  3. 3. 3 1 Kings 9:10 And it came to pass at the end of twenty years, when Solomon had built the two houses, the house of the LORD, and the king's house, that then king Solomon gave Hiram twenty cities in the land of Galilee. 11 (Now Hiram the king of Tyre had furnished Solomon with cedar trees and fir trees, and with gold, according to all his desire,)
  4. 4. 4 Near the mid-point of Solomon’s reign (after 20 of his 40 years), after he had finished building the temple (7 years, 6:38) and his palace complex (13 years, 7:1), Solomon gave 20 villages in Galilee to his old friend King Hiram... of Tyre. Hiram had previously given Solomon cedar and pine (cf. 5:10) and much gold as well. The amount of gold was 120 talents (9:14; ca. 9,000 pounds).

  5. 5. 5 12 And Hiram came out from Tyre to see the cities which Solomon had given him; and they pleased him not. 13 And he said, What cities are these which thou hast given me, my brother? And he called them the land of Cabul unto this day. 14 And Hiram sent to the king sixscore talents of gold. But when Hiram visited the 20 towns... he was disappointed; they were apparently located near unproductive land. Hiram called them the Land of Cabul (“Cabul” sounds like the Heb. for “good-for- nothing”). The Bible Knowledge Commentary: An Exposition of the Scriptures by Dallas Seminary Faculty.
  6. 6. 6 15 And this is the reason of the levy which king Solomon raised; for to build the house of the LORD, and his own house, and Millo, and the wall of Jerusalem, and Hazor, and Megiddo, and Gezer. 16 For Pharaoh king of Egypt had gone up, and taken Gezer, and burnt it with fire, and slain the Canaanites that dwelt in the city, and given it for a present unto his daughter, Solomon's wife.
  7. 7. 7 17 And Solomon built Gezer, and Bethhoron the nether (lower Bethhoron), 18 And Baalath, and Tadmor in the wilderness, in the land, 19 And all the cities of store that Solomon had, and cities for his chariots, and cities for his horsemen, and that which Solomon desired to build in Jerusalem, and in Lebanon, and in all the land of his dominion. Cities of store were where he kept surplus food. He had other cities where he kept chariots, horses, and horsemen for defense of Israel. And still more just to occupy the land.
  8. 8. 8 Solomon became known as one of the great builders in Israel's history. He built Hazor, Megiddo, and Gezer as fortress cities at key points during his reign. He also rebuilt the cities of Lower Beth Horon, Baalath, and Tadmor.
  9. 9. 9 20 And all the people that were left of the Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites, which were not of the children of Israel, 21 Their children that were left after them in the land, whom the children of Israel also were not able utterly to destroy, upon those did Solomon levy a tribute of bond-service unto this day. These were the slaves which did the hard work of building all that Solomon built.
  10. 10. 10 22 But of the children of Israel did Solomon make no bondmen: but they were men of war, and his servants, and his princes, and his captains, and rulers of his chariots, and his horsemen. The Israelites that he drafted were not slaves, but had better jobs and were paid for their time.
  11. 11. 11 23 These were the chief of the officers that were over Solomon's work, five hundred and fifty, which bare rule over the people that wrought in the work. Supervisors of the slaves
  12. 12. 12 24 But Pharaoh's daughter came up out of the city of David unto her house which Solomon had built for her: then did he build Millo. She moved into her own palace when it was finished at the end of twenty years. His number one wife had her own palace.
  13. 13. 13 25 And three times in a year did Solomon offer burnt offerings and peace offerings upon the altar which he built unto the LORD, and he burnt incense upon the altar that was before the LORD. So he finished the house. The three annual occasions were perhaps the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Feast of Harvest (also called Weeks and Pentecost), and the Feast of Tabernacles (also called Ingathering) since these were the major feasts of Israel.

  14. 14. 14 26 And King Solomon made a navy of ships in Eziongeber, which is beside Eloth, on the shore of the Red sea, in the land of Edom. 27 And Hiram sent in the navy his servants, shipmen that had knowledge of the sea, with the servants of Solomon. 28 And they came to Ophir, and fetched from thence gold, four hundred and twenty talents, and brought it to king Solomon. So, Solomon and King Hiram were still friends. Hiram didn’t like the cities Solomon gave him, but he liked to benefit from trade.
  15. 15. 15 Solomon did well in building the house of the Lord first of all his efforts. God’s work needs to be first in our lives: To do what we know God wants us to do. The Bible teaches us what God wants us to do. As we do what we know, God will further reveal things to us.
  16. 16. 16 1 Thessalonians 5:15 (KJV) See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. No trying to get even with anyone. Do only good things: In the church, To all men. First Galatians 6:10 (KJV) As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
  17. 17. 17 1 Thessalonians 5:16 (KJV) Rejoice evermore. We can choose to be happy: Whatever our circumstances, All the time, in every place. Rejoice because the Creator is our Father. Rejoice because we are saved from sin and hell. Rejoice because Jesus loves us.
  18. 18. 18 1 Thessalonians 5:17 (KJV) Pray without ceasing. Pray = worship and supplicate--to humbly ask God for help for yourself or others. Begin with worship, praising God for Who He is and the things He has done. He is our Creator, our Savior and Lord, God is Healer of all our diseases, Provider of all our needs, Protector, Comforter, a very present Help in time of need. Then ask.
  19. 19. 19 1 Thessalonians 5 18 In everything give thanks: for this is the Will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 19 Quench not the Spirit. 20 Despise not prophesyings. 21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. 22 Abstain from all appearance of evil. This is not a complete list of all that God would have us to do. But it’s a good place to start. Every Word of God
