SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:1 Â¶ Hiram rey de Tiro envió también sus siervos a Salomón, luego que oyó que lo habían ungido por rey en lugar de su padre; porque Hiram había siempre amado a David.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 5:1 Verse 1. Hiram king of Tyre] It must have been at the beginning of Solomon's reign that these ambassadors were sent; and some suppose that the Hiram mentioned here is different from him who was the friend of David; but there seems no very solid reason for this supposition. As Hiram had intimate alliance with David, and built his palace, 2 Sam. v. 11, he wished to maintain the same good understanding with his son, of whose wisdom he had no doubt heard the most advantageous accounts; and he loved the son because he always loved the father, for Hiram was ever a lover of David.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 1. And Hiram king of Tyre sent servants unto Solomon , etc.] His ambassadors, to condole him on the death of his father, and congratulate him on his accession to the throne; this king is called by the Phoenician historians Hirom, and by Eupolemus Suron, as he is Huram in ( Chronicles 2:3); and by Theophilus of Antioch Hierom the son of Abelmalus, in the twelfth year of whose reign the temple was built: for he had heard that they had anointed him, king in the room of his father ; that the Israelites had anointed him king: for Hiram was ever a lover of David ; a friend and ally of his; and we never read of the Tyrians being at war with him, or assisting any of his enemies.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-9 - Here is Solomon's design to build a temple. There is no adversary, n Satan, so the word is; no instrument of Satan to oppose it, or to divert from it. Satan does all he can, to hinder temple work. When there is no evil abroad, then let us be ready and active in that whic is good, and get forward. Let God's promises quicken our endeavours And all outward skill and advantages should be made serviceable to the interests of Christ's kingdom. It Tyre supplies Israel with craftsmen Israel will supply Tyre with corn, Eze 27:17. Thus, by the wis disposal of Providence, one country has need of another, and is benefitted by another, that there may be dependence on one another, to the glory of God.
