1 Kings 1:37

1 Kings 1:37

As the Lord hath been with my lord the king, even so be he
with Solomon
To guide and direct him, protect and defend him, succeed and prosper him the Targum is,

``as the Word of the Lord has been the help of my lord the king, so let him be for the help of Solomon:''

and make his throne greater than the throne of my lord King David:
which he knew would not displease David, who not only had an affectionate regard for Solomon his son, but wished heartily the prosperity of the kingdom of Israel; and the wish on all accounts was grateful to him, though to an envious and ambitious prince it might have been disagreeable.
