1 And king David [was] old and advanced in days, and they covered him with clothes, and he was not warmed. 2 And his servants said, Let them seek for the king a young virgin, and she shall wait on the king, and cherish him, and lie with him, and my lord the king shall be warmed. 3 So they sought for a fair damsel out of all the coasts of Israel; and they found Abisag the Somanite, and they brought her to the king. 4 And the damsel was extremely beautiful, and she cherished the king, and ministered to him, but the king knew her not. 5 And Adonias the son of Aggit exalted himself, saying, I will be king; and he prepared for himself chariots and horses, and fifty men to run before him. 6 And his father never at any time checked him, saying, Why hast thou done [thus]? and he was also very handsome in appearance, and his mother bore him after Abessalom. 7 And he conferred with Joab the son of Saruia, and with Abiathar the priest, and they followed after Adonias. 8 But Sadoc the priest, and Banaeas the son of Jodae, and Nathan the prophet, and Semei, and Resi, and the mighty men of David, did not follow Adonias. 9 And Adonias sacrificed sheep and calves and lambs by the stone of Zoelethi, which was near Rogel: and he called all his brethren, and all the adult [men] of Juda, servants of the king. 10 But Nathan the prophet, and Banaeas, and the mighty [men], and Solomon his brother, he did not call. 11 And Nathan spoke to Bersabee the mother of Solomon, saying, Hast thou not heard that Adonias the son of Aggith reigns, and our lord David knows it not? 12 And now come, let me, I pray, give thee counsel, and thou shalt rescue thy life, and the life of thy son Solomon. 13 Haste, and go in to king David, and thou shalt speak to him, saying, Hast not thou, my lord, O king, sworn to thine handmaid, saying, Thy son Solomon shall reign after me, and he shall sit upon my throne? why then does Adonias reign? 14 And behold, while thou art still speaking there with the king, I also will come in after thee, and will confirm thy words. 15 So Bersabee went in to the king into the chamber: and the king was very old, and Abisag the Somanite was ministering to the king. 16 And Bersabee bowed, and did obeisance to the king; and the king said, What is thy request? 17 And she said, My lord, thou didst swear by the Lord thy God to thine handmaid, saying, Thy son Solomon shall reign after me, and shall sit upon my throne. 18 And now, behold, Adonias reigns, and thou, my lord, O king, knowest [it] not. 19 And he has sacrificed calves and lambs and sheep in abundance, and has called all the king's sons, and Abiathar the priest and Joab the commander-in-chief of the host; but Solomon thy servant he has not called. 20 And thou, my lord, O king,-- the eyes of all Israel [are] upon thee, to tell them who shall sit upon the throne of my lord the king after him. 21 And it shall come to pass, when my lord the king shall sleep with his fathers, that I and Solomon my son shall be offenders. 22 And behold, while she was yet talking with the king, Nathan the prophet came. And it was reported to the king, 23 Behold, Nathan the prophet [is here]: and he came in to the king's presence, and did obeisance to the king with his face to the ground. 24 And Nathan said, My lord, O king, didst thou say, Adonias shall reign after me, and he shall sit upon my throne? 