1 Kings 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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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

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

43  And Jonathan3129 answered6030 and said559 to Adonijah,138 Verily61 our lord113 king4428 David1732 hath made Solomon king.4427 853 8010

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

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

46  And also1571 Solomon8010 sitteth3427 on5921 the throne3678 of the kingdom.4410

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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


1 καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυιδ πρεσβύτερος προβεβηκὼς ἡμέραις καὶ περιέβαλλον αὐτὸν ἱματίοις καὶ οὐκ ἐθερμαίνετο

2 καὶ εἶπον οἱ παῖδες αὐτοῦ ζητησάτωσαν τῷ κυρίῳ ἡμῶν τῷ βασιλεῖ παρθένον νεάνιδα καὶ παραστήσεται τῷ βασιλεῖ καὶ ἔσται αὐτὸν θάλπουσα καὶ κοιμηθήσεται μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ θερμανθήσεται ὁ κύριος ἡμῶν ὁ βασιλεύς

3 καὶ ἐζήτησαν νεάνιδα καλὴν ἐκ παντὸς ὁρίου Ισραηλ καὶ εὗρον τὴν Αβισακ τὴν Σωμανῖτιν καὶ ἤνεγκαν αὐτὴν πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα

4 καὶ ἡ νεᾶνις καλὴ ἕως σφόδρα καὶ ἦν θάλπουσα τὸν βασιλέα καὶ ἐλειτούργει αὐτῷ καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς οὐκ ἔγνω αὐτήν

5 καὶ Αδωνιας υἱὸς Αγγιθ ἐπῄρετο λέγων ἐγὼ βασιλεύσω καὶ ἐποίησεν ἑαυτῷ ἅρματα καὶ ἱππεῖς καὶ πεντήκοντα ἄνδρας παρατρέχειν ἔμπροσθεν αὐτοῦ

6 καὶ οὐκ ἀπεκώλυσεν αὐτὸν ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ οὐδέποτε λέγων διὰ τί σὺ ἐποίησας καί γε αὐτὸς ὡραῖος τῇ ὄψει σφόδρα καὶ αὐτὸν ἔτεκεν ὀπίσω Αβεσσαλωμ

7 καὶ ἐγένοντο οἱ λόγοι αὐτοῦ μετὰ Ιωαβ τοῦ υἱοῦ Σαρουιας καὶ μετὰ Αβιαθαρ τοῦ ἱερέως καὶ ἐβοήθουν ὀπίσω Αδωνιου

8 καὶ Σαδωκ ὁ ἱερεὺς καὶ Βαναιας υἱὸς Ιωδαε καὶ Ναθαν ὁ προφήτης καὶ Σεμεϊ καὶ Ρηι καὶ οἱ δυνατοὶ τοῦ Δαυιδ οὐκ ἦσαν ὀπίσω Αδωνιου

9 καὶ ἐθυσίασεν Αδωνιας πρόβατα καὶ μόσχους καὶ ἄρνας μετὰ λίθου τοῦ Ζωελεθ ὃς ἦν ἐχόμενα τῆς πηγῆς Ρωγηλ καὶ ἐκάλεσεν πάντας τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντας τοὺς ἁδροὺς Ιουδα παῖδας τοῦ βασιλέως

10 καὶ τὸν Ναθαν τὸν προφήτην καὶ Βαναιαν καὶ τοὺς δυνατοὺς καὶ τὸν Σαλωμων ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἐκάλεσεν

11 καὶ εἶπεν Ναθαν πρὸς Βηρσαβεε μητέρα Σαλωμων λέγων οὐκ ἤκουσας ὅτι ἐβασίλευσεν Αδωνιας υἱὸς Αγγιθ καὶ ὁ κύριος ἡμῶν Δαυιδ οὐκ ἔγνω

12 καὶ νῦν δεῦρο συμβουλεύσω σοι δὴ συμβουλίαν καὶ ἐξελοῦ τὴν ψυχήν σου καὶ τὴν ψυχὴν τοῦ υἱοῦ σου Σαλωμων

