And all the princes and the mighty men
The princes of the tribes, and the officers of the army:
and all the sons likewise of King David;
as many as were living: and though they were elder than Solomon,
[they] submitted to Solomon the king;
or "gave the hand under" F20 him, promised obedience, and swore allegiance to him, see ( Genesis 24:2 Genesis 24:9 ) .
