You know that because of the wars waged against my father,David,from all sides,he could not build a temple for
the Name of the Lord his God until the Lord put his enemies under his feet. But now the Lord my God has given me rest
on every side and their is no adversary or disaster. I intend therefore to build a temple for the name of the Lord my God,
as the Lord told my father David when he said..'Your son[Christ] whom I will put on the throne in your place will build the
temple for my name. So give orders that cedars of Lebanan be cut for me[trees of righteousness..the plantings of the Lord]
So Hiram sent word to Solomon....'I have received the message you sent me and will do all you want in providing the cedar
and pine logs. My men will haul them down from Lebanon to the sea,and I will float them in rafts by sea to the place you
specify. [ Psam 144;6,-12] Send forth lightening and scatter the enemies,shoot your arrows and rout them[lightening in the
heavens that flash from east to west] Reach down your hand from on high,deliver me and rescue me from the mighty waters
from the hands of foreigners whose mouths are full of lies,whose right hands are deceitful. I will sing a new song to you,O'God
v 12 then our sons in their youth will be like well nurtured plants,our daughters will be like pillars . Our barns will be filled
with every kind of provision[gather the wheat into the barn] Our sheep will increase by thousands,by ten thousands in our
fields,our oxen will draw heavy loads. There will be no breaching of walls,no going into captivity,no cry of distress in our streets.
Psalms 18;16 He reached down from on high and took hold of me;he drew me out of deep waters.
