1 Kings 1:1-53

Now king
<04428>
David
<01732>
was old
<02204> (8804)
[and] stricken
<0935> (8804)
in years
<03117>_;
and they covered
<03680> (8762)
him with clothes
<0899>_,
but he gat no heat
<03179> (8799)_.
{stricken...: Heb. entered into days}
Wherefore his servants
<05650>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Let there be sought
<01245> (8762)
for my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>
a young
<05291>
virgin
<01330>_:
and let her stand
<05975> (8804)
before
<06440>
the king
<04428>_,
and let her cherish
<05532> (8802)
him, and let her lie
<07901> (8804)
in thy bosom
<02436>_,
that my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>
may get heat
<02552> (8804)_.
{Let there...: Heb. Let them seek} {a young...: Heb. a damsel, a virgin} {cherish...: Heb. be a cherisher unto him}
So they sought
<01245> (8762)
for a fair
<03303>
damsel
<05291>
throughout all the coasts
<01366>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and found
<04672> (8799)
Abishag
<049>
a Shunammite
<07767>_,
and brought
<0935> (8686)
her to the king
<04428>_.
And the damsel
<05291>
[was] very
<03966>
fair
<03303>_,
and cherished
<05532> (8802)
the king
<04428>_,
and ministered
<08334> (8762)
to him: but the king
<04428>
knew
<03045> (8804)
her not.
Then Adonijah
<0138>
the son
<01121>
of Haggith
<02294>
exalted
<04984> (8693)
himself, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
I will be king
<04427> (8799)_:
and he prepared
<06213> (8799)
him chariots
<07393>
and horsemen
<06571>_,
and fifty
<02572>
men
<0376>
to run
<07323> (8801)
before
<06440>
him. {be king: Heb. reign}
And his father
<01>
had not displeased
<06087> (8804)
him at any time
<03117>
in saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Why hast thou done so
<06213> (8804)_?
and he also [was a] very
<03966>
goodly
<02896> <08389>
[man]; and [his mother] bare
<03205> (8804)
him after
<0310>
Absalom
<053>_.
{at any...: Heb. from his days}
And he conferred
<01697>
with Joab
<03097>
the son
<01121>
of Zeruiah
<06870>_,
and with Abiathar
<054>
the priest
<03548>_:
and they following
<0310>
Adonijah
<0138>
helped
<05826> (8799)
[him]. {he...: Heb. his words were with} {following...: Heb. helped after Adonijah}
But Zadok
<06659>
the priest
<03548>_,
and Benaiah
<01141>
the son
<01121>
of Jehoiada
<03077>_,
and Nathan
<05416>
the prophet
<05030>_,
and Shimei
<08096>_,
and Rei
<07472>_,
and the mighty men
<01368>
which [belonged] to David
<01732>_,
were not with Adonijah
<0138>_.
And Adonijah
<0138>
slew
<02076> (8799)
sheep
<06629>
and oxen
<01241>
and fat cattle
<04806>
by the stone
<068>
of Zoheleth
<02120>_,
which [is] by
<0681>
Enrogel
<05883>_,
and called
<07121> (8799)
all his brethren
<0251>
the king's
<04428>
sons
<01121>_,
and all the men
<0582>
of Judah
<03063>
the king's
<04428>
servants
<05650>_:
{Enrogel: or, the well Rogel}
But Nathan
<05416>
the prophet
<05030>_,
and Benaiah
<01141>_,
and the mighty men
<01368>_,
and Solomon
<08010>
his brother
<0251>_,
he called
<07121> (8804)
not.
Wherefore Nathan
<05416>
spake
<0559> (8799)
unto Bathsheba
<01339>
the mother
<0517>
of Solomon
<08010>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Hast thou not heard
<08085> (8804)
that Adonijah
<0138>
the son
<01121>
of Haggith
<02294>
doth reign
<04427> (8804)_,
and David
<01732>
our lord
<0113>
knoweth
<03045> (8804)
[it] not?
Now therefore come
<03212> (8798)_,
let me, I pray thee, give thee counsel
<03289> (8799) <06098>_,
that thou mayest save
<04422> (8761)
thine own life
<05315>_,
and the life
<05315>
of thy son
<01121>
Solomon
<08010>_.