13 δεῦρο εἴσελθε πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα Δαυιδ καὶ ἐρεῖς πρὸς αὐτὸν λέγουσα οὐχὶ σύ κύριέ μου βασιλεῦ ὤμοσας τῇ δούλῃ σου λέγων ὅτι Σαλωμων ὁ υἱός σου βασιλεύσει μετ᾽ ἐμὲ καὶ αὐτὸς καθιεῖται ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου μου καὶ τί ὅτι ἐβασίλευσεν Αδωνιας

14 καὶ ἰδοὺ ἔτι λαλούσης σου ἐκεῖ μετὰ τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἐγὼ εἰσελεύσομαι ὀπίσω σου καὶ πληρώσω τοὺς λόγους σου

15 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν Βηρσαβεε πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα εἰς τὸ ταμίειον καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς πρεσβύτης σφόδρα καὶ Αβισακ ἡ Σωμανῖτις ἦν λειτουργοῦσα τῷ βασιλεῖ

16 καὶ ἔκυψεν Βηρσαβεε καὶ προσεκύνησεν τῷ βασιλεῖ καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεύς τί ἐστίν σοι

17 ἡ δὲ εἶπεν κύριέ μου βασιλεῦ σὺ ὤμοσας ἐν κυρίῳ τῷ θεῷ σου τῇ δούλῃ σου λέγων ὅτι Σαλωμων ὁ υἱός σου βασιλεύσει μετ᾽ ἐμὲ καὶ αὐτὸς καθήσεται ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου μου

18 καὶ νῦν ἰδοὺ Αδωνιας ἐβασίλευσεν καὶ σύ κύριέ μου βασιλεῦ οὐκ ἔγνως

19 καὶ ἐθυσίασεν μόσχους καὶ ἄρνας καὶ πρόβατα εἰς πλῆθος καὶ ἐκάλεσεν πάντας τοὺς υἱοὺς τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ Αβιαθαρ τὸν ἱερέα καὶ Ιωαβ τὸν ἄρχοντα τῆς δυνάμεως καὶ τὸν Σαλωμων τὸν δοῦλόν σου οὐκ ἐκάλεσεν

20 καὶ σύ κύριέ μου βασιλεῦ οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ παντὸς Ισραηλ πρὸς σὲ ἀπαγγεῖλαι αὐτοῖς τίς καθήσεται ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου τοῦ κυρίου μου τοῦ βασιλέως μετ᾽ αὐτόν

21 καὶ ἔσται ὡς ἂν κοιμηθῇ ὁ κύριός μου ὁ βασιλεὺς μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἔσομαι ἐγὼ καὶ ὁ υἱός μου Σαλωμων ἁμαρτωλοί

22 καὶ ἰδοὺ ἔτι αὐτῆς λαλούσης μετὰ τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ Ναθαν ὁ προφήτης ἦλθεν

23 καὶ ἀνηγγέλη τῷ βασιλεῖ ἰδοὺ Ναθαν ὁ προφήτης καὶ εἰσῆλθεν κατὰ πρόσωπον τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ προσεκύνησεν τῷ βασιλεῖ κατὰ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν

24 καὶ εἶπεν Ναθαν κύριέ μου βασιλεῦ σὺ εἶπας Αδωνιας βασιλεύσει ὀπίσω μου καὶ αὐτὸς καθήσεται ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου μου

25 ὅτι κατέβη σήμερον καὶ ἐθυσίασεν μόσχους καὶ ἄρνας καὶ πρόβατα εἰς πλῆθος καὶ ἐκάλεσεν πάντας τοὺς υἱοὺς τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ τοὺς ἄρχοντας τῆς δυνάμεως καὶ Αβιαθαρ τὸν ἱερέα καὶ ἰδού εἰσιν ἐσθίοντες καὶ πίνοντες ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπαν ζήτω ὁ βασιλεὺς Αδωνιας

26 καὶ ἐμὲ αὐτὸν τὸν δοῦλόν σου καὶ Σαδωκ τὸν ἱερέα καὶ Βαναιαν υἱὸν Ιωδαε καὶ Σαλωμων τὸν δοῦλόν σου οὐκ ἐκάλεσεν

