NowH6258 the daysH3117 of DavidH1732 drew nearH7126 that he should die;H4191 and he chargedH6680 SolomonH8010 his son,H1121 saying,H559
I goH1980 the wayH1870 of allH3605 the earth:H776 be you strongH2388 therefore, and show yourself a man;H376
And keepH8104 the chargeH4931 of the LORDH3068 your God,H430 to walkH3212 in his ways,H1870 to keepH8104 his statutes,H2708 and his commandments,H4687 and his judgments,H4941 and his testimonies,H5715 as it is writtenH3789 in the lawH8451 of Moses,H4872 that you may prosperH7919 in allH3605 that you do,H6213 and whereverH3605 you turnH6437 yourself:
That the LORDH3068 may continueH6965 his wordH1697 whichH834 he spokeH1696 concerningH5921 me, saying,H559 IfH518 your childrenH1121 take heedH8104 to their way,H1870 to walkH3212 beforeH6440 me in truthH571 with allH3605 their heartH3824 and with allH3605 their soul,H5315 there shall not failH3772 you (saidH559 he) a manH376 onH5921 the throneH3678 of Israel.H3478
MoreoverH1571 you knowH3045 alsoH1571 whatH853 H834 JoabH3097 the sonH1121 of ZeruiahH6870 didH6213 to me, and whatH834 he didH6213 to the twoH8147 captainsH8269 of the hostsH6635 of Israel,H3478 to AbnerH74 the sonH1121 of Ner,H5369 and to AmasaH6021 the sonH1121 of Jether,H3500 whom he slew,H2026 and shedH7760 the bloodH1818 of warH4421 in peace,H7965 and putH5414 the bloodH1818 of warH4421 on his girdleH2290 that was about his loins,H4975 and in his shoesH5275 that were on his feet.H7272
DoH6213 therefore according to your wisdom,H2451 and let not his hoarH7872 head goH3381 downH3381 to the graveH7585 in peace.H7965
But showH6213 kindnessH2617 to the sonsH1121 of BarzillaiH1271 the Gileadite,H1569 and let them be of those that eatH398 at your table:H7979 for soH3651 they cameH935 to me when I fledH1272 becauseH6440 of AbsalomH53 your brother.H251
And, behold,H2009 you have with you ShimeiH8096 the sonH1121 of Gera,H1617 a BenjamiteH1145 of Bahurim,H980 whichH1931 cursedH7043 me with a grievousH4834 curseH7045 in the dayH3117 when I wentH3212 to Mahanaim:H4266 but he cameH3381 downH3381 to meetH7125 me at Jordan,H3383 and I sworeH7650 to him by the LORD,H3068 saying,H559 I will not put you to deathH4191 with the sword.H2719
NowH6258 therefore hold him not guiltless:H5352 for you are a wiseH2450 man,H376 and knowH3045 whatH853 H834 you ought to doH6213 to him; but his hoarH7872 head bringH3381 you downH3381 to the graveH7585 with blood.H1818
So DavidH1732 sleptH7901 with his fathers,H1 and was buriedH6912 in the cityH5892 of David.H1732
And the daysH3117 that DavidH1732 reignedH4427 overH5921 IsraelH3478 were fortyH705 years:H8141 sevenH7651 yearsH8141 reignedH4427 he in Hebron,H2275 and thirtyH7970 and threeH7969 yearsH8141 reignedH4427 he in Jerusalem.H3389
Then satH3427 SolomonH8010 on the throneH3678 of DavidH1732 his father;H1 and his kingdomH4438 was establishedH3559 greatly.H3966
And AdonijahH138 the sonH1121 of HaggithH2294 cameH935 to BathshebaH1339 the motherH517 of Solomon.H8010 And she said,H559 ComeH935 you peaceably?H7965 And he said,H559 Peaceably.H7965
He saidH559 moreover, I have somewhat to sayH1697 to you. And she said,H559 SayH1696 on.
And he said,H559 You knowH3045 that the kingdomH4410 was mine, and that allH3605 IsraelH3478 setH7760 their facesH6440 onH5921 me, that I should reign:H4427 however, the kingdomH4410 is turnedH5437 about,H5437 and is becomeH1961 my brother's:H251 for it was his from the LORD.H3068
And nowH6258 I askH7592 oneH259 petitionH7596 of you, denyH7725 me not. And she saidH559 to him, SayH1696 on.
