Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Kings 5:7

_ _ 1 Kings 5:7-12. Furnishes timber to build the Temple.

_ _ Blessed be the Lord — This language is no decisive evidence that Hiram was a worshipper of the true God, as he might use it only on the polytheistic principle of acknowledging Jehovah as the God of the Hebrews (see on 2 Chronicles 2:11).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Kings 5:1-9.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 5:7
