1 Kings 2


1  Now the days3117 of David1732 drew nigh7126 that he should die;4191 and he charged6680 853 Solomon8010 his son,1121 saying,559

2  I595 go1980 the way1870 of all3605 the earth:776 be thou strong2388 therefore, and show1961 thyself a man;376

3  And keep8104 853 the charge4931 of the LORD3068 thy God,430 to walk1980 in his ways,1870 to keep8104 his statutes,2708 and his commandments,4687 and his judgments,4941 and his testimonies,5715 as it is written3789 in 853 the law8451 of Moses,4872 that4616 thou mayest prosper7919 in all3605 that834 thou doest,6213 and whithersoever3605 834 8033 thou turnest6437 thyself:

4  That4616 the LORD3068 may continue6965 853 his word1697 which834 he spoke1696 concerning5921 me, saying,559 If518 thy children1121 take heed8104 to 853 their way,1870 to walk1980 before6440 me in truth571 with all3605 their heart3824 and with all3605 their soul,5315 there shall not3808 fail3772 thee (said559 he) a man376 on4480 5921 the throne3678 of Israel.3478

5  Moreover1571 thou859 knowest3045 also 853 what834 Joab3097 the son1121 of Zeruiah6870 did6213 to me, and what834 he did6213 to the two8147 captains8269 of the hosts6635 of Israel,3478 unto Abner74 the son1121 of Ner,5369 and unto Amasa6021 the son1121 of Jether,3500 whom he slew,2026 and shed7760 the blood1818 of war4421 in peace,7965 and put5414 the blood1818 of war4421 upon his girdle2290 that834 was about his loins,4975 and in his shoes5275 that834 were on his feet.7272

6  Do6213 therefore according to thy wisdom,2451 and let not3808 his hoar head7872 go down3381 to the grave7585 in peace.7965

7  But show6213 kindness2617 unto the sons1121 of Barzillai1271 the Gileadite,1569 and let them be1961 of those that eat398 at thy table:7979 for3588 so3651 they came7126 to413 me when I fled1272 because4480 6440 of Absalom53 thy brother.251

8  And, behold,2009 thou hast with5973 thee Shimei8096 the son1121 of Gera,1617 a Benjamite1145 of Bahurim,4480 980 which1931 cursed7043 me with a grievous4834 curse7045 in the day3117 when I went1980 to Mahanaim:4266 but he1931 came down3381 to meet7125 me at Jordan,3383 and I swore7650 to him by the LORD,3068 saying,559 I will not518 put thee to death4191 with the sword.2719

9  Now6258 therefore hold him not guiltless:408 5352 for3588 thou859 art a wise2450 man,376 and knowest3045 853 what834 thou oughtest to do6213 unto him; but his 853 hoar head7872 bring thou down3381 to the grave7585 with blood.1818

10  So David1732 slept7901 with5973 his fathers,1 and was buried6912 in the city5892 of David.1732

11  And the days3117 that834 David1732 reigned4427 over5921 Israel3478 were forty705 years:8141 seven7651 years8141 reigned4427 he in Hebron,2275 and thirty7970 and three7969 years8141 reigned4427 he in Jerusalem.3389

12  Then sat3427 Solomon8010 upon5921 the throne3678 of David1732 his father;1 and his kingdom4438 was established3559 greatly.3966

13  And Adonijah138 the son1121 of Haggith2294 came935 to413 Bath-sheba1339 the mother517 of Solomon.8010 And she said,559 Comest935 thou peaceably?7965 And he said,559 Peaceably.7965

14  He said559 moreover, I have somewhat to say1697 unto413 thee. And she said,559 Say on.1696

15  And he said,559 Thou859 knowest3045 that3588 the kingdom4410 was1961 mine, and that all3605 Israel3478 set7760 their faces6440 on5921 me, that I should reign:4427 howbeit the kingdom4410 is turned about,5437 and is become1961 my brother's:251 for3588 it was1961 his from the LORD.4480 3068

16  And now6258 I595 ask7592 one259 petition7596 of4480 854 thee, deny7725 853 6440 me not.408 And she said559 unto413 him, Say on.1696

17  And he said,559 Speak,559 I pray thee,4994 unto Solomon8010 the king,4428 (for3588 he will not3808 say thee nay,)7725 853 6440 that he give5414 me 853 Abishag49 the Shunammite7767 to wife.802

18  And Bath-sheba1339 said,559 Well;2896 I595 will speak1696 for5921 thee unto413 the king.4428

19  Bath-sheba1339 therefore went935 unto413 king4428 Solomon,8010 to speak1696 unto him for5921 Adonijah.138 And the king4428 rose up6965 to meet7122 her, and bowed himself7812 unto her, and sat down3427 on5921 his throne,3678 and caused a seat3678 to be set7760 for the king's4428 mother;517 and she sat3427 on his right hand.3225

20  Then she said,559 I595 desire7592 one259 small6996 petition7596 of4480 thee; I pray thee, say me not nay.408 7725 853 6440 And the king4428 said559 unto her, Ask on,7592 my mother:517 for3588 I will not3808 say thee nay.7725 853 6440

21  And she said,559 Let 853 Abishag49 the Shunammite7767 be given5414 to Adonijah138 thy brother251 to wife.802

22  And king4428 Solomon8010 answered6030 and said559 unto his mother,517 And why4100 dost thou859 ask7592 853 Abishag49 the Shunammite7767 for Adonijah?138 ask7592 for him 853 the kingdom4410 also; for3588 he1931 is mine4480 elder1419 brother;251 even for him, and for Abiathar54 the priest,3548 and for Joab3097 the son1121 of Zeruiah.6870

