(K.J.V. Strong’s Numbers) .

11-1:1      Now king4428 David1732 was old2204 and stricken935 in years;3117 and they covered3680 him with clothes,899 but he got no heat.3808, 3179 

11-1:2      Wherefore his servants5650 said559 unto him, Let there be sought1245 for my lord113 the king4428 a young5291 virgin:1330 and let her stand5975 before6440 the king,4428 and let her cherish5532 him, and let her lie7901 in thy bosom,2436 that my lord113 the king4428 may get heat.2552 

11-1:3      So they sought1245 for a fair3303 damsel5291 throughout all3605 the coasts1366 of Israel,3478 and found4672 (853) Abishag49 a Shunammite,7767 and brought935 her to the king.4428 

11-1:4      And the damsel5291 was very5704, 3966 fair,3303 and cherished5532 the king,4428 and ministered8334 to him: but the king4428 knew3045 her not.3808 

11-1:5      Then Adonijah138 the son1121 of Haggith2294 exalted himself,4984 saying,559 I589 will be king:4427 and he prepared6213 him chariots7393 and horsemen,6571 and fifty2572 men376 to run7323 before6440 him. 

11-1:6      And his father1 had not3808 displeased6087 him at any time4480, 3117 in saying,559 Why4069 hast thou done6213 so?3602 and he1931 also1571 was a very3966 goodly2896, 8389 man; and his mother bore3205 him after310 Absalom.53 

11-1:7      And he conferred1697 with5973 Joab3097 the son1121 of Zeruiah,6870 and with5973 Abiathar54 the priest:3548 and they following310 Adonijah138 helped5826 him. 

11-1:8      But Zadok6659 the priest,3548 and Benaiah1141 the son1121 of Jehoiada,3077 and Nathan5416 the prophet,5030 and Shimei,8096 and Rei,7472 and the mighty men1368 which834 belonged to David,1732 were1961 not3808 with5973 Adonijah.138 

11-1:9      And Adonijah138 slew2076 sheep6629 and oxen1241 and fat cattle4806 by5973 the stone68 of Zoheleth,2120 which834 is by681 En-rogel,5883 and called7121 (853) all3605 his brethren251 the king's4428 sons,1121 and all3605 the men376 of Judah3063 the king's4428 servants:5650 

11-1:10     But Nathan5416 the prophet,5030 and Benaiah,1141 and the mighty men,1368 and Solomon8010 his brother,251 he called7121 not.3808 

11-1:11     Wherefore Nathan5416 spoke559 unto413 Bath-sheba1339 the mother517 of Solomon,8010 saying,559 Hast thou not3808 heard8085 that3588 Adonijah138 the son1121 of Haggith2294 doth reign,4427 and David1732 our lord113 knoweth3045 it not?3808 

11-1:12     Now6258 therefore come,1980 let me, I pray thee,4994 give3289 thee counsel,6098 that thou mayest save4422 (853) thine own life,5315 and the life5315 of thy son1121 Solomon.8010 

11-1:13     Go1980 and get thee in935 unto413 king4428 David,1732 and say559 unto413 him, Didst not3808 thou,859 my lord,113 O king,4428 swear7650 unto thine handmaid,519 saying,559 Assuredly3588 Solomon8010 thy son1121 shall reign4427 after310 me, and he1931 shall sit3427 upon5921 my throne?3678 why4069 then doth Adonijah138 reign?4427 

11-1:14     Behold,2009 while thou yet5750 talkest1696 there8033 with5973 the king,4428 I589 also will come in935 after310 thee, and confirm4390 (853) thy words.1697 

11-1:15     And Bath-sheba1339 went in935 unto413 the king4428 into the chamber:2315 and the king4428 was very3966 old;2204 and Abishag49 the Shunammite7767 ministered unto8334 (853) the king.4428 

11-1:16     And Bath-sheba1339 bowed,6915 and did obeisance7812 unto the king.4428 And the king4428 said,559 What4100 wouldest thou? 