25 For he has gone down to-day, and has sacrificed calves and lambs and sheep in abundance, and has called all the king's sons, and the chiefs of the army, and Abiathar the priest; and, behold, they are eating and drinking before him, and they said, [Long] live king Adonias. 26 But he has not invited me thy servant, and Sadoc the priest, and Banaeas the son of Jodae, and Solomon thy servant. 27 Has this matter happened by the authority of my lord the king, and hast thou not made known to thy servant who shall sit upon the throne of my lord the king after him? 28 And king David answered and said, Call me Bersabee: and she came in before the king, and stood before him. 29 And the king swore, and said, [As] the Lord lives who redeemed my soul out of all affliction, 30 as I swore to thee by the Lord God of Israel, saying, Solomon thy son shall reign after me, and he shall sit upon my throne in my stead, so will I do this day. 31 And Bersabee bowed with her face to the ground, and did obeisance to the king, and said, Let my lord king David live for ever. 32 And king David said, Call me Sadoc the priest, and Nathan the prophet, and Banaeas the son of Jodae: and they came in before the king. 33 And the king said t them, Take the servants of your lord with you, and mount my son Solomon upon my own mule, and bring him down to Gion. 34 And there let Sadoc the priest and Nathan the prophet anoint him to be king over Israel, and do ye sound the trumpet, and ye shall say, Let king Solomon live. 35 And he shall sit upon my throne, and reign in my stead: and I have given charge that he should be for a prince over Israel and Juda. 36 And Banaeas the son of Jodae answered the king and said, So let it be: may the Lord God of my lord the king confirm [it]. 37 As the Lord was with my lord the king, so let him be with Solomon, and let him exalt his throne beyond the throne of my lord king David. 38 And Sadoc the priest went down, and Nathan the prophet, and Banaeas son of Jodae, and the Cherethite, and the Phelethite, and they mounted Solomon upon the mule of king David, and led him away to Geon. 39 And Sadoc the priest took the horn of oil out of the tabernacle, and anointed Solomon, and blew the trumpet; and all the people said, Let king Solomon live. 40 And all the people went up after him, and they danced in choirs, and rejoiced with great joy, and the earth quaked with their voice. 41 And Adonias and all his guests heard, and they had [just] left off eating: and Joab heard the sound of the trumpet, and said, What [means] the voice of the city in tumult? 42 While he was yet speaking, behold, Jonathan the son of Abiathar the priest came in: and Adonias said, Come in, for thou art a mighty man, and [thou comest] to bring glad tidings. 43 And Jonathan answered and said, Verily our lord king David has made Solomon king: 44 and the king has sent with him Sadoc the priest, and Nathan the prophet, and Banaeas the son of Jodae, and the Cherethite, and the Phelethite, and they have mounted him on the king's mule; 45 and Sadoc the priest and Nathan the prophet have anointed him in Geon, and have gone up thence rejoicing, and the city resounded: this [is] the sound which ye have heard. 46 And Solomon is seated upon the throne of the kingdom. 