Go
<03212> (8798)
and get thee in
<0935> (8798)
unto king
<04428>
David
<01732>_,
and say
<0559> (8804)
unto him, Didst not thou, my lord
<0113>_,
O king
<04428>_,
swear
<07650> (8738)
unto thine handmaid
<0519>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Assuredly
<03588>
Solomon
<08010>
thy son
<01121>
shall reign
<04427> (8799)
after
<0310>
me, and he shall sit
<03427> (8799)
upon my throne
<03678>_?
why then doth Adonijah
<0138>
reign
<04427> (8804)_?
Behold, while thou yet talkest
<01696> (8764)
there with the king
<04428>_,
I also will come in
<0935> (8799)
after
<0310>
thee, and confirm
<04390> (8765)
thy words
<01697>_.
{confirm: Heb. fill up}
And Bathsheba
<01339>
went in
<0935> (8799)
unto the king
<04428>
into the chamber
<02315>_:
and the king
<04428>
was very
<03966>
old
<02204> (8804)_;
and Abishag
<049>
the Shunammite
<07767>
ministered
<08334> (8764)
unto the king
<04428>_.
And Bathsheba
<01339>
bowed
<06915> (8799)_,
and did obeisance
<07812> (8691)
unto the king
<04428>_.
And the king
<04428>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
What wouldest thou? {What...: Heb. What to thee?}
And she said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, My lord
<0113>_,
thou swarest
<07650> (8738)
by the LORD
<03068>
thy God
<0430>
unto thine handmaid
<0519>_,
[saying], Assuredly Solomon
<08010>
thy son
<01121>
shall reign
<04427> (8799)
after
<0310>
me, and he shall sit
<03427> (8799)
upon my throne
<03678>_.
And now, behold, Adonijah
<0138>
reigneth
<04427> (8804)_;
and now, my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>_,
thou knowest
<03045> (8804)
[it] not:
And he hath slain
<02076> (8799)
oxen
<07794>
and fat cattle
<04806>
and sheep
<06629>
in abundance
<07230>_,
and hath called
<07121> (8799)
all the sons
<01121>
of the king
<04428>_,
and Abiathar
<054>
the priest
<03548>_,
and Joab
<03097>
the captain
<08269>
of the host
<06635>_:
but Solomon
<08010>
thy servant
<05650>
hath he not called
<07121> (8804)_.
And thou, my lord
<0113>_,
O king
<04428>_,
the eyes
<05869>
of all Israel
<03478>
[are] upon thee, that thou shouldest tell
<05046> (8687)
them who shall sit
<03427> (8799)
on the throne
<03678>
of my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>
after
<0310>
him.
Otherwise it shall come to pass, when my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>
shall sleep
<07901> (8800)
with his fathers
<01>_,
that I and my son
<01121>
Solomon
<08010>
shall be counted offenders
<02400>_.
{offenders: Heb. sinners}
And, lo, while she yet talked
<01696> (8764)
with the king
<04428>_,
Nathan
<05416>
the prophet
<05030>
also came in
<0935> (8804)_.
And they told
<05046> (8686)
the king
<04428>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Behold Nathan
<05416>
the prophet
<05030>_.
And when he was come in
<0935> (8799)
before
<06440>
the king
<04428>_,
he bowed
<07812> (8691)
himself before the king
<04428>
with his face
<0639>
to the ground
<0776>_.
And Nathan
<05416>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
My lord
<0113>_,
O king
<04428>_,
hast thou said
<0559> (8804)_,
Adonijah
<0138>
shall reign
<04427> (8799)
after
<0310>
me, and he shall sit
<03427> (8799)
upon my throne
<03678>_?
For he is gone down
<03381> (8804)
this day
<03117>_,
and hath slain
<02076> (8799)
oxen
<07794>
and fat cattle
<04806>
and sheep
<06629>
in abundance
<07230>_,
and hath called
<07121> (8799)
all the king's
<04428>
sons
<01121>_,
and the captains
<08269>
of the host
<06635>_,
and Abiathar
<054>
the priest
<03548>_;
and, behold, they eat
<0398> (8802)
and drink
<08354> (8802)
before
<06440>
him, and say
<0559> (8799)_,
God save
<02421> (8799)
king
<04428>
Adonijah
<0138>_.
{God...: Heb. Let king Adonijah live}
But me, [even] me thy servant
<05650>_,
and Zadok
<06659>
the priest
<03548>_,
and Benaiah
<01141>
the son
<01121>
of Jehoiada
<03077>_,
and thy servant
<05650>
Solomon
<08010>_,
hath he not called
<07121> (8804)_.