11-1:17     And she said559 unto him, My lord,113 thou859 swarest7650 by the LORD3068 thy God430 unto thine handmaid,519 saying, Assuredly3588 Solomon8010 thy son1121 shall reign4427 after310 me, and he1931 shall sit3427 upon5921 my throne.3678 

11-1:18     And now,6258 behold,2009 Adonijah138 reigneth;4427 and now,6258 my lord113 the king,4428 thou knowest3045 it not:3808 

11-1:19     And he hath slain2076 oxen7794 and fat cattle4806 and sheep6629 in abundance,7230 and hath called7121 all3605 the sons1121 of the king,4428 and Abiathar54 the priest,3548 and Joab3097 the captain8269 of the host:6635 but Solomon8010 thy servant5650 hath he not3808 called.7121 

11-1:20     And thou,859 my lord,113 O king,4428 the eyes5869 of all3605 Israel3478 are upon5921 thee, that thou shouldest tell5046 them who4310 shall sit3427 on5921 the throne3678 of my lord113 the king4428 after310 him. 

11-1:21     Otherwise it shall come to pass,1961 when my lord113 the king4428 shall sleep7901 with5973 his fathers,1 that I589 and my son1121 Solomon8010 shall be counted1961 offenders.2400 

11-1:22     And, lo,2009 while she yet5750 talked1696 with5973 the king,4428 Nathan5416 the prophet5030 also came in.935 

11-1:23     And they told5046 the king,4428 saying,559 Behold2009 Nathan5416 the prophet.5030 And when he was come in935 before6440 the king,4428 he bowed himself7812 before the king4428 with5921 his face639 to the ground.776 

11-1:24     And Nathan5416 said,559 My lord,113 O king,4428 hast thou859 said,559 Adonijah138 shall reign4427 after310 me, and he1931 shall sit3427 upon5921 my throne?3678 

11-1:25     For3588 he is gone down3381 this day,3117 and hath slain2076 oxen7794 and fat cattle4806 and sheep6629 in abundance,7230 and hath called7121 all3605 the king's4428 sons,1121 and the captains8269 of the host,6635 and Abiathar54 the priest;3548 and, behold,2009 they eat398 and drink8354 before6440 him, and say,559 God save2421 king4428 Adonijah.138 

11-1:26     But me, even me589 thy servant,5650 and Zadok6659 the priest,3548 and Benaiah1141 the son1121 of Jehoiada,3077 and thy servant5650 Solomon,8010 hath he not3808 called.7121 

11-1:27     Is this2088 thing1697 done1961 by4480, 854 my lord113 the king,4428 and thou hast not3808 showed it unto3045 (853) thy servant,5650 who4310 should sit3427 on5921 the throne3678 of my lord113 the king4428 after310 him? 

11-1:28     Then king4428 David1732 answered6030 and said,559 Call7121 me Bath-sheba.1339 And she came into935 the king's4428 presence,6440 and stood5975 before6440 the king.4428 

11-1:29     And the king4428 swore,7650 and said,559 As the LORD3068 liveth,2416 that834 hath redeemed6299 (853) my soul5315 out of all4480, 3605 distress,6869 

11-1:30     Even3588 as834 I swore7650 unto thee by the LORD3068 God430 of Israel,3478 saying,559 Assuredly3588 Solomon8010 thy son1121 shall reign4427 after310 me, and he1931 shall sit3427 upon5921 my throne3678 in my stead;8478 even3588 so3651 will I certainly do6213 this2088 day.3117 

11-1:31     Then Bath-sheba1339 bowed6915 with her face639 to the earth,776 and did reverence7812 to the king,4428 and said,559 Let my lord113 king4428 David1732 live2421 forever.5769 

11-1:32     And king4428 David1732 said,559 Call7121 me Zadok6659 the priest,3548 and Nathan5416 the prophet,5030 and Benaiah1141 the son1121 of Jehoiada.3077 And they came935 before6440 the king.4428 

11-1:33     The king4428 also said559 unto them, Take3947 with5973 you (853) the servants5650 of your lord,113 and cause (853) Solomon8010 my son1121 to ride7392 upon5921 mine own mule,6506 and bring him down3381, (853) to413 Gihon:1521 

11-1:34     And let Zadok6659 the priest3548 and Nathan5416 the prophet5030 anoint4886 him there8033 king4428 over5921 Israel:3478 and blow8628 ye with the trumpet,7782 and say,559 God save2421 king4428 Solomon.8010 

11-1:35     Then ye shall come up5927 after310 him, that he may come935 and sit3427 upon5921 my throne;3678 for he1931 shall be king4427 in my stead:8478 and I have appointed6680 him to be1961 ruler5057 over5921 Israel3478 and over5921 Judah.3063 

11-1:36     And Benaiah1141 the son1121 of Jehoiada3077 answered6030 (853) the king,4428 and said,559 Amen:543 the LORD3068 God430 of my lord113 the king4428 say559 so3651 too. 

