 Hiram
    high-born. (1.) Generally "Huram," one of the sons of Bela (1
    Chr. 8:5).
      (2.) Also "Huram" and "Horam," king of Tyre. He entered into
    an alliance with David, and assisted him in building his palace
    by sending him able workmen, and also cedar-trees and fir-trees
    from Lebanon (2 Sam. 5:11; 1 Chr. 14:1). After the death of
    David he entered into a similar alliance with Solomon, and
    assisted him greatly in building the temple (1 Kings 5:1; 9:11;
    2 Chr. 2:3). He also took part in Solomon's traffic to the
    Eastern Seas (1 Kings 9:27; 10:11; 2 Chr. 8:18; 9:10).
      (3.) The "master workman" whom Hiram sent to Solomon. He was
    the son of a widow of Dan, and of a Tyrian father. In 2 Chr.
    2:13 "Huram my father" should be Huram Abi, the word "Abi"
    (rendered here "my father") being regarded as a proper name, or
    it may perhaps be a title of distinction given to Huram, and
    equivalent to "master." (Comp. 1 Kings 7:14; 2 Chr. 4:16.) He
    cast the magnificent brazen works for Solomon's temple in
    clay-beds in the valley of Jordan, between Succoth and Zarthan.
