    For again

    Which of these is correct:

    1-For building the wall, we had been given bricks and mortar.
    2-To build the wall, we had been given bricks and mortar,
    3-In order to build the wall, we had been given bricks and mortar.

    4-We had been given bricks and mortar with which to build the wall,

    (I know this is getting a bit repetitive, but I have managed to get myself confused again.)

    2 & 4 sound best. 3 is right. 1, though I wouldn't say it was completely wrong, is a bit clumsy.
