your servants,
9 H3559 Even to prepare H6086 me timber H7230 in abundance: H1004 for the house H1129 which I am about to build H6381 shall be wonderfully H1419 great.
10 H5414 And, behold, I will give H5650 to your servants, H2404 the hewers H3772 that cut H6086 timber, H6242 twenty H505 thousand H3734 measures H4347 of beaten H2406 wheat, H6242 and twenty H505 thousand H3734 measures H8184 of barley, H6242 and twenty H505 thousand H1324 baths H3196 of wine, H6242 and twenty H505 thousand H1324 baths H8081 of oil.
11 H2361 Then Huram H4428 the king H6865 of Tyre H559 answered H3791 in writing, H7971 which he sent H8010 to Solomon, H3068 Because the Lord H160 has loved H5971 his people, H5414 he has made H4428 you king over them.
12 H2361 Huram H559 said H1288 moreover, Blessed H3068 be the Lord H430 God H3478 of Israel, H6213 that made H8064 heaven H776 and earth, H5414 who has given H1732 to David H4428 the king H2450 a wise H1121 son, H3045 endowed H7922 with prudence H998 and understanding, H1129 that might build H1004 a house H3068 for the Lord, H1004 and a house H4438 for his kingdom.
13 H7971 And now I have sent H2450 a skillful H376 man, H3045 endowed H998 with understanding, H2361 of Huram H1 my father's,
14 H1121 The son H802 of a woman H1323 of the daughters H1835 of Dan, H1 and his father H376 was a man H6876 of Tyre, H3045 skillful H6213 to work H2091 in gold, H3701 and in silver, H5178 in brass, H1270 in iron, H68 in stone, H6086 and in timber, H713 in purple, H8504 in blue, H948 and in fine linen, H3758 and in crimson; H6605 also to engrave H6603 any manner of graving, H2803 and to find out H4284 every device H5414 which shall be put H2450 to him, with your skillful men, H2450 and with the skillful men H113 of my lord H1732 David H1 your father.
15 H2406 Now therefore the wheat, H8184 and the barley, H8081 the oil, H3196 and the wine, H113 which my lord H559 has spoken H7971 of, let him send H5650 unto his servants:
16 H3772 And we will cut H6086 wood H3844 out of Lebanon, H6878 as much as you shall need: H935 and we will bring H7513 it to you in floats H3220 by sea H3305 to Joppa; H5927 and you shall carry it up H3389 to Jerusalem.
17 H8010 And Solomon H5608 numbered H582 all the strangers H776 that were in the land H3478 of Israel, H310 after H5610 the numbering H1732 with which David H1 his father H5608 had numbered H4672 them; and they were found H3967 an hundred H2572 and fifty H505 thousand H7969 and three H505 thousand H8337 and six H3967 hundred.
