Book 11 Chapter 2

2:1
adpropinquaverant autem dies David ut moreretur praecepitqueSalomoni filio suo dicens

2:2
ego ingredior viam universae terrae confortare et esto vir

2:3
et observa custodias Domini Dei tui ut ambules in viis eiuset custodias caerimonias eius et praecepta eius et iudicia ettestimonia sicut scriptum est in lege Mosi ut intellegasuniversa quae facis et quocumque te verteris

2:4
ut confirmet Dominus sermones suos quos locutus est de medicens si custodierint filii tui viam suam et ambulaverintcoram me in veritate in omni corde suo et in omni anima sua nonauferetur tibi vir de solio Israhel

2:5
tu quoque nosti quae fecerit mihi Ioab filius Sarviae quaefecerit duobus principibus exercitus Israhel Abner filio Ner etAmasa filio Iether quos occidit et effudit sanguinem belli inpace et posuit cruorem proelii in balteo suo qui erat circalumbos eius et in calciamento suo quod erat in pedibus eius

2:6
facies ergo iuxta sapientiam tuam et non deduces canitiemeius pacifice ad inferos

2:7
sed et filiis Berzellai Galaaditis reddes gratiam eruntquecomedentes in mensa tua occurrerunt enim mihi quando fugiebam afacie Absalom fratris tui

2:8
habes quoque apud te Semei filium Gera filii Iemini deBaurim qui maledixit mihi maledictione pessima quando ibam adCastra sed quia descendit mihi in occursum cum transiremIordanem et iuravi ei per Dominum dicens non te interficiamgladio

2:9
tu noli pati esse eum innoxium vir autem sapiens es et sciesquae facias ei deducesque canos eius cum sanguine ad infernum

2:10
dormivit igitur David cum patribus suis et sepultus est incivitate David

2:11
dies autem quibus regnavit David super Israhel quadragintaanni sunt in Hebron regnavit septem annis in Hierusalemtriginta tribus

2:12
Salomon autem sedit super thronum David patris sui etfirmatum est regnum eius nimis

2:13
et ingressus est Adonias filius Aggith ad Bethsabee matremSalomonis quae dixit ei pacificusne ingressus tuus quirespondit pacificus

2:14
addiditque sermo mihi est ad te cui ait loquere et ille

2:15
tu inquit nosti quia meum erat regnum et me proposueratomnis Israhel sibi in regem sed translatum est regnum et factumest fratris mei a Domino enim constitutum est ei

2:16
nunc ergo petitionem unam deprecor a te ne confundas faciemmeam quae dixit ad eum loquere

2:17
et ille ait precor ut dicas Salomoni regi neque enim negaretibi quicquam potest ut det mihi Abisag Sunamitin uxorem

2:18
et ait Bethsabee bene ego loquar pro te regi

2:19
venit ergo Bethsabee ad regem Salomonem ut loqueretur eipro Adonia et surrexit rex in occursum eius adoravitque eam etsedit super thronum suum positus quoque est thronus matri regisquae sedit ad dexteram eius

2:20
dixitque ei petitionem unam parvulam ego deprecor a te neconfundas faciem meam dixit ei rex pete mater mi neque enim fasest ut avertam faciem tuam

2:21
quae ait detur Abisag Sunamitis Adoniae fratri tuo uxor

2:22
responditque rex Salomon et dixit matri suae quare postulasAbisag Sunamitin Adoniae postula ei et regnum ipse est enimfrater meus maior me et habet Abiathar sacerdotem et Ioabfilium Sarviae

2:23
iuravit itaque rex Salomon per Dominum dicens haec faciatmihi Deus et haec addat quia contra animam suam locutus estAdonias verbum hoc

2:24
et nunc vivit Dominus qui firmavit me et conlocavit supersolium David patris mei et qui fecit mihi domum sicut locutusest quia hodie occidetur Adonias

2:25
misitque rex Salomon per manum Banaiae filii Ioiadae quiinterfecit eum et mortuus est

2:26
Abiathar quoque sacerdoti dixit rex vade in Anathot adagrum tuum es quidem vir mortis sed hodie te non interficiamquia portasti arcam Domini Dei coram David patre meo etsustinuisti laborem in omnibus in quibus laboravit pater meus

2:27
eiecit ergo Salomon Abiathar ut non esset sacerdos Dominiut impleretur sermo Domini quem locutus est super domum Heli inSilo

2:28
venit autem nuntius ad Ioab quod Ioab declinasset postAdoniam et post Absalom non declinasset fugit ergo Ioab intabernaculum Domini et adprehendit cornu altaris

2:29
nuntiatumque est regi Salomoni quod fugisset Ioab intabernaculum Domini et esset iuxta altare misitque SalomonBanaiam filium Ioiadae dicens vade interfice eum

