Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate.  Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach.  For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.

(Tom & Suzi)

Chapter 1

1. Now, King David was old and advanced in years, and they covered him with garments, but he could not keep warm.

2. Therefore, his servants said to him, “Let them seek a young virgin for my lord, the King, and let her stand before the King, and let her be of service to him, and lie in your bosom so that my lord the King may be warm.”

3. So they sought for a beautiful young woman throughout all the territory of Israel, and they found Abishag the Shunammite, and they brought her to the King.

4. And the young woman was very beautiful, and she began attending to the King and ministered to him, but the King did not know her.

5. Now, Adonijah, son of Haggith, had exalted himself saying, “I will be king!”, and he prepared for himself chariots and horsemen, and fifty men to run before him,

6.and his father had not grieved him at any time by saying, “Why have you done like this?” He also was very handsome, and his mother bore him after Absalom.

7. Moreover, he conferred with Joab ben Zeruiah, and with Abiathar the priest, and they followed Adonijah and helped him.

8. But Zadok the priest, and Benaiah ben Jehoiada, and Nathan the prophet, and Shimei, and Rei, and those who were David’s mighty men were not with Adonijah.

9. And Adonijah sacrificed sheep, and cattle, and fatlings near the stone of Zoheleth which is beside En-rogel, and he called all his brothers, sons of the King, and all the men of Judah, servants of the King.

10. However, Nathan the prophet, or Benaiah, or the mighty men, or Solomon his brother, he did not call.

11. Then Nathan spoke to Bathsheba, Solomon’s mother, saying, “Have you not heard that Adonijah ben Haggith has begun to reign, and David our lord does not know?

12.Therefore, come! Let me, I beg you, give you counsel, that you and your son Solomon may escape!

13.Go, and enter in to David the King and say to him, ‘O King, my lord, did you not swear to your handmaid saying, “Solomon your son shall certainly become king after me, and he will sit on my throne!” Why, then, is Adonijah king?’

14.Behold, while you are still there, speaking with the King, I will come in after you and confirm your words.”

15. So, Bathsheba went in to the King, to his chamber (now the King was very old, and Abishag the Shunammite was ministering to the King).

16. And Bathsheba bowed and prostrated herself before the King, and the King said, “What do you want?”

17. Then she said to him, “My lord, you swore to your handmaid by Jehovah, your God, saying, ‘Solomon, your son shall certainly become king after me, and he will sit on my throne,’

18.but behold, Adonijah has now become king, even though, my lord the King, you did not know.

19.Also, he has sacrificed a multitude of oxen, and fatlings, and sheep, and he has called all the kings’ sons, and Abiathar the priest, and Joab the captain of the army, but Solomon your servant, he did not call.

20.And you, my lord the King, the eyes of all Israel are upon you to make known to them who should sit upon the throne of my lord the King after him.

21.Otherwise, it will come to pass that when my lord the King sleeps with his fathers, I and my son Solomon will be condemned sinners.”

22. And behold, while she was still speaking with the King, Nathan the prophet came in.

23. And they announced to the King, “Behold, Nathan the prophet!” And he entered in before the King, and prostrated himself before the King, with his face to the ground.

24. And Nathan said, “My lord the King, you have said, ‘Adonijah will reign after me, and he will sit on my throne,’

25.for he has gone down today and is sacrificing a multitude of oxen, and fatlings, and sheep, and he has called all the King’s sons, and captains of the army, and Abiathar the priest. And behold, they are eating and drinking before him, and they are saying, ‘Long live King Adonijah!’

26.But me, your servant, and Zadok the priest, and Benaiah ben Jehoiada, and Solomon your servant, he did not call.

27.If this thing has been done by my lord the King, then you did not tell your servant who will sit on the throne of my lord the King after him!”

28. Then David the King answered and said, “Call Bathsheba to me!” And she entered into the King’s presence, and stood before the King.

29. And the King swore and said, “As Jehovah lives, who redeemed my life from all distress,

30.just as I swore to you by the Lord God of Israel, saying, ‘Surely, Solomon your son will be king after me, and he will sit on my throne in my stead,’ so I will certainly do this day!”

31. Then Bathsheba bowed her face to the earth, and prostrated herself before the King, and said, “Let my lord, David the King, live forever!”

32. And King David said, “Call Zadok the priest, and Nathan the prophet, and Benaiah ben Jehoiada to me,” and they entered in before the King.

