(noble). (1) King of Tyre who furnished men and material to David and Solomon (2 Sam. 5:11; 1 Kings 5; 1 Chron. 14:1). (2) Hiram’s chief architect (1 Kings 7:13,40).

Concise Bible Dictionary:

1. King of Tyre, who loved David and was a friend of Solomon. By his servants he supplied both timber and stone for the temple and the palaces of Solomon. Their navies also united to bring the produce of other lands. Solomon gave to Hiram twenty cities in the land of Galilee, but Hiram was not pleased with them: he called them, in Aramaic, CABUL, “displeasing or dirty”; and the cities were eventually returned to Solomon (2 Sam. 5:11; 1 Kings 5:1-18; 1 Kings 9:11-27; 1 Kings 10:11,22; 1 Chron. 14:1). He is called HURAM (2 Chron. 2:3-12; 2 Chron. 8:2,18; 2 Chron. 9:10,21).
2. A skilful workman of Tyre, filled with wisdom and understanding, who was sent to make things for the temple. His father was a man of Tyre, and he is called “the son of a woman of the daughters of Dan” in 2 Chronicles 2:14; but in 1 Kings 7:14 it reads “a widow’s son of the tribe of Naphtali,” which may mean that her husband was a man of Naphtali (1 Kings 7:13,40,45). He is called HURAM (2 Chron. 2:13; 2 Chron. 4:11,16).
