The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
21 The very next day they butchered the sacrificial animals and offered in the worship of Israel to God a thousand bulls, a thousand rams, a thousand sheep, and in addition drink offerings and many other sacrifices. 21 The next day they made sacrifices to the LORD and presented burnt offerings to him: a thousand bulls, a thousand rams and a thousand male lambs, together with their drink offerings, and other sacrifices in abundance for all Israel.
22 They feasted all day, eating and drinking before God, exuberant with joy. 22 They ate and drank with great joy in the presence of the LORD that day. Then they acknowledged Solomon son of David as king a second time, anointing him before the LORD to be ruler and Zadok to be priest.
23 Solomon sat on the throne of God as king in place of David his father. And everything went well; all Israel obeyed him. 23 So Solomon sat on the throne of the LORD as king in place of his father David. He prospered and all Israel obeyed him.
24 All the leaders of the people, including all the sons of King David, accepted Solomon as their king and promised their loyalty. 24 All the officers and mighty men, as well as all of King David's sons, pledged their submission to King Solomon.
25 Solomon rode high on a crest of popular acclaim - it was all God's doing. God gave him position and honor beyond any king in Israel before him. 25 The LORD highly exalted Solomon in the sight of all Israel and bestowed on him royal splendor such as no king over Israel ever had before.
26 David son of Jesse ruled over all Israel. 26 David son of Jesse was king over all Israel.
27 He was king for forty years. He ruled from Hebron seven years and from Jerusalem thirty-three. 27 He ruled over Israel forty years--seven in Hebron and thirty-three in Jerusalem.
28 He died at a ripe old age, full of days, wealth, and glory. His son Solomon ruled after him. 28 He died at a good old age, having enjoyed long life, wealth and honor. His son Solomon succeeded him as king.
29 The history of David the king, from start to finish, is written in the chronicles of Samuel the seer, Nathan the prophet, and Gad the seer, 29 As for the events of King David's reign, from beginning to end, they are written in the records of Samuel the seer, the records of Nathan the prophet and the records of Gad the seer,
30 including a full account of his rule, his exploits, and the times through which he and Israel and the surrounding kingdoms passed. 30 together with the details of his reign and power, and the circumstances that surrounded him and Israel and the kingdoms of all the other lands.