Is this thing
<01697>
done
<01961> (8738)
by my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>_,
and thou hast not shewed
<03045> (8689)
[it] unto thy servant
<05650>_,
who should sit
<03427> (8799)
on the throne
<03678>
of my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>
after
<0310>
him?
Then king
<04428>
David
<01732>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Call
<07121> (8798)
me Bathsheba
<01339>_.
And she came
<0935> (8799)
into the king's
<04428>
presence
<06440>_,
and stood
<05975> (8799)
before
<06440>
the king
<04428>_.
{into...: Heb. before the king}
And the king
<04428>
sware
<07650> (8735)_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
[As] the LORD
<03068>
liveth
<02416>_,
that hath redeemed
<06299> (8804)
my soul
<05315>
out of all distress
<06869>_,
Even as I sware
<07650> (8738)
unto thee by the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Assuredly Solomon
<08010>
thy son
<01121>
shall reign
<04427> (8799)
after
<0310>
me, and he shall sit
<03427> (8799)
upon my throne
<03678>
in my stead; even so will I certainly do
<06213> (8799)
this day
<03117>_.
Then Bathsheba
<01339>
bowed
<06915> (8799)
with [her] face
<0639>
to the earth
<0776>_,
and did reverence
<07812> (8691)
to the king
<04428>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Let my lord
<0113>
king
<04428>
David
<01732>
live
<02421> (8799)
for ever
<05769>_.
And king
<04428>
David
<01732>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Call
<07121> (8798)
me Zadok
<06659>
the priest
<03548>_,
and Nathan
<05416>
the prophet
<05030>_,
and Benaiah
<01141>
the son
<01121>
of Jehoiada
<03077>_.
And they came
<0935> (8799)
before
<06440>
the king
<04428>_.
The king
<04428>
also said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Take
<03947> (8798)
with you the servants
<05650>
of your lord
<0113>_,
and cause Solomon
<08010>
my son
<01121>
to ride
<07392> (8689)
upon mine own mule
<06506>_,
and bring him down
<03381> (8689)
to Gihon
<01521>_:
{mine...: Heb. which belongeth to me}
And let Zadok
<06659>
the priest
<03548>
and Nathan
<05416>
the prophet
<05030>
anoint
<04886> (8804)
him there king
<04428>
over Israel
<03478>_:
and blow
<08628> (8804)
ye with the trumpet
<07782>_,
and say
<0559> (8804)_,
God save
<02421> (8799)
king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>_.
Then ye shall come up
<05927> (8804)
after
<0310>
him, that he may come
<0935> (8804)
and sit
<03427> (8804)
upon my throne
<03678>_;
for he shall be king
<04427> (8799)
in my stead: and I have appointed
<06680> (8765)
him to be ruler
<05057>
over Israel
<03478>
and over Judah
<03063>_.
And Benaiah
<01141>
the son
<01121>
of Jehoiada
<03077>
answered
<06030> (8799)
the king
<04428>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Amen
<0543>_:
the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>
say
<0559> (8799)
so [too].
As the LORD
<03068>
hath been with my lord
<0113>
the king
<04428>_,
even so be he with Solomon
<08010>_,
and make
<01431> (0)
his throne
<03678>
greater
<01431> (8762)
than the throne
<03678>
of my lord
<0113>
king
<04428>
David
<01732>_.
So Zadok
<06659>
the priest
<03548>_,
and Nathan
<05416>
the prophet
<05030>_,
and Benaiah
<01141>
the son
<01121>
of Jehoiada
<03077>_,
and the Cherethites
<03774>_,
and the Pelethites
<06432>_,
went down
<03381> (8799)_,
and caused Solomon
<08010>
to ride
<07392> (8686)
upon king
<04428>
David's
<01732>
mule
<06506>_,
and brought
<03212> (8686)
him to Gihon
<01521>_.
And Zadok
<06659>
the priest
<03548>
took
<03947> (8799)
an horn
<07161>
of oil
<08081>
out of the tabernacle
<0168>_,
and anointed
<04886> (8799)
Solomon
<08010>_.
And they blew
<08628> (8799)
the trumpet
<07782>_;
and all the people
<05971>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
God save
<02421> (8799)
king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>_.
And all the people
<05971>
came up
<05927> (8799)
after
<0310>
him, and the people
<05971>
piped
<02490> (8764)
with pipes
<02485>_,
and rejoiced
<08056>
with great
<01419>
joy
<08057>_,
so that the earth
<0776>
rent
<01234> (8735)
with the sound
<06963>
of them. {pipes: or, flutes}
And Adonijah
<0138>
and all the guests
<07121> (8803)
that [were] with him heard
<08085> (8799)
[it] as they had made an end
<03615> (8765)
of eating
<0398> (8800)_.
