But Zadok the priest, Benaiah son of Jehoiada, Nathan the prophet, Shimei, Rei, and David’s elite warriors 1 did not ally themselves 2 with Adonijah.
Nathan said, “My master, O king, did you announce, ‘Adonijah will be king after me; he will sit on my throne’?
As he was still speaking, Jonathan 1 son of Abiathar the priest arrived. Adonijah said, “Come in, for 2 an important man like you must be bringing good news.” 3
Haggith’s son Adonijah visited Bathsheba, Solomon’s mother. She asked, “Do you come in peace?” He answered, “Yes.” 1
King Solomon then swore an oath by the Lord, “May God judge me severely, 1 if Adonijah does not pay for this request with his life! 2
Adonijah sacrificed sheep, cattle, and fattened steers at the Stone of Zoheleth near En Rogel. He invited all his brothers, the king’s sons, 1 as well as all the men of Judah, the king’s servants.
Nathan said to Bathsheba, Solomon’s mother, “Has it been reported to you 1 that Haggith’s son Adonijah has become king behind our master David’s back? 2
Visit 1 King David and say to him, ‘My master, O king, did you not solemnly promise 2 your servant, “Surely your son Solomon will be king after me; he will sit on my throne”? So why has Adonijah become king?’
For today he has gone down and sacrificed many cattle, steers, and sheep and has invited all the king’s sons, the army commanders, and Abiathar the priest. At this moment 1 they are having a feast 2 in his presence, and they have declared, ‘Long live King Adonijah!’ 3
Now Adonijah and all his guests heard the commotion just as they had finished eating. 1 When Joab heard the sound of the trumpet, he asked, “Why is there such a noisy commotion in the city?” 2
Solomon was told, “Look, Adonijah fears you; 1 see, he has taken hold of the horns of the altar, saying, ‘May King Solomon solemnly promise 2 me today that he will not kill his servant with the sword.’”
So Bathsheba visited King Solomon to speak to him on Adonijah’s behalf. The king got up to greet 1 her, bowed to her, and then sat on his throne. He ordered a throne to be brought for the king’s mother, 2 and she sat at his right hand.
Now, as certainly as the Lord lives (he who made me secure, allowed me to sit on my father David’s throne, and established a dynasty 1 for me as he promised), Adonijah will be executed today!”