27 εἰ διὰ τοῦ κυρίου μου τοῦ βασιλέως γέγονεν τὸ ῥῆμα τοῦτο καὶ οὐκ ἐγνώρισας τῷ δούλῳ σου τίς καθήσεται ἐπὶ τὸν θρόνον τοῦ κυρίου μου τοῦ βασιλέως μετ᾽ αὐτόν

28 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη Δαυιδ καὶ εἶπεν καλέσατέ μοι τὴν Βηρσαβεε καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ἐνώπιον τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἔστη ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ

29 καὶ ὤμοσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ εἶπεν ζῇ κύριος ὃς ἐλυτρώσατο τὴν ψυχήν μου ἐκ πάσης θλίψεως

30 ὅτι καθὼς ὤμοσά σοι ἐν κυρίῳ τῷ θεῷ Ισραηλ λέγων ὅτι Σαλωμων ὁ υἱός σου βασιλεύσει μετ᾽ ἐμὲ καὶ αὐτὸς καθήσεται ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου μου ἀντ᾽ ἐμοῦ ὅτι οὕτως ποιήσω τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ταύτῃ

31 καὶ ἔκυψεν Βηρσαβεε ἐπὶ πρόσωπον ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ προσεκύνησεν τῷ βασιλεῖ καὶ εἶπεν ζήτω ὁ κύριός μου ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυιδ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα

32 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυιδ καλέσατέ μοι Σαδωκ τὸν ἱερέα καὶ Ναθαν τὸν προφήτην καὶ Βαναιαν υἱὸν Ιωδαε καὶ εἰσῆλθον ἐνώπιον τοῦ βασιλέως

33 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς αὐτοῖς λάβετε τοὺς δούλους τοῦ κυρίου ὑμῶν μεθ᾽ ὑμῶν καὶ ἐπιβιβάσατε τὸν υἱόν μου Σαλωμων ἐπὶ τὴν ἡμίονον τὴν ἐμὴν καὶ καταγάγετε αὐτὸν εἰς τὸν Γιων

34 καὶ χρισάτω αὐτὸν ἐκεῖ Σαδωκ ὁ ἱερεὺς καὶ Ναθαν ὁ προφήτης εἰς βασιλέα ἐπὶ Ισραηλ καὶ σαλπίσατε κερατίνῃ καὶ ἐρεῖτε ζήτω ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμων

35 καὶ καθήσεται ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου μου καὶ αὐτὸς βασιλεύσει ἀντ᾽ ἐμοῦ καὶ ἐγὼ ἐνετειλάμην τοῦ εἶναι εἰς ἡγούμενον ἐπὶ Ισραηλ καὶ Ιουδα

36 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη Βαναιας υἱὸς Ιωδαε τῷ βασιλεῖ καὶ εἶπεν γένοιτο οὕτως πιστώσαι κύριος ὁ θεὸς τοῦ κυρίου μου τοῦ βασιλέως

37 καθὼς ἦν κύριος μετὰ τοῦ κυρίου μου τοῦ βασιλέως οὕτως εἴη μετὰ Σαλωμων καὶ μεγαλύναι τὸν θρόνον αὐτοῦ ὑπὲρ τὸν θρόνον τοῦ κυρίου μου τοῦ βασιλέως Δαυιδ

38 καὶ κατέβη Σαδωκ ὁ ἱερεὺς καὶ Ναθαν ὁ προφήτης καὶ Βαναιας υἱὸς Ιωδαε καὶ ὁ χερεθθι καὶ ὁ φελεθθι καὶ ἐπεκάθισαν τὸν Σαλωμων ἐπὶ τὴν ἡμίονον τοῦ βασιλέως Δαυιδ καὶ ἀπήγαγον αὐτὸν εἰς τὸν Γιων

39 καὶ ἔλαβεν Σαδωκ ὁ ἱερεὺς τὸ κέρας τοῦ ἐλαίου ἐκ τῆς σκηνῆς καὶ ἔχρισεν τὸν Σαλωμων καὶ ἐσάλπισεν τῇ κερατίνῃ καὶ εἶπεν πᾶς ὁ λαός ζήτω ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμων

40 καὶ ἀνέβη πᾶς ὁ λαὸς ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐχόρευον ἐν χοροῖς καὶ εὐφραινόμενοι εὐφροσύνην μεγάλην καὶ ἐρράγη ἡ γῆ ἐν τῇ φωνῇ αὐτῶν