33. Then the King said to them, “Take the servants of your lord with you, and have my son Solomon to ride on my own mule, and bring him down to Gihon,

34.and Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet shall anoint him there as King over Israel, and you shall blow with the shofar, and declare, ‘Long live King Solomon!’

35.Then you shall go up after him, and he shall come in and sit upon my throne, and he shall reign in my stead, for him I commanded to be ruler over Israel and over Judah.”

36. And Benaiah ben Jehoiada answered the King and said, “Amen! May Jehovah, the God of my lord the King, say so!

37.As Jehovah has been with my lord the King, so may He be with Solomon, and make his throne greater than the throne of my lord, King David!”

38. Then Zadok the priest went down, and Nathan the prophet, and Benaiah ben Jehoiada, and the Cherethites and the Pelethites, and they mounted Solomon on King David’s mule and brought him to Gihon.

39. And Zadok the priest took the horn of oil from the tent, and he anointed Solomon, and they blew with the shofar, and all the people said, “Long live King Solomon!”

40. And all the people came up after him, and the people were piping with pipes, and rejoicing with great joy such that the earth was rent with the sound of them.

41. Then Adonijah and all the guests with him heard it, and they stopped eating. And Joab heard the sound of the shofar and said, “Why is a sound of an uproar in the city?”

42. And while he was yet speaking, behold, Jonathan ben Abiathar the priest came in. Then Adonijah said, “Come in, for you are a valiant man and you bring good tidings.”

43. And Jonathan answered and said to Adonijah, “Truly, our lord David the King has made Solomon king,

44.and the King has sent with him Zadok the priest, and Nathan the prophet, and Benaiah ben Jehoida, and the Cherethites, and the Pelethites, and they made him to ride upon the King’s mule,

45.and Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet anointed him King in Gihon, and they have gone up from there rejoicing, and the city is in an uproar. This is the sound that you heard.

46.And now, Solomon is sitting on the throne of the kingdom!

47.And also the King’s servants have come to salute our lord, David the King and to say, ‘May your God make the name of Solomon better than your name, and his throne greater than your throne!’ Then the King bowed himself upon the bed.

48.And thus, the King also said, ‘Blessed is the Lord God of Israel, who, on this day has given someone to sit on my throne, and also my eyes seeing it.’”

49. And all who were called and who were for Adonijah were terrified, and stood up and departed, each one to his own way.

50. And Adonijah feared the presence of Solomon, so he arose and departed and took hold of the horns of the altar.

51. The it was reported to Solomon saying, “Behold, Adonijah fears Solomon the king, and lo, he has taken hold of the horns of the altar saying, ‘Let king Solomon swear to me this day he will not put his servant to death with the sword.’”

52. Then Solomon said, “If he becomes a worthy man, not a single hair of his head will fall to the ground, but if he is found doing evil then he will die!”

53. And Solomon the King sent, and they brought him down from the altar, and he came in and bowed himself to Solomon the King. Then Solomon said to him, “Go to your house!”

Chapter 2

Back to Top

1. When the time drew near for David to die, he commanded Solomon, his son saying,

2.“I am going in the way of all the earth, therefore, be strong and become a man,

3.and keep the charge of the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His statutes, His commandments, and His Judgments, and His testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, so that you may succeed in all that you do, and wherever you turn,

4.so that the Lord may carry out His word that He spoke to me saying, ‘If your sons keep their ways, to walk before me in truth with all their hearts, and with all their souls, you will never fail to have a man on the throne of Israel, says He.’

5.Moreover, you also know what Joab, son of Zeruiah did to me, and what he did to the two captains of the armies of Israel, to Abner, son of Ner, and to Amasa, son of Jether, even slaying them, and caused the blood of war during the time of peace. And he put the blood of war on his belt that was around his loins and on his sandals that were on his feet.

6.Therefore, do according to your wisdom and do not let his grey hair go down to Sheol in peace,

7.but, deal kindly with the sons of Barzillai the Gileadite, and let them eat among those at your table, thus, because they came to me when I fled from Absalom your brother.

8.Behold, also with you is Shimei, son of Gera, the Benjamite from Bahurim who cursed me with a grievous curse on the day I departed to Mahanaim, and he came down to encounter me at the Jordan. But I swore to him by Jehovah saying, ‘I will not put you to death by the sword’.