2:30
venit Banaias ad tabernaculum Domini et dixit ei haec dicitrex egredere qui ait non egrediar sed hic moriar renuntiavitBanaias regi sermonem dicens haec locutus est Ioab et haecrespondit mihi

2:31
dixitque ei rex fac sicut locutus est et interfice eum etsepeli et amovebis sanguinem innocentem qui effusus est a Ioaba me et a domo patris mei

2:32
et reddat Dominus sanguinem eius super caput eius quiainterfecit duos viros iustos melioresque se et occidit eosgladio patre meo David ignorante Abner filium Ner principemmilitiae Israhel et Amasa filium Iether principem exercitusIuda

2:33
et revertetur sanguis illorum in caput Ioab et in caputseminis eius in sempiternum David autem et semini eius et domuiet throno illius sit pax usque in aeternum a Domino

2:34
ascendit itaque Banaias filius Ioiadae et adgressus euminterfecit sepultusque est in domo sua in deserto

2:35
et constituit rex Banaiam filium Ioiadae pro eo superexercitum et Sadoc sacerdotem posuit pro Abiathar

2:36
misit quoque rex et vocavit Semei dixitque ei aedifica tibidomum in Hierusalem et habita ibi et non egredieris inde hucatque illuc

2:37
quacumque autem die egressus fueris et transieris torrentemCedron scito te interficiendum sanguis tuus erit super caputtuum

2:38
dixitque Semei regi bonus sermo sicut locutus est dominusmeus rex sic faciet servus tuus habitavit itaque Semei inHierusalem diebus multis

2:39
factum est autem post annos tres ut fugerent servi Semei adAchis filium Maacha regem Geth nuntiatumque est Semei quodservi eius essent in Geth

2:40
et surrexit Semei et stravit asinum suum ivitque in Geth adAchis ad requirendos servos suos et adduxit eos de Geth

2:41
nuntiatum est autem Salomoni quod isset Semei in Geth deHierusalem et redisset

2:42
et mittens vocavit eum dixitque illi nonne testificatus sumtibi per Dominum et praedixi tibi quacumque die egressus ierishuc et illuc scito te esse moriturum et respondisti mihi bonussermo audivi

2:43
quare ergo non custodisti iusiurandum Domini et praeceptumquod praeceperam tibi

2:44
dixitque rex ad Semei tu nosti omne malum cuius tibiconscium est cor tuum quod fecisti David patri meo reddiditDominus malitiam tuam in caput tuum

2:45
et rex Salomon benedictus et thronus David erit stabiliscoram Domino usque in sempiternum

2:46
iussit itaque rex Banaiae filio Ioiadae qui egressuspercussit eum et mortuus est

002:001
Now the days of David drew nigh that he should die; and he charged Solomon his son, saying,

002:002
I go the way of all the earth: be thou strong therefore, and show thyself a man;

002:003
And keep the charge of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself:

002:004
That the LORD may continue his word which he spake concerning me, saying, If thy children take heed to their way, to walk before me in truth with all their heart and with all their soul, there shall not fail thee (said he) a man on the throne of Israel.

002:005
Moreover thou knowest also what Joab the son of Zeruiah did to me, and what he did to the two captains of the hosts of Israel, unto Abner the son of Ner, and unto Amasa the son of Jether, whom he slew, and shed the blood of war in peace, and put the blood of war upon his girdle that was about his loins, and in his shoes that were on his feet.

002:006
Do therefore according to thy wisdom, and let not his hoar head go down to the grave in peace.

002:007
But show kindness unto the sons of Barzillai the Gileadite, and let them be of those that eat at thy table: for so they came to me when I fled because of Absalom thy brother.

002:008
And, behold, thou hast with thee Shimei the son of Gera, a Benjamite of Bahurim, which cursed me with a grievous curse in the day when I went to Mahanaim: but he came down to meet me at Jordan, and I sware to him by the LORD, saying, I will not put thee to death with the sword.

002:009
Now therefore hold him not guiltless: for thou art a wise man, and knowest what thou oughtest to do unto him; but his hoar head bring thou down to the grave with blood.

002:010
So David slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David.

002:011
And the days that David reigned over Israel were forty years: seven years reigned he in Hebron, and thirty and three years reigned he in Jerusalem.

002:012
Then sat Solomon upon the throne of David his father; and his kingdom was established greatly.

002:013
And Adonijah the son of Haggith came to Bathsheba the mother of Solomon. And she said, Comest thou peaceably? And he said, Peaceably.

002:014
He said moreover, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And she said, Say on.

002:015
And he said, Thou knowest that the kingdom was mine, and that all Israel set their faces on me, that I should reign: howbeit the kingdom is turned about, and is become my brother's: for it was his from the LORD.

002:016
And now I ask one petition of thee, deny me not. And she said unto him, Say on.

002:017
And he said, Speak, I pray thee, unto Solomon the king, (for he will not say thee nay,) that he give me Abishag the Shunammite to wife.

