1 H4428 Now king H1732 David H2204 was old H935 and stricken H3117 in years; H3680 and they covered H899 him with clothes, H3179 but he couldn't keep warm.
2 H5650 Therefore his servants H559 said H1245 to him, "Let there be sought H113 for my lord H4428 the king H5291 a young H1330 virgin. H5975 Let her stand H6440 before H4428 the king, H5532 and cherish H7901 him; and let her lie H2436 in your bosom, H113 that my lord H4428 the king H2552 may keep warm."
3 H1245 So they sought H3303 for a beautiful H5291 young lady H1366 throughout all the borders H3478 of Israel, H4672 and found H49 Abishag H7767 the Shunammite, H935 and brought H4428 her to the king.
4 H5291 The young lady H3966 was very H3303 beautiful; H5532 and she cherished H4428 the king, H8334 and ministered H4428 to him; but the king H3045 didn't know her intimately.
5 H138 Then Adonijah H1121 the son H2294 of Haggith H4984 exalted H559 himself, saying, H4427 "I will be king." H6213 Then he prepared H7393 him chariots H6571 and horsemen, H2572 and fifty H376 men H7323 to run H6440 before him.
6 H1 His father H6087 had not displeased H3117 him at any time H559 in saying, H6213 "Why have you done so?" H3966 and he was also a very H2896 handsome H3205 man; and he was born H310 after H53 Absalom.
7 H1697 He conferred H3097 with Joab H1121 the son H6870 of Zeruiah, H54 and with Abiathar H3548 the priest: H310 and they following H138 Adonijah H5826 helped him.
8 H6659 But Zadok H3548 the priest, H1141 and Benaiah H1121 the son H3077 of Jehoiada, H5416 and Nathan H5030 the prophet, H8096 and Shimei, H7472 and Rei, H1368 and the mighty men H1732 who belonged to David, H138 were not with Adonijah.
9 H138 Adonijah H2076 killed H6629 sheep H1241 and cattle H4806 and fatlings H68 by the stone H2120 of Zoheleth, H681 which is beside H5883 En Rogel; H7121 and he called H251 all his brothers, H4428 the king's H1121 sons, H582 and all the men H3063 of Judah, H4428 the king's H5650 servants:
10 H5416 but Nathan H5030 the prophet, H1141 and Benaiah, H1368 and the mighty men, H8010 and Solomon H251 his brother, H7121 he didn't call.
11 H5416 Then Nathan H559 spoke H1339 to Bathsheba H517 the mother H8010 of Solomon, H559 saying, H8085 "Haven't you heard H138 that Adonijah H1121 the son H2294 of Haggith H4427 reigns, H1732 and David H113 our lord H3045 doesn't know it?
12 H3212 Now therefore come, H3289 please let me give you counsel, H4422 that you may save H5315 your own life, H5315 and the life H1121 of your son H8010 Solomon.
13 H3212 Go H935 in H4428 to king H1732 David, H559 and tell H113 him, ‘Didn't you, my lord, H4428 king, H7650 swear H519 to your handmaid, H559 saying, H3588 Assuredly H8010 Solomon H1121 your son H4427 shall reign H310 after H3427 me, and he shall sit H3678 on my throne? H138 Why then does Adonijah H4427 reign?'
14 H1696 Behold, while you yet talk H4428 there with the king, H935 I also will come in H310 after H4390 you, and confirm H1697 your words."
15 H1339 Bathsheba H935 went in H4428 to the king H2315 into the room. H4428 The king H3966 was very H2204 old; H49 and Abishag H7767 the Shunammite H8334 was ministering H4428 to the king.
16 H1339 Bathsheba H6915 bowed, H6915 and showed respect H4428 to the king. H4428 The king H559 said, "What would you like?"
17 H559 She said H113 to him, "My lord, H7650 you swore H113 by Yahweh H430 your God H519 to your handmaid, H8010 ‘Assuredly Solomon H1121 your son H4427 shall reign H310 after H3427 me, and he shall sit H3678 on my throne.'