11-1:37     As834 the LORD3068 hath been1961 with5973 my lord113 the king,4428 even so3651 be1961 he with5973 Solomon,8010 and make his throne greater1431, (853), 3678 than the throne4480, 3678 of my lord113 king4428 David.1732 

11-1:38     So Zadok6659 the priest,3548 and Nathan5416 the prophet,5030 and Benaiah1141 the son1121 of Jehoiada,3077 and the Cherethites,3774 and the Pelethites,6432 went down,3381 and caused (853) Solomon8010 to ride7392 upon5921 king4428 David's1732 mule,6506 and brought1980 him to5921 Gihon.1521 

11-1:39     And Zadok6659 the priest3548 took3947 (853) a horn7161 of oil8081 out of4480 the tabernacle,168 and anointed4886 (853) Solomon.8010 And they blew8628 the trumpet;7782 and all3605 the people5971 said,559 God save2421 king4428 Solomon.8010 

11-1:40     And all3605 the people5971 came up5927 after310 him, and the people5971 piped2490 with pipes,2485 and rejoiced8056 with great1419 joy,8057 so that the earth776 rent1234 with the sound6963 of them. 

11-1:41     And Adonijah138 and all3605 the guests7121 that834 were with854 him heard8085 it as they1992 had made an end3615 of eating.398 And when Joab3097 heard8085 (853) the sound6963 of the trumpet,7782 he said,559 Wherefore4069 is this noise6963 of the city7151 being in an uproar?1993 

11-1:42     And while he yet5750 spoke,1696 behold,2009 Jonathan3129 the son1121 of Abiathar54 the priest3548 came:935 and Adonijah138 said559 unto him, Come in;935 for3588 thou859 art a valiant2428 man,376 and bringest good tidings.2896, 1319 

11-1:43     And Jonathan3129 answered6030 and said559 to Adonijah,138 Verily61 our lord113 king4428 David1732 hath made Solomon king.4427, (853), 8010 

11-1:44     And the king4428 hath sent7971 with854 him (853) Zadok6659 the priest,3548 and Nathan5416 the prophet,5030 and Benaiah1141 the son1121 of Jehoiada,3077 and the Cherethites,3774 and the Pelethites,6432 and they have caused him to ride7392, (853) upon5921 the king's4428 mule:6506 

11-1:45     And Zadok6659 the priest3548 and Nathan5416 the prophet5030 have anointed4886 him king4428 in Gihon:1521 and they are come up5927 from thence4480, 8033 rejoicing,8056 so that the city7151 rang1949 again. This1931 is the noise6963 that834 ye have heard.8085 

11-1:46     And also1571 Solomon8010 sitteth3427 on5921 the throne3678 of the kingdom.4410 

11-1:47     And moreover1571 the king's4428 servants5650 came935 to bless1288 (853) our lord113 king4428 David,1732 saying,559 God430 make (853) the name8034 of Solomon8010 better3190 than thy name,4480, 8034 and make (853) his throne3678 greater1431 than thy throne.4480, 3678 And the king4428 bowed himself7812 upon5921 the bed.4904 

11-1:48     And also1571 thus3602 said559 the king,4428 Blessed1288 be the LORD3068 God430 of Israel,3478 which834 hath given5414 one to sit3427 on5921 my throne3678 this day,3117 mine eyes5869 even seeing7200 it. 

