Solomon requested from Hiram king of Tyre materials to build the Temple of the Lord. King Hiram provided the cedar and juniper logs from Lebanon and Solomon provided food fo Hiram's royal household. Solomon conscripted many thousands of laborers to cut timber and quarry stone to build the temple. "In the four hundred and eightieth year after the Israelites came out of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon’s reign over Israel, in the month of Ziv, the second month, he began to build the temple of the LORD."(1 Ki 6:1) "In the eleventh year in the month of Bul, the eighth month, the temple was finished in all its details according to its specifications. He had spent seven years building it."(1Ki 6:38) "It took Solomon thirteen years, however, to complete the construction of his palace."(1Ki 7:1) "Then King Solomon summoned into his presence at Jerusalem the elders of Israel, all the heads of the tribes and the chiefs of the Israelite families, to bring up the ark of the LORD’s covenant from Zion, the City of David."(1Ki 8:1)
