1 Kings 5:4-6 The Voice (VOICE)
4 But the Eternal One my God now grants me rest everywhere. We are not plagued by enemies or troubles. 5 Therefore, I am going to construct a temple for the name of the Eternal my God. It will be just as He told David, my father: “Your son, whom I will put upon your throne after you are gone, will construct a temple honoring Me.”[a] 6 So tell your people to start cutting down Lebanon’s cedars for my project. My servants will work alongside your servants, and I will pay you whatever you ask for your servants’ work. It is no secret that the best timber cutters around are the Sidonians who are at your command.