9.And now, do not hold him innocent for you are a wise man, and you will know what you should do to him, but bring down his grey head with blood to Sheol!”

10. Then David slept with his fathers, and he was buried in the city of David.

11. Now the days that David reigned over Israel were forty years. He reigned seven years in Hebron, and he reigned thirty-three years in Jerusalem.

12. And Solomon sat upon the throne of his father David, and his kingdom was greatly established.

13. And Adonijah, son of Haggith went in to Bashsheba, mother of Solomon and she said, “Do you come peacefully?” Then he said, “Peacefully.”

14. Then he said, “I have something to say to you,” and she said, “Speak.”

15. Then he said, “You know that the kingdom should have been mine, and that all Israel set their faces on me to become king. But, the kingdom has become turned about, and has become my brother’s, for it came to him from the Lord,

16.and now, I am asking one request from you. Do not refuse me.” The she said to him, “Speak.”

17. Then he said, “If you will, speak to Solomon the King, for he will not refuse you, that he give to me Abishag the Shunammite for a wife.”

18. And Bathsheba said, “It is good. I will speak to the King for you.”

19. Then Bathsheba went in to King Solomon to speak to him for Adonijah. And the King stood up to greet her, and bowed to her, then he sat down upon his throne, and a seat was placed for the King’s mother, and she sat at his right hand.

20. And she said, “I am asking one small request from you. Do not refuse me.” Then he said to her, “Ask me, my mother, for I will not refuse you.”

21. Then she said, “Give Abishag the Shunammite to your brother Adonijah for a wife.”

22. And King Solomon said to his mother, “For what reason are you asking for Abishag the Shunammite for Adinijah? Ask for him the kingdom also, for he is my elder brother, even for him, and Abiathar the priest, and Joab son of Zeruiah!”

23. Then King Solomon swore by Jehovah saying, “Thus God do so to me, thus even adding to it, for Adonijah has spoken this word against his own soul.

24.Now then, as Jehovah lives, who established me and set me on the throne of my father David, and who made for me a house, just as he spoke, surely Adonijah will be put to death this day!”

25. And King Solomon sent by the hand of Benaiah son of Jehoiada, and he fell upon him and he died.

26. Then the King said to Abiathar the priest, “Go to your fields at Anathoth, for you are a man worthy of death, but I will not put you to death on this day because you carried the ark of the Lord Jehovah before David , my father, and because you were afflicted in all that my father was afflicted.”

27. So Solomon drove out Abiathar from being priest to the Lord, to fulfill the word that He spoke concerning the house of Eli in Shiloh.

28. And the report came to Joab, for he had turned after Adonijah, although he had not turned after Absolom. Then Joab fled to the tent of the Lord and held firm to the horns of the altar.

29. And it was reported to King Solomon that Joab had fled to the tent of the Lord, and, “Behold, he is beside the altar.” Then Solomon sent Benaiah, son of Jehoiada saying, “Go fall on him!”

30. So Benaiah went in to the tent of the Lord and said to him, “Thus says the King, ‘Come out!’ and he said, “No, for I will die here.” There fore, Benaiah brought the king word saying, “Thus said Joab, and thus he answered me.”

31. Then the King said to him, “Do as he has said and fall on him, then bury him, that you may remove the blood from me, and the house of my father which Joab shed without cause.

32. And the Lord will return his blood upon his own head, who fell upon two men more just and better than him: Abner, son of Ner, captain of the army of Israel, and Amasa, son of Jether, captain of the army of Judah, and slew them with the sword. And my father David knew nothing about it.

33.so, their blood will return on the head of Joab and upon his seed forever. But for David and for his seed, and for his house, and for his throne, there will be peace forever with the Lord.”

34. Then Benaiah, son of Jehoiada went up and fell on him, and he died, and he was buried in his house in the wilderness.

35. And the King put Benaiah, son of Jehoiada in his place over the army, and Zadok the priest, the King put in the place of Abiathar.

36. And the King sent and called for Shimei, and he said to him, “Buid a house for yourself in Jerusalem and remain there, and do not go out from there or anywhere!

37.For on the day that you go out and cross over the brook Kidron, know for sure that you will certainly die. Your blood will be on your own head!”

38. Then Shimei said to the king, “The saying is agreeable. Thus, your servant will do as my lord the King has spoken,” And Shimei dwelled in Jerusalem many days.