11-1:49     And all3605 the guests7121 that834 were with Adonijah138 were afraid,2729 and rose up,6965 and went1980 every man376 his way.1870 

11-1:50     And Adonijah138 feared3372 because4480, 6440 of Solomon,8010 and arose,6965 and went,1980 and caught hold2388 on the horns7161 of the altar.4196 

11-1:51     And it was told5046 Solomon,8010 saying,559 Behold,2009 Adonijah138 feareth3372 (853) king4428 Solomon:8010 for, lo,2009 he hath caught hold270 on the horns7161 of the altar,4196 saying,559 Let king4428 Solomon8010 swear7650 unto me today3117 that he will not518 slay4191 (853) his servant5650 with the sword.2719 

11-1:52     And Solomon8010 said,559 If518 he will show1961 himself a worthy2428 man,1121 there shall not3808 a hair of4480, 8183 him fall5307 to the earth:776 but if518 wickedness7451 shall be found4672 in him, he shall die.4191 

11-1:53     So king4428 Solomon8010 sent,7971 and they brought him down3381 from4480, 5921 the altar.4196 And he came935 and bowed himself7812 to king4428 Solomon:8010 and Solomon8010 said559 unto him, Go1980 to thine house.1004

(K.J.V. Strong’s Numbers) .

11-2:1      Now the days3117 of David1732 drew nigh7126 that he should die;4191 and he charged6680 (853) Solomon8010 his son,1121 saying,559 

11-2:2      I595 go1980 the way1870 of all3605 the earth:776 be thou strong2388 therefore, and show1961 thyself a man;376 

11-2:3      And keep8104 (853) the charge4931 of the LORD3068 thy God,430 to walk1980 in his ways,1870 to keep8104 his statutes,2708 and his commandments,4687 and his judgments,4941 and his testimonies,5715 as it is written3789 in (853) the law8451 of Moses,4872 that4616 thou mayest prosper7919 in all3605 that834 thou doest,6213 and whithersoever3605, 834, 8033 thou turnest6437 thyself: 

11-2:4      That4616 the LORD3068 may continue6965 (853) his word1697 which834 he spoke1696 concerning5921 me, saying,559 If518 thy children1121 take heed8104 to (853) their way,1870 to walk1980 before6440 me in truth571 with all3605 their heart3824 and with all3605 their soul,5315 there shall not3808 fail3772 thee (said559 he) a man376 on4480, 5921 the throne3678 of Israel.3478 

11-2:5      Moreover1571 thou859 knowest3045 also (853) what834 Joab3097 the son1121 of Zeruiah6870 did6213 to me, and what834 he did6213 to the two8147 captains8269 of the hosts6635 of Israel,3478 unto Abner74 the son1121 of Ner,5369 and unto Amasa6021 the son1121 of Jether,3500 whom he slew,2026 and shed7760 the blood1818 of war4421 in peace,7965 and put5414 the blood1818 of war4421 upon his girdle2290 that834 was about his loins,4975 and in his shoes5275 that834 were on his feet.7272 

11-2:6      Do6213 therefore according to thy wisdom,2451 and let not3808 his hoar head7872 go down3381 to the grave7585 in peace.7965 

11-2:7      But show6213 kindness2617 unto the sons1121 of Barzillai1271 the Gileadite,1569 and let them be1961 of those that eat398 at thy table:7979 for3588 so3651 they came7126 to413 me when I fled1272 because4480, 6440 of Absalom53 thy brother.251 

11-2:8      And, behold,2009 thou hast with5973 thee Shimei8096 the son1121 of Gera,1617 a Benjamite1145 of Bahurim,4480, 980 which1931 cursed7043 me with a grievous4834 curse7045 in the day3117 when I went1980 to Mahanaim:4266 but he1931 came down3381 to meet7125 me at Jordan,3383 and I swore7650 to him by the LORD,3068 saying,559 I will not518 put thee to death4191 with the sword.2719 

11-2:9      Now6258 therefore hold him not guiltless:408, 5352 for3588 thou859 art a wise2450 man,376 and knowest3045 (853) what834 thou oughtest to do6213 unto him; but his (853) hoar head7872 bring thou down3381 to the grave7585 with blood.1818 

11-2:10     So David1732 slept7901 with5973 his fathers,1 and was buried6912 in the city5892 of David.1732 

11-2:11     And the days3117 that834 David1732 reigned4427 over5921 Israel3478 were forty705 years:8141 seven7651 years8141 reigned4427 he in Hebron,2275 and thirty7970 and three7969 years8141 reigned4427 he in Jerusalem.3389 

11-2:12     Then sat3427 Solomon8010 upon5921 the throne3678 of David1732 his father;1 and his kingdom4438 was established3559 greatly.3966 