23  Then king4428 Solomon8010 swore7650 by the LORD,3068 saying,559 God430 do6213 so3541 to me, and more3254 also,3541 if3588 Adonijah138 have not spoken1696 853 this2088 word1697 against his own life.5315

24  Now6258 therefore, as the LORD3068 liveth,2416 which834 hath established3559 me, and set3427 me on5921 the throne3678 of David1732 my father,1 and who834 hath made6213 me a house,1004 as834 he promised,1696 Adonijah138 shall be put to death4191 this day.3117

25  And king4428 Solomon8010 sent7971 by the hand3027 of Benaiah1141 the son1121 of Jehoiada;3077 and he fell6293 upon him that he died.4191

26  And unto Abiathar54 the priest3548 said559 the king,4428 Get1980 thee to Anathoth,6068 unto5921 thine own fields;7704 for3588 thou859 art worthy376 of death:4194 but I will not3808 at this2088 time3117 put thee to death,4191 because3588 thou didst bear5375 853 the ark727 of the Lord136 GOD3068 before6440 David1732 my father,1 and because3588 thou hast been afflicted6031 in all3605 wherein834 my father1 was afflicted.6031

27  So Solomon8010 thrust out1644 853 Abiathar54 from being4480 1961 priest3548 unto the LORD;3068 that he might fulfill4390 853 the word1697 of the LORD,3068 which834 he spoke1696 concerning5921 the house1004 of Eli5941 in Shiloh.7887

28  Then tidings8052 came935 to5704 Joab:3097 for3588 Joab3097 had turned5186 after310 Adonijah,138 though he turned5186 not3808 after310 Absalom.53 And Joab3097 fled5127 unto413 the tabernacle168 of the LORD,3068 and caught hold2388 on the horns7161 of the altar.4196

29  And it was told5046 king4428 Solomon8010 that3588 Joab3097 was fled5127 unto413 the tabernacle168 of the LORD;3068 and, behold,2009 he is by681 the altar.4196 Then Solomon8010 sent7971 853 Benaiah1141 the son1121 of Jehoiada,3077 saying,559 Go,1980 fall6293 upon him.

30  And Benaiah1141 came935 to413 the tabernacle168 of the LORD,3068 and said559 unto413 him, Thus3541 saith559 the king,4428 Come forth.3318 And he said,559 Nay;3808 but3588 I will die4191 here.6311 And Benaiah1141 brought7725 853 the king4428 word1697 again, saying,559 Thus3541 said1696 Joab,3097 and thus3541 he answered6030 me.

31  And the king4428 said559 unto him, Do6213 as834 he hath said,1696 and fall6293 upon him, and bury6912 him; that thou mayest take away5493 the innocent2600 blood,1818 which834 Joab3097 shed,8210 from4480 5921 me, and from4480 5921 the house1004 of my father.1

32  And the LORD3068 shall return7725 853 his blood1818 upon5921 his own head,7218 who834 fell6293 upon two8147 men376 more righteous6662 and better2896 than4480 he, and slew2026 them with the sword,2719 my father1 David1732 not3808 knowing3045 thereof, to wit, 853 Abner74 the son1121 of Ner,5369 captain8269 of the host6635 of Israel,3478 and Amasa6021 the son1121 of Jether,3500 captain8269 of the host6635 of Judah.3063

33  Their blood1818 shall therefore return7725 upon the head7218 of Joab,3097 and upon the head7218 of his seed2233 forever:5769 but upon David,1732 and upon his seed,2233 and upon his house,1004 and upon his throne,3678 shall there be1961 peace7965 forever5704 5769 from4480 5973 the LORD.3068

34  So Benaiah1141 the son1121 of Jehoiada3077 went up,5927 and fell6293 upon him, and slew4191 him: and he was buried6912 in his own house1004 in the wilderness.4057

35  And the king4428 put5414 853 Benaiah1141 the son1121 of Jehoiada3077 in his room8478 over5921 the host:6635 and Zadok6659 the priest3548 did the king4428 put5414 in the room8478 of Abiathar.54

36  And the king4428 sent7971 and called7121 for Shimei,8096 and said559 unto him, Build1129 thee a house1004 in Jerusalem,3389 and dwell3427 there,8033 and go not forth3808 3318 thence4480 8033 any575 whither.575

37  For it shall be,1961 that on the day3117 thou goest out,3318 and passest over5674 853 the brook5158 Kidron,6939 thou shalt know3045 for certain3045 that3588 thou shalt surely die:4191 4191 thy blood1818 shall be1961 upon thine own head.7218

38  And Shimei8096 said559 unto the king,4428 The saying1697 is good:2896 as834 my lord113 the king4428 hath said,1696 so3651 will thy servant5650 do.6213 And Shimei8096 dwelt3427 in Jerusalem3389 many7227 days.3117

39  And it came to pass1961 at the end4480 7093 of three7969 years,8141 that two8147 of the servants5650 of Shimei8096 ran away1272 unto413 Achish397 son1121 of Maachah4601 king4428 of Gath.1661 And they told5046 Shimei,8096 saying,559 Behold,2009 thy servants5650 be in Gath.1661

40  And Shimei8096 arose,6965 and saddled2280 853 his ass,2543 and went1980 to Gath1661 to413 Achish397 to seek1245 853 his servants:5650 and Shimei8096 went,1980 and brought935 853 his servants5650 from Gath.4480 1661

41  And it was told5046 Solomon8010 that3588 Shimei8096 had gone1980 from Jerusalem4480 3389 to Gath,1661 and was come again.7725

42  And the king4428 sent7971 and called7121 for Shimei,8096 and said559 unto413 him, Did I not3808 make thee to swear7650 by the LORD,3068 and protested5749 unto thee, saying,559 Know for a certain,3045 3045 on the day3117 thou goest out,3318 and walkest abroad1980 any575 whither,575 that3588 thou shalt surely die?4191 4191 and thou saidst559 unto413 me, The word1697 that I have heard8085 is good.2896

43  Why4069 then hast thou not3808 kept8104 853 the oath7621 of the LORD,3068 and the commandment4687 that834 I have charged6680 thee5921 with?

