And Bathsheba went in unto the king into the chamber
Where he lay, being bedridden; she took Nathan's advice, and directly went to the king's apartment:
and the king was very old:
and decrepit, borne down with the infirmities of old age, though but seventy years of age:
and Abishag the Shunammite ministered unto the king;
she was then waiting upon the king, and serving him with what was necessary and proper for him; and perhaps there was no other in the chamber at that time.