11-2:13     And Adonijah138 the son1121 of Haggith2294 came935 to413 Bath-sheba1339 the mother517 of Solomon.8010 And she said,559 Comest935 thou peaceably?7965 And he said,559 Peaceably.7965 

11-2:14     He said559 moreover, I have somewhat to say1697 unto413 thee. And she said,559 Say on.1696 

11-2:15     And he said,559 Thou859 knowest3045 that3588 the kingdom4410 was1961 mine, and that all3605 Israel3478 set7760 their faces6440 on5921 me, that I should reign:4427 howbeit the kingdom4410 is turned about,5437 and is become1961 my brother's:251 for3588 it was1961 his from the LORD.4480, 3068 

11-2:16     And now6258 I595 ask7592 one259 petition7596 of4480, 854 thee, deny7725, (853), 6440 me not.408 And she said559 unto413 him, Say on.1696 

11-2:17     And he said,559 Speak,559 I pray thee,4994 unto Solomon8010 the king,4428 (for3588 he will not3808 say thee nay,)7725, (853), 6440 that he give5414 me (853) Abishag49 the Shunammite7767 to wife.802 

11-2:18     And Bath-sheba1339 said,559 Well;2896 I595 will speak1696 for5921 thee unto413 the king.4428 

11-2:19     Bath-sheba1339 therefore went935 unto413 king4428 Solomon,8010 to speak1696 unto him for5921 Adonijah.138 And the king4428 rose up6965 to meet7122 her, and bowed himself7812 unto her, and sat down3427 on5921 his throne,3678 and caused a seat3678 to be set7760 for the king's4428 mother;517 and she sat3427 on his right hand.3225 

11-2:20     Then she said,559 I595 desire7592 one259 small6996 petition7596 of4480 thee; I pray thee, say me not nay.408, 7725, (853), 6440 And the king4428 said559 unto her, Ask on,7592 my mother:517 for3588 I will not3808 say thee nay.7725, (853), 6440 

11-2:21     And she said,559 Let (853) Abishag49 the Shunammite7767 be given5414 to Adonijah138 thy brother251 to wife.802 

11-2:22     And king4428 Solomon8010 answered6030 and said559 unto his mother,517 And why4100 dost thou859 ask7592 (853) Abishag49 the Shunammite7767 for Adonijah?138 ask7592 for him (853) the kingdom4410 also; for3588 he1931 is mine4480 elder1419 brother;251 even for him, and for Abiathar54 the priest,3548 and for Joab3097 the son1121 of Zeruiah.6870 

11-2:23     Then king4428 Solomon8010 swore7650 by the LORD,3068 saying,559 God430 do6213 so3541 to me, and more3254 also,3541 if3588 Adonijah138 have not spoken1696 (853) this2088 word1697 against his own life.5315 

11-2:24     Now6258 therefore, as the LORD3068 liveth,2416 which834 hath established3559 me, and set3427 me on5921 the throne3678 of David1732 my father,1 and who834 hath made6213 me a house,1004 as834 he promised,1696 Adonijah138 shall be put to death4191 this day.3117 

11-2:25     And king4428 Solomon8010 sent7971 by the hand3027 of Benaiah1141 the son1121 of Jehoiada;3077 and he fell6293 upon him that he died.4191 

11-2:26     And unto Abiathar54 the priest3548 said559 the king,4428 Get1980 thee to Anathoth,6068 unto5921 thine own fields;7704 for3588 thou859 art worthy376 of death:4194 but I will not3808 at this2088 time3117 put thee to death,4191 because3588 thou didst bear5375 (853) the ark727 of the Lord136 GOD3068 before6440 David1732 my father,1 and because3588 thou hast been afflicted6031 in all3605 wherein834 my father1 was afflicted.6031 

11-2:27     So Solomon8010 thrust out1644 (853) Abiathar54 from being4480, 1961 priest3548 unto the LORD;3068 that he might fulfill4390 (853) the word1697 of the LORD,3068 which834 he spoke1696 concerning5921 the house1004 of Eli5941 in Shiloh.7887 

11-2:28     Then tidings8052 came935 to5704 Joab:3097 for3588 Joab3097 had turned5186 after310 Adonijah,138 though he turned5186 not3808 after310 Absalom.53 And Joab3097 fled5127 unto413 the tabernacle168 of the LORD,3068 and caught hold2388 on the horns7161 of the altar.4196 

11-2:29     And it was told5046 king4428 Solomon8010 that3588 Joab3097 was fled5127 unto413 the tabernacle168 of the LORD;3068 and, behold,2009 he is by681 the altar.4196 Then Solomon8010 sent7971 (853) Benaiah1141 the son1121 of Jehoiada,3077 saying,559 Go,1980 fall6293 upon him. 