41 καὶ ἤκουσεν Αδωνιας καὶ πάντες οἱ κλητοὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ αὐτοὶ συνετέλεσαν φαγεῖν καὶ ἤκουσεν Ιωαβ τὴν φωνὴν τῆς κερατίνης καὶ εἶπεν τίς ἡ φωνὴ τῆς πόλεως ἠχούσης

42 ἔτι αὐτοῦ λαλοῦντος καὶ ἰδοὺ Ιωναθαν υἱὸς Αβιαθαρ τοῦ ἱερέως ἦλθεν καὶ εἶπεν Αδωνιας εἴσελθε ὅτι ἀνὴρ δυνάμεως εἶ σύ καὶ ἀγαθὰ εὐαγγέλισαι

43 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη Ιωναθαν καὶ εἶπεν καὶ μάλα ὁ κύριος ἡμῶν ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυιδ ἐβασίλευσεν τὸν Σαλωμων

44 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ὁ βασιλεὺς μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ τὸν Σαδωκ τὸν ἱερέα καὶ Ναθαν τὸν προφήτην καὶ Βαναιαν υἱὸν Ιωδαε καὶ τὸν χερεθθι καὶ τὸν φελεθθι καὶ ἐπεκάθισαν αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τὴν ἡμίονον τοῦ βασιλέως

45 καὶ ἔχρισαν αὐτὸν Σαδωκ ὁ ἱερεὺς καὶ Ναθαν ὁ προφήτης εἰς βασιλέα ἐν τῷ Γιων καὶ ἀνέβησαν ἐκεῖθεν εὐφραινόμενοι καὶ ἤχησεν ἡ πόλις αὕτη ἡ φωνή ἣν ἠκούσατε

46 καὶ ἐκάθισεν Σαλωμων ἐπὶ θρόνον τῆς βασιλείας

47 καὶ εἰσῆλθον οἱ δοῦλοι τοῦ βασιλέως εὐλογῆσαι τὸν κύριον ἡμῶν τὸν βασιλέα Δαυιδ λέγοντες ἀγαθύναι ὁ θεὸς τὸ ὄνομα Σαλωμων τοῦ υἱοῦ σου ὑπὲρ τὸ ὄνομά σου καὶ μεγαλύναι τὸν θρόνον αὐτοῦ ὑπὲρ τὸν θρόνον σου καὶ προσεκύνησεν ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐπὶ τὴν κοίτην αὐτοῦ

48 καί γε οὕτως εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεύς εὐλογητὸς κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ ὃς ἔδωκεν σήμερον ἐκ τοῦ σπέρματός μου καθήμενον ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου μου καὶ οἱ ὀφθαλμοί μου βλέπουσιν

49 καὶ ἐξέστησαν καὶ ἐξανέστησαν πάντες οἱ κλητοὶ τοῦ Αδωνιου καὶ ἀπῆλθον ἀνὴρ εἰς τὴν ὁδὸν αὐτοῦ

50 καὶ Αδωνιας ἐφοβήθη ἀπὸ προσώπου Σαλωμων καὶ ἀνέστη καὶ ἀπῆλθεν καὶ ἐπελάβετο τῶν κεράτων τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου

51 καὶ ἀνηγγέλη τῷ Σαλωμων λέγοντες ἰδοὺ Αδωνιας ἐφοβήθη τὸν βασιλέα Σαλωμων καὶ κατέχει τῶν κεράτων τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου λέγων ὀμοσάτω μοι σήμερον ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμων εἰ οὐ θανατώσει τὸν δοῦλον αὐτοῦ ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ

52 καὶ εἶπεν Σαλωμων ἐὰν γένηται εἰς υἱὸν δυνάμεως εἰ πεσεῖται τῶν τριχῶν αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ ἐὰν κακία εὑρεθῇ ἐν αὐτῷ θανατωθήσεται

53 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμων καὶ κατήνεγκεν αὐτὸν ἀπάνωθεν τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου καὶ εἰσῆλθεν καὶ προσεκύνησεν τῷ βασιλεῖ Σαλωμων καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Σαλωμων δεῦρο εἰς τὸν οἶκόν σου

1 Et rex David senuerat, habebatque ætatis plurimos dies: cumque operiretur vestibus, non calefiebat.

2 Dixerunt ergo ei servi sui: Quæramus domino nostro regi adolescentulam virginem, et stet coram rege, et foveat eum, dormiatque in sinu suo, et calefaciat dominum nostrum regem.