47 And the servants of the king have gone in to bless our lord king David, saying, God make the name of Solomon better than thy name, and make his throne greater than thy throne; and the king worshipped upon his bed. 48 Moreover thus said the king, Blessed [be] the Lord God of Israel, who has this day appointed one of my seed sitting on my throne, and my eyes see it. 49 And all the guests of Adonias were dismayed, and every man went his way. 50 And Adonias feared because of Solomon, and arose, and departed, and laid hold on the horns of the altar. 51 And it was reported to Solomon, saying, Behold, Adonias fears king Solomon, and holds the horns of the altar, saying, Let Solomon swear to me this day, that he will not slay his servant with the sword. 52 And Solomon said, If he should be a valiant man, there shall not a hair of his fall to the ground; but if evil be found in him, he shall die. 53 And king Solomon sent, and they brought him away from the altar; and he went in and did obeisance to king Solomon: and Solomon said to him, Go to thy house.
ΚΑΙ ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυὶδ πρεσβύτερος προβεβηκὼς ἡμέραις, καὶ περιέβαλλον αὐτὸν ἱματίοις, καὶ οὐκ ἐθερμαίνετο. 2 καὶ εἶπον οἱ παῖδες αὐτοῦ· ζητησάτωσαν τῷ βασιλεῖ παρθένον νεάνιδα, καὶ παραστήσεται τῷ βασιλεῖ καὶ ἔσται αὐτὸν θάλπουσαν καὶ κοιμηθήσεται μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ καὶ θερμανθήσεται ὁ κύριός μου ὁ βασιλεύς. 3 καὶ ἐζήτησαν νεάνιδα καλὴν ἐκ παντὸς ὁρίου ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ εὗρον τὴν ᾿Αβισὰγ 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 ᾿Αδωνίας υἱὸς ᾿Αγγὶθ 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· διατὶ σὺ ἐποίησας; καί γε αὐτὸς ὡραῖος τῇ ὄψει σφόδρα, καὶ αὐτὸν ἔτεκεν ὀπίσω ᾿Αβεσσαλώμ. 7 καὶ ἐγένοντο οἱ λόγοι αὐτοῦ μετὰ ᾿Ιωὰβ τοῦ υἱοῦ Σαρουΐας καὶ μετὰ ᾿Αβιάθαρ τοῦ ἱερέως, καὶ ἐβοήθουν ὀπίσω ᾿Αδωνίου· 8 καὶ Σαδὼκ ὁ ἱερεὺς καὶ Βαναίας υἱὸς ᾿Ιωδαὲ καὶ Νάθαν ὁ προφήτης καὶ Σεμεΐ καὶ Ρησὶ καὶ υἱοὶ δυνατοὶ τοῦ Δαυὶδ οὐκ ἦσαν ὀπίσω ᾿Αδωνίου. 9 καὶ ἐθυσίασεν ᾿Αδωνίας πρόβατα καὶ μόσχους καὶ ἄρνας παρὰ τὸν λίθον τοῦ Ζωελεθί, ὃς ἦν ἐχόμενα τῆς Ρωγήλ, καὶ ἐκάλεσε πάντας τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντας τοὺς ἁδροὺς ᾿Ιούδα παῖδας τοῦ βασιλέως· 10 καὶ Νάθαν τὸν προφήτην καὶ Βαναίαν καὶ τοὺς δυνατούς, καὶ τὸν Σαλωμὼν ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἐκάλεσε.
11 Καὶ εἶπε Νάθαν πρὸς Βηρσαβεὲ μητέρα Σαλωμὼν λέγων· οὐκ ἤκουσας ὅτι ἐβασίλευσεν ᾿Αδωνίας υἱὸς ᾿Αγγίθ; καὶ ὁ κύριος ἡμῶν Δαυὶδ οὐκ ἔγνω. 12 καὶ νῦν δεῦρο συμβουλεύσω σοι δὴ συμβουλίαν, καὶ ἐξελοῦ τὴν ψυχήν σου καὶ τὴν ψυχὴν τοῦ υἱοῦ σου Σαλωμών. 13 δεῦρο εἴσελθε πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα Δαυὶδ καὶ ἐρεῖς πρὸς αὐτὸν λέγουσα· οὐχὶ σύ, κύριέ μου βασιλεῦ, ὤμοσας τῇ δούλῃ σου λέγων ὅτι ὁ υἱός σου Σαλωμὼν βασιλεύσει μετ᾿ ἐμὲ καὶ αὐτὸς καθιεῖται ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου μου; καὶ τί ὅτι ἐβασίλευσεν ᾿Αδωνίας; 14 καὶ ἰδοὺ ἔτι λαλούσης σου ἐκεῖ μετὰ τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἐγὼ εἰσελεύσομαι ὀπίσω σου καὶ πληρώσω τοὺς λόγους σου. 15 καὶ εἰσῆλθε Βηρσαβεὲ πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα εἰς τὸ ταμιεῖον, καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς πρεσβύτης σφόδρα, καὶ ᾿Αβισὰγ ἡ Σωμανῖτις ἦν λειτουργοῦσα τῷ βασιλεῖ. 