2:1 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] ;

2:3 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:(prosper: or, do wisely)

2:4 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 (said [H559] he) a man [H376] on the throne [H3678] of Israel [H3478] .(fail: Heb. be cut off from thee from the throne)

2:5 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] .(shed: Heb. put)

2:6 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] .

2:7 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] .

2:8 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] .(grievous: Heb. strong)

2:9 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] .

2:10 So David [H1732] slept [H7901] with his fathers [H1] , and was buried [H6912] in the city [H5892] of David [H1732] .

2:11 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] .

2:12 Then sat [H3427] Solomon [H8010] upon the throne [H3678] of David [H1732] his father [H1] ; and his kingdom [H4438] was established [H3559] greatly [H3966] .

2:13 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] .

2:14 He said [H559] moreover, I have somewhat to say [H1697] unto thee. And she said [H559] , Say on [H1696] .

2:15 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] .

2:16 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] .(deny: Heb. turn not away my face)

2:17 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] .

2:18 And Bathsheba [H1339] said [H559] , Well [H2896] ; I will speak [H1696] for thee unto the king [H4428] .

2:19 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] .

2:20 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] .

2:21 And she said [H559] , Let Abishag [H49] the Shunammite [H7767] be given [H5414] to Adonijah [H138] thy brother [H251] to wife [H802] .

2:22 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] .

2:23 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] .

2:24 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] .

2:25 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] .

2:26 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] .(worthy: Heb. a man of death)

2:27 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] .

2:28 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] .

2:29 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.

2:30 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.

2:31 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] .

2:32 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] .

2:33 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] .

2:34 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] in his own house [H1004] in the wilderness [H4057] .

2:35 And the king [H4428] put [H5414] Benaiah [H1141] the son [H1121] of Jehoiada [H3077] in his room over the host [H6635] : and Zadok [H6659] the priest [H3548] did the king [H4428] put [H5414] in the room of Abiathar [H54] .

2:36 And the king [H4428] sent [H7971] and called [H7121] for Shimei [H8096] , and said [H559] unto him, Build [H1129] thee an house [H1004] in Jerusalem [H3389] , and dwell [H3427] there, and go not forth [H3318] thence any whither [H575] .

2:37 For it shall be, [that] on the day [H3117] thou goest out [H3318] , and passest over [H5674] the brook [H5158] Kidron [H6939] , thou shalt know [H3045] for certain [H3045] that thou shalt surely [H4191] die [H4191] : thy blood [H1818] shall be upon thine own head [H7218] .

2:38 And Shimei [H8096] said [H559] unto the king [H4428] , The saying [H1697] [is] good [H2896] : as my lord [H113] the king [H4428] hath said [H1696] , so will thy servant [H5650] do [H6213] . And Shimei [H8096] dwelt [H3427] in Jerusalem [H3389] many [H7227] days [H3117] .

2:39 And it came to pass at the end [H7093] of three [H7969] years [H8141] , that two [H8147] of the servants [H5650] of Shimei [H8096] ran away [H1272] unto Achish [H397] son [H1121] of Maachah [H4601] king [H4428] of Gath [H1661] . And they told [H5046] Shimei [H8096] , saying [H559] , Behold, thy servants [H5650] [be] in Gath [H1661] .

2:40 And Shimei [H8096] arose [H6965] , and saddled [H2280] his ass [H2543] , and went [H3212] to Gath [H1661] to Achish [H397] to seek [H1245] his servants [H5650] : and Shimei [H8096] went [H3212] , and brought [H935] his servants [H5650] from Gath [H1661] .

2:41 And it was told [H5046] Solomon [H8010] that Shimei [H8096] had gone [H1980] from Jerusalem [H3389] to Gath [H1661] , and was come again [H7725] .

2:42 And the king [H4428] sent [H7971] and called [H7121] for Shimei [H8096] , and said [H559] unto him, Did I not make thee to swear [H7650] by the LORD [H3068] , and protested [H5749] unto thee, saying [H559] , Know [H3045] for a certain [H3045] , on the day [H3117] thou goest out [H3318] , and walkest [H1980] abroad any whither [H575] , that thou shalt surely [H4191] die [H4191] ? and thou saidst [H559] unto me, The word [H1697] [that] I have heard [H8085] [is] good [H2896] .

2:43 Why then hast thou not kept [H8104] the oath [H7621] of the LORD [H3068] , and the commandment [H4687] that I have charged [H6680] thee with?

2:44 The king [H4428] said [H559] moreover to Shimei [H8096] , Thou knowest [H3045] all the wickedness [H7451] which thine heart [H3824] is privy to [H3045] , that thou didst [H6213] to David [H1732] my father [H1] : therefore the LORD [H3068] shall return [H7725] thy wickedness [H7451] upon thine own head [H7218] ;

2:45 And king [H4428] Solomon [H8010] [shall be] blessed [H1288] , and the throne [H3678] of David [H1732] shall be established [H3559] before [H6440] the LORD [H3068] for [H5704] ever [H5769] .

2:46 So the king [H4428] commanded [H6680] Benaiah [H1141] the son [H1121] of Jehoiada [H3077] ; which went out [H3318] , and fell [H6293] upon him, that he died [H4191] . And the kingdom [H4467] was established [H3559] in the hand [H3027] of Solomon [H8010] .
