John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Chronicles 2:12

Made heaven and earth — It seems Huram was not only a friend to the Jewish nation, but a proselyte to their religion, and that he worshipped Jehovah, the God of Israel, (who was now known by that name to the neighbour — nations) as the God that made heaven and earth, and the fountain of power as well as of being.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

2 Chronicles 2:12

Huram said moreover, Blessed [be] the LORD God of Israel, that made heaven and earth, who hath given to David the king a (e) wise son, endued with prudence and understanding, that might build an house for the LORD, and an house for his kingdom.

(e) The very heavens confessed that it was a singular gift of God when he gave to any nation a king that was wise and of understanding, though it appears that this Hiram had the true knowledge of God.