18 H138 Now, behold, Adonijah H4427 reigns; H113 and you, my lord H4427 the king, H3045 don't know it.
19 H2076 He has slain H7794 cattle H4806 and fatlings H6629 and sheep H7230 in abundance, H7121 and has called H1121 all the sons H4428 of the king, H54 and Abiathar H3548 the priest, H3097 and Joab H8269 the captain H6635 of the army; H7121 but he hasn't called H8010 Solomon H5650 your servant.
20 H113 You, my lord H4428 the king, H5869 the eyes H3478 of all Israel H5046 are on you, that you should tell H3427 them who shall sit H3678 on the throne H113 of my lord H4428 the king H310 after him.
21 H113 Otherwise it will happen, when my lord H4428 the king H7901 shall sleep H1 with his fathers, H1121 that I and my son H8010 Solomon H2400 shall be counted offenders."
22 H1696 Behold, while she yet talked H4428 with the king, H5416 Nathan H5030 the prophet H935 came in.
23 H5046 They told H4428 the king, H559 saying, H5416 "Behold, Nathan H5030 the prophet!" H935 When he had come in H6440 before H4428 the king, H7812 he bowed H4428 himself before the king H639 with his face H776 to the ground.
24 H5416 Nathan H559 said, H113 "My lord, H4428 king, H559 have you said, H138 ‘Adonijah H4427 shall reign H310 after H3427 me, and he shall sit H3678 on my throne?'
25 H3381 For he is gone down H3117 this day, H2076 and has slain H7794 cattle H4806 and fatlings H6629 and sheep H7230 in abundance, H7121 and has called H4428 all the king's H1121 sons, H8269 and the captains H6635 of the army, H54 and Abiathar H3548 the priest. H398 Behold, they are eating H8354 and drinking H6440 before H559 him, and say, H2421 ‘Long live H4428 king H138 Adonijah!'
26 H7121 But he hasn't called H5650 me, even me your servant, H6659 and Zadok H3548 the priest, H1141 and Benaiah H1121 the son H3077 of Jehoiada, H5650 and your servant H8010 Solomon.
27 H1697 Is this thing H1961 done H113 by my lord H4428 the king, H3045 and you haven't shown H5650 to your servants H3427 who should sit H3678 on the throne H113 of my lord H4428 the king H310 after him?"
28 H4428 Then king H1732 David H6030 answered, H7121 "Call H1339 to me Bathsheba." H935 She came H4428 into the king's H6440 presence, H5975 and stood H6440 before H4428 the king.
29 H4428 The king H7650 swore, H559 and said, H3068 "As Yahweh H2416 lives, H6299 who has redeemed H5315 my soul H6869 out of all adversity,
30 H7650 most certainly as I swore H3068 to you by Yahweh, H430 the God H3478 of Israel, H559 saying, H8010 ‘Assuredly Solomon H1121 your son H4427 shall reign H310 after H3427 me, and he shall sit H3678 on my throne H6213 in my place;' most certainly so will I do H3117 this day."
31 H1339 Then Bathsheba H6915 bowed H639 with her face H776 to the earth, H7812 and showed respect H4428 to the king, H559 and said, H113 "Let my lord H4428 king H1732 David H2421 live H5769 forever!"
32 H4428 King H1732 David H559 said, H7121 "Call H6659 to me Zadok H3548 the priest, H5416 Nathan H5030 the prophet, H1141 and Benaiah H1121 the son H3077 of Jehoiada." H935 They came H6440 before H4428 the king.
33 H4428 The king H559 said H3947 to them, "Take H5650 with you the servants H113 of your lord, H8010 and cause Solomon H1121 my son H7392 to ride H6506 on my own mule, H3381 and bring him down H1521 to Gihon.
34 H6659 Let Zadok H3548 the priest H5416 and Nathan H5030 the prophet H4886 anoint H4428 him there king H3478 over Israel. H8628 Blow H7782 the trumpet, H559 and say, H2421 ‘Long live H4428 king H8010 Solomon!'
35 H5927 Then you shall come up H310 after H935 him, and he shall come H3427 and sit H3678 on my throne; H4427 for he shall be king H6680 in my place. I have appointed H5057 him to be prince H3478 over Israel H3063 and over Judah."
