1 Kings 5:4-6 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

But now the Lord my God has given me peace along all the borders of my country. I have no enemies, and my people are in no danger.

“The Lord made a promise to my father David. He said, ‘I will make your son king after you, and he will build a temple to honor me.’ Now, I plan to build that temple to honor the Lord my God. And so I ask you to help me. Send your men to Lebanon to cut down cedar trees for me. My servants will work with yours. I will pay you any price that you decide as your servants’ wages, but I need your help. Our carpenters[a] are not as good as the carpenters of Sidon.”


  1. 1 Kings 5:6 carpenters People who work with wood. In ancient times, this also meant that they cut the trees.
