1 And the days of David drew near that he should die: and he addressed his son Solomon, saying, I go the way of all the earth: 2 but be thou strong, and shew thyself a man; 3 and keep the charge of the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, to keep the commandments and the ordinances and the judgements which are written in the law of Moses; that thou mayest understand what thou shalt do in all things that I command thee: 4 that the Lord may confirm his word which he spoke, saying, If thy children shall take heed to their way to walk before me in truth with all their heart, [I promise thee], saying, there shall not fail thee a man on the throne of Israel. 5 Moreover thou knowest all that Joab the son of Saruia did to me, what he did to the two captains of the forces of Israel, to Abenner the son of Ner, and to Amessai the son of Jether, that he slew them, and shed the blood of war in peace, and put innocent blood on hi girdle that was about his loins, and on his sandal that was on his foot. 6 Therefore thou shalt deal [with him] according to thy wisdom, and thou shalt not bring down his grey hairs in peace to the grave. 7 But thou shalt deal kindly with the sons of Berzelli the Galaadite, and they shall be among those that eat at thy table; for thus they drew nigh to me when I fled from the face of thy brother Abessalom. 8 And, behold, [there is] with thee Semei the son of Gera, a Benjamite of Baurim: and he cursed me with a grievous curse in the day when I went into the camp; and he came down to Jordan to meet me, and I swore to him by the Lord, saying, I will not put thee to death with the sword. 9 But thou shalt by no means hold him guiltless, for thou art a wise man, and wilt know what thou shalt do to him, and shalt bring down his grey hairs with blood to the grave. 10 And David slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David. 11 And the days which David reigned over Israel [were] forty years; he reigned seven years in Chebron, and thirty-three years in Jerusalem. 12 And Solomon sat on the throne of his father David, and his kingdom was established greatly. 13 And Adonias the son of Aggith came in to Bersabee the mother of Solomon, and did obeisance to her: and she said, Dost thou enter peaceably? and he said, Peaceably: 14 I have business with thee. And she said to him, Say on. 15 And he said to her, Thou knowest that the kingdom was mine, and all Israel turned their face toward me for a king; but the kingdom was turned [from me] and became my brother’s: for it was [appointed] to him from the Lord. 16 And now I make one request of thee, do not turn away thy face. And Bersabee said to him, Speak [on]. 17 And he said to her, Speak, I pray thee, to king Solomon, for he will not turn away his face from thee, and let him give me Abisag the Somanite for a wife. 18 And Bersabee said, Well; I will speak for thee to the king. 19 And Bersabee went in to king Solomon to speak to him concerning Adonias; and the king rose up to meet her, and kissed her, and sat on the throne, and a throne was set for the mother of the king, and she sat on his right hand. 20 And she said to him, I ask of thee one little request; turn not away my face from thee. And the king said to her, Ask, my mother, and I will not reject thee. 21 And she said, Let, I pray thee, Abisag the Somanite be given to Adonias thy brother to wife. 22 And king Solomon answered and said to his mother, And why hast thou asked Abisag for Adonias? ask for him the kingdom also; for he [is] my elder brother, and he has for his companion Abiathar the priest, and Joab the son of Saruia the commander-in-chief. 