1 Kings 2:5-16

NLT 5 “And there is something else. You know what Joab son of Zeruiah did to me when he murdered my two army commanders, Abner son of Ner and Amasa son of Jether. He pretended that it was an act of war, but it was done in a time of peace, staining his belt and sandals with innocent blood. NIV 5 “Now you yourself know what Joab son of Zeruiah did to me—what he did to the two commanders of Israel’s armies, Abner son of Ner and Amasa son of Jether. He killed them, shedding their blood in peacetime as if in battle, and with that blood he stained the belt around his waist and the sandals on his feet. NLT 6 Do with him what you think best, but don’t let him grow old and go to his grave in peace. NIV 6 Deal with him according to your wisdom, but do not let his gray head go down to the grave in peace. NLT 7 “Be kind to the sons of Barzillai of Gilead. Make them permanent guests at your table, for they took care of me when I fled from your brother Absalom. NIV 7 “But show kindness to the sons of Barzillai of Gilead and let them be among those who eat at your table. They stood by me when I fled from your brother Absalom. NLT 8 “And remember Shimei son of Gera, the man from Bahurim in Benjamin. He cursed me with a terrible curse as I was fleeing to Mahanaim. When he came down to meet me at the Jordan River, I swore by the LORD that I would not kill him. NIV 8 “And remember, you have with you Shimei son of Gera, the Benjamite from Bahurim, who called down bitter curses on me the day I went to Mahanaim. When he came down to meet me at the Jordan, I swore to him by the LORD: ‘I will not put you to death by the sword.’ NLT 9 But that oath does not make him innocent. You are a wise man, and you will know how to arrange a bloody death for him. ” NIV 9 But now, do not consider him innocent. You are a man of wisdom; you will know what to do to him. Bring his gray head down to the grave in blood.” NLT 10 Then David died and was buried with his ancestors in the City of David. NIV 10 Then David rested with his ancestors and was buried in the City of David. NLT 11 David had reigned over Israel for forty years, seven of them in Hebron and thirty-three in Jerusalem. NIV 11 He had reigned forty years over Israel—seven years in Hebron and thirty-three in Jerusalem. NLT 12 Solomon became king and sat on the throne of David his father, and his kingdom was firmly established. NIV 12 So Solomon sat on the throne of his father David, and his rule was firmly established. NLT 13 One day Adonijah, whose mother was Haggith, came to see Bathsheba, Solomon’s mother. “Have you come with peaceful intentions?” she asked him. “Yes,” he said, “I come in peace. NIV 13 Now Adonijah, the son of Haggith, went to Bathsheba, Solomon’s mother. Bathsheba asked him, “Do you come peacefully?” He answered, “Yes, peacefully.” NLT 14 In fact, I have a favor to ask of you.” “What is it?” she asked. NIV 14 Then he added, “I have something to say to you.” “You may say it,” she replied. NLT 15 He replied, “As you know, the kingdom was rightfully mine; all Israel wanted me to be the next king. But the tables were turned, and the kingdom went to my brother instead; for that is the way the LORD wanted it. NIV 15 “As you know,” he said, “the kingdom was mine. All Israel looked to me as their king. But things changed, and the kingdom has gone to my brother; for it has come to him from the LORD. NLT 16 So now I have just one favor to ask of you. Please don’t turn me down.” “What is it?” she asked. NIV 16 Now I have one request to make of you. Do not refuse me.” “You may make it,” she said.