And when Joab
<03097>
heard
<08085> (8799)
the sound
<06963>
of the trumpet
<07782>_,
he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Wherefore [is this] noise
<06963>
of the city
<07151>
being in an uproar
<01993> (8802)_?
And while he yet spake
<01696> (8764)_,
behold, Jonathan
<03129>
the son
<01121>
of Abiathar
<054>
the priest
<03548>
came
<0935> (8804)_:
and Adonijah
<0138>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Come in
<0935> (8798)_;
for thou [art] a valiant
<02428>
man
<0376> (8676) <0381>_,
and bringest
<01319> (0)
good
<02896>
tidings
<01319> (8762)_.
And Jonathan
<03129>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)
to Adonijah
<0138>_,
Verily
<061>
our lord
<0113>
king
<04428>
David
<01732>
hath made Solomon
<08010>
king
<04427> (8689)_.
And the king
<04428>
hath sent
<07971> (8799)
with him Zadok
<06659>
the priest
<03548>_,
and Nathan
<05416>
the prophet
<05030>_,
and Benaiah
<01141>
the son
<01121>
of Jehoiada
<03077>_,
and the Cherethites
<03774>_,
and the Pelethites
<06432>_,
and they have caused him to ride
<07392> (8686)
upon the king's
<04428>
mule
<06506>_:
And Zadok
<06659>
the priest
<03548>
and Nathan
<05416>
the prophet
<05030>
have anointed
<04886> (8799)
him king
<04428>
in Gihon
<01521>_:
and they are come up
<05927> (8799)
from thence rejoicing
<08056>_,
so that the city
<07151>
rang again
<01949> (8735)_.
This [is] the noise
<06963>
that ye have heard
<08085> (8804)_.
And also Solomon
<08010>
sitteth
<03427> (8804)
on the throne
<03678>
of the kingdom
<04410>_.
And moreover the king's
<04428>
servants
<05650>
came
<0935> (8804)
to bless
<01288> (8763)
our lord
<0113>
king
<04428>
David
<01732>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
God
<0430>
make the name
<08034>
of Solomon
<08010>
better
<03190> (8686)
than thy name
<08034>_,
and make
<01431> (0)
his throne
<03678>
greater
<01431> (8762)
than thy throne
<03678>_.
And the king
<04428>
bowed
<07812> (8691)
himself upon the bed
<04904>_.
And also thus said
<0559> (8804)
the king
<04428>_,
Blessed
<01288> (8803)
[be] the LORD
<03068>
God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
which hath given
<05414> (8804)
[one] to sit
<03427> (8802)
on my throne
<03678>
this day
<03117>_,
mine eyes
<05869>
even seeing
<07200> (8802)
[it].
And all the guests
<07121> (8803)
that [were] with Adonijah
<0138>
were afraid
<02729> (8799)_,
and rose up
<06965> (8799)_,
and went
<03212> (8799)
every man
<0376>
his way
<01870>_.
And Adonijah
<0138>
feared
<03372> (8804)
because
<06440>
of Solomon
<08010>_,
and arose
<06965> (8799)_,
and went
<03212> (8799)_,
and caught hold
<02388> (8686)
on the horns
<07161>
of the altar
<04196>_.
And it was told
<05046> (8714)
Solomon
<08010>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Behold, Adonijah
<0138>
feareth
<03372> (8804)
king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>_:
for, lo, he hath caught hold
<0270> (8804)
on the horns
<07161>
of the altar
<04196>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Let king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>
swear
<07650> (8735)
unto me to day
<03117>
that he will not slay
<04191> (8686)
his servant
<05650>
with the sword
<02719>_.
And Solomon
<08010>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
If he will shew himself a worthy
<02428>
man
<01121>_,
there shall not an hair
<08185>
of him fall
<05307> (8799)
to the earth
<0776>_:
but if wickedness
<07451>
shall be found
<04672> (8735)
in him, he shall die
<04191> (8804)_.
So king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>
sent
<07971> (8799)_,
and they brought him down
<03381> (8686)
from the altar
<04196>_.
And he came
<0935> (8799)
and bowed
<07812> (8691)
himself to king
<04428>
Solomon
<08010>_:
and Solomon
<08010>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Go
<03212> (8798)
to thine house
<01004>_.