44  The king4428 said559 moreover to413 Shimei,8096 Thou859 knowest3045 853 all3605 the wickedness7451 which834 thine heart3824 is privy to,3045 that834 thou didst6213 to David1732 my father:1 therefore the LORD3068 shall return7725 853 thy wickedness7451 upon thine own head;7218

45  And king4428 Solomon8010 shall be blessed,1288 and the throne3678 of David1732 shall be1961 established3559 before6440 the LORD3068 forever.5704 5769

46  So the king4428 commanded6680 853 Benaiah1141 the son1121 of Jehoiada;3077 which went out,3318 and fell6293 upon him, that he died.4191 And the kingdom4467 was established3559 in the hand3027 of Solomon.8010


1 καὶ ἤγγισαν αἱ ἡμέραι Δαυιδ ἀποθανεῖν αὐτόν καὶ ἐνετείλατο τῷ Σαλωμων υἱῷ αὐτοῦ λέγων

2 ἐγώ εἰμι πορεύομαι ἐν ὁδῷ πάσης τῆς γῆς καὶ ἰσχύσεις καὶ ἔσῃ εἰς ἄνδρα

3 καὶ φυλάξεις τὴν φυλακὴν κυρίου τοῦ θεοῦ σου τοῦ πορεύεσθαι ἐν ταῖς ὁδοῖς αὐτοῦ φυλάσσειν τὰς ἐντολὰς αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ δικαιώματα καὶ τὰ κρίματα τὰ γεγραμμένα ἐν νόμῳ Μωυσέως ἵνα συνίῃς ἃ ποιήσεις κατὰ πάντα ὅσα ἂν ἐντείλωμαί σοι

4 ἵνα στήσῃ κύριος τὸν λόγον αὐτοῦ ὃν ἐλάλησεν λέγων ἐὰν φυλάξωσιν οἱ υἱοί σου τὴν ὁδὸν αὐτῶν πορεύεσθαι ἐνώπιον ἐμοῦ ἐν ἀληθείᾳ ἐν ὅλῃ καρδίᾳ αὐτῶν καὶ ἐν ὅλῃ ψυχῇ αὐτῶν λέγων οὐκ ἐξολεθρευθήσεταί σοι ἀνὴρ ἐπάνωθεν θρόνου Ισραηλ

5 καί γε σὺ ἔγνως ὅσα ἐποίησέν μοι Ιωαβ υἱὸς Σαρουιας ὅσα ἐποίησεν τοῖς δυσὶν ἄρχουσιν τῶν δυνάμεων Ισραηλ τῷ Αβεννηρ υἱῷ Νηρ καὶ τῷ Αμεσσαϊ υἱῷ Ιεθερ καὶ ἀπέκτεινεν αὐτοὺς καὶ ἔταξεν τὰ αἵματα πολέμου ἐν εἰρήνῃ καὶ ἔδωκεν αἷμα ἀθῷον ἐν τῇ ζώνῃ αὐτοῦ τῇ ἐν τῇ ὀσφύι αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐν τῷ ὑποδήματι αὐτοῦ τῷ ἐν τῷ ποδὶ αὐτοῦ

6 καὶ ποιήσεις κατὰ τὴν σοφίαν σου καὶ οὐ κατάξεις τὴν πολιὰν αὐτοῦ ἐν εἰρήνῃ εἰς ᾅδου

7 καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς Βερζελλι τοῦ Γαλααδίτου ποιήσεις ἔλεος καὶ ἔσονται ἐν τοῖς ἐσθίουσιν τὴν τράπεζάν σου ὅτι οὕτως ἤγγισάν μοι ἐν τῷ με ἀποδιδράσκειν ἀπὸ προσώπου Αβεσσαλωμ τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ σου

8 καὶ ἰδοὺ μετὰ σοῦ Σεμεϊ υἱὸς Γηρα υἱὸς τοῦ Ιεμενι ἐκ Βαουριμ 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 Δαυιδ μετὰ τῶν πατέρων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐτάφη ἐν πόλει Δαυιδ

11 καὶ αἱ ἡμέραι ἃς ἐβασίλευσεν Δαυιδ ἐπὶ τὸν Ισραηλ τεσσαράκοντα ἔτη ἐν Χεβρων ἐβασίλευσεν ἔτη ἑπτὰ καὶ ἐν Ιερουσαλημ τριάκοντα τρία ἔτη

12 καὶ Σαλωμων ἐκάθισεν ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου Δαυιδ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ υἱὸς ἐτῶν δώδεκα καὶ ἡτοιμάσθη ἡ βασιλεία αὐτοῦ σφόδρα

13 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν Αδωνιας υἱὸς Αγγιθ πρὸς Βηρσαβεε μητέρα Σαλωμων καὶ προσεκύνησεν αὐτῇ ἡ δὲ εἶπεν εἰρήνη ἡ εἴσοδός σου καὶ εἶπεν εἰρήνη

14 λόγος μοι πρὸς σέ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ λάλησον

