1 Kings 2:10-18

Death of David

10 Then 1David slept with his fathers and was buried in 2the city of David.
12 And 5Solomon sat on the throne of David his father, and his kingdom was firmly established.
13 Now Adonijah the son of Haggith came to Bathsheba the mother of Solomon. And she said, "6Do you come peacefully?" And he said, "Peacefully."
14 Then he said, "I have something to say to you." And she said, "Speak."
15 So he said, "You know that 7the kingdom was mine and 8that all Israel expected * me to be king; 9however, the kingdom has turned about and become my brother's, 10for it was his from the LORD.
16 "Now I am making one request of you; do not refuse me." And she said to him, "Speak."
17 Then he said, "Please speak to Solomon the king, for he will not refuse you, that he may give me 11Abishag the Shunammite as a wife."
18 Bathsheba said, "Very well; I will speak to the king for you."
