1 Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David. He also sent cedar logs, stonemasons and carpenters to build a palace for him. 2 David knew that Jehovah had established him as king over Israel and that his kingdom had been highly exalted for the sake of his people Israel. 3 In Jerusalem David took more wives and became the father of more sons and daughters. 4 These are the names of the children born to him there: Shammua, Shobab, Nathan, Solomon, 5 Ibhar, Elishua, Elpelet, 6 Nogah, Nepheg, Japhia, 7 Elishama, Beeliada and Eliphelet. 8 The Philistines heard that David had been anointed king over all Israel. So they went up in full force to search for him. David heard about it and went out to meet them. 9 The Philistines raided the Valley of Rephaim. 10 David inquired of God: »Should I attack the Philistines? Will you hand them over to me?« Jehovah answered him: »Go, I will hand them over to you.« 11 David and his men went to Baal Perazim. He defeated them there. He said: »As waters break out, God has broken out against my enemies by my hand.« So that place was called Baal Perazim (the lord who breaks out). 12 The Philistines abandoned their gods. So David gave orders to burn them in the fire. 13 Once more the Philistines raided the valley. 14 David inquired of God again, and God answered him: »Do not go straight up, but circle around them and attack them in front of the balsam trees. 15 »As soon as you hear the sound of marching in the tops of the balsam trees, move out to battle. That will mean God has gone out in front of you to strike the Philistine army.« 16 David did as God commanded him. They struck down the Philistine army all the way from Gibeon to Gezer. 17 Thus David’s fame spread throughout every land. Jehovah made all the nations fear him.

He was good, loyal, and honest in his relation with you. You have continued to show him your great and constant love by giving him a son who today rules in his place. 7 »O Jehovah God, you allowed me to succeed my father as king, even though I am very young and do not know how to rule. 8 »I am among the people you have chosen to be your own. They are a people who are so many that they cannot be counted. 9 ‘Give me the wisdom I need to rule your people with justice. Help me know the difference between good and evil. Otherwise, how would I ever be able to rule this great people of yours?« 10 Jehovah was pleased that Solomon asked for this. 11 He said to him: »Because you have asked for the wisdom to rule justly, instead of long life for yourself or riches or the death of your enemies,
1 Solomon took thirteen years to build a palace for himself. 2 The Hall of the Forest of Lebanon was one hundred and fifty feet long, seventy-five feet wide, and forty-five feet high. 3 It had three rows of cedar pillars, fifteen in each row, with cedar beams resting on them. The ceiling was of cedar, extending over storerooms, which were supported by the pillars. 4 On each of the two sidewalls there were three rows of windows. 5 All the doors and doorframes were rectangular. There were three doors facing each other on opposite sides of the palace. 6 Solomon made the Hall of Pillars seventy-five feet long and forty-five feet wide. In front of the hall was an entrance hall with pillars. 7 He made the hall for the throne. It was a place where he could sit on his throne and judge. The hall was covered with cedar from floor to ceiling. 8 His own private quarters were in a different location than the hall containing the throne. They were similar in design. Solomon also built private quarters like this for his wife, Pharaoh's daughter. 9 From the foundation to the roof, all these buildings, including the large courtyard, were built with high-grade stone blocks. The stone blocks were cut to size and trimmed with saws on their inner and outer faces. 10 The foundation was made with large, high-grade expensive stones. Some were twelve feet and others fifteen feet long. 11 Above the foundation were cedar beams and high-grade expensive stone blocks, which were cut to size. 12 The large courtyard had three layers of cut stone blocks and a layer of cedar beams, like the inner courtyard of Jehovah’s Temple and the entrance hall.