15 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῇ σὺ οἶδας ὅτι ἐμοὶ ἦν ἡ βασιλεία καὶ ἐπ᾽ ἐμὲ ἔθετο πᾶς Ισραηλ τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ εἰς βασιλέα καὶ ἐστράφη ἡ βασιλεία καὶ ἐγενήθη τῷ ἀδελφῷ μου ὅτι παρὰ κυρίου ἐγένετο αὐτῷ

16 καὶ νῦν αἴτησιν μίαν ἐγὼ αἰτοῦμαι παρὰ σοῦ μὴ ἀποστρέψῃς τὸ πρόσωπόν σου καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Βηρσαβεε λάλει

17 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῇ εἰπὸν δὴ πρὸς Σαλωμων τὸν βασιλέα ὅτι οὐκ ἀποστρέψει τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ ἀπὸ σοῦ καὶ δώσει μοι τὴν Αβισακ τὴν Σωμανῖτιν εἰς γυναῖκα

18 καὶ εἶπεν Βηρσαβεε καλῶς ἐγὼ λαλήσω περὶ σοῦ τῷ βασιλεῖ

19 καὶ εἰσῆλθεν Βηρσαβεε πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα Σαλωμων λαλῆσαι αὐτῷ περὶ Αδωνιου καὶ ἐξανέστη ὁ βασιλεὺς εἰς ἀπαντὴν αὐτῇ καὶ κατεφίλησεν αὐτὴν καὶ ἐκάθισεν ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου αὐτοῦ 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 ὅτι οὐκ ἀποστρέψω σε

21 καὶ εἶπεν δοθήτω δὲ Αβισακ ἡ Σωμανῖτις τῷ Αδωνια τῷ ἀδελφῷ σου εἰς γυναῖκα

22 καὶ ἀπεκρίθη Σαλωμων ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ εἶπεν τῇ μητρὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἵνα τί σὺ ᾔτησαι τὴν Αβισακ τῷ Αδωνια καὶ αἴτησαι αὐτῷ τὴν βασιλείαν ὅτι οὗτος ἀδελφός μου ὁ μέγας ὑπὲρ ἐμέ καὶ αὐτῷ Αβιαθαρ ὁ ἱερεὺς καὶ αὐτῷ Ιωαβ ὁ υἱὸς Σαρουιας ὁ ἀρχιστράτηγος ἑταῖρος

23 καὶ ὤμοσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμων κατὰ τοῦ κυρίου λέγων τάδε ποιήσαι μοι ὁ θεὸς καὶ τάδε προσθείη ὅτι κατὰ τῆς ψυχῆς αὐτοῦ ἐλάλησεν Αδωνιας τὸν λόγον τοῦτον

24 καὶ νῦν ζῇ κύριος ὃς ἡτοίμασέν με καὶ ἔθετό με ἐπὶ τὸν θρόνον Δαυιδ τοῦ πατρός μου καὶ αὐτὸς ἐποίησέν μοι οἶκον καθὼς ἐλάλησεν κύριος ὅτι σήμερον θανατωθήσεται Αδωνιας

25 καὶ ἐξαπέστειλεν Σαλωμων ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐν χειρὶ Βαναιου υἱοῦ Ιωδαε καὶ ἀνεῖλεν αὐτόν καὶ ἀπέθανεν Αδωνιας ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ

26 καὶ τῷ Αβιαθαρ τῷ ἱερεῖ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεύς ἀπότρεχε σὺ εἰς Αναθωθ εἰς ἀγρόν σου ὅτι ἀνὴρ θανάτου εἶ σὺ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ταύτῃ καὶ οὐ θανατώσω σε ὅτι ἦρας τὴν κιβωτὸν τῆς διαθήκης κυρίου ἐνώπιον τοῦ πατρός μου καὶ ὅτι ἐκακουχήθης ἐν ἅπασιν οἷς ἐκακουχήθη ὁ πατήρ μου

27 καὶ ἐξέβαλεν Σαλωμων τὸν Αβιαθαρ τοῦ μὴ εἶναι ἱερέα τοῦ κυρίου πληρωθῆναι τὸ ῥῆμα κυρίου ὃ ἐλάλησεν ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον Ηλι ἐν Σηλωμ

28 καὶ ἡ ἀκοὴ ἦλθεν ἕως Ιωαβ τοῦ υἱοῦ Σαρουιας ὅτι Ιωαβ ἦν κεκλικὼς ὀπίσω Αδωνιου καὶ ὀπίσω Σαλωμων οὐκ ἔκλινεν καὶ ἔφυγεν Ιωαβ εἰς τὸ σκήνωμα τοῦ κυρίου καὶ κατέσχεν τῶν κεράτων τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου

29 καὶ ἀπηγγέλη τῷ Σαλωμων λέγοντες ὅτι ἔφυγεν Ιωαβ εἰς τὴν σκηνὴν τοῦ κυρίου καὶ ἰδοὺ κατέχει τῶν κεράτων τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Σαλωμων πρὸς Ιωαβ λέγων τί γέγονέν σοι ὅτι πέφευγας εἰς τὸ θυσιαστήριον καὶ εἶπεν Ιωαβ ὅτι ἐφοβήθην ἀπὸ προσώπου σου καὶ ἔφυγον πρὸς κύριον καὶ ἀπέστειλεν Σαλωμων ὁ βασιλεὺς τὸν Βαναιου υἱὸν Ιωδαε λέγων πορεύου καὶ ἄνελε αὐτὸν καὶ θάψον αὐτόν