16 καὶ ἔκυψε Βηρσαβεὲ καὶ προσεκύνησε τῷ βασιλεῖ· καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεύς· τί ἔστι σοι; 17 ἡ δὲ εἶπε· κύριέ μου βασιλεῦ, σὺ ὤμοσας ἐν Κυρίῳ τῷ Θεῷ σου τῇ δούλῃ σου λέγων· ὅτι ὁ υἱός σου Σαλωμὼν βασιλεύσει μετ᾿ ἐμὲ καὶ αὐτὸς καθήσεται ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου μου. 18 καὶ νῦν ἰδοὺ ᾿Αδωνίας ἐβασίλευσε, καὶ σύ, κύριέ μου βασιλεῦ, οὐκ ἔγνως· 19 καὶ ἐθυσίασε μόσχους καὶ ἄρνας καὶ πρόβατα εἰς πλῆθος καὶ ἐκάλεσε πάντας τοὺς υἱοὺς τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ᾿Αβιάθαρ τὸν ἱερέα καὶ ᾿Ιωὰβ τὸν ἄρχοντα τῆς δυνάμεως, καὶ τὸν Σαλωμὼν τὸν δοῦλόν σου οὐκ ἐκάλεσε. 20 καὶ σύ, κύριέ μου βασιλεῦ, οἱ ὀφθαλμοὶ παντὸς ᾿Ισραὴλ πρός σε. ἀπάγγειλαι 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 Σαλωμὼν ὁ υἱὸς μου ἁμαρτωλοί. 22 καὶ ἰδοὺ ἔτι αὐτῆς λαλούσης μετὰ τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ Νάθαν ὁ προφήτης ἦλθε. 23 καὶ ἀνηγγέλη τῷ βασιλεῖ· ἰδοὺ Νάθαν ὁ προφήτης· καὶ εἰσῆλθε κατὰ πρόσωπον τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ προσεκύνησε τῷ βασιλεῖ κατὰ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν. 24 καὶ εἶπε Νάθαν· κύριέ μου βασιλεῦ, σὺ εἶπας ᾿Αδωνίας βασιλεύσει ὀπίσω μου καὶ αὐτὸς καθήσεται ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου μου; 25 ὅτι κατέβη σήμερον καὶ ἐθυσίασε μόσχους καὶ ἄρνας καὶ πρόβατα εἰς πλῆθος καὶ ἐκάλεσε πάντας τοὺς υἱοὺς τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ τοὺς ἄρχοντας τῆς δυνάμεως καὶ ᾿Αβιάθαρ τὸν ἱερέα, καὶ ἰδοὺ εἰσὶν ἐσθίοντες καὶ πίνοντες ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπαν· ζήτω ὁ βασιλεὺς ᾿Αδωνίας. 26 καὶ ἐμὲ αὐτὸν τὸν δοῦλόν σου καὶ Σαδὼκ τὸν ἱερέα καὶ Βαναίαν υἱὸν ᾿Ιωδαὲ καὶ Σαλωμὼν τὸν δοῦλόν σου οὐκ ἐκάλεσεν. 27 εἰ διὰ τοῦ κυρίου μου τοῦ βασιλέως γέγονε τὸ ρῆμα τοῦτο καὶ οὐκ ἐγνώρισας τῷ δούλῳ σου τίς καθήσεται ἐπὶ τὸν θρόνον τοῦ κυρίου μου τοῦ βασιλέως μετ᾿ αὐτόν; 28 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυὶδ καὶ εἶπε· καλέσατέ μοι τὴν Βηρσαβεέ· καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ἐνώπιον τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἔστη ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ. 29 καὶ ὤμοσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ εἶπε· ζῇ Κύριος, ὃς ἐλυτρώσατο τὴν ψυχήν μου ἐκ πάσης θλίψεως, 30 ὅτι καθὼς ὤμοσά σοι ἐν Κυρίῳ Θεῷ ᾿Ισραὴλ λέγων ὅτι Σαλωμὼν ὁ υἱός σου βασιλεύσει μετ᾿ ἐμὲ καὶ αὐτὸς καθήσεται ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου μου ἀντ᾿ ἐμοῦ, ὅτι οὕτω ποιήσω τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ταύτῃ. 31 καὶ ἔκυψε Βηρσαβεὲ ἐπὶ πρόσωπον ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν καὶ προσεκύνησε τῷ βασιλεῖ καὶ εἶπε· ζήτω ὁ κύριός μου ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυὶδ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα. 32 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυίδ· καλέσατέ μοι Σαδὼκ τὸν ἱερέα καὶ Νάθαν τὸν προφήτην καὶ Βαναίαν υἱὸν ᾿Ιωδαέ· καὶ εἰσῆλθον ἐνώπιον τοῦ βασιλέως, 33 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς αὐτοῖς· λάβετε τοὺς δούλους τοῦ κυρίου ὑμῶν μεθ᾿ ὑμῶν καὶ ἐπιβιβάσατε τὸν υἱόν μου Σαλωμὼν ἐπὶ τὴν ἡμίονον τὴν ἐμὴν καὶ καταγάγετε αὐτὸν εἰς τὴν Γιών, 34 καὶ χρισάτω αὐτὸν ἐκεῖ Σαδὼκ ὁ ἱερεὺς καὶ Νάθαν ὁ προφήτης εἰς βασιλέα ἐπὶ ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ σαλπίσατε κερατίνῃ καὶ ἐρεῖτε· ζήτω ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμών. 35 καὶ καθήσεται ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου μου καὶ βασιλεύσει ἀντ᾿ ἐμοῦ, καὶ ἐγὼ ἐνετειλάμην τοῦ εἶναι εἰς ἡγούμενον ἐπὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ ᾿Ιούδαν. 