1 Kings 2:38-42

Context
2:38 Shimei said to the king, “My master the king’s proposal is acceptable. 1  Your servant will do as you say.” 2  So Shimei lived in Jerusalem for a long time. 3 

2:39 Three years later two of Shimei’s servants ran away to King Achish son of Maacah of Gath. Shimei was told, “Look, your servants are in Gath.” 2:40 So Shimei got up, saddled his donkey, and went to Achish at Gath to find his servants; Shimei went and brought back his servants from Gath. 2:41 When Solomon was told that Shimei had gone from Jerusalem to Gath and had then returned, 2:42 the king summoned 4  Shimei and said to him, “You will recall 5  that I made you take an oath by the Lord, and I solemnly warned you, ‘If you ever leave and go anywhere, 6  know for sure that you will certainly die.’ You said to me, ‘The proposal is acceptable; I agree to it.’ 7