3 Quæsierunt igitur adolescentulam speciosam in omnibus finibus Israël, et invenerunt Abisag Sunamitidem, et adduxerunt eam ad regem.

4 Erat autem puella pulchra nimis, dormiebatque cum rege, et ministrabat ei: rex vero non cognovit eam.

5 Adonias autem filius Haggith elevabatur, dicens: Ego regnabo. Fecitque sibi currus et equites, et quinquaginta viros qui currerent ante eum.

6 Nec corripuit eum pater suus aliquando, dicens: Quare hoc fecisti? Erat autem et ipse pulcher valde, secundus natu post Absalom.

7 Et sermo ei cum Joab filio Sarviæ, et cum Abiathar sacerdote, qui adjuvabant partes Adoniæ.

8 Sadoc vero sacerdos, et Banaias filius Jojadæ, et Nathan propheta, et Semei et Rei, et robur exercitus David, non erat cum Adonia.

9 Immolatis ergo Adonias arietibus et vitulis, et universis pinguibus, juxta lapidem Zoheleth, qui erat vicinus fonti Rogel, vocavit universos fratres suos filios regis, et omnes viros Juda servos regis.

10 Nathan autem prophetam, et Banaiam, et robustos quosque, et Salomonem fratrem suum non vocavit.

11 Dixit itaque Nathan ad Bethsabee matrem Salomonis: Num audisti quod regnaverit Adonias filius Haggith, et dominus noster David hoc ignorat?

12 Nunc ergo veni, accipe consilium a me, et salva animam tuam, filiique tui Salomonis.

13 Vade, et ingredere ad regem David, et dic ei: Nonne tu, domine mi rex, jurasti mihi ancillæ tuæ, dicens: Salomon filius tuus regnabit post me, et ipse sedebit in solio meo? quare ergo regnat Adonias?

14 Et adhuc ibi te loquente cum rege, ego veniam post te, et complebo sermones tuos.

15 Ingressa est itaque Bethsabee ad regem in cubiculum: rex autem senuerat nimis, et Abisag Sunamitis ministrabat ei.

16 Inclinavit se Bethsabee, et adoravit regem. Ad quam rex: Quid tibi, inquit, vis?

17 Quæ respondens, ait: Domine mi, tu jurasti per Dominum Deum tuum ancillæ tuæ: Salomon filius tuus regnabit post me, et ipse sedebit in solio meo.

18 Et ecce nunc Adonias regnat, te, domine mi rex, ignorante.

19 Mactavit boves, et pinguia quæque, et arietes plurimos, et vocavit omnes filios regis, Abiathar quoque sacerdotem, et Joab principem militiæ: Salomonem autem servum tuum non vocavit.

20 Verumtamen, domine mi rex, in te oculi respiciunt totius Israël, ut indices eis quis sedere debeat in solio tuo, domine mi rex, post te.

21 Eritque, cum dormierit dominus meus rex cum patribus suis, erimus ego et filius meus Salomon peccatores.

22 Adhuc illa loquente cum rege, Nathan propheta venit.

23 Et nuntiaverunt regi, dicentes: Adest Nathan propheta. Cumque introisset in conspectu regis, et adorasset eum pronus in terram,

24 dixit Nathan: Domine mi rex, tu dixisti: Adonias regnet post me, et ipse sedeat super thronum meum?

25 Quia descendit hodie, et immolavit boves, et pinguia, et arietes plurimos, et vocavit universos filios regis et principes exercitus, Abiathar quoque sacerdotem, illisque vescentibus et bibentibus coram eo, et dicentibus: Vivat rex Adonias:

26 me servum tuum, et Sadoc sacerdotem, et Banaiam filium Jojadæ, et Salomonem famulum tuum non vocavit.

27 Numquid a domino meo rege exivit hoc verbum, et mihi non indicasti servo tuo quis sessurus esset super thronum domini mei regis post eum?