36 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη Βαναίας υἱὸς ᾿Ιωδαὲ τῷ βασιλεῖ καὶ εἶπε· γένοιτο οὕτως· πιστώσαι Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς τοῦ κυρίου μου τοῦ βασιλέως. 37 καθὼς ἦν Κύριος μετὰ τοῦ κυρίου μου τοῦ βασιλέως, οὕτως εἴη μετὰ Σαλωμὼν καὶ μεγαλύναι τὸν θρόνον αὐτοῦ ὑπὲρ τὸν θρόνον τοῦ κυρίου μου τοῦ βασιλέως Δαυίδ. 38 καὶ κατέβη Σαδὼκ ὁ ἱερεὺς καὶ Νάθαν ὁ προφήτης καὶ Βαναίας υἱὸς ᾿Ιωδαὲ καὶ ὁ Χερεθὶ καὶ ὁ Φελεθὶ καὶ ἐπεκάθισαν τὸν Σαλωμὼν ἐπὶ τὴν ἡμίονον τοῦ βασιλέως Δαυὶδ καὶ ἀπήγαγον αὐτὸν εἰς τὴν Γιών. 39 καὶ ἔλαβε Σαδὼκ ὁ ἱερεὺς τὸ κέρας τοῦ ἐλαίου ἐκ τῆς σκηνῆς καὶ ἔχρισε τὸν Σαλωμὼν καὶ ἐσάλπισε τῇ κερατίνῃ, καὶ εἶπε πᾶς ὁ λαός· ζήτω ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμών. 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 ᾿Αδωνίας καὶ πάντες οἱ κλητοὶ αὐτοῦ, καὶ αὐτοὶ συνετέλεσαν φαγεῖν· καὶ ἤκουσεν ᾿Ιωὰβ τὴν φωνὴν τῆς κερατίνης καὶ εἶπε· τίς ἡ φωνὴ τῆς πόλεως ἠχούσης; 42 ἔτι αὐτοῦ λαλοῦντος καὶ ἰδοὺ ᾿Ιωνάθαν υἱὸς ᾿Αβιάθαρ τοῦ ἱερέως εἰσῆλθε, καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Αδωνίας· εἴσελθε, ὅτι ἀνὴρ δυνάμεως εἶ σύ, καὶ ἀγαθὰ εὐαγγέλισαι. 43 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη ᾿Ιωνάθαν καὶ εἶπε· καὶ μάλα ὁ κύριος ἡμῶν ὁ βασιλεὺς Δαυὶδ ἐβασίλευσε τὸν Σαλωμών· 44 καὶ ἀπέστειλε μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ ὁ βασιλεὺς τὸν Σαδὼκ τὸν ἱερέα καὶ Νάθαν τὸν προφήτην καὶ Βαναίαν τὸν υἱὸν ᾿Ιωδαὲ καὶ τὸν Χερεθὶ καὶ τὸν Φελεθὶ καὶ ἐπεκάθισαν αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τὴν ἡμίονον τοῦ βασιλέως· 45 καὶ ἔχρισαν αὐτὸν Σαδὼκ ὁ ἱερεὺς καὶ Νάθαν ὁ προφήτης ἐν τῇ Γιών, καὶ ἀνέβησαν ἐκεῖθεν εὐφραινόμενοι καὶ ἤχησεν ἡ πόλις· αὕτη ἡ φωνὴ ἣν ἠκούσατε. 46 καὶ ἐκάθισε Σαλωμὼν ἐπὶ θρόνον βασιλείας, 47 καὶ εἰσῆλθον οἱ δοῦλοι τοῦ βασιλέως εὐλογῆσαι τὸν κύριον ἡμῶν τὸν βασιλέα Δαυὶδ λέγοντες· ἀγαθύναι ὁ Θεὸς τὸ ὄνομα Σαλωμὼν ὑπὲρ τὸ ὄνομά σου καὶ μεγαλύναι τὸν θρόνον αὐτοῦ ὑπὲρ τὸν θρόνον σου· καὶ προσεκύνησεν ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐπὶ τὴν κοίτην, 48 καί γε οὕτως εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεύς· εὐλογητὸς Κύριος ὁ Θεὸς ᾿Ισραήλ, ὃς ἔδωκε σήμερον ἐκ τοῦ σπέρματός μου καθήμενον ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου μου, καὶ οἱ ὀφθαλμοί μου βλέπουσι.
49 Καὶ ἐξέστησαν πάντες οἱ κλητοὶ τοῦ ᾿Αδωνίου καὶ ἦλθον ἀνὴρ εἰς τὴν ὁδὸν αὐτοῦ. 50 καὶ ᾿Αδωνίας ἐφοβήθη ἀπὸ προσώπου Σαλωμὼν καὶ ἀνέστη καὶ ἀπῆλθε καὶ ἐπελάβετο τῶν κεράτων τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου. 51 καὶ ἀνηγγέλη τῷ Σαλωμὼν λέγοντες· ἰδοὺ ᾿Αδωνίας ἐφοβήθη τὸν βασιλέα Σαλωμὼν καὶ κατέχει τῶν κεράτων τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου λέγων· ὀμοσάτω μοι σήμερον Σαλωμών, εἰ οὐ θανατώσει τὸν δοῦλον αὐτοῦ ἐν ρομφαίᾳ. 52 καὶ εἶπε Σαλωμών· ἐὰν γένηται εἰς υἱὸν δυνάμεων, εἰ πεσεῖται τῶν τριχῶν αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν· καὶ ἐὰν κακία εὑρεθῇ ἐν αὐτῷ, θανατωθήσεται. 53 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμὼν καὶ κατήνεγκαν αὐτὸν ἀπάνωθεν τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου· καὶ εἰσῆλθε καὶ προσεκύνησε τῷ βασιλεῖ Σαλωμών, καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Σαλωμών· δεῦρο εἰς τὸν οἶκόν σου.
