Hiram (also Huram) was brought from Tyre. He was full of wisdom and understanding and skill in bronze. He came to Solomon and did all his work.
Besides using the greatest materials to build the house of the Lord, Solomon also got the best craftsman to do the work of the temple. Hiram is simply an example of these skilled craftsman. A further wrinkle in doing the best for the Lord is making sure that the right people do the right work for the glory of the Lord, whether building a church or singing a song, or teaching a class. Let’s give God our best and do our best for the Lord!
