1 Kings 5:15 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

15 When Hiram, king of Tyre, heard that Solomon had been anointed king in place of his father, he sent an embassy to him; for Hiram had always been David’s friend.[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 5:15 David’s friend: the term “to be a friend,” lit., “to love,” is political, and means that David and Hiram had been allies. The purpose of Hiram’s embassy is to determine whether Solomon is willing to continue the alliance. This unspoken agenda lies behind the negotiations about materials for the Temple, as the concluding v. 26 makes clear.

David in Jerusalem. Hiram, king of Tyre, sent envoys to David along with cedar wood, and masons and carpenters to build him a house.[a] David now knew[b] that the Lord had truly established him as king over Israel, for his kingdom was greatly exalted for the sake of his people Israel.