And he said,H559 Speak,H559 I prayH4994 you, to SolomonH8010 the king,H4428 (for he will not sayH7725 you no,) that he giveH5414 me AbishagH49 the ShunammiteH7767 to wife.H802
And BathshebaH1339 said,H559 Well;H2896 I will speakH1696 for you to the king.H4428
BathshebaH1339 therefore wentH935 to kingH4428 Solomon,H8010 to speakH1696 to him for Adonijah.H138 And the kingH4428 roseH6965 up to meetH7125 her, and bowedH7812 himself to her, and satH3427 down onH5921 his throne,H3678 and caused a seatH3678 to be setH7760 for the king'sH4428 mother;H517 and she satH3427 on his rightH3225 hand.H3225
Then she said,H559 I desireH7592 oneH259 smallH6996 petitionH7596 of you; I pray you, sayH7725 me not no.H6440 And the kingH4428 saidH559 to her, AskH7592 on, my mother:H517 for I will not sayH7725 you no.
And she said,H559 Let AbishagH49 the ShunammiteH7767 be givenH5414 to AdonijahH138 your brotherH251 to wife.H802
And kingH4428 SolomonH8010 answeredH6030 and saidH559 to his mother,H517 And whyH4100 do you askH7592 AbishagH49 the ShunammiteH7767 for Adonijah?H138 askH7592 for him the kingdomH4410 also; for he is my elderH1419 brother;H251 even for him, and for AbiatharH54 the priest,H3548 and for JoabH3097 the sonH1121 of Zeruiah.H6870
Then kingH4428 SolomonH8010 sworeH7650 by the LORD,H3068 saying,H559 GodH430 doH6213 soH3541 to me, and moreH3254 also,H3541 ifH3588 AdonijahH138 have not spokenH1696 thisH2088 wordH1697 against his own life.H5315
NowH6258 therefore, as the LORDH3068 lives,H2416 whichH834 has establishedH3559 me, and setH3427 me onH5921 the throneH3678 of DavidH1732 my father,H1 and whoH834 has madeH6213 me an house,H1004 as he promised,H1696 AdonijahH138 shall be put to deathH4191 this day.H3117
And kingH4428 SolomonH8010 sentH7971 by the handH3027 of BenaiahH1141 the sonH1121 of Jehoiada;H3111 and he fellH6293 on him that he died.H4191
And to AbiatharH54 the priestH3548 saidH559 the king,H4428 GetH3212 you to Anathoth,H6068 to your own fields;H7704 for you are worthyH376 of death:H4194 but I will not at thisH2088 timeH3117 put you to death,H4191 becauseH3588 you boreH5375 the arkH727 of the LORDH136 GodH3069 beforeH6440 DavidH1732 my father,H1 and becauseH3588 you have been afflictedH6031 in allH3605 whereinH834 my fatherH1 was afflicted.H6031
So SolomonH8010 thrustH1644 out AbiatharH54 from beingH1961 priestH3548 to the LORD;H3068 that he might fulfillH4390 the wordH1697 of the LORD,H3068 whichH834 he spokeH1696 concerningH5921 the houseH1004 of EliH5941 in Shiloh.H7887
Then tidingsH8052 cameH935 to Joab:H3097 for JoabH3097 had turnedH5186 afterH310 Adonijah,H138 though he turnedH5186 not afterH310 Absalom.H53 And JoabH3097 fledH5127 to the tabernacleH168 of the LORD,H3068 and caughtH2388 holdH2388 on the hornsH7161 of the altar.H4196
And it was toldH5046 kingH4428 SolomonH8010 that JoabH3097 was fledH5127 to the tabernacleH168 of the LORD;H3068 and, behold,H2009 he is by the altar.H4196 Then SolomonH8010 sentH7971 BenaiahH1141 the sonH1121 of Jehoiada,H3111 saying,H559 Go,H3212 fallH6293 on him.
And BenaiahH1141 cameH935 to the tabernacleH168 of the LORD,H3068 and saidH559 to him, ThusH3541 saidH559 the king,H4428 ComeH3318 forth.H3318 And he said,H559 No;H3808 but I will dieH4191 here.H6311 And BenaiahH1141 broughtH7725 the kingH4428 wordH1697 again,H7725 saying,H559 ThusH3541 saidH1696 Joab,H3097 and thusH3541 he answeredH6030 me.
