1 H8010 Now Solomon H559 purposed H1129 to build H1004 a house H8034 for the name H3068 of Yahweh, H1004 and a house H4438 for his kingdom.
2 H8010 Solomon H5608 counted out H7657 seventy H505 thousand H376 men H5449 to bear burdens, H8084 and eighty H505 thousand H2672 men who were stone cutters H2022 in the mountains, H7969 and three H505 thousand H8337 and six H3967 hundred H5329 to oversee them.
3 H8010 Solomon H7971 sent H2361 to Huram H4428 the king H6865 of Tyre, H559 saying, H6213 "As you dealt H1732 with David H1 my father, H7971 and sent H730 him cedars H1129 to build H1004 him a house H3427 in which to dwell, so deal with me.
4 H1129 Behold, I am about to build H1004 a house H8034 for the name H3068 of Yahweh H430 my God, H6942 to dedicate H6999 it to him, and to burn H6440 before H7004 him incense H5561 of sweet H8548 spices, and for the continual H4635 show bread, 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 set feasts H3068 of Yahweh H430 our God. H5769 This is an ordinance forever H3478 to Israel.
5 H1004 "The house H1129 which I build H1419 is great; H430 for our God H1419 is great H430 above all gods.
6 H6113 But who is able H1129 to build H1004 him a house, H8064 since heaven H8064 and the heaven H8064 of heavens H3557 can't contain H1129 him? who am I then, that I should build H1004 him a house, H518 except H6999 just to burn incense H6440 before him?
7 H7971 "Now therefore send H376 me 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 who knows how H6605 to engrave H2450 engravings, to be with the skillful men H3063 who are with me in Judah H3389 and in Jerusalem, H1732 whom David H1 my father H3559 provided.
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 know H3772 how 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 H1419 shall be great H6381 and wonderful.
10 H5414 Behold, I will give H5650 to your servants, H2404 the cutters H3772 who 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 Yahweh H160 loves H5971 his people, H5414 he has made H4428 you king over them."
12 H2361 Huram H559 continued, H1288 "Blessed H3068 be Yahweh, H430 the 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 discretion H2450 and understanding, H1129 that should build H1004 a house H3068 for Yahweh, H1004 and a house H4438 for his kingdom.
13 H7971 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 kind of engraving, H2803 and to devise H4284 any device; H5414 that there may be a place H2450 appointed 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 to 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 Solomon H5608 numbered H582 all the foreigners H776 who 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 one hundred H2572 fifty - H7969 three H505 thousand H8337 six H3967 hundred.
