1 Kings 1:1-6 (King James Version)

View In My Bible
1 Now king David was old and strickena in years; and they covered him with clothes, but he gat no heat . 2 Wherefore his servants said unto him, Let there be sought for my lord the king a young virgin: and let her stand before the king, and let her cherish him, and let her lie in thy bosom, that my lord the king may get heat . 3 So they sought for a fair damsel throughout all the coasts of Israel, and found Abishag a Shunammite, and brought her to the king. 4 And the damsel was very fair, and cherished the king, and ministered to him: but the king knew her not. 5 Then Adonijah the son of Haggith exalted himself, saying , I will be king :b and he prepared him chariots and horsemen, and fifty men to run before him. 6 And his father had not displeased him at any time in saying , Why hast thou done so ? and he also was a very goodly man; and his mother bare him after Absalom.
