1 Kings 1:11


1:11 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 

1 Kings 1:13

1:13 Visit 3  King David and say to him, ‘My master, O king, did you not solemnly promise 4  your servant, “Surely your son Solomon will be king after me; he will sit on my throne”? So why has Adonijah become king?’

1 Kings 1:18

1:18 But now, look, Adonijah has become king! But you, 5  my master the king, are not even aware of it! 6 

1 tn Heb “Have you not heard?”

2 tn Heb “and our master David does not know.”

3 tn Heb “come, go to.” The imperative of הָלַךְ (halakh) is here used as an introductory interjection. See BDB 234 s.v. חָלַךְ.

4 tn Or “swear an oath to.”

5 tc Instead of עַתָּה (’attah, “now”) many Hebrew mss, along with the Old Greek, Syriac Peshitta, and Latin Vulgate, have the similar sounding independent pronoun אַתָּה (’attah, “you”). This reading is followed in the present translation.

6 tn Heb “you do not know [about it].”
