1 Kings 5:6-10

5:6 So now order some cedars of Lebanon to be cut for me. My servants will work with your servants. I will pay your servants whatever you say is appropriate, for you know that we have no one among us who knows how to cut down trees like the Sidonians.”

5:7 When Hiram heard Solomon’s message, he was very happy. He said, “The Lord is worthy of praise today because he 1  has given David a wise son to rule over this great nation.” 5:8 Hiram then sent this message to Solomon: “I received 2  the message you sent to me. I will give you all the cedars and evergreens you need. 3  5:9 My servants will bring the timber down from Lebanon to the sea. I will send it by sea in raft-like bundles to the place you designate. 4  There I will separate the logs 5  and you can carry them away. In exchange you will supply the food I need for my royal court.” 6 

5:10 So Hiram supplied the cedars and evergreens Solomon needed, 7
