2:3 And Solomon [H8010] sent [H7971] to Huram [H2361] the king [H4428] of Tyre [H6865] , saying [H559] , As thou didst deal [H6213] with David [H1732] my father [H1] , and didst send [H7971] him cedars [H730] to build [H1129] him an house [H1004] to dwell [H3427] therein, [even so deal with me].(Huram: or, Hiram)

2:6 But who is able [H6113] [H3581] to build [H1129] him an house [H1004] , seeing the heaven [H8064] and heaven [H8064] of heavens [H8064] cannot contain [H3557] him? who [am] I then, that I should build [H1129] him an house [H1004] , save only [H518] to burn sacrifice [H6999] before [H6440] him?(is able: Heb. hath retained, or, obtained strength)

2:12 Huram [H2361] said [H559] moreover, Blessed [H1288] [be] the LORD [H3068] God [H430] of Israel [H3478] , that made [H6213] heaven [H8064] and earth [H776] , who hath given [H5414] to David [H1732] the king [H4428] a wise [H2450] son [H1121] , endued [H3045] with prudence [H7922] and understanding [H998] , that might build [H1129] an house [H1004] for the LORD [H3068] , and an house [H1004] for his kingdom [H4438] .(endued: Heb. knowing prudence and understanding)

2:13 And now I have sent [H7971] a cunning [H2450] man [H376] , endued [H3045] with understanding [H998] , of Huram [H2361] my father's [H1] ,

2:14 The son [H1121] of a woman [H802] of the daughters [H1323] of Dan [H1835] , and his father [H1] [was] a man [H376] of Tyre [H6876] , skilful [H3045] to work [H6213] in gold [H2091] , and in silver [H3701] , in brass [H5178] , in iron [H1270] , in stone [H68] , and in timber [H6086] , in purple [H713] , in blue [H8504] , and in fine linen [H948] , and in crimson [H3758] ; also to grave [H6605] any manner of graving [H6603] , and to find out [H2803] every device [H4284] which shall be put [H5414] to him, with thy cunning men [H2450] , and with the cunning men [H2450] of my lord [H113] David [H1732] thy father [H1] .

2:15 Now therefore the wheat [H2406] , and the barley [H8184] , the oil [H8081] , and the wine [H3196] , which my lord [H113] hath spoken [H559] of, let him send [H7971] unto his servants [H5650] :

2:16 And we will cut [H3772] wood [H6086] out of Lebanon [H3844] , as much as thou shalt need [H6878] : and we will bring [H935] it to thee in floats [H7513] by sea [H3220] to Joppa [H3305] ; and thou shalt carry it up [H5927] to Jerusalem [H3389] .(as much: Heb according to all thy need)(Joppa: Heb.