11-2:30     And Benaiah1141 came935 to413 the tabernacle168 of the LORD,3068 and said559 unto413 him, Thus3541 saith559 the king,4428 Come forth.3318 And he said,559 Nay;3808 but3588 I will die4191 here.6311 And Benaiah1141 brought7725 (853) the king4428 word1697 again, saying,559 Thus3541 said1696 Joab,3097 and thus3541 he answered6030 me. 

11-2:31     And the king4428 said559 unto him, Do6213 as834 he hath said,1696 and fall6293 upon him, and bury6912 him; that thou mayest take away5493 the innocent2600 blood,1818 which834 Joab3097 shed,8210 from4480, 5921 me, and from4480, 5921 the house1004 of my father.1 

11-2:32     And the LORD3068 shall return7725 (853) his blood1818 upon5921 his own head,7218 who834 fell6293 upon two8147 men376 more righteous6662 and better2896 than4480 he, and slew2026 them with the sword,2719 my father1 David1732 not3808 knowing3045 thereof, to wit, (853) Abner74 the son1121 of Ner,5369 captain8269 of the host6635 of Israel,3478 and Amasa6021 the son1121 of Jether,3500 captain8269 of the host6635 of Judah.3063 

11-2:33     Their blood1818 shall therefore return7725 upon the head7218 of Joab,3097 and upon the head7218 of his seed2233 forever:5769 but upon David,1732 and upon his seed,2233 and upon his house,1004 and upon his throne,3678 shall there be1961 peace7965 forever5704, 5769 from4480, 5973 the LORD.3068 

11-2:34     So Benaiah1141 the son1121 of Jehoiada3077 went up,5927 and fell6293 upon him, and slew4191 him: and he was buried6912 in his own house1004 in the wilderness.4057 

11-2:35     And the king4428 put5414 (853) Benaiah1141 the son1121 of Jehoiada3077 in his room8478 over5921 the host:6635 and Zadok6659 the priest3548 did the king4428 put5414 in the room8478 of Abiathar.54 

11-2:36     And the king4428 sent7971 and called7121 for Shimei,8096 and said559 unto him, Build1129 thee a house1004 in Jerusalem,3389 and dwell3427 there,8033 and go not forth3808, 3318 thence4480, 8033 any575 whither.575 

11-2:37     For it shall be,1961 that on the day3117 thou goest out,3318 and passest over5674 (853) the brook5158 Kidron,6939 thou shalt know3045 for certain3045 that3588 thou shalt surely die:4191, 4191 thy blood1818 shall be1961 upon thine own head.7218 

11-2:38     And Shimei8096 said559 unto the king,4428 The saying1697 is good:2896 as834 my lord113 the king4428 hath said,1696 so3651 will thy servant5650 do.6213 And Shimei8096 dwelt3427 in Jerusalem3389 many7227 days.3117 

11-2:39     And it came to pass1961 at the end4480, 7093 of three7969 years,8141 that two8147 of the servants5650 of Shimei8096 ran away1272 unto413 Achish397 son1121 of Maachah4601 king4428 of Gath.1661 And they told5046 Shimei,8096 saying,559 Behold,2009 thy servants5650 be in Gath.1661 

11-2:40     And Shimei8096 arose,6965 and saddled2280 (853) his ass,2543 and went1980 to Gath1661 to413 Achish397 to seek1245 (853) his servants:5650 and Shimei8096 went,1980 and brought935 (853) his servants5650 from Gath.4480, 1661 

11-2:41     And it was told5046 Solomon8010 that3588 Shimei8096 had gone1980 from Jerusalem4480, 3389 to Gath,1661 and was come again.7725 

11-2:42     And the king4428 sent7971 and called7121 for Shimei,8096 and said559 unto413 him, Did I not3808 make thee to swear7650 by the LORD,3068 and protested5749 unto thee, saying,559 Know for a certain,3045, 3045 on the day3117 thou goest out,3318 and walkest abroad1980 any575 whither,575 that3588 thou shalt surely die?4191, 4191 and thou saidst559 unto413 me, The word1697 that I have heard8085 is good.2896 

11-2:43     Why4069 then hast thou not3808 kept8104 (853) the oath7621 of the LORD,3068 and the commandment4687 that834 I have charged6680 thee5921 with? 

