1 Kings 1:1-10

David in Old Age

1 Now King David was old, advanced in age; and they covered him with clothes, but he could not keep warm.
2 So his servants said to him, "Let them seek a young virgin for my lord the king, and let her aattend * the king and become his nurse; and let her lie in your bosom, that my lord the king may keep warm."
3 So they searched for a beautiful girl throughout all the territory of Israel, and found Abishag the 1Shunammite, and brought her to the king.
4 The girl was very beautiful; and she became the king's nurse and served him, but the king did not bcohabit with her.
5 Now 2Adonijah the son of Haggith exalted himself, saying, "I will be king." So 3he prepared for himself chariots and horsemen with fifty men to run before him.
6 His father had never ccrossed him at any time by asking, "Why have you done so?" And he was also a very handsome * man, and d4he was born after Absalom.
7 eHe had conferred with 5Joab the son of Zeruiah and with 6Abiathar the priest; and following 7Adonijah they helped him.
8 But 8Zadok the priest, 9Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, 10Nathan the prophet, 11Shimei, Rei, and 12the mighty men who belonged to David, were not with Adonijah.
10 But he did not invite Nathan the prophet, Benaiah, the mighty men, and 14Solomon his brother.
