New Defender's Study Bible Notes
7:13 Hiram out of Tyre. This skilled artisan had perhaps been named after the Phoenician king (I Kings 5:1). His mother had originally been from the tribe of Dan (II Chronicles 2:14) whose first husband was of the tribe of Naphtali. When she became a widow she then married a Phoenician from Tyre, and Hiram was their son. He is called Huram in the paralleled account in II Chronicles 2:13.