8 Then Hiram sent Solomon the following message: »I received your message. I am ready to do what you ask. I will provide the cedars and the pine trees. 9 »My men will bring the logs from Lebanon to the sea and will tie them together in rafts to float them down the coast to the place you choose. My men will untie them. There your men will take charge of them. On your part, I would like you to supply the food for my men.« 10 So Hiram supplied Solomon with all the cedar and pine logs he wanted. 11 Solomon provided Hiram with one hundred thousand bushels of wheat and one hundred and ten thousand gallons of pure olive oil every year to feed his men. 12 Jehovah kept his promise and gave Solomon wisdom. There was peace between Hiram and Solomon for they made a treaty with each other.
18 Solomon's and Hiram's workers and men from the city of Gebal prepared the stones and the timber to build the Temple.

6 So Ahab called in the prophets, about four hundred of them, and asked them: »Should I attack Ramoth, or not?« They answered: »Attack, Jehovah will give you victory.«
15 He appeared before King Ahab. The king asked him: »Micaiah, should King Jehoshaphat and I go and attack Ramoth, or not?« »Attack!« Micaiah answered. »You will win. Jehovah will give you victory.« 16 But Ahab replied: »Tell the truth when you speak to me in the name of Jehovah! How many times do I have to tell you that?« 17 Micaiah answered: »I can see the army of Israel scattered over the hills like sheep without a shepherd.« Jehovah said: »These men have no leader. Let them go home in peace.«
6 Jehovah made the Syrians hear what sounded like the advance of a large army with horses and chariots. The Syrians thought that the king of Israel had hired Hittite and Egyptian kings and their armies to attack them.

These four were by Bathsheba daughter of Ammiel. 6 There were also Ibhar, Elishua, Eliphelet,

I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel for a very ong time.’« 11 »Now, my son, Jehovah is with you, and may you have success and build the house of Jehovah your God, as he said you would. 12 »May Jehovah give you discretion and understanding when he puts you in command over Israel, so that you may keep the law of Jehovah your God.

1 Why do the nations conspire together and rage? Why do the peoples plot in vain? 2 The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against Jehovah and against his Anointed One. 3 They say: »Let us break their chains of control and throw off their oppressive rule.« 4 The One who dwells in heaven laughs. Jehovah scoffs at them. 5 Then he rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his rage (fury). He says: 6 »I have installed (anointed) (established) my king on Zion, my holy mountain.«
13 Jehovah thundered in the heavens. The Most High made his voice heard with hailstones and lightning. 14 He shot his arrows and scattered them. He flashed streaks of lightning to agitate (disturb and trouble) them. 15 The ocean floor could be seen. The foundations of the earth were laid bare at your stern warning, O Jehovah, at the blast of the breath from your nostrils.

No wicked man will oppress him. 23 I will beat down his adversaries before him. I will strike those who hate him. 24 But my faithfulness and my loving kindness will be with him. In my name, his horn (power) (strength) will be exalted (increased). 25 I will set his hand also on the sea, and his right hand on the rivers. 26 He will call to me: »You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation!« 27 I will also appoint him my firstborn, the highest of the kings of the earth. 28 I will keep my loving kindness for him forevermore. My covenant will stand firm with him. 29 I will make his descendants endure forever and his throne like the days of heaven. 30 If his descendants abandon my law and do not live by my rules, 31 if they violate my statutes and do not obey my commandments, 32 then with a rod I will punish their transgression and their crimes with beatings. 33 But I will not take my loving kindness away from him or allow my truth to become perverted. 34 I will not dishonor my promise or alter my own agreement. 35 On my holiness I have taken an oath: I will not lie to David. 36 His descendants will last forever.

1 This is WHAT JEHOVAH SAYS ABOUT CYRUS, his anointed one: »I have held him by his right hand so he could conquer the nations ahead of him; that he could strip kings of their power, and open doors ahead of him so that the gates would not be shut. 2 »I will go ahead of you, Cyrus.

I will panel it with cedar and paint it bright red (vermilion).’ 15 Do you become a king because you are competing in cedar? Did not your father eat and drink and do justice and righteousness? Then it was well with him.