002:018
And Bathsheba said, Well; I will speak for thee unto the king.

002:019
Bathsheba therefore went unto king Solomon, to speak unto him for Adonijah. And the king rose up to meet her, and bowed himself unto her, and sat down on his throne, and caused a seat to be set for the king's mother; and she sat on his right hand.

002:020
Then she said, I desire one small petition of thee; I pray thee, say me not nay. And the king said unto her, Ask on, my mother: for I will not say thee nay.

002:021
And she said, Let Abishag the Shunammite be given to Adonijah thy brother to wife.

002:022
And king Solomon answered and said unto his mother, And why dost thou ask Abishag the Shunammite for Adonijah? ask for him the kingdom also; for he is mine elder brother; even for him, and for Abiathar the priest, and for Joab the son of Zeruiah.

002:023
Then king Solomon sware by the LORD, saying, God do so to me, and more also, if Adonijah have not spoken this word against his own life.

002:024
Now therefore, as the LORD liveth, which hath established me, and set me on the throne of David my father, and who hath made me an house, as he promised, Adonijah shall be put to death this day.

002:025
And king Solomon sent by the hand of Benaiah the son of Jehoiada; and he fell upon him that he died.

002:026
And unto Abiathar the priest said the king, Get thee to Anathoth, unto thine own fields; for thou art worthy of death: but I will not at this time put thee to death, because thou barest the ark of the LORD God before David my father, and because thou hast been afflicted in all wherein my father was afflicted.

002:027
So Solomon thrust out Abiathar from being priest unto the LORD; that he might fulfil the word of the LORD, which he spake concerning the house of Eli in Shiloh.

002:028
Then tidings came to Joab: for Joab had turned after Adonijah, though he turned not after Absalom. And Joab fled unto the tabernacle of the LORD, and caught hold on the horns of the altar.

002:029
And it was told king Solomon that Joab was fled unto the tabernacle of the LORD; and, behold, he is by the altar. Then Solomon sent Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, saying, Go, fall upon him.

002:030
And Benaiah came to the tabernacle of the LORD, and said unto him, Thus saith the king, Come forth. And he said, Nay; but I will die here. And Benaiah brought the king word again, saying, Thus said Joab, and thus he answered me.

002:031
And the king said unto him, Do as he hath said, and fall upon him, and bury him; that thou mayest take away the innocent blood, which Joab shed, from me, and from the house of my father.

002:032
And the LORD shall return his blood upon his own head, who fell upon two men more righteous and better than he, and slew them with the sword, my father David not knowing thereof, to wit, Abner the son of Ner, captain of the host of Israel, and Amasa the son of Jether, captain of the host of Judah.

002:033
Their blood shall therefore return upon the head of Joab, and upon the head of his seed for ever: but upon David, and upon his seed, and upon his house, and upon his throne, shall there be peace for ever from the LORD.

002:034
So Benaiah the son of Jehoiada went up, and fell upon him, and slew him: and he was buried in his own house in the wilderness.

002:035
And the king put Benaiah the son of Jehoiada in his room over the host: and Zadok the priest did the king put in the room of Abiathar.

002:036
And the king sent and called for Shimei, and said unto him, Build thee an house in Jerusalem, and dwell there, and go not forth thence any whither.

002:037
For it shall be, that on the day thou goest out, and passest over the brook Kidron, thou shalt know for certain that thou shalt surely die: thy blood shall be upon thine own head.

002:038
And Shimei said unto the king, The saying is good: as my lord the king hath said, so will thy servant do. And Shimei dwelt in Jerusalem many days.

002:039
And it came to pass at the end of three years, that two of the servants of Shimei ran away unto Achish son of Maachah king of Gath. And they told Shimei, saying, Behold, thy servants be in Gath.

002:040
And Shimei arose, and saddled his ass, and went to Gath to Achish to seek his servants: and Shimei went, and brought his servants from Gath.

002:041
And it was told Solomon that Shimei had gone from Jerusalem to Gath, and was come again.

002:042
And the king sent and called for Shimei, and said unto him, Did I not make thee to swear by the LORD, and protested unto thee, saying, Know for a certain, on the day thou goest out, and walkest abroad any whither, that thou shalt surely die? and thou saidst unto me, The word that I have heard is good.

002:043
Why then hast thou not kept the oath of the LORD, and the commandment that I have charged thee with?

002:044
The king said moreover to Shimei, Thou knowest all the wickedness which thine heart is privy to, that thou didst to David my father: therefore the LORD shall return thy wickedness upon thine own head;

002:045
And king Solomon shall be blessed, and the throne of David shall be established before the LORD for ever.

002:046
So the king commanded Benaiah the son of Jehoiada; which went out, and fell upon him, that he died. And the kingdom was established in the hand of Solomon.
