Previous Chapter - 2 Samuel 24:1 Previous Verse - 1 Kings 1:20 Next Verse - 1 Kings 1:22 Next Chapter - 1 Kings 2:1
{1 Kings 1:21} Otherwise it shall come to pass, x1961 when my lord 113 the king 4428 shall sleep 7901 z8800 with x5973 his fathers, 1 that I x589 and my son 1121 Solomon 8010 shall be counted x1961 offenders. 2400
sleep:
"So David slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David." {1Kg 2:10} + "And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age." {Gen 15:15} + "And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, thou shalt sleep with thy fathers; and this people will rise up, and go a whoring after the gods of the strangers of the land, whither they go [to be] among them, and will forsake me, and break my covenant which I have made with them." {Deu 31:16}
that I:
That is, when Adonijah is established on the throne, I and my son Solomon shall be put to death as state criminals. The history of the world demonstrates, that the lust of dominion has tempted men to commit the most enormous crimes. A father has destroyed his son, a son deposed a father, and a brother murdered a brother, in order to obtain a crown!
offenders:
Heb. sinners, "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." {1Kg 2:15} + "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. ... 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." {1Kg 2:22-24}
