1 Kings 5:5-6

5-6"Now here is what I want to do: Build a temple in honor of God, my God, following the promise that God gave to David my father, namely, 'Your son whom I will provide to succeed you as king, he will build a house in my honor.'

We both know that there is no one like you Sidonians for cutting timber."