And the kingH4428 saidH559 to him, DoH6213 as he has said,H1696 and fallH6293 on him, and buryH6912 him; that you may takeH5493 awayH5493 the innocentH2600 blood,H1818 whichH834 JoabH3097 shed,H8210 from me, and from the houseH1004 of my father.H1
And the LORDH3068 shall returnH7725 his bloodH1818 on his own head,H7218 whoH834 fellH6293 on twoH8147 menH582 more righteousH6662 and betterH2896 than he, and slewH2026 them with the sword,H2719 my fatherH1 DavidH1732 not knowingH3045 thereof, to wit, AbnerH74 the sonH1121 of Ner,H5369 captainH8269 of the hostH6635 of Israel,H3478 and AmasaH6021 the sonH1121 of Jether,H3500 captainH8269 of the hostH6635 of Judah.H3063
Their bloodH1818 shall therefore returnH7725 on the headH7218 of Joab,H3097 and on the headH7218 of his seedH2233 for ever:H5769 but on David,H1732 and on his seed,H2233 and on his house,H1004 and on his throne,H3678 shall there be peaceH7965 for everH5769 from the LORD.H3068
So BenaiahH1141 the sonH1121 of JehoiadaH3111 wentH5927 up, and fellH6293 on him, and slewH4191 him: and he was buriedH6912 in his own houseH1004 in the wilderness.H4057
And the kingH4428 putH5414 BenaiahH1141 the sonH1121 of JehoiadaH3111 in his roomH8478 overH5921 the host:H6635 and ZadokH6659 the priestH3548 did the kingH4428 putH5414 in the roomH8478 of Abiathar.H54
And the kingH4428 sentH7971 and calledH7121 for Shimei,H8096 and saidH559 to him, BuildH1129 you an houseH1004 in Jerusalem,H3389 and dwellH3427 there,H8033 and goH3318 not forthH3318 thereH8033 any where.H575
For it shall be, that on the dayH3117 you goH3318 out, and passH5674 overH5674 the brookH5158 Kidron,H6939 you shall knowH3045 for certainH3045 that you shall surely die:H4191 your bloodH1818 shall be on your own head.H7218
And ShimeiH8096 saidH559 to the king,H4428 The sayingH1697 is good:H2896 as my lordH113 the kingH4428 has said,H1696 soH3651 will your servantH5650 do.H6213 And ShimeiH8096 dwelledH3427 in JerusalemH3389 manyH7227 days.H3117
And it cameH1961 to pass at the endH7093 of threeH7969 years,H8141 that twoH8147 of the servantsH5650 of ShimeiH8096 ranH1272 away to AchishH397 sonH1121 of MaachahH4601 kingH4428 of Gath.H1661 And they toldH5046 Shimei,H8096 saying,H559 Behold,H2009 your servantsH5650 be in Gath.H1661
And ShimeiH8096 arose,H6965 and saddledH2280 his ass,H2543 and wentH3212 to GathH1661 to AchishH397 to seekH1245 his servants:H5650 and ShimeiH8096 went,H3212 and broughtH935 his servantsH5650 from Gath.H1661
And it was toldH5046 SolomonH8010 that ShimeiH8096 had goneH1980 from JerusalemH3389 to Gath,H1661 and was comeH7725 again.H7725
And the kingH4428 sentH7971 and calledH7121 for Shimei,H8096 and saidH559 to him, Did I not make you to swearH7650 by the LORD,H3068 and protestedH5749 to you, saying,H559 KnowH3045 for a certain, on the dayH3117 you goH3318 out, and walkH1980 abroad any where,H575 that you shall surely die?H4191 and you saidH559 to me, The wordH1697 that I have heardH8085 is good.H2896
WhyH4100 then have you not keptH8104 the oathH7621 of the LORD,H3068 and the commandmentH4687 that I have chargedH6680 you with?
The kingH4428 saidH559 moreover to Shimei,H8096 You knowH3045 allH3605 the wickednessH7451 whichH834 your heartH3824 is privyH3045 to, that you didH6213 to DavidH1732 my father:H1 therefore the LORDH3068 shall returnH7725 your wickednessH7451 on your own head;H7218
And kingH4428 SolomonH8010 shall be blessed,H1288 and the throneH3678 of DavidH1732 shall be establishedH3559 beforeH6440 the LORDH3068 for ever.
So the kingH4428 commandedH6680 BenaiahH1141 the sonH1121 of Jehoiada;H3111 which wentH3318 out, and fellH6293 on him, that he died.H4191 And the kingdomH4467 was establishedH3559 in the handH3027 of Solomon.H8010