23 And king Solomon swore by the Lord, saying, God do so to me, and more also, [if it be not] that Adonias has spoken this word against his own life. 24 And now [as] the Lord lives who has established me, and set me on the throne of my father David, and he has made me a house, as the Lord spoke, this day shall Adonias be put to death. 25 So king Solomon sent by the hand of Banaeas the son of Jodae, and he slew him, and Adonias died in that day. 26 And the king said to Abiathar the priest, Depart thou quickly to Anathoth to thy farm, for thou art worthy of death this day; but I will not slay thee, because thou hast borne the ark of the covenant of the Lord before my father, and because thou was afflicted in all things wherein my father was afflicted. 27 And Solomon removed Abiathar from being a priest of the Lord, that the word of the Lord might be fulfilled, which he spoke concerning the house of Heli in Selom. 28 And the report came to Joab son of Saruia; for Joab had turned after Adonias, and he went not after Solomon: and Joab fled to the tabernacle of the Lord, and caught hold of the horns of the altar. 29 And it was told Solomon, saying, Joab has fled to the tabernacle of the Lord, and lo! he has hold of the horns of the altar. And king Solomon sent to Joab, saying, What ails thee, that thou hast fled to the altar and Joab said, Because I was afraid of thee, and fled for refuge to the Lord. And Solomon sent Banaeas son of Jodae, saying, Go and slay him, and bury him. 30 And Banaeas son of Jodae came to Joab to the tabernacle of the Lord, and said to him, Thus says the king, Come forth. And Joab said, I will not come forth, for I will die here. And Banaeas son of Jodae returned and spoke to the king, saying, Thus has Joab spoken, and thus has he answered me. 31 And the king said to him, Go, and do to him as he has spoken, and kill him: and thou shalt bury him, and thou shalt remove this day the blood which he shed without cause, from me and from the house of my father. 32 And the Lord has returned upon his own head the blood of his unrighteousness, inasmuch as he attacked two men more righteous and better than himself, and slew them with the sword, and my father David knew not of their blood, [even] Abenner the son of Ner the commander-in-chief of Israel, and Amessa the son of Jether the commander-in-chief of Juda. 33 And their blood is returned upon his head, and upon the head of his seed for ever: but to David, and his seed, and his house, and his throne, may there be peace for ever from the Lord. 34 So Banaeas son of Jodae went up, and attacked him, and slew him, and buried him in his house in the wilderness. 