30 καὶ ἦλθεν Βαναιου υἱὸς Ιωδαε πρὸς Ιωαβ εἰς τὴν σκηνὴν τοῦ κυρίου καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ τάδε λέγει ὁ βασιλεύς ἔξελθε καὶ εἶπεν Ιωαβ οὐκ ἐκπορεύομαι ὅτι ὧδε ἀποθανοῦμαι καὶ ἀπέστρεψεν Βαναιας υἱὸς Ιωδαε καὶ εἶπεν τῷ βασιλεῖ λέγων τάδε λελάληκεν Ιωαβ καὶ τάδε ἀποκέκριταί μοι

31 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ βασιλεύς πορεύου καὶ ποίησον αὐτῷ καθὼς εἴρηκεν καὶ ἄνελε αὐτὸν καὶ θάψεις αὐτὸν καὶ ἐξαρεῖς σήμερον τὸ αἷμα ὃ δωρεὰν ἐξέχεεν Ιωαβ ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ καὶ ἀπὸ τοῦ οἴκου τοῦ πατρός μου

32 καὶ ἀπέστρεψεν κύριος τὸ αἷμα τῆς ἀδικίας αὐτοῦ εἰς κεφαλὴν αὐτοῦ ὡς ἀπήντησεν τοῖς δυσὶν ἀνθρώποις τοῖς δικαίοις καὶ ἀγαθοῖς ὑπὲρ αὐτὸν καὶ ἀπέκτεινεν αὐτοὺς ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ καὶ ὁ πατήρ μου Δαυιδ οὐκ ἔγνω τὸ αἷμα αὐτῶν τὸν Αβεννηρ υἱὸν Νηρ ἀρχιστράτηγον Ισραηλ καὶ τὸν Αμεσσα υἱὸν Ιεθερ ἀρχιστράτηγον Ιουδα

33 καὶ ἐπεστράφη τὰ αἵματα αὐτῶν εἰς κεφαλὴν αὐτοῦ καὶ εἰς κεφαλὴν τοῦ σπέρματος αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα καὶ τῷ Δαυιδ καὶ τῷ σπέρματι αὐτοῦ καὶ τῷ οἴκῳ αὐτοῦ καὶ τῷ θρόνῳ αὐτοῦ γένοιτο εἰρήνη ἕως αἰῶνος παρὰ κυρίου

34 καὶ ἀπήντησεν Βαναιου υἱὸς Ιωδαε τῷ Ιωαβ καὶ ἐθανάτωσεν αὐτὸν καὶ ἔθαψεν αὐτὸν ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ αὐτοῦ ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ

35 καὶ ἔδωκεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τὸν Βαναιου υἱὸν Ιωδαε ἀντ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὴν στρατηγίαν καὶ ἡ βασιλεία κατωρθοῦτο ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ τὸν Σαδωκ τὸν ἱερέα ἔδωκεν ὁ βασιλεὺς εἰς ἱερέα πρῶτον ἀντὶ Αβιαθαρ
καὶ ἔδωκεν κύριος φρόνησιν τῷ Σαλωμων καὶ σοφίαν πολλὴν σφόδρα καὶ πλάτος καρδίας ὡς ἡ ἄμμος ἡ παρὰ τὴν θάλασσαν
καὶ ἐπληθύνθη ἡ φρόνησις Σαλωμων σφόδρα ὑπὲρ τὴν φρόνησιν πάντων ἀρχαίων υἱῶν καὶ ὑπὲρ πάντας φρονίμους Αἰγύπτου
καὶ ἔλαβεν τὴν θυγατέρα Φαραω καὶ εἰσήγαγεν αὐτὴν εἰς τὴν πόλιν Δαυιδ ἕως συντελέσαι αὐτὸν τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ καὶ τὸν οἶκον κυρίου ἐν πρώτοις καὶ τὸ τεῖχος Ιερουσαλημ κυκλόθεν ἐν ἑπτὰ ἔτεσιν ἐποίησεν καὶ συνετέλεσεν
καὶ ἦν τῷ Σαλωμων ἑβδομήκοντα χιλιάδες αἴροντες ἄρσιν καὶ ὀγδοήκοντα χιλιάδες λατόμων ἐν τῷ ὄρει
καὶ ἐποίησεν Σαλωμων τὴν θάλασσαν καὶ τὰ ὑποστηρίγματα καὶ τοὺς λουτῆρας τοὺς μεγάλους καὶ τοὺς στύλους καὶ τὴν κρήνην τῆς αὐλῆς καὶ τὴν θάλασσαν τὴν χαλκῆν
καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν τὴν ἄκραν καὶ τὰς ἐπάλξεις αὐτῆς καὶ διέκοψεν τὴν πόλιν Δαυιδ οὕτως θυγάτηρ Φαραω ἀνέβαινεν ἐκ τῆς πόλεως Δαυιδ εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτῆς ὃν ᾠκοδόμησεν αὐτῇ τότε ᾠκοδόμησεν τὴν ἄκραν
καὶ Σαλωμων ἀνέφερεν τρεῖς ἐν τῷ ἐνιαυτῷ ὁλοκαυτώσεις καὶ εἰρηνικὰς ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριον ὃ ᾠκοδόμησεν τῷ κυρίῳ καὶ ἐθυμία ἐνώπιον κυρίου καὶ συνετέλεσεν τὸν οἶκον
καὶ οὗτοι οἱ ἄρχοντες οἱ καθεσταμένοι ἐπὶ τὰ ἔργα τοῦ Σαλωμων τρεῖς χιλιάδες καὶ ἑξακόσιοι ἐπιστάται τοῦ λαοῦ τῶν ποιούντων τὰ ἔργα
καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν τὴν Ασσουρ καὶ τὴν Μαγδω καὶ τὴν Γαζερ καὶ τὴν Βαιθωρων τὴν ἐπάνω καὶ τὰ Βααλαθ
πλὴν μετὰ τὸ οἰκοδομῆσαι αὐτὸν τὸν οἶκον τοῦ κυρίου καὶ τὸ τεῖχος Ιερουσαλημ κύκλῳ μετὰ ταῦτα ᾠκοδόμησεν τὰς πόλεις ταύτας
καὶ ἐν τῷ ἔτι Δαυιδ ζῆν ἐνετείλατο τῷ Σαλωμων λέγων ἰδοὺ μετὰ σοῦ Σεμεϊ υἱὸς Γηρα υἱὸς σπέρματος τοῦ Ιεμινι ἐκ Χεβρων
οὗτος κατηράσατό με κατάραν ὀδυνηρὰν ἐν ᾗ ἡμέρᾳ ἐπορευόμην εἰς παρεμβολάς
καὶ αὐτὸς κατέβαινεν εἰς ἀπαντήν μοι ἐπὶ τὸν Ιορδάνην καὶ ὤμοσα αὐτῷ κατὰ τοῦ κυρίου λέγων εἰ θανατωθήσεται ἐν ῥομφαίᾳ
καὶ νῦν μὴ ἀθῳώσῃς αὐτόν ὅτι ἀνὴρ φρόνιμος σὺ καὶ γνώσῃ ἃ ποιήσεις αὐτῷ καὶ κατάξεις τὴν πολιὰν αὐτοῦ ἐν αἵματι εἰς ᾅδου

