1 H8010 And Solomon H559 [H8799] determined H1129 [H8800] 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 [H8799] numbered out H7657 seventy H505 thousand H376 men H5449 to bear burdens H8084 , and eighty H505 H376 thousand H2672 [H8802] to hew H2022 in the mountain H7969 , and three H505 thousand H8337 and six H3967 hundred H5329 [H8764] to oversee them.
3 H8010 And Solomon H7971 [H8799] sent H2361 to Huram H4428 the king H6865 of Tyre H559 [H8800] , saying H6213 [H8804] , As thou didst deal H1732 with David H1 my father H7971 [H8799] , and didst send H730 him cedars H1129 [H8800] to build H1004 him an house H3427 [H8800] to dwell in, even so deal with me.
4 H1129 [H8802] Behold, I build H1004 an house H8034 to the name H3068 of the LORD H430 my God H6942 [H8687] , to dedicate H6999 [H8687] 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 [H8802] which I build H1419 is great H1419 : for great H430 is our God H430 above all gods.
6 H6113 H3581 [H8799] But who is able H1129 [H8800] to build H1004 him an house H8064 , seeing the heaven H8064 and heaven H8064 of heavens H3557 [H8770] cannot contain H1129 [H8799] him? who am I then, that I should build H1004 him an house H518 , except only H6999 [H8687] to burn sacrifice H6440 before him?
7 H7971 [H8798] Send H376 me now therefore a man H2450 skilful H6213 [H8800] 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 [H8802] , and that hath skill H6605 H6603 [H8763] to engrave H2450 with the skilful men H3063 that are with me in Judah H3389 and in Jerusalem H1732 , whom David H1 my father H3559 [H8689] provided.
8 H7971 [H8798] Send H730 me also cedar H6086 trees H1265 , fir trees H418 , and algum trees H3844 , out of Lebanon H3045 [H8804] : for I know H5650 that thy servants H3045 [H8802] have skill H3772 [H8800] to cut H6086 timber H3844 in Lebanon H5650 ; and, behold, my servants H5650 shall be with thy servants,
9 H3559 [H8687] Even to prepare H6086 me timber H7230 in abundance H1004 : for the house H1129 [H8802] which I am about to build H1419 shall be great H6381 [H8687] and wonderful.
10 H5414 [H8804] And, behold, I will give H5650 to thy servants H2404 [H8802] , the hewers H3772 [H8802] 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 [H8799] answered H3791 in writing H7971 [H8799] , which he sent H8010 to Solomon H3068 , Because the LORD H160 hath loved H5971 his people H5414 [H8804] , he hath made H4428 thee king over them.
12 H2361 Huram H559 [H8799] said H1288 [H8803] moreover, Blessed H3068 be the LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel H6213 [H8804] , that made H8064 heaven H776 and earth H5414 [H8804] , who hath given H1732 to David H4428 the king H2450 a wise H1121 son H3045 [H8802] , endued H7922 with prudence H998 and understanding H1129 [H8799] , that may build H1004 an house H3068 for the LORD H1004 , and an house H4438 for his kingdom.
13 H7971 [H8804] And now I have sent H2450 a skilful H376 man H3045 [H8802] , endued 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 [H8802] , skilful H6213 [H8800] 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 [H8763] ; also to engrave H6603 any manner of engraving H2803 [H8800] , and to find out H4284 every device H5414 [H8735] which shall be put H2450 to him, with thy skilful men H2450 , and with the skilful men H113 of my lord H1732 David H1 thy father.
15 H2406 Now therefore the wheat H8184 , and the barley H8081 , the oil H3196 , and the wine H113 , which my lord H559 [H8804] hath spoken H7971 [H8799] of, let him send H5650 to his servants:
16 H3772 [H8799] And we will cut H6086 wood H3844 out of Lebanon H6878 , as much as thou shalt need H935 [H8686] : and we will bring H7513 it to thee in floats H3220 by sea H3305 to Joppa H5927 [H8686] ; and thou mayest convey it H3389 to Jerusalem.
17 H8010 And Solomon H5608 [H8799] numbered H582 H1616 all the strangers H776 that were in the land H3478 of Israel H310 , after H5610 the numbering H1732 which David H1 his father H5608 [H8804] had numbered H4672 [H8735] them; and they were found H3967 an hundred H2572 and fifty H505 thousand H7969 and three H505 thousand H8337 and six H3967 hundred.
18 H6213 [H8799] And he set H7657 seventy H505 thousand H5449 of them to be bearers of burdens H8084 , and eighty H505 thousand H2672 [H8802] to be hewers H2022 in the mountain H7969 , and three H505 thousand H8337 and six H3967 hundred H5329 [H8764] overseers H5647 0 to set H5971 the people H5647 [H8687] to work.
