Chapter 2

  1. 1. Now the days
    H3117
    of David
    H1732
    drew nigh
    H7126
    that he should die;
    H4191
    and he charged
    H6680
    Solomon
    H8010
    his son,
    H1121
    saying,
    H559
  2. 2. I go
    H1980
    the way
    H1870
    of all the earth:
    H776
    be thou strong
    H2388
    therefore, and shew thyself a man;
    H376
  3. 3. And keep
    H8104
    the charge
    H4931
    of the LORD
    H3068
    thy God,
    H430
    to walk
    H3212
    in his ways,
    H1870
    to keep
    H8104
    his statutes,
    H2708
    and his commandments,
    H4687
    and his judgments,
    H4941
    and his testimonies,
    H5715
    as it is written
    H3789
    in the law
    H8451
    of Moses,
    H4872
    that thou mayest prosper
    H7919
    in all that thou doest,
    H6213
    and whithersoever thou turnest
    H6437
    thyself:
  4. 4. That the LORD
    H3068
    may continue
    H6965
    his word
    H1697
    which he spake
    H1696
    concerning me, saying,
    H559
    If thy children
    H1121
    take heed
    H8104
    to their way,
    H1870
    to walk
    H3212
    before
    H6440
    me in truth
    H571
    with all their heart
    H3824
    and with all their soul,
    H5315
    there shall not fail
    H3772
    thee
    H559
    (said he) a man
    H376
    on the throne
    H3678
    of Israel.
    H3478
  5. 5. Moreover thou knowest
    H3045
    also what Joab
    H3097
    the son
    H1121
    of Zeruiah
    H6870
    did
    H6213
    to me, and what he did
    H6213
    to the two
    H8147
    captains
    H8269
    of the hosts
    H6635
    of Israel,
    H3478
    unto Abner
    H74
    the son
    H1121
    of Ner,
    H5369
    and unto Amasa
    H6021
    the son
    H1121
    of Jether,
    H3500
    whom he slew,
    H2026
    and shed
    H7760
    the blood
    H1818
    of war
    H4421
    in peace,
    H7965
    and put
    H5414
    the blood
    H1818
    of war
    H4421
    upon his girdle
    H2290
    that was about his loins,
    H4975
    and in his shoes
    H5275
    that were on his feet.
    H7272
  6. 6. Do
    H6213
    therefore according to thy wisdom,
    H2451
    and let not his hoar head
    H7872
    go down
    H3381
    to the grave
    H7585
    in peace.
    H7965
  7. 7. But shew
    H6213
    kindness
    H2617
    unto the sons
    H1121
    of Barzillai
    H1271
    the Gileadite,
    H1569
    and let them be of those that eat
    H398
    at thy table:
    H7979
    for so they came
    H7126
    to me when I fled
    H1272
    because
    H6440
    of Absalom
    H53
    thy brother.
    H251
  8. 8. And, behold, thou hast with thee Shimei
    H8096
    the son
    H1121
    of Gera,
    H1617
    a Benjamite
    H1145
    of Bahurim,
    H980
    which cursed
    H7043
    me with a grievous
    H4834
    curse
    H7045
    in the day
    H3117
    when I went
    H3212
    to Mahanaim:
    H4266
    but he came down
    H3381
    to meet
    H7125
    me at Jordan,
    H3383
    and I sware
    H7650
    to him by the LORD,
    H3068
    saying,
    H559
    I will not put thee to death
    H4191
    with the sword.
    H2719
  9. 9. Now therefore hold him not guiltless:
    H5352
    for thou art a wise
    H2450
    man,
    H376
    and knowest
    H3045
    what thou oughtest to do
    H6213
    unto him; but his hoar head
    H7872
    bring thou down
    H3381
    to the grave
    H7585
    with blood.
    H1818
  10. 10. So David
    H1732
    slept
    H7901
    with his fathers,
    H1
    and was buried
    H6912
    in the city
    H5892
    of David.
    H1732
  11. 11. And the days
    H3117
    that David
    H1732
    reigned
    H4427
    over Israel
    H3478
    were forty
    H705
    years:
    H8141
    seven
    H7651
    years
    H8141
    reigned
    H4427
    he in Hebron,
    H2275
    and thirty
    H7970
    and three
    H7969
    years
    H8141
    reigned
    H4427
    he in Jerusalem.
    H3389
  12. 12. Then sat
    H3427
    Solomon
    H8010
    upon the throne
    H3678
    of David
    H1732