36 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τὸν Σεμεϊ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ οἰκοδόμησον σεαυτῷ οἶκον ἐν Ιερουσαλημ καὶ κάθου ἐκεῖ καὶ οὐκ ἐξελεύσῃ ἐκεῖθεν οὐδαμοῦ

37 καὶ ἔσται ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῆς ἐξόδου σου καὶ διαβήσῃ τὸν χειμάρρουν Κεδρων γινώσκων γνώσῃ ὅτι θανάτῳ ἀποθανῇ τὸ αἷμά σου ἔσται ἐπὶ τὴν κεφαλήν σου καὶ ὥρκισεν αὐτὸν ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ

38 καὶ εἶπεν Σεμεϊ πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα ἀγαθὸν τὸ ῥῆμα ὃ ἐλάλησας κύριέ μου βασιλεῦ οὕτω ποιήσει ὁ δοῦλός σου καὶ ἐκάθισεν Σεμεϊ ἐν Ιερουσαλημ τρία ἔτη

39 καὶ ἐγενήθη μετὰ τρία ἔτη καὶ ἀπέδρασαν δύο δοῦλοι τοῦ Σεμεϊ πρὸς Αγχους υἱὸν Μααχα βασιλέα Γεθ καὶ ἀπηγγέλη τῷ Σεμεϊ λέγοντες ἰδοὺ οἱ δοῦλοί σου ἐν Γεθ

40 καὶ ἀνέστη Σεμεϊ καὶ ἐπέσαξε τὴν ὄνον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπορεύθη εἰς Γεθ πρὸς Αγχους τοῦ ἐκζητῆσαι τοὺς δούλους αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπορεύθη Σεμεϊ καὶ ἤγαγεν τοὺς δούλους αὐτοῦ ἐκ Γεθ

41 καὶ ἀπηγγέλη τῷ Σαλωμων λέγοντες ὅτι ἐπορεύθη Σεμεϊ ἐξ Ιερουσαλημ εἰς Γεθ καὶ ἀπέστρεψεν τοὺς δούλους αὐτοῦ

42 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν ὁ βασιλεὺς καὶ ἐκάλεσεν τὸν Σεμεϊ καὶ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτόν οὐχὶ ὥρκισά σε κατὰ τοῦ κυρίου καὶ ἐπεμαρτυράμην σοι λέγων ἐν ᾗ ἂν ἡμέρᾳ ἐξέλθῃς ἐξ Ιερουσαλημ καὶ πορευθῇς εἰς δεξιὰ ἢ εἰς ἀριστερά γινώσκων γνώσῃ ὅτι θανάτῳ ἀποθανῇ

43 καὶ τί ὅτι οὐκ ἐφύλαξας τὸν ὅρκον κυρίου καὶ τὴν ἐντολήν ἣν ἐνετειλάμην κατὰ σοῦ

44 καὶ εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς πρὸς Σεμεϊ σὺ οἶδας πᾶσαν τὴν κακίαν σου ἣν ἔγνω ἡ καρδία σου ἃ ἐποίησας τῷ Δαυιδ τῷ πατρί μου καὶ ἀνταπέδωκεν κύριος τὴν κακίαν σου εἰς κεφαλήν σου

45 καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμων ηὐλογημένος καὶ ὁ θρόνος Δαυιδ ἔσται ἕτοιμος ἐνώπιον κυρίου εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα

