SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:7 Y cuando Hiram oyó las palabras de Salomón, se alegró en gran manera, y dijo: Bendito sea hoy el SEÑOR, que dio hijo sabio a David sobre este pueblo tan grande.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Kings 5:7 Verse 7. Blessed be the Lord this day] From this, and indeed from every part of Hiram's conduct, it is evident that he was a worshipper of the true God; unless, as was the case with many of the heathens, he supposed that every country had its own god, and every god his own country, and he thanked the God of Israel that he had given so wise a prince to govern those whom he considered his friends and allies: but the first opinion seems to be the most correct.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 7. And it came to pass, when Hiram heard the words of Solomon , etc.] The letter read he sent him: that he rejoiced greatly ; that the friendship which had subsisted between him and David was like to be continued between him and his successor, but chiefly for what follows: saying, blessed [be] the Lord this day ; or Jehovah, by which he seems to have some knowledge of the true God, the God of Israel, and might worship him, though along with him other deities, as some Heathen princes did: which hath given unto David a wise son over this great people ; which he perceived by the letter he sent him, and by his solicitous concern to build an house for the worship and honour of God, and by various other things which his ambassadors reported to him they had seen and heard in Solomon’s court.
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.