35 And the king appointed Banaeas son of Jodae in his place over the host; and the kingdom was established in Jerusalem; and [as for] Sadoc the priest, the king appointed him to be high priest in the room of Abiathar. And Solomon son of David reigned over Israel and Juda in Jerusalem: and the Lord gave understanding to Solomon, and very much wisdom, and largeness of heart, as the sand by the sea-shore. 36 And the king called Semei, and said to him, Build thee a house in Jerusalem, and dwell there, and thou shalt not go out thence any whither. 37 And it shall come to pass in the day that thou shalt go forth and cross over the brook Kedron, know assuredly that thou shalt certainly die: thy blood shall be upon thine head. And the king caused him to swear in that day. 38 And Semei said to the king, Good [is] the word that thou hast spoken, my lord O king: thus will thy servant do. And Semei dwelt in Jerusalem three years. 39 And it came to pass after the three years, that two servants of Semei ran away to Anchus son of Maacha king of Geth: and it was told Semei, saying, Behold, thy servants [are] in Geth. 40 And Semei rose up, and saddled his ass, and went to Geth to Anchus to seek out his servants: and Semei went, and brought his servants out of Geth. 41 And it was told Solomon, saying, Semei is gone out of Jerusalem to Geth, and has brought back his servants. 42 And the king sent and called Semei, and said to him, Did I not adjure thee by the Lord, and testify to thee, saying, In whatsoever day thou shalt go out of Jerusalem, and go to the right or left, know certainly that thou shalt assuredly die? 43 And why hast thou not kept the oath of the Lord, and the commandment which I commanded thee? 44 And the king said to Semei, Thou knowest all thy mischief which thy heart knows, which thou didst to David my father: and the Lord has recompensed thy mischief on thine [own] head. 45 And king Solomon [is] blessed, and the throne of David shall be established before the Lord for ever. 46 And Solomon commanded Banaeas the son of Jodae, and he went forth and slew him. And king Solomon was very prudent and wise: and Juda and Israel [were] very many, as the sand which is by the sea for multitude, eating, and drinking, and rejoicing: and Solomon was chief in all the kingdoms, and they brought gifts, and served Solomon all the days of his life. And Solomon began to open the domains of Libanus, and he built Thermae in the wilderness. And this was the daily provision of Solomon, thirty measures of fine flour, and sixty measures of ground meal, ten choice calves, and twenty oxen from the pastures, and a hundred sheep, besides stags, and does, and choice fed birds. For he ruled in all the country on this side the river, from Raphi unto Gaza, over all the kings on this side the river: and he was at peace on all sides round about; and Juda and Israel dwelt safely, every one under his vine and under his fig tree, eating and drinking and feasting, from Dan even to Bersabee, all the days of Solomon. And these [were] the princes of Solomon; Azariu son of Sadoc the priest, and Orniu son of Nathan chief of the officers, and he went to his house; and Suba the scribe, and Basa son of Achithalam recorder, and Abi son of Joab commander-in-chief, and Achire son of Edrai [was] over the levies, and Banaeas son of Jodae over the household and over the brickwork, and Cachur the son of Nathan [was] counsellor. 