I Kings 1 (kjv)
Now kingH4428 DavidH1732 was oldH2204 and strickenH935 in yearsH3117; and they coveredH3680 him with clothesH899, but he gat no heatH3179.2Wherefore his servantsH5650 saidH559 unto him, Let there be soughtH1245 for my lordH113 the kingH4428 a youngH5291 virginH1330: and let her standH5975 beforeH6440 the kingH4428, and let her cherishH5532 him, and let her lieH7901 in thy bosomH2436, that my lordH113 the kingH4428 may get heatH2552.3So they soughtH1245 for a fairH3303 damselH5291 throughout all the coastsH1366 of IsraelH3478, and foundH4672 AbishagH49 a ShunammiteH7767, and broughtH935 her to the kingH4428.4And the damselH5291 was veryH3966 fairH3303, and cherishedH5532 the kingH4428, and ministeredH8334 to him: but the kingH4428 knewH3045 her not.
5Then AdonijahH138 the sonH1121 of HaggithH2294 exaltedH4984 himself, sayingH559, I will be kingH4427: and he preparedH6213 him chariotsH7393 and horsemenH6571, and fiftyH2572 menH376 to runH7323 beforeH6440 him.6And his fatherH1 had not displeasedH6087 him at any timeH3117 in sayingH559, Why hast thou done soH6213? and he also was a veryH3966 goodlyH2896 H8389 man; and his mother bareH3205 him afterH310 AbsalomH53.7And he conferredH1697 with JoabH3097 the sonH1121 of ZeruiahH6870, and with AbiatharH54 the priestH3548: and they followingH310 AdonijahH138 helpedH5826 him.8But ZadokH6659 the priestH3548, and BenaiahH1141 the sonH1121 of JehoiadaH3077, and NathanH5416 the prophetH5030, and ShimeiH8096, and ReiH7472, and the mighty menH1368 which belonged to DavidH1732, were not with AdonijahH138.9And AdonijahH138 slewH2076 sheepH6629 and oxenH1241 and fat cattleH4806 by the stoneH68 of ZohelethH2120, which is byH681 EnrogelH5883, and calledH7121 all his brethrenH251 the king'sH4428 sonsH1121, and all the menH582 of JudahH3063 the king'sH4428 servantsH5650:10But NathanH5416 the prophetH5030, and BenaiahH1141, and the mighty menH1368, and SolomonH8010 his brotherH251, he calledH7121 not.
11Wherefore NathanH5416 spakeH559 unto BathshebaH1339 the motherH517 of SolomonH8010, sayingH559, Hast thou not heardH8085 that AdonijahH138 the sonH1121 of HaggithH2294 doth reignH4427, and DavidH1732 our lordH113 knowethH3045 it not?12Now therefore comeH3212, let me, I pray thee, give thee counselH3289 H6098, that thou mayest saveH4422 thine own lifeH5315, and the lifeH5315 of thy sonH1121 SolomonH8010.13GoH3212 and get thee inH935 unto kingH4428 DavidH1732, and sayH559 unto him, Didst not thou, my lordH113, O kingH4428, swearH7650 unto thine handmaidH519, sayingH559, AssuredlyH3588 SolomonH8010 thy sonH1121 shall reignH4427 afterH310 me, and he shall sitH3427 upon my throneH3678? why then doth AdonijahH138 reignH4427?14Behold, while thou yet talkestH1696 there with the kingH4428, I also will come inH935 afterH310 thee, and confirmH4390 thy wordsH1697.
15And BathshebaH1339 went inH935 unto the kingH4428 into the chamberH2315: and the kingH4428 was veryH3966 oldH2204; and AbishagH49 the ShunammiteH7767 ministeredH8334 unto the kingH4428.16And BathshebaH1339 bowedH6915, and did obeisanceH7812 unto the kingH4428. And the kingH4428 saidH559, What wouldest thou?17And she saidH559 unto him, My lordH113, thou swarestH7650 by the LORDH3068 thy GodH430 unto thine handmaidH519, saying, Assuredly SolomonH8010 thy sonH1121 shall reignH4427 afterH310 me, and he shall sitH3427 upon my throneH3678.18And now, behold, AdonijahH138 reignethH4427; and now, my lordH113 the kingH4428, thou knowestH3045 it not:19And he hath slainH2076 oxenH7794 and fat cattleH4806 and sheepH6629 in abundanceH7230, and hath calledH7121 all the sonsH1121 of the kingH4428, and AbiatharH54 the priestH3548, and JoabH3097 the captainH8269 of the hostH6635: but SolomonH8010 thy servantH5650 hath he not calledH7121.20And thou, my lordH113, O kingH4428, the eyesH5869 of all IsraelH3478 are upon thee, that thou shouldest tellH5046 them who shall sitH3427 on the throneH3678 of my lordH113 the kingH4428 afterH310 him.21Otherwise it shall come to pass, when my lordH113 the kingH4428 shall sleepH7901 with his fathersH1, that I and my sonH1121 SolomonH8010 shall be counted offendersH2400.
22And, lo, while she yet talkedH1696 with the kingH4428, NathanH5416 the prophetH5030 also came inH935.23And they toldH5046 the kingH4428, sayingH559, Behold NathanH5416 the prophetH5030. And when he was come inH935 beforeH6440 the kingH4428, he bowedH7812 himself before the kingH4428 with his faceH639 to the groundH776.24And NathanH5416 saidH559, My lordH113, O kingH4428, hast thou saidH559, AdonijahH138 shall reignH4427 afterH310 me, and he shall sitH3427 upon my throneH3678?25For he is gone downH3381 this dayH3117, and hath slainH2076 oxenH7794 and fat cattleH4806 and sheepH6629 in abundanceH7230, and hath calledH7121 all the king'sH4428 sonsH1121, and the captainsH8269 of the hostH6635, and AbiatharH54 the priestH3548; and, behold, they eatH398 and drinkH8354 beforeH6440 him, and sayH559, God saveH2421 kingH4428 AdonijahH138.26But me, even me thy servantH5650, and ZadokH6659 the priestH3548, and BenaiahH1141 the sonH1121 of JehoiadaH3077, and thy servantH5650 SolomonH8010, hath he not calledH7121.27Is this thingH1697 doneH1961 by my lordH113 the kingH4428, and thou hast not shewedH3045 it unto thy servantH5650, who should sitH3427 on the throneH3678 of my lordH113 the kingH4428 afterH310 him?
28Then kingH4428 DavidH1732 answeredH6030 and saidH559, CallH7121 me BathshebaH1339. And she cameH935 into the king'sH4428 presenceH6440, and stoodH5975 beforeH6440 the kingH4428.29And the kingH4428 swareH7650, and saidH559, As the LORDH3068 livethH2416, that hath redeemedH6299 my soulH5315 out of all distressH6869,30Even as I swareH7650 unto thee by the LORDH3068 GodH430 of IsraelH3478, sayingH559, Assuredly SolomonH8010 thy sonH1121 shall reignH4427 afterH310 me, and he shall sitH3427 upon my throneH3678 in my stead; even so will I certainly doH6213 this dayH3117.31Then BathshebaH1339 bowedH6915 with her faceH639 to the earthH776, and did reverenceH7812 to the kingH4428, and saidH559, Let my lordH113 kingH4428 DavidH1732 liveH2421 for everH5769.
32And kingH4428 DavidH1732 saidH559, CallH7121 me ZadokH6659 the priestH3548, and NathanH5416 the prophetH5030, and BenaiahH1141 the sonH1121 of JehoiadaH3077. And they cameH935 beforeH6440 the kingH4428.33The kingH4428 also saidH559 unto them, TakeH3947 with you the servantsH5650 of your lordH113, and cause SolomonH8010 my sonH1121 to rideH7392 upon mine own muleH6506, and bring him downH3381 to GihonH1521:34And let ZadokH6659 the priestH3548 and NathanH5416 the prophetH5030 anointH4886 him there kingH4428 over IsraelH3478: and blowH8628 ye with the trumpetH7782, and sayH559, God saveH2421 kingH4428 SolomonH8010.35Then ye shall come upH5927 afterH310 him, that he may comeH935 and sitH3427 upon my throneH3678; for he shall be kingH4427 in my stead: and I have appointedH6680 him to be rulerH5057 over IsraelH3478 and over JudahH3063.36And BenaiahH1141 the sonH1121 of JehoiadaH3077 answeredH6030 the kingH4428, and saidH559, AmenH543: the LORDH3068 GodH430 of my lordH113 the kingH4428 sayH559 so too.37As the LORDH3068 hath been with my lordH113 the kingH4428, even so be he with SolomonH8010, and makeH1431 his throneH3678 greaterH1431 than the throneH3678 of my lordH113 kingH4428 DavidH1732.
