1 Kings 9:10-14 World English Bible (WEB)

10 At the end of twenty years, in which Solomon had built the two houses, Yahweh’s house and the king’s house 11 (now Hiram the king of Tyre had furnished Solomon with cedar trees and cypress trees, and with gold, according to all his desire), King Solomon gave Hiram twenty cities in the land of Galilee. 12 Hiram came out of Tyre to see the cities which Solomon had given him; and they didn’t please him. 13 He said, “What cities are these which you have given me, my brother?” He called them the land of Cabul[a] to this day. 14 Hiram sent to the king one hundred twenty talents[b] of gold.

Cities Given to Hiram

10 It came about at the end of twenty years in which Solomon had built the two houses, the house of the Lord and the king’s house 11 (Hiram king of Tyre had supplied Solomon with cedar and cypress timber and gold according to all his desire), then King Solomon gave Hiram twenty cities in the land of Galilee. 12 So Hiram came out from Tyre to see the cities which Solomon had given him, and they [a]did not please him. 13 He said, “What are these cities which you have given me, my brother?” So [b]they were called the land of [c]Cabul to this day. 14 And Hiram sent to the king 120 talents of gold.
