21 Otherwise it shall come to pass, when my lord the king sleepeth with his fathers, that I and my son Solomon shall be counted offenders. 22 As she was yet speaking with the king, Nathan the prophet came. 23 And they told the king, saying: Nathan the prophet is here. And when he was come in before the king, and had worshipped, bowing down to the ground, 24 Nathan said: My lord O king, hast thou said: Let Adonias reign after me, and let him sit upon my throne? 25 Because he is gone down to day, and hath killed oxen, and fatlings, and many rams, and invited all the king's sons, and the captains of the army, and Abiathar the priest: and they are eating and drinking before him, and saying: God save king Adonias:
26 But me thy servant, and Sadoc the priest, and Banaias the son of Joiada, and Solomon thy servant he hath not invited. 27 Is this word come out from my lord the king, and hast thou not told me thy servant who should sit on the throne of my lord the king after him? 28 And king David answered and said: Call to me Bethsabee. And when she was come in to the king, and stood before him, 29 The king swore and said: As the Lord liveth, who hath delivered my soul out of all distress, 30 Even as I swore to thee by the Lord the God of Israel, saying: Solomon thy son shall reign after me, and he shall sit upon my throne in my stead, so will I do this day.