38So ZadokH6659 the priestH3548, and NathanH5416 the prophetH5030, and BenaiahH1141 the sonH1121 of JehoiadaH3077, and the CherethitesH3774, and the PelethitesH6432, went downH3381, and caused SolomonH8010 to rideH7392 upon kingH4428 David'sH1732 muleH6506, and broughtH3212 him to GihonH1521.39And ZadokH6659 the priestH3548 tookH3947 an hornH7161 of oilH8081 out of the tabernacleH168, and anointedH4886 SolomonH8010. And they blewH8628 the trumpetH7782; and all the peopleH5971 saidH559, God saveH2421 kingH4428 SolomonH8010.40And all the peopleH5971 came upH5927 afterH310 him, and the peopleH5971 pipedH2490 with pipesH2485, and rejoicedH8056 with greatH1419 joyH8057, so that the earthH776 rentH1234 with the soundH6963 of them.
41And AdonijahH138 and all the guestsH7121 that were with him heardH8085 it as they had made an endH3615 of eatingH398. And when JoabH3097 heardH8085 the soundH6963 of the trumpetH7782, he saidH559, Wherefore is this noiseH6963 of the cityH7151 being in an uproarH1993?42And while he yet spakeH1696, behold, JonathanH3129 the sonH1121 of AbiatharH54 the priestH3548 cameH935: and AdonijahH138 saidH559 unto him, Come inH935; for thou art a valiantH2428 manH376 H381, and bringestH1319 goodH2896 tidingsH1319.43And JonathanH3129 answeredH6030 and saidH559 to AdonijahH138, VerilyH61 our lordH113 kingH4428 DavidH1732 hath made SolomonH8010 kingH4427.44And the kingH4428 hath sentH7971 with him ZadokH6659 the priestH3548, and NathanH5416 the prophetH5030, and BenaiahH1141 the sonH1121 of JehoiadaH3077, and the CherethitesH3774, and the PelethitesH6432, and they have caused him to rideH7392 upon the king'sH4428 muleH6506:45And ZadokH6659 the priestH3548 and NathanH5416 the prophetH5030 have anointedH4886 him kingH4428 in GihonH1521: and they are come upH5927 from thence rejoicingH8056, so that the cityH7151 rang againH1949. This is the noiseH6963 that ye have heardH8085.46And also SolomonH8010 sittethH3427 on the throneH3678 of the kingdomH4410.47And moreover the king'sH4428 servantsH5650 cameH935 to blessH1288 our lordH113 kingH4428 DavidH1732, sayingH559, GodH430 make the nameH8034 of SolomonH8010 betterH3190 than thy nameH8034, and makeH1431 his throneH3678 greaterH1431 than thy throneH3678. And the kingH4428 bowedH7812 himself upon the bedH4904.48And also thus saidH559 the kingH4428, BlessedH1288 be the LORDH3068 GodH430 of IsraelH3478, which hath givenH5414 one to sitH3427 on my throneH3678 this dayH3117, mine eyesH5869 even seeingH7200 it.49And all the guestsH7121 that were with AdonijahH138 were afraidH2729, and rose upH6965, and wentH3212 every manH376 his wayH1870.
50And AdonijahH138 fearedH3372 becauseH6440 of SolomonH8010, and aroseH6965, and wentH3212, and caught holdH2388 on the hornsH7161 of the altarH4196.51And it was toldH5046 SolomonH8010, sayingH559, Behold, AdonijahH138 fearethH3372 kingH4428 SolomonH8010: for, lo, he hath caught holdH270 on the hornsH7161 of the altarH4196, sayingH559, Let kingH4428 SolomonH8010 swearH7650 unto me to dayH3117 that he will not slayH4191 his servantH5650 with the swordH2719.52And SolomonH8010 saidH559, If he will shew himself a worthyH2428 manH1121, there shall not an hairH8185 of him fallH5307 to the earthH776: but if wickednessH7451 shall be foundH4672 in him, he shall dieH4191.53So kingH4428 SolomonH8010 sentH7971, and they brought him downH3381 from the altarH4196. And he cameH935 and bowedH7812 himself to kingH4428 SolomonH8010: and SolomonH8010 saidH559 unto him, GoH3212 to thine houseH1004.