39. But, it came to pass, at the end of three years, two servants of Shimei fled to Achish, son of Maachah, king of Gath, and they told Shimei saying, “Behold, your servants are in Gath.”

40. Then Shimei rose up and bound his donkey and departed for Gath, to Achish in order to seek his servants. Then Shimei went and brought his servants from Gath.

41. And it was reported to Solomon that Shimei had gone from Jerusalem to Gath, but he has returned.

42. And the King sent and called for Shimei. Then he said to him, “Did I not cause you to swear by Jehovah, and I bore witness against you saying, ‘On the day you go out, or go anywhere abroad, know for certain that you will certainly die!’ And you said, ‘The saying I have heard is agreeable.’

43.Therefore, for what reason have you not kept the oath of Jehovah, and the commandment that I commanded you?”

44. The King also said, “You are aware of all the evil that your heart has known which you have done to my father David, therefore, Jehovah will return your evil upon your own head!”

45. (But King Solomon will be blessed, and David’s throne will be established before Jehovah forever.)

46. Then the King gave charge to Benaiah, son of Jehioada, and he went forth and fell upon him and he died. And the kingdom was established by the hand of Solomon.

(Tom & Suzi)

1. And Solomon made an alliance with Pharaoh, King of Egypt, and took the daughter of Pharaoh. Then he brought her to the city of David, until he had completed building his house, and the house of the Lord, and the wall around Jerusalem.

2. The people were sacrificing in the high places only because a house unto the name of the Lord had not been built, until those days.

3. And Solomon loved the Lord, walking in the statues of his father David, but he sacrificed and burned incense only in the high places.

4. Now the king went to Gibeon to sacrifice there, for it was the great high place. There Solomon offered one-thousand burnt offerings upon that altar.

5. The Lord appeared to Solomon in Gibeon in a dream by night, and God said, “Ask what I shall give you!”

6. Then Solomon said, “You put forth great kindness with your servant David, my father, as he walked before you in faithfulness, and righteousness, even uprightness of heart. And with this great kindness you kept him, and you have given him a son to sit on his throne as it is this day.

7. And now, O Lord my God, you have made your servant to reign instead of David, my father, but I am yet a young child. I do not know how to go out or come in,

8.and your servant is in the midst of your people whom you have chosen, even a great people that cannot be numbered nor counted for multitude.

9. So, give to your servant an understanding heart to judge your people, in order to discern between good and evil because who is able to govern this massive number of people of yours?”

10. And the word was pleasing in the eyes of the Lord because Solomon had asked this thing.

11. Then God said to him, “Because you have asked this thing and have not asked for yourself long life, nor have you asked for yourself riches, nor have you asked for the life of your enemies; but you have asked for yourself discernment to understand justice.

12. Behold! I have done according to your words. Lo, I have given you a wise and understanding heart, so that none like you have been before, nor after you will any arise like you.

13. Moreover, I have also given to you that which you have not asked for, both riches and honor. So that there will not be any like you among the kings all your days.

14. And if you walk in my ways and keep my statutes and my commandments, as your father David walked, then I will prolong your days.”

15. And Solomon awoke, and behold, it was a dream. And Solomon went to Jerusalem and stood before the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord, and offered up burnt offerings, and he made peace offerings. Then he mad a feast for all his servants.

16. Then two women, who were harlots, came in unto the king, and stood before him.

17. And the one woman said, “O my lord! This woman and I live in one house, and I gave birth to a child, with her in the house.

18. And so it happened on the third day after I gave birth, this woman also bore a child, and we were together, no stranger was with us in the house, only we two in the house.

19. Then this woman’s son died during the night because she lay upon him.

20. And she arose in the middle of the night and took my son from beside me while your maid-servant was asleep. She then laid him on her bosom, and laid her dead son on my bosom.

21. When I arose in the morning to nurse my son, behold, he was dead; but that morning I diligently considered what had happened, and behold, he was not my son whom I bore!”

22. Then the other woman said, “No! For my son is alive, and your son is dead!” And this one said, “No! For the dead child is yours, and my son is alive!” Thus they spoke before the king.

23. Then the king said, “This one is saying, ‘This is my son, the living one, and your son is the dead one. Yet, this one is saying, ‘No, for your son is the dead one, and my son is alive’.