    his father;
    H1
    and his kingdom
    H4438
    was established
    H3559
    greatly.
    H3966
  13. 13. And Adonijah
    H138
    the son
    H1121
    of Haggith
    H2294
    came
    H935
    to Bathsheba
    H1339
    the mother
    H517
    of Solomon.
    H8010
    And she said,
    H559
    Comest
    H935
    thou peaceably?
    H7965
    And he said,
    H559
    Peaceably.
    H7965
  14. 14. He said
    H559
    moreover, I have somewhat to say
    H1697
    unto thee. And she said,
    H559
    Say on.
    H1696
  15. 15. And he said,
    H559
    Thou knowest
    H3045
    that the kingdom
    H4410
    was mine, and that all Israel
    H3478
    set
    H7760
    their faces
    H6440
    on me, that I should reign:
    H4427
    howbeit the kingdom
    H4410
    is turned about,
    H5437
    and is become my brother's:
    H251
    for it was his from the LORD.
    H3068
  16. 16. And now I ask
    H7592
    one
    H259
    petition
    H7596
    of thee, deny
    H7725
    me
    H6440
    not. And she said
    H559
    unto him, Say on.
    H1696
  17. 17. And he said,
    H559
    Speak,
    H559
    I pray thee, unto Solomon
    H8010
    the king,
    H4428
    (for he will not say
    H7725
    thee
    H6440
    nay,)
    H7725
    that he give
    H5414
    me Abishag
    H49
    the Shunammite
    H7767
    to wife.
    H802
  18. 18. And Bathsheba
    H1339
    said,
    H559
    Well;
    H2896
    I will speak
    H1696
    for thee unto the king.
    H4428
  19. 19. Bathsheba
    H1339
    therefore went
    H935
    unto king
    H4428
    Solomon,
    H8010
    to speak
    H1696
    unto him for Adonijah.
    H138
    And the king
    H4428
    rose up
    H6965
    to meet
    H7125
    her, and bowed
    H7812
    himself unto her, and sat down
    H3427
    on his throne,
    H3678
    and caused a seat
    H3678
    to be set
    H7760
    for the king's
    H4428
    mother;
    H517
    and she sat
    H3427
    on his right hand.
    H3225
  20. 20. Then she said,
    H559
    I desire
    H7592
    one
    H259
    small
    H6996
    petition
    H7596
    of thee; I pray thee, say
    H7725
    me
    H6440
    not nay.
    H7725
    And the king
    H4428
    said
    H559
    unto her, Ask on,
    H7592
    my mother:
    H517
    for I will not say
    H7725
    thee
    H6440
    nay.
    H7725
  21. 21. And she said,
    H559
    Let Abishag
    H49
    the Shunammite
    H7767
    be given
    H5414
    to Adonijah
    H138
    thy brother
    H251
    to wife.
    H802
  22. 22. And king
    H4428
    Solomon
    H8010
    answered
    H6030
    and said
    H559
    unto his mother,
    H517
    And why dost thou ask
    H7592
    Abishag
    H49
    the Shunammite
    H7767
    for Adonijah?
    H138
    ask
    H7592
    for him the kingdom
    H4410
    also; for he is mine elder
    H1419
    brother;
    H251
    even for him, and for Abiathar
    H54
    the priest,
    H3548
    and for Joab
    H3097
    the son
    H1121
    of Zeruiah.
    H6870
  23. 23. Then king
    H4428
    Solomon
    H8010
    sware
    H7650
    by the LORD,
    H3068
    saying,
    H559
    God
    H430
    do
    H6213
    so to me, and more also,
    H3254
    if Adonijah
    H138
    have not spoken
    H1696
    this word
    H1697
    against his own life.
    H5315
  24. 24. Now therefore, as the LORD
    H3068
    liveth,
    H2416
    which hath established
    H3559
    me, and set
    H3427
    me on the throne
    H3678
    of David
    H1732
    my father,
    H1
    and who hath made
    H6213
    me an house,
    H1004
    as he promised,
    H1696
    Adonijah
    H138
    shall be put to death
    H4191
    this day.
    H3117
  25. 25. And king
    H4428
    Solomon
    H8010
    sent
    H7971
    by the hand
    H3027
    of Benaiah
    H1141
    the son
    H1121
    of Jehoiada;
    H3077
    and he fell
    H6293
    upon him that he died.
    H4191
  26. 26. And unto Abiathar
    H54
    the priest
    H3548
    said
    H559
    the king,
    H4428
    Get
    H3212
    thee to Anathoth,