46 καὶ ἐνετείλατο ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμων τῷ Βαναια υἱῷ Ιωδαε καὶ ἐξῆλθεν καὶ ἀνεῖλεν αὐτόν καὶ ἀπέθανεν
καὶ ἦν ὁ βασιλεὺς Σαλωμων φρόνιμος σφόδρα καὶ σοφός καὶ Ιουδα καὶ Ισραηλ πολλοὶ σφόδρα ὡς ἡ ἄμμος ἡ ἐπὶ τῆς θαλάσσης εἰς πλῆθος ἐσθίοντες καὶ πίνοντες καὶ χαίροντες
καὶ Σαλωμων ἦν ἄρχων ἐν πάσαις ταῖς βασιλείαις καὶ ἦσαν προσφέροντες δῶρα καὶ ἐδούλευον τῷ Σαλωμων πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας τῆς ζωῆς αὐτοῦ
καὶ Σαλωμων ἤρξατο διανοίγειν τὰ δυναστεύματα τοῦ Λιβάνου
καὶ αὐτὸς ᾠκοδόμησεν τὴν Θερμαι ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ
καὶ τοῦτο τὸ ἄριστον τῷ Σαλωμων τριάκοντα κόροι σεμιδάλεως καὶ ἑξήκοντα κόροι ἀλεύρου κεκοπανισμένου δέκα μόσχοι ἐκλεκτοὶ καὶ εἴκοσι βόες νομάδες καὶ ἑκατὸν πρόβατα ἐκτὸς ἐλάφων καὶ δορκάδων καὶ ὀρνίθων ἐκλεκτῶν νομάδων
ὅτι ἦν ἄρχων ἐν παντὶ πέραν τοῦ ποταμοῦ ἀπὸ Ραφι ἕως Γάζης ἐν πᾶσιν τοῖς βασιλεῦσιν πέραν τοῦ ποταμοῦ
καὶ ἦν αὐτῷ εἰρήνη ἐκ πάντων τῶν μερῶν αὐτοῦ κυκλόθεν καὶ κατῴκει Ιουδα καὶ Ισραηλ πεποιθότες ἕκαστος ὑπὸ τὴν ἄμπελον αὐτοῦ καὶ ὑπὸ τὴν συκῆν αὐτοῦ ἐσθίοντες καὶ πίνοντες ἀπὸ Δαν καὶ ἕως Βηρσαβεε πάσας τὰς ἡμέρας Σαλωμων
καὶ οὗτοι οἱ ἄρχοντες τοῦ Σαλωμων Αζαριον υἱὸς Σαδωκ τοῦ ἱερέως καὶ Ορνιου υἱὸς Ναθαν ἄρχων τῶν ἐφεστηκότων καὶ Εδραμ ἐπὶ τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ καὶ Σουβα γραμματεὺς καὶ Βασα υἱὸς Αχιθαλαμ ἀναμιμνῄσκων καὶ Αβι υἱὸς Ιωαβ ἀρχιστράτηγος καὶ Αχιρε υἱὸς Εδραϊ ἐπὶ τὰς ἄρσεις καὶ Βαναια υἱὸς Ιωδαε ἐπὶ τῆς αὐλαρχίας καὶ ἐπὶ τοῦ πλινθείου καὶ Ζαχουρ υἱὸς Ναθαν ὁ σύμβουλος
καὶ ἦσαν τῷ Σαλωμων τεσσαράκοντα χιλιάδες τοκάδες ἵπποι εἰς ἅρματα καὶ δώδεκα χιλιάδες ἱππέων
καὶ ἦν ἄρχων ἐν πᾶσιν τοῖς βασιλεῦσιν ἀπὸ τοῦ ποταμοῦ καὶ ἕως γῆς ἀλλοφύλων καὶ ἕως ὁρίων Αἰγύπτου
Σαλωμων υἱὸς Δαυιδ ἐβασίλευσεν ἐπὶ Ισραηλ καὶ Ιουδα ἐν Ιερουσαλημ

1 Appropinquaverunt autem dies David ut moreretur: præcepitque Salomoni filio suo, dicens:

2 Ego ingredior viam universæ terræ: confortare, et esto vir.

3 Et observa custodias Domini Dei tui, ut ambules in viis ejus: ut custodias cæremonias ejus, et præcepta ejus, et judicia, et testimonia, sicut scriptum est in lege Moysi: ut intelligas universa quæ facis, et quocumque te verteris:

4 ut confirmet Dominus sermones suos quos locutus est de me, dicens: Si custodierint filii tui vias suas, et ambulaverint coram me in veritate, in omni corde suo et in omni anima sua, non auferetur tibi vir de solio Israël.

5 Tu quoque nosti quæ fecerit mihi Joab filius Sarviæ, quæ fecerit duobus principibus exercitus Israël, Abner filio Ner, et Amasæ filio Jether: quos occidit, et effudit sanguinem belli in pace, et posuit cruorem prælii in balteo suo qui erat circa lumbos ejus, et in calceamento suo quod erat in pedibus ejus.

6 Facies ergo juxta sapientiam tuam, et non deduces canitiem ejus pacifice ad inferos.

7 Sed et filiis Berzellai Galaaditis reddes gratiam, eruntque comedentes in mensa tua: occurrerunt enim mihi quando fugiebam a facie Absalom fratris tui.

8 Habes quoque apud te Semei filium Gera filii Jemini de Bahurim, qui maledixit mihi maledictione pessima quando ibam ad castra: sed quia descendit mihi in occursum cum transirem Jordanem, et juravi ei per Dominum, dicens: Non te interficiam gladio:

9 tu noli pati eum esse innoxium. Vir autem sapiens es, ut scias quæ facies ei: deducesque canos ejus cum sanguine ad inferos.

10 Dormivit igitur David cum patribus suis, et sepultus est in civitate David.

11 Dies autem quibus regnavit David super Israël, quadraginta anni sunt: in Hebron regnavit septem annis; in Jerusalem, triginta tribus.

12 Salomon autem sedit super thronum David patris sui, et firmatum est regnum ejus nimis.

13 Et ingressus est Adonias filius Haggith ad Bethsabee matrem Salomonis. Quæ dixit ei: Pacificusne est ingressus tuus? Qui respondit: Pacificus.