11-2:44     The king4428 said559 moreover to413 Shimei,8096 Thou859 knowest3045 (853) all3605 the wickedness7451 which834 thine heart3824 is privy to,3045 that834 thou didst6213 to David1732 my father:1 therefore the LORD3068 shall return7725 (853) thy wickedness7451 upon thine own head;7218 

11-2:45     And king4428 Solomon8010 shall be blessed,1288 and the throne3678 of David1732 shall be1961 established3559 before6440 the LORD3068 forever.5704, 5769 

11-2:46     So the king4428 commanded6680 (853) Benaiah1141 the son1121 of Jehoiada;3077 which went out,3318 and fell6293 upon him, that he died.4191 And the kingdom4467 was established3559 in the hand3027 of Solomon.8010

11-3:1      And Solomon8010 made affinity2859 with854 Pharaoh6547 king4428 of Egypt,4714 and took3947 (853) Pharaoh's6547 daughter,1323 and brought935 her into413 the city5892 of David,1732 until5704 he had made an end3615 of building1129 (853) his own house,1004 and the house1004 of the LORD,3068 and the wall2346 of Jerusalem3389 round about.5439 

11-3:2      Only7535 the people5971 sacrificed2076 in high places,1116 because3588 there was no3808 house1004 built1129 unto the name8034 of the LORD,3068 until5704 those1992 days.3117 

11-3:3      And Solomon8010 loved157 (853) the LORD,3068 walking1980 in the statutes2708 of David1732 his father:1 only7535 he1931 sacrificed2076 and burnt incense6999 in high places.1116 

11-3:4      And the king4428 went1980 to Gibeon1391 to sacrifice2076 there;8033 for3588 that1931 was the great1419 high place:1116 a thousand505 burnt offerings5930 did Solomon8010 offer5927 upon5921 that1931 altar.4196 

11-3:5      In Gibeon1391 the LORD3068 appeared7200 to413 Solomon8010 in a dream2472 by night:3915 and God430 said,559 Ask7592 what4100 I shall give5414 thee. 

11-3:6      And Solomon8010 said,559 Thou859 hast showed6213 unto5973 thy servant5650 David1732 my father1 great1419 mercy,2617 according as834 he walked1980 before6440 thee in truth,571 and in righteousness,6666 and in uprightness3483 of heart3824 with5973 thee; and thou hast kept8104 for him (853) this2088 great1419 kindness,2617 that thou hast given5414 him a son1121 to sit3427 on5921 his throne,3678 as it is this2088 day.3117 

11-3:7      And now,6258 O LORD3068 my God,430 thou859 hast made (853) thy servant5650 king4427 instead8478 of David1732 my father:1 and I595 am but a little6996 child:5288 I know3045 not3808 how to go out3318 or come in.935 

11-3:8      And thy servant5650 is in the midst8432 of thy people5971 which834 thou hast chosen,977 a great7227 people,5971 that834 cannot3808 be numbered4487 nor3808 counted5608 for multitude.4480, 7230 

11-3:9      Give5414 therefore thy servant5650 an understanding8085 heart3820 to judge8199 (853) thy people,5971 that I may discern995 between996 good2896 and bad:7451 for3588 who4310 is able3201 to judge8199 this2088 thy so great3515 (853) a people?5971 

11-3:10     And the speech1697 pleased3190, 5869 the Lord,136 that3588 Solomon8010 had asked7592 (853) this2088 thing.1697 

11-3:11     And God430 said559 unto413 him, Because3282, 834 thou hast asked7592 (853) this2088 thing,1697 and hast not3808 asked7592 for thyself long7227 life;3117 neither3808 hast asked7592 riches6239 for thyself, nor3808 hast asked7592 the life5315 of thine enemies;341 but hast asked7592 for thyself understanding995 to discern8085 judgment;4941 