    H6068
    unto thine own fields;
    H7704
    for thou art worthy
    H376
    of death:
    H4194
    but I will not at this time
    H3117
    put thee to death,
    H4191
    because thou barest
    H5375
    the ark
    H727
    of the Lord
    H136
    GOD
    H3069
    before
    H6440
    David
    H1732
    my father,
    H1
    and because thou hast been afflicted
    H6031
    in all wherein my father
    H1
    was afflicted.
    H6031
  27. 27. So Solomon
    H8010
    thrust out
    H1644
    Abiathar
    H54
    from being priest
    H3548
    unto the LORD;
    H3068
    that he might fulfil
    H4390
    the word
    H1697
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    which he spake
    H1696
    concerning the house
    H1004
    of Eli
    H5941
    in Shiloh.
    H7887
  28. 28. Then tidings
    H8052
    came
    H935
    to Joab:
    H3097
    for Joab
    H3097
    had turned
    H5186
    after
    H310
    Adonijah,
    H138
    though he turned
    H5186
    not after
    H310
    Absalom.
    H53
    And Joab
    H3097
    fled
    H5127
    unto the tabernacle
    H168
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    and caught hold
    H2388
    on the horns
    H7161
    of the altar.
    H4196
  29. 29. And it was told
    H5046
    king
    H4428
    Solomon
    H8010
    that Joab
    H3097
    was fled
    H5127
    unto the tabernacle
    H168
    of the LORD;
    H3068
    and, behold, he is by
    H681
    the altar.
    H4196
    Then Solomon
    H8010
    sent
    H7971
    Benaiah
    H1141
    the son
    H1121
    of Jehoiada,
    H3077
    saying,
    H559
    Go,
    H3212
    fall
    H6293
    upon him.
  30. 30. And Benaiah
    H1141
    came
    H935
    to the tabernacle
    H168
    of the LORD,
    H3068
    and said
    H559
    unto him, Thus saith
    H559
    the king,
    H4428
    Come forth.
    H3318
    And he said,
    H559
    Nay; but I will die
    H4191
    here. And Benaiah
    H1141
    brought
    H7725
    the king
    H4428
    word
    H1697
    again,
    H7725
    saying,
    H559
    Thus said
    H1696
    Joab,
    H3097
    and thus he answered
    H6030
    me.
  31. 31. And the king
    H4428
    said
    H559
    unto him, Do
    H6213
    as he hath said,
    H1696
    and fall
    H6293
    upon him, and bury
    H6912
    him; that thou mayest take away
    H5493
    the innocent
    H2600
    blood,
    H1818
    which Joab
    H3097
    shed,
    H8210
    from me, and from the house
    H1004
    of my father.
    H1
  32. 32. And the LORD
    H3068
    shall return
    H7725
    his blood
    H1818
    upon his own head,
    H7218
    who fell
    H6293
    upon two
    H8147
    men
    H582
    more righteous
    H6662
    and better
    H2896
    than he, and slew
    H2026
    them with the sword,
    H2719
    my father
    H1
    David
    H1732
    not knowing
    H3045
    thereof, to wit, Abner
    H74
    the son
    H1121
    of Ner,
    H5369
    captain
    H8269
    of the host
    H6635
    of Israel,
    H3478
    and Amasa
    H6021
    the son
    H1121
    of Jether,
    H3500
    captain
    H8269
    of the host
    H6635
    of Judah.
    H3063
  33. 33. Their blood
    H1818
    shall therefore return
    H7725
    upon the head
    H7218
    of Joab,
    H3097
    and upon the head
    H7218
    of his seed
    H2233
    for ever:
    H5769
    but upon David,
    H1732
    and upon his seed,
    H2233
    and upon his house,
    H1004
    and upon his throne,
    H3678
    shall there be peace
    H7965
    for
    H5704
    ever
    H5769
    from the LORD.
    H3068
  34. 34. So Benaiah
    H1141
    the son
    H1121
    of Jehoiada
    H3077
    went up,
    H5927
    and fell
    H6293
    upon him, and slew
    H4191
    him: and he was buried
    H6912

    H7650
    by the LORD,

    H5749
    unto thee, saying,
    H559

    H3045
    for a certain,
    H3045
    on the day
    H3117
    thou goest out,
    H3318

    H1980
    abroad any whither,
    H575

    H4191
    die?

    H1697
    that I have heard

    H6213