36 H1141 Benaiah H1121 the son H3077 of Jehoiada H6030 answered H4428 the king, H6030 and said, H543 "Amen. H3068 May Yahweh, H430 the God H113 of my lord H4428 the king, H559 say so.
37 H3068 As Yahweh H3068 has been with my lord H4428 the king, H8010 even so may he be with Solomon, H1431 and make H3678 his throne H1431 greater H3678 than the throne H113 of my lord H4428 king H1732 David."
38 H6659 So Zadok H3548 the priest, H5416 and Nathan H5030 the prophet, H1141 and Benaiah H1121 the son H3077 of Jehoiada, H3774 and the Cherethites H6432 and the Pelethites, H3381 went down, H8010 and caused Solomon H7392 to ride H4428 on king H1732 David's H6506 mule, H3212 and brought H1521 him to Gihon.
39 H6659 Zadok H3548 the priest H3947 took H7161 the horn H8081 of oil H168 out of the Tent, H4886 and anointed H8010 Solomon. H8628 They blew H7782 the trumpet; H5971 and all the people H559 said, H2421 "Long live H4428 king H8010 Solomon!"
40 H5971 All the people H5927 came up H310 after H5971 him, and the people H2490 piped H2485 with pipes, H8056 and rejoiced H1419 with great H8057 joy, H776 so that the earth H1234 shook H6963 with their sound.
41 H138 Adonijah H7121 and all the guests H8085 who were with him heard H3615 it as they had made an end H398 of eating. H3097 When Joab H8085 heard H6963 the sound H7782 of the trumpet, H559 he said, H6963 "Why is this noise H7151 of the city H1993 being in an uproar?"
42 H1696 While he yet spoke, H3129 behold, Jonathan H1121 the son H54 of Abiathar H3548 the priest H935 came: H138 and Adonijah H559 said, H935 "Come H935 in; H376 for you are a worthy man, H1319 and bring H2896 good H1319 news."
43 H3129 Jonathan H6030 answered H138 Adonijah, H61 "Most certainly H113 our lord H4428 king H1732 David H8010 has made Solomon H4428 king.
44 H4428 The king H7971 has sent H6659 with him Zadok H3548 the priest, H5416 Nathan H5030 the prophet, H1141 Benaiah H1121 the son H3077 of Jehoiada, H3774 and the Cherethites H6432 and the Pelethites; H7392 and they have caused him to ride H4428 on the king's H6506 mule.
45 H6659 Zadok H3548 the priest H5416 and Nathan H5030 the prophet H4886 have anointed H4428 him king H1521 in Gihon. H5927 They have come up H8056 from there rejoicing, H7151 so that the city H1949 rang again. H6963 This is the noise H8085 that you have heard.
47 H4428 Moreover the king's H5650 servants H935 came H1288 to bless H113 our lord H4428 king H1732 David, H559 saying, H430 ‘May your God H8034 make the name H8010 of Solomon H3190 better H8034 than your name, H1431 and make H3678 his throne H1431 greater H3678 than your throne;' H4428 and the king H7812 bowed H4904 himself on the bed.
48 H559 Also thus said H4428 the king, H1288 ‘Blessed H3068 be Yahweh, H430 the God H3478 of Israel, H5414 who has given H3427 one to sit H3678 on my throne H3117 this day, H5869 my eyes H7200 even seeing it.'"
49 H7121 All the guests H138 of Adonijah H2729 were afraid, H6965 and rose up, H376 and each man H3212 went H1870 his way.
50 H138 Adonijah H3372 feared H6440 because H8010 of Solomon; H6965 and he arose, H3212 and went, H2388 and caught hold H7161 on the horns H4196 of the altar.
51 H5046 It was told H8010 Solomon, H559 saying, H138 "Behold, Adonijah H3372 fears H4428 king H8010 Solomon; H270 for, behold, he has laid hold H7161 on the horns H4196 of the altar, H559 saying, H4428 ‘Let king H8010 Solomon H7650 swear H3117 to me first H4191 that he will not kill H5650 his servant H2719 with the sword.'"
52 H8010 Solomon H559 said, H2428 "If he shows himself a worthy H1121 man, H8185 not a hair H5307 of him shall fall H776 to the earth; H7451 but if wickedness H4672 be found H4191 in him, he shall die."