11-3:12     Behold,2009 I have done6213 according to thy words:1697 lo,2009 I have given5414 thee a wise2450 and an understanding995 heart;3820 so that834 there was1961 none3808 like thee3644 before6440 thee, neither3808 after310 thee shall any arise6965 like unto thee.3644 

11-3:13     And I have also1571 given5414 thee that which834 thou hast not3808 asked,7592 both1571 riches,6239 and1571 honor:3519 so that834 there shall not3808 be1961 any376 among the kings4428 like unto thee3644 all3605 thy days.3117 

11-3:14     And if518 thou wilt walk1980 in my ways,1870 to keep8104 my statutes2706 and my commandments,4687 as834 thy father1 David1732 did walk,1980 then I will lengthen748 (853) thy days.3117 

11-3:15     And Solomon8010 awoke;3364 and, behold,2009 it was a dream.2472 And he came935 to Jerusalem,3389 and stood5975 before6440 the ark727 of the covenant1285 of the LORD,136 and offered up5927 burnt offerings,5930 and offered6213 peace offerings,8002 and made6213 a feast4960 to all3605 his servants.5650 

11-3:16     Then227 came935 there two8147 women,802 that were harlots,2181 unto413 the king,4428 and stood5975 before6440 him. 

11-3:17     And the one259 woman802 said,559 O994 my lord,113 I589 and this2063 woman802 dwell3427 in one259 house;1004 and I was delivered of a child3205 with5973 her in the house.1004 

11-3:18     And it came to pass1961 the third7992 day3117 after that I was delivered,3205 that this2063 woman802 was delivered3205 also:1571 and we587 were together;3162 there was no369 stranger2114 with854 us in the house,1004 save2108 we587 two8147 in the house.1004 

11-3:19     And this2063 woman's802 child1121 died4191 in the night;3915 because834 she overlaid7901, 5921 it. 

11-3:20     And she arose6965 at midnight,8432, 3915 and took3947 (853) my son1121 from beside4480, 681 me, while thine handmaid519 slept,3463 and laid7901 it in her bosom,2436 and laid7901 her dead4191 child1121 in my bosom.2436 

11-3:21     And when I rose6965 in the morning1242 to give my child suck,3242, (853), 1121 behold,2009 it was dead:4191 but when I had considered995, 413 it in the morning,1242 behold,2009 it was1961 not3808 my son,1121 which834 I did bear.3205 

11-3:22     And the other312 woman802 said,559 Nay;3808 but3588 the living2416 is my son,1121 and the dead4191 is thy son.1121 And this2063 said,559 No;3808 but3588 the dead4191 is thy son,1121 and the living2416 is my son.1121 Thus they spoke1696 before6440 the king.4428 

11-3:23     Then said559 the king,4428 The one2063 saith,559 This2088 is my son1121 that liveth,2416 and thy son1121 is the dead:4191 and the other2063 saith,559 Nay;3808 but3588 thy son1121 is the dead,4191 and my son1121 is the living.2416 

11-3:24     And the king4428 said,559 Bring3947 me a sword.2719 And they brought935 a sword2719 before6440 the king.4428 

11-3:25     And the king4428 said,559 Divide1504 (853) the living2416 child3206 in two,8147 and give5414 (853) half2677 to the one,259 and half2677 to the other.259 

11-3:26     Then spoke559 the woman802 whose834 the living2416 child1121 was unto413 the king,4428 for3588 her bowels7356 yearned3648 upon5921 her son,1121 and she said,559 O994 my lord,113 give5414 her (853) the living2416 child,3205 and in no408 wise slay4191, 4191 it. But the other2063 said,559 Let it be1961 neither1571, 3808 mine nor1571 thine, but divide1504 it. 

11-3:27     Then the king4428 answered6030 and said,559 Give5414 her (853) the living2416 child,3205 and in no3808 wise slay4191, 4191 it: she1931 is the mother517 thereof. 

11-3:28     And all3605 Israel3478 heard8085 of (853) the judgment4941 which834 the king4428 had judged;8199 and they feared3372, 4480, 6440 the king:4428 for3588 they saw7200 that3588 the wisdom2451 of God430 was in him,7130 to do6213 judgment.4941
