1 Kings 1:21

Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

1 Kings 1:21  (King James Version)
Otherwise it shall come to pass, when my lord the king shall sleep with his fathers, that I and my son Solomon shall be counted offenders.
 


sleep
2:10 Genesis 15:15 ; Deuteronomy 31:16

that I
That is, when Adonijah is established on the throne, I and my son Solomon shall be put to death as state criminals. The history of the world demonstrates, that the lust of dominion has tempted men to commit the most enormous crimes. A father has destroyed his son, a son deposed a father, and a brother murdered a brother, in order to obtain a crown!

offenders
Hebrew sinners.