14 Addiditque: Sermo mihi est ad te. Cui ait: Loquere. Et ille:

15 Tu, inquit, nosti, quia meum erat regnum, et me præposuerat omnis Israël sibi in regem: sed translatum est regnum, et factum est fratris mei: a Domino enim constitutum est ei.

16 Nunc ergo petitionem unam precor a te: ne confundas faciem meam. Quæ dixit ad eum: Loquere.

17 Et ille ait: Precor ut dicas Salomoni regi (neque enim negare tibi quidquam potest) ut det mihi Abisag Sunamitidem uxorem.

18 Et ait Bethsabee: Bene: ego loquar pro te regi.

19 Venit ergo Bethsabee ad regem Salomonem ut loqueretur ei pro Adonia: et surrexit rex in occursum ejus, adoravitque eam, et sedit super thronum suum: positusque est thronus matri regis, quæ sedit ad dexteram ejus.

20 Dixitque ei: Petitionem unam parvulam ego deprecor a te: ne confundas faciem meam. Et dixit ei rex: Pete, mater mea: neque enim fas est ut avertam faciem tuam.

21 Quæ ait: Detur Abisag Sunamitis Adoniæ fratri tuo uxor.

22 Responditque rex Salomon, et dixit matri suæ: Quare postulas Abisag Sunamitidem Adoniæ? postula ei et regnum: ipse est enim frater meus major me, et habet Abiathar sacerdotem, et Joab filium Sarviæ.

23 Juravit itaque rex Salomon per Dominum, dicens: Hæc faciat mihi Deus, et hæc addat, quia contra animam suam locutus est Adonias verbum hoc.

24 Et nunc vivit Dominus, qui firmavit me, et collocavit me super solium David patris mei, et qui fecit mihi domum, sicut locutus est, quia hodie occidetur Adonias.

25 Misitque rex Salomon per manum Banaiæ filii Jojadæ, qui interfecit eum, et mortuus est.

26 Abiathar quoque sacerdoti dixit rex: Vade in Anathoth ad agrum tuum: equidem vir mortis es: sed hodie te non interficiam, quia portasti arcam Domini Dei coram David patre meo, et sustinuisti laborem in omnibus in quibus laboravit pater meus.

27 Ejecit ergo Salomon Abiathar ut non esset sacerdos Domini, ut impleretur sermo Domini quem locutus est super domum Heli in Silo.

28 Venit autem nuntius ad Joab, quod Joab declinasset post Adoniam, et post Salomonem non declinasset: fugit ergo Joab in tabernaculum Domini, et apprehendit cornu altaris.

29 Nuntiatumque est regi Salomoni quod fugisset Joab in tabernaculum Domini, et esset juxta altare: misitque Salomon Banaiam filium Jojadæ, dicens: Vade, interfice eum.

30 Et venit Banaias ad tabernaculum Domini, et dixit ei: Hæc dicit rex: Egredere. Qui ait: Non egrediar, sed hic moriar. Renuntiavit Banaias regi sermonem, dicens: Hæc locutus est Joab, et hæc respondit mihi.

31 Dixitque ei rex: Fac sicut locutus est, et interfice eum, et sepeli: et amovebis sanguinem innocentem qui effusus est a Joab, a me, et a domo patris mei.

32 Et reddet Dominus sanguinem ejus super caput ejus, quia interfecit duos viros justos, melioresque se: et occidit eos gladio, patre meo David ignorante, Abner filium Ner principem militiæ Israël, et Amasam filium Jether principem exercitus Juda:

33 et revertetur sanguis illorum in caput Joab, et in caput seminis ejus in sempiternum. David autem et semini ejus, et domui, et throno illius, sit pax usque in æternum a Domino.

34 Ascendit itaque Banaias filius Jojadæ, et aggressus eum interfecit: sepultusque est in domo sua in deserto.

35 Et constituit rex Banaiam filium Jojadæ pro eo super exercitum, et Sadoc sacerdotem posuit pro Abiathar.

36 Misit quoque rex, et vocavit Semei: dixitque ei: Ædifica tibi domum in Jerusalem, et habita ibi: et non egredieris inde huc atque illuc.

37 Quacumque autem die egressus fueris, et transieris torrentem Cedron, scito te interficiendum: sanguis tuus erit super caput tuum.

38 Dixitque Semei regi: Bonus sermo: sicut locutus est dominus meus rex, sic faciet servus tuus. Habitavit itaque Semei in Jerusalem diebus multis.

39 Factum est autem post annos tres ut fugerent servi Semei ad Achis filium Maacha regem Geth: nuntiatumque est Semei quod servi ejus issent in Geth.

40 Et surrexit Semei, et stravit asinum suum, ivitque ad Achis in Geth ad requirendum servos suos, et adduxit eos de Geth.

41 Nuntiatum est autem Salomoni quod isset Semei in Geth de Jerusalem, et rediisset.

42 Et mittens vocavit eum, dixitque illi: Nonne testificatus sum tibi per Dominum, et prædixi tibi: Quacumque die egressus ieris huc et illuc, scito te esse moriturum: et respondisti mihi: Bonus sermo, quem audivi?

43 quare ergo non custodisti jusjurandum Domini, et præceptum quod præceperam tibi?

44 Dixitque rex ad Semei: Tu nosti omne malum cujus tibi conscium est cor tuum, quod fecisti David patri meo: reddidit Dominus malitiam tuam in caput tuum:

45 et rex Salomon benedictus, et thronus David erit stabilis coram Domino usque in sempiternum.

46 Jussit itaque rex Banaiæ filio Jojadæ, qui egressus, percussit eum, et mortuus est.