24. Take a sword for me!” And they brought the sword before the king.

25. Then the king said, “Divide the living boy in two, then give half to one and half to the other.

26. And the woman whose son was alive spoke to the king, for her heart (womb) was moved with compassion toward her son, and she said, “O my lord! Give the living child to her, and please do not put him to death!” But the other one said, “He will be neither mine nor yours. Cut him in two!”

27. Then the king responded and said, “Give the living child to her, and by no means put him to death. She is his mother.”

28. And all Israel heard of the judgment by which the king had judged, and they feared before the king because they saw that the wisdom of God was in him to execute judgment.

Chapter 4

(Tom & Suzi)

1. And, king Solomon was king over all Israel.

2. And these were the chief officials whom he had: Azariah son of Zadok the priest,

3.Elihoreph and Ahiah sons of Shisha, scribes, Jehoshaphat son of Ahilud, the recorder,

4.and Benaiah son of Jehoiada was over the army, and Zadok and Abiathar were priests,

5.and Azariah son of Nathan who was appointed over the officers, and Zabud son of Nathan, chief ruler, was friend of the king,

6.and Ahishar was over the household, and Adoniram son of Abda was over the task-work.

7. And twelve officers were appointed by Solomon over all Israel and they provided food for the king and his house. Each man made provision one month during the year.

8. Now these are their names: Ben-Hur in Mount Ephraim,

9.Ben-Dekar in Makaz (or Maktz) and in Shaalbim, and in Beth-Shemesh, and Elon- Beth-Hanan,

10.Ben-Hesed in Aruboth (or Arubboth), to him was Sochoh and all the land of Hepher,

11.Ben-Abinadab in all the height of Dor. (Taphath, daughter of Solomon became his wife),

12.Baana son of Ahilud had Taanach and Megiddo, and all Beth-Shean which is beside Zartanah from beneath Jezreel, from Beth-Shean to Able-Meholah from beyond Jokneam (or Jokmeam),

13.Ben-Geber in Ramoth-Gilead had the tent-villages of Jair, son of Manasseh which are in Gilead. He also had the region of Argob that is in Bashan sixty great cities with walls and a bronze bar,

14.Ahinadab son of Iddo had Mahanaim,

15.Ahimaaz was in Naphtali, he also took Basemath daughter of Solomon for a wife,

16.Baana son of Hushai was in Asher and in Aloth,

17.Jehoshaphat son of Paruah was in Issachar,

18.Shimei son of Ela was in Benjamin,

19.Geber son of Uri was in the land of Gilead, territory of Sihon king of the Amorites and Og king of Bashan, (and he was the only prefect that was in the land.)

20. Judah and Israel were numerous as the sand that is by the sea is in abundance, eating and drinking, and they were joyful.

21. And so it was that Solomon reigned over all the kingdoms from the River, to the land of the Philistines, and even to the border of Egypt. They brought tribute, and served Solomon all the days of his life.

22. And Solomon’s food supply for one day was thirty measures of fine flour and sixty measures of meal,

23.ten fat oxen, twenty cattle out of the pasture, and one hundred sheep, besides deer and gazelle, a roebuck, and fattened geese,

24.for he had dominion over all the region beside the River from Tiphsah even unto Gaza, over all the kings on beyond the River. And he had peace around him on all sides.

25. Therefore, Judah and Israel lived securely, each man beneath his vine and beneath his fig tree, from Dan even to Beersheba all the days of Solomon.

26. And Solomon had forty-thousand stalls of horses for his chariots, and twelve-thousand horsemen.

27. And those appointed provided food to Solomon the king, and all that approached unto King’s Solomon’s table, each man in his month. They lacked nothing.

28. They also brought barley and straw for horses and steeds to the place where they were required, each man according to his manner.

29. And God gave to Solomon very great wisdom and understanding and breadth of heart, as the sand that is on the edge of the sea.

30. Therefore, Solomon’s wisdom became greater than all the sons of the east and even than all the wisdom of Egypt.

31. And he was wiser than all mankind, even than Ethan the Ezrahite, and Heman, and Chalcol, and Darda, sons of Mahol. And his name was known in all the nations round about.

32. Moreover, he spoke three-thousand proverbs and the songs which he had were a thousand and five.

33. And he spoke concerning the trees; from the cedar that is in Lebanon; and unto hyssop that comes forth from the wall; and he spoke concerning the beast; and concerning the fowl; and concerning the creeping thing; and concerning the fish.

34. So, they came form all nations to hear the wisdom of Solomon, from all kings of the earth which heard of his wisdom.
