Or, secondly, hespeaks there of what Solomon offered: for it runs thus, I will give;and here of what Hiram accepted. Or, thirdly, the barley, and wine, andtwenty thousand baths of common oil, mentioned #2Chron 2:10|, mustbe added to the twenty thousand measures of wheat, and the twentymeasures of pure oil here expressed, and the whole sum is to be made upfrom both places; that book of Chronicles being written to supply andcompleat the histories of the books of Samuel, and of the Kings.Gave Hiram - Either, first, for sustenance to the workmen, during theyears wherein they were employed in the cutting down and hewing of timber.Or, for the yearly support of the king's house, during the said time.Thus by the wise disposal of providence, one country has need of another,and is benefited by another, that there may be a mutual correspondence anddependence, to the glory of God our common Parent.