46ι And Solomon had forty thousand brood mares for his chariots, and twelve thousand horses. 46κ And he reigned over all the kings from the river and to the land of the Philistines, and to the borders of Egypt: 46λ so Solomon the son of David reigned over Israel and Juda in Jerusalem. ΚΑΙ ἤγγισαν αἱ ἡμέραι Δαυὶδ ἀποθανεῖν αὐτόν, καὶ ἀπεκρίνατο Σαλωμὼν υἱῷ αὐτοῦ λέγων· 2 ἐγώ εἰμι πορεύομαι ἐν ὁδῷ πάσης τῆς γῆς· καὶ ἰσχύσεις καὶ ἔσῃ εἰς ἄνδρα. 3 καὶ φυλάξεις φυλακὴν Κυρίου Θεοῦ σου τοῦ πορεύεσθαι ἐν ταῖς ὁδοῖς αὐτοῦ, φυλάσσειν τὰς ἐντολὰς αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ δικαιώματα καὶ τὰ κρίματα τὰ γεγραμμένα ἐν τῶ νόμῳ Μωυσέως· ἵνα συνήσῃς ἃ ποιήσεις κατὰ πάντα, ὅσα ἂν ἐντείλωμαί σοι, 4 ἵνα στήσῃ Κύριος τὸν λόγον αὐτοῦ, ὃν ἐλάλησε λέγων· ἐὰν φυλάξωσιν οἱ υἱοί σου τὴν ὁδὸν αὐτῶν πορεύεσθαι ἐνώπιόν μου ἐν ἀληθείᾳ ἐν ὅλῃ καρδίᾳ αὐτῶν λέγων· οὐκ ἐξολοθρευθήσεταί σοι ἀνὴρ ἐπάνωθεν θρόνου ᾿Ισραήλ. 5 καί γε σὺ ἔγνως ὅσα ἐποίησέ μοι ᾿Ιωὰβ υἱὸς Σαρουΐας, ὅσα ἐποίησε τοῖς δυσὶν ἄρχουσι τῶν δυνάμεων ᾿Ισραήλ, τῷ ᾿Αβεννὴρ υἱῷ Νὴρ καὶ τῷ ᾿Αμεσσαΐ υἱῷ ᾿Ιεθέρ, καὶ ἀπέκτεινεν αὐτοὺς καὶ ἔταξε τὰ αἵματα πολέμου ἐν εἰρήνῃ καὶ ἔδωκεν αἷμα ἀθῷον ἐν τῇ ζώνῃ αὐτοῦ τῇ ἐν τῇ ὀσφύϊ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐν τῷ ὑποδήματι αὐτοῦ τῷ ἐν τῶ ποδὶ αὐτοῦ· 6 καὶ ποιήσεις κατὰ τὴν σοφίαν σου καὶ οὐ κατάξεις τὴν πολιὰν αὐτοῦ ἐν εἰρήνῃ εἰς ᾅδου· 7 καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς Βερζελλὶ τοῦ Γαλααδίτου ποιήσεις ἔλεος, καὶ ἔσονται ἐν τοῖς ἐσθίουσι τὴν τράπεζάν σου, ὅτι οὕτως ἤγγισάν μοι ἐν τῷ με ἀποδιδράσκειν ἀπὸ προσώπου ᾿Αβεσσαλὼμ τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ σου. 8 καὶ ἰδοὺ μετὰ σοῦ Σεμεΐ υἱὸς Γηρὰ υἱὸς τοῦ ᾿Ιεμενὶ ἐκ Βαουρίμ, καὶ αὐτὸς κατηράσατό με κατάραν ὀδυνηρὰν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ, ᾗ ἐπορευόμην εἰς Παρεμβολάς, καὶ αὐτὸς κατέβη εἰς ἀπαντήν μου εἰς τὸν ᾿Ιορδάνην, καὶ ὤμοσα αὐτῷ ἐν Κυρίῳ λέγων· εἰ θανατώσω σε ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ· 9 καὶ οὐ μὴ ἀθῳώσῃς αὐτόν, ὅτι ἀνὴρ σοφὸς εἶ σὺ καὶ γνώσῃ ἃ ποιήσεις αὐτῷ, καὶ κατάξεις τὴν πολιὰν αὐτοῦ ἐν αἵματι εἰς ᾅδου. 10 καὶ ἐκοιμήθη Δαυὶδ μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐτάφη ἐν πόλει Δαυίδ. 11 καὶ αἱ ἡμέραι, ἃς ἐβασίλευσε Δαυὶδ ἐπὶ τὸν ᾿Ισραὴλ τεσσαράκοντα ἔτη· ἐν Χεβρὼν ἐβασίλευσεν ἑπτὰ ἔτη καὶ ἐν ῾Ιερουσαλὴμ τριάκοντα τρία ἔτη. 12 Καὶ Σαλωμὼν ἐκάθισεν ἐπὶ θρόνου Δαυὶδ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ υἱὸς ἐτῶν δώδεκα καὶ ἡτοιμάσθη ἡ βασιλεία αὐτοῦ σφόδρα. 13 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ᾿Αδωνίας υἱὸς ᾿Αγγὶθ πρὸς Βηρσαβεὲ μητέρα Σαλωμὼν καὶ προσεκύνησεν αὐτῇ. ἡ δὲ εἶπεν· εἰρήνη ἡ εἴσοδός σου; καὶ εἶπεν· εἰρήνη· 14 λόγος μοι πρός σε· καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· λάλησον. 15 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῇ· σὺ οἶδας, ὅτι ἐμοὶ ἦν βασιλεία καὶ ἐπ᾿ ἐμὲ ἔθετο πᾶς ᾿Ισραὴλ τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ εἰς βασιλέα, καὶ ἐστράφη ἡ βασιλεία καὶ ἐγένετο τῷ ἀδελφῷ μου, ὅτι παρὰ Κυρίου ἐγενήθη αὐτῷ· 16 καὶ νῦν αἴτησιν μίαν ἐγὼ αἰτοῦμαι παρὰ σοῦ, μὴ ἀποστρέψῃς τὸ πρόσωπόν σου. καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Βηρσαβεέ· λάλει. 