1 Kings 2:26-27; 1 Kings 2:35
To Abiathar the priest the king said, "Go back to your fields in Anathoth. You deserve to die, but I will not put you to death now, because you carried the ark of the Sovereign LORD before my father David and shared all my father's hardships."
So Solomon removed Abiathar from the priesthood of the LORD, fulfilling the word the LORD had spoken at Shiloh about the house of Eli.
The king put Benaiah son of Jehoiada over the army in Joab's position and replaced Abiathar with Zadok the priest.
