Royal Palace (David)Royal Palace (David) - And so in Jerusalem, David built for himself a palace from which he ruled Israel.  He was friends with the Phoenician king, Hiram, who supplied David with the materials.


"Then Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David with cedar trees and carpenters and stonemasons; and they built a house for David.  And David realized that the Lord had established him as king over Israel, and that He had exalted his kingdom for the sake of His people." (II Samuel 5:11-12, NASB)