17 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῇ· εἰπὸν δὴ πρὸς Σαλωμὼν τὸν βασιλέα, ὅτι οὐκ ἀποστρέψει τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ σοῦ, καὶ δώσει μοι τὴν ᾿Αβισὰγ τὴν Σωμανῖτιν εἰς γυναῖκα. 18 καὶ εἶπε Βηρσαβεέ· καλῶς· ἐγὼ λαλήσω περὶ σοῦ τῷ βασιλεῖ. 19 καὶ εἰσῆλθε Βηρσαβεὲ πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα Σαλωμὼν λαλῆσαι αὐτῷ περὶ ᾿Αδωνίου. καὶ ἐξανέστη ὁ βασιλεὺς εἰς ἀπαντὴν αὐτῇ καὶ κατεφίλησεν αὐτὴν καὶ ἐκάθισεν ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου, καὶ ἐτέθη θρόνος τῇ μητρὶ τοῦ βασιλέως καὶ ἐκάθισεν ἐκ δεξιῶν αὐτοῦ. 20 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· αἴτησιν μίαν μικρὰν ἐγὼ αἰτοῦμαι παρὰ σοῦ, μὴ ἀποστρέψῃς τὸ πρόσωπόν σου. καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῇ ὁ βασιλεύς· αἴτησαι, μῆτερ ἐμή, καὶ οὐκ ἀποστρέψω σε. 21 καὶ εἶπε· δοθήτω δὴ ᾿Αβισὰγ ἡ Σωμανῖτις τῷ ᾿Αδωνίᾳ τῷ ἀδελφῷ σου εἰς γυναῖκα. 22 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμὼν καὶ εἶπε τῇ μητρὶ αὐτοῦ· καὶ ἱνατί σὺ ᾔτησαι τὴν ᾿Αβισὰγ τῷ ᾿Αδωνίᾳ; καὶ αἴτησαι αὐτῷ τὴν βασιλείαν, ὅτι οὗτος ἀδελφός μου ὁ μέγας ὑπὲρ ἐμέ, καὶ αὐτῷ ᾿Αβιάθαρ ὁ ἱερεὺς καὶ αὐτῷ ᾿Ιωὰβ υἱὸς Σαρουΐας ἀρχιστράτηγος ἑταῖρος. 23 καὶ ὤμοσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμὼν κατὰ τοῦ Κυρίου λέγων· τάδε ποιήσαι μοι ὁ Θεὸς καὶ τάδε προσθείη, ὅτι κατὰ τῆς ψυχῆς αὐτοῦ ἐλάλησεν ᾿Αδωνίας τὸν λόγον τοῦτον· 24 καὶ νῦν ζῇ Κύριος, ὃς ἡτοίμασέ με καὶ ἔθετό με ἐπὶ τὸν θρόνον Δαυὶδ τοῦ πατρός μου, καὶ αὐτὸς ἐποίησέ μοι οἶκον, καθὼς ἐλάλησε Κύριος, ὅτι σήμερον θανατωθήσεται ᾿Αδωνίας. 25 καὶ ἐξαπέστειλεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμὼν ἐν χειρὶ Βαναίου υἱοῦ ᾿Ιωδαὲ καὶ ἀνεῖλεν αὐτόν, καὶ ἀπέθανεν ᾿Αδωνίας ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ. 26 Καὶ τῷ ᾿Αβιάθαρ τῷ ἱερεῖ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεύς· ἀπότρεχε σὺ εἰς ᾿Αναθὼθ εἰς ἀγρόν σου, ὅτι ἀνὴρ θανάτου εἶ σὺ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ταύτῃ, καὶ οὐ θανατώσω σε, ὅτι ᾖρας τὴν κιβωτὸν τῆς διαθήκης Κυρίου ἐνώπιον τοῦ πατρός μου, καὶ ὅτι ἐκακουχήθης ἐν πᾶσιν, οἷς ἐκακουχήθη ὁ πατήρ μου. 27 καὶ ἐξέβαλε Σαλωμὼν τὸν ᾿Αβιάθαρ τοῦ μὴ εἶναι ἱερέα τοῦ Κυρίου, πληρωθῆναι τὸ ρῆμα Κυρίου, ὃ ἐλάλησεν ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον ῾Ηλὶ ἐν Σηλώμ. 28 καὶ ἡ ἀκοὴ ἦλθεν ἕως ᾿Ιωὰβ υἱοῦ Σαρουΐας (ὅτι ᾿Ιωὰβ ἦν κεκλικὼς ὀπίσω ᾿Αδωνίου, καὶ ὀπίσω Σαλωμὼν οὐκ ἔκλινε), καὶ ἔφυγεν ᾿Ιωὰβ εἰς τὸ σκήνωμα τοῦ Κυρίου καὶ κατέσχε τῶν κεράτων τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου. 29 καὶ ἀπηγγέλη τῷ Σαλωμὼν λέγοντες ὅτι πέφυγεν ᾿Ιωὰβ εἰς τὴν σκηνὴν τοῦ Κυρίου καὶ ἰδοὺ κατέχει τῶν κεράτων τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου. καὶ ἀπέστειλε Σαλωμὼν ὁ βασιλεὺς πρὸς ᾿Ιωὰβ λέγων· τί γέγονέ σοι, ὅτι πέφυγας εἰς τὸ θυσιαστήριον; καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Ιωάβ· ὅτι ἐφοβήθην ἀπὸ προσώπου σου, καὶ ἔφυγον πρὸς Κύριον. καὶ ἀπέστειλε Σαλωμὼν τὸν Βαναίου υἱὸν ᾿Ιωδαὲ λέγων· πορεύου καὶ ἄνελε αὐτὸν καὶ θάψον αὐτόν. 30 καὶ ἦλθε Βαναίας υἱὸς ᾿Ιωδαὲ πρὸς ᾿Ιωὰ