28 Et respondit rex David, dicens: Vocate ad me Bethsabee. Quæ cum fuisset ingressa coram rege, et stetisset ante eum,

29 juravit rex, et ait: Vivit Dominus, qui eruit animam meam de omni angustia,

30 quia sicut juravi tibi per Dominum Deum Israël, dicens: Salomon filius tuus regnabit post me, et ipse sedebit super solium meum pro me: sic faciam hodie.

31 Summissoque Bethsabee in terram vultu, adoravit regem, dicens: Vivat dominus meus David in æternum.

32 Dixit quoque rex David: Vocate mihi Sadoc sacerdotem, et Nathan prophetam, et Banaiam filium Jojadæ. Qui cum ingressi fuissent coram rege,

33 dixit ad eos: Tollite vobiscum servos domini vestri, et imponite Salomonem filium meum super mulam meam, et ducite eum in Gihon.

34 Et ungat eum ibi Sadoc sacerdos et Nathan propheta in regem super Israël: et canetis buccina, atque dicetis: Vivat rex Salomon.

35 Et ascendetis post eum, et veniet, et sedebit super solium meum, et ipse regnabit pro me: illique præcipiam ut sit dux super Israël et super Judam.

36 Et respondit Banaias filius Jojadæ regi, dicens: Amen: sic loquatur Dominus Deus domini mei regis.

37 Quomodo fuit Dominus cum domino meo rege, sic sit cum Salomone, et sublimius faciat solium ejus a solio domini mei regis David.

38 Descendit ergo Sadoc sacerdos, et Nathan propheta, et Banaias filius Jojadæ, et Cerethi, et Phelethi: et imposuerunt Salomonem super mulam regis David, et adduxerunt eum in Gihon.

39 Sumpsitque Sadoc sacerdos cornu olei de tabernaculo, et unxit Salomonem: et cecinerunt buccina, et dixit omnis populus: Vivat rex Salomon.

40 Et ascendit universa multitudo post eum, et populus canentium tibiis, et lætantium gaudio magno: et insonuit terra a clamore eorum.

41 Audivit autem Adonias, et omnes qui invitati fuerant ab eo: jamque convivium finitum erat: sed et Joab, audita voce tubæ, ait: Quid sibi vult clamor civitatis tumultuantis?

42 Adhuc illo loquente, Jonathas filius Abiathar sacerdotis venit: cui dixit Adonias: Ingredere, quia vir fortis es, et bona nuntians.

43 Responditque Jonathas Adoniæ: Nequaquam: dominus enim noster rex David regem constituit Salomonem:

44 misitque cum eo Sadoc sacerdotem, et Nathan prophetam, et Banaiam filium Jojadæ, et Cerethi, et Phelethi, et imposuerunt eum super mulam regis.

45 Unxeruntque eum Sadoc sacerdos et Nathan propheta regem in Gihon: et ascenderunt inde lætantes, et insonuit civitas: hæc est vox quam audistis.

46 Sed et Salomon sedet super solium regni.

47 Et ingressi servi regis benedixerunt domino nostro regi David, dicentes: Amplificet Deus nomen Salomonis super nomen tuum, et magnificet thronus ejus super thronum tuum. Et adoravit rex in lectulo suo:

48 et locutus est: Benedictus Dominus Deus Israël, qui dedit hodie sedentem in solio meo, videntibus oculis meis.

49 Territi sunt ergo, et surrexerunt omnes qui invitati fuerant ab Adonia, et ivit unusquisque in viam suam.

50 Adonias autem timens Salomonem, surrexit, et abiit, tenuitque cornu altaris.

51 Et nuntiaverunt Salomoni, dicentes: Ecce Adonias timens regem Salomonem, tenuit cornu altaris, dicens: Juret mihi rex Salomon hodie, quod non interficiat servum suum gladio.

52 Dixitque Salomon: Si fuerit vir bonus, non cadet ne unus quidem capillus ejus in terram: sin autem malum inventum fuerit in eo, morietur.

53 Misit ergo rex Salomon, et eduxit eum ab altari: et ingressus adoravit regem Salomonem: dixitque ei Salomon: Vade in domum tuam